About the property

Beautiful private location, not overlooked, abundent wildlife- feed the deer!

Dream Away Cabin is a new, luxurious cedar log cabin located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Situated on a three acre private estate, just a few minutes walk to beautiful Canyon Lake, the cabin is well positioned to access all the lake amenities, the Guadalupe river, the famous Texas wine country, live music in Gruene, or alternatively just kick back on the huge front porch or in the double hammock under shady trees and enjoy the tranquility and observe the extensive native wildlife. This is an ideal vacation getaway for families or for that romantic retreat anytime of the year. Complete with Jacuzzi tub, native stone fireplace and outdoor fire pit, Dream Away Cabin is guaranteed to create life long memories …

The cabin is made to the highest standards with real exposed cedar beams throughout. The large wood-burning fireplace is perfect for those chilly Fall/Winter nights. It is constructed from local limestone and is a signature feature of the cabin. An antique chest in the living area holds a large selection of board games and toys for the kids. The cabin is furnished with high-end log furniture including a cedar log dining set in the large private screened-in rear porch - the perfect place for al-fresco dining. The master bedroom has a custom queen log bed with an en-suite bathroom and the second bedroom has a log bunk bed with a full over a queen in a very spacious configuration. Since the property is located in the up and coming Hill Country wine-growing region, one part of the cabin has been accented with elegant winery accessories and information is provided on some of the best winery tours in the area. We do however recognize the need for some twenty first century comforts so we offer free high-speed wi-fi for all guests. The property also provides ample parking space if you are considering bringing your own boat.

Dream Away Cabin is in a secluded part of Canyon Lake in a location that offers complete privacy - the cabin is not overlooked on any side. During inclement weather, Olianna Bumbling Brook (a small wet-weather creek!) navigates a path through the live oaks on the west side of the property. This is a great place to explore for wildlife and also hunt for fossils. Throughout the year there are many deer that roam through the property and we offer all guests a bag of deer corn to feed them from the comfort of the front or rear porch. On occasion it is not uncommon to see a dozen or so deer wandering freely by the cabin. There are also foxes, badgers and a multitude of different birds that share this piece of land with us. During those beautiful warm Texas nights, grill outside with the BBQ we provide, then sit out on the front porch in one of the rocking chairs and watch shooting stars or toast marshmallows by the outdoor fire-pit and watch satellites pass across the big Texas sky. The secluded location is perfect for star-gazers so don't forget your telescope! Alternatively, grab the acoustic guitar that we provide our guests and serenade your friends until the wee hours.

Whatever your interests are Dream Away Cabin is guaranteed to create life long memories …

About Stella

Dream Away Cabin is a private home away from home. We love making memories here with our family and friends. We hope that lasting memories can be made here for you and your loved ones, as well...

Stella purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Stella chose Canyon Lake

We built this custom log cabin for our family to explore this beautiful piece of the Texas Hill Country. We initially decided on this piece of land due to the quiet location and proximity to the lake. The abundant wildlife reminds us that we share this piece of earth with others that love to call this home.

What makes this cabin unique

Magical moments at the cabin:

Enjoying that first mug of fresh coffee sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch feeding the deer.

Reading a great book in the hammock under the shady trees.

Listening to the rain on the tin roof.

Firing up the BBQ any time of the year and watching the sun set over the trees.

Listening to the crackle of oak logs in the huge fireplace in the living room.

Toasting marshmallows in the outdoor stone fire-pit and counting shooting stars overhead.

Exploring Olianna Bumbling Brook after heavy rain.

Enjoying the quiet, still nights lying in the luxurious queen bed.

Watching the celestial spectacle each night - the Texas nights are an astronomers' paradise.

Spotting foxes, badgers and eagles on the property at any time during the year.

Playing board games on the rear screened in porch each night.

Taking the 10 minute stroll to the lake each evening to watch the sunset.

Kicking back in the hammock enjoying a glass of wine from one of the many local vinyards.

Relaxing in the jacuzzi tub after a long day hiking around the area.

... So many more wonderful moments ...

Guestbook comments from the owner

10 out of 10 absolutely amazing. This is exactly what I was hoping for and I got that and more! The pictures on the site are great but hardly do it justice. The aroma, the solitude, the beauty is unmatched - If you are looking for a True log cabin, look no further!!

Lake and trails just a short walk away. We especially enjoyed the Deer that walked right up to the porch - and getting to feed them! In short this is a place where you can get away from the hectic life, enjoy the scenery, and make some great memories! We will be returning, and only wish it was ours to keep!

It was exactly what we were looking for, a quiet get away from the city.

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was so cute, peaceful and very well maintained. My 2yr old and 4yr old loved to feed the deer multiple times a day. It was close enough to the lake for us to enjoy the sunset views at overlook park and to spend time on the lake.

Lovely cabin in the hill country

  • 5 of 5

This Dream Away Cabin is truly amazing! Super clean, very well built and so much attention has been paid to all the details, it is obvious that the owners really care about the cabin and have custom built most if not all of it. Easy access to outdoor activities. Our little one was so excited to see the deers in the yard in the morning! Totally recommend it! Will come back here again!
