On the Edge of History
Posted Jul 14, 2014
Chantilly Lace Country Inn offers a chance to revisit history. The inn is located in the small community of Johnson City, Texas, just West of Austin. Accommodations include separate rooms from the main building.
Johnson City is named after the early kin of President Lyndon B. Johnson. The city is the site of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park. The park contains his boyhood home and the Johnson settlement. Before venturing to the West towards Fredericksburg, enjoy a breakfast at the inn that is not to found anywhere else. Serving time is limited, so make plans to get and early start.
Federal Highway 290 takes you to wineries, the Johnson Ranch, the Texas Whitehouse, ripe peaches in early July, and shop till you drop in Fredericksburg. German and Bavarian food can be found there
Returning to the inn is easy and the setting is quiet. Depending on the season, sitting outside can be very enjoyable.
