Cabin Holiday Rental
The love of history, romance, quiet and adventure is elevated while staying at this cabin. The log room of the cabin was built in 1846, the year the State of Texas issued a title to this ranch's first owner (a copy on display). A sample of the original interior finish (mud and straw) is also displayed. A stone kitchen and bedroom were added at later dates along with the modern bathroom. The log cabin was home to frontiersmen, but for 60 or more years it was used as a barn. Your host and family worked for three years to make this house the special place it is today. The native stone front rock porch leads into the log cabin. The living room is furnished with an antique couch and chair placed to enjoy TV/DVD. The bedroom is furnished with a king bed. An antique armoire is provided for hangi...The love of history, romance, quiet and adventure is elevated while staying at this cabin. The log room of the cabin was built in 1846, the year the State of Texas issued a title to this ranch's first owner (a copy on display). A sample of the original interior finish (mud and straw) is also displayed. A stone kitchen and bedroom were added at later dates along with the modern bathroom. The log cabin was home to frontiersmen, but for 60 or more years it was used as a barn. Your host and family worked for three years to make this house the special place it is today. The native stone front rock porch leads into the log cabin. The living room is furnished with an antique couch and chair placed to enjoy TV/DVD. The bedroom is furnished with a king bed. An antique armoire is provided for hanging clothes and stores extra bedding. Adjacent to the bedroom is the bathroom where you can enjoy a luxurious bath in a 7' whirlpool tub. The kitchen has an antique wood burning stove which has been converted to two burner electric cooktop. A refrigerator, electric oven, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and slow cooker are also provided. Dishes are in the old pie safe. Outside stairs (very steep) lead to a small loft style bedroom with two twin beds (great for children). Your hosts cook and deliver a hot breakfast each day. The second bedroom is found across the dogtrot breezeway, and although rented as part of the cabin it is very private for the second couple in your group. Inside is a queen bed faced to enjoy the flat screen TV over the door. There is a small coffeebar with a coffeemaker and microwave. A table for two is at the foot of the bed to enjoy morning coffee. The bath has a large tiled shower and notice the antique cabinet with the sink sunk into it. There are lots of special touches in this bedroom/bath, but my favorite is all of the Mason jars that have been converted into light fixtures. Outside is a special treat! Flowers to attract butterflies and hummingbirds are grown as seasons permit. The spacious backyard has a picnic table, grill, glider rocker and a lovely view of ranchland. Deer are often seen. A pond for fish (bass) is nearby. This is a working ranch, but you are welcome to walk trails or jog down the mile long granite gravel road. Hunting season begins the first weekend in November and continues through early January. This is a time to be very careful, so check with your host before hiking during the hunting season. *The home is pet friendly and will accept up to two dogs. However, there is an additional pet fee of $22/dog/night (before tax). Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog, so that we can insure that you're charged correctly.* *If you have food allergies or are on a special diet, please let us know at the time of booking, as your hosts, the Fluitts, would be happy to tailor your breakfast accordingly.* *The loft bedroom can only be accessed by climbing a fairly steep set of exterior stairs. Furthermore, this is the only bedroom that does not have a bathroom attached to it.*More
