Slowpoke Cabin on Turtle Creek
Image GalleryMore Photos
The Hill Country is famous for its water recreation, and the Slowpoke Cabin near Kerrville is an amazing location for it! This fantastic waterfront guest house is not only right on the banks of Turtle Creek, but the tubing, kayaking, and swimming of the Guadalupe River is only a ten-minute drive from here. When you consider its peaceful country setting with tons of luxurious extras, all just 15 miles from downtown Kerrville, there's no question you've got a winner for your Hill Country escape!
Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. We have 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, while witnessing the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.
Did we mention your private dock? Yep, it's right there on Turtle Creek, and there's even a kayak and paddle boat you can use to explore its waters. Test your angling skills off the dock, or enjoy a conversation and a snack around the riverside fire pit. While there's plenty to enjoy your backyard, keep in mind the water-based adventure and fun of the Guadalupe River is a short trip away.
A big limestone patio gives overlooks the creek, and it's luxuriously equipped with cushioned outdoor furniture. Enjoy a game of cornhole (bags) or badminton, and rustle up some hearty BBQ on the charcoal grill. There's a second fire pit on the patio (this one's propane), and there's even an outdoor shower for post-creek cleanup. This kid- and pet-friendly location is great for wildlife watching and stargazing, too! Smoking's allowed, but outside only.
Inside this fine waterfront rental, it's light and airy, with rustic wood floors and accents. The two bedrooms come with queen-sized beds, and there's a full bath with a shower/tub combo off the master bedroom. With a pull-out that's perfect for a child, there's sweet slumber space for up to five people. There's a second full bathroom, this one with a shower stall, and fresh linens are provided for bed and bath. You'll find a full kitchen, complete with modern appliances, cooking and serving ware, and a handy laundry room, as well. Two TVs (Roku) on site, and there's also Wifi Internet and good cell service; there's even a laptop-friendly work area!
We're proud to invite our visitors to experience the Slowpoke Cabin for themselves! No matter what draws you to the Hill Country, a stay here will make your getaway a fun and memorable experience. Book this amazing guest home with Backroads Reservations today!
