About Lorna Main

My husband and I love to travel and see the world. We built the Cozy Cottage last year to offer other travel lovers a relaxing place to stay. My husband and I both grew up in San Antonio and have lived here most of our lives. We live on the 10-acre property where the Cottage is located and I run the event venue on the front part of it. The cottage is situated in the back with plenty of privacy and quiet surroundings.

Lorna Main purchased this house in 2014

Why Lorna Main chose Far North Central

My parents bought the entire 10-acres in the 1970s. My husband and I know live on it and operate an event venue here. We built the cottage because so many people that came out for weddings over the years have asked us if we have a place for them to stay overnight sometime. Everyone just falls in love with the natural surroundings that they want to come back and stay. The cottage was completed in 2014 on back of the property has always been such a beautiful, peaceful area and we wanted others to be able to enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

Majestic oak trees always swaying in a gentle breeze; peacocks and deer that frolic in the yard; the "Enchanted Forest" feel that has always been a part of this property.

The Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, puppy, and I greatly enjoyed our weekend in the Cozy Cottage. The cottage itself is beautifully designed and appointed. The grounds of the property are stunning, and even though two weddings occurred during the days we stayed, noise was never a problem, and the cottage is tucked away in the back, giving privacy even during an event.

I would highly recommend this excellent rental to anyone exploring the Texas Hill Country and the San Antonio area.

Scenic Springs Cozy Cottage / Dec 23, 2017 - Feb 28, 2018

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cottage was perfect for this retired couple's needs. Lorna and Shawn were promptly attentive to our every request or question, and they were both congenial in their dealings with us whether by text, phone or face to face. We would heartily recommend this lovely get-away location. It is exactly as represented in both pictures and descriptions. We didn't want to leave when our time there was done.

Great property in the country

  • 4 of 5

The property is a cute, cozy, updated cottage with modern amenities sitting on a peaceful green landscape! The property was great, but the owner was even better! She was more than accommodating, kind and attentive! They even hung lights and set up a table for my dinner party! I couldn’t have asked for a better host! The only problem was that we were unable to connect to the WiFi! Once the internet connection problems are fixed- the place gets at 12 out of 10 in my book!

Cute Cottage

We had a wonderful, peaceful weekend away to relax in the gorgeous cottage! The bed was comfortable, and it was close to everything we needed but far enough to get the peace and quiet we needed!! Thanks a bunch!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. The surroundings were quiet, private, and country-like. Yet, we were close to all the golf courses, restaurants, shopping, etc. The cottage met our every need. As a bonus, we had two beautiful peacocks and two gracious hosts nearby.

Nearest Airport
22 Miles
San Antonio International Airport
Car: necessary

Situated in a quiet hamlet halfway between 2 bustling areas. Just 10-15 minutes in either direction, you will find multitudes of shops, restaurants, theaters, nature parks, nightlife, grocery stores, and anything else you may need. Popular spots like the shops at La Cantera, Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Old Town Helotes are just a short drive away. The charming town of Boerne is a 20 minute drive, where you can enjoy the small town feel while walking along Main Street, eating in a restaurant along the river and enjoying wine tastings.
