The fireflies are here!
Nestled between the rolling hills of Austin and the historic sites of The Alamo City, Hen House Cottage is a private, rustic residence situated near the San Marcos River in Martindale, Texas, a quaint town known for its tight-knit community, interesting personalities and scenic views -- which have made it to the set of more than one Hollywood production. With a full kitchen, modern amenities (high speed internet, cable television) and enough room to accommodate four guests comfortably. Hen House Cottage is the perfect headquarters for an extended expedition into the many wonders of Central Texas, a haven for souls who enjoy river life and recreation, a convenient spot to get away from the pressures of the big city in a more relaxed environment, or simply a better alternative to impersonal, inconvenient and cramped hotels while doing business in the area. Local attractions include the well-trafficked outlet malls of San Marcos, nationally acclaimed barbecue restaurants of Lockhart, the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels and Texas State University -- home of the LBJ Museum, honoring one of its most famous students, our 37th president Lyndon Baines Johnson. The location offers easy access to San Antonio and Austin by the interstate or toll road. For those who would like to stay close to home during their stay at Hen House Cottage the cool waters of the San Marcos River are a short walk away, and you can enjoy the city park with river access, take a float with one of the tubing services, rent a canoe from a local outfitter, or soon enjoy a beer or coffee from our very own Martindale River Café and Mercantile, opening in the next few weeks!
