About Connie Medina

Never thought of myself as a "rural" or "country" girl, nor an "outdoors" person, until our father passed away, and I spent more time on this land. Over time, I realized the importance of connecting to Nature, paying attention to the messages Mother Earth provides us every day, if we just listen, open our eyes and ears, and hearts.

Connie Medina purchased this cabin in 1957

Why Connie Medina chose Trails End At Lake Travis

Our father loved this land so much. He worked so diligently to clear, clean up and prepare the land. He was not an aquatic type boat dock nor boat slip, no water skiing. He did have a plan in his head and in his heart...he prepared this land for his family. After spending time out here, I felt moved that I was the "Keeper of the Land", and all that entails--the importance of paying attention to our surroundings.

What makes this cabin unique

A serene place to just get away from the everyday hustle and bustle. An "unplugged" environment. The back porch...

The Woodlands, Texas

Rustic charm. Comfortable and contemplative surrounding.

  • 5 of 5

Connie does a great job of welcoming you into a small bit of serene space. NoTV! No WiFi! Some peaceful sounds playing as you walk in the place. This place is the definition of rustic. Wood fired fireplace, well kind of wood everything,and that’s a good thing. Did I mention this place is small. Ok cozy is a better definition. But it makes up this with a nice sized covered patio. Connie say the cabin is about 100 years old. Certain to be back.

Connie is such a good host and welcomes you with open arms. The place and view is just fantastic. We booked in January, and it was great getting away from it all. I recommend this cabin anytime of the year!

The property is outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. I am a wildlife photographer concentrating mostly on birds. This place is great if you’re a birder, photographer or just want peace and quiet

Connie is always there, even at 4:30 in the morning when we arrived last weekend. Exhausted!
