We have rented many times and this was by far the most perfectly appointed rental we have stayed in. The cottage is brand new and very tastefully decorated. Thank you Sue and Terry, great job!

Beautiful home tucked away

  • 5 of 5

Sue was a wonderful host. She was very communicative and responsive when needed and made sure that my friends and I had everything we needed for a great girls' weekend away. The kitchen is fully stocked, the rooms are cozy and the porch in the morning is the perfect spot for coffee to start the day.

Located on the same 6 acre property as it's sister cottage called Onion Creek Cottage which sleeps 6. Bear Creek Cottage is located about a half a mile from 2 wedding venues, The Humming Bird House and The Wild Onion Ranch. It is a couple of miles from The Vineyard at Chappel Lodge. We are located about an hour from San Antonio and 15 minutes from Austin. The surrounding hill country towns are Buda, Kyle, Wimberly, Dripping Springs and Driftwood. There are many antique shops, breweries and BBQ, such as the world famous Salt Lick, to visit nearby. In fact, there is a cider brewery practically next door called Texas Keeper Craft Cider where you can visit their tap room. The property is a 15 minute drive from the COTA track!
