Country Delight originally stood in Northern Kentucky. This historic and restful home is situated on 2 acres 8 miles west of Fredericksburg. The home features three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, sleeping six guests. This cabin is pet friendly. The timbers were dismantled, numbered, brought to Texas, and reconstructed on the current site shortly after 2000. The right room or "pen" currently used as the dining room, likely dates from the late 1700s and the left "pen", the current living room, is guessed to be added on during the 1800s. This type of double pen structures was also known as a "saddle bag". The dining room's south wall boasts an old door, likely the original door to the original one room home. The living room has a spacious fireplace (seasonal use only) with a crane which accommodates hanging pots for cooking. The space between the pens known as the "dog trot" was typically covered but left open to the elements on each side. When rebuilt, the "dog trot", or open area between the pens, was enclosed to incorporate a functional stairway to the upper level 2 bedrooms and a bath which were also added at that time. As part of the reconstruction on its current site, the shed roof was attached to the west side of the house to include a bedroom which adjoins the living room, the bath, and the large farm kitchen. Another addition was the east-facing long front porch, which provides a pleasant place to sit on mild afternoons and evenings, affording pastoral views of the countryside.
