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.
Excellent location for bird watching. 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.
The added bonus is both sheets and towels are included in the nightly fee. Superb!

October, 2023 - "This well appointed cabin is both comfortable and beautiful on the inside and out. From the luscious potted plants that greet you on the elevated walkway, to the antique stove that had seen generations of lovingly prepared meals, to the comfy bed and linens, this cabin has everything you need. Although this cabin could be child friendly for a summer getaway to the Frio river, we enjoyed the quiet evenings on the perched porch. The birdwatching was exceptional. I imagine that this cabin would be a wonderful getaway any month of the year. It has air conditioning, but also a real wood burning stove! You can tell that this cabin was built with love by the owners, and it is decorated with sentimental pieces of the family’s history. My recommendation is to bring plenty of food to cook at the cabin and maximize your time there. The drive from Austin is gorgeous if you avoid San Antonio traffic. Best to bring folding chairs if you decide to head to one of the state parks. The owners are politely accessible. They live next door in this slice of Heaven on Earth. There is a television, but we never even turned it on. The view was too magnificent to look away from. We can’t wait to return. Bill and Amelia."

Bring a couple of lounge chairs and some thin mattress pads for all out comfort (but you might want to stay forever)."
June, 2022 - "We loved staying at LaCasita! The images of the property are exactly what you see. Not all locations come with everything, but this place really does.

January, 2022 - "The cabin was perfect for a winter getaway from city life. The kitchen is well equipped and the cabin was spotless. The view from the patio is the perfect place to watch the sunset. In the morning, drinking coffee and watching all the birds come to feed was very peaceful. I’m native to Texas, but saw birds I’d never seen previously. The owners are next door, friendly and helpful. If you need a quiet break, book your stay!"
November, 2021 - "Beautiful location, rustic hilltop setting overlooking a valley, beautiful house made from the native rock, flowers and trees surrounded the home and inside accommodations were calling us to stop and stay a while, which we did much to our delight."
November, 2021 - "This property was perfect for my family of 4. It had everything we needed for our stay. The view is so much better in person than in pictures. The oven is from the 1940s and so you need to light the pilot light to use it. It worked just fine and we had no problems. The check-in process was easy. It did require us to visit a different location than the property but it was on the way and didn't really impact us. I called the property manager and she didn't answer but she called me back within seconds. She was very responsive. The neighborhood was very quiet and we were able to see wildlife from the porch. I'm so happy we found this place. It was a great stay."
November, 2021 - "This property exceeded our expectations. The views are beautiful and provide a relaxing environment to enjoy nature. The owners and property manager are very gracious, friendly and responsive to any questions we had. While there we enjoyed hiking in Lost Maples State Park and scenic drives to Utopia and the surrounding area. La Casita was cozy and well maintained with every amenity we needed. The entire stay was the perfect nature inspired getaway we were hoping for."
November, 2021 - "This was our second time at La Casita and it did not dissapoint. Perfect location, perfect views, perfect hosts, all around perfect place to stay!"
October, 2021 - "We absolutely LOVED this property. The view was fantastic! I could sit on that patio all day and watch the birds. La Casita had everything that we wanted. Clean, super comfy, well stocked for cooking your own meals. It is in a great location to visit both Garner and Lost Maples State Parks."
July, 2021 - "Had a great time at La Casita. We've been coming to the Frio river for about 30 years, and usually at one of the riverside cabins. This year we decided to go to higher ground. It's quiet (yay!) The views on the porch are fantastic. Our 2 year old daughter enjoyed the sunrises and watching the "honey birds" (her words for hummingbird) drink from the feeder. Lots of other birds show up to feed as well. Deer were out in front of the cabin on several mornings. A thunderstorm rolled thru and we watched the lightning light up the hills and the clouds roll thru...very cool . Everything was very clean and well laid out. Walk in shower with excellent water pressure was great after a day on the river. Appreciate the linens/towels/paper products already being there and ready to go. Coffee machine had a wide selection as well! Kitchen had everything we needed and much more. Highly recommend!"
July, 2021 - "Everything about this place was splendid! The view, the furnishings, the owners, the agency, the location, the flora & fauna, etc etc. We've definitely found out home base for all future trips to the Frio river valley!"
"This property was absolutely adorable and perfect for our family of four. Check in and check out were super easy. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Owners live on site and were there to help us with anything we needed. Very friendly and helpful. I woke up early every morning to watch the sunrise from the balcony then went back to bed haha! It was beautiful. Thank you to both the owners and the property managers. - June, 2021"
"The setting for the cabin is gorgeous and the cabin is dream-come-true charming. It was so adorable we hardly felt like leaving it on our stay. We highly recommend this one and a true escape. The owners were delightful and everything was just perfect. Thank you so much for a lovely vacation spot. We will come again!"
"This little hidden gem was amazing, the owners live next door but were so helpful and respectful of the renters privacy. If your looking for a quiet get away from all the hustle and bustle below, this is the place. It was perfect for us and our two kids and when it rains and there’s a thunderstorm, the view is amazing!"
"Pictures don’t do justice very nostalgic old cabin vibes but also has the feel of a new/remodeled home. Great views highly recommend."
"This was our second time staying at La Casita. The accommodation is beautiful, clean and comfortable. It's close to Garner state park. We love just sitting on the breezy porch and enjoying the view and the beautiful birds that join this tree top oasis. Little touches like beautiful landscaping and flowers on the dining room table take it to the next level. The owners are friendly and accommodating. We will be back!"
"Love the scenery, amazing view. Grilling outside was great. The place was so cute. We had a chill escape."
"Excellent setting and hosts! Five stars all the way around!"
"As others have shared, an incredibly peaceful location. The big patio, abundant birds, trees, view of the valley all give it a tranquil atmosphere. Mike and Gayle were great hosts. The cabin itself is beautifully built - rustic, comfortable, excellent craftsmanship. Also the cabin was very well-stocked for cooking with ample pots, pans, spices, etc. Highly recommend and hope to be back!"
"Property was as described. Amazing view. Peaceful and Tranquil. If you need a place to recoup from the hustle and bustle, this is it. Host was informative and helpful. Recommended!!!!!!!"
"La Casita is the perfect getaway. The cabin is just the right size and has everything needed. The view of the valley from the patio is amazing and the owners keep the feeders full so there were awesome birds to sit and watch every day. I'll definitely be recommending this place to friends and family."
"We had a very positive experience at La Casita. The view was wonderful from the porch, and we enjoyed watching the birds on the property and visiting with the owners who lived next-door. We actually got to see the golden cheeked warbler a few times! The house was very clean and we have no complaints at all. Very relaxing place to stay for our spring break. It was me, husband, and two teenage girls. We brought our own food to cook and that worked out really well for the week."
"We truly enjoyed staying at La Casita. The cabin is comfortable and clean, and the view from the deck is fantastic! Mike, the owner, keeps the bird feeders full, so we had birds all day, every day. He gave us tips on bird calls so that we knew what bird might be out there singing. There are also a number of trails nearby to hike in the local state parks. We cooked meals each day as the kitchen is well equipped. It’s a lovely relaxing place, and we would highly recommend it, especially if you love birds and nature!"
"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
" Breathtaking view! The perfect mini getaway! Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I ran into this property by accident and it was a total GEM! We loved everything about this rental. Truly peaceful sunrise! From the hummingbirds to the beautiful view, it was perfect! I have already recommended this vacation rental to several friends and family members. We will definitely come back soon."
"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
"La Casita get away. Perfect perfect!" Carol P
