About the property

Cabin with Lakeview is the perfect getaway for a weekend or longer.

Continental Breakfast for 2 for stays of up to 6 nights is included in the rate!

Located on the grounds of Gulf Breeze Alpaca & Sheep Ranch, this cabin is the 2nd cabin opened for rental on the property, check out our other listing #4678050. With either unit, make the most of your stay at the ranch by scheduling a tour of the property. Be sure to stop in at the Fiber Arts Studio & Farm Store. You'll find the whole experience to be relaxing both day and night. Visit the farm page on FB or go to to keep up with the latest goings on!

With the cabin overlooking Lake Corpus Christi and the sights and sounds of city life are miles away, you can easily forget you're really only a half hour from Corpus Christi, Beeville, Alice or George West and only minutes from shopping and restaurants in Mathis or Orange Grove.

Completely furnished with over stuffed sofa, rustic furniture and well equipped kitchen, you'll lack for nothing during your stay, whether it's a weekend, a week or even a month! Fiberholics will love spending time in the Fiber Arts Studio & Yarn Shop! Join the knitting or spinning circle during your stay. Or sign up for classes and plan a weekend as a fiber retreat!

This cottage is within site of a couple others as well as the main building that houses an apartment, shop and Fiber Arts Studio. The open floor plan makes it easy to accommodate up to 4 adults. A screen can be positioned to provide different levels of privacy if desired. When available, guest may make arrangements with the owner for additional sleeping options. Make plans for your Girl's Get-away weekend or a family retreat!

There is Wifi and Satellite TV but you may prefer to spend your time exploring the farm, or just sitting on your front or back deck, or on the Patio at the main building.

The owner's home is located approximately 1/4 mile from the cabins. Security is provided by self locking gates, security cameras around the entrance of the property and of course a pack of Livestock Guardian Dogs. Still, an occasional deer or fox will slip by to get a drink at the pond nearby.

Stargazing is a must during your stay. If skies are clear telescopes are set up for some breathtaking views of our solar system and beyond! Inquire with the owners about weather conditions. No matter what the weather brings, the property is in the path of many migrating birds. The owners are creating nature paths through over 2 acres of natural wooded areas where you will be able to spot the many species that live there year round as well. The State Park (Lake Corpus Christi Recreational Area) is located a short drive away. It is a couple of miles as the crow flies. The Bayfront at Corpus Christi is 35 miles from the farm, with the Northwest edge of the city just 26 miles. Padre Island National Seashore is another 25 miles from the city. Other points of interest are the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge (60 miles) and Rockport (50 miles). The King Ranch is 40 miles to the south east. And San Antonio is 90 miles to the North. The farm is only 4 miles from the small town of Mathis and 12 miles from Oranage Grove, Tx. You'll find grocery stores, restaurants, gas and other shops in both.

About The Owner

Mark and Lyn have owned and operated the Gulf Breeze Alpaca (and Sheep) Ranch at Lake Corpus Christi near Mathis since 2007. Soon after welcoming her alpacas home, Lyn developed skills in processing their fiber herself, starting with learning how to shear them. After learning how to shear and process her own fiber into batts, roving and yarn, Lyn opened her shop and studio where she teaches spinning, knitting and wet felting & needle felting. She offers hand made and commercially made items and yarn in her shop at the ranch. Mark and Lyn offer tours of the ranch to groups and families throughout the year. This year they have added vacation rentals to the mix.

The owners purchased the Property in 2000 - but this cabin was built in 2017.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2000

Why The Owner chose Lake City

The Christophs sought a piece of land within a 50 mile radius of their home in Corpus Christi where they could get away on weekends. They found this spot, a five acre tract of unimproved land that was located across the road from Lake Corpus Christi and immediately fell in love with the area. After purchasing the land in 2000, they spent weekends using a travel trailer, later to build a house, where they live now. They purchased additional 10 acres in 2008, and the 15 acres that connected it all together in 2010.

What makes this cabin unique

The property is located within the flight paths of many migrating birds. There are many beautiful birds that live in the area year round. Green Jays, Kiskadees, Mockingbirds, many different finches and water fowl make their home in the area surrounding the lake. Wildlife is abundant, especially since the State Park is located less than 2 miles to the South of the property, there is also a Nature Preserve that runs along the river on both sides of the Wesley Seal Dam. Being within 50 miles of the Gulf Coast, the property enjoys cooling breezes coming from the Gulf waters, a semi-tropical environment. Being also on the edge of the dry line gives the property some semi-arid benefits such as a little dryer days in the summer.

No matter what time of year, the benefits of living and working in the country are incalculable.
