Peaceful taste of Texas nature

  • 5 of 5

We have been here three times now and are never disappointed. The cabin is cozy and the land is great but the true treat is access to one of the best rivers texas has to offer. Just miles from the spring that feeds it the San Marcos river is a true Texas treasure. Close enough to enjoy events in Austin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, Gruene, and even San Antonio. This rental is sure to please. Enjoy a bonfire on property or head into town, this place is great for everyone and Linda and Roy are more than accommodating. Highly recommended.

We had a great weekend just relaxing, cooling off in the river and playing with our dogs!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 2 dogs spent the weekend at this beautiful cabin! We loved being right on the secluded river! It was a great change of pace from the Houston hustle and bustle. Our dogs enjoyed running and playing under the trees and watching the horses. And we all enjoyed cooling off in the river! It was the perfect relaxing weekend! Just what we wanted. We will definitely be going back

Excellent Couples River Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I look for summer vacation locations that offer comfort, seclusion, nature and water. We found all these things at this location. We have been satisfied guests of Linda & Roy for the past four years. Linda continues to improve this property adding amenities and the grounds are very well taken care of. We enjoy kayaking, swimming, stargazing, BBQ, different animal sightings and just plain relaxing. Linda is available for questions or any issues (which we have had none) and offers us all the privacy we desire. We had a great time! Linda thanks for stopping by when we were getting ready to head home - I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Hope to cya one more time this year! JoNette & Tom / Weslaco

Looking for a romantic get away? Our cabin is a quiet relaxing vacation home that is centrally located between two metropolis areas, San Antonio and Austin. However, if you like the small town atmosphere, downtown areas in New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Lockhart offer antique shopping, outlet shopping, and. locally established restaurants. Our place offers small town atmosphere as its in Historical Staples,Texas population, 210. It's within walking distance of the historical park. But only 10 minutes from the city life of San Marcos and Lockhart.
