Located about 2 miles from Hamilton Pool Preserve, Westcave and Reimers Ranch, our private and primitive but cozy glamping tent overlooks the quintessential Texas Hill Country. It’s a short hike from your car, deep in a 10 acre juniper forest and under a very dark night sky. Enjoy fossil hunting down the trail, and visit some of the amazing nearby parks and breweries and wineries. There’s so much to do in Dripping Springs! The tent is furnished with a queen bed, another queen mattress underneath to pull out and a small futon/couch. It sleeps most comfortably up to 4 adults. Screened windows and a covered deck.

There is NO electricity, but we do provide solar lighting, fans, lanterns, cell phone charging banks, and a hose with clean delicious well water. There is NO heating or cooling, so please prepare for weather and temperatures accordingly just like you would in a regular tent. (We’ll fill the tub with cold well water for dunking in the hotter months and load you up with blankets in the colder ones.) Cell service works fine! Well behaved dogs welcome, but be aware we are not fenced and we have a friendly black lab on the property who may stop by for a hello. Small fires allowed in the fire ring when the burn ban is off. You are welcome to bring cooking gear but we have many awesome eateries and breweries in the area! There is a grate for the fire ring for cooking or heating the kettle when the burn ban is off. There is an outhouse off to the side of the tent in the woods, it has a compost style camp toilet and a hand washing station ** Emphasis on the “primitive camping”, but much comfier! Note: our property is very much wild hill country, steep rocky terrain, uneven ground, shared with all the local animals. Good shoes and watching your step a must!

Add-on idea! I am a pro photographer and I’d love to do a scenic hill country couples of family photo session for you while you’re here on the property, reach out for more info! Here’s my website summermilesphoto.com

We loved our time at Summer’s tent. The beds were really comfortable and my three children and I had the most memorable stay ever. Summer was very helpful with clear directions to get there. It’s a one of a kind experience and highly recommended! We will definitely stay again if we have the chance. Staying is believing! 👍🏽👍🏽

Summers tent was lovely for our family (2 adults, 2 kids) overnight visit. The canvas tent has a very comfortable bed, and the kids slept on the trundle bed mattress on the floor next to us. We enjoyed the views from the porch in a very safe, private location. The outhouse was nicely lighted, and very clean. Summer’s communication was very clear and answered all my questions about amenities, firewood, etc.

This was such a pleasant and magical experience for us! Summer had very clear directions to the camp/tent and the surrounding areas where you can hike. The bed was super comfortable with soft sheets and warm blankets. Which we didn't think we needed but April weather surprised us with a cool morning! The view was beautiful especially in the morning watching the sunrise. Summer provided everything we needed for coffee and it made our morning that much special for us. Bonus was we had our dog children with us and Summer was very excepting of that. Reimers Ranch was very close as well as Family Business Brewery. The outhouse was very clean and the path well lit at night. There was a washing station too with soap and towels. We definitely plan on staying here again recommend it as well!

Summer's tent and camp site was magical. She thought of all the right touches to make us feel at home. The bed was comfy and the outhouse situation was ideal for an outdoor toilet. Loved the little touches like filling up the trough with cool water and floating wildflowers in it :) we had a great time watching the local wildlife and observing the moon through our telescope. I would definitely visit again!

My Austin friend and I have been camping together for years, and we had a terrific time when glamping last week on Summer's land. The tent is spacious with many amenities that were thoughtful, appreciated and extremely generous. Summer offered appreciated suggestions to supplement what we had shared about our plans. My friend and I were comfortable, safe and relaxed. Thanks so much, Summer! We are both very glad that we got to enjoy our time together at your site!

We loved our stay.. It was a last min trip for our days off. We just wanted to get it away to somewhere peaceful and quiet. This was perfect.
The tent has pretty much everything you need. Soft bed, extra blankets. Small stove to heat coffee water ect.
The view is beautiful.
We highly recommend staying here. There is also a great place to go fossil hunting.

We had an incredible time at Summer's place! We loved being "unplugged" and falling asleep with the sunset and waking up to the sunrise (and the on-site roosters!) In close proximity to Reimer's Ranch hiking, as well as local wineries, distilleries, and breweries!

Pet friendly and fun! Would definitely visit again!
