Experience the tranquility of nature and privacy at our cozy cabin on the ranch.  Secluded and close to the crystal-clear Frio River, this magical retreat is one of the most sought-after rentals in the hill country.  With convenient access to either of our two river spots, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds.

Shallow Rocky Bank: This spot is perfect for relaxing by the cold Frio River. Imagine sitting in chairs, under canopies, listening to music, and enjoying the tranquil surroundings. It’s also great for families with little ones.  This river frontage is located at the Original 6 cabins property.

Deep Swimming Hole: If you’re up for more adventure, head to the deep swimming hole. The water levels range from 3 to 12 feet, making it ideal for tubing, kayaking, or simply floating and chilling.   This river frontage is located at the River Terrace cabins property.

Sheltered beneath the canopy of century-old oaks, this rustic retreat invites you to unwind and immerse yourself in nature. Picture yourself grilling by the back porch, gathering around a crackling campfire, or simply basking in the tranquility. When winter arrives, cozy up to the electric fireplace after a leisurely stroll through the property. The spacious front porch beckons for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine by the fireside.

But it’s not just the earthly delights that captivate visitors. Astronomy enthusiasts flock from all corners of the U.S. to gaze at the ranch’s pristine night sky. With minimal light pollution, the celestial canvas comes alive with a breathtaking display of stars—the kind you won’t find anywhere else.

Birdwatching here is a treat for the senses. Rare breeds like the golden-cheeked warbler and the black-capped vireo draw avid bird lovers year after year. And don’t overlook the lively hummingbirds that flit about during spring and summer!

For a more active adventure, explore the wildlife trails where deer, turkey, and other fascinating creatures abound. Or venture to the open area and witness the mesmerizing dance of fireflies after dark. Plus, being just two miles from Garner State Park, this cabin offers a unique opportunity to truly connect with the natural world.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights over the Easter holiday. We absolutely LOVED it!! The staff is very friendly and answered any questions we had. The cabin we stayed in was very clean, had a refrigerator, oven/stove, and a nice area outside for a bonfire. The scenery is just gorgeous. We will definitely be coming back here.

Awesome site to spend the weekend end. Cell signal isn’t great but that’s a plus. The river is just steps away

This place might be one of our favorite vacations with the kids.  We stayed at Cabin 10. We most enjoyed the fireflies that come out every evening and the hummingbirds that swarm the feeders all day. The kids ran back and forth from the cabin to the river all day. It was perfect for our family, but the slope down to the river might be tough for an elderly person to navigate.

Peace, quiet and the crystal-clear Frio River make this a magical place and one of our most popular locations. Century old oaks provide a shady area to barbecue, enjoy a campfire or just relax on the spacious front porch. Take a walk on our nature trails where abundant wildlife can be seen or stroll down to the river and watch the fireflies come out at night. Hundreds of deer, turkey and many other species of wildlife can be seen throughout the day from the front porch.
