Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: The photo is my sister and me around 1967. I live here in Hunt, TX and co-own and operate with my sister, from Austin, the Lincoln Hunting Ranch in Encinal, TX as well as this property.

Why the Owner Chose Hunt:
This place was purchased as a summer get-away by our grandparents, who cotton farmed in the Valley. It was convenient for them since their daughter (our mother) was a camper at Camp Mystic in the mid 50s. It has been a wonderful summer spot for us for 50+ years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
One of many unique benefits is having the bluff on the other side of the river. Not only is it fantastic to look at but it secludes our place more since there are no improvements there. Another plus is the yard. Having flat land in the HIll Country is sometimes hard to come by so having a flat yard makes it fun for kids to play on. Being across the highway from Camp Mystic and a couple of miles from Crider's Outdoor dance Hall and Rodeo makes driving there... or walking there a breeze. Fredericksburg is a short drive away as well.
