About the property

Perfect for memorable romantic get-aways, yet with all the comforts of home!

Wow! Our Serene Vista Cabin is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, only 37 miles from Fredericksburg, nearer to Johnson City, 290 Wine Tours, and Enchanted Rock! And we are within 5 miles of a secluded Bat Cave! Observe millions of free-tail bats emerge their cave at dusk each evening! The map to the cave is in our book in the cabin. I also have many brochures of all of the interesting things nearby that you are sure to find enjoyable. Why choose, Serene Vista Cabin? Because our place is like no other in this area. You will feel like you are back in time. Just beautiful panoramic views to enjoy right from the porch of the cabin! Yet, it's close enough for all of your day's activities. Visit the nearby places, but have just as much fun coming back to the cabin in the evenings. Because I know you will want to make it back for the beautiful sunsets or to take in watching the bats emerge from their cave.

Wait till you see how dark it gets at night. Sit out at the picnic table and watch the stars...You won't get any of this in the city.

Check in time is 2:00 P.M. (Sooner if no other guests were checking out on that day)

Check out time is 10:00 A.M. (Later if no other guests are checking in that day)

Must be 25 years old or older to rent.

$150.00 Refundable Security Deposit will be processed back to your card directly through VRBO with a satisfactory damage free checkout.

Our remote rustic cabin offers all of the comforts of home with the added delight of a pristine undeveloped grand view that is so peaceful and beautiful! Our cabin will become a favorite vacation destination for you. We've already had numerous re-books and have only begun this journey of renting our cabin since mid October of 2014! At last count there were over 100 consecutive 5.0 star ratings!

We take pride in this journey and I invite you to call should you have any questions regarding booking with us. Our Cabin is absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway or for a small family wanting to spend quality time together.

There is shopping in Fredericksburg...visiting the highway 290 wineries...etc. and so much in this area to enjoy!

And, although we are in a very quiet secluded area, we are still very convenient to visiting nearby Fredericksburg, Enchanted Rock, Willow City Loop, Johnson City, Marble Falls, Kingsland, Lake LBJ, Inks Lake, Pedernales Falls and Horseshoe Bay. All of these towns are within 12-37 miles.

And of course the Hwy 290 West Wine Trail' near Stonewall and Fredericksburg.

I can assure you that everything mentioned is close enough for your day's adventures.

Our Serene Vista Cabin is fully furnished and although rustic with smooth concrete floors, it is very cozy, clean and comfortable! The King Mattress has been very recently replaced with a Quality Posturepedic Mattress in March of 2017.

There is a full kitchen, which includes a microwave, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster, and traditional Coffee Maker, & Keurig Coffee Maker. We also provide an iron, large flat screen tv, (with directtv) blu ray dvd player, and have a mini split a/c & heat wall system for comfort. Plus a washer and dryer in outside laundry room.

It is furnished with a beautiful custom artisan iron (king size bed), handcrafted in Fredericksburg, Texas. There is a rustic sturdy log bunk bed set, (however, please no young children on the top bunk) with an additional roll-away twin bed, and comfy leather couch. All Bed Linens are included, we have at least 8 quality bed pillows, and numerious Bath Towels on hand. Should you need a nearby store to go to? There is "Bayside Market"

in nearby Horseshoe Bay.

Relax on the covered porch, fire up the BBQ Pit, and have a cookout and picnic in our picnic area. Or, just fire up the firepit and make some smores!

Now if you would like to book, please provide us with some general information in your initial booking request, such as couples retreat, family weekend adventure, etc and if children will be in included in your rental stay and how many. We do think the cabin is more suited to 2-4 and 5 would be the limit.

Why? Because we recently had a scout master trying to rent the cabin for a group camp out! I know that it would have been fun for them, but we must have a limit!

About Sandra Lamb

Our 'Serene Vista' Cabin is special to us as we lived in this small but comfy cabin while we were building our home. The setting is so serene...that it was obvious what to name it!

Why Sandra Lamb chose Round Mountain

This scenic location is different than anything around this area. Take the time to read the reviews of recent guests!

Just like us, all that have visited fell in love with the amazingly gorgeous views and the serene peacefulness. My very first thought and words when I first walked on this property was 'WOW!!!!'

What makes this cabin unique

Want to write a song, and need the perfect tranquil setting? This is the place! So, so quiet! Relax on the porch and just take in miles & miles of gorgeous views. You will not find any prettier sunsets than right here on the porch! Evenings are for the you stargazer enthusiasts! It gets very, very dark.

Sit outside and see who can count the most satellites!

A true hidden Gem in the Hill Country!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures DO NOT do this cabin justice! I can not tell you how beautiful this property and cabin are, you will just have to go experience it yourself. Stop looking for any other places in this area, nothing will beat this! It has breathtaking views and nature at its best! We were there celebrating our anniversary and it was the most relaxing time ever! Sitting out on the porch on the wooden swing overlooking the hill country, listening to the silence of not hearing traffic, cars or city noises, only hearing the sounds of nature was so wonderful! Sandra & Bill left a pair of binoculars ( one of those small awesome special touches), to look down at the country side. Looking up at the night sky and seeing thousands of stars dancing across the sky was just something to experience. The inside of this cabin was so well kept with no touches left out. It was so comfortable and cozy and much more than I expected. Bill & Sandra have out done themselves with this treasure. Thank you Bill & Sandra for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! We will definitely be back! Greg & Teresa M

Peaceful and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place. We picked it because of its central location to Pedernales Falls and Enchanted Rock. We were surprised to be able to fit in Lukenbach and Fredericksburg. After being active hiking all day coming back to the serenity of Serene Vista was perfect. So many fun activities with 30-45 minutes. Would definitely come back to this place!

When can I move in?

  • 5 of 5

My family loves the Hill Country, we pop down there as often as we can from the DFW area to enjoy the beauty of it and the small towns. This was the first trip we made that we stayed this far north. The only thing that sold us on it was the pictures of the hills from the porch. We took a chance and we are so glad we did! The cabin had everything we needed. The bed was soooo comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, the bathroom had everything we needed. I used the washer/dryer while we were there, which was very handy. The lights along the porch and through the trees were beautiful at night but could easily be turned off to give you a perfect view of the stars. We did some stargazing in the middle of the yard for quite a while. The kids loved the swings, spent quite a bit of time on them and running back and fort in the yard. The porch, which looks down over the pastures and out at the hill/mountain range is gorgeous. If I could buy the property from Bill and Sandra I would! We had the opportunity to see beautiful sunrises and sunsets, but also watch several storms roll in across those hills and pastures and what a sight! The animals we passed, driving through the other ranch properties were my kids favorites. They named the donkeys and would say hello to them every time we went by. We had deer in the yard in the mornings along with rabbits. We could hear the cows mooing down below. Bill checked on us once and was so interesting to talk to. He shared the history of the cabin, along with some of the properties that you can see from the cabin. We are big on renting places with seclusion, that is a pretty big rule of ours. So if you are like us, rest assured that even though Bill and Sandra live nearby, they live up the hill and you have privacy! You can see their house and another house up on the hill. But they were wonderful hosts and let us enjoy their property in peace. Luckily Bill, was nearby if we needed anything and offered to get us ice as I did not read the listing properly (make sure you do) and it specifically says bring ice because the ice maker does not work. Because of this rental (which we will be returning to) we will now focus on this area a little more in our travels. The directions to Fredricksburg that they provide definitely cuts down on time and Longhorn Cavern SP, Inks Lake SP and Krause Springs were all must sees. The bats were an added bonus. All in all, Serene Vista Cabin should be your next destination.

Peaceful, quiet, great views, perfect for rejuvenating the soul...

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the best equipped of any that we have stayed in. All we needed was the food for our meals. Nice beds, wonderful front porch with awesome view of the valley and mountains. I will keep this cabin on my list to visit again. This would be especially great when the fall colors are at their peak. Sky was full of stars. Can't see that in the city. Even got to see a fox cross through the yard. Hummingbirds were very active. Thanks for being wonderful hosts.
