Very beautiful property, with great views and wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very, relaxing time at this property. The drive to the property is full of wildlife and has amazing views. The house is rustic and beautiful. You must get in the hot tub at night and watch the sun go down and see the night sky stars. Truly beautiful. Thanks Ashley for a great stay!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cabin in a secluded ranch. We saw cows, deer, horses, wild turkeys, rabbits, roadrunners, and many hawks. Stars were beautiful. But we also found several scorpions and wasps in cabin. Not sure if this is common in the area but we were concerned because we had small children. Upstairs rails also not safe for kids. Overall it was a fun stay.

Wonderful Secluded Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic time at Fort Martin. The house was very clean and had all the amenities you need. The place is very secluded and takes a little while to get to from town, but this is exactly what we were looking for from the rental. Tons of wildlife to see. Very nice to build a camp fire each night and see all the stars. Ashley was easy to work with and we had no issues with the rental. We would stay at the property again. Thanks Ashley.

Wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the fort. Had a great time just relaxing and enjoyed the stars at night. Close to Fredericksburg and Enchanted rock for close trips and the drive in and out is breathtaking with plenty of wildlife.

Fantastic time in the hill country

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose to spend our 45th anniversary at the Martin Fort and it was a wonderful experience. The facility is fascinating, unique, beautiful, comfortable and well outfitted. The setting is beautiful and the area is equally inspiring.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.
