ABOUT YOUR HOSTS
Your hosts of the Star House are Kathy and Wayne Rossi. We look forward to having you stay at the Star House or in Stella, our vintage Airstream. After the sun sets and the constellations sprinkle into the night sky, you will understand why we call our special place the Star House! We want you to have a great experience and will make your stay as relaxing as possible. We do request that you please sign the guest book to let us know how we are doing.
We are establishing this location as a Wildlife Habitat. We are always in the process of improving the land to encourage the trees and vegetation to flourish which in turn helps to feed and house indigenous wildlife known to these areas. See wild turkey, fox, deer, Mexican free-tail bats, birds galore, and so much more. You never know when a deer will be at your back porch greeting you with your first cup of coffee!
Wayne is a metal sculptor and is the owner of D.S. Iron Works for the past 30 years. During your stay, feel free to visit his working studio and enjoy looking over his original, whimsical animal sculptures as well as a variety of uniquely regional - mountain, Native American, cowboy, and coastal - home and garden furnishings such as lamps, bookends, business card holders, fireplace screens, furniture and accessories.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
"Amazing Home, Views, and Hosts!"
My 15 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week as part of our mother-daughter spring break adventure and it was EVERYTHING we expected and MORE! Kathy and Wayne are incredible hosts! We stayed in Star House and it was perfect! Amazingly decorated, immaculately clean, and fully supplied with everything we could possibly need and then some! They have truly thought of everything to give this place a feeling of both a unique experience and being at home! The views are spectacular! During the day you have the incredible views of the landscape and at night the view of the stars is beyond words! An amazing place to stay, out of the way and in the middle of everything all at the same time!

"STELLA WAS A TREAT"
We reveled in the details of this vintage airstream. A treat alone. We slept wonderfully!
Add the scenery and sounds of Mother Nature ~ cherry on top!
I set my alarm each morning to watch the sunrise over the ravine. Breathtaking!
The moon seemed to glow a bit brighter here and stars seemed close enough to touch.
We shopped the local stores on Mercer St. and sampled yummy food at recommended restaurants. I could have sat on the front porch all weekend and been happy as a clam.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
"HEAVEN ON EARTH"
We travelled from Missouri to Austin with no idea of what to expect upon arrival. After a very long drive through Texas, we were pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful area we would be staying in the upcoming days. Kathy and Wayne’s place is breathtaking with spectacular views that cannot possibly be captured in pictures. The Star House was perfect and Kathy was so thoughtful to leave so many special touches and accommodations to make us feel right at home. We will definitely return!
