  • Introduction

    The Cabin on Barton Creek, front view Come to the Texas Hill Country and enjoy the peace, the solitude and the re-creation that a weekend or a week in our cabin promises you.

    Nestled among oaks, walnuts and pecan trees, The Cabin on Barton Creek in Dripping Springs, TX, sits above the banks of Barton Creek.

    Handcrafted from old cedar fence posts, stacked cordwood style, native stone and old barn lumber, our cabin reflects the charm, simplicity and strength of our pioneer heritage.

    You will want to take your coffee out on the porch, sit still to listen to the creek and watch the wildlife. Or, take your book down to the tree swing near the creek. Only the birds will interrupt.

    The cabin welcomes you to just be for a change -- be still, be settled, be quiet, be at peace.

    If your needs are for more activity, we have 2 tennis courts, a pool for swimming, and the creek for fishing and exploring. Comfort within a rustic setting, the Cabin at Barton Creek is the perfect spot for a relaxing retreat!

    Travelers stay here because we offer a lovely place to relax in the Texas Hill Country. Our handcrafted log cabin is rustic,comfortable, quiet, restorative and original. We fashioned it ourselves from old cedar fence posts, rock from around here, old doors and windows and gussied it up with comfortable beds and rocking chairs and lots of books to read when you tire of watching the birds or the stars. Here you can swim in the pool, play tennis or just sit and BE. We are close to winerys, olive orchards, scenic byways, antiques, lots of restaurants, Pedernales Falls, Hamilton Pool, Lake Travis, and Austin.
