The Wild Ram is located on 2 1/2 acres found just east of Fredericksburg. In 1847 Mormans led by Lyman Wight established the community of Zodiac on the Pedernales River, four miles east of Fredericksburg in Gillespie County. They built a storehouse, private homes, and laid out a series of communal farms. Floods destroyed Zodiac in 1851, and the Mormon colony moved to a site on Hamilton Creek in Burnet County. To this date only two homes remain on the property—”The Zodiac” is one of the cabins and your hosts want to share this cabin with you during your visit to the Hill Country.
This rustic two story cabin built in 1848 has two bedroom; one upstairs and one downstairs. Entering into the cabin is a fully equipped kitchen with a table for four. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed. The bath, also located downstairs has a walk-in shower and antique claw foot tub. There are two televisions—one in each bedroom ...all have Direct TV (basic).
Upstairs is a bedroom with a king bed. Just outside the bedroom is a large deck for enjoying the beautiful Hill Country hills and valleys. Your hosts say their favorite thing about their guest house is the peaceful solitude they feel here, watching the stars at night and smelling the candles from the candle factory across the highway.
