Secluded mountain top cabin w/ private hot tub, firepit, plenty of private space

If you're looking for an unforgettable vacation home with an incredible history, look no further than The Outpost. This unique limestone and log cabin was constructed from various military, historical, and first-responder buildings from all across Texas, including The Alamo, Houston Firehouse #7, and the San Jacinto Monument! This one-of-a-kind property is only 14 miles away from the heart of downtown and only 8 miles from Enchanted Rock State Park.

Nestled 2,000 feet high on a private mountain top, these 15 secluded acres are all yours to explore since there are no other cabins and no other renters on the property. The owners do not live on-site and you do not have any close neighbors. The surrounding land is undeveloped and open on all sides making it feel like you have hundreds of miles to explore and the sunrises/sunsets are unbelievable. To the east is Enchanted Rock and a beautiful valley – a great place to sit and watch the sunrise. To the west, off the panoramic back porch, is another valley where the sun will rest for the day, but not before lighting up the sky with every color imaginable. If you want a moment to clear your head, then this is the place – there is very little noise pollution so it can be extremely quiet.

This family-friendly haven offers a gas grill for afternoon barbecues in the covered barn area, ideal for cookouts, watching TV, and group gatherings. This vacation home is also great for couples, families, and bachelor/bachelorette parties, too. A small inflatable pool, fan sprinkler, and portable play yard are available for the kiddos to enjoy the outdoors. Find a cornhole game to play outside, an outdoor speaker system with Bluetooth capabilities, an Alexa Dot, satellite TV, and free WiFi. Even more fun elements of this memorable stay include a patch wall (bring your insignia or patches), a coin challenge, and on-site souvenirs for sale. After a day spent wine tasting, shopping, horseback riding, or hiking Enchanted Rock, you can gather around the firepit or use the telescope for stargazing. There is no light pollution so you can view a night sky filled with countless stars. Stare in awe of the great arm of the Milky Way Galaxy, count shooting stars, or watch as satellites zoom across the starfield. Kick back in the heated six-person hot tub as you listen to the coyote howl at the sunset. Don’t feel like cooking? Our partner, Chel Leo Aguirre, will make the trip to cook you an amazing meal.

Sip morning coffee on the covered patio and take in views of the Hill Country as you listen to the wild turkeys gobble and watch the deer grazing at the animal feeder. The property’s roadways and trails are ideal for walking, biking, hiking, and ATVing off property. Because of the open land, there is great biodiversity on the property. From October to March, you can witness black Angus cattle grazing on the property; from September to October, you can see the magic of millions of orange Monarch butterflies migrating south for the winter on the property in the designated Monarch Waystation area.

This rustic getaway is decorated with numerous military and first-responder artifacts yet also provides all the comforts and luxuries of home. The open floor plan features a welcoming living area with a wood-burning fireplace, TVs, and fun perks that include a telescope, binoculars, many board games, books, and the Outpostbuster movie center (a large selection of DVDs). The full kitchen is wonderfully suited for all of your culinary needs.

One other item to mention, The Outpost has hidden rooms, trap doors, secrets, riddles, and puzzles. Who knows what you may discover in or around the cabin?

We came to ring in the new year at The Outpost, and everything was so perfect for our family of 4! From games, board and Wii, to the hot tub and the cache clues, my kids couldn’t get enough. As a mom, I really appreciated the fantastic comfort of the beds, the well-stocked kitchen and the views and surrounding areas were beautiful. We were close enough to Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock to make getting to activities easy, but a little bit off the beaten path to be able to completely relax. My kids are already asking to come back! The owners were fantastic with communication too.

Wonderful place.

We’ve been coming to Fredericksburg at Christmas for 17 years and this years stay at The Outpost might just be our favorite house yet. Besides the house having everything you’d need, the small extra touches are what made it for us. A Christmas hot chocolate set up, movie snacks, prepared s’mores baggies for the fire pit, hidden “Easter eggs” and a secret room, our kids favorite were the hidden stuffed fabric mice, bottled water chilling in the fridge and a stocked wine fridge with a kind note from the owners saying to enjoy a bottle on them, the list goes on. And the yard with the fire pit and hot tub and awesome view! It was so peaceful. The owners have also taken such great care to honor the men and women in the armed forces and have some incredibly amazing historical artifacts in the home and a binder they composed with history on them all. The revolutionary and civil war cannonballs in the fireplace were our favorite. We loved exploring the property and can’t wait to see all their plans for the acreage come to fruition!

The Outpost was an amazing home, beautiful inside and out! It came fully stocked with anything you could need and the owners were quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed the views, the spacious kitchen, the hot tub, and the Easter eggs! I wish we could have stayed longer, we’ll definitely be back.

The military memorabilia gave the Outpost a very unique vibe - everything was thought of down to the smallest detail - very secluded - fantastic sunsets
Nora P. Oct 2022
The house was amazing! Loved all the military decorations and information. It was EXTREMELY CLEAN! The outdoor fire pit was so peaceful and perfect for star gazing. The owners were quick to respond to questions or concerns. It was very relaxing and I was able to decompress from being in the city. I will definitely book again but this time for more than one night!
Michael R. Oct 2022

We had this little paradise for only one day but it was just perfect. The place is clean, has a very nice and welcoming atmosphere and provides excellent scenic views and wildlife. Be aware of the scorpions through!

Amazing views and very beautiful home! Very relaxing vacation
Jenna R. Jul 2022
The location is fantastic. We felt a world away from hustle and bustle. Took a trip into town once but the house has everything you could ever need. The hot tub and view was great, not to mention the breeze all through the day. Made this texas heat bearable. This home is thoughtful and we will be back. Our dogs also loved the adventure down to the little creek and laying in the nice cool grass!
Daren M. Jul 2022
This place checked all the boxes! We were able to get away without being too far away. The back porch was perfect for morning coffee and watching the sun go down. The hot tub was in the perfect spot to enjoy the fire at night and the lightning storms across the way. During the day when it was too hot to go outside, the riddles and secret rooms kept us busy.

The owners put so much detail into this spot! From towel placement to a pooper scooper for the pup being available, I can't imagine it being better! There was so much history wrapped up into every thought out detail and riddle, being impressed is an understatement.

We will be back!

The house was far enough away to feel secluded, but a close drive into town. The house had everything we needed. So much thought and love in every detail. My daughter loved all of the stories and history. We would for sure book this house again!!!
