Time slows down when you visit Glen's homestead on the South Llano River. The original home is a 3-2.5 with cozy bedrooms, an open living room with fireplace and aquarium, two porches (including one large screened porch with large dining table). The house has a mix of modern conveniences and charming references to Kimble County history: books, brick molds, old campaign memorabilia - there was just so much to investigate! We hosted a dinner for our large group on the screened porch for the Saturday of our stay, and it was just lovely.

The master bedroom has a Texas Zen feel, with several high end, modern quilts displayed as art on one wall, and a private full bath and closets. The second bedroom has charming, cozy bee-inspired bedspread, botanical decor, antique chest and love seat, and access to a full hall bath. I stayed in the 3rd bedroom, which had a pillowtop mattress, leather reading chair, and built in bench and bookcases. The 3rd bedroom is adjacent to a half bath. An exterior door provides access via a utility room to the other side of the half bath, and gives convenient, tiled access when returning from the river.

On my first morning, I looked out the kitchen window to see a parade of what I can only describe as heritage chickens - beautiful individuals with personality that one is tempted to name - parading by and living their best chicken lives. And then, to top the moment off, I looked down to see butterflies on the native flowers that form a perimeter around the house. This is just one moment that indicates how time passes here.

The river is a short walk (maybe 100 yards?) from the main house. It's a peaceful part of the river, and my friends' 4-year old son caught his first fish off the riverside steps. I did a quick kayak trip from the first bridge, and it was a serene paddle that is easily navigable by beginners. The take out at Glen's was easy to spot.

I really appreciate Glen's long-term vision in planting native wildflowers, shade trees, and a nascent orchard of fruit trees. So cool!

This is a great spot for friends and families who want some relaxing, quality time together. Thanks so much for hosting us, Glen! We hope to return!!!

Had an amazing weekend. The house was great and had everything we needed. Very spacious. Nice short walk to the river. Glen was the most accommodating host ever. Was there for anything needed. He took us to the bridge with kayaks and we had the best time fishing and kayaking back to the house. Chickens and fresh eggs were a plus. We are already looking forward to going back.

Outstanding trip!! Cabin was very well kept, clean, cool and comfortable. Beautiful piece of property on a beautiful stretch of the river. Kayaks were great and really enjoyed just lounging in the river as well!

Cupgrass Cottage was a beautiful sanctuary for our family getaway! Plenty of room to spread out in the house and on the property. Glen dropped us off for the 2 hour kayak trip and it was a magical paddle, thanks for being such a great host Glen!

This is my second stay with Glen in the past month and he absolutely gets 5 stars for being the most gracious host and still allowing guests the privacy that this beautiful space provides. We kayaked, played in the river, drank coffee on the back porch and wine on the side porch, slept like babies and then woke up and did it again - and enjoyed fresh eggs and his amazing honey!
