Romatic Hideaway or Personal Retreat

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Situated on the back of 2 1/2 acres and convenient to Boerne and San Antonio

The Cabin feels like it's in the woods but it's at the back corner of 2.5 acres within a neighborhood. The Cabin is perfect for 2 with a Queen bed and flat screen TV with access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon, Pandora and more through Roku.

The kitchen is complete with a small fridge (microscopic freezer), microwave, hot plate, toaster, and coffeemaker. We've got pots, pans, dishes, and utensils, and even provide a few kitchen staples; coffee filters, salt, pepper, coffee, creamers.

What makes the cabin truly special is the outdoor bathroom. Step outside the sliding door to an outdoor shower, a sink perched on a tree stump, and a fully enclosed toilet room. There's nothing like a hot shower under a moonlit sky. We provide towels and a blow dryer.

A charcoal grill and chiminea are on the back deck - making it the perfect place to end a sparkling day in the Hill Country. We don't provide charcoal or firewood.

The Cabin will be your dog's paradise. Up to 2 well behaved dogs (no aggressive breeds, nighttime howlers, indoor poopers or furniture chewers) are welcome at $10 each or $15 for 2 pups PER night. The backyard is fully fenced and there's plenty of area to explore.

If working out is your thing, our onsite gym is right across from you. The gym has 3 different cardio machines, free weights and a multi use weight machine. A flat screen TV and Roku are in there too.

We enjoyed our stay

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was nice and quite and secluded for being that close to town. We loved the idea of the outdoor shower.

Coziest Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

First off Rick and Meryl we're amazing hosts! They were very helpful and knowledgeable on local restaurants and cities near by. This place was the coziest cabin to have for a romantic getaway! Our favorite spot was definitely the unique outside shower and outside fire place! We look forward to coming back really soon! 😍

Unique and creative!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off I want to say the owners Meryl and Rick were tremendously friendly and helpful!!! This place was very unique in furnishings and creative in so many ways!!! You really get the feel of being in a camping experience with all the indoor pluming so to speak!!! The outdoor shower was exhilarating!!! The use of rough cut wood on doors and corrugated walls on the shower gave it a uniqness of its own!! We had a great time and would go back in a minute!!! By the way there is a book there that is part of the library, it is full of valuable information on the area. I took so notes and found some cool caves to see just north of when this place is!!! Also "Sam's Burger Joint" in San Antonio has FANTASTIC live music!!!!!! Happy trails!!!!!!

We always have a great stay with our Boerne host!

  • 5 of 5

We love visiting San Antonio, since it means we're staying at our cozy, cabin in Boerne where things are rustically funky and fun. With the fenced yard our Great Dane (Ares) and Bull Terrier (Xena) get to explore and play a little chase while relaxing under the stars soaking in the Texas weather. Meryl and Rick are the best, like you've know them for years! As we say in Texas, me Casa Y Casa! Happy New Year!
