Property Description

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!

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. Bring your Roku along for the two TVs 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!

My son, myself, and our lab really enjoyed this place! I love sitting outside with my dog and we did that quite a bit. The view looking towards the creek during the day is beautiful and the blanket of stars at night is perfect! The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. The house is cute and very clean.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very well equipped with everything you could need. We enjoyed the paddle boat and kayak and had tubes we brought as well. We got to see deer in the mornings. One thing that would have made it nicer would be stabilizing the deck better, and provide a ladder or other way to get out of the water. I'm not able to push myself up on my arms to get out on the dock.

We had a great 3 night stay. The scenery was great, the hosts was amazing and answered any questions we had. This was our first time staying in an Air bnb and from now on that's how it will be.
