Enjoy this 2-story rustic, historic limestone cottage with all the updated amenities. Perfect for taking a break from the stresses of life or after an eventful day visiting SeaWorld, Six Flags, the Guadalupe River or the Alamo & San Antonio Riverwalk - all just minutes away. The loft sits next to the main house which was the home & studio of famed landscape painter, Robert Wood, in the 1930's & 40's. This little pocket of paradise is nestled right on the outskirts of NW San Antonio.
This historic rock cottage is a loft style with an upstairs bedroom with a comfortable King Bed and a unique "tin roof" ceiling and lots of windows. This was Robert Wood's actual art studio where he painted many of his oil masterpieces. Downstairs is an updated kitchen with granite counter tops, a renovated bathroom and a nice living room with leather couch and french doors that open to the rock courtyard with waterfall fountain and a rock fire ring. Your cottage also has high-speed wireless internet access and a flat screen TV with basic cable and local channels.
You will have access to the rock courtyard with the waterfall or sit around the fire pit during cool evenings. Washer & Dryer are also located on the premises. There are also two nostalgic bicycles to enjoy while exploring the country lanes of Grey Forest.
Please strip all beds that were used and throw linens in the center of the floor for collection. Please throw towels and washcloths in a pile on the bathroom floor. Please wash your dishes and leave them on the drying rack.
I am a television producer/writer/director who lives in Texas and Tahiti. I have traveled and worked in about 80 countries and love cultural immersion and meeting new people. I produced and directed the first few seasons of 'Survivor' on CBS as well as PBS's 'The Royal Tour' hosted by sitting Heads-of-State. I have a lovely and talented wife from an exceptional family. For all you cinephiles, my late father-in-law, Conrad Lafcadio Hall, was a multiple Oscar winning cinematographer who did such classics as 'In Cold Blood', 'Cool Hand Luke', 'Searching for Bobby Fischer', 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', 'American Beauty' and 'Road to Perdition', and I'm extremely proud of his body of work. (His father, James Norman Hall, co-wrote the 'Mutiny on the Bounty' trilogy, among other great novels.)
We're pretty low maintenance guests, but love to meet the owners if they like. We're going to be hosting soon hopefully as well.
Life motto? Hmmm. I'll have to think about that one, but I'll just borrow a couple of Victor Frankl quotes for now that inform my thinking, if not my behavior - (a) "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves," and (b) "The last of human freedoms - the ability to chose one's attitude in a given set of circumstances."
See you on the road!
