Location + Surroundings
Cat Spring is a community in southeastern Texas, located in Austin County and roughly one hour west of Houston, which is the largest city in all of Texas. In the foothills of Hill Country, this glamping property is a 650-acre working ranch and bed and breakfast filled with old oak trees, lakes, ponds, and wildlife. The hosts of this property also have horses, Angus cattle, llamas, miniature donkeys, peacocks, American bison, Black Buck antelopes, Fallow deer, and of course, their pet dogs.
The Cat Spring area has historically significant Texan attractions, such as the Stephen F. Austin State University and Washington-on-the-Brazos State Parks. There are many nearby communities that will offer glampers a change of scenery with their cultural sites, dining establishments, and boutique and antique shops, such as Bellville, Sealy, Columbus, New Ulm, Eagle Lake, Richmond, Rosenberg, Round Top, Warrenton, Shelby, Brenham, Chappell Hill, and Winedale.
The glamping site is also only an hour and 30 minutes from Austin, the state capital, and less than three hours from San Antonio, home of The Alamo. Read More

It is $79 per guest, and we offer children's rides by lead line for $29 per child.
Archery is available for $35 per person, and bicycle rentals are also available for $35 per person per day.
