La Casita is a heartwarming cottage nestled privately among massive agave plants, lush palms and cedar trees. Elegant and sophisticated on the outside, cozy and enchanting on the inside, this cabin will melt your heart. Amid the solitude, start your day by stoking the fire of the wood burning stove while making morning coffee. This charming cabin is simply and thoughtfully furnished, with every detail inviting you to slow down and stay a while.
For those seeking the ultimate in spectacular Frio Valley views and exceptional tranquility, La Casita is the perfect place to escape from the ordinary. This expertly built, white rock cabin is the coveted guest house to a spectacular estate high in the clouds, yet only 5 minutes to the Frio River. Park in the circular driveway and walk along an elevated pathway to take in the sheer beauty of the mountain range and Frio River Valley below your private covered deck. There is a BBQ grill and outside burner on the deck.
Once you enter La Casita, you immediately feel at home. The kitchen, dining room and living room are one large, open concept room, yet there is a thoughtful balance between the dark barn wood, vaulted ceiling and light streaming in through the widows. The expansive blue skyline envelopes the living room walls of rich natural hue of aged timber that frames the picture perfect views.
Your eyes will be drawn to the homey room filled with ducks, deer, snow shoes and other outdoor nostalgia. Antique dining room lights cast a romantic glow from the ceiling beams and hanging wall lanterns are next to the beds for added character. As night falls the outdoor lighting illuminates the walkway and deck to soak in the ambiance.
From the comfortable leather sofa, rustic decor and artistic touches throughout, everything is picture perfect. The quaint kitchen centers around the owners family heirloom stove that is fully functional. The custom made stove vent is from reclaimed barn wood, and the corner cabinet is well stocked. This is the place to relax, reconnect and start counting your blessings.

Red-tailed Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, White-tailed Kite, Zone-tailed Hawk, Long-billed Thrasher, Northern Mockingbird, Northern Bobwhite, Wild Turkey, Purple House Finch,, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Hooded Oriole, Eastern Bluebird, Flycatcher, Black crested Titmouse

"We highly recommend this cabin for a getaway! Clean, quiet, and peaceful! Happy New Year!"
"We were impressed overall, the property had everything we needed and more."
"La Casita is clean and perfectly located with an amazing view. The deck allows you to enjoy the sunset/sunrise. In the mornings the birds are a joy to watch as they come to the feeders - especially the hummingbirds! Beds are comfortable and the shower/bath area is great. It’s a bit of a steep/narrow drive up to the property but you’ll be glad when you arrive to see the scenery. We will be back!"
"This place is SO awesome! Please don’t tell anybody so I can book it whenever we can! Great location, excellent amenities and vert well appointed kitchen! The view is beyond beyond...! Well done!!!"
"We really enjoyed our stay at La Casita and will gladly book again in the future! The view was fantastic, the beds were comfortable, the property was clean and well stocked for our needs, and the host was friendly and helpful!"
"We so enjoyed our special time at La Casita. Not only was the cabin super clean, comfortable and cozy, but had lots of nice touches - art, memorabilia, flowers, little snacks. And the view - better than expected, like being in a tree house. Lots of birds visited and sitting on the veranda was such a nice way to spend time relaxing. The hosts were very lovely to meet and so hospitable. Can't wait to return next spring!"
"Amazing place! No surprises! Clean, quiet and easy. We look forwarded to coming back!!"
"My husband and I loved our stay at La Casita! We celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary and our babymoon. We were so surprised when the owners left us a baby gift! Everything was clean and well taken care of. The view is breathtaking. We will definitely be returning!"
"We enjoyed every aspect of our recent getaway at La Casita. The cabin itself exceeded our expectations in every way, the owners went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, and watching the hummingbirds on the patio was an unexpected bonus. We will definitely be staying at La Casita for future Frio trips!"
" The cabin is very clean, quiet, and very comfortable. It was the perfect setup for us."
" Great Place to Relax. This was the perfect get-away during the fall. The views from La Casita were wonderful. The home is stocked full of everything you need to enjoy your stay. The hosts next door were so helpful. I would highly recommend this for others who want to be up in the hills away from the crowds." Darcy S

"Rare Jewel. Been stayin at the Frio since the "civil war days":)and have rented multiple properties over the years. This one is in a class by itself...first class right down to the last nail not to mention the awesome view. If you need two bedrooms/three beds there is no comparable choice in my book. Frio Fun always a great pleasure to deal with!!" David V
" Absolutely CHARMING!! Oh my goodness, we fell in love with this charming little place. My favorite thing was the patio... I sat there every morning with my coffee watching the hummingbirds. I had never seen them so close up before. Every detail was perfect and inviting. I am already planning a trip to come back to the area (Concan is stunning), and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The views are fabulous and the owner was super nice! Only think I could have used was a hanger for a dress I brought. If you need something to hang up you might pack one... but other than that they have everything you will need!!" Dena W
