My husband and I had a great time staying at the stronghold. We hiked the natural area 25 min away and then cooled off in the creek in the back. We were able to disconnect from society because there truly is no wifi or cell reception. Our dogs loved it there. First water trip for one of the pups and he started getting his swimming legs under him. It was a great place to play with them and get much needed R&R.

Tricia and Jon, We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to book with you. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. We enjoyed everything about it. The cabin was AMAZINGLY clean, y'all were the perfect host/hostess. We enjoyed the conversations, especially with Jon in the mornings. Although, you gave us ALL the privacy we wanted, we just couldn't resist our morning talks with Jon. The water was refreshing. The cabin was comfortable. The scenery was beautiful and the quiet was amazing! Thank you again! I highly recommend staying if you are in need of some quiet and close enough to surrounding towns to get out and explore, too!

This was a great little cabin right by the creek. The hot tub was relaxing and the creek was nice. We made a fire in the fire pit and cooked a steak. It was a very relaxing weekend and out two dogs enjoyed the space. The cabin is perfect for 2-3 people. Patricia was awesome, very accommodating. A very heavy storm came through the morning that we were leaving that flooded the creek. Patricia was really sweet and kept us informed with storm updates. She even offered to let us stay in the cabin as long as we wanted until the storm died down. We will def. be back!

This cabin was perfect for 2 people and our fur baby. All the necessary details were covered and you didn't want for a thing. The quiet and calm of this property allow you to just breathe and unwind. Loved the fall foliage and the multitude of wildlife. Used the hot tub and the fire pit and enjoyed the "camping" experience. Will be back for sure -- thinking summer time.

We enjoyed our stay for our anniversary! Lovely quiet little spot on the deep creek. Cabin was very clean and well stocked. Be sure to check the fridge before you go to the store, as there are lots of things there! Owners were very nice and accommodating. The location is perfect to travel all over the hill country. Most little towns are only 30 mins away, plus many state parks. Hot tub was perfect for bird watching!

This was our second Thanksgiving at the Stronghold Cabin "Red Cloud". Patricia and Jon are very welcoming and accommodating. The cabin is right on a little river stream...the water is crystal clear and beautiful. If you come in the Fall, you will spot deer and wild turkey on the property. They accept pets, (small fee), so we really appreciate traveling with our babies. The cabin is small but has everything you need to cook and enjoy a lot of relaxation. I would recommend bringing a couple small reclining camp chairs to sit in the living room if you want to watch a DVD, or you will have to lounge on the bed. The bed is a full size, but my husband and I had to sleep really close. We are used to a King, but it really isn't a big deal. There's a lot to do in Bandera and the surrounding area. We kayaked down the river at the Bandera city park, hiked at the nearby Hill Country State Natural Area (10 miles away). Take a walk downtown and check out all the little shops and restaurants. The Old Forge has great steaks !!! Patricia and Jon live in a house just next door but you'd never know they were there....they let you have all the privacy you need. Oh, don't forget to bring you swimsuit and sit the hot tub on the back porch! We love this place.
