A Quiet Retreat
On the Llano River
yourself on the front porch of this charming country cabin in the late afternoon, watching the
sun set behind rolling hills. Or stepping out on a fresh autumn morning to go canoeing
or fishing on the Llano River just 900 paces away from the front door.
Our part of the Llano River is
deep and wide and has private owners on both sides. Swimming, fishing,
canoeing to the rapids are all possible here. We have a canoe and keowis
(similar to kayak) available. You can also enjoy birdwatching, native
plants, night sky gazing, or hiking around the property. If you plan on bringing your own bicycles with you, check out these recommended rides from our local bicycle hero Scott Richardson (Kimble County Bicycle Rides.pdf). A diversity of native birds can be found in our area. In November, 2010 a Travis Audubon group sighted the following 90 bird species around the Junction area, (click here for a winter bird list).

The cabin is privately located on our farm. It has two bedrooms, two baths,
and a sleeping loft over the kitchen and will accommodate up to six persons. All of the
furniture was hand built of mesquite wood. There is a full kitchen with dishes and
cookware as well as a laundry room for your use. Groceries and other supplies
are a ten-minute drive away, in the friendly small town of Junction. The
cabin is equipped with central air-conditioning and heat, or you can
open the windows to breathe Hill Country fresh air. No smoking in the cabin, no
pets please, and children are welcome.
We are pleased to offer this quiet spot as a retreat from your everyday world.
