About Lorna Main

My husband and I love to travel and see the world. We built the Cozy Cottage last year to offer other travel lovers a relaxing place to stay. My husband and I both grew up in San Antonio and have lived here most of our lives. We live on the 10-acre property where the Cottage is located and I run the event venue on the front part of it. The cottage is situated in the back with plenty of privacy and quiet surroundings.

Lorna Main purchased this house in 2014

Why Lorna Main chose San Antonio

My parents bought the entire 10-acres in the 1970s. My husband and I know live on it and operate an event venue here. We built the cottage because so many people that came out for weddings over the years have asked us if we have a place for them to stay overnight sometime. Everyone just falls in love with the natural surroundings that they want to come back and stay. The cottage was completed in 2014 on back of the property has always been such a beautiful, peaceful area and we wanted others to be able to enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

Majestic oak trees always swaying in a gentle breeze; peacocks and deer that frolic in the yard; the "Enchanted Forest" feel that has always been a part of this property.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. The surroundings were quiet, private, and country-like. Yet, we were close to all the golf courses, restaurants, shopping, etc. The cottage met our every need. As a bonus, we had two beautiful peacocks and two gracious hosts nearby.

Tranquil wooded setting.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage in a wooded setting, with a stream out the back door. We had a very relaxing stay at the Cottage. Lorna was always there to help or answer any questions we had. The deer and peacocks were always fun to watch. We would stay again.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give Lorna and Shawn, owners of Cozy Cottage, more than five stars, I would. They went out of their way to make sure my husband and I were comfortable, felt at home, and had every need met. They were warm, welcoming and truly gracious hosts in every sense of the word!

The cottage was beautiful, and the surroundings were enchanting with the brook running behind the cottage, white lights shimmering in the trees, and the peacocks showcasing their iridescent feathers.

The property itself is located along a quiet country road, yet a ten minute scenic drive brings you to San Antonio. This makes it perfect for those seeking relief from the hubbub of the city, yet having all its amenities close at hand.

We stayed the month of December and hope to be able to return again to this wonderful place! Thank you again, Lorna and Shawn for everything!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a baby shower in the cottage and it was a wonderful experience! The cottage was clean and well appointed with beautiful furnishings and such a lovely setting. Lorna was very helpful and even with a wedding going on the property the same day answered our questions in a timely manner. We highly recommend the cottage for a weekend getaway and wish we could have spent more time there.

Great house!!

  • 3 of 5

The house was great and Lorna was a great host. Only had a few issues with crawling bugs.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed hosting Maria and her family. The Texas summers do always bring bugs and insects that are native to the area, especially in the forested parts. Some small ants found their way inside, but we promptly treated and resolved the issue.

Lorna thank you so much for giving the Owens family an outstanding vacation memory. This place has everything you can ask for in an incredible atmosphere. The peacocks and deer await your arrival and they are right there to greet you for morning coffee or evening tea. Lorna is an amazing host and thanks for all your hospitality. We shall return.

Situated in a quiet hamlet halfway between 2 bustling areas. Just 10-15 minutes in either direction, you will find multitudes of shops, restaurants, theaters, nature parks, nightlife, grocery stores, and anything else you may need. Popular spots like the shops at La Cantera, Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Old Town Helotes are just a short drive away. The charming town of Boerne is a 20 minute drive, where you can enjoy the small town feel while walking along Main Street, eating in a restaurant along the river and enjoying wine tastings.
