Bedrooms 2
Space 399 sq. ft.

About the property

Great tiny home... prepare to relax

The cabin is near the Staples Historic Park, Staples Historic Cemetery, and the San Marcos River (The owner does not provide access to the SM River). Staples is a quiet town. The population is 250 people. Be prepared to relax.

Even though the cabin is located in a small town, it is centrally located between Austin and San Antonio. You will be about 5 minutes from Martindale tubing, 15 minutes from the San Marcos Factory Outlet, 20 minutes from the Formula One Racetrack, and 10 minutes from Lockhart and Luling bar-b-que.

About Carol Wester

We live in Staples and are active in our community. We hope to show you the simplicity and beauty of our town.

Carol Wester purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Carol Wester chose Texas

This property is in downtown Staples. The city doesn't have any street lights or stores. Be prepared to relax and enjoy all the benefits of Central Texas, without the crowds. The birds, stars and sunrises are amazing. You can canoe from Martindale to Staples. This place is ideal for cyclist and nature lovers.

What makes this cabin unique

This house is part of a 'tiny town' that's under development. We have three other homes (on this property) if you have a group event.

Perfect little paradise in the hill country!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many cabins in the past 5 years. I must say this has been our favorite. Beautiful on the inside and out! Anything you could possibly need is provided and super clean! We enjoyed cooking out and sitting on the porch wirh the outside lights in the evening. Perfect little paradise in the hill country.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We took a short get away to Staples, TX. This was great! Carol does a phenomenal job taking care of visitors. She was always a text away with information or helpful tips. The cabin was clean and had EVERYTHING you might need for a few days away! We spent hours on the porch with a bottle of wine. We plan to come back again sometime! Thank you Carol!

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights at "The Cabin" tiny home with our four young children (twin girls age 10, boy age 8, and another girl age 5 and our small dog (which went with us every time we left the Cabin). Carol provides a very clean cabin and everything that you need. We enjoyed going to the nearby Stars and Stripes Drive-in, Rio Vista Park, Purgatory Creek Natural Park, and ate Bar-B-Que at Black's in nearby Lockhart. We all had a wonderful getaway and would recommend any of Carol's houses. When we left to return to our home in Fort Worth, we took the Hill Country Trail instead of the Interstate. We did not regret it. Hope to be back again. Thanks, Carol.

Beautiful as always, despite rainy weather

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay! This is my third time coming and I've stayed in just about every little house she has on the property. It was my birthday weekend, and rained a bit, but it was lovely. I love it here so much, I make it a point to come every chance I get! Thank you Carol, and I'll see you soon!
