Couldn't be more satisfied
So glad I stayed there. These people were amazing! I felt super at home they gave me great directions into town. I was there to work and didn't know the city well. Had a bit of car trouble they sent me to a great guy rite there in Kingsbury. Everything about this trip was awesome and these guys were a big big part of that!!
Artsty concept w/ private camping
Habitable Spaces is a really cool concept and we fully enjoyed our campsite. It was very spacious and private. We had easy access to an outhouse. They had plenty of bricks and concrete slabs, we were able to construct our own fire pit (my boyfriend loved this) that worked great as a stove to cook on and kept the fire going all night. We paid the extra $3 for firewood and got a huge stack of multiple sizes. They also let us clean up the ground for additional wood, so we pretty much had unlimited firewood for a fantastic price. Their "failed art project" was basically a large desk top with shade area was perfect for storing our kitchenware, etc. We had chairs and a couple smaller table tops, so worked out great for us.
A short walk away from a heated shower area, duck pond, goat area and a common house.
The common house has seating, a full kitchen and is climate controlled in case you need a break from the weather.
The hosts are both extremely friendly volunteer firefighters. We felt very safe. They gave us plenty of privacy, but also let us see the newborn baby goats and hang out among their huge communal fire ring our first night.
The location is right in between Seguin and Lulling, so there is easy access to plenty of entertainment. Not to mention the property itself has about 5 miles of hike and bike trails.
Retreat for the soul
We planned to stop for a quick night but after being there a few hours decided to stay two nights instead. Shane and Alison have created a beautiful and welcoming community. Friday night Alison invited us to their bonfire. We got to meet their neighbors and a few of their farm workers. Each were open about their lives and experiences and encouraging of us in ours. Truly incredible people.
The site itself is great. Dirt space for your tent. Fire ring. A table and covered structure for food prep. Outhouse right close with a beautiful mural on the side. The trails surrounding (next time we’ll have to explore more of them) are great too. Something to see around every corner (sculptures, a singing square, wildflowers, etc.)
The communal house and kitchen are incredible. Art everywhere you look. I’ve never been to an artist’s retreat before and was amazed at just how many people had left their unique touch in the space. A sight to see and feel for sure.
Alison also gave us a tour of their home. So inspiring to see how they’ve constructed it. Seeing that and the other buildings on site was awesome. The shower house was our favorite. We took showers both days just to experience it twice. Ha.
My toddler and I also loved interacting with the baby goats and chicks. Thanks for sharing them with us! :)
Obviously I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here. We’ll definitely be back in future travels.
People as interesting as the trees
A little bit hippy. A little bit petting zoo. A little bit rustic oasis. A little bit total solitude. And a little bit glam way out in the woods.
An educational experience -- low-key and unobtrusive, but really interesting.
Art -- in unexpected ways, but truly beautiful.
And because it's a WWOOF (yeah, me neither; search, I had to) -- the folks who greeted us we a little bit unlike our usual friends -- and SUPER interesting and friendly. I'm hoping we can connect on Facebook and follow their journeys.
This was a pretty cool space for a quick last minute camping trip. The property is cool, little (and some big) art projects strung through out it plus animals and a cool garden. Our campsite had an outhouse within approximately 25 feet yet despite the wind we never smelled anything and we found this incredibly convenient. Also there was no shortage of firewood on the property which was cool. Overall if you’re looking for a quirky, cool spot off the beaten path I recommend this.
I used instant book and feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this treasure of a place, and its wonderful hosts, Alison and Shane. The campsite was in great shape with a brand new firepit, and Shane had even stacked some firewood for me to use (so thoughtful). The property is amazing - they created/constructed everything themselves, including the Common House with a grow roof, the expansive vegetable garden, the chicken coops and goat and duck enclosures, a yurt and an A-frame among various other dwellings, and the many trails throughout the property. They are inspiring and creative individuals and I had the pleasure of chatting and having dinner with them, with vegetables fresh from the garden, and learned how farmer's cheese is made! I love their passion for sharing knowledge about living closer to the land, and connecting that with art. The wonderful experience I had was about much more than the well kempt campsite they provided. Hope to see you again soon, Shane and Alison!
Earth children frolicking in nature
This was a really wonderful experience for my children and myself. The host's are genuine and make you feel at home. We enjoyed a cozy fire, safe hiking trails, convenient earth friendly restrooms, shower and running water is also available. I can't get over how much fun my little ones had with the farm animals. They were able to witness goat milking, and pet them. This was a great learning experience for all of us. Allison gave us some tips on gardening and some little tomato suckers that we are thankful for. We hope to enjoy this peaceful earth friendly farm/retreat for years to come.
