About the Property

Perfect For Family & Friends To Spend Time Together

Located in a remote area of Real County (45 miles west of Garner State Park & ConCan) in Nueces Canyon. Surrounded by hills, the cabin is on Bullhead Creek, a tributary of the Nueces River.

Two houses available on this gorgeous 21 acres of amazing River fun. See Listing #887787 for additional large 4 bedroom.

If you choose to stay with us, I will send a secure electronic invoice to your email address for 1/2 of the balance due to hold the reservations. The remainder is due three days prior to arrival, you will receive a second invoice for this payment.

A true escape in the beautiful Texas Hill Country to enjoy peace, quiet and solitude in nature. Explore, fish, swim or just relax along the 1,155 feet of the Spring Fed Creek! You are likely to see Blue & Yellow Catfish, Carp, Blue Gill, Bass, Alligator Gar & Turtles!

Boasting a huge variety of birds, this is truly a birdwatchers paradise. You are also sure to see plenty of other wildlife including Whitetail & Axis deer, turkey and much more! Nearby exotic game ranches make your drive feel like a safari with Camel, Giraffe & Gazelle to name only a few, so keep your cameras handy!

Many of the state highways are widely known to bicyclists, motorcyclists, joggers, car clubs, and all who enjoy a breathtaking drive through hills and along the rivers. Famous Texas Highways nearby include: Ranch Road 2631 (on location); Hwy 335; (3.5 miles); Hwy 337 (15 miles); Hwy 41 (22 miles) and Hwy 336 (43 miles). Enough road for even the avid rider! Highways 335, 336, & 337 are often called the “Three Twisted Sisters” and are must rides for most enthusiasts.

For you who still have some energy left, hiking is amazing on the 20+ acres of White Ranch. The hills are fertile ground for many types of cactus blooming in the early and late Spring. As you hike along the flowing river!

There are several small restaurants, groceries, bars, unique shopping and even a chocolate factory in the nearby small towns just a 15 mile drive through beautiful exotic game ranches.
