The cabin has an open kitchen/living room floor plan(with a queen-sized sofabed) and a pool table. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a washer/dryer.

Enjoy pitching horse shoes while cooking on the smoker/grill.
Whether relaxing on the deck or picnicking riverside, the cabin is all about the river.

About Ann Mary Carney
We are a family of four that have been enjoying this cabin as a retreat for 10 years. My family is originally from San Marcos. The Rio Vista park across the river was originally owned by my great grandfather, A. B. Rogers as Rogers Resort. There were vacation cabins along the banks of the river as well as water rides. After one of the major floods took the cabins away, he donated the property to the city of San Marcos. He also owned the land that was developed into Aquarena Springs by his son, my grandfather Paul Rogers.
Ann Mary Carney purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Ann Mary Carney chose Rio Vista
As a child growing up enjoying the San Marcos River while playing at Aquarena Springs, I experienced a peaceful and magical quality that I wanted to share with my family and friends. The property the cabin sits on is the last riverfront property in the family. We bought the cabin and had it moved to the property.
What makes this Cabin unique
There is nothing like the sounds of the happy river floaters one hears from the cabin's deck. We cut out the french doors from what used to be a wall because of the view of the river on the other side. Playing pool and watching the river float by is the best thing ever!

Property is great, private, comfortable, beautiful, and fun.
We loved our stay. Our hosts were gracious and attentive and interesting folks. The cabin was charming and comfortable. Morning prayer on the river with herons and turtles. We loved getting to know the San Marcos area and some of it’s history. The cabin and the property have their own history. In every way this was an outstanding place to stay.
We had an amazing time! The house is in the perfect spot on the San Marcos River, you couldn't ask for a better spot in town, but doesn't feel like it, it felt really private. The cabin had everything you could possibly need. We played horse shoes, pool, sat around the fire pit, and enjoyed the back deck at night with the lights strung through the trees, I will definitely be back to this place! I didn't want to leave lol... we had a GREAT TIME! Oh!!!! If you have never been to the San Marcos River before the water is very clear its gorgeous!
Great Getaway at a Great Spot
Had a great time here! Everything worked perfectly, was a good location in terms of river position, and had amenities to assist us. It was well kept up, and accurate to the description.
The only problem we had was mostly on us. The first person to arrive had trouble locating it, but it was more his lack of attention than anything.
Overall great place. Would go back to it.
In a word this property is WONDERFUL! The beds are extremely comfortable , the kitchen is very well stocked with things you may have forgotten to pack. The river is just at the bottom of the hill and so much fun. The kids loved picking blue bonnets and making smores at the campfire. Will definitely be back ! Thanks so much !
This cabin was absolutely perfect for our girls weekend out. The inside is cozy and very well equipped. The backyard is lovely and private.
We are planning on coming back and staying longer. The owner, Ann Mary, is great and easy to communicate with.
