    this was a great weekend get away. the cabin is stocked with everything you need. town is not far away if you forgot anything. the Blanco river was low the weekend we stayed but we still enjoyed our time. I would definitely stay again.

    the cabin is a wonderful get away. It comes fully stocked and ready for you to enjoy. we grilled some steaks out on the gas grill and just enjoyed the area. we were a bit disappointed that the river was so low, I would check on river flow if you were looking for water fun. we still managed to enjoy the surroundings. town is close by if you need anything and has a few restaurants. I defiantly would suggest the BBQ. If you are looking for a weekend get away this is a great option.
