Property Description

Imagine a couple's cabin getaway with stunning views, a peaceful remote location, where a complimentary breakfast is delivered to your door each day. Well, imagine no more! All this and more awaits you at Sophie's Cottage at the Last Outpost. Nestled in the scenic Hill Country just north of Bandera, this homey and romantic rental features the very best of both town and country; not only is the Cowboy Capital of the World close by, but so are quaint Hill Country towns like Kerrville and Medina.

This rustic cabin rental is a nature lovers dream and you will love the wildlife-watching opportunities, with game ranches surrounding the property. Try your hand at catch-and-release fishing, or take a refreshing dip in the creek (the depth can be seasonal; inquire when you book). Even more natural and adventurous attractions are nearby, too, with the Hill Country State Natural Area, and the tubing hot spots of the Guadalupe and Medina rivers, all within a half hour's drive.

The outdoor seating area here is the perfect place to take in the glorious mountain views of the Hill Country, with a bracing cup of coffee or relaxing glass of wine. If you're in the mood for a snack or meal outdoors, there's a chiminea, charcoal grill, and fire pit for you to take advantage of here. In addition you'll be able to enjoy complimentary coffee and fresh, succulent local fruit upon arrival.

Sophie's cottage is tucked into a shady grove, and the interior is resplendent with vintage furnishings like a roomy clawfoot tub and antique stained glass window in the bathroom, and a big metal-framed queen-sized bed that's just perfect for two guests. The kitchenette includes a coffee pot and mini fridge, and the fridge is stocked with complimentary beverages. Additionally, all bed and bath linens are also provided. There's a box AC and heating unit for your comfort, and for your entertainment there's a cable-equipped TV and stereo unit with a CD player. The remote location of Sophie's Cottage means there is no Wifi service, and only intermittent cell coverage; please keep this in mind when you plan your stay here.

This vacation rental is perfect for a romantic getaway in the serene beauty of the Texas Hill Country! Contact us here at Backroads Reservations, and we'll help you plan your getaway to Sophie's Cottage.

Had such a great stay! Communication with host was great, and check in was easy. Host provided tons of information on what to do and see in the area and we Loved the little touches like the breakfast items provided. Amazing location for a nice getaway. So nice to relax with some wine and see the sunset in the hill country. Also awesome to wake up to longhorns in the field and chickens running around. The horse is super friendly too and was my girlfriend’s favorite. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Very cozy cabin that was decorated with many charming items. The host met us shortly after arrival and she told us about the property and how she came to own it. I used to live in San Antonio and was familiar with the area around Bandera. It is one of the loveliest parts of the country and this property reflects that! We stayed two nights and spent time nearby in Bandera, Lost Maples State Natural Area, and Garner State Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Dave Fautheree & Debbie Russell Frisco, TX

The stay on the ranch in Sophie’s cottage was such a relaxing experience. Spending the quiet night and morning just being present with grand open land around you and the company of chickens, Longhorns and the most kind horse really made it a stay to remember!

This property is adorable! Quaint and country. The roosters, hens, and longhorn were the perfect country living touch. The owner added snacks, drinks, and surprises for us in the cottage. What a hospital host! Joan even went out of her way to help me print out 23 pages of documents that I needed to review on hard copy! What a fantastic weekend spent in Sophie’s Cottage. Thank you.

Such a great little getaway. The location felt remote and peaceful and the cottage was cozy and very clean. Lots of snacks/breakfast items were available. It was a very hot day but the cottage was perfectly cool and comfortable. The host was there to greet us and she was very kind. The area is great for star gazing. So fun to see the Longhorns just a few feet away! Definitely would recommend staying here. Hope to go back one day!

This was a great little get away from Austin! The farm is awesome, tucked away from the main road with wandering chickens, long horns, a cat and a horse. All of the animals were friendly and fun to have around. The views were incredible at all times of day. Be sure to catch a sunset! The cottage is cute, very clean and stocked with awesome breakfast foods and drinks. There is very little cell phone service which made for a great break from the every day phone pinging. Location is about fifteen minutes from downtown Bandera (there is a river to swim in downtown), 45 minutes from Lost Maples (with a beautiful drive to get down there), one hour or so from Garner State Park and there are a few wonderful wineries between the farm on the way to Fredricksburg. The host checked in with us shortly after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed and offered tips for the stuff around to do. Overall a great experience and would happily go back!
