About the property

Sharing Our Little Slice of Heaven

The Bandera Stronghold is located 5 miles from downtown Bandera on beautiful, spring fed Mason Creek. Wildlife abounds on this heavily wooded 8.5 acres. The Red Cloud Cabin (property i.d. #3926136) is adjacent to the host’s home. It features a full kitchen stocked w/ most needed utensils, condiments & coffee (since hosts are on site, they're happy to share anything you might need or have forgotten). The private back deck has a hot tub and overlooks the swimming hole on the creek. Red Cloud cabin offers a double bed, cozy dining for two in the kitchen, full bath with tub and shower combo, TV monitor with DVD, central air and heat, charcoal grill, picnic table and outdoor firepit. Your well behaved dog is welcome for an additional fee. All bed and bath linens are supplied. A roll away bed is available for a 3rd guest for an additional fee. See our other cabin listing, propery i.d. # 3928277 if you need a 2nd cabin. Enjoy a day of catch and release fishing, bird and deer watching and a dip in the creek followed by an evening of stargazing as you soak in the hot tub. No telephone or wifi, but decent AT&T cell service most of the time. At this time, the winding, country driveway is unpaved and bumpy and can be muddy in rainy weather. Motorcyclists be warned.

Quiet, Quaint, Getaway

This was our second Thanksgiving at the Stronghold Cabin "Red Cloud". Patricia and Jon are very welcoming and accommodating. The cabin is right on a little river stream...the water is crystal clear and beautiful. If you come in the Fall, you will spot deer and wild turkey on the property. They accept pets, (small fee), so we really appreciate traveling with our babies. The cabin is small but has everything you need to cook and enjoy a lot of relaxation. I would recommend bringing a couple small reclining camp chairs to sit in the living room if you want to watch a DVD, or you will have to lounge on the bed. The bed is a full size, but my husband and I had to sleep really close. We are used to a King, but it really isn't a big deal. There's a lot to do in Bandera and the surrounding area. We kayaked down the river at the Bandera city park, hiked at the nearby Hill Country State Natural Area (10 miles away). Take a walk downtown and check out all the little shops and restaurants. The Old Forge has great steaks !!! Patricia and Jon live in a house just next door but you'd never know they were there....they let you have all the privacy you need. Oh, don't forget to bring you swimsuit and sit the hot tub on the back porch! We love this place.

This was the BEST place for our honeymoon! We were on a budget and this was PERFECT! We saw wild turkeys, deer, and a giant turtle. The creek is beautiful! We were in a good location, not far from town. We hiked the hills, rode horses and kayaked in the Medina River (beautiful by the way!) I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone...we will be back. Patricia and Jon are awesome too, very sweet and the hot tub and lights on the back porch are a great touch :)

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is so peaceful and full of beauty. It was a very relaxing few days spent watching the red cardinals, fish, deer, and other critters that visit the creek! The cabin is very clean and the back deck was perfect to have coffee on in the morning. Our dogs were right at home and the owners made us feel very welcome. We will be back!!

Tranquil Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, rustic property was exactly what I was looking for, quiet, peaceful and every amenity you need. Spent my morning having coffee on the porch overlooking the banks of the spring fed creek, afternoons were enjoyed on a lounge chair in the shade or swimming. Close enough to all the local attractions if you want to sight see, shop or eat. Thank you Tricia and Jon for being kind enough to share your slice of heaven, I will be returning!
