Utopia cottage description

Cozy 2500 square foot country cottage nestled on 2700 acre paradise in the Texas hill country. Hiking, hunting, fishing, and birding are favorite activities as well as photographing wildlife, especially from Lookout Point.

One king size bed, 4 twin beds, 2 hide-a-sofas. Can sleep 8-10.


Bandera embodies the cowboy in its strong rodeo tradition. Even today you'll often see horses tied to downtown hitching posts. Bandera County dude ranches offer a taste of the cowboy lifestyle with horseback riding, trail rides, and chuckwagon meals. Secluded cabins tucked away in the hills throughout the county are perfect for watching wildlife, listening to the birds, and gazing at the stars. At local honky-tonks, the music is lively, the dance floor is full, and the beverages are cold.

Garner State Park is only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy its matchless vacation facilities. They swim in the clear waters of the Frio River, scoot its rapids on inner tubes, rent pedal boats, and hike its fascinating nature trails.

Lost Maples State park is also only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate, which gives guided tours of the beautiful hill country it shares with Seco Springs Ranch.

In August 2010 Utopia was the site of filming for a movie called 'Seven Days in Utopia', starring Robert Duvall, Lucas Black, Kathy Baker, Melissa Leo, Brian Geraghty, Deborah Ann Woll. Known for wonderful birding year around; our area is a world - class birding & wildlife viewing destination! One of the best places to see many Texas specialty birds; including the Golden - cheeked Warbler, Black - capped Vireo, Vermilion flycatcher and all 3 King - fisher varieties! Nature Guides are available to take you on private ranches and properties

                  Bandera, Texas: Cowboy Capital of the World

                  In a rugged county filled with hills, rivers, and a sprawling lake, the small town of Bandera holds a really big place in the hearts of Texans. Located in the beloved Texas Hill Country less than an hour from San Antonio, Bandera reminds us of a different, more authentic, era, when a handshake was all the contract you needed, self-reliance was the norm, and chivalry was a given. There is a spirit of independence and individualism here that speaks of the cowboy tradition of hard work and hard play.

                  Bandera embodies the cowboy in its strong rodeo tradition. Even today you'll often see horses tied to downtown hitching posts. Bandera County dude ranches offer a taste of the cowboy lifestyle with horseback riding, trail rides, and chuckwagon meals. Secluded cabins tucked away in the hills throughout the county are perfect for watching wildlife, listening to the birds, and gazing at the stars. At local honky-tonks, the music is lively, the dance floor is full, and the beverages are cold.

                  Garner State Park is only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy its matchless vacation facilities.
