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. Spring 2017 - Much improved driveway now - gravel base is suitable for mototcycles. A few bare areas, but easily avoided. No more mud!!

Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this sweet little cabin. Everything is so peaceful. A perfect place to get away from everything and enjoy the nature around you. We didn't get to swim in the creek as much his time due to the rain, but we did enjoy the hot tub and views! Bed was comfy, and we loved watching the DVDs! We liked driving into town to shop.

We decided to come this time for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. Since this was a big day for him, I wanted to make it extra special. I messaged the owner, Patricia, and she agreed to decorate the cabin! When we walked in, my boyfriend was so surprised and happy and it far exceeded my expectations! Thank you to Patricia for that!

We will be back many more times and would recommend this place to anyone.

Thank you Patricia and Jon!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is so peaceful. We needed a get away from the world and this was it. Watching the water from the hot tub or swing is such a calming feeling and the cabin is set up perfectly. We will be back many times and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to escape and enjoy nature. Thank you so much Tricia for sharing the spot you got away to for 2 years and enabling us to enjoy it as well.

very private

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice stay. We saw absolutely no one the entire time that we were there, except Tricia stopped by the morning we were leaving. This is exactly what we wanted. The water in the creek was nice and the best hot tub I have ever been in. Everything was spotlessly clean. Bed was comfortable. Enjoyed being able to take our dog with us since this cabin is pet friendly with a reasonable pet fee. My only suggestion is that on Home Away watch the price, as the advertised "average price" is probably not the nightly price.

Fun and relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend get away! The fur babies had a blast swimming in the river. We enjoyed having our phones off except to take pictures. We swam, fished, had great food and plenty of naps! The owners are amazing and we can't wait until our next trip!

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cabin right by the creek. The hot tub was relaxing and the creek was nice. We made a fire in the fire pit and cooked a steak. It was a very relaxing weekend and out two dogs enjoyed the space. The cabin is perfect for 2-3 people. Patricia was awesome, very accommodating.

We biked at Flat Rock Ranch (40 min drive in Comfort TX) and had Pizza in Comfort, TX at Comfort Pizza (40 mins). If you are in the area. def try their pizza.

A very heavy storm came through the morning that we were leaving that flooded the creek. Patricia was really sweet and kept us informed with storm updates. She even offered to let us stay in the cabin as long as we wanted until the storm died down. We will def. be back!

This was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. The cabin and hosts were great!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be coming back. The hosts were very accommodating, respectful of privacy, and extremely friendly. The cabin was clean and well-equipped. The access to water was very nice, and had it been colder we definitely would have enjoyed a fire in the firepit. Nothing to criticize! Can't wait to come back!
