"Glamp" in this cute off-grid cabin outside of Harper, Texas.  Watch amazing sunsets & views from the relaxing front porch.  At 2000' above sea level, you can enjoy the weather year round with proper planning.  Enjoying campfires at night in the pit is a favorite past time. The Cabin sits on a high-fenced 84 acre wildlife refuge managed for Native Song Birds & Wild Turkey with walkable/bikeable trails.  "Panther Creek" traverses the ranch & natural springs keep water in the ponds for wildlife.  We have a family of Mini-Donkeys & Mini-Texas Registered Longhorns that roam the property.  Stars are extremely bright & the ranch is an excellent spot for star gazing.  It is so quiet, most of the time you can hear the silence.  Three miniature donkeys visit guests around the cabin & property to make sure you're safe, and you may see some of the elusive deer.  The sounds of coyotes will call you most evenings and nights, and it's not uncommon to hear foxes, wild hogs and other wildlife throughout the night.  If you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring some ear plugs.  Bird seed & supplemental water are provided year round and make this a great destination for birders and outdoor enthusiasts.  Many unique bird species have been spotted on the ranch.  It is a 40 Minute drive to Kerrville or 30 min to Fredericksburg and Junction.  Area attractions include Enchanted Rock, the Eckert's James River Bat Cave, South Llano River State Park, & Texas Hill Country wineries. Yates River Crossing on the Llano River offers a nice place to cool off in the summer, or for fishing and putting in and out for kayak trips.  Cook your meals over fire at camp on cooking grate, or in the cabin on the 2 burner stove.  If that's more that you want to mess with, head into the cute town of Harper for EXCELLENT meals at The Longhorn Cafe, or check out some of the other cool establishments for some local culture.  We recommend bringing much of what you would for back country camping.  Note there is no electricity, running water, or toilets, so come prepared.  There is a small solar generator inside the cabin that provides some plugs and usb ports.  Solar light bulb provides light.  Ask the host for recommendations on what to bring and expect.  We offer the HipCamp "extra" Firewood Bundle for $10 which allows you to DIY harvest any grounded deadwood during your stay.  Please do not cut off any branches on any trees, even if they are dead, as we are mindful of Oak Wilt. Thanks!

The cabin was just about everything that I had hoped. I spent a peaceful night camping by myself and it was not nearly enough time. It was so fun to be visited by the resident donkeys. The cabin is truly off the grid with no cell phone service or internet, which is exactly what I was looking for (but make sure you have directions loaded ahead of time :)

This was a beautiful escape from city life in Austin. Travis is super helpful with his tips. Feeding carrots to the donkeys was a highlight for sure.

Loved the privacy. Firepit very nice. Donkeys were so cool. They greet you when you drive up. The cabin was cute, but do bring lighting and everything you would for camping.

Great little spot to unwind and get away. It felt very isolated(in a good way!) and getting to meet the donkeys was super cool. Would 100% recommend. The view of the stars at night was truly breathtaking.

An absolutely idyllic get-away. Comfortable and quaint, with a perfect fire circle and the most beautiful tree and starlight framing the sweet, timeless cabin. Just loved it, and hope to return!

Beautiful spot. Cabin sits high on a hill, making for beautiful sunsets. Rustic and still feels like camping, with just enough creature comfort.

Loved it here! Super peaceful and a healing break from city life. They’ve thought of everything and the cabin is great! There are all the necessities as well as lots of fun additions like cards, horseshoes, a mini zip line and animals. There are even head lamps which really came in handy!
We weren’t able to see the donkeys bc they ventured to the neighbor’s property but the longhorns were very sweet.
