Very well kept, clean and had everything any one would need on sight, for a great trip.

  • 4 of 5

One of our best trips with family and grandkids. Great location to the areas attractions. Had fun on the river , with floats and Kayaks. Everyone enjoyed the horses and the well manicured bottom land tree covered property, around the grill area and down to the river' The owners were great and communicated with us several times during our stay. Linda helped give us a heads up one evening, prior to some severe weather moving in the local area. It helped us plan before it got dark. Thanks. Hope to stay at the cabin again some day. C.C./W

Perfect couple's getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was perfect! We loved the seclusion and the location. The river, the fire pit area and the whole cabin were exactly what we were looking for. Linda was a wonderful hostess. We are already talking about going back!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, 2 dogs, & I just stayed here last weekend and we absolutely loved it! It is so peaceful and Linda is so welcoming. My daughter had a great time feeding the horses and we enjoyed relaxing by the fire pit at night. The house is so clean, adorably decorated, and had everything we needed. Make sure you take the 20 minute to Lockhart & try Black's BBQ. Delicious! And San Marcos is a 15 minute drive if you want to grocery shop or try some great restaurants. We will definitely be back! Thanks again Linda for some great memories my family & I have made at your property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out just one of the great BBQ places in Lockhart. Lockhart is known as the BBQ capital of Texas. It deserves that reputation. The best Bar B Que and lots of Antique shops and great history, with one of the most beautiful squares in Texas. Lockhart is just 10 minutes from my place on the 130 tollway or 20 minutes on the backroads. Location, location, location, my place is in the center of all things Central Texas. Also thank you for sharing the beauty and cleaness of my cabin. I take great pride in making it the perfect get away. The cabin is great but the land surrounding it is fantastic. Once Again, thank you for the great review. Hope to see you soon!

The property was a beautiful and peaceful retreat on our favorite River.

  • 5 of 5

We hope to return to the cute cabin which provided rest and relaxation for our family. There had been some spring flooding the week prior to our stay. Linda was very accommodating and helpful with her insights about the river making sure that our safety was the first item of business. We will be return patrons if she will continue to have us! Thanks!

It's a beautiful place. We didn't want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice. We had all we needed. The yard and trees are beautiful. It's a very short walk to the river. The water is very pretty and we had a good time fishing. Linda was great also.

Looking for a romantic get away? Our cabin is a quiet relaxing vacation home that is centrally located between two metropolis areas, San Antonio and Austin. However, if you like the small town atmosphere, downtown areas in New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Lockhart offer antique shopping, outlet shopping, and. locally established restaurants. Our place offers small town atmosphere as its in Historical Staples,Texas population, 210. It's within walking distance of the historical park. But only 10 minutes from the city life of San Marcos and Lockhart.
