STARGAZER - Cabin #7

Featured in Texas Monthly Magazine:
“Of the thousands of lodging options in the Hill Country, only a fraction are outstanding. What a relief, then, to discover Cabin #7. Tucked away in a thicket of huge oaks in a remote corner of nature-friendly acres. If you’ve come here for the river, you won’t be disappointed.”

Stargazer (cabin 7) Sits on 60 acres of Texas Hill County, Second Wind Ranch. 
The crystal-clear Frio River is just one mile from the ranch.

Peace, quiet, seclusion and the crystal-clear Frio River make this magical place one of the most sought-after rentals in the hill country. Century old oaks provide a shady area to barbecue, enjoy a campfire or just relax. The spacious front porch is perfect for sipping coffee in the morning or enjoying a fireside glass of wine in the evening. There’s an electric fireplace in the living area as well.

Just one mile from our two river accesses, you have full access to either of the following areas:

Shallow Rocky Bank: This spot is perfect for relaxing by the cold Frio River. Imagine sitting in chairs, under canopies, listening to music, and enjoying the tranquil surroundings. It’s also great for families with little ones.  This river bank is located at the Original 6 Cabins property, just one mile from the ranch.

Deep Swimming Hole: If you’re up for more adventure, head to the deep swimming hole. The water levels range from 3 to 12 feet, making it ideal for tubing, kayaking, or simply floating and chilling.  This part of the Frio River is located at the River Terrace Cabins property, just one mile from the ranch.

Astronomy enthusiasts travel from all over the U.S. to star gaze at the ranch’s pristine night sky. The sky is spectacularly lite with the best view of stars you’ll find anywhere.

Bird watching at the ranch is exceptional. Every year bird lovers travel to the ranch to spot some of the most rare breeds including the golden cheeked warbler and the black capped vireo.

Take a walk on our primitive nature trails where abundant wildlife can be seen or stroll down to the open field and watch the fireflies come out at night. Hundreds of deer, turkey and many other species of wildlife can be seen throughout the day from the front porch. Cabin 7 shares this property with one other cabin that is on the other side of the property.  The river access at either of the two spots we own is private to Frio River Cabins guests only.m

5/5
This cabin was absolutely perfect for an unplugged few days. Close to Garner and a reasonable distance from Lost Maples, this was a great base for hitting the state parks and returning to good beds and warm fires. The kitchen had just what we needed for knocking together some meals. The river was so close and there was plenty of space and quiet. Truly beautiful. The kids want to go back every year. Only suggestion would be to offer a self check-in. The office is hard to find at night.

This cabin was so perfect. The location is amazing and was everything we were looking for! It’s secluded and quiet. It has private access to the river. It had everything you could ask for…Picnic tables, fire pit, grill, places to ride our bikes, hike & swim all on one property. The cabin itself was clean and comfortable. Plenty of room to prepare food for grilling out every day! This was the perfect vacation getaway and we can’t wait to go back again!! Don’t forget a lighter for camp fires. We had to drive all the way to Leakey to find one.
