Mary & Howard .. Austin Tx

We've never seen a river so clear! We liked looking at the many fish swim by. The Axis deer were abundant. Horseback riding was wonderful. We had a relaxing and enjoyable 25th anniversary here and it was our first to the Hill Country. Lord willing we'll be back and invite others.
Richard & Nelda Oakley .. Floresville Tx

We feel very fortunate to have found the Humming Bird Haven for our stay in the Hill Country for Nature Quest. The cabin is a restful retreat after a day of nature study and birding. Wonderful people live in this area, and we have been blessed being around them.
The Cunningham's .. Temple Tx

This cabin is perfect. The river,the birds,the deer,the fireflies(my first time to see them),the whippoorwill call of the bird every night was just so cool. I did my first rope swing into the river (I'm 53). Lost Maples was great, the Hicks House sandwich shop makes the best chicken salad around. Sitting out under the trees and stars at night was Amazing. Thank you.
Lubbock Tx

This was everything and more! We really enjoyed everything about the cabin, the nature, and getting away from the "rush" of our everyday lives. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you to Tracy for being so nice and allowing us the chance to visit. We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know! Thank you again.

We have had an Amazing time! What a lovely place this is. From the cabin to the terrain, there is something for everyone. The Hummingbirds, relaxing atmosphere has kept my son very happily entertained and myself in a dreamy trance. Thank you for one of the most peaceful vacations we have ever taken. We will no doubt be back soon.
Kimberly & Caleb Miller

This place has been everything we expected and more. The cabin was just wonderful and the equipment just like the advertisement said it was. The water was "too great" to mention. This is the best place to be. We took a short trip to Garner State Park and couldn't wait to get back HERE! We all loved this vacation, had a great and relaxing time & we will be back.

We enjoyed our stay and can't believe it's already time to leave. We never left the area because our kids were so entertained with the river,from swinging on the rope and fishing all day. We enjoyed the nights on the deck just relaxing. This cabin was so comfortable. Thank you for a peaceful vacation.

Gretchen & Manu..Lubbock Tx

This place is amazing! It is so beautiful... from the house to the river and even just the land, itself. It made me feel like I was in a storybook. When I went to the river, I felt like I was in Winnie the Pooh's cottage or in Tarzan or something. This place is just gorgeous! You keep the place up and well maintained. I hope I will be able to come back again and make many more memories, both wonderful and cherish able with my family. Definitely one of the best vacation places I have been to.

Evelyn Brown .. Orange Grove Tx

Great relaxing time in this wonderful historical house. It rained all weekend and was very cold for Easter. We still had the best time... played cards,played pool, cooked outside. Fire place is a great feature to warm and inviting living room. Thank you for allowing our dogs to come along as they are a part of our family. Would like to return when weather is hot to enjoy the river and rope swing.
Ramos Family, Salazar Family & Grandma & Grandpa

There were three families staying here this week. We had a truly amazing time. The scenery was beautiful, the river was wonderful, & the history in this place was incredible! We traveled around different cabins (including Neal's & Riding River Ranch) and none compares to this place! We enjoyed each other's company, but each had their own space. The children had so much room to play. The river here alone does all...tubing,playing.rope swing, and just sitting back and relaxing! Our time here together was memorable. If others weren't coming in today we'd stay a few more days! See you next year.
The Tharp's The Smith's and the Vargas'

We had a fantastic time! Looking forward to spending another holiday weekend here. Thanks again.
Don & Kim Moynahan

What a delightful place of retreat. This is our second New Year's here and it has been just what was needed to usher out the old year and welcome in the new year with a renewed energy and spirit. This is a place of hospitality.
Bill Connelly and Linda Butler .. Houston Tx

Memorial Day Weekend The Young Ranch Crew was here one more time. Another Large Time was had by all!

Got some much needed rain but didn't spoil our fun! Kids had a blast! Awesome site for birthday scavenger hunts. Enjoyed food, friends,river, & porch all week long! Can't wait to come back!
The Davis and Bailey Clan

This place is truly amazing! The house is so beautiful and the thought of staying in a house that has been here for over 100 years is so cool. My family loved every moment. The river is gorgeous and the tress are huge! Thank you for the opportunity to stay here. It was so wonderful.
Cayla Kent .. San Antonio

What an incredible place! My husband and I like to find cabins to stay in on our journeys but this is far & away the Very best we've found! The birds - the deer- the squirrels - the fireflies- all the fish- we loved them. Enjoyed catching some Big fish and then releasing them. wonderful swimming hole. I could go on and on. I pray that God blesses you richly for making such a wonderful retreat available. When we came into the house a saw all the pictures of kids and grandkids we immediately felt at home. We hope to return with our grandkids! Thank you and bless you.
Linda and Richard Hall .. Spring Tx

We had the time of our lives! We hiked,fished,swam, swung, floated,walked, and laughed before we reluctantly slept. My husband and brother in law performed some pretty cool tricks off the swing. Thanks so much for letting us stay. We hope to come back and visit soon.

We spent a couple of days here and celebrated our son's 16th birthday. We loved the wonderful fire in the pit, the river,the woods, and the hike at the Lost Maples park. Thanks for having such a nice place!

We had an amazing time here escaping from the busy lives we lead. This is such a beautiful place we want to come back this summer. All of us swung from the swing so many times we have blisters. Thanks for sharing this great place with us.

We've had a wonderful time staying here. The scenery and wildlife makes this place special. I took lots of pictures. It was great to just relax here and not have to drive back and forth to S.A. between our 2 performances at the Utopia Rodeo. Thanks again! We hope to come back with out 3 lassies sometime soon!

The Kirkpatrick family of Houston

Came here for our anniversary and couldn't be happier. Within the 1st 24 hours, we lost count of how many tomes we turned to each other and said, "it's just so beautiful!" Thanks for allowing us to take our fishing obsession to another level (we must hook that carp!) Consider yourselves warned, we want to come back with the kids, all 7 of them!
Bryan & Alexie Rutledge........Lumberton, TX

Such a beautiful place on earth! We had a wonderful time sitting on the swing. We enjoyed fishing in the river, the land,the river, the picnic table and nature are simply gorgeous! We thought it was fairy tale land. Everything else in the cabin us also very accommodating, very clean, and cozy! Thank you very much for making this place so magical & cozy. We will come back in the summer.
Tran Family

What a peaceful & pretty location! Great chance to check out the Hill Country while having a Thanksgiving break. Enjoyed the pretend fishing by the clear river ( the fish were to smart for us) most of all, the peace and calm,& sitting on the porch in the evenings! Thank you!
Raine, Alex, Jamie, & Sam Kadinopoules, living in Houston but from the UK.

My Dad use to say "Texas is God's Country" I think this part of Tx is truly His! This property is so lovely. We visited Garner State Park and got some great pictures. We enjoyed fishing on THIS property, but we knew the fish got that big because no one could entice them with any lure! We were able to build a great fire in the fire pit on such a chilly night- fabulous! The reason we came --- Jerry's Birthday! We hiked at Lost Maples park then came back a grilled rib eyes! This has been a great getaway! Thanks for opening your cabin and sharing this bit of paradise!
