Overview

About the property

Cabin nestled in middle of a beautiful cattle ranch

Kat's Kabin, located at 1555 Lemond Rd, Utopia, TX, is the 2nd cabin available on Four Sisters Ranch. It is .3 miles from Four Sisters Ranch Cabin which is also listed. Kat's is a beautiful, secluded ranch cabin on 1000 private acres of the Four Sisters Ranch. Located in the most scenic part of the Texas Hill Country, right between Lost Maples and Garner State Park.

This fully furnished cabin features one bedroom with two queen beds (sleeps 4), one bathroom and a fully furnished kitchen. We have a Hot Tub, two porches, shaded BBQ area, patio, wildlife feeders and a fire pit.

You can enjoy the sounds of nature, wildlife and a beautiful night sky. You will see a variety of wildlife from the porch including deer, turkey, wild hogs and hummingbirds.

Located 90 mi NW of San Antonio and 7 mi from Utopia. The cabin is 10 miles from Vanderpool, TX home to Lost Maples State Park, Polvadeau Vineyards and the Lonestar Motorcycle Museum. Garner State Park, the Frio River and Concan are about 30 minutes away. Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Medina, Concan, Boerne, Bandera and Comfort are all close by and great for shopping. Night life is available in Bandera.

Our curvy, scenic roads boast fantastic hill country views. Local activities: Golf in Utopia (the setting for the movie 7 Days in Utopia). Go swimming at Utopia Park on the Sabinal River, Float the Frio River. Hike at Garner Park. Go birding at Lost Maple Park. Gaze at the stars. Photograph the picturesque hill country views. BBQ on the patio. Go wine tasting at Polvadeau Vineyards. The Texas hill country is a wonderful year around birding & wildlife viewing destination! We are in one of the best areas of Texas to see the Golden Cheeked Warbler, Black Capped Vireo, Vermilion Flycatcher and more!

Dine at The Laurel Tree in Utopia (requires a reservation) and Mac & Ernies in Tarpley for a fantastic dining experience! Utopia has two cafes and sometimes great BBQ on Saturdays.

We will give you a ranch tour in our jeep or leave you in complete privacy. Your choice. You will be surrounded by nature in a gorgeous hill country setting. You will see a brilliant starry sky and fire flies in the summer months.

The nearest airport is in San Antonio (~1.5 hr drive). Austin is an ~ 3 hour drive.

Other Things to Note One night bookings are only allowed during week days not week-ends. For major holidays, a three night minimum is required. Utopia is a very small community with a general store, bank, gas station, cafe and a few shops. Limited groceries are available at the general store. The nearest large grocery store and hospital is 45 miles ( Hondo, Kerrville or Uvalde). Cell phone service is very limited, only AT&T works and it is spotty.

Beer and wine can be purchased at the convenience store north of Vanderpool near Lost Maples State Park not in Utopia.

GPS is not always accurate. Take Hwy 187 north from Utopia. In 3 miles go left on West Sabinal Rd. Continue until you get to Lemond Rd. Take a left on Lemond and continue until you get to 1555. Look for the Four Sisters Ranch signs at the turns.

We have a 2nd cabin about .3 miles away. Four Sisters Ranch Cabin is also listed if you want to book both cabins for a family get away.

We will rent for one night during the week. Send me a message if interested.

Why Kathleen Lewis chose Utopia

We were looking for something to do during our retirement. Having had such wonderful people come out to enjoy our first cabin, Four Sisters Ranch Cabin, we decided to build a second one on our plot of land.

What makes this cabin unique

What's unique? Seclusion, privacy and no light pollution. This is a place to get away from the hectic life in the city to immerse yourself in nature while soaking in the hot tub! You will leave refreshed and renewed!

Pure Serenity and an absolutely breathtaking experience!

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled all over the US and stayed in 4&5 star hotels but Kat’s Kabin by far beats ALL! Kat’s personal touch and detail touches your heart and soul! We were greeted with wildlife many times per day. I have never been able to relax in a place like I was able to here. I will share this experience with everyone I can and will be back regularly.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just like in the photos on the site. Even better in person! My family enjoyed spending time at the cabin. The cabin is so well laid out that we never felt cramped. Just the right amount of space to be close but not on top of each other. It was just amazing to sit on the back porch and watch all the wildlife around us. So many beautiful birds flying all around. My daughter loved seeing the deer, wild turkeys, and the horse walking around. There is the most wonderful view from the front porch to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee, or just rock away looking at the stars. The home had everything you would need or forget to bring with you lol.

Definitely take heed about cell service in the area. Once we got out of Kerrville there was no cell phone service for us (we have Verizon). Very strange and scary lol, but that's why you come out to get unplugged from all that stuff. The Lost Maples Cafe in town has wifi so go grab a bite of some good cooking and check all your online accounts there. The owners are very nice and friendly and let us make a call from there phone. You are out all alone but not at the same time. The owners live close enough that if you worry about something happening you aren't completely alone in the middle of nowhere. They had a fresh blueberry loaf, honey, and wine waiting for us as a welcome gift in the cabin when we arrived.

We are already planning our next trip to go back to the cabin.

Great Cabin
