Breathe Deeply, A Cozy Austin Cabin

12217 Twin Creeks Road , Manchaca, TX 78652 USA (Show map)


A stone throw form the Austin City Limits, this cabin is situated in 2.5 wooded acres surrounded by gardens inviting you and the butterflies. There is an old stone well filled by an aquifer. Land is inhabited by deer, owls, many birds, lizards and of course butterflies. This is a sanctuary for animals and guests. Lounge in the dappled sun on the patio near a running pond. Prepare a leasurly bar b que. Talk late into the night by the fire pit sipping tea and nibbling s'mores. This 100+ year old cabin has been revived and furnished with love. Time seems to stand still while soaking in the deep old claw tub filled with endless hot spring water. Drifting to sleep, become aware of the crackling in the wood burning stove, a train whistle and the trickling pond. Breakfast choices re street tacos or waffles...with pecans? Its possible that you will be tempted to stay all day. However, the center of Austin or San Marcos, with music, swimming, fishing and kayaking are just 15-20 minutes from this retreat. Circuit of the Americas is just 18 miles through country roads.
