Ruby and I originally came across this property with other family members as we were looking for a place between Austin and Dallas where we could spend our Easters together as a large family.. We had this property for a number of years just clearing and working on the property with family and friends until one Easter when Grandpa Sanchez showed up with a shell of a building that he built in his backyard and transported up here in pieces. Ruby and I finished this building, which is now the bunkhouse. Our builder and friend Pat Small built the small kitchen and bath for us . Grandpa has since built the pavilion that we now use as well.
Richard and Ruby Franco purchased this cabin in 2005
This location is perfect to meet our family for weekends together and such, since we live in Austin and Ruby's sisters and their families live in the Dallas/Ft Worth Area. They also own 3 traditional cabins in this area as well.
The design of this cabin is very different from most vacation rentals as the bunkhouse is separate from the kitchen and bath, and connected by a wooden walkway. I guess what we have is more of a small campground / compound than a traditional cabin.
Our Cabin is the last in a series of 4, with our cabin designed for singles, couples, or small families.
We had a wonderful weekend get away! Glad we found you. We will tell our friends!!
This is a great place to get away and just be in Texas nature. You cannot see any other structures from this spot. We saw 8 deer go across the field in front one night and we were treated to yellow monarch butterflies during the day. The cabin is very nice, the kitchen is well-equipped, there is a hammock, and the pictures are true. Note that the kayak is best for younger people who are able to drag it to the shore (about 100 yards) and back up the bank of the lake! The only other down side is that there is nobody to call if something is wrong, but there did appear to be caretaker who comes to clean cabins in a golf cart so they must live nearby. Overall it was a unique experience that was well worth it!
Even though it was only an hour away from Dallas, the peace and quiet made it seem much farther. The hammock was my favorite for reading and stargazing. The walk to the lake took 5 minutes, and we saw fresh deer tracks one morning.
I appreciated the little touches, like the lights setup on the porch, and the shampoo/conditioner and condiments available.
I would recommend checking the inventory at the cabin, before going shopping, as you may not need to buy some things.
I'll be going back with my husband and dog, it was a wonderful place to reset.
Wow! Just got here today and I am so excited for the rest of the weekend! The cabin is fantastic, so much open space for the dogs to run, lake is super close too. Thanks for sharing your perfect little escape from reality space with us!!!
Awesome little place to stay. Very private, very nice and the folks are very accommodating. A+++++
We loved this place, so peaceful. We also enjoyed visiting the small surrounding Texas towns. (Whitney, Hillsboro, Meridian). Thank you!
