The Mighty Oaks Retreat

Turn-of-the-century charm (we're talking 20th century here, of course), modern comforts and amenities, and the breathtaking beauty of the Texas Hill Country, all come together here in one of the best country cottage getaways in the Lone Star State! The roomy and inviting Mighty Oaks Retreat will fill the bill, whether you're looking for a family getaway or a romantic weekend away from the daily grind. It's remote, yet just down the road from the charming towns of D'Hanis and Hondo.
Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.
Built in 1904, the Mighty Oaks Retreat has been beautifully maintained and restored, evoking both its 100+ years of history and a sense of modern luxury. This kid-friendly and pet-friendly cottage ranks up there as one of our most popular country house vacation rentals-one look, and you'll see why!
Behind the cottage, under the cooling shade of the trees, are country rockers for you to kick back in-and, should you need more space, there's also a shaded veranda with a comfy conversation pit for larger gatherings. A charcoal grill is also on hand for open-air dining. The property has 352 acres with a seasonal pond and the wide-open rural setting is ideal for hiking, bird and wildlife watching, and stargazing, and the property is surrounded by miles of country roads that are a sightseer's delight-perfect for a motorcycle tour! The rugged and scenic countryside is the perfect backdrop for a calming and authentic Texas vacation.
Inside, central air and heating assures comfort, and there's a spacious living room to socialize in-with a wood - burning fireplace, too. There's also a cozy little alcove that would serve equally well as a kid's play space or romantic snuggling spot. The kitchen's fully equipped with both appliances and basic utensils, and its centerpiece is a wood-topped island with stools. Mighty Oaks has two bedrooms-one with a King-sized bed, the other with two queens, and a sun room with a sofa pull out-sleeping up to six guests. Both bathrooms are equipped with roomy vintage tubs and the master also has a shower. All bathroom and bedroom linens are provided, as well, and there's a combo washer and dryer on site. Rounding out your modern tech needs are satellite TV, Wifi, and good cell coverage.
If you're looking for a guest house for rent in D'Hanis, convenient to miles of picturesque rural roads and the town of Hondo, too, the Mighty Oaks Retreat is your Hill Country hideaway! Give us a buzz at Backroads Reservations, and you'll be on your way to a peaceful holiday.
