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.
