  • More About the Haus

    Elisa's Sunday Haus outsideThe Texas Parks and Wildlife Department awarded Elisa the official Texas Wildscape certification for her garden and 4 acres of wooded land and prairie. Her garden is filled with native plants, shrubs and trees that provide fruit, nuts, berries, seeds and nectar to a wide variety of birds, hummingbirds and butterflies. Sit around the tranquil firepit for stargazing.

    The Sunday Haus has a beautiful view of an adjoining meadow. The front porch is an ideal place for experiencing the sights and sounds of nature and for stargazing at night. Deer are often seen as well as soaring prairie hawks and the "songs" of the coyotes can sometimes be heard in the nearby woods.
