The Bachelorette Pad
Where They Stayed

Ashley's crew rented a lake house in Kingsland, TX on the Colorado River. The house was a great location - about an hour drive from Fredericksburg and 30-minute boat ride from Lake LBJ. The rental had 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a pool, and a hot tub - making it the perfect bachelorette pad for Ashley's big weekend!
