New and secluded cedar cabin just 10 miles from the heart of Blanco!

Discover the beauty and excitement of Blanco from this rustic rambler for six! Embracing its natural surroundings, this charming cabin has wood floors, walls, and ceilings well complemented by nice furnishings. You'll also enjoy Panoramic Hill Country views!

Located on a quiet country road about 10 miles from the town's main streets, this new cedar cabin is a perfect spot for a serene getaway to enjoy Texas Hill Country with the family, while still being a short drive from fun attractions in both Fredericksburg and Blanco. A short 25 mile drive puts you in the heart of Fredericksburg, and you'll be just 10 miles from the wine corridor.

After enjoying the expansive porch, head inside to relax on the sofa or armchairs to chat, watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, or use the in-home WiFi to search for directions to tomorrow's adventure.

There's no need to drive all the way into town for each meal with the full kitchen available. Major appliances (including a dishwasher) are paired with add-ons like a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, and mixer to create a space any chef will be happy to use.

A nearby dining table seats up to four and is great for both formal and casual meals. After a quick cleanup in the kitchen, end the evening with a little friendly competition playing board games. There's also a private washer/dryer available for your use.

This home can comfortably sleep up to six guests with two bedrooms, as well as one full bathroom and one with a shower. A king-size bed is featured in the master bedroom, while the guest room has a queen-size bed. The living room sofa pulls out to sleep two more.

When you're ready to venture out, head southeast to explore Blanco State Park. Play in the fun water features, hike, picnic, and bird watch. Fredericksburg is 27 miles away and boasts all kinds of thrilling shops, eateries, and historic sites. The Blanco River is about five minutes away and is great for fishing and tubing.

If you're around the third weekend of the month, head to Sunday Farms for the famous Fredericksburg Trade Days. Visit tasting rooms and vineyards like Grape Creek Vineyards on Main, Fredericksburg Winery, and Texas Vineyards and Beyond.

Whether you're here for a friend weekend, family reunion, or couples' getaway, this Texas home is a great place to unwind and get back to what's important. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

We’re excited to inform you that this unit utilizes a comfortable style of bed-making known as Triple Sheeting. Triple Sheeting is proven to be more hygienic and is used by five-star hotels around the world. It consists of a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a blanket, and finally a decorative top sheet.

The scenery and location of the cabin was awesome. Peaceful and quiet out there. Your around a lot of places and towns to do many activities. Want to go back again!
Brett H. Jul 2021
Great place. Clean, quiet and lots of deer and humming birds in the evening. Was 10miles from Blanco but drive was great with good scenic and curvy roads.
Rani Z. Jun 2021
Wow what a clean home! We loved the views and the beds were comfy. It's definitely well taken care of. The owners came by as we were leaving and were delightful. So friendly and were proud of their rental. The road up to the house is pretty steep so that explains the older comments. Local channels on the TV were clear so bring a DVD player or be prepared to screen share from a device if you need TV to survive. The deer feeder you can watch off the porch was fun and brought 8-10 deer in the morning and evening.
KELLY I. Jun 2021
A wonderful place to get away from the city, sip coffee or a glass of wine while enjoying the hilltop views, deer and nature! A short drive to Fredericksburg, Boerne or Wimberley.
Latisha W. Jun 2021
We had a wonderful stay at On the Rocks cabin. The cabin was conveniently located to the places we wanted to go, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle to truly relax. Would definitely recommend staying here, and will likely stay here again - maybe a little longer next time!
Laura G. May 2021
This was our second time at On the Rocks, and won't be the last. It's a lovely, quiet retreat, off the beaten path but convenient to towns and attractions. While the view is beautiful, and we awoke one morning to a thick fog that was breathtaking in its own right. A group of deer regularly visited, and at night we could hear the Chuck-will's-widows calling to each other. All the amenities were there, nothing lacking, and the place is just so comfortable and cozy. We can't wait to go back!
Terri B. May 2021
Comfortable, secluded, house with a great view. We would go back.
Dina R. May 2021
This is a great property, we have stayed here before and most likely will again. Highly recommend!
Deacon C. May 2021
Beautiful view, good amenities. Lots if wildlife in the yard.
Mark L. Apr 2021
On The Rocks was truly a special experience. My wife and I stayed only for a few days but each day was fantastic. The owners of the property were incredibly kind and even left a bottle of wine from a local winery for our stay. The area is beautiful, with deer often out beyond the patio, and the cabin is extremely clean. It was also conveniently close to Blanco and not too far from Fredericksburg. All in all, I would love to stay here again. One little note, driving in with a truck may be beneficial as the entry way was easy to navigate, but I can see how it can be a little difficult with a car or motorcycle. Nonetheless, the stay was perfect.

Every other vacation rental place we have used has been either not that clean or had plenty of bugs. We used Vacasa for the first time because it is professionally managed and cleaned, and for the first time, a place that was spotless and no bugs! I cannot tell you how relieved we were, considering our previous bug experiences.

The cabin itself is cozy, beds and sheets were very comfy, and it was in a nice secluded quiet area, with a deer feeder that attracted deer every day for us to look at. Very pleasant stay and highly recommend On The Rocks. Vacasa local support was also super responsive
Steven C. Jan 2021
On the Rocks was such a great location for us. Wildlife was everywhere and the hill country view was amazing out of the front window! The cabin was clean and just perfect for our foursome.
John K. Nov 2020
Spent 5 days/4 night here. Beautiful location with vast scenery views. Perfect for star gazing. Everything is here for a comfortable stay; very clean. Very large, new gas grill (used it twice). Easy driving access to area activities. Try it out!
Lindsey D. Nov 2020
This place was so beautiful and perfect for our anniversary getaway. We enjoyed the amazing view, cozy atmosphere and was blown away with the cleanliness. We can’t wait to return in the near future.
Manager response:
Hi Lindsey! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home, your anniversary with us. We hope to host you again soon!
Sharon B. Oct 2020
Calling this a cabin really understates how nice it is. Spacious rooms and bathrooms, full kitchen and a front porch that invites star gazing. The deer feeder brought us deer to watch every morning. It is about 20 miles from town, but we loved being out in the country.
Robert M. Oct 2020
My lady and my self wanted to spend the weekend in Fredericksburg wine tasting but literally everything was booked. I got on VRBO and found this cute little cabin in Blanco. This place is totally worth staying a little ways from town!! The views were great, nice and quiet too! The first night we were sitting on the porch drinking wine and several deer came into the yard. And I gotta say the cabin is very clean and the beds are super comfortable! It was so clean it almost looks like it was recently built. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are planed another trip before we even left🤗
Dawn N. Sep 2020
We had a relaxing Sister Weekend . The view was breathtaking and we were able to watch the deer. The cabin was super clean and beautiful which resulted in a much needed peaceful weekend surrounded by nature!
Terrie P. Aug 2020
We stayed at On the Rocks running from a hurricane. It was immaculate, beautiful, comfortable. We had every comfort from home. We met the owners Diane and David. Wonderful couple. We plan to stay here again and again!
Quentin D. Aug 2020
This cabin was perfect! We wanted something with a view and not around others. The cabin was nice and had goodies left in it for us with comfortable beds. Right in between Fredericksburg and Wimberley. We will definitely come stay here again.
Stefan O. Aug 2020
Nice quiet location, but l believe my truck helped us get to the location. It’s a short trip to many sights. All the utilities worked fine and the kitchen was nicely equipped with everything we needed— except food.
Jason L. Aug 2020
We loved the view from the front porch! Both the cabin and property are well maintained and extremely clean. We'll definitely be returning for another visit very soon. Highly recommended to anyone who wants an escape from city life!
Teresa K. Aug 2020
Everything was awesome about this cabin. It's a great place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the hill country.
Miriam W. Jul 2020
Very clean, well built cabin perfect for 2 couples. Loved our stay with friends. Saw deer daily and even a fox twice. Quick 30 minutes to Fredericksburg or about 45 minutes to Wimberley. Cabin is up on a hillside with spectacular views. Not far from the road, but the cabin is very well insulated from the road noise. As you are out in the country, WiFi isn’t always strong, but supported all 4 of us. Can’t wait to come back!
Noah C. Jun 2020
The cabin was very clean and fully stocked with everything needed for our few days here. The location is perfect and super easy to find and comes with an amazing view being on top of a hill. The cabin is very conveniently located 15 mins from Blanco State Park and 28 mins from Fredericksburg. Will be booking again this year!
Thomas C. May 2020
This home provided the best value for our stay around Blanco. Perfect size for a two couple getaway. Love to porch to just sit and watch nature. This home had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and we had plenty of room.

The only thing that may are may not be improved on is the internet speed. But if you're staying here, it is more about being out away from it all.

Would definitely consider staying again, and longer than a weekend next time.
Wendy C. May 2020
It was perfect. Peaceful and I am already thinking about going back!
Douglas G. Mar 2020
We love this Cabin. Centrally located between Fredericksburg, Luckenbach, Dripping Springs, Pederenales Falls, Hamilton Pool. Very clean. Love the serenity.
Janette G. Dec 2019
My family took a weekend trip to Pedernales Falls, Johnson City Lights & Blanco for Sunday Brunch at Rosebud Cafe. On the rocks was a perfect getaway, very clean, and a perfect size for two adults and three kids. Just far enough away to feel like we were the only people around. Coffee, soaps, and cooking supplies were provided which was very convenient. Comfy beds! We would stay again. Saw lots of deer!
Maria A M. Nov 2019
Just the first step into the cabin and we were already in love. The beds were very comfortable and the place was immaculate. Loved how the cabin was fully stocked with whatever we needed. The only thing we needed was another love seat or couch in the living room. The scenery was fantastic! Sitting outside on the porch was one of our favorite things to do. Watching the deer in the morning eat at the feeder was awesome! We will definitely be back again soon. Thanks for a wonderful vacation, vacasa!
Tanya G. Oct 2019
Beautiful cabin fully stocked with almost everything. Amazing view from the top of the hill. Deer feeder brings the deer close by we even had a fox come close to the house. Quiet and tucked away.
Esther B. Oct 2019
We loved this place! Everything was easy to access, and just as described. Plenty of wildlife and a star-filled sky.
Rahul M. Sep 2019
We loved our two night stay here. The cabin is isolated with no neighbors insight, perfect for a secluded vacation. The place is clean with very comfortable beds, fans in the the bedrooms. Major attractions that we were interested in were close by - 30 min to Fredericksburg, 10-15 min to wine trail, 45 min to Enchanted rock. We will definitely stay here again!
Laura G. Aug 2019
This home was everything we were hoping for - pretty, cozy, very comfortable beds, conveniences of home but far from city noise and lights. We saw deer several times each day we were there! We will definitely look forward to visiting again.
Virginia L. Aug 2019
This cabin was just perfect for a getaway for my mom and myself. It is roomy and well laid out and in great condition. The views from the house porc this cabin was just perfect for a getaway for my mom and myself. It is roomy and well laid out and in great condition. The views from the house are amazing and itis convenient to so many of the Hill country sites in events
Teresa H. Aug 2019
The view was breathtaking. The cabin was perfect. You know someone loves the place when everything shows it. The front porch is the place to be. The wind constantly blows even in this heat.
Kenneth H. Aug 2019
Lovely home with beautiful views and deer in the yard every morning
Armando C. Jun 2019
Beautiful well equipped home. Nicely hidden on top of a hill. Very relaxing place to stay. It's a short drive to places like Fredericksburg and Blanco State Park. My family really loved this home and given a chance we would definitely stay here again.
Thomas R. Jun 2019
This is a secluded cabin with great views from the front porch. The cabin was spotless!
John R K. Apr 2019
We loved the cabin's proximity to the many places we wanted to visit. Fredericksburg, Blanco, Dripping Springs, Albert, Lindendale, Johnson City. We also loved the peaceful, out of the way, top of the hill location. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless and well appointed. A nice bottle of wine and some other goodies awaited our arrival.
Justin B. Apr 2019
This hows has a really nice views from the front porch to have coffee on in the morning and a cold drink at night. It sits on top of a hill that looks out into the hill country which provided fantastic views and a nice breeze! The house was clean and stocked with everything we needed.
Ruby R. Mar 2019
We very much loved the view. We needed a quiet secluded place in hill country within 10 minutes of some of the best wineries around. We had plenty of tranquility and only experienced bad winds one night. That has nothing to do with the house itself just know that you are staying at the top of a hill and will hear the strength of the winds on a stormy night. All in all it was a very nice place in hill country and a definite steal!
Douglas G. Mar 2019
This is a wonderful cabin that we found very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Located centrally to Dripping Springs, Blanco, Johnson City, Luckenbach, and Fredericksburg. The cabin is spacious enough for two couple with each having their own privacy. Nice setting up a rock hill where you can look out over the hills and valley.
We would definitely stay here again.
Shelley P. Feb 2019
We loved the secure off the beaten path location, the view from the front porch, the everything you need to cook kitchen. We will definitely stay here again..
jennifer s. Jan 2019
2nd time there, we love this place. It has beautiful views, cabin is cozy and close enough to everything but out of town far enough to feel like you are leaving everything behind.
Karen D. Oct 2018
Cedar wood covers the walls and ceilings and makes everything smell fresh. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Highly recommend.
Mariah S. Oct 2018
Loved this home as it was very clean. Wish there was another couch or love seat in the living room. Will definitely be back!
Brent B. Aug 2018
I own a production company and visit Hye TX often to film projects for Garrison Brothers Distllery. I generally stay in Johnson City but had an awful experience our last visit. I decided it would be best to find a house for me and my crew. On The Rocks was perfect! Clean and ready for a very comfortable no fuss stay. If you do stay here be sure and visit Garrison Brothers and enjoy the tour!
Mary Y. Aug 2018
This cabin is beautiful! Love the view the most!
Dillon B. Aug 2018
The views were amazing! We loved our weekend here and would come back every time we are down this way!
Delana B. Jul 2018
Beautiful cabin with amazing views!
Maritza G. Jul 2018
Loved staying on the rocks. So peaceful and quiet. Had all the amenities we needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Jason B. Jul 2018
This home was clean and comfortable. The view was great and very secluded so you have the whole place to yourself. The deer at the deer feeder was a nice touch. Great price. Would definitely return.
JANE W. May 2018
We were so pleased with our stay here, the property is beautiful and in a great location for all the Hill country activities.
Matthew M. May 2018
This home is centrally located to most of the Texas Hill Country attractions yet is secluded and quiet. The view from the front porch is amazing. Wildlife were seen daily all around the property. This home is new and is fully furnished for a vacation get away. It is perfect for families with children. We will definitely look at booking this home next time we are in the area.
Toby P. May 2018
The views are amazing! And you get to enjoy them while relaxing in the living room. The cedar cabin is beautiful and smells lovely. The location is great if you want the solitude / peace and quiet but close enough to the wineries. It took us about 13-15 minutes to get to Kuhlmann on 290 from the cabin so not far at all. We really enjoyed the deer each morning coming up to feed as well. Everything was great. Highly recommended.
James C. Apr 2018
Very private and the cabin was perfect. Very clean and the view was great. Close to Fredericksburg and vineyards. Already planning our next trip. Thanks.
Keisha B. Mar 2018
This home was beautiful and had everything we needed for our girls weekend. The view is beautiful! We enjoyed our weekend and hope to go back real soon. We would definitely stay here again!
Barry W. Mar 2018
My Kids and I could not believe how quiet it was. We arrived at dark so we were unable to see anything. The next morning, it was breath taking for us all to see all the beautiful hills.
Emily M. Feb 2018
Enjoyed our stay!
Daniela E. Nov 2017
Loved this place! Will definitely book this place again
Linda P. Nov 2017
Perfect little get-away! This is a secluded cabin with phenomenal Hill Country views. Sitting on top of the hill, you can see for miles. We loved watching deer and a little fox right in front of the cabin. The cabin has all the comforts of home and is spotlessly clean! We can’t wait to return!
Ruth H. Nov 2017
On the Rocks is a spotlessly clean and well decorated home with a beautiful Hill Country view. Some rentals in the Texas Hill Country tend to be cluttered with frou frou. Not so here. The home is extremely comfortable. The beds were also very comfortable. We appreciated the separation of the bedrooms and bathrooms. The proximity of the home to Blanco was also a huge plus. All in all, this cabin surpassed our expectations. We will definitely return.
Connie B. Nov 2017
It was amazingly welcoming with little touches you find in expensive hotels. Loved it and plan to go back.
Linda P. Oct 2017
If you are looking for a secluded cabin with a spectacular view, this is it! Beautiful cabin with all the comforts of home and the cleanest you could ever find! We particularly enjoyed watching all the deer and one afternoon even saw a little fox running through the yard! We will definitely be returning!
Tina G. Oct 2017
Amazing place to stay. The view is awesome. The place is a little out of town but well worth it.
Barbara B. Sep 2017
There were five in our party and we were all very favorably impressed with "On The Rocks". I highly recommend it
Eric M. Aug 2017
When w vacation, we prefer cabin to hotels so that we can relax in a living room and cook our own meals. Vacasa is perfect for this. Although Vacasa is around 40-50 miles from the New Braunfels attractions, there is very little traffic and one can easily drive it n an hour. I actually like the privacy and seclusion before hitting the mad houses of Schlitterbahn, tubing, and the like.
Scott G. Aug 2017
I stayed at On the Rocks with my family of 5. This cabin was awesome. Everyone was able to have their own privacy when needed and spent a lot of the weekend on the front porch soaking in the beautiful hilltop view and watching the wildlife. The cabin itself couldn't be to old. Everything in it was really new. The bed in the master room was great. Very clean, everything you need other than food and drink was furnished. Had a washer and dryer to clean our swimwear in. Overall just a great experience for me and my family. Would definitely stay here again in the future. First class rental!!
GAUGE G. Aug 2017
Don't let the remote location fool you! You're 15-20 minutes from just about everywhere. The view is inspiring and you're secluded from everyone. The place is new, clean, and roomy. We love the place.
Marcella R. Jun 2017
This cabin was very comfortable, clean and had a great location for the wineries we like--Calais, Kuhlman Winery, William Chris and Pedernales. It is near Albert Ice House and Bryan's on 290--all places that we really like. It has a great view and deer walking by occasionally. The stars were beautiful at night. Everything was nice and new in the cabin. Both the beds and pillows were very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it!
Alan P. Jun 2017
The property is well away from the noise of towns and traffic. The view was startlingly good, with the usual rolling hills and valleys in the distance. It was very quiet and peaceful.
Jessica G. May 2017
We enjoyed this cute & quiet cabin. The views were breathtaking from the front porch while sipping wine and/or with your morning coffee. We enjoyed watching the deer at the feeder first thing in the morning. Shampoos and soaps were provided, similar to a hotel. A complimentary bottle of wine, fruits and snacks were all available. Great little touches to welcome guests. The house was very clean and well organized. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Faye G. May 2017
The On the Rocks cabin was wonderful.
The location is great to visit small town Texas like Stonewall, Hye, Albert, Luckenbach.
The cabin is spacious and very clean.
Amber S. May 2017
We stayed here for a weekend getaway and work related activity nearby. The home is very secluded and beautiful. The cabin is brand new and rustic in appearance with all the modern luxuries. The owners paid close attention to details and even arranged for a bottle of wine, chocolates, fresh fruit, and a thank you card upon our arrival. The front porch is the perfect spot for an evening dinner and a glass of wine. The location is a short, scenic drive to restaurants, live music venues, wineries, and shopping. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation.
Paula W. Apr 2017
If you're looking for seclusion, peace and quiet, this is the place for you. This cabin is brand new and beautiful, and we were so lucky to be the first guests to stay in it. The view from the front porch is amazing. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and it was so convenient having a washer and dryer there.

The Blanco River for fishing is about three miles away. Fredericksburg, Boerne, Bandera, Medina, Vanderpool, Luckenbach and Johnson City are all nearby for day trips. The road from Vanderpool to Medina is a beautiful drive.

It is truly an awesome place to stay. We would definitely stay there again.
