Amazing family country get away!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what my family was looking for. There was plenty of space for the 5 kids and 4 adults going. GPS took us straight to the entrance. Shiner TX is about 45 min away and we took a day trip to the Shiner Brewery and picnic there. The next day we spent fishing at the pond almost all day. The kids LOVED all the fish they were catching, and We caught two nice size bass. We went hiking and bird watching, and in the evening saw a few armadillos. The fire pit was perfect for s’mores and ghost stories! The showers had great water pressure, and enough hot water for all of us. Cell phone coverage was adequate, but fine for talking. But hey you are in the country, so put the phones down and enjoy the peace of nature. The owner was very cheerful and seemed very happy that our kids were having such fun fishing at the pond. We will absolutely be returning again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you and your family had such a great experience! When we decided to share our place in the country, we were hoping for families like yours that would fully enjoy the peace and quiet of getting away from it all! But I have to tell you, the part with the kids puts a smile on my face! I've been there and done that! Next time ask me about the ghost story of "Screaming Women Creek", it is one I made up and told to my kids. We look forward to your return and hope you like the improvements while you were away! Thanking you for taking the time to write a review. Dennis

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Everything was as advertised. A bit further away from our wedding venue but we had everything we needed.

Thank you Dennis

Amazing Fishing and friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a weekend fishing trip guaranteed to catch fish, you have found it!! We absolutely loved this cabin. Secluded, private, clean, comfortable and a lot of fish to catch! Our 4 and 5 year old caught and reeled in their very first fish here. We've been on fishing trips with them before, but none like this! The cabin is close to pond so when it became hot and they needed to go back it was a short walk. Lights provided all around property in case you are fishing until sun goes down. Just make sure you bring a flash light with you there's a short walk without light. We will definitely be back. Our whole family enjoyed it and the owners are super friendly! Very easy to get a hold of and even checked in through text on how stay was going! Loved that! Thank you Dennis and Thomas for being outstanding host and sharing this little piece of heaven with the rest of us!

If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all this is the place. Private secluded. Just what i was looking for. Fishing was great. Caught five bass ranging from 2-8 pounds. And had 2 that snapped my line. Huge bass In these ponds. Also caught a few good size crappie. This is my dream retirement property. Cant wait to come back.

A relaxing and tranquil oasis

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with some very good friends and we enjoyed it very much! A simple but well appointed cabin. The pond and surrounding land was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting and talking in the screened in porch. We also enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the birds and wildlife. I recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, laid back vacation. Nearby, Smithville has some very charming bars and restaurants. We will definitely be booking this place again!
