All of the kitchens are fully furnished, including a microwave, toaster, coffee pot (including filters), oven, stove, refrigerator, freezer and dish soap. The bathrooms are furnished with liquid hand soap, a small bar of shower soap and we get you started with 1 rolls of toilet tissue per bathroom. We supply the large liners for the outside trash can.
BRING ALL LINENS: pillows, blankets, sheets, bath towels and kitchen towels, linens may be available for an additional fee, please call for more details
Please bring paper towels and kitchen and bathroom trash bags, as well as spices, like salt and pepper.
Don’t forget your outdoor chairs, snorkels, fishing poles & minnow traps for the riverfront!
Lighter fluid, matches and charcoal if you will be grilling outside.
Firewood is available at our office.
Tubes for rent $10 per day or free air compressor.
Inflatable kayaks $25 per day.
Extra bags of ice and river shoes (old tennis shoes work great) come in handy.
A few good books for lying out. There is also a library in Leakey.
Other items that might be useful to bring: binoculars, camera, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, beach towels, layout/folding chairs, ice chest, canopy, bike, coffee, iron/ironing board, board games, butterfly net and
DVDs – some accommodations have a DVD player.
There are some small “mom and pop” stores in Leakey that are well stocked but you will probably want to pick up the majority of your groceries before you arrive. The last major grocery store you will pass on your way here is in Hondo. There will be an HEB on the Eastbound side of the Hwy 90; it’s about 45 minutes from your cabin.
If this is your first time to visit, please print off the directions for the trip. Our physical address will NOT show up correctly in your GPS, or you can click our interactive map on this page . When you arrive, drop by the office to check-in and pickup your key.
