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 Hillsboro

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 /Compound is the last in a series of 4, with our cabin designed for singles, couples, or small families.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

It was unusual to have the living space and kitchen/bathroom in two different buildings but got use to it except when it rained. Other than that the property was excellent. Unless you have 3-4 people the canoe wasn’t used too bad there isn’t a way to keep it down by the lake without having security problems. Loved the views atmosphere and decor. Would have liked to have WiFi or satellite but after the first day discovered we could live without it and just enjoyed nature. Hope to come again. You were right saying all you need to bring is food everything was in excellent order and the owners were so helpful in giving directions. Visited lake Whitney and went fishing then shopping in town while there

Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderfully relaxing weekend here. The first day we had turkeys walking past while we were sitting outside. The second day was spent fishing. It’s a short, well marked walk to the lake. There’s a 7ft hole about 10 ft out where we caught several 2+lb catfish. Some trollers said the cove just to the north has great bass fishing. The nights are clear and quiet. The cabin is cozy yet spacious. The kitchen is well equipped. Me and my wife are looking forward to booking again for our next weekend get away.

Perfect to unwind from day to day busy lives. Our 2 dogs were able to run without leashes making it nice for them. Cabin was clean and kitchen had everything you need.

Will return for sure

Nice get away

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely freezing so we didn't have an opportunity to enjoy to it's fullest. We will be back in the spring. It was as advertised secluded and quiet. Last minute plans changed so we brought our dog. He had a blast running through the wide open meadow and loved walks in the woods. Very well appointed and clean.
