Enjoy listening to the water flowing from the private dam spillway. The deck is perfect just for hanging out, watching the fish and birds below, or entertaining and cooking on the grill.

The very charming cabin can sleep 3. There is a very comfortable queen bed, and a single sleeper sofa with a memory foam topper. There is a small refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishes, and utensils. Also, television with basic Direct TV,ceiling fans, A/C, and electric heaters. Furnished in rustic decor, it boasts a beautiful large stained glass window emitting soft light into the room.

Very nice decks and a private hot tub, out door shower.

Upon your arrival, enjoy wine waiting for you in the cabin.

Wonderfully Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located in a beautiful setting in the Texas Hill Country above a dam and trickling creek. It was just what we needed for a relaxing "R & R Weekend"!

Chris and Greg were the perfect hosts. They were very accommodating and even had a beautiful floral arrangement and a bottle of wine waiting for us as we arrived.

The cabin was very comfortable and cozy.

We totally enjoyed our stay and are planning on returning in the future.

The property is absolutely beautiful...everything here is just like it says A Mini- Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming here for the past 4-years...vacations & honeymoon...the cabin is simply adorable and just perfect for a couples retreat. If you like to just get away from it all and relax, then this is the place for you. Chris & Gary are the best...very kind, thoughtful and generous. We will vacation nowhere else as we have found our mini-paradise.

Thank you Chris & Gary for making our vacations for the past 4-years just what we wanted...p.s. Bear, kiddo & Levi are great too.

Second year in a row and even better than before!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Gary are fantastic hosts, making themselves as available or as scarce as you need. The cabin itself is just as gorgeous as I remember from last year and, even though it rained a little bit, it was still incredibly cozy and satisfying. There were HUNDREDS of hummingbirds, way more than last year, and watching them flutter around and get into little arguments is such a peaceful way to pass the time. Otherwise, we ate a ton of great food utilizing the mega-grill, we floated the Frio (no one else was on the river the entire 2-hour float!), we read a ton and played a bunch of board games. If you need some time away from everything, some time to gather yourself and to find some peace, Chris' cabin is what you need. Absolutely highly recommended.

Very nice and relaxing and beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Chris,

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed your home, thank you so much for sharing! It was a pleasure meeting you and Gary and of course the dogs and chickens (yummy yard eggs for breakfast). Our expectations were exceeded from arrival to departure and I would highly recommend your cabin get away.

I very much appreciate the wine, the ambiance, decor, gorgeous nature views, the sound of water spilling over the dam and birds, especially, the hummingbirds were a pleasure to watch.

I can't decide what is at the top of my list, sipping wine in the hot tub while watching the sunset view, hiking, or taking pictures of the gorgeous flowers.

Also, thank you for allowing us the use of your boat on the lake, for the use of the rocking chairs (so relaxing) and for taking the time to share your artistic projects.

The purchase of your beautiful art piece will forever remind me of the special time we had in your cabin.

Relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is an off the beaten path delight. The perfect place to get away from the stresses of modern life and enjoy the silence. Actually we appreciated the sounds of rushing water from the creek below the cabin and the multitude of birds. Very scenic hiking trail and our hosts were super helpful and friendly. We loved it and would recommend.
