Relax in Style ~ The Chimney House on the River!

Bedrooms 1
Space 400 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

The Chimney house is brand new construction, thoughtfully designed for the perfect river get away. Located just off the banks of the Dry Frio (which is NOT dry!) You will find everything you need to rest, relax and enjoy your time at the river.

The Chimney House is a one room cabin with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, queen bed, two single beds in the loft and an amazing front porch perfect for watching the sunset with a cold beverage or a nice family dinner. The porch has a huge outdoor sofa sectional and a outdoor dining table. There is also a charcoal grill with all of the necessary grilling tools. This house is perfect for singles, couples or small families. ***Children should be old enough to safely climb a ladder if they plan to sleep in the loft.

The lot that this house is on goes all the way down to the river, although it is about 500 feet away. It is an easy walk down to a beautiful waterfront! The community owns a one-mile stretch of the river with common area on either side which is yours to explore while you are guests at the Chimney House.

***There IS Air conditioning. There IS NOT internet, cell service or TV***


How far is the river from your house?

~ Our house is located on the river but it is about a 500 foot walk down to the waterfront.

How deep is the river?

~ The waterfront at this house is one of the best swimming spots on our section of the river. It is a mix of shallow up to about 4-5 foot swimming holes. The community owns a mile long stretch of the river that you are free to explore! Exploring the river is one of our favorite family activities!

Can you go tubing there?

~ There are definitely float-able spots in the river but you cannot do a point-to-point float in our river. If you would like to do that, your best be is to drive into Concan.

How far are you from...?:

Concan - 25 minutes (nearest gas station and basic groceries)

Garner State Park - 30 minutes

Leakey - 40 minutes

Uvalde - 40 Minutes

San Antonio - 2 hours

Austin - 3 hours and 15 minutes

Houston - 4 hours and 45 minutes

Dallas - 6 hours

Is this a good location for children?

~ This is an excellent location for children! Due to the river depth, there are sections that are good for both younger children and more experienced swimmers. Children are absolutely welcome.

Are pets allowed?

~ Pets are allowed with prior approval. Pets must be house broken and well behaved. Pets are not allowed to wander out of owners sight. *Also, there is a very friendly dog that lives next door and is usually there on the weekends. Your pet should get along with other dogs if you plan to bring them.

*** I must warn you, this house is 25 minutes from the nearest gas station and 40 minutes from the nearest grocery store. It is in your best interest to plan well and bring everything you will need for your stay so you can stay put and enjoy your visit.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Enjoy being away from everything. Sitting outside in the evening and watching the stars. Walking along the river banks was great fun, just wish there had been a little more rain in the area, the river was very low. But we enjoyed gathering rocks and just floating.

Just what the family was needing!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, the cabin as comfortable as can be. My son loved the fact the cabin was at a walking distance to the river. The weather and water were amazing just right. We can wait to come back.

Charming and just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for our family! Our two boys loved climbing the ladder to the bunk and enjoyed running around outside and playing in the nearby by riverbed. Short distance to Garner State Park and it was nice to be off the grid for a few days and focus on family. Thank you for sharing your cabin!
