About the property

Sharing Our Little Slice of Heaven!

The Bandera Stronghold is located 5 miles from downtown Bandera on spring fed Mason Creek. Wildlife abounds on this heavily wooded 8.5 acres. The Crazy Horse cabin is adjacent to the host’s home, though very secluded. It features a full kitchen for "cooking/dining in" and is 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 holds the hot tub and overlooks the beautiful creek. Crazy Horse cabin offers a queen bed, cozy dining for two in the kitchen, full bath with tub and shower combo, TV monitor with DVD player, central air and heat, charcoal grill, outdoor dining table & chairs. 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, property i.d. # 3926136, Red Cloud Cabin, 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!!

Incredible little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our puppy spent 2 days at Crazy Horse Cabin and just loved it! We AirBnb/VRBO a lot and you never really know what you're going to get---Im happy to say this place exceeded every expectation I had! The area is beautiful and the property private, relaxing and peaceful. We had a great time sitting in the hot tub and then running down the hill to jump in the icy creek! The creek is beautiful and the babbling sound very soothing. The little cabin is unbelievably clean and well appointed--it had everything we needed to stay cozy on a chilly weekend, cook meals and enjoy the outdoor space.

Tricia also recommended hiking at the Hill Country Natural Area so we did. The hiking was great and we even got to cheer on some ultra marathoners that were running a 100 mile race through the park.

We will definitely be back to the stronghold! Thanks again!

Nice and quiet little part of texas

  • 5 of 5

The wife and i enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. A plus is it is only 5-10 miles from Bandera. The creek runiing by the cabin sounded beautiful.

Refreshing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A perfect and relaxing getaway for our 28th anniversary! Breakfast on the patio over the majestic creekside with singing birds and the bubbling waters under sweeping and cascading trees. Afternoon floating in the creek...more like a river, relaxing in the sun. Evening time grilling on the patio and watching the sun set and then melting the day away in the hot tub. Then wrapping it to an end roasting marshmellows and smores over the firepit under the summer stars. Life just doesn't get any better than this. You'll want to stop in Bandera to shop and eat, hit the apple store for apple ice cream and jams and or go to Kerrville City park on the river, visit James Avery store and museum, then eat at The Ridge up the road. Garner, San Antonio, Utopio and Canyon Lake all within an hours drive. Great cabin retreat and great location. Amazing time: we'll be back. Trish and Jon do an amazing job taking care to add the little touches that make their place a real retreat. They put alot of thought into the details and the extras to make their guest feel welcomed to this cabin getaway. Caring host who give you privacy but are a call away. Thanks Trish & Jon for sharing your little piece of heaven on earth with us!

Owner's Response: I have been meaning to respond to your wonderful review, I'm sorry it took so long. Words like this leave me nearly speechless! It makes all we do that much more special. The words "thank you" don't seem enough, but it's all I have, from the bottom of my heart! We look forward to having you again, Tricia and Jon
