About Karl Dickinson

The photo is my sister and me around 1967. I live here in Hunt, TX and co-own and operate with my sister, from Austin, the Lincoln Hunting Ranch in Encinal, TX as well as this property.

Karl Dickinson purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Karl Dickinson chose Hunt

This place was purchased as a summer get-away by our grandparents, who cotton farmed in the Valley. It was convenient for them since their daughter (our mother) was a camper at Camp Mystic in the mid 50s. It has been a wonderful summer spot for us for 50+ years.

What makes this cottage unique

One of many unique benefits is having the bluff on the other side of the river. Not only is it fantastic to look at but it secludes our place more since there are no improvements there. Another plus is the yard. Having flat land in the HIll Country is sometimes hard to come by so having a flat yard makes it fun for kids to play on. Being across the highway from Camp Mystic and a couple of miles from Crider's Outdoor dance Hall and Rodeo makes driving there... or walking there a breeze.

Fredericksburg is a short drive away as well.

Review of Kipp Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our third trip this summer. We love it like it was our own place and we take care of it as if it were ours. Karl is a wonderful person and we have enjoyed making his friendship. As long as it is available we will use it, and not just in the summer.

Our family had a great weekend at the river. We had plenty of room inside to play games and eat. The outside was spectacular, everything was provided for a fun time on the river.
We plan to return next summer!

Paradise on the Guadalupe

Another couple joined us for a weekend getaway and we were all thoroughly satisfied with this rental. The setting was so peaceful and relaxing. It was just what we needed. The house was well stocked and the patio on the river was awesome. We will be back!

Went to the Kipp Cottage not knowing what to expect. It was more beautiful than the pics posted by Karl. Wow! It was fully stocked, from the canoes and kayaks, to the BBQ pits. The backdrop of the river behind the cottage was breathtaking. Water crystal clear you could see the boulders, to the fish at the bottom. Leave the blankets and pillows at home, the place has plenty of extras. The hot tub is in a perfect location overlooking the river bank down the hill. If you have trouble getting in and out of bathtubs,there is a walk in shower stall over in the laundry room. The bathtub in the main house is quite tall and cumbersome getting in and out of if you're elderly. Lost Maples State Park
is 30-40 minuets away. Its perfect for an exhilarating hike or bike ride. Oh, bring plenty of water and trail mix for energy, you're gonna need it. We are definitely going back if we can reserve it. It seems to be booked solid for the holidays and peak season. We went in late February and got lucky with the weather being perfect.

Owner's Response: Glad you used the shower over in the laundry room because not too many people do. I hope the water heater was plugged in! It is my favorite since it's roomy. Winter is a unique time to come since the leaves are off the trees. You can see the bluff across the river and the color of the river seems more vivid. It is a guessing game as when to book a reservation due the constant fronts that arrive in the winter. It could be 20 or 75 degrees. Waiting a couple or 3 days beforehand, like you did, is sometimes the best.

Relaxation on the River

  • 5 of 5
The house and property are very well kept. River front clean and manicured. Rowboat and kayaks were great. We brought a croquet set and kids loved it. Fireplace wasn't working but owner informed us ahead of time. Generous with towels and blankets. Beds are very comfortable and kitchen well stocked with pans and cookingware. Will definitely come back for some R&R!
