Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this wonderful cabin and location, enjoying every moment. First the secenery, the large pecan trees and calm tranquil river was breathtaking upon our arrival. I loved the cabin! The cabin immediately instills you a very warm and cozy feeling, and is well equipped with just about anything you need, comfy bed and great outdoor patio. It was a wonderful weekend, one night sipping on wine out on the patio gazing upon the stars, to having a nice bbq under the trees, enjoying nature, and having a relaxing tube ride down San Marcos river. Only regret not bringing our dogs to enjoy the vast land to roam free and play with cute squirrels:)

Ringing In the New Year!

  • 4 of 5

This is a peaceful and quiet getaway from the hussle and bussle of the city. My husband and I were looking for somewhere to relax and start out the new year. We found it! Even though the weather was not the best, we definately had a good time! From fishing on the river that is literally in your backyard to sitting around the fire pit and enjoying the star filled nights. The owners were very welcoming and helped us with whatever we needed. Definately a place we will be coming back to!

Just Right & Just In Time Vacation Haven

  • 5 of 5

This is a riverfront gem. We were looking for a vacation rental on the river out of the hustle and bustle of summer crowds. This location surpassed our expectations. The cabin is very comfortable and has all items needed for a short or long stay. The screened porch is a wonderful area to pass the hours with a great view of the grove of trees and the river beyond. The riverfront is a short walk in the shade. My husband enjoyed fishing all week but the "catch of the day" was limited and he decorated a few limbs with tackle but enjoyed every minute relaxing. The water is deep for swimming and kayaking due to a dam close by. Entry with the kayaks was doable at one end but we used a ladder (that we learned to carry along) to enter and exit the water when we went swimming. There is lots of wildlife - birds , turtles, cows across the river, and a few "others" that we didn't bother and they didn't bother us. Do bring along the bug spray for when the breeze doesn't blow. There is plenty of seating on the upper deck to watch the fireflys at night and on ground level around the camp fire ring. Linda and Roy are very accommodating and were available to greet us upon arrival with a quick run down of the facilities. We enjoyed a BIG thunderstorm while we were there getting a great lightening show but felt completely secure in the cabin. There are neighbors down the way but plenty of space between properties. We had all the privacy that we wanted. As for the business part . . . Linda was quick to respond to emails and the payments transacted without problems. The damage deposit was promptly refunded after we returned home. I can easily recommend this property owner and cabin to friends and family. We look forward to visiting again!

Heavenly peace & quiet

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had everything we needed. The bed was sooo comfortable. Loved the deck for watching fireflies in the afternoon. The owners were helped us with all of our needs. The river is right in the back yard allowing us to launch our kayak and paddle a fun river. Spent 4 nights and hope to do it again!!

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at many a beautiful place in Texas in the past 40 years: lakes, rivers and beaches. But none have been so beautiful as this property. Our host Linda was so welcoming & accommodating during our 3 night stay there. The cabin was very comfortable with everything you would want or need, and the grounds were,,,, well,,, just spectacular!!!

This Cabin is a Hidden Gem!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking to get away from the hustle bustle of the city.

When I saw this cabin on line, I knew it was just what we were looking for.

We greatly enjoyed the new deck, the expansive grounds, and grilling in the evening. Linda is an excellent host and thought of all the little details you need to be comfortable in a home away from home. We were able to kayak on the river beside the cabin and saw no other canoes or kayaks! That is exactly what we had hoped for! (Rental place is 5 minutes away.) You are also 30 minutes from Austin. All in all, I think that the location would be great for anyone wanted a relaxed, away from it all setting!
