"I'm almost scared to leave a great review because this is a gem of a place! We went with our four sons ranging in age from 16-24 and they all said they would like to go back next summer. First the house, clean, well thought out, well stocked for a rental. Extra fridge downstairs is so appreciated and almost necessary since there's not a grocery store close by. An extra outside trash can or bigger size would have been helpful. We filled it and by Monday had some happy ants. We stayed four nights so shorter stays may not have this problem. Having no cell service was frustrating but nice to disconnect as well. Next time may get a Go Phone with ATT&T for emergency. Enjoyed the birds in the morning and saw shooting stars every night while relaxing on deck. Afternoon sun makes upstairs deck hot but downstairs is nicely shaded. We didn't have any problem with afternoon because we stayed late on the river. Finally owner was prompt with responses and accommodating which is always appreciated.
Next the river, it's wonderfully close and other reviews about it being tricky to get down too are true. Walk to easier areas would be short but we navigated the bank just fine. People with young kids or older less agile people will probably want the easier entry. It looks like there were stairs at one point but now they are literally in the river. Side close to house is "deeper", maybe waist deep and other bank has great area to sit and relax that is shallow. Deeper areas are close by as well. My biggest frustration was you are very close to Happy Hollow put in for floaters. They come in waves, mornings are busier and Saturday was really busy! Yes it's the river, it's expected, I was just unaware but now know for next year. Also I wasn't prepared for all the loud music the floaters bring. I enjoy the sound of the water, don't mind the music either just the volume of it:) they were all friendly too. We did float on Sunday which was fun. None of these frustrations were enough to ruin my fun or make me not want to return!
Beauty of house being so close is you don't have to pack cooler for the day! Hungry? Go back to house! Need more drinks? Go back to house! Looking forward to hopefully going back to the house next summer."

"This place is such a gem! We forgot about all of our worries while we were here for Labor Day weekend 2015. We went to Garner State Park, which is absolutely beautiful, we ate s'mores around the fire ring, we played board games inside, and played our version of "The Amazing Race" outside. I saw more shooting stars while I was there than I have in my entire life! I was a little skeptical about the outdoor shower, but DO EEET! There was just something so serene about being able to see the sky and the nature around you while washing up. Given the choice between a more luxurious cabin and the Four Frio Sisters Cabin, we'd choose the latter every. single. time. We cannot wait to go back."

"This is the vacation location that the family will always remember. Big open living areas * Windows with gorgeous private hill country views * Kitchen supplied with every need and convenience * Spacious bedroom arrangements upstairs for cozy sleep and more together times * Wonderful fireplace for a perfect fall or winter day * The great outdoors of hills, trees, a pond and a yard to play ... the owners are exceptionally kind and accommodating and their home is maintained with obvious care and attention to detail. In our party there were 4 adults and 5 children and we all were very glad to make our 2nd visit earlier this year. (It was so nice to see "Children Welcome" in the listing information.) Did i mention the wrap around covered porches both upstairs and down? Fantastic, especially on a rainy day! Thank you to the owners for allowing us this time to play, reflect and appreciate God's creation!"

"Forgot how prettty this part of Texas truly is and with all of the recent rains this year the Frio and surrounding area were especially pretty with the water flowing fast for some fun! Very relaxing house that had everything I could think of for a wonderful trip with the family to truly get away. Thoroughly enjoyed all the area had to offer. Visited Lost Maples and Garner which are both beautiful! Also tried my hand at road bike on FM 337, beautiful but not for the faint of heart or weak of lung. A wonderful trip in every way! Thanks!"
