My boyfriend and I came to celebrate his birthday before we both head back to school. It was such a great getaway from the city. Shea was so nice and loved the effort she put into making our stay better! So cozy would definitely love to come again.

Kid friendly secluded cabin
This is our second time staying here, that’s how much we love it. It is exactly the kind of place we have needed, a secluded place where the kids can run around and play and just be kids. There are some outdoor games to play. I couldn’t tell you how many times we played giant jenga. And the inside is super clean and comfy for our family. Plus some firewood and stuff for s’mores was provided, and we definitely took advantage of that. I’m sure we’ll be back again soon!

They have everything from bean bags to the stacker games with the big logs, all of the hanging lights are beautiful. It’s a perfect design with a lot of thought put into it. I also love the fact that it’s not directly behind where they live. It makes it feel as if it is your own. Only thing that would make it better if I had to say something it would be a bigger hot water heater.

Hico Cabin on the Creek
Beautiful tiny home. Clean and comfortable. Our weather was perfect so we spent a lot of time outside. We had a bonfire each night. Shea our host, left wood and kindling for the fire and everything we needed to make delicious s’mores. The beds, linens and pillows were so comfortable! Hico is a lovely small town with delicious food options and great shopping!

A relaxing retreat
We stayed at this cabin to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we really enjoyed our stay. The host, Shea, was the best! Everything you could possibly need was at the cabin. My husband and I enjoyed playing the outdoor games that were available and the s’mores that were provided by our host was the perfect way to end this relaxing weekend. Would definitely come back!

Charming County Guest House
Like camping with all the modern conveniences, very quiet and stars were bright. There is no TV same as real camping would be. The heat and humidity and swarm of bugs to the light kept us inside most of our stay but the full length glass windows and door down the whole side made us feel like we were still outside. Creek was dried up completely so I look forward to coming back after the spring rain events to fish. Very unique country guest house feel more than a cabin and just isolated enough to make you feel your in your own little world. I loved the visits from the horse and cows as the best part of the stay , they came right up to the gate and let us pet them.

Great getaway from the city! Very helpful instructions and notes all around the cabin. The most comfortable bed and pillows we've ever slept on in a rental. Very nice touch with the smores options! Small thoughtful touches throughout the property.

Overall good, need some improvement
The host is very responsive and communicative. The place felt nice due to special touches presented by the hostess. Appreciate the kitchen equipment is well stocked. Overall, the cabin is beautiful and functional. However, hot water was tricky to use. I followed the direction to the tooth but water was way hotter to take shower at night. On the next morning, temperature was back to normal range in the hot setting. Plus, one morning, we didn't have access to the water due to below freezing temperatures and the outside pipe froze. Also, would have been nice if there was some kind of roll-up shades/blinds since it is hard to put down infant for a nap when the sunlight is blazing through the large windows.

My wife and I needed a nice, simple getaway that was out of the city and the little cabin on the creek was perfect. The cabin was cute, cozy and cool (it was triple digits and the cabin stayed cool and comfortable). Everything in the cabin is high quality and works well. You can’t fit a lot of stuff in a cabin that size, but somehow, everything you need is there. We definitely plan on going back at a time of year when it’s not so hot and we can be outside more and enjoy the creek.

Hidden gem nestled in Hico
Let me preface this by saying: if your dates are available, book now. Cabin on the creek is everything I expected and more. We, as a family of 3, stayed at the cabin for 4 nights and had the most amazing nature retreat. I could go on and on about the thoughtful touches, like the personalized s’more packs Shea has laid out upon arrival or the hotel-like arrangement of bath, face and beach towels, available for your use as well as top-notch body washes and shampoo, but it’s Shea’s amazing southern hospitality and easy communication that made us feel welcomed. Location is perfect, A/C is so cool, bed is heavenly, and nature is on full display at this wonderful cabin. Will be back one thousand percent!

This was an incredible experience that we won’t soon forget. Every detail of the cabin was meticulously planned and they had all the supplies you would need for your adventure. Loved the smore bags, fire wood and all the great activities around the property. This place is dreamy and the surrounding towns of Hico and Glen Rose were so unexpectedly charming. The hosts really go out of their way to make this place feel special and it shows.
