The cabin layout consist of a combined open kitchen and living area in the front half, a single bathroom with shower, and 3 separate bedrooms in the back half. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds in each and a bunkroom with 3 twin size bunkbeds to put all the kids.
The Llano River is located about 300' directly in front of the cabin. The river is visible through the trees and the view varies based on the amount of foliage. Note that the cabin does not directly overlook the river but sits back far enough to stay out of the floodplain. The one acre where the cabin is located is direct river frontage.
The cabin sits on stilts 8' feet above the ground which offers a great view of the area from the deck - perfect for watching birds and wildlife.
Although there are houses in the area, the brush and trees around the cabin make it very secluded. The closest house to the cabin is behind it about 100 yards and hardly visible. If you are wanting peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed.
Please note there is NOT a TV or Internet service.
All the river pictures shown on the website were taken in the area of the river directly in front of the cabin. At the end of the trail to the river is a large granite rock to use for setting up lawn chairs, ice chest, etc. In front of the rock is a perfect area for the kids (and adults) to swim. The water depth ranges from 1-4' with some fun rapids to bounce down.
The cabin is approximately 300 yards East of the post office and sits back 200 yards back from highway 152 towards the river.
