Charming Tiny House for Two in Texas Hill Country with Views and PrivacyPipe Creek, Texas (United States) view map
Description of Glamping Units
Set in the Texas Hill Country, this charming, hand-crafted tiny house with panoramic windows makes for the perfect getaway for two. Inside, this light and bright tiny house features an open layout, a kitchen with a butcher block table, and chairs for two. The bedroom and living area offers windows to watch the sun go down, and climate-controlled air conditioning and heating, or guests can open the big, screened windows to let the breeze flow through.
Guests can expect a comfortable queen-size bed, plush linens, and space for storage underneath. Its private bathroom offers a 36-inch shower, a designer sink, a Lavlo dry-flush toilet, and is beautiful as well as functional. The kitchen is set with a microwave, coffeemaker, plenty of counter space, some dishes, glasses, silverware and a sink. There is also a stainless steel half-size fridge with ice to hold any extras guests choose to bring.
Other amenities including a hair dryer and free Wi-Fi, an iron, soap, shampoo, and of course all towels and linens. Though the host hopes guests will keep them open to enjoy the view most of the day, the windows all have honeycomb designer shades for extra privacy when wanted.
Outdoors, this tiny house has a private seating area with a fire pit and guests are always welcome to take a short walk to access the communal raised deck with outdoor dining table and chairs. There is also a short secret path to explore that runs along the ridge of the hill that offers more beautiful hilltop views (guests are recommended to wear good shoes).
Additional perks of staying at this property include optional massage services for $75/hour, and, on weekends guests can walk to the small Timber Ridge Winery located only two blocks away, where they can grab a bottle of red or white wine. Read More

The property sits on 9.75 beautiful acres and offers three available rental units on its property (along with your host's home) and has a shared library/massage room area and exercise/artist's studio.
Each unit has their own private firepit area and is visually hidden from one another when sitting outdoors.
The relaxation/massage room has a comfortable leather reading chair, a small table and chairs, and a wellness library. On-site too, there is an exercise/creativity/art studio that glampers can access. The use of the full-body vibration machine and rowing machine in this area are free to all too.
Wi-Fi is provided and your hosts are on site should you need anything special.
Guests' stay here can also include an optional artisan breakfast every morning between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. (time to be specified upon arrival) using locally sourced eggs and organics when available. The hosts are happy to adapt to guests dietary needs and gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, Paleo, Kosher, Keto, and vegans are all welcome here. Sorry, no children or pets are allowed (21 or older please), due to the property being located on rocky, unlevel terrain with stone walk paths, they are not disability-friendly for those with mobile disabilities. However, other than those stipulations, all glampers are welcome.
Last but not least, please let the host know if you have special dietary needs when making a reservation. Breakfast is generally served outdoors al fresco, weather permitting, on the deck attached to your host's house overlooking the hills and valley. A typical breakfast includes fresh berries or other seasonal fruit, locally-sourced eggs (used in a quiche, waffles, or our signature eggs rochelle with spinach), waffles, the hosts' specialty French toast or crepes, plus bacon, sausage (vegan or chicken options), mushrooms or potatoes, as well as juice and, of course, coffee or tea. The cost for breakfast for guests only is $20 (for 1-2 people). For an extra $10 fee guests can receive their breakfast "room service" style to you in the morning with advance notice.

Location + Surroundings
This bed and breakfast is the perfect location for glampers to experience the historical towns of Bandera, Boerne, San Antonio, and Helotes/Grey Forest. All are very different from each other and fun to explore, and each can be reached within 15-25 minutes. Glampers may also take a short 45-90 minute road trip to visit the cities of Austin, San Marcos, Wimberly, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Sisterdale, Comfort, Johnson City and more. Guests who are into wineries can check out "Wine Road 290," which makes up about 30 miles from Fredericksburg to Johnson City, Texas, and offers 15 wineries and tastings rooms—perfect for glampers looking to pamper themselves.
Part of what makes stays here so special are the hilltop views, the magical sunsets, the dark star-filled skies and the on-going breeze. Guests will feel far-far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and the critters here—deer, rabbit, geiko, birds, foxes, ladybugs, and sometimes lightening bugs—add to the relaxation and deep rest that we are known for.

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, breath 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, you 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.

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.
