About the property

1 bedroom - King Loft, sofa bed, 1.5 bath, perfect for two

Pipe Creek Cabin is newly renovated with luxury linens and furnishings, library from a private collection, fully equipped kitchen. Services (maid, driver, chef, tour guide) can be arranged upon request. Pipe Creek Cabin is the perfect place for the person who wants to get away from it all. It is extremely private and perfect for the person who needs to finish that screenplay, book, project. Perfect for rest and recovery. Perfect for romance. There is no telephone, but there is strong AT&T cellular signal to service your personal cell phone or wireless internet card. There is satellite TV and an ipod dock. It is set on top of a hill on 12 acres. There is a spectacular view of the Texas Hill Country. It is rural property, so all wheel drive or SUV is highly recommended. The terrain approaching the cabin is steep and rough, but worth the drive. You will not want to leave once you get there, so bring whatever beverages and groceries you will need, park the car and relax.

The little things: There are hummingbird feeders during the warmer months and the little birds love it! There are a number of other birds in the area as well as resident rabbits, fox, deer and other wildlife. If there are any requirements that you have just let me know. Please remember this is rural Hill Country property and therefore great care needs to be taken when driving. The drive is steep and rough. A sports car will not make it.

Who should and shouldn't come: The person who is going to love this rural cabin has an appreciation for nature, art, serenity, the simple things. This person appreciates luxury linens, thick towels, lovely appointments, and privacy. Most anything can be arranged to make your stay exactly what you want, just ask and I will try to find it for you. The person who does not need to stay at this cabin is someone who wants a big night life, to drive back to the cabin after drinking, to entertain several people.

Extras: Meals can be prepared for you and left in the refrigerator for you to warm when ready. Drivers can be arranged if you want to go to San Antonio for a night with no worries about the drive home. Maid service is available on request. If I did not mention it in this listing, just ask. Most anything is possible.

You can also find Pipe Creek Cabin on Facebook.

About Susan Todd

Having grown up in San Antonio, I have always been close to the Texas Hill Country. This cabin was built by my father over a period of years. He used local craftsmen and took his time to make it the perfect retirement cabin. It is truly charming.

Susan Todd purchased this house in 1993

Why Susan Todd chose Pipe Creek

After my father passed, I considered the options for this cabin and ultimately decided that my father would have wanted to share the serene beauty and privacy offered by this property with others. It is my first and only short term rental properly. Fortunately, those that have stayed here treat it as if it were their own. I am always surprised at the manner in which I find the cabin after guests leave. It is always is such great condition.

What makes this house unique

One of the reasons I decided to keep the cabin is because the views from the top of this hill are spectacular and there are not many hills like this one. The hill is like a peninsula and the cabin is at the top and VERY end of the road. It is a 360 degree view. Utterly private. There is a video on You tube and the Pipe Creek Cabin Facebook page that gives you an arial view of the cabin. It is spectacular. If you prefer to book the cabin directly thru me you can. Just send me a message.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I am not really sure where to start! You have done an absolute wonderful job on this house. You have wonderful taste in decorating and I'm not sure what else you could do to make this house more perfect. My husband and I were here to celebrate our 17yr wedding anniversary and I am pretty sure this will be the one to remember! We will definitely be back and hopefully next time we will be able to stay longer than 3 days. I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and again thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share this wonderful place and making us feel at home.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This cabin really is a hidden paradise. The home itself is beautifully appointed and comfortable, with incredible views of the valley around it. Definitely need to get there during the day as it can be a bit of a challenge to find at night, but once you do, it's safe to say you will not want to leave. The owner was fantastic, responsive, and incredibly helpful. Overall a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. Since you were there I have made significant improvements in the road (you can see a video on the Facebook page for Pipe Creek Cabin) and the exterior has been repainted. Please come back soon.

I'm not one to write reviews, but I was compelled to write one after visiting this home. It was truly a home away. The house was beautiful and comfortable. The scenery was breathtaking. Will definitely be visiting again.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and well-maintained - lovely spot. Don't rely on google maps to get there, though, because it may send you down the wrong path, like it did for us.

Owner's Response: Linda, sorry about Google maps. That is why I always suggest printing the old fashioned driving directions that are provided. I also posted a video on the Facebook page if the final part of the drive. Glad you enjoyed your time at the cabin.

The property is like home away from home without the hustle and bustle of everyday life and with a magnificent view of the hill country. We were in need of nothing. We'll be Back!

Car: necessary

This luxury loft is secluded, but close to everything. It is located just 21 miles from Loop 1604 in San Antonio, 15 Miles to Lake Medina, 9 Miles to Bandera, 14 Miles to Boerne. 3 Golf courses in 20 minutes. Only 40 minutes to La Cantera golf and shopping. 20 Miles to 5500 acre wildlife area. This is rural property, so all wheel drive or SUV is highly suggested. It is at the top of a hill, at the end of the road with a 360 degree view of the Hill Country. It is very private. Great for rest, rejuvenation, relaxation.

Golf: Tapatio Springs is nearby and has been completely updated in 2011. La Cantera golf course is only 45 minutes from the cabin.
