About the Property

2 bedroom/2 bath with private Frio River access and beautiful hill country views

Located on the peaceful banks of the Frio River with private river access, this spacious cabin sleeps 6 comfortably, and includes all the amenities you'll need for a relaxing getaway.

Come and unwind in the quiet canyon under the Milky Way like you've never seen, and roast marshmallows on the fire pit. If you're looking for more action, head down to Garner State Park for the nightly dance under the stars during the summer.

Great for birders in the spring, those seeking summer fun in the river, leaf watchers in the fall, and snow birds in the winter.

A beautiful destination anytime of year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My family and I fell in love with this area when we used to come and stay in rental cabins on long weekends along the Frio River. We loved it so much in 2006 we moved to Leakey, from Houston, to escape the rat race and raise our kids somewhere clean and quiet. We love living in the hill country, and Leakey has definitely lived up to our expectations. We are excited we can share the experience with other people looking to rent a quaint cabin on the Frio.

Why the Owner Chose Leakey, TX, USA:
Our cabin is cozy, but far from rustic. You'll find everything you need to enjoy a weekend or week on the Frio. While it might be a little scary to unplug completely, we think you'll come to appreciate that your cell phone doesn't get reception and there is no WIFI.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The view from the front porch is our favorite. It's a nice place to sit with a steamy cup of coffee early in the morning and watch the deer. It's also a great place to enjoy a beer or glass or wine in the evening, as the deer are passing by again.
