Located north of Leakey in Rancho Real, this cabin is ideal for a romantic getaway vacation. The cabin overlooks Bluff Creek which feeds into the west prong of the Frio River.

Enjoy listening to the water flowing from the private dam spillway. The deck is perfect just for hanging out, watching the fish and birds below, or entertaining and cooking on the grill.

The very charming cabin can sleep 3. There is a very comfortable queen bed, and a single sleeper sofa with a memory foam topper. There is a small refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, dishes, and utensils. Also, television with basic Direct TV,ceiling fans, A/C, and electric heaters. Furnished in rustic decor, it boasts a beautiful large stained glass window emitting soft light into the room.

Very nice decks and a private hot tub, out door shower.

Upon your arrival, enjoy wine waiting for you in the cabin.

Cell phone service is not available due to being in the canyon, however; there is a phone in the cabin.

Romantic Cabin Getaway
Leakey Texas Hill Country

Utterly peaceful & gorgeous hide-away

Utterly peaceful & gorgeous hide-away
  • 5 of 5
When I reserved this quaint cabin, I knew I was in for a relaxing time. What I wasn't expecting the utterly overwhelming beauty, peace, and serenity provided by Chris' cabin. Chris has created a haven of nature that really provides a space where you can feel as though you truly got away from the hustle and bustle. The cabin sits right on a dam and the continuous flow of water is perfect to sit and listing to. Our first night there was a powerful thunderstorm that was gorgeous to experience and when we woke the next morning, the dam was roaring with water! The sounds of everything! The sounds of the chickens running wild, the sounds of the hummingbirds zipping around. The cabin was immensely clean and comfortable and a really fancy grill was provided that allowed us to cook everything from pork to pasta to eggs for breakfast. The metal art scattered throughout the property is incredibly unique (I think they actually make it on location!). Chris also let us use a paddle boat and some floats when swimming. The one thing that may bother some people was the composting toilet in the cabin. You can't put paper in there so it collects in a waste bin next to the toilet. I didn't mind at all but I can see others being a bit uncomfortable. I must say, I personally thought it was wonderful how environmentally conscious they were in installing that toilet. Incredibly kind folks, absolutely gorgeous space. Highly recommended!

Beautiful peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
A scenic drive from town leads to a wonderful retreat with a private deck over looking the river. The wonderful owners will loan fishing rods and a great paddle boat to cruise the spillway. Beautifully furnished with a careful eye to the smallest detail and fully stocked kitchen with all the utensils. Chris and Gary are fabulous hosts. Couldn't ask for a more picturesque site with amazing art sculptures. The friendly dogs and chickens will come and greet you, along with the humming birds. Highly recommend!

Our Mini Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay and couldn't be happier being there! We already miss the water sound outside of the door. Chris, you made us feel right at home and loved how the cabin was equipped with everything we needed! Thank you, so much for allowing us to arrive late Friday and the cabin being so welcoming when we arrived from the note cards to the bottle of wine. We will definitely be back we are already talking about at least two more trips back there and are excited to be coming back! Again thank you so much for allowing us to experience you mini paradise!

Absolute Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We will be back to this perfect location. Words cannot describe how great our weekend was. Chris was the best host and made sure we had everything we needed and then some. One day we explored the area, did some hiking, some fishing and just enjoying the natural beautiful surroundings. Another day we grilled steaks on the back deck listening to the water fall over the dam and relaxed in the hot tub. This is one of those "best kept secrets" that we found and if you happen to be looking for a relaxing weekend whether you want to sit and enjoy the surroundings or get out and explore this is it - hands down! Thanks again Chris.

I can't imagine a cozier cabin in a more beautiful place. This trip was the getaway that made me feel like I really got-away. I would love to go back!

If you have any doubts, cast them aside. This is by far the most relaxing vacation we have ever encountered. I always look for a secluded relaxing places each time we are able to getaway for a few days. This has risen to our number one favorite. Chris is an absolute angel and one of the best hosts we have ever had. I fell in love with this cabin and all that surrounds it. Each day brought another level of relaxation and amazement. I was sad to leave and yet, we are already planning on when we can return. Property was described well and very clean. We have recommended this cabin to several friends and family members, hope they are able to enjoy as much as we did soon. Thank you Chris for making this such a magical experience. On top of it all, your artwork is amazing. I absolutely loved every minute we shared and can't wait to return.
