The site sits at the junction of Bailey Creek and the South Llano River. The land is managed for bird watching and plant diversity and boast and astonishing variety of plant species. One such, "Cupgrass", is a favorite food source for the Painted Bunting and the Black-throated Sparrow almost always available for view here. Humans have been on the site and estimated 7,000 years now and there is strong sense of peace and continuity in the land and waters here. The wells are shallow, spring fed, and sweet with limestone, so bring your favorite tea or coffee. And a hat! The river is flowing well, but due to the severe drought, a bun ban is in effect.

Cupgrass Cabins: The Farmhouse
The Farmhouse was a great home base for our group! The layout was awesome and there was more than enough space, including bathrooms, for our party of 8 high school girls and 12 of their parents. We took day-long float trips, but the house was a great place to come back to for preparing meals and playing lots of cards and dominoes.

Cupgrass Cabins: The Farmhouse
The close proximity of the river made this a perfect vacation for me and my 3 teenage grandsons. We hiked, swam, fished and kayaked. It was wonderful for them and I got to spend the early mornings while they slept journaling, drinking tea and watching the hummers. I can’t wait to make this a yearly memory making trip!

Best Father’s Day ever
This place is fantastic. Great location on the S Llano River. Had a great time fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. The house is great, plenty of room for 6 of us. Highly recommend and can’t wait to come back

South Llano River Steward
I'm actually torn--yes, the Farmhouse is a lovely, homey, place in a perfect location on the South Llano River. There is easy access to the river for paddling (kayaks available) or swimming. Or you can drive up the road for a longer paddle that is just right for a morning of fishing, birding and loafing on crystal clear water--with brief interludes of small rapids and riffles. Glen is a good river steward and is creating and protecting stream side habitat. Really a perfect place. But do I really want anyone else to know about this place? Selfishly we'd like to keep it to ourselves! I can't wait to go back. Thank you Glen!

Loved the cabin and the river. The furniture was great and the sleeping porch was wonderful. The setup at the river with the grills and the kayaks perfect

Cupgrass Cabins: The Farmhouse
My family of both adults and small children are sold on the Farmhouse. The house itself is updated with modern kitchen, tall ceilings, large rooms, washer/dryer and a front porch that sports hummingbird feeders. The river is a short walk or drive with steps leading down. There are access points for kayaks very close to the property. I can’t say enough for the hospitality of the host, Glen. He lets you have your privacy but gets back with you promptly if you have questions. We stayed 5 days and between our trips to Fredericksburg and Kerrville (each about an hour away) we still had plenty of time for itty bitties to play at the State Park (6 miles from house) and for the adults to do a lot of porch sitting even in the heat. Great time- great house. Charla L
