Pipe Creek Cabin is newly renovated with luxury linens and furnishings, library from a private collection, fully equipped kitchen. Services (maid, driver, chef, tour guide) can be arranged upon request. Pipe Creek Cabin is the perfect place for the person who wants to get away from it all. It is extremely private and perfect for the person who needs to finish that screenplay, book, project. Perfect for rest and recovery. Perfect for romance. There is no telephone, but there is strong AT&T cellular signal to service your personal cell phone or wireless internet card. There is satellite TV and an ipod dock. It is set on top of a hill on 12 acres. There is a spectacular view of the Texas Hill Country. It is rural property, so all wheel drive or SUV is highly recommended. The terrain approaching the cabin is steep and rough, but worth the drive. You will not want to leave once you get there, so bring whatever beverages and groceries you will need, park the car and relax.
The little things: There are hummingbird feeders during the warmer months and the little birds love it! There are a number of other birds in the area as well as resident rabbits, fox, deer and other wildlife. If there are any requirements that you have just let me know. Please remember this is rural Hill Country property and therefore great care needs to be taken when driving. The drive is steep and rough. A sports car will not make it.
Who should and shouldn't come: The person who is going to love this rural cabin has an appreciation for nature, art, serenity, the simple things. This person appreciates luxury linens, thick towels, lovely appointments, and privacy. Most anything can be arranged to make your stay exactly what you want, just ask and I will try to find it for you. The person who does not need to stay at this cabin is someone who wants a big night life, to drive back to the cabin after drinking, to entertain several people.
Extras: Meals can be prepared for you and left in the refrigerator for you to warm when ready. Drivers can be arranged if you want to go to San Antonio for a night with no worries about the drive home. Maid service is available on request. If I did not mention it in this listing, just ask. Most anything is possible.

Having grown up in San Antonio, I have always been close to the Texas Hill Country. This cabin was built by my father over a period of years. He used local craftsmen and took his time to make it the perfect retirement cabin. It is truly charming.
Susan Todd purchased this cabin in 1993
After my father passed, I considered the options for this cabin and ultimately decided that my father would have wanted to share the serene beauty and privacy offered by this property with others. It is my first and only short term rental properly. Fortunately, those that have stayed here treat it as if it were their own. I am always surprised at the manner in which I find the cabin after guests leave. It is always is such great condition.
One of the reasons I decided to keep the cabin is because the views from the top of this hill are spectacular and there are not many hills like this one. The hill is like a peninsula and the cabin is at the top and VERY end of the road. It is a 360 degree view. Utterly private. There is a video on You tube that gives you an arial view of the cabin. It is spectacular.
I am not really sure where to start! You have done an absolute wonderful job on this house. You have wonderful taste in decorating and I'm not sure what else you could do to make this house more perfect. My husband and I were here to celebrate our 17yr wedding anniversary and I am pretty sure this will be the one to remember! We will definitely be back and hopefully next time we will be able to stay longer than 3 days. I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and again thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share this wonderful place and making us feel at home.
Beautiful place. Flawlessly decorated. All the amenities. Wonderful escape. Bring your iPod and enjoy the sound system or relish the incredible peace and quiet. Nice to know most of the items are a part of the family. Susan was extremely gracious and helpful. This is roughing it in style!
This cabin provided everything we were hoping for and needing for a peaceful getaway! Our first morning there, we were blessed with the sweet sound of nothing! Absolute peace and quiet! A lot of times rental homes they are filled with leftover furniture and random items; but this cabin was truly beautifully and purposefully decorated! It was a treat to stay there! The kitchen had everything we needed, the pool table was perfect for the quiet evenings, and the large comfy bed was perfect for a long day of resting and doing nothing! If all of that was not enough, THE VIEW! No words for how stunning the setting was! A really beautiful cabin that I cannot wait to visit again! Thank you for sharing this cabin with guest!
My husband and I spent 4 nights at this lovely cabin as part of a 16 night birding holiday from the UK. The cabin was well equipped with lots of extras and good quality touches that made our stay really enjoyable. We took the opportunity to explore the Edwards Plateau and were able to visit the specialist birding sites in the area of which there were many. Woke up one morning, went out on the balcony and saw 4 turkey vultures hanging about just where the 2 chairs sit out front. They soon took flight. There were butterflies, black-chinned hummingbirds, cardinals, orange-crowned warber, rufus-crowned sparrow, white-winged dove, black-crested titmouse, western scrub jay to name but a few in the surrounding garden. Took the opportunity to see the Frio bats - fabulous well worth the visit walking in the footsteps of Sir David Attenborough. This is a terrific area for a birding holiday and although the cabin is a little way off the beaten track it all adds to the experience. Bandera was an interesting town and I bought my first pair of cowboy boots there! Great experience.
We love to travel and rent spaces that are representative of the area. This was all that and more. Remote and private with beautiful views of the Hill Country and tastefully decorated meeting both function and form. Everything was top-notch with minute attention to detail through-out the cabin, with particular attention given to the bedding and linens. Also everything in the cabin was new and very clean. Usually when we travel, we are anxious to get back home to our own beds, but this time we didn't want to leave! Highly recommended.
This place was booked for a relaxing getaway that was not so far from where I live. It was wonderful! The decor was western and beautiful, the pool table was fun, and the BBQ pit was the perfect addition so we could cook steaks! The scenery is gorgeous and this is coming from a person who lives in the Hill Country - this scenery was extraordinary! Love it and will be back - no doubt!
This luxury loft is secluded, but close to everything. It is located just 21 miles from Loop 1604 in San Antonio, 15 Miles to Lake Medina, 9 Miles to Bandera, 14 Miles to Boerne. 3 Golf courses in 20 minutes. Only 40 minutes to La Cantera golf and shopping. 20 Miles to 5500 acre wildlife area. This is rural property, so all wheel drive or SUV is highly suggested. It is at the top of a hill, at the end of the road with a 360 degree view of the Hill Country. It is very private. Great for rest, rejuvenation, relaxation.
Golf: Tapatio Springs is nearby and has been completely updated in 2011. La Cantera golf course is only 45 minutes from the cabin.
