Very Unique
Many of you will be excited to learn that included free with your rental of Hangar House, for two or more night's, is a 15-20 minute scenic airplane ride. Bill, my husband, flies a Zenith airplane and, weather permitting, would love to show you our Canyon from the air!
Utopia is as Unique as it's name. Your are minutes from Texas's #1 state park... We have a restaurant that the TV show Treehouse Builders built a treehouse dining room for... We also have a couple of great concession trailers... And you may get to ride in the same airplane as Robert Duvall in his movie "Seven Days in Utopia". More useful information is provided in your room.
  • Spent the week at Hangar House, and already missing it. Large modern space that serves as a great base for exploring the area. Right on a grass airstrip providing a great vista of the surrounding hills. The house has greaat features and strong wifi to make the stay comfortable for anyone.

  • Still one of our favorite places when we're ready for a break from the city.

  • Our stay at Lanell’s place was so great! The apartment was super clean and had everything we could possibly need for a weekend away. The apartment is really unique & we loved the aviation theme & all the thoughtful touches. Lanell & her husband met us when we arrived, and we were treated to a tour of the canyon by air, which was pretty magical. The location is so quiet & peaceful. It about equidistant from Lost Maples andGarner State Park, where we enjoyed great hiking. We would definitely stay here again-highly recommended!

    Heather2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay. Good location. Would definitely return again.

    Tim2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Hanger House was incredible. The location was perfect. The flight theme for the rental matched perfectly to the actual hangar and runway right outside our front door!!! Lanell and Bill were gracious, friendly hosts. The Hangar House was sparkling clean!!! The stars in the sky were incredibly bright and we could look out into the Milky Way...breathtaking!!! A perfect weekend and we will be back!!!

    Bob2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent host and a wonderful place. Highly recommended as a place to relax. Great for dogs, too.

    Robert2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Hangar House felt like home! It was so relaxing and refreshing to get away from the hustle and bustle. The cornbread and beans provided upon arrival were delicious and such a welcoming treat. We hiked Garner state park, cooked on the grill, made s’mores, enjoyed some downtime around the fire pit, and watched an awesome sunset! We would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Kelly2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The hanger House was an awesome getaway from everything. Lanell was an amazing hoset who went out of his way to help us when our vehicle caught a nail in our tire on our way to Garner State Park. We can't thank him enough for helping us out and taking us to get it repaired. The hanger House itself was spectacular filled with fun airplane decorations throughout the house. We will definitely be back again hopefully with better weather get a airplane/helicopter ride in.

  • Tracy is a great host. We got a little lost and called her late at night for directions. She stayed on the phone with us and guided us to the cabin. The back porch is a great place for watching birds and listening to the creek bubbling past. The cabin itself is cute and welcoming. Tracy stocked it with plenty of towels, cooking-ware, dishes, dish towels, and basics such as salt, & pepper, sugar, cooking oil, and cleaning supplies. We met her as we were leaving and she is a very friendly person.

    Carol2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great view from the back porch, large bbq and nice fire ring by the river. Good location for visiting Lost Maples and Garner S.P..

    Susan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Cozy and unique little cabin on the river. Really cool back patio area!! Tracy was extremely accommodating and polite. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you again for everything Tracy!! Andrew H

    Andrew2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tracy’s place was exactly what we needed, perfect for our trip to Utopia.

    Chris And Roxann2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin wasn't hard to find. There's plenty of room for two people and we slept great the entire trip. The shower is very small (like cabins we've stayed at before). The river behind the house was the our favorite part. I had tea on the back porch every morning, and watched the birds, listened to the river. We spent several hours one afternoon splashing around in the river and enjoying being outside. Garner State Park is only 20 mins away, and totally worth a visit.

    Nicole2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a relaxing weekend. I surprised by husband and my fur babies for a weekend getaway. The cabin was clean and very cozy. We enjoyed food at the cozy and warm back porch, continued with a warm evening with fire under the stars. Would most definitely come back! Hosts were very quick responders and attentive to anything needed. If you don't mind a few cars driving by once in a while, a fire pit and great back yards by the river... Then this is the place for you.

    Erwin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy place, excellent host!

    Travis2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is adorable! We had such a great stay with our 2 adult children, 2 dogs, nephew, and 10 year old. The kids loved the loft. Location is walking distance to town and Utopia park (great playground and beautiful scenery) and only 15 minutes from Garner State Park. View from front porch is hills and back porch is creek, wildlife, and amazing sunsets. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the porches and taking it all in. Stargazing and s’mores around the fire pit was the perfect ending to our trip. We enjoyed “getting away” without being too far away and spending family together. Lost Maples cafe was great! Thanks for everything, Tracy!

    Just four miles south of Lost Maples State Natural Area, big tooth maples surround the Orchard Inn, providing shade and privacy, even though our home is nearby. Across the road, our “beach” offers privacy and a natural view of the Sabinal River. Our recent remodel has focused on an authentic hill country character. Progressive owners, our mantra is "make yourselves at home!" In business since 1994, we are just real people accomodating real people. How does that sound?
    We just took out the carpet and put in wood floors and they are gorgeous! The decor is Early American with a few of John's handcrafted pieces out of local pecan and mesquite. We trust our guests to treat the property gently and do not charge a cleaning fee!
    The Orchard Inn is situated on the west side of Hwy 187. The Sabinal River is on the east side and is a short walk of 300 yards, so you will have the river all to yourself! There is a small grocery store nearby and also one in Utopia, 11 miles to the south. However, if you seek more than the basics, you should shop before you get here. Utopia does not sell alcohol.
  • My boyfriend and I were looking to spend a weekend outside of the hustle and bustle of the city and the Orchard Inn was just what we were looking for! Conveniently located near Lost Maples and within 30 minutes of Garner State Park, it is an unbeatable location. The cottage itself is very cozy and homey, with a full set of cookware and coffee maker in the kitchen and towels/shampoo for the bathroom. Lynn and John were very responsive to our questions and gave us great recommendations for hiking in Lost Maples and where to eat nearby! We definitely will stay with them again when we return to the Hill Country!

    Sarah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lynn was a great host!! She gave us great resturants recommendations. The cabin was perfect for our needs! It was only 4 miles from Lost Maples where we spent most of our time. It was a great getaway!!

    Terra2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lynn's house was the perfect weekend getaway for our family! We enjoyed the friendly welcome and the quiet place to relax together. The proximity to Lost Maples also made for a fun day of hiking.

    Catherine2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place was nice, clean and cozy

    Holly2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The location is amazing, 5 miles from Lost Maples park. The cabin was spacious, clean, had good WiFi, was quiet, had a washer and drier, games, a comfortable bed, and a decent kitchen, and the host was easily/quickly reachable via the Airbnb app with local advice, both before and during the visit. We really enjoyed our stay! Keep in mind that cell service in the area is spotty, so make sure you have your directions clear before you go! The driveway is less than a tenth of a mile from the Lost Maples Country Store at the corner of County Roads 337 & 187.

    Russell2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Orchard Inn! Lynn was a quick responder to our questions, and we were happy to be so very close to Lost Maples. (Get a day pass online! It doesn’t cost extra, and it guarantees you can see the pretty leaves!) We had a cozy evening in after hiking as the temperatures dropped and used the time to play board games and reflect on our first year of marriage/plan for the future. (We got ingredients for a grilled cheese/tomato soup dinner from the general store in Utopia.) Highly recommend both restaurants in Utopia! So good! Orchard Inn is simple in the best way, with beautiful woodwork throughout. I love the layout of the house; it has a very open floorplan and plenty of space. It also stayed warm in the freezing weather. :) Worth noting that Orchard Inn is /south/ of Lost Maples. Google may tell you otherwise, and service is spotty (putting it nicely), so it might be good to check with Lynn before you head out to make sure you understand the directions. She is super responsive and hospitable, so even if google maps does betray you—you are in good hands.

    Melody2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Orchard Inn was so great! It is only 5 minutes from Lost Maples, so the location was very convenient and Lynn was such a great host. If you’re ever looking for time away, I highly recommend staying at the Orchard Inn and taking in everything Vanderpool has to offer

    Christian2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute and quaint!! Tons of trees just far enough off the beaten path. But close to the river and the park!! Loved every minute!!

    This quaint little cowboy cottage is perfect for two people. It was originally our son's place but he is married with a baby, so bigger they must build. We are happy to offer this little piece of our heaven for you to enjoy, but please leave your pets at home. No pets allowed. Thank you for respecting our short and simple house rules.
    2 night minimum under most circumstances. 3 night minimum on major holidays. One-night stays occasionally accepted in the off-season. Cell Service: ATT is most reliable. TMobile has one tower nearby. Most others have no service here.
    We are located just a short 1.5 miles outside of Utopia. We are nestled right in the middle of two great parks less than 20 miles away. Lost Maples State Park located north of town and Garner State Park located West of town. We have a famous cafe that was featured in the movie Seven Days in Utopia that you'll have to try out. Especially their homemade pies.
  • Tracy and Duane's cabin is peaceful and adorable. The pictures don't do it justice. It was perfect landing spot for a combined Valentine's Day weekend and local wedding. Tracy communicated before and through out our stay to make sure we had everything we needed but we had complete privacy. She thoughtfully included some chocolate covered strawberries to help us celebrate Valentine's Day. The shower had plenty of hot water for two showers and great water pressure. The bathroom was very spacious with ample plugs, towels, and storage space. There was even a makeup mirror installed. In the anteroom of the bathroom area, Tracy has thoughtfully placed anything you may have forgotten from razors to phone chargers. The bedroom was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Extra pillow options and extra blankets were in the large walk-in closet where we stored our bags and hung up clothes to make more space. There is a full length mirror in the bedroom. In February with temperatures dropping into the 40s at night we did not need the space heaters which Tracy and Duane provide just in case, the wall heater worked just fine. The bedroom had lots of plugs, lighting options, and a ceiling fan (and living). Entry to the property was easy but you can close the fence. There is even a grill with supplies on the front porch if you want to cook out. At night with the porch lights off you can see Milky Way in the sky and hear the coyotes, it was truly peaceful and very comfortable. This felt more like a home than most airbnbs I've been in and the amount of thoughtfulness made it seem more like staying with friends. I would highly recommend staying here if you're in the area.

    Alisa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tracy was such a fantastic host & this stay was absolutely perfect for my weekend getaway. The pictures really don't do this cute little cabin justice! It's cozy, welcoming, the bed was SO comfortable & the Cabin offered everything I was looking for --from WiFi to fresh ground coffee left kindly by the host :D If I ever plan a trip back to Utopia I will be booking this gem!

    Karin2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Lil Cowboy Cabin on the Corner is by far the best Airbnb my daughter and I have stayed at. Host, Tracy, has thought of everything to make one’s stay exceptional, from fresh baked cookies, fresh ground coffee, and special touches, (too many to note them all) throughout the cabin. Prompt and helpful responses were received to any questions we had. If you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing get away in a charming setting, this place will fulfill all of your expectations.

    Theresa2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! My husband and I had such a good time. It was quiet and comfortable and close to state parks!

    Savannah2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was such an amazing cabin stay! From the minute we arrived, you could just feel the comfort and relaxation surround you. Immaculately clean and stocked with everything you could need! The bed and couch were so comfy also! We saw at least a dozen deer from the front porch -- and they were so close! Rocking chairs to enjoy the stars at night from and a hammock to nap in. We will def be coming back to this cabin when in the Hill Country. Thanks for a perfect stay!

    Kelly2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I have stayed at Tracy's multiple times and will keep coming back. She has gone out of her way to make her Cowboy cabin an inviting home away from home.

    John2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Truly the best getaway we could have hoped for out in Utopia. The cabin is packed with amenities, we wanted for nothing. Everything matched the distinctive rustic ambience. It was easy to relax there, a rare feeling for me. So charming, I’m very grateful.

    Karen2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I spent two nights at the Tracy and Duane's Lil' Cowboy Cabin in late November. We love that part of the Texas hill country and we had hoped for the opportunity to visit some of the beautiful parks in the area such as Lost Maples State Natural Area and Garner State Park (each only 16 miles away), but the weather was cool and damp for the most part. Never-the-less, we MUCH enjoyed our stay at the cabin anyway and spent a great and restful time together... something we needed. We don't regret our trip at all. The cabin was very well equipped with lots of amenities and Tracy's personal touches (even unexpected cookies!), and it was a very comfortable place to hang out together! Cabin access was easy and Tracy was easy to get ahold of if we needed her... and always very kind. The cabin grounds are not big but there are hammocks under the oak trees and nice porch equipped with a gas grill where one can relax and watch birds and wildlife in the yard and wooded fields across the fence. We saw LOTS of deer, especially in the mornings and evenings! Strength of phone signal was somewhat limited from time to time inside the cabin itself (true in general in much of the hill country) but the cabin has great Wi-Fi access. We also enjoyed going into Utopia (short drive) and eating Lost Maples Café, a well known place in the area. Hopefully there will be a "next time" at the cabin for us when we can also try out some of the other places in the area that Tracy recommends!

  • A wonderful, cosy cabin and a great place to birdwatch.

    Laura2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if you are hiking garner and lost maples, very clean and convenient

    Phil2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kat's cabin is a must stay, she is very nice and accommodating. The location is perfect. Nothing like waking up to the view of the hill country. The jacuzzi is perfect, so is the fire pit and bbq pit for a quick bbq. The cabin is nicely stocked. Looking forward to staying there again soon.

    Pedro2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • From the very start we knew that we have to respect the place and treat it as our own. Care instructions were very detailed as if the host anticipated all we need during the stay making the experience a very pleasant one. The place itself is very private and relaxing. The cabin, as per my 2 teenager girls, is charming. We plan to go back.

    Crescelyn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed how quiet it was and sitting on the front and back porches was so peaceful. Watching the birds from the back porch and drinking our morning coffee was my favorite part of our stay.

    Jill2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Kat's place is really nice and peaceful. She is hospitable and respond promptly. Everithing is super clean

    Miriam2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

    * StarLight Cabin sits on a peaceful ridge in the Texas Hill Country. It's located on a "no-thru-traffic" county road west of Utopia on the way to Garner State Park. ** View the brightest Milky Way skies between San Antone & Terlingua. *** Most nights, besides the singing of cicada or the call of a coyote, the only sounds to be heard is the calling of dove to their mates. **** Enjoy a few nights in this Hill Country Paradise on Tomahawk Ridge Road in Utopia Texas.
    StarLight Cabin: * Located on quite low traffic Tomahawk Ridge Rd/PR 3900 (a private road with no-thru-traffic or public access.) ** Brilliant Milky Way and stars are inherent to the night skies here. You won't even see the lights of Utopia and will seldom see more than 2-3 distant lights from the cabin patio. *** Some of the best year-round bird watching in the USA. This is one of the best natural habitats for Dove nesting and many other bird species. **** We may not be plush and fancy, but it's a quite and peaceful little space that's perfect for a big dose of Rest & Relaxation. ***** For indoor entertainment, there is a 32" television for DVD use only. (Please bring your own movies.) You can also purchase the Robert Duvall movie filmed here, "Seven Days In Utopia" at The Lost Maples Cafe.) ****** Because of past & potential damage to flooring, carpeting, upholstery, and interior structure, etc., we do not allow indoor pets. ******* For location identification, note the GPS satellite maps showing the "Tomahawk" shape of the road encircling the property. The GPS address at our gate entrance (Tomahawk Ridge Rd/PR 3900) is "3164 CR 357". ******** Environmentally Conscious: We are an pesticide and herbicide free habitation and use only Diatomaceous Earth for pest control.
    StarLight Cabin and Ride-Away is in the midst of the best motorcycle routes in Texas. We are centrally located and the perfect option for motorcycle enthusiasts who want to take their time exploring the greatest bike routes in Texas. * One of the most beautiful scenery routes in Texas: (1) Leave StarLight Cabin and motor West on Hwy 1050 to Hwy 83 at Garner State Park; (2) travel North on Hwy 83 to Leakey; (3) take Hwy 337 East to Vanderpool; (4) turn back South on Hwy 187 to Utopia and StarLight Cabin. (This very scenic route is approx. 51 miles long.) We are also close to many different outdoor activities for the whole family in any direction you choose: * Mid-way between Garner State Park (Hwy 1050 West) and Lost Maples Natural Area (Hwy 187 North). It is about 16 miles to both. ** 10 minutes to the Golf Links in Utopia on 187 South. *** 5 minutes from Utopia Park where guests can enjoy swimming, picnicking, fishing, rodeos, baseball and more. **** The beautiful scenery routes described above are of course not limited to motorcyclist. ***** The charm of this area and its ambience is its quiet solitude and lack of night light pollution. Noise and outside lights can disturb and ruin this for everyone for miles around. Therefore, except in an emergency, absolutely no excessive noise and outside lights after 10 PM.
  • Very clean and quiet. Very nice view of the sunset and the surrounding area from the back patio. Great location between GSP and LMS.

    Mark2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Was a great day, beautiful place nice views. I even forgot something and the owner was kind enough to mail it to me. I rate this place five stars all the way around. Was very nice place to stay.

    Jason2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Starlight Cabin is a perfect quiet getaway. It is clean, cozy and well maintained.

    Joni2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Starlight Cabin was very peaceful, relaxing, and THE VIEW is amazing! We spent a lot of our time out on the patio! We really enjoyed relaxing and looking at the beautiful view! I especially loved that the cabin had a sliding glass door so you could see the view from inside the cabin! We spent one lovely evening grilling chicken and veggies and sitting around the fire relaxing. Starlight Cabin couldn’t have a more perfect name, as the night sky there is incredible! It is the perfect place for stargazing! The inside of the cabin was clean and had the basics that you would need for the most part. If you’re planning on grilling, make sure you bring some grilling tongs because there aren’t any there and it makes it difficult to turn your food over without them because it’s so hot. The only other thing worth mentioning is that if you’re on the taller side (5’9”+) both of the beds are part of a bunk bed and they have railing as a headboard and footboard and it feels cramped. I’m 5’9” and my husband is 6’3”, and neither one of us were super comfortable in the bed due to the railing preventing us from fully stretching out. I’m guessing that the space would be perfect for people about 5’8” and under! The mattresses were a nice, comfortable memory foam, so the only issue was our height. Overall, the cabin was nice and clean and comfortable! The location is perfect, and only like a 15-20 minute drive from Garner state park, and about 30-35 minutes from tubing in Concan! There’s also a nice river park only 5-10minutes away in Utopia, but it costs $10/person for day use (for non-locals) which we didn’t realize until we got there. We ended up just going to Garner since we have a State Park Pass.. (The river park in Utopia would be GREAT for kids though! ..it had a super fun and unique playground, and bathrooms! Ben was a wonderful host and went above and beyond our expectations! We were arriving around midnight our first night there, and Ben explained exactly how to get there, and even offered to drive into town (at midnight!) to meet us and lead us there! He is very responsive to any questions and was super helpful. We had an issue during our stay, and he went above and beyond to fix the problem! We really loved our stay, and hope to come back someday! Thank you Ben! :D

    Jessica2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and clean cabin the pictures don’t show how nice and spacious the cabin actually is. Very helpful and nice host. Will definitely try and come back for another vacation some time in the future.

  • This place was perfect. We had 4 adults and the space worked well. You can sleep more people, but it might get tight. We stayed here for a weekend trip to float the river, and we couldn't have been happier!

    Madeline2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful getaway from the city. Very clean and cozy. I would recommend this place if going to Garner State Park the drive is very manageable. No wifi or tv and that is a good thing if you are looking to disconnect from the world. Would definitely stay again.

    Claudia2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I booked the Starlight Cabin last minute for a quick vacation to hang out on the river and hike at Lost Maples. It was a perfect location to do both. Additionally, the park down the street was perfect for swimming and only 10 minutes (or less) from the cabin. The cabin felt super private and quiet. Everything was clean, and there was not one bug inside or around the cabin. We enjoy cooking most of our own meals, so it was nice having a fridge and stove. There was enough cookware to manage (we always bring our own just in case). If you're planning on making big family meals you might want to bring a large skillet or pot with a lid and some cooking utensils. There were plenty enough plates, cups and silverware to handle 4-6 people. If you want to eat out, Lost Maples Cafe down the road had great and inexpensive lunch options. Breakfast was okay, but not as great as lunch. Ben was very responsive to our messages and friendly on the phone. We didn't have any issues to deal with, but I'm sure he would have addressed them quickly if we did. Overall, everything was great. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

  • Mark's ranch is a wonderful getaway: beautiful landscape, walking trails, wildlife, and starry skies. The house was sparkling clean and equipped with everything that we needed to self-cater. We felt comfortable, well taken care of, and safe. There are lots of activities to do in the hill country nearby, but we didn't see any reason to leave the peace of the ranch on our short stay. This place would make a perfect writer's retreat.

    Kelli2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to get away and enjoy quiet surroundings. Close to many great places to hike!

    Robyn2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful, country setting. Enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and star gazing. Beautiful hiking options close by. Dog friendly. Our dog is old, so she struggled a little bit getting up the stairwell to the cottage, but she did ok. Very clean and spacious. Hosts are very gracious and personable. Closest town is Utopia. Ate at Lost Maples Cafe a few times. We enjoyed our stay!

    Cheryl2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Greeted by Mark and Nancy who are warm welcoming was a wonderful start of our trip. Another plus, the cottage is more updated and larger than pictured. Our first night we were rained in and we spent time playing games that are provided on a shelf in the cottage. Early morning coffee outside with freely roaming horses and deer was peacefully beautiful and pure serenity for the soul. The large property is private and secluded. This is a place I will love to come back and visit.

    Fallon2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Nancy's cottage was a great home with amazing views. If you are visiting this area, I would highly recommend this place.

The vineyard is nestled in a bowl-shaped valley with tall wooded hills surrounding you providing great views and sunsets. Well appointed and comfortable villa with lots of attention to detail.

  • This place was just perfect. Totally out of the way. We did not even have signal (Verizon) and it was pretty refreshing. There is no residual light or noise so when you go out at night and look up it is a completely different sky than I was used to. The views are fantastic and the hiking at Lost Maples nearby was great. We had a great dinner cooked over the fire pit. There aren't enough great things to say.

  • Staying at the cabin was definitely the unplug experience that my wife and I needed for the weekend (no cell service thankfully). All that we both needed was a cozy space, a mellow fire in the fireplace, and a couple good books to read. Some wine from the local winery was good as well. Getting to and from the cabin is also such a gorgeous drive winding through this portion of the Texas Hill Country.

    Jeremy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Though the photos on the listing are cute, they just don't do justice to how adorable this cabin is. More spacious than we had expected, we immediately felt right at home enjoying all of the cute decor, the back porch overlooking the property and...indulging in the pumpkin bread our hostess left for us! We brought a couple of DVDs to play in the evenings, but there were numerous ones to choose from at the cabin. Even board games and cards! The bathroom was roomy and clean, too. The cabins are perfectly located near Lost Maples State Natural Area, and easy driving distance to Utopia, where there's an adorable cafe. After a long day of hiking, we made s'mores by the fire pit and leaned back to enjoy the amazing starlit sky. What a wonderful getaway!

    Kathleen2019-11-22T00:00:00Z

    The perfect base camp for hiking Lost Maples and other area parks year round! End of road privacy, views that go on forever and private walking trails make this the perfect getaway. The former potter's studio offers a large porch with stunning views of sunrise, moon rise, the Milky Way, and the entire valley. The modern eclectic decor, comfortable furnishings, efficient kitchen, and luxury linens will make you feel as if you're in your home away from home.
    Bird watching is one of our favorite pastimes, as there are dozens of species that make their homes here or migrate through, including two endangered species. Hikes on the many trails on the 20 acre property will reveal a varied ecosystem that is astoundingly biodiverse. But please, take only memories (and photos) and leave only footprints. The home has breathtaking views of the Little Creek drainage, Sabinal Canyon, and surrounding hills, stunning in any season and any weather. Stargazing is great (think Milky Way), the sunrise and moon rise are fantastic viewed from the great room or the porch. The interior of the house is newly remodeled. It was a potter's studio in a prior existence, so has been completely reworked and refreshed, and is clean and bright, with memory foam hybrid mattresses, linen and cotton bed linens, down blankets, fresh new towels, and excellent cooking utensils and dinnerware. We have designed the interior of the home for your comfort and pleasure. We hope you enjoy staying here as much as we have enjoyed creating the space.
    Extremely private--we are the last place on the road. The area is heavily wooded and sparsely settled. Nearby attractions include Lost Maples State Natural Area, Hill Country State Natural Area, Garner State Park, and the Three Twisted Sisters (FM335, FM336, FM337). Area towns such as Leakey, Uvalde, Bandera, Medina, Comfort, Kerrville, Ingram, and Fredericksburg are just an easy day trip away and offer antique shopping, restaurants, and entertainment of all kinds. Wineries abound in the hill country, and the nearest is less than 15 miles away.
  • Outstanding home! One of the best Airbnb's we have stayed in. Gorgeous home with spectacular views!

    Faryn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay! Close to Lost Maples and Utopia. The views are amazing (airbnb is on top of a hill). The space was great, lots a great books to read in a nice relaxing environment. The road to get there is unpaved so just be sure to drive safe and slowly.

    Margaret2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a quiet getaway, this is your place! Unbelievable view of the sunrise from the back patio. Short drive to Lost Maples State Park for some really fun and relaxing hiking. And it's all dog friendly!

    Travis2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at your property was wonderful. From the start the host was responsive to questions, and the provided detailed instructions on getting to and around the place took the stress away from traveling and allowed us to focus on enjoying our visit. The location was amazing and provided a private space with amazing views. The house was clean and cozy with everything we needed during our stay. We found the WiFi hit or miss which the host had informed us of with future upgrades to make things more reliable, while our At&t phones and had steady service during our visit for both voice and data. This place is a must stay and we are hoping to be able to visit again soon.

    William2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This studio was such a surprisingly perfect place for a girls’ weekend away from the city! It was cozy and scenic, perfect for cooking a great meal with some wine after a long day of hiking! We spent the evenings watch the changing colors of the sunset while we sat on the comfy couches, covered in soft blankets, and drinking hot tea or chocolate! And then we woke up in the morning for the sunrise all over again! It was peaceful and we got great sleep on the super comfy beds. There were so many thoughtful touches, from extra toothbrushes if you forgot yours, to fragrant Italian soaps in the bath, to really stylish decor. It was a great location for visiting Lost Maples and Garner State Park. Mary was great at communicating special instructions and was gracious enough to allow us to arrive early! HIGHLY RECOMMEND you stay at the Moonrise Studio!

  • When we booked our stay, we didn’t know what to expect. It far outweighed our expectations. The house is beautiful and the views from the house are amazing. You can see the sunrise and the sunset from the large balcony. The house was beautifully decorated and cozy. It is very clean. The king bed in the loft is very comfortable. You can’t go wrong by booking this home. We can’t wait to go back!

  • Great, stylish place with amazing views. Very peaceful!

  • My husband and I, along with our dogs, stayed at Moonrise Studio over the holiday break. Not only was the view a dream but the accommodations were just as described and uniquely charming. Mary and her husband, Shreve were wonderful hosts who responded quickly to all questions and/or concerns that we had. The onsite walking trails were just as brilliant as the State Parks nearby. There is no better place to see a sunrise than at Moonrise Studio in Utopia.

    Private room and bath upstairs in the B&B.
    2 bedrooms with king bed and each has private bath. 1 master bedroom with king bed, and large private bathroom with jetted tub and walk in shower. All rooms are upstairs in our home in the Texas Hill Country. We are 90 mi. NW San Antonio. 20 min. from Garner State Park and 10 min. from Lost Maples State Park a favorite destination for leaf peepers and hikers. Our B&B is not for children under the age of 12. Families should look at our river house, River Haven. Each of the smaller rooms are $100 per night. The larger suite is $125. We do a full breakfast usually around 8:30 a.m. but later if you want to sleep in. Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Boerne, Comfort are all close by and great for shopping. If you want to tube the Frio there's Happy Hollow. They will rent you a tube and then transport you to a jump in spot and you'll float through beautiful cypress trees back to the starting point. You can do that as many times as you want and if you're lucky the tamale man will be set up at Happy Hollow for a yummy break. Utopia has a great golf course that was the setting for one of Robert Duvall's movies, 7 Days in Utopia, Golf's Sacred Journey.
    We are on 2 acres, so our neighbors aren't close. The Sabinal River, when it is running, is a short walk from our B&B. Sitting in the river with a cold drink is heaven. We have a family vacation rental with a small access to the Sabinal River.
  • Great value, friendly, comfortable. We hope to come back.

  • Peggy has a beautiful home and their courtesy and friendliness was greatly appreciated. I stayed in a very clean and nicely appointed room with a very comfortable bed and hot, hot shower. Thanks Peggy!

  • Peggy and Ron are the kindest hosts you could ever meet! Their place is beautiful and sparkling clean, with all the amenities you could possibly need for a stay. The location is very conveniently located close to Lost Maples and Garner State Park, and Utopia itself has a pretty park with a river flowing right through it. Our room had very comfortable bedding, space to unpack our belongings, and the bathroom was stocked with all the basics. The sitting area upstairs was adorable, with a rocking chair and a puzzle that guests are invited to help build. Peggy also had a Keurig set up, as well as a mini fridge with some drinks. Ron built a toasty fire outside for us to relax by, and Peggy cooked up a delicious breakfast for us before we headed out for the day. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

    Hira2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    Igor2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This a fantastic spot! Beautiful location, centrally located to Lost Maples, Garner, Rio Frio, that is quiet and peaceful at the end of the day. Peggy and Ron are absolutely lovely, and the room is fantastic. This was our second time staying here, and we will be back again. If you plan on visiting the area, and are looking for a comfortable place that is convenient, but away from the hubub of Concan, etc, this is the perfect place for you.

Nice BBQ pit was supplied by the hosts and we made good use of it during our stay. The River was clear and cool which was needed on the hot August weekend we visited Utopia. We look forward to visiting again!

  • We loved our trip to the blue house! It was very clean and beautifully decorated. This place has such a positive and calming energy and the ranch surrounding it is peaceful and fun to explore. We even had one of the horses accompany us on a hike! There is so much to do around the ranch, including Lost Maples State Park, Garner and more. We didn’t have time for it all, but honestly we could have spent the whole time at the house! We had dinner on the back deck every night and enjoyed the vinyl collection. Definitely would loved to have stayed longer! I can imagine this area is amazing when the fall colors are out. Thanks to Jessica for being such a gracious host.

Inside there are over 100 full-body animal mounts positioned in hand-painted dioramas portraying their natural habitats. An international collection of art pieces are displayed in the museum. ****************** Lost Maples State Natural Area: A large, pristine area of beautiful hills and canyons on the upper Sabinal River in the Edwards Plateau Region of Texas. It is designated a Natural Area, rather than a State Park, which means the primary focus is the maintenance and protection of the property's natural state ****************** Garner State Park: A great place to visit for a swim or hike, or to enjoy a relaxing weekend. With 2.9 miles of Frio River winding through 1,774 acres of scenic Hill Country terrain, the park offers lots to see and do. Swim in the Frio River or float its waters on an inner tube, operate a paddle boat, and hike 16 miles of scenic trails. You can also camp, study nature, picnic, canoe, fish, play miniature golf, geocache and ride bikes. And, of course, you can dance. Take a virtual tour with our Interactive Trails Map.

Bandera was the mecca for early cowboys and still holds the cowboy traditions in daily activities. ****************** Frio River: A beautiful river that winds through the heart of the Texas Hill Country, running shallow and crystal clear with spring-fed waters. When you go for a dip in the Frio, you’ll love the pretty views overhead, including the tall limestone bluffs, big cypress trees, and stunning birds. If you’re looking for a great place to fish, canoe, kayak or tube, this river’s for you. ****************** Bandera 11th Cowboy Bar: If you are looking to enjoy some great live music with dancing then put on your travel plans to spend an evening at the 11th Cowboy Bar. It’s a guaranteed fun time with great people and even better music.

    Wooden beams and cathedral ceilings lend a rustic atmosphere to this woodsy cabin, yet luxury linens and well appointed amenities let you know that this cabin is designed with your comfort in mind. Life at the cabin is unhindered by cell phones, TVs and computers, although WiFi can be found a few miles up the road at the Lost Maples Country Store or at many of the local businesses. This is time for each other and getting back to basics. Time to just "be" and focus on what is truly important.
    Surrounded by trees and excellent views of the mountains make the Firefly a special place to unwind and relax. Quiet mornings on the porch with a cup of coffee, birds at the feeder, sun rising over the mountains, you know it's going to be a good day to have a good day! Later on take a nap on the swing bed, roast marshmallows at your private fire pit and enjoy a s'more, or two, while observing the dark skies filled with billions of stars. Only 7 miles from Lost Maples State Natural Area, Firefly is in close proximity to all activities in the Lost Maples Region, Sabinal Canyon and Frio Canyon areas.
    Located on FM 337 between Vanderpool and Leakey in an area known as the 'Swiss Alps of Texas', the cabin is less than 10 miles from Lost Maples State Natural Area and Lost Maples Winery at Polvadeau Vineyards, and 20 miles from Garner State Park. The closest river access is 10 miles to the Frio River and 15 miles to the Utopia City Park. With tall, dense, mature stands of Ashe juniper mixed with Texas Oaks and Lacey Oaks along the steep-sided canyons, this stretch of RR337 has been designated as one of the most popular scenic highways in Texas.
  • I had a very peaceful, soul refreshing time at this very quiet and cozy cabin. The stargazing was amazing! It was the perfect secluded getaway that I was seeking! Great hospitality too! Jeralyn was very attentive and addressed any questions or issues in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend the cabin and hope to visit again in the future!

  • The property is absolutely stunning. We really enjoyed walking a bit in the evenings and experiencing the breathtaking views. The house was very clean and roomy! The front porch was perfect for sitting out and watching the sun go down. We greatly enjoyed the fireplace it was very cozy during the chilly evenings. The hosts were great and responded to all my questions. We had an excellent time!

    Ashley2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the property was outstanding! There’s a really nice bluff across the valley that really lit up nicely at sunset. The house was clean, comfortable, and had all the basics needed for a trip. The kitchen had enough pots and pans to cook most anything. We met the owner while we were there and he was very nice. We would be happy to stay again!

    Chris2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had a great time! It was a nice getaway for us. The porch was my favorite place. Cool in the morning and trees galore. Even apples growing on one tree! We barbecued one evening, went and rode the river the next day, relaxed the next day and ate at the OST restaurant in Medina. Amazing food! We were not ready to leave. Lol

    Wendy2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
