The Nest Cabin Resort - Hummingbird #7

Property Type : Guest House | Resort | Lodge

Property Description

It's only fair for you to ask what the Hummingbird Cabin in The Nest Cabin Resort has to offer for your upcoming Hill Country vacation. We're happy to tell you that whatever your priorities are for the ideal getaway, it's got them! It's close to Pipe Creek, Bandera, the Hill Country State Natural Area, and the Medina and Guadalupe Rivers; it offers a wide variety of fun and relaxing activities and amenities; and it's on a property uniquely designed for you to enjoy privacy when you want it, too!

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.

We'd like to point out from the get-go that each cabin at The Nest Cabin Resort comfortably accommodates up to three people. However, it's important to note that this is a good-sized resort, and there are several vacation cabin rentals available here! If you're looking for great kid-friendly Hill Country lodging for a larger group, please contact us for more information on space options and booking availability.

As you approach The Nest, you're greeted in style: a big red barn stands on the property, a nostalgic and welcoming centerpiece that tells you something special is underway! The design of the resort is such that all the cabins have been arranged to maximize individual privacy. When you stay at the Hummingbird Cabin, you'll have a shaded porch, the perfect place to sip your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. By the way, the cabin faces west, so you'll have a ringside seat for those amazing Hill Country sunsets!

Privacy is nice, but there are times when our guests are in the mood to socialize. The Nest has a roomy pavilion with plenty of picnic tables, and a clear, cool, and refreshing pool; both are wonderful settings where guests can meet! Right in front of the cabins is a big grassy field, with plenty of space for tossing footballs and frisbees-so be sure to brings yours along. You can also enjoy a game of cornhole (bags), or test your aim in a round of axe throwing! (axe throwing is at your own risk and The Nest does not supply axes)  All are invited to have fun, but please play safely; for your protection and ours, we require a signed release of liability. If you'd like to smoke here, please do so outside only.

Your time inside the Hummingbird Cabin will be comfortable, with AC, heating, and ceiling fans installed to keep your interior space just as you like it. The open floor plan is highlighted by handsome woodwork and natural light, and a big king-sized bed and futon provides comfy slumber for three. The full bath features a large shower, and clean and soft bed and bath linens are included. Local-channel TV provide entertainment, and you can relax on both a sofa and bar-style seating. Finally, there's a full kitchen equipped with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and sink, along with dishes, silverware, and cups.

Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.
