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***
