"Our cabin was exactly what my wife and I needed! Michelle though of everything when equipping this home! From a great mattress, soft linens and towels, to the best kitchen equipment we've ever seen in any rental! In fact, we asked Michelle for a list of all the items she used in her home because we want them in ours! Highly recommend this cabin and host." - Martin R

Location & Surroundings

This cozy home is ideally situated to help you make the most of your stay in Staples. You’ll be walking distance from a park for relaxing strolls with the whole group. The San Marcos River runs past the town, and it’s known for fly fishing, kayaking, birding and tubing. Just 6 miles away, Martindale is home to several tube rental companies for easy-going afternoons drifting down the river.


Spend more time on the water with a trip to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels! The dual park and resort offers 51 attractions over 70 acres, so there’s bound to be fun for the whole family. Come November, the town celebrates its German heritage with the 10-day Wurstfest!


Cheer on the Bobcats of Texas State in San Marcos! The town also features an historic downtown with delicious dining and great shopping. If you’re on the hunt for a good deal, San Marcos Premium Outlets and Tanger Outlets San Marcos are nearby. Refuel with a decadent barbecue meal in Lockhart or Luling!


You’ll be an easy drive away from Austin, home to the University of Texas, great live music and parks. Catch a Formula 1 race just outside of town at the Circuit of the Americas Track! Don’t forget to visit San Antonio for the picturesque River Walk and its historic sites at the Alamo and along Mission Trail before stopping for a cold one at Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling.
