Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

The intimate size of the space here makes the Crazy Horse Cabin a Bandera accommodation that's ideal for couples seeking that perfect hideaway. The elevated cabin overlooks a beautiful creek that's right behind it. The property is set in a beautiful rural setting, perfect for nature lovers-and as a bonus, the Hill Country State Natural Area is only a 15-minute drive away. You won't be too isolated, though, with Bandera's events and attractions just down the road.

The spacious deck wraps around most of the cabin, and you can admire the surroundings in the hot tub there-it's a great spot for stargazing! Take a swim in the creek, coast on the water with the provided floats, try your hand at some catch-and-release fishing, or scope out the birds and wildlife that visit the property. There's a charcoal grill for your use here, and hot tub and/or swimming towels and biker rags are also provided. Speaking of which, the surrounding roads are perfect for a scenic tour of the Hill Country! Pets are welcomed here, but please keep them leashed and don't leave them unattended at any time during your stay. Smoking is allowed, but outside only.

Rustic hardwood floors highlight the cabin's interior, and the space is outfitted with central air and heating for your comfort. There's a queen-sized bed, and a single roll-away can be made available upon request to sleep up to three people. The full bathroom has a shower and tub combo, and the kitchen is equipped with cooking appliances, fridge, cookware, cutlery and serving ware. Coffee and tea are complimentary, as are all bed and bath linens. Tech-wise, there's a TV with DVD player, radio with CD player.

This cozy cabin rental knocks it out of the park with amenities, views, and proximity to the best the Hill Country has to offer. Give yourself that well-deserved break! We'd be happy to get started-give Backroads Reservations a call!

Take a swim in the creek (over 500 feet of waterfront), coast on the water with the provided floats, try your hand at some catch-and-release fishing, or scope out the birds and wildlife that visit the property.

What guests are saying...

My husband and I had the most perfect get away, we even got to bring our fur baby (dog!). The cabin, land, hot tub, was even better than expected and fit us perfectly!! We spent a day hiking at the Hill country natural area, which was beautiful. And the next day downtown trying their recommended place “Dough Joe” so yummy!! Communication while renting was great! Our first dates unfortunately didn’t work out because I had covid 3 days before we were supposed to leave. Within 30 minutes we had new dates scheduled with no problems! I will be recommending this place to everyone!
This little cabin in the woods is just what my husband and I needed. It was clean and just so sweet. We will for sure come back to this little piece of heaven again. We enjoyed the hot tub every night to relax before bedtime. Love this cabin!!!
We had the most amazing weekend at crazy horse cabin! I think our dog Miles had the most fun of all ❤️ At one point he even had a little camp buddy in the owners chiwennie, Mocha. The creek was awesome mucky at the bottom but running nice and clear, bring water shoes. We can’t wait to go back to this little shangrila ❤️
This was just the off the grid retreat I needed. The hosts were great and the view was spectacular.
We had a perfect trip with our dogs. We swam, caught a huge catfish (and threw him back), saw a huge buck the second morning while sipping coffee in the hot tub on the back deck overlooking the creek. The cabin is built up on blocks and it gives it a great treehouse vibe. Large pecans shade the entire area. The host brought us trash bags quickly after we ran out. We will be back!
The living space was very clean and well organized. The scenery and wildlife were abundant. However, there is no indoor lounge area or covered exterior lounge area. Typically not an issue for this setting but it rained during our stay! The bed is only a full - not a queen. The AC is a wall mount style and not central heat/air. As long as you are comfortable with these warnings, this is a great place to stay! The hosts were very close but did not interrupt our stay. We had a great time swimming in the creek and even hung out with visitors at a nearby cabin. Thanks & GIG EM!
