Best Little Cabin in Texas property photo

Looking for a quiet, private, peaceful hideaway for the weekend or longer? You will love The Best Little Cabin in Texas, hidden on 300+ acres in the middle of the beautiful Lost Pines of Texas between Smithville and Bastrop, only one hour from Austin. Our cabin, located on the highest point in the county, was completed in January of 2000 and offers its guests a memorable nature experience with plenty of native and migratory birds, an occasional deer and possibly a wild turkey, fox or even a bobcat. You will delight to the nightly, eerie yapping of the coyotes and the supurb star gazing because of no city lights. Guests love going for a walk in the woods at our cabin. We have 300+ acres which offer you plenty of space and privacy. The cabin is on property that has been in the same family since the early 1800s and our guests are encouraged to walk, ride (bring your bike) and enjoy the serenity of the area at their leisure. You are encouraged to bring a cell phone as there is no phone on the premises. The Best Little Cabin in Texas has two bedrooms, a double bed in the Madam's room and a queen in the second bedroom. The cabin has two bathrooms. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room to accommodate two more people. Central air conditioning and heating keep the cabin comfortable in any climate. Our name for the cabin, "The Best Little Cabin in Texas", comes from the Broadway play and movie with a similar name which was inspired by the famous and historic LaGrange's Chicken Ranch. The four poster bed shown above was the bed of the last madam of the Chicken Ranch, Miss Edna. The master bedroom is appropriately decorated in a way that honors the memory of the Chicken Ranch and its inhabitants. (Be sure to check out the license in the bathroom!) The second bedroom, known as "Ode to the Toad", pays humorous homage to our beloved local Endangered Species, the Houston Toad. This toad, about the size of a silver dollar, mates during the late spring and makes one heck of a mating call. May their numbers increase. You will find the construction of our cabin comfortable, attractive and interesting. The cabin's interior walls are of cedar. The exposed pine rafters add an extra charm to the interior. Beautiful vinyl floors throughout the living and kitchen area are a nice addition. In the photo above, the front and back doors were left open to enjoy the gentle breeze that blows through the cabin. The kitchen is fully stocked with spices, paper products, ice trays, tabasco, and coffee. All utensils, dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher, microwave, blender, etc. are all furnished, as well as an outdoor grill. Guests need only bring what they intend to eat and drink. The counter has five stools, and a dining table with chairs provides plenty of seating while eating. A washer and dryer are also included for your convenience. You will want to spend a lot of time on our comfortable full length deck along the back of the cabin. Through the giant pine trees you will be able to look over the Colorado River Valley to Smithville and beyond. Relax on the deck to enjoy the gentle breezes and the sounds of nature at its finest. Have you ever taken a nap in a hammock? Take a nap in our hammock and ponder what lies over life's next hill. You will love it! You might get a glimpse of the Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks that are nesting somewhere nearby. These birds are quite rare for this area. The beautiful Painted Bunting is only one of many birds residing in our woods.
