Overview

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 tiny home

  • 5 of 5

After watching all the HGTV shows about tiny houses, we wanted to experience tiny house living. The house is exactly as advertised here. Beautifully finished and comfortable. Our three kids (ages 12, 10, & 5) loved the loft. The kitchen had full size appliances so it made cooking easy. There is no dishwasher but the home was stocked with paper plates, napkins, cups, and plastic utensils, all of which escaped our shopping list in San Marcos. We had a wonderful time and would stay again!

Property was like new. Clean and comfortable. Everything you need to call this place home away from home and more. Loft is very small but we were able to sleep two adults comfortably. Very pleased.

Best little place ever!

  • 5 of 5

If I could write this review in glowing gold letters I would. We were welcomed with a chalkboard that personally welcomed us. Carol has outfitted this places with everything you could imagine to make a wonderful stay. Q Tips, cotton balls, paper plates, extra towels, razors, deodorant, tooth brushes, dog bowels, dog treats, pet clean up bags, family games, and a great front porch with a fan are just a few of the things included that make this place A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! The kids enjoyed the loft that was equipped with a tv. And when they couldn't agree on what to watch, one would go downstairs and watch one of the two tvs there or entice the others with a selection of family games. There were night lights throughout the cabin so the kids were never scared when it was dark. I also loved that this little place had several pluggable fans available - I love sleeping to the white noise they offer. We did not take advantage of the charcoal grill outside but we've good another stay already and will take advantage of the.

One of the best parts of this little cabin was its location. It's a quite place to listen to the crickets chirp on a Texas sumer night and remote enough to see the stars shining - all from the front porch. But, you're only 10 minutes from San Marcus and from the river itself. Don't pass up this little gem.

Beautiful tiny cabin in the quiet country side

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this tiny cabin! It is beautiful, quiet, and comfortable. We easily slept five people and didn't ever feel that the space was too small. Carol has thought of everything you could need while you were there from dishes, to loads of extra towels, to toiletries you might have forgotten at home. We can't wait to stay here again. It was truly awesome!
