We loved our stay here! As we arrived we spotted the gorgeous longhorns on the property. As we slowed down to take a picture, they immediately all came running up to the pasture fence. We initially thought they were just adorably friendly, until we saw the baby behind them that they were protecting. It was incredible! The fishing cabin is even cuter in person. It’s entrance and the cabin itself is tucked into the trees, so it feels very private. The entire property is picturesque. Shortly after we arrived, Joan greeted us and provided us with some juice, milk, bacon, and fresh eggs from her chickens for breakfast the next day. It was very thoughtful and much appreciated. We only had one full day in the area, and ended up spending the whole time on the property. We roamed the property and saw the livestock, chickens, deer, and even a jack rabbit. Very peaceful, and the view of the hills across the road is breathtaking. All around it was a perfect trip. One note though (and certainly not a complaint) but when the windmill gets going, it has a high pitch squeal to it. After awhile you don’t notice it much, but if you’re a light sleeper and you’re staying on a windy weekend you might want to pack your earplugs.

I always let my wife fill these things out. I asked her to let me do this one because I was so impressed with the location, the accommodations, the people who own it, the thought..care..love..and effort taken to see that we had exactly the experience WE wanted. I so appreciated all of it, and hope to be back (with family) many times in the future to rest, relax, stare at the stars, quietly hug my wife, watch the sunsets, and dream I am experiencing the life of my ancestors who helped tame this fine area of Texas. This citified seventh generation survivor of Goliad thanks you so much (on my 22nd anniversary to the finest woman on the planet) for the blessing of the experience you gave my wife and I during this unusually tough time in America.

Words cannot describe the experiences we had at the ranch. It’s a beautiful property with awesome views ! There’s a sense of serene tranquility with the space. As for actual cabin - it’s nestled between trees, although not quite secluded as one would expect, given the title .. the cabin had all basic amenities and the host also left some good breakfast items.. To do suggestions- On the ranch- 1.) be sure to stargaze when you get a chance..luckily we did stargaze the first night and the second night was cloudy.. 2.) pull your outdoor chairs near the open field and watch the sunset in peace, while sipping wine - for us this was an amazing experience.. 3.) do take a look at the longhorns and pet the horse (my wife did not let me do it.. ) 4.) take a morning walk at the backroad and catch the sunrise view.. Around the ranch- 1.) picnic at Medina river and visit lost maples 2.) visit Ingram lake and Stonehenge II 3.) there’s rattle spring ranch on camp verde side where (while driving) we saw some exotic animals like Zebras and several types of antelopes.. 4.) oh and the ranch opposite to it had white bison (very rare- 1 in 10million!) read less

My husband and I had a great time at this cabin, we will definitely be back! The location is beautiful with great views of the hills and Longhorns. The cabin is close to another house but is surrounded by trees so it feels secluded. The owners of the property are friendly and helpful. The cabin came with supplies for breakfast like pancake mix, fresh eggs and sausage. This was a great place to relax and is a short drive to downtown Bandera

This cabin is a perfect weekend getaway. Joan could not have been more gracious, and the cabin itself could not have been more welcoming, comfortable, and clean. Highly recommend and I can't wait to come back.

We stayed at the fishing cabin for the Labor Day weekend. We met the owner of the property who is a sweet lady. The host left everything we needed to make breakfast: pancake mix, eggs, sausage, milk, juice, fruit, etc. The bed in the loft is super comfy! The property is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay. Great location!
