So nice i’ve booked it twice
What more can I say about The Bird’s Nest except, I enjoy my time here so much I’ve booked it twice. And I will book Barbara’s place again this fall I am sure. She has created such an inviting and completely unpretentious spot right on the river. She has all of the amenities you think you will need. This time I didn’t bother to bring a cooler, because she has a fridge and HEB is right down the road. ENJOY!
Barbara's cabin on the Guadalupe River was the low key getaway we needed. The space is small but situated nicely and is equipped with all the essentials. The backyard was my favorite part - very natural and transports you to your own space in the woods.
Everything as advertized
We had a wonderful time and Barbara was so genuine and nice. The only thing missing was a longer time to stay! She was especially welcoming to my Winston (fur baby). Will be back for sure.
I've been to many bed and breakfast in my time but this was the best by far. The cottage was great. Sitting outside in the morning and the evening watching all that God has to offer us was just lovely.
Barbara was great and made the trip so enjoyable 😊. Loved it!
My husband and I spent our 5th wedding anniversary at Barbara’s little oasis on the Guadalupe, and we truly enjoyed every moment of our stay. The cottage was cozy and had all the comforts of home - kitchen supplies, A/C, comfy bedding, a small TV with satellite, a charcoal grill, even a fenced in yard that our dog loved (disclaimer, the fence may not be secure for larger dogs or escape artists though it was sufficient for our older guy). But of course what we loved the most was getting to enjoy the beautiful natural area around us. It’s described here as being the best of both worlds, secluded and serene while only blocks away from the amenities of Kerrville, and we learned during our stay that that’s no coincidence - owner and host Barbara has worked tirelessly through the years to keep the area as natural as possible while still allowing visitors to enjoy it. We got to take long walks along the lovely paved trail by the river, spent a whole day swimming and lounging in the shade of the cypress trees on Barbara’s own private river bank, and enjoyed a cookout in our little backyard as we watched the fireflies fill the air. It was a truly memorable experience made all the more special by the kindness and hospitality of our host. We can’t wait to return!
Perfect shelter in place
The bird's nest is a perfect name for this place. I sat on the back porch (you actually have two little porches to yourself to choose) and watched the birds come in to feed throughout the day. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this perfect little cottage on the river, but I can say that the cottage is born of the love and sweat of its beautiful owner next door. I took lots of photos of the place, but none quite capture its humble charm. I will also say the location cannot be beat. Walk out your back yard to the river trail, bike to town for groceries if you need them, jump on the road to Bandera or anywhere else super quick. Also know, Barbara has everything you will need...EVERYTHING; pots, pans, salt and pepper, OFF, towels. Bring shampoo and bodywash.
Cozy cabin in a sweet location
Our family of 3 really enjoyed staying in this cabin. We wanted to stay 2 extra nights to continue the fun, but then the weather changed for the worse. The location was very convenient to access the river trail as well as shops and restaurants. The wi-fi worked great so we could have a working vacation. Barbara was a knowledgeable and friendly host with good recommendations for things to do. We will definitely be back to contine exploring the local area and hopefully work less and play more.
