Lightning Bug Springs Retreat-Texas Star Cabins

Property Type :

Property Description

*** This property is request to book only - you must inquire about availability prior to booking ***

Looking forward to a gathering of folks, but not looking forward to finding accommodations for all of them in a relaxing location with great amenities? We've got a cure for that headache! Treat them to an amazing Hill Country getaway in the Texas Star Cabins at the Lightning Bug Springs Retreat near Concan. There's space for up to 14 guests between these two cabins, all in a peaceful and scenic country setting. No cookie-cutter hotel rooms for your crew; these are awesome country guest homes!

The Lone Star and Gone Fishin' cabins combine to create the perfect holiday rental to get away from it all. They're just down the road from Concan, home to tubing, swimming, and fishing on the Frio River, and Garner State Park is only 15 minutes away! Yet all this is out in the country enough to provide peace and quiet when you want it. By the way, if you're looking for a Hill Country escape for even more of your folks, let us know! There are additional fantastic vacation rentals here at the Retreat.

Both cabins feature shaded decks with comfortable outdoor furniture; they set the stage for relaxing conversation, sunset viewing and stargazing, wildlife watching, or just kicking back and unwinding. Each cabin also comes with a charcoal grill; between that and a fully-equipped kitchen inside both locations, you'll be set for everything from simple snacks to full, hearty meals. Behind the cabins, there's a custom swimming hole, created on the Dry Frio just for our guests! Smokers are welcome, but please smoke outdoors.

Brilliant woodwork with a warm luster all its own graces both cabins, and both provide a comfortable home away from home for you and yours. In each cabin, you'll find a spotlessly-clean full bath with a shower stall, and between the two cabins there are four bedrooms (two in each location), and sumptuous and soft bedding for up to 14 guests. If you'd like clean bed and bath linens provided during your stay, let us know when you book; we'll be happy to include them for a reasonable fee. Interior comfort is assured with efficient AC and heating units, and Wifi Internet service is also available for your convenience.

The Texas Star Cabins are just what the doctor ordered for a relaxing and recharging escape from the day-to-day grind. Contact us at Backroads Reservations, and we'll get you on your way to a vacation escape where you can unplug, unwind, and reset.

*The entire Lightning Bug Springs Texas Star Cabin sleeps up to 14 guests in multiple cabins. For larger groups, inquire about availability**

    What’s in a Name: Nameless, Texas

    About five miles northeast of Lago Vista, and three north of Jonestown, you’ll find remnants of an interesting Hill Country ghost town. Nameless, Texas, never reached even 100 residents, and its overall history was fairly ordinary, but at the heart of its history is one of the most frustrating examples of governmental bureaucracy you’ll find anywhere.
