  • Vacation Stay

    "My wife and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon until Tuesday morning. The room was pristine and everything we needed, and then some. The hosts were available to answer any questions such as where to eat or places to shop at. Really, this is a great spot to stay at if you are looking to float the San Marcos River and relax. We were in walking distance from the exit point of the river as well as restaurants, bars, and shops. The hosts have kayaks and tubes to use during your stay. They also dropped us off at the most upstream part of the river so our float could take as long as possible (the Saltgrass parking lot). My wife and I plan to stay at this very same location anytime we vacation in San Marcos."

  • Wonderful, relaxing stay

    "Our family of three stayed at this cute home. We had a wonderful time. The scenery was wonderful and it was truly a relaxing stay. We were also very close to Gruene and New Braunfels. The owners were great. We would definitely stay again. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to have the convenience of a home; but still close to everything!"

  • Beautiful Views

    "After spending the night in Alpine and then touring the whole region (Fort Davis, Marfa and Terlinqua Ghost Town) we are SO glad we chose to stay with Curt. he is just close enough to make Big Bend an easy trek and just far out enough that we felt a little like we were camping. All the friendly four legged hosts were a definite plus. Curt was generous with his time and stories and definitely made us feel at home. This will be our Big Bend spot from now on! Enjoy y'all!"

  • Very relaxing weekend getaway for our anniversary

    "You can tell Paula and Jim have went out of their way to make this "treehouse" a cozy place for couples to getaway. The place was very clean, updated, and just all around nice! We loved being able to hop in a boat and paddle out to fish, or just fish off the pier. We caught quite a few bass. You can buy farm fresh eggs from Paula and Jim and they are amazing, they also have biscuits in the freezer and homemade jam/jelly in the fridge that is complimentary. Seriously, the biscuits and jam were to die for :) free tours of the property are offered, just call and schedule a time. we did not get to take a tour of the property because we only stayed 2 nights and got their really late. For sure will have to do that next time. I LOVED all the ivy growing around the trees and the complete ground cover under "treehouse". It's just a beautiful place and Paula is the sweetest person to work with. Stay here, you won't regret it. We will be back!"

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
