Located on the pristine San Marcos River, our cabin is a relaxing retreat on the river. Enjoy the quiet half acre lot with views of the beautiful spring-fed river.
The cabin can sleep 7 and has two bedrooms, perfect for families. The first bedroom has a beautiful queen size bed with a lighted headboard. The other bedroom has a double bed with a twin size trundle that we like to call the 'kids room' because it is stocked with toys and books, perfect for ages 3-8 years old. There is one bathroom. The cabin has an open kitchen/living room floor plan(with a queen-sized sofabed) and a pool table. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a washer/dryer.
We have free wi-fi and a stereo system but no television. Enjoy pitching horse shoes while cooking on the smoker/grill. Whether relaxing on the deck or picnicking riverside, the cabin is all about the river.

About the owner: We are a family of four that have been enjoying this cabin as a retreat for 10 years. My family is originally from San Marcos. The Rio Vista park across the river was originally owned by my great grandfather, A. B. Rogers as Rogers Resort. There were vacation cabins along the banks of the river as well as water rides. After one of the major floods took the cabins away, he donated the property to the city of San Marcos. He also owned the land that was developed into Aquarena Springs by his son, my grandfather Paul Rogers.
Why the Owner Chose San Marcos: As a child growing up enjoying the San Marcos River while playing at Aquarena Springs, I experienced a peaceful and magical quality that I wanted to share with my family and friends. The property the cabin sits on is the last riverfront property in the family. We bought the cabin and had it moved to the property.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: There is nothing like the sounds of the happy river floaters one hears from the cabin's deck. We cut out the french doors from what used to be a wall because of the view of the river on the other side. Playing pool and watching the river float by is the best thing ever!
