Property description

Quiet Hill Ranch's 'Original Log Cabin' is just what the name implies…A scenic hide-a-way in the beautiful Texas Hills.

The simple & unspoiled natural charm of this 6th generation ranch is so special…It unplugs one from the 'rat race' in a tranquil & unpretentious manner.

RATES ARE 1 OR 2 GUESTS PER NIGHT
EXTRA GUESTS $25 PER NIGHT
CLEANING FEE $25 per cabin rented
TWO NIGHT MINIMUM
THREE NIGHT MINIMUM SPRING BREAK & HOLIDAYS

Your cozy one room log cabin is nestled into nature & has a 50 mile view of the Doss Valley arrayed in splendor before you.

THERE ARE THREE OTHER CABINS AVAILABLE FOR TOTAL SLEEPING FOR UP TO 28. see VRBO listings 495638, & 494674 to see the other three cabins or see 'ALL MY RENTAL LISTINGS' under the 'Owner Info' below.

Pets are considered but need prior approval & are charged just as an extra guest.

The Quiet Hill Lodge sits separate & very convenient to the cabins.

THE QUIET HILL LODGE IS AVAILABLE 24X7 AT NO EXTRA CHARGE...SWEEEET...:)

The Lodge's Ranch Room is the right place for feasting & fellowship with a rugged fireplace (firewood provided), antique wagon wheel/covered wagon furniture, books, games, puzzles, piano, & dining tables/chairs.

The Lodge's Mighty Kitchen has all you need to cook anything you want (except food:) with two gas stoves, triple sink, fridge & freezer, lots of counter space & a big prep table in the middle.

Gas & charcoal grills conveniently located outside the Lodge.

Outside amenities include ;
A limestone 'stock tank' pool (shared)
Campfire rings at each cabin (s'mores are a must do)
Picnic tables at each cabin
Playground with horseshoes-swing-slide-tower-basketball goal (shared)
Farm animals...kids love gathering eggs. (shared)
Wildlife observatory...a Texas top birding site.(shared)
Miles of hiking/mountain biking trails (shared)

Cycling is unsurpassed. A labyrinth of scenic, seldom traveled country roads lie just out our ranch drive.

Stargazing is a 'MUST DO' at Quiet Hill Ranch. The 2100' elev & no light or air pollution encourages one to pause & ponder the greatness of creation & increase (or introduce one to) the Magnificence of The Creator.

A massage from Linda, our licensed therapist, is another 'MUST DO'. Let her knead out those city knots in a courteous & professional manner…She's Tops!!!

Quiet Hill opens 60 scenic acres (part of our family's 1500 acre ranch) for our guests to enjoy.

Nature beckons one to enjoy it in every season of the year…NPR radio said our area has the most livable year round climate in the U.S. (We've said it for years:)

As you probably have seen by now, Quiet Hill Ranch is NOT your typical vacation rental destination.

Cindy & Jim are pleased to open our ranch's treasure chest of nature & amenities to encourage folks to relax, make some great memories, & strengthen the ties that bind…Y'all come!
