My husband and I have built 100% of our homestead ourselves, with no hired help and we try to use as much recycled materials as possible. We're fully off grid with solar power, rainwater, and and it's a lifestyle that we both enjoy very much.

Awesome site!
My girlfriend and I loved staying here. It is such a unique site! We appreciated everything Marlena provided such as instructions around the site on how to operate the record player, heater, lights, etc. When we did have questions, she was extremely quick to reply. Marlena was the perfect host, the site was amazing, and we cannot wait to come back!

Off Grid Tiny Cabin in Hill Country
Even better than expected! Well made, attentively appointed and clean cabin in a beautiful setting. I stayed for two nights for some much needed time alone. It was perfect! Guadalupe river nature park is not far and did some nice hiking. I hope to be back!

Peaceful getaway
We absolutely loved our stay here and can’t wait to be back! The space was so well designed and we appreciate the attention to detail. From the fresh eggs and flowers to toiletries, utensils, coffee. tea. Everything was thought of. We left feeling so inspired to live our lives off grid and more self reliant. It was truly the best experience we could’ve had. Thank you Marlena!

Scenic Getaway
This was our first booking through Hipcamp and we were super pleased with everything about this place. Marlena was very detailed with directions on how to get there. The cabin was most definitely off grid! It almost makes you not want to leave. We'll be back soon :)

Great cabin with very hospitable hosts. It was very cozy and the attention to detail was wonderful, you can tell it was made with love. I was a little surprised the hosts house was so close by, it wasn't a bother at all, we just weren't expecting that and moreso a cabin by itself. But it takes a level of trust to allow someone to stay so close to your home, and honestly, it made it even more humbling. Overall it was a great stay and i would recommend it to anyone looking to get away

Warm, charming, cozy cabin
Marlena was the kindest host. The cabin is beautiful and well designed! The wood stove was warming the cool fall air when we arrived, and kept us cozy for the whole visit. There was plenty of wood for feeding the fire, and the outside fire pit was also setup with wood, which we spent a large part of the day sitting around, while camp cooking and star watching. The shower was warm, there was plenty of water for dishes, cooking, and coffee, and the doing your business bathroom system was simple and clean. The screened in porch was a good place to set out an afternoon picnic, and deck was a nice spot for nature watching. We walked on the trail, forest bathed, and thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated everything about this special off the grid cabin. It was a wonderful place! Limestone, fossils, shells, grasses, cedar, live oaks, an armadillo, two whitetail deer, and other hill country flora and fauna are here, too.

We will be back soon and often!!
I've booked many homes and campsites through AirBnb, Homeaway, and Hipcamp through the years and this was by FAR the best experience I've ever had. I booked the cabin as a surprise weekend getaway for my partners birthday. Marlena went above and beyond to make the weekend special - even going as far as to pick up the flowers I ordered from the local florist. The mile drive up their driveway is a beautiful scenic experience in itself. Marlena greeted us as soon as we arrived, ensuring that we make ourselves at home and feel free to explore the property. The cabin was much larger than I anticipated - perhaps it was the high ceilings or clever use of space. All the kitchen and bathroom essentials were available, as well as some lovely extras like coffee, tea, and beautifully smelling natural soaps. You can tell there was a lot of thought put into every detail of the space - down to the lighters placed next to every candle/bundle of sage. We had plans to explore the surrounding town, but the property was so beautiful and inviting we couldn't bring ourselves to leave! If possible, I suggest you add on the tour of the property - Marlena drove us around their land in an offroad vehicle, telling us of its history and stopping to show us special places along the way. There is truly something magical about this place - I highly recommend and will be back very soon.
