                                                        The house has been beautifully remodeled. The hiking on the property with our dogs was a lot of fun. There are many fossils to be found in all the limestone. We only toured one winery, but there are many winerys to tour nearby. We had an absolute blast. Thank you for an enjoyable weekend.

                                                        This property was off the beaten path which is what we were looking for. The views were amazing especially when the sun was going down! The property was very clean but has limited tv channels and no WiFi, But that’s ok. Sometimes it is crucial to unplug and just enjoy nature! The property owners were very accommodating. I was also appreciative that the owners allowed pets because we can’t leave home w/o ours! Will definitely be back!

                                                        Truly paradise

                                                        April B.

                                                        Even the pictures don’t do this place justice, it’s beautiful. The cabin is so cute and clean, and the view is breathtaking. The owners are so nice and helpful. You must stay here, you won’t regret it.

                                                        What a great getaway from the big city! The views were amazing! The owners couldn't have been more attentive and welcoming!! It was so relaxing to enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch in the morning and to sit out by the fire pit to watch the sunset 🌅 in the evening!! There were so many charming little towns nearby and many brewerys and wineries in the area. I hope to stay at this property again next year!!

                                                        Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

                                                        This property is absolutely perfect. The house is in pristine condition and in an even prettier location. Teresa is so wonderful and helpful and it always just a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns. If you are trying to go to hamilton pool, enchanted rock, devils watering hole or any of the other various attraction located in this section of Texas, this house is in the perfect location to be your home base. The longest you have to drive to any of those locations is just an hour and a half! My fiancé and I got a engaged on this trip so this property will always hold a special place in my heart :). We will definitely be returning to this property and any others owned by Teresa and Brad again and again. I cannot say enough good things about this property or the wonderful owners :)

You were amazing guest and we hope you come back for your anniversary and any other time you want to get away! Congratulations! We are thrilled for you!

                                                        Awesome View!

                                                        Rachel B.

                                                        This is a great little cabin, out in the woods! It is on a hill with an awesome view! Great porch, and seating area overlooking the valley. There are TV's in the cabin, but we never even turned them on! We did have an isolated small issue, but the owners were on it immediately, and handled it perfectly. This says more to me, then never having an issue. Great renters, and we would stay here again any day. There is a long chalk rock road to the property, so don't worry about washing your car. It's all worth it once you reach the cabin.
