Located in Hill Country near the vibrant city of San Antonio, Texas and in between Boerne, Bandera and Helotes, this gorgeous lotus bell tent rental provides one to two guests with a unique glamping getaway. Inside there is a queen-size bed appointed with lovely linens, a table and chairs for dining, and even hot/cold running water at its sink! Inside is an air conditioning/heating unit and two rotating fans to maintain a happy temperature, along with a coffeemaker (with coffee/tea), filtered water, plates, cups, silverwear, towels, etc.

Outside the lotus belle, there are a two comfortable sun loungers with incredible views of the countryside, and a private fire pit & small charcoal grill. Close to the tent is a PRIVATE outdoor bathhouse with on-demand hot/cold shower & optional open views to the hills and a regular toilet. Six pieces of wood are provided). Just outside the tent door is a PRIVATE hot tub/cool soak spa, for relaxing evenings under the stars. NOTE: The temperature of the hot tub is kept cool during hot months.

The property sits on 9.75 beautiful acres and it offers three available rental units (this glamping tent, a tiny house, and a private guest house), which have a lot of space between them to ensure that all guests get the privacy they are looking for. The hosts live on the property, too, which means guests are well taken care of. Each unit has their own private fire pit area and is visually hidden from one another when sitting outdoors.

With this booking, guests get access to a secondary sitting/library area that MULTI-PURPOSES as a massage room (up to two hours maximum/day) here, guests have access to a private a mini-fridge (filled with tasty filtered alkaline water) and a small microwave.

A short hiking trail is available when the weather is good, at guests' own risk. (Not available if rain is expected or within 24 hours after a rain, as the rocks are slippery when wet). The path is steep, and guests must have good shoes to hike it, but those who are so inclined will find it fun to take this short walk down into the valley, following the little red balls (attached to the trees), which concludes at a cool rock "amphitheater." NOTE: This is not a long hike, just a fun way to explore and soak up the natural healing of trees and nature.

Guests' can select an optional artisan breakfast every morning at your choice of 8 a.m., 9:00 a.m. or 10 a.m. for $10pp/day using locally sourced eggs and organics when available. Breakfast is served outdoors on the host's deck, weather permitting, overlooking the valley.

Accommodation rules

  • Check-in: 03:00 PM
  • Check out: 12:00 PM
  • No smoking
  • No parties
  • No events
The hosts are gourmet cooks who can handle most special dietary needs (if requested in advance), and artisan breakfasts are always a specialty.

No outside guests are allowed (1-2 registered guests only) to keep peaceful integrity.

All inside areas are non-smoking.

Shoes are required to come off prior to entering the tent.

Late check-out option is available on weekdays only (not available on Friday-Sunday).

Wireless internet is available outside the property. However, the signal is often not strong enough to give good access inside of the property. The Wi-Fi does, however, work fine for guests when they have individual phones.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Hiking on the property is at the guest's own risk and is very steep and very limited. There is a short walk to a tucked in place that the host's like to call 'Amphitheatre," but beyond that hiking is strictly prohibited on the property (for guest safety) and even this trail is not recommended if it has recently rained, as the path can be very slick and ridden with tree trunks, pricker plants, and slippery leaves.

By reserving through Glamping Hub, guests waive their rights to sue and agree to hold harmless the property, its agents, and owners of any accident, fall, loss, injury, etc. that could potentially occur on this hilltop property that may could likely have a variety of bugs, insects, and/or other animals that share this space as well as any possible water runoff when it rains and tripping elements (rocks, sticks, etc.) and accept full responsibility for these random situations as well as acts of God or the natural surroundings that could potentially harm or injure a guest. If a guest is hurt, they are urged to call 911 in an emergency and/or contact the hosts. They can provide bentonite clay for bug bites or band-aids and ice for injuries if needed.

Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.

There's plenty here for guests to enjoy glamping in Texas. Most people just sit and "chill," enjoy the sunshine, the breeze, the hilltop views, have a glass of wine, enjoy the birds and the clouds, breathe in the fresh air, and photograph the beautiful daily sunsets. In the evening, glampers can enjoy the bright stars and perhaps make a fire in their private fire pit area. The on-site tiny house is also a perfect spot to stay tucked inside while still enjoying views of the outside. It has extra-large panoramic windows on three sides and being tucked under the trees, it feels very private. If guests want to add in a relaxation massage or a chi (energy-rebuilding) session, the host, Karen, is a licensed massage therapist with over 20 years of experience, and there is a special massage room on-site.

For exercise, or just for the fun of it, many guests opt to walk up and down the hills of the neighborhood, and on weekends, guests can even walk to the Timber Ridge Winery for a taste (or buy a bottle to bring back). Some guests bring bikes and/or tubes to enjoy the local rivers and roads.

Want to stay close and dine close? The hosts are happy to recommend the Backyard Bistro in Pipe Creek, which has both indoor and outdoor seating, terrific homemade ice cream, and wonderful daily specials. It can be found in front of the Country Accents Antiques store (these are side by side), which features really unique older items and are also known for their giant potbelly pigs who roam the property and greet the guests. They are happy to have people pet them.

Looking to be active in nature? Nearby outdoor activities include hiking at Bandera’s Hill Country State Natural Area with mountain biking, hiking, bird watching, and/or tubing the river in Bandera (in season. The hosts love to visit Lost Maples State Area to explore nature's finest (except during the busy fall when leaves change color and they are TOO busy)! They also really enjoy the Bandera historical horseback rides (in Bandera) and exploring Cave without a Name in Bandera.

Our closest town of Boerne (pronounced BUR-KNEE), is an eclectic mix of sophistication and old world German historical charm and features delicious casual and high-end restaurants, boutique stores, art galleries, and antiques. It has a lovely walking tour of their outdoor (rotating) sculptures and many great restaurants to choose from. If guests have never been, the hosts highly recommend the Boerne Wine Bar and/or their personal favorite, Dodging Duck Brewhouse (a laid-back atmosphere, good food as well as good beer, sometimes music). Cypress Grill is where they go to celebrate special events, and Bear Moon Bakery has lovely treats guests can eat there or bring back.

The other sister city is Bandera, the self-proclaimed "Cowboy Capital of the World," which has boot-scootin' live music almost daily, fun western-themed shopping (Gunslinger's is Karen's FAVORITE store), traditional Texas Fare restaurants Brick;s and OST), lots of bars, and saloons, and Love's Antiques and Collectables Mall (with the hosts' favorite Hipple Smoothie & Juice Bar behind it).

Joshua Creek Ranch in Boerne offers day trip fly fishing, skeet shooting, kayaking, and hunting trips. Cave Without a Name is a favorite, privately-owned cave that we love to send people to. When water on the Medina River is up and flowing, the hosts have tubes guests can borrow to splash in the cool water or friends who have access to a private park and will take guests on guided tubing, birding, hikes along the river. Paddleboarding is available at Boerne City Park. (Extra fees apply for most activities).

Glampers can enjoy scenic drives in the surrounding area to locations including San Antonio, Austin, New Braunfels, Comfort, or Fredericksburg. This area is home to many vineyards, breweries, and a cool distillery in Comfort, Texas, if guests like that sort of thing. New Braunfels has a unique olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting room (Greune Olive) for the discriminating foodie.
