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.
