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.

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.

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.

Very enjoyable stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cottage for a week. We loved that it felt like we were staying in a rustic area while being only 10 minutes away from the highway, restaurants, and stores. My children loved getting up in the morning and looking out the window to check if there was a peacock or deer near by. At night, they enjoyed seeing the fireflies. The cottage was clean and well kept. I loved having a washer and dryer in the cottage. The shower was huge. We had a few small issues that Lorna took care of right away- which we greatly appreciated. We would love to stay here again on another trip to San Antonio. I would definitely recommend staying at Lorna's Cozy Cottage.

Quite and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this little piece of hill country bliss for 1 week. The accommodations were pleasant and peaceful. We enjoyed the wake up call from the peacocks daily and the stream on the backside of the property offered a child's playground for my son. Thank you again for your patronage and from my family to yours and best wishes in all endeavors.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cottage was a great place to stay! It's clean, comfortable, very nicely decorated and quiet! The deer and peacocks greeted us and kept us company throughout our stay.

I would recommend this as a wonderful place to stay if you are in the area for BMT Graduation from Lackland. It was an easy drive to the base, and into San Antonio.

After a long weekend of Air Force activities we were able to have my son take a short break at cozy cottage. We had a nice Sunday dinner with family and he was able to relax prior to returning to the base.

Lorna is also very nice and was quick in responding to my inquires about the property!

Thank you Lorna for sharing you're property with us!

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.
