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.

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

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.
