Wonderful place and very peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a few days prior to Thanksgiving to reconnect and spend some quality time together away from work and kids. It was awesome - a great place to just hang out but also a good jumping off point to go to Garner State Park and Lost Maples. The cabin was comfortable and we were able to relax and kick back. We will defintely keep this on our list of places to visit again.

AH-MAZ-ING Clamping!!!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Gary were the absolute perfect, hospitable hosts!

The cabin was cozy and charming.

The cabin is tucked away in the most picturesque and beautiful setting - the pictures don't even begin to do it justice.

All amenities are there at the cabin; lots of clean towels and linens. The wine was such a thoughtful touch! We were able to listen to music, watch tv and also use WiFi. The view and soothing sound of the water from the dam was magical. The view of the canyon and trees was beautiful. I would and have already recommended this property to my friends!

Cooking outside was a cool, rustic experience.

And the hot tub was such a relaxing treat!

We are DEFINITELY coming back.

Thank you, Chris and Gary for your wonderful hospitality!!

Recommend you have an SUV or truck to drive over the low water areas.

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 & 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.
