Barksdale Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We spent three amazing days and nights at this property. The drive alone was worth it through some of hill country's most amazing roads and views. The property sits next to a wonderful, fun spot on the river where you can spend your days swimming, relaxing, fishing, or swinging from one of the two rope swings. The water is cool and clear. We grilled on the grill every day and loved just sitting outside.

We spent our nights outside, in awe of the many stars visible. We even watched the moon rise above the mountains every night listening to all the awesome sounds of nature.

The cabin itself is basic, but it gives you all you need. The kitchen is stocked with utensils, plates, cups, etc. There were ten of us on this trip and we fit comfortably in the cabin.

We did leave the cabin to go float the Frio. It is about a 45 min amazing drive from the property. It is fairly rual there. The closest major grocery store is 44 miles away so plan your trip accordingly. Granted, there is a dollar general in Barksdale (about seven miles) to get essentials you may have forgotten at the grocery store. It's not close or convinient to civilization, but it's a perfect get away.

All in all, we had a wonderful time and Teddy was a fabulous host. We would recommend this to anyone.

Wonderful Family Get-away location

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time on our weekend. The house was well stocked and maintained, as was the yard and river front. We spent much of our time outside in the shade and relaxing at the river. In the evening we enjoyed s'mores in our campfire and the beautiful night sky.

I highly recommend this retreat home for anyone wanting to get away from it all. We had a great nights sleep on the comfortable beds and did not want for a thing in the kitchen. The washer and dryer are a great asset as well. We did have access to wifi and tv, but enjoyed the great outdoors and fresh air.

We had great customer service and owner was only a phone call away.

This is my second time at this retreat and would love to return for a third time.

Great property! Secluded, spacious ...awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My group had a GREAT time at the White Ranch River Retreat! Everything was fantastic. The home was very clean, and stocked with everything that we needed. We LOVED being able to walk down to the water, to swim and fish; the water was very clear and clean. The owner was nice enough to allow us to bring our dogs; our dogs loved being able to run around the very spacious property. The provided grill was great for grilling up plenty of food, and stargazing at night while sitting around in the firepit was a delight. This is a special place, that has something to do for the entire family; we absolutely loved it. Thank you Teddy!
