Spring Break at the Cabin

What a fabulous trip. First the cabin – it’s gorgeous. Lots of space, meticulously cleaned/maintained, wonderful furnishings, two gas fireplaces, huge walk-in showers, wireless, flat-screen TV, great kitchen, comfy bedding – slept like a baby. The view from the wrap-around deck is awesome – look straight ahead and you see the mountain ridges across the river; look down and you see the river flowing by. In the evening the sun sets over the mountains and you’re watching from the deck. In the morning over coffee the sun hits the mountains as it rises. You can’t see or hear any of the handful of other cabins on the property – it’s just you and nature. The stress just flows out of you.
We enjoyed some nice hikes, some quality time by the river (RiverWalk Trail), and some family game time. Wish I’d brought fishing gear. Next time we’ll try the kayaking or canoeing also – and the mountain bikes. In the evenings we enjoyed an outside campfire and we only gathered wood when we wanted to – there was a big stack of wood near the fire-pit, and even a nice pile of kindling to get her going. How often do you get that with a cabin rental? The snow pictures on the VRBO site really make me want to go back in winter. I found it to be a very reasonable drive from the Dallas area. Depending on your route, make sure you avoid 144 like the reservation instructions suggest. I forgot about that advice and its 30 miles of ups and downs, curves and turns. Other than that it was smooth sailing. There is a filling station/convenience store 3.2 miles from the cabin. Don’t plan on getting all your food there, but it’s great if you forgot something. A great family get-away that we all look forward to enjoying again soon. You won’t be disappointed.
