About Richard and Ruby Franco

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

Why Richard and Ruby Franco chose Texas

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Quiet and secluded describe it perfectly

  • 5 of 5

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.

Secluded and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with two dogs very much enjoyed our stay here. Very quiet and secluded-just what we needed! This was a last minute trip planned, but the owners were very quick to respond. Very much appreciated! Kitchen was fully equipped - had everything we needed. Thank you so much for sharing your home!
