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.

What guests are saying...

Katelyn Alexander
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!

The Hideout is very pretty and peaceful. Located halfway between Bandera and Boerne, the country setting is very serene. Feeding the horses was fun and Butch was very nice.
The property was great! Butch was very kind and hospitable. It was a very easy process from check in and checking out. The horses were the best part of the whole stay. The cabin itself was very clean. Overall, we were very happy with it
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Hill Country Hideout! The cabin saw spacious and clean and provided all of the bath and kitchen wear that we needed. The host, Butch, met us upon arrival and gave us a helpful walkthrough. Even though the hot lives on the ranch, it is setup so that you feel like you have the place to yourselves. The roaming horses made for excitement for my young son, too. We made a daytrip to Joshua Springs which had a family friendly park, dog park, and trails.
