Overview

About the property

Home, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Four Frio Sisters is a charming new house nestled on a hillside in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. You can enjoy the fantastic views and million dollar sunsets from a swing on the back porch or enjoy a game of dominoes with friends on the covered front porch. Roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, relaxing around the outdoor fireplace, playing Bocce, croquet, grilling steaks or sitting on a bench watching the wildlife and day dreaming are only a few of the outdoor activities available. For those youngsters and young at heart adults feel free to enjoy our teeter totter. At the end of the day you can shower under the stars in our private outdoor shower.

Once inside the house you can enjoy all the amenities of home with a Texas country charm. There is plenty of room to entertain around our wood burning fire place and large open loft. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, dinnerware, and cookware. There are books to read and binoculars to use for viewing the wildlife and birds in the Frio Canyon. Open the windows at night to enjoy the cool fresh air and sounds of the surrounding countryside.

Four Frio Sisters is only a few minutes drive to the Frio River, Garner State Park, and Leakey, TX. The Three Sisters Drive is also only minutes away with Lost Maples State Natural Area only 25 miles down the road.

There are year round activities in the Frio Canyon area ranging from tubing/kayaking the Frio in the summer, enjoying the fall foliage in autumn, hiking/hunting in the winter, and viewing wildflowers in the spring. The bird watching is fabulous year round. World Class Golf is available at Concan Country Club. Don't forget the summer time dances at Garner! Made in Texas!

Schedule your getaway to the Frio soon.

About The Owner

Diane and Farley grew up in Corpus Christi, TX and continue to call it home. The 'Four Sisters' are our daughters ranging in age 25 to 16. They were very excited when we decided to name our dream vacation home after them. We have been visiting the Frio River for as long as we can remember and decided to buy property and build our dream a few years ago. Four Frio Sisters is a home we built with our own hands and the help of many friends and family members. What a task and experience it was! We are so proud of our place in the country. We have already built life long memories with our family and friends. We are pleased that we get to share it with our guests. We know that those who visit us will be refreshed and leave with unforgettable memories. We stand amazed at the multitude of blessings God has heaped upon our family and give all thanks to Him for his grace and mercy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Hill Country

When driving through the Texas Hill Country we often think 'this can't be south Texas'. What a beautiful and wonderful part of the state. The Frio River is so majestic and soothing to the soul. It is also a great place to frolic and play for all ages. There is nothing like opening the windows at night to feel the fresh air and hear the sounds of the country. Leakey is the perfect getaway from the city. It is 100% Small Town America!

What makes this house unique

The sunsets are glorious! The panoramic views are fantastic. The Frio River is up! The solitude of being in the country is rejuvenating. Made in Texas!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the best getaway. No hurry, no traffic, no noise. But most of all the dark nights with only the stars to light up the grounds.

You'll quickly fall in LOVE!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVE this place! First stay was a birthday/weekend getaway in 2015, and it has quickly become an annual trip! Would highly recommend this property to those wishing to unplug from the world for a few days. The scenery is beautiful! If you enjoy hiking or bike riding, I would HIGHLY recommend you bring your gear! It's also a short drive to Concan and Garner State Park for some fishing, floating, and dancing under the stars! The cabin is also furnished with all of the essentials you may need for cooking throughout the weekend so no need to pack the kitchen for this trip! Anxiously looking forward to Round 3 this summer!

Wonderful time near The Frio!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend a few summer days& nights with family! From birdwatching at the kitchen window while making breakfast, to swinging on the wrought iron swing by the outdoor fireplace, to the fire pit out back, it had everything for comfort in the spacious cabin. Plenty of comfy chairs & sofas to lounge on & everything provided to cook with - just bring your food & spices. The view from the back deck was gorgeous & the sunsets were so beautiful! My daughter, son & fiancée, & myself enjoyed barbecueing each evening after floating The Frio, & then relaxing in the loft upstairs watching movies we brought with us. Everything was so homey & comfy & we can't wait to come again!

We fell in love!

  • 5 of 5

This place is such a gem! We forgot about all of our worries while we were here for Labor Day weekend 2015. We went to Garner State Park, which is absolutely beautiful, we ate s'mores around the fire ring, we played board games inside, and played our version of "The Amazing Race" outside. I saw more shooting stars while I was there than I have in my entire life! I was a little skeptical about the outdoor shower, but DO EEET! There was just something so serene about being able to see the sky and the nature around you while washing up. Given the choice between a more luxurious cabin and the Four Frio Sisters Cabin, we'd choose the latter every. single. time. We cannot wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We also love the outdoor shower (and it does run hot and cold water!) and we spend a lot of time counting the shooting stars also. We would love for you to return to visit, all seasons have something special to offer in the Frio Canyon!

4 night stay in Hill Country

  • 4 of 5

The location is great. The cabin has plenty of room. The fire pit is awesome. The burn ban is off and there are no trees close by so the fire can be made nice and big. The heat in the cabin didn't distribute evenly. The kids were warm upstairs but the downstairs was quite chilly. Be prepared to bring any food items you need. There are no condiments at all, including oil or salt and pepper. There is no cell service (Verizon) which was more than OK with us. The cabin is super close to Garner SP and less than 30 minutes from Lost Maples SP. Billy Bobs liquor store in Leakey has a descent beer selection. Overall we had a great time.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Four Frio Sisters. We agree that the firepit is an awesome place to spend the evening with smores, stargazing and conversation. You are correct, we do not provide food items in the kitchen, that is up to the guests to bring. There is cell phone service at the cabin for AT&T and Tmobile users, though we also like to get away from our phones! We hope you return to visit - every season is enjoyable in the Texas Hill country!
