Tiny Home - 'The Cabin' (Small town charm with easy access to Central Texas)

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

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!

The house was exactly as described and the owner was very accommodating.

Very peaceful area with great trees that make the patio very relaxing.
