We just got home from a long weekend at Walnut Canyon Cabins! It was our second trip and I miss it terribly already! The owners have truly thought of everything you could need or want while at the cabins and the view and peacefulness of the area makes it perfect! They provide everything you need for a wonderful breakfast and we had enough for breakfast two days! There's a grill, stove and microwave so it's easy to cook or grill your own meals while there. We visited the Black Pig, at the hosts suggestion and we were so happy there was a place to get a wonderful hot meal nearby also! (We missed eating at the Alamo Springs Cafe again this trip but I hear that it's wonderful also. While we were there, both them and The Black Pig were only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I think so you might want to check!) I can't wait for out next trip to Fredericksburg and I wouldn't stay anywhere but the Walnut Canyon Cabins!

Perfect getaway weekend

We had a great stay in The Woods cabin. Perfect size and the fresh eggs with biscuits and Candian bacon were a nice touch. Easy drive into Fredericksburg but quiet and country feel blended the best of both worlds. Definitely coming back!

We went for a little hunting in Stonewall and stayed here! Great cabin, peaceful and quiet! Close enough to town but far enough to enjoy peace and quiet! We have another trip planned next month!

Relaxing Weekend

5 on March 14, 2017

My husband and I stayed for a relaxing weekend away from the craziness of life. It was just what we needed! The view from our cabin was amazing! Sitting on the deck first thing in the morning with a hot cup of coffee and hearing nothing but nature. What an experience! We loved everything about our cabin. It was well stocked, super clean, and very well maintained. About 20-30 minute drive to Fredericksburg through some beautiful country roads. We would highly recommend Walnut Canyon Cabins.

One of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed at!

New Years Getaway

Great Stay

Had a great stay. Cabins were clean and well equipped. Especially enjoyed the fresh eggs from the on site chickens. The kids enjoyed the goats and chickens as well.

Long Weekend Getaway

5 on February 16, 2016

We just returned from a long Valentine's weekend stay at The Woods cabin. We absolutely loved our time there. It was so nice to be close enough to Fredericksburg to experience the town but far enough out to enjoy the true beauty and peacefulness of the Hill Country. We enjoyed mornings sitting on the back porch drinking coffee and listening to all the animals waking up and moving about. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need. We will absolutely be back!

A True Get Away

5 on October 05, 2015

We came to Fredericksburg for Oktoberfest and the wineries, but staying at the Lookout cabin was the highlight of the trip. The views alone are well worth it. Very peaceful and relaxing, it was just what we needed. And the fresh eggs were great! Having breakfast on the porch overlooking the valley below was amazing. We will definitely be back.

Anniversary Retreat

5 on September 22, 2015

We celebrated out 32nd anniversary in Lookout Cabin. The views, the privacy and tranquility were exactly what we were looking for! The cabins are extremely clean, and the hospitality from David and Laurie was attentive yet unobtrusive. Little touches like the breakfast items provided (fresh eggs!!) make this a "let's repeat" trip. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and de-stress.......this is it. Bring what you need with you and you don't even have to leave the cabin. It is a great get away!
