About Diana Pfieffer/Tracy McKinzey
We are sisters Diana & Lani. Diana and her family live in Utopia and manage the property. Their home is walking distance from the Cowboy House, so they like to greet the guests at least once during their stay here. Tracy McKinzey is our property manager and can answer most questions.
Diana Pfieffer/Tracy McKinzey purchased this House in 2012
Why Diana Pfieffer/Tracy McKinzey chose Utopia
We knew the previous owner of this property and saw how beautifully he kept the grounds. When he passed away unexpectedly, the property was left untended for over a year. We were so saddened to see it unused. When it went up for auction, we threw our hat in the ring. We are grateful for the opportunity of sharing beautiful Utopia with new friends from afar.
What makes this House unique
Cowboy House is so accessible to the important things in Utopia--the rodeo arena, the dam & swimming hole, the river itself and even the little shops in quaint downtown. We are located just on the edge of town and directly down the road from Garner State Park in one direction and lovely Lost Maple State Park in the other direction.

Nice Getaway from West Texas
My family and I enjoyed our stay here. Great location and beautiful views! Excellent little getaway from the everyday craziness.
Beautiful and comfortable.
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
We had a great stay
Had a great getaway weekend at this wonderful property. We wanted to visit Garner State Park and also view stars at night. This was a perfect place for that. At night the sky was so full of stars that we couldn’t remember when we saw so many stars before.
The outside open area and that swing - kids loved it. We had hard time getting kids inside the house. They wanted to swing, run all the time outside. When inside the house they would play hide and seek and all other stuff.
Full marks to the owner for effective communication and making sure that we have a good stay. Next time we are gonna stay there for more than 2 nights for sure.
I'm so glad you had such a great getaway at the Cowboy House! Your group was such a pleasure to host. You are wlecome back anytime you want to take a short getaway or a vacation! Hope to see you in the future.
First time trip to Frio!
The house was very comfortable and enough room for all of us to sleep and hangout! We enjoyed the patio and picnic table. Tracy was so very helpful when we had a little one run a high fever and sent us to a place In Utopia that we would not have found otherwise. We had a wonderful time!
Lisa I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cowboy House! It was really great to meet you and your family. I hope to see you again in the future.
