WineHouse 290

Kick your feet up and laugh with your friends as you relax at the WineHouse290 bed-and-breakfast in Hye, Texas. Tucked away in a boutique vineyard, the 1924 farmhouse bed-and-breakfast features five guestrooms that showcase the best Texas Hill Country views and luxury linens for a perfect night’s rest. Spend the day visiting local wineries, shops, and distilleries and return to a warm bath in a clawfoot tub with pedestal sinks and locally crafted lavender soaps and lotions.


Enjoy amenities such as a large fully stocked kitchen and roomy dining room, plus lush living areas and breezy outdoor patios. Area farmers and ranchers provide delicious farm-to-table products for WineHouse290 guests, and a talented chef is available for specially curated meals and drinks upon request. Share a warm cup of coffee in the morning, a glass of wine in the evening, and sit under the stars to toast to the good life over the outdoor firepit.

A little history

The family ran a cotton gin that sat on the edge of the property. Remains of this structure are still visible on the east side of the property. At that time, Highway 290 was a dirt road and cotton was still growing in the Hill Country. The neighboring ranch was owned by the Johnsons, of which President Lyndon B Johnson was born. The President, just a boy at that time, would come and play baseball with the Dieke brothers.


The historic post office in Hye is still operational inside Hye Market, right across the street from the haus. Here is where the small town got its name. Hiram G. Brown established the post office and general store in 1886. Everyone called Hiram “Hye”, and it stuck. It was at this post office that President Johnson mailed out his first letter when he was just 4 years old. To learn more about our rich history, come visit and book your stay at the Hye-Way Haus.
