Hill Country Hideout


Property Description

The Hill Country Hideout is without a doubt among the best Hill Country cabins for this or any weekend; it's a genuine home away from home! It's everything you'd want for a perfect remote and private hideaway, or your next romantic weekend getaway. Located just a few miles east of Pipe Creek, it's situated in a wonderfully private and scenic wide-open space, but is still located close to several fascinating locales in the most picturesque region of the Lone Star State.

You'll never feel as at home in a hotel or motel room as you do in this gorgeous and affordable rental home! This cozy space easily accommodates two to three-it's the perfect vacation rental for a romantic getaway! It's furnished with a queen sized bed, plush and comfy living room area, functional kitchen, and cable TV. It's also decked out with both heat and air conditioning, to assure your comfort any time of year. All basic bed and bath linens are included.

As nice as the inside is, you'll want to savor the outdoors when you're our guest here! Out back is a shaded deck, which is accented by an outside lounging and dining area, complete with table and chairs. All this overlooks the spacious lot, replete with colorful Hill Country views and local wildlife. There's even a picnic table provided, so you can enjoy your meals in the fresh air and the cool shade of the trees that grace the property. For nighttime relaxation, farther out back there's a stylish stone-construction fire pit, perfect for those romantic and quiet moments, stargazing, or however you'd like to spend your time in the remote and serene scenery.

No matter your mode of transportation, we've got you covered! This property is horse-friendly, with a private arena, private 40-foot round pen, private turn out area and stalls for your equine friends! The area is also great for motorcycle enthusiasts, with ready access to miles of paved roads that wind through the views that only the Texas Hill Country can provide. It's removed enough from civilization to give you that away-from-it-all feeling, while still offering access to events and attractions in the towns nearby.

Do yourself a favor: don't box yourself in a hotel room, cramped and crowded next to absolute strangers, when you can stretch your legs and live in home-style luxury in The Hideout! There's no better way to relax and let the stress of everyday life melt away than in this spacious Texas cabin rental for this weekend.

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

What guests are saying...

What a great property for a low-key relaxing get-a-way! We were greeted by the owner & gifted a horseshoe. Such a friendly guy-he welcomed us & then left us to enjoy the cabin. We had everything we needed to take advantage of the beautiful scenery & nearby towns. The breezes on the porch were amazing & went perfectly with our iced drinks in the evenings. We got to feed cookies to the horses and our puppies enjoyed the acreage for roaming. Our cabin was large enough to accommodate us & we loved the comfy furniture. Lots of supplies were provided, including coffee, bottled water, paper goods, and utensils of all kind. There was a good Wi-Fi connection & Dish TV. Lots of peace & quiet, but close enough to Boerne, Pipe Creek & Bandera to go antiquing, enjoy the local cuisine, Putt-putt & the Corvette Show! We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations & the time spent there!
We stayed at The Hideout for three nights and it was perfect. We wanted to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet and that is exactly what we were able to do. The little cabin is cute, cozy and comfortable. Butch stopped by to introduce himself on day one and even gifted us a horse shoe and left us biscuits for the horses. Waking up to the two horses waiting for their treats by the porch was amazing, not to mention all the deer roaming around. We made breakfast everyday there, found a couple of good lunch spots and grilled some steaks for dinner. Kerrville is a short drive away and we drove there to spend time at The Cross at Kerrville. It was amazing. So if peace and relaxation is what you’re looking for book it now!
You couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy your weekend. We had an amazing time! When we arrived, Butch (the owner) checked in with us and welcomed us with open arms and great hospitality. He gave us cookies to feed the 2 horses on the property in the morning, such a wonderful time having them walk up to you and feed them out of your hand. We made a total of 3 fires in the fire ring with the wood provided. Roasted some marsh mellows and had a few drinks under the stars with a great hot fire. Cooked breakfast both mornings and used the grill on the second day. Everything was supplied to us for the grill. I would totally come back again for another weekend and maybe stay 3 nights. The house was so clean and we had everything for our stay. Thanks to Butch (the owner) and Spencer (property manager) for such an enjoyable stay for me and my date, who was celebrating her 60 th birthday.

My husband and I needed a home base to visit my grandparents in Texas for a week and this place was perfect. It was so relaxing to come back to and was a breath of fresh air. The cabin is as described with all the needed basics and some added comforts as well. It was very private even with the host near by and the morning visits from the horses for treats! We did bring our dog and she fit right in as well. I would recommend that you be comfortable with horses though, but I am sure the host would work with you if you aren't because missing staying here would be a shame! There are also flood lights for when it gets dark and you need to walk the dog. I would recommend you bring a good flashlight though. We LOVED the sunrises and had our coffee on the beautiful porch with an authentically Texas landscape view. There are fans on the porch and the a/c / heater inside was on point. We mostly used the a/c but there was one cold night. Internet was also surprisingly good - 100 Mbps... If I had needed to work at all it would of been fine too. Highly recommend!
I don’t want to leave a review because I want to keep this hidden gem to our self! Absolutely loved the house. Seclusion was number one on our list and that is what we got. The house is in a huge property. The owner (Butch) lives on property but is not located anywhere near by and on the other side of the property. Butch greets you with a area calendar of events, an authentic retired horse shoe and horse cookies for the roaming, domestic horses that belong to him. The horses keep there distance but will greet you in the morning. As soon as we opened our door, there they were waiting for horse cookies! Don't mess up like us and give them all to them in one go. We should have saved some for every morning. We loved te experience! Butch tells you about the rules and then disappears for your stay. You get your own entrance to the property. Butch has his own. So you don’t have to share the drive way with anyone. Nights are dark and peaceful. The wind chime offers the cabin it’s own soundtrack. It chimes peacefully all day and night. The shower is amazing. The bed and pillows were amazing. Everything was just perfect and well thought out. The place is amazing!! It was about 60 degrees during our stay. So we opened the double doors and let the wind blow in. We sat there in the cold breeze just taking it all in. That night, we moved the table and chairs from the porch, turned on the Christmas lights Butch has around the rails, and danced under the stars. We went to buy canned soup for the fun of it and heated them up on the BBQ pit. We also had the camp fire pit going. It was dark and fun eating out of cans heated to perfection. We wish we could have stayed longer but it was time to get home to our babies. We planned this little get away for our 4 year anniversary, Dec 9th. We are beyond happy with our stay! We will be back! Loved every minute! Thank you for the last minute change in our reservation. We appreciated everything that was done for us to have a great stay. Spencer, you’re awesome!”
Loved this cabin! Peaceful, clean, comfortable and the wildlife was a bonus! Butch is a terrific host and made us feel right at home! Check-in was a snap, and we had all that we needed for a great little getaway! The firepit was wonderful on a crisp November night and the deer and horses on the property were amazing! Wish we could have stayed longer! If you're looking for a place to vacate the hustle and bustle, you will love the Hideout!
