About the property

Spectacular Hill Country Home With An Amazing Creek - Swim,canoe, fish, stargaze

Paradise in the Texas Hill Country. Ranch style home on 600 feet of Flat Creek frontage in an exclusive, gated community. Minutes to Pedernales Falls State Park and so much to do. Or do nothing.

Constant clear water is the bonus of this property. Few ever will have an opportunity to experience this pristine water. The dam guarantees constant level.

The 1 bedroom contemporary rustic home features expansive decks, breathtaking views, a stone palapa and hiking trails. It is pure bliss for you and your pet! The 1 bedroom has a king bed and 2 Serta premium queen sleeper sofas in the large living room. Upscale rustic furnishings and artwork make this home as inspiring as the outdoor experience that comes with this rental. Enjoy the best star gazing from unlimited vantage points, fishing in Flat Creek, swim or kayak, take our canoe for a spin, whatever your heart desires. We welcome your well behaved pet indoors!

The creek offers swimming, fishing (poles provided), and canoeing (provided), laying on rafts or hiking. You may or may not encounter anyone else your entire stay. Minutes from countless attractions this property affords an exceptional experience to rest your weary feet at the end of your day.

You will love the modern kitchen, it has everything for your cooking pleasure (spices, etc) and the dining table has a beautiful view.

The entire property, including expansive garden, home and guest cabin is serviced via rain water collection. Because of our limited rain, we ask each guest be conservative.

Regardless of the weather, this property offers year round luxury and a much needed respite in a busy world. Check our reviews...it's not just us saying this!

About Harriet and Steve Greenlee

We have lived in the hill country since 1984, both Midwest transplants and tired of the winters. I am a nature enthusiast, Animal rehabilitator, environmental whistle blower, to name a few. Together we've have taken an overgrazed cattle ranch and converted it to a wildlife sanctuary, Steve is the hardest working man in the world. Between our "Furniture in the Raw" stores and factory in Austin and San Antonio, we put a ton of miles on every day working actively in our businesses. Our kids are both in college so we continue to work and work hard! This property was bought in June 2016 and transformed to what it is today. We toast our friend, Clovis Tanner, for the opportunity to carry on his dream of this property, preserving and enhancing.

Why Harriet and Steve Greenlee chose Dripping Springs

We have loved this property and the previous owner, Clovis, for over 20 years. We always told Clovis when he was ready to sell, we'd love first right of refusal. He first approached us in spring of 2015 and as excited as I was, it was not in the budget. In March of 2016 things came together and we were able to take this pristine piece of property and bring it back to its beautiful stature. And now you have an opportunity to also experience it. Many of the items in the home are truly vintage and belonged to Clovis and will remain there to honor the beautiful spaces he created. Clovis passed about 2 months after we closed on the property. Toast our friend while there, he would have loved the opportunity to meet you! You'll enjoy flipping through a few of his things while there!

What makes this house unique

Countless views from this property will take your breath away! BBQ on the deck overlooking the creek. Stargaze in one of the best places on earth! This is total privacy and just upstream from Pedernales Falls State Park, 3 miles to the entrance or hike from the property to the park! Vineyards within 10 minutes, Texas Hills Olive Orchard is 7 minutes- or just do NOTHING and float or yoga on the decks. Bring your guitar, too. In the cold months enjoy the spectacular fireplace.

Peaceful and Secluded

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Fiddler's Creekside. The property is large enough that you don't see or hear other people, and the cabin is well maintained. A great place to stay if you want to get away and disconnect from city life. The owners were great and very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful hill country retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time back and it was just as enjoyable as the first. I'm almost afraid to keep writing good reviews because I know others will discover it! Hosts were more than accommodating.
