And during the days, you can cool off in the river when it gets a bit too hot.

The cabin has lofted ceilings and an actual loft above the living room (though it’s only accessible through the bedroom.) The largest bedroom has a king bed and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and the second bedroom features a full bed with an additional en-suite bathroom. The home is bright, modern, and airy, and the hot tub has views of the river. What’s not to like?

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 1–3 nights
  • Pets allowed: no

Step back in time at the gorgeously renovated Buckhorn Cabin, which oozes with Wild West charm. Built in 1790, the owners restored and reassembled the cabin in its present location. Modern and colorful decor complement the natural wooden elements, and the outdoor hot tub adds a perfect touch of luxury. But it still feels like stepping back in time thanks to the tin roof, exposed wood beams, and hand-built stone fireplace.

This unique Texas home is just a few blocks from the center of Fredericksburg, a charming little town known for its German heritage and fabulous wineries. Though there’s much to see in town, make sure to spend at least one evening relaxing in the home’s hot tub, surrounded by ivy-covered fences for privacy. There’s a lot to love about the Buckhorn Cabin!

And when the sun sets, turn the hot tub jets on high and soak away your worries.

Cedar Vista is an insanely picturesque getaway overlooking striking views you can admire from the outdoor deck, hot tub, and nearly all windows; the home is made to show off the landscape.

There are two grills, a large hot tub, a stone fire pit and seating area, and covered picnic table area for drinks and dining.

Wimberley and Canyon Lake are a short drive away for shopping and city explorers. For families willing to drive further out, other favorite Texas destinations such as Austin, San Antonio, and Fredericksburg are all about an hour away.

The Emerald Cabin is a top pick for couples planning a weekend of romance in the countryside. It’s ideal for couples who want to sip wine together under the stars in the bubbling warmth of the hot tub. Later in the evening, curl up together on the couch to watch a movie or play cards by the fire.

The property’s prime location outside Wimberley puts major Hill Country attractions like Marble Falls, Canyon Lake, and downtown Austin within an hour drive, so making day trips a breeze. Of course, thanks to the sunken hot tub on the deck, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t venture too far from the home during your stay.

When you’re not hiking around the Palo Duro Canyon State Park, you can shop for antiques at the downtown Canyon shops or learn more about the region’s history at the Panhandle-Plains History Museum, all just a few minutes from the property.

Why you should stay: Pet-friendly family home named after the home’s incredible views of Fortress Cliffs.

  • Sleeps: 5
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Pets allowed: yes

Perched on the west rim of the Grand Canyon of Texas, the Fortress Cabin offers a direct view of the cliffs of Palo Duro Canyon. Unlike some homes closer to rolling hills and rivers, this Texas cabin rental really makes it feel like you’re in the desert or Wild West. Often considered one of America’s best state parks, it’s hard to believe that Palo Duro Canyon isn’t part of the national parks system (yet!)

Aside from boasting an elegant hot tub with striking views, you can relax on the seating area overlooking the canyon or take advantage of the wood-burning fireplace in the living room, porch swings, and BBQ grill. The home is part of a luxury cabin resort and often has wildlife like bobcats, coyotes, and deer roaming nearby. Because the cabin is 25 miles south of Route 66, it’s an excellent option for travelers driving along the historic route.
