"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 & a couple of Mini-Texas Registered Longhorns that roam the property.  Stars are extremely bright at this location & the ranch is an excellent spot for star gazing.  It is so quiet, most of the time you can hear the silence.  Two miniature donkeys visit guests around the cabin & property to make sure you're safe, and you may see a couple of fallow deer or whitetail.  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.  A couple of Llano River crossings offer a nice place to cool off in the summer, or for putting in and out for kayak trips.  Cook your meals at camp on the fire 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 drop in and have a cold one at the Headwaters Saloon and soak up 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.  The Bio Light solar system inside the cabin works quite well for lighting, and a small solar generator.  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!

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights and had so much fun. There were beautiful sunsets and stargazing was amazing. Our kids loved the swing and zipline. The donkeys and longhorns were very friendly, but put your food away at night, they will help themselves when you aren't watching lol. We didn't anticipate scorpions, so come prepared. When the bugs came out at night, they easily entered the cabin through the soffit vents. Daddy longlegs galore, but those didn't bother us. Next time we will definitely bring a bug net to sleep under. Other than that, we really enjoyed ourselves and can't wait for the next trip. Travis was great and always answered as soon as he could anytime we had questions. Great place, you'll love it!!

Looking to escape crowd during a Covid wave or just isolate yourself to think or find inspiration, this place is perfect. Super quiet, everything you need to live/survive is provided even some solar charged battery to power your lamp or listen the (included) radio. And the donkeys/longhorns will be a nice company

I loved my stay at the cabin. I’ve camped at a lot of different places over the years and this was the most peaceful place I’ve ever stayed. The only man made noise that could be heard was planes flying over head every once in awhile. If you’re a bird watcher, this is a great place for it. The cute little donkeys visited a few times while I was there. There’s a small leaflet in the cabin which states that the donkeys have been known to be pushy once you feed them and they weren’t joking 😆

Our cabin was clean and cozy when we arrived. The property had a beautiful view of the hills, sunrise, sunset, moon, and stars. There were places to hike around and explore different plants, rocks, and wildlife. The animals were our favorite part- the donkeys and longhorn were very social and kept us company. Everything we needed was available, and Travis was prompt in responding to any questions I had. We would definitely come back to visit again. :)

The sunrises and sunsets were amazing. It was wonderful to watch with only sounds of the wind and the birds. Trolling the property with my dog was an adventure. She was not ready for the terrain nor the animals. I enjoyed watching her reactions and getting her acclimated.
