Nice cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

It was a clean, cozy cabin that had all you needed packed in a comfortable little package. Very friendly goats being led by a sheep that would rub his head against you like a dog. Fire pit was nice on the cool evening. Small window unit was plenty to keep the cabin comfortable. The nice size porch was great for drinking coffee in the morning. The cabin was in a great location, with in 30 minutes of Colorado Bend State Park and within an hour from Inks lake and Long Horn Caverns. Google maps did bring me straight to the cabin.

Great Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin and the location. It was perfect for our trip to Colorado Bend State Park. So fun to be met by the sheep and goats when we came back in. Everything was in good order, and even though we didn't get to meet Beth till the last day, we were in contact with her from the time we arrived. She was a great hostess, offering tips and suggestions when asked. We will recommend to friends and family!

Wonderful place to visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the ranch! The cabin was definitely worth 5 stars! It was a very cute little cabin that has everything you need for a good stay! Everything was extremely clean and taken care of. The owners were also wonderful, very nice people who made sure we were taken care of and had a good time. The property is beautiful with so much to do! We had a blast fishing up and down the creek, and then hopping in the pool to cool off! My son also loved the morning visits by the horses and goats. A great place for families or couples to get away for a little. We will most definitely be back!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was exactly what we needed. Living in Austin, we needed a weekend getaway to escape the city. This cabin was exactly that. We were greeted by Beth as soon as we arrived and she gave us a tour of their ranch. All the animals would greet us on the porch in the mornings, partly looking for a breakfast snack. I can't stress that this place is perfect to relax and enjoy the Texas country side. We will be coming back on a regular basis!

Wonderful, even better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at a ranch, so we weren't sure what to expect. We had such a great time. The kids loved the horses and goats - they really add so much character to the property. The grounds are beautiful and really well maintained. The stock tank pool was perfect to cool off on hot summer evenings. The owners are extremely nice and provide tons of great information. I've stayed at a few 4 and 5 star resorts this summer for work and this place blew those away. Awesome great time, highly recommend.

Nature Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a splendid little cabin. My children, 5 and 16 months, were enchanted by the goats. So much to see from wildlife to nature and an amazing tour and history of the property from Beth. We enjoyed 2 days of hiking at the Colorado Bend Park and it was nice to have so much to see around the cabin for the other 2 days of arrival and departure. It was such a pleasant spot we've booked a week for next year the same day we left.
