This is a kid-friendly and pet-friendly vacation getaway in a mountainside location, with inspirational Hill Country views all around.

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. We have 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, while witnessing the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.
There are 63 acres of Hill Country beauty for you to discover at the Big Fern Cabin, with a wet-weather creek that flows right by your holiday cabin! You won't find a better setting for wildlife and bird watching, hiking, and stargazing. What's more, Garner State Park and the Lost Maples State Natural Area are both within a 20-mile drive. Motorcyclists love it as a center point for a Hill Country tour, and cycles are welcome here! Be aware the drive is a little steep, and is composed of Texas caliche, which can be challenging on a motorcycle.
Outside, you'll find covered parking. The Big Fern Cabin itself has a huge deck, furnished with an outdoor dining setup. The deck is shaded by oaks, and is designed around them, with their trunks rising through the deck itself. The panoramic views you'll enjoy here are the prettiest around! A gas grill and fire pit are also set up for cookouts, snacks, and private gatherings. For the well-being of all involved, a signed release of liability is required to rent the Big Fern Cabin.
Inside, you'll find comfortable space in the living area, along with a dining table that seats four. There's a fully-appointed kitchen, with appliances for meal prep, and a dishwasher for cleanup afterward. Cooking ware, dining ware, glasses, and utensils are provided, too! Central air and heat keep the comfort level to your liking.
Upstairs, there's a master suite with a full bathroom, including a shower and clean linens. The bedroom features a plush and comfy king-sized bed, and with the queen-sized sleeper futon downstairs, there's sleeping space at the Big Fern Cabin for up to four. For added convenience, there's a half-bath on the lower level of the cabin, too.
We'd like to note something you won't find here: TV. This is by design. The Big Fern Cabin is meant to be a true escape, where you can connect with nature, family, and friends without distractions. Many of our guests find this liberating!
