There’s just something about staying at a cabin while you’re out in the Texas Hill Country that feels right.

The Hill Country is one of the most popular tourist areas in the Lone Star State for plenty of reasons. Amid its rolling green hills, this region in the middle of Texas has lots to offer visitors, including top-notch wineries, picturesque parks, and delicious local eateries. Since the area is known for its scenic landscape, you can’t go wrong with booking a cabin that offers the best of both worlds: modern comfort and beautiful surroundings.

Whether you want a place that’s a bit more rustic or somewhere a little swankier, these are some of the coolest Texas Hill Country cabins you’ll find for your upcoming getaway.

Why you should stay: Take a break in rustic luxury with nice outdoor amenities.

  • Nearest town: Wimberley
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $300/night

It’s a little bit log cabin and a little bit boutique hotel at Cedar Vista. Located on a private estate, this rental gives you peace and solitude in beautiful Hill Country.

You’ll be able to make yourself right at home inside with special amenities like a fireplace, well-equipped kitchen, and custom native rock showers. The best part about this stay, however, is the outdoor area. Here, you and your crew can gather around the fire pit or hop into the hot tub. There’s also a grill and electric smoker if you want to really lean into your Texas vacation with some barbecuing.

However delightfully secluded you may feel here, you’re actually less than 10 minutes away from Wimberley, a town with popular attractions like Jacob’s Well and Blue Hole Regional Park.

Why you should stay: Frontier vibes meet contemporary comfort.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 5
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $160/night

From the outside, The Log Cabin looks like a remnant of a time gone by with its stone-and-wood structure, porch swing, and rocking chairs.

A fireplace, TV, and kitchenette ensure you have an easy stay.

From the main cabin, it’s a super-short walk to the smaller cabin with the bathroom. It’s all about the soak here –  there’s no shower, but there is a beautiful claw-footed tub. During your stay, expect a complimentary continental breakfast that includes pastries from local bakeries.

Surrounded by fields, this reconstructed log cabin is a quick drive to Fredericksburg where the modern world awaits with plenty of wine tasting rooms, boutique shops, and restaurants to create the perfect Hill Country vacation.

  • Location: Wimberley
  • Sleeps: 2

While this space is designed to perfectly suit two guests, there are two other cabins on the property you can book if you want your friends and family close, but not too close.

Why you should stay: A stylish rental in a serene setting.

  • Nearest town: Johnson City
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $185/night

It’s serenity inside and out at September Ridge Cabin, which is decorated in soothing muted tones. In the lofted bedroom, it may feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud thanks to luxurious bedding and several large windows. Since this Hill Country cabin is on an elevated ridge in a central location, you’ll get some great views of the rolling hillsides for which the region is named.

The September Ridge Cabin happens to be located close to Johnson City, Blanco, and Dripping Springs, so you won’t be short on things to see and do during your stay. Pedernales Falls State Park, Blanco State Park, and Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park are but some of the must-see highlights in the vicinity.

Traveling with more than four people? There’s another cabin on the property that’s available for booking, too.

Why you should stay: A grain bin-turned-one-of-a-kind accommodation close to two state parks.

  • Nearest town: Leakey
  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $250/night

Grain bins are for storing grain – and housing Hill Country getaways, apparently. Or at least that’s the case at this unique grain bin cabin. Inside the cylindrical structure, you’ll find a spacious living space with separate areas for hanging out, cooking and eating, and sleeping. Divided between ten people, this turns out to be one of the more affordable cabins in Hill Country.

During the day, while away some time playing yard games amid the shady trees or bird watching. At night, light up a campfire and see what constellations you can find amid the wide-open Texas sky.

From this rental, you’re within driving distance to two great parks: Garner State Park and Lost Maples State Park. Both offer plenty of trails for exploring, but if you visit in autumn, you have to go to Lost Maples to check out their famous fall foliage.

Why you should stay: Go back in time while being plenty close to dozens of wineries.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $180/night

It’s not every day that you stay in a place with a history dating back 150 years. Francesca’s is unique because it incorporates an old log cabin built by the host’s great grandfather into its design. With a windmill out front, it really feels like you’ve traveled back in time.

That being said, the place is hardly stuck in the past. The timber-frame addition to Francesca’s offers plenty more room for your retreat. The bathroom is a particularly enticing place to relax with its whirlpool tub trimmed in limestone and rock floors.

Since you’re near the famous tiny town of Luckenbach, plan to catch some live country music there one night. Becker Vineyards and Grape Greek Vineyards are also close if you feel like doing a wine tasting.

Why you should stay: Beautiful treehouse-inspired rental in the heart of Hill Country.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $199/night

You may be only three feet off the ground at Sycamore Treehouse, but it certainly feels like you’re nestled in the trees thanks to a clever design that perches the home on a bluff above a creek. The back deck is an excellent place to take in the views from your Hill Country refuge, but if the temperature isn’t right, you can still enjoy the surroundings from inside thanks to the giant living room windows.

All in all, the interior of Sycamore Treehouse is bright and cozy. When it’s time to unwind, you may feel yourself beelining to the king bed up in the lofted bedroom, full-size soaking tub, or rain shower.

Coming with your little kiddos? The hosts are happy to provide some sheets for the couch or a twin cot. This is one of the best cabins in Hill Country if you’re traveling with a big group that all want a unique stay since there are five fantastic rentals available at HoneyTree Farm.

Why you should stay: A secluded hidden gem with panoramic views.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 8
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $239/night

The Hill Country views go on for miles and miles at the aptly named Grandview Cabin since it’s 57 acres of private hillside property. Whether you’re chilling on the front porch or hanging around the fire pit, you’ll be able to appreciate the spectacular surroundings. It’s a guest tradition to take a photo with the view in the background, too.

While you’re wandering the area (you can go for a walk along the gravel roadway through the property or on the trail to an observation blind), keep an eye out for the exotic white fallow deer. For more fun, asks the hosts about the UTV available for rental. You’re also just 15 miles from Fredericksburg’s main strip of shops and wineries in case you want even more to explore.

While it seems like an affordable getaway, the hosts charge $30 per person per night after the first two guests. The base price is just for two people. Plan accordingly.

Why you should stay: A design-forward studio where you can clear your mind.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $185/night

Each design feature in The Holiday seems thoughtfully chosen, from the concrete vanity in the bathroom to the placement of the owner’s artworks throughout the home. Another considerate touch? The complimentary coffee and Topo Chico (Texans’ favorite sparkling mineral water).

While this cabin is a studio space where the living and sleeping rooms are joined, it doesn’t feel cramped thanks to the tall ceilings and big windows on the garage-style door. Plus, you can open up your space with just a push of the button to bring up that overhead door.

Located on 16 acres, The Holiday is less than three miles from Alamo Springs Cafe, which is known statewide for its burgers. While this rental is great for a solo or couple’s vacation, there are two other cabins available at Overbrook Collective if you’re looking for more space for you and your group.

Why you should stay: A historic cabin in the quiet countryside with vineyard-meets-farmyard vibes.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $275/night

If you’re looking to rent a cabin, why not rent one with a history that dates back to the 19th century? On a private working ranch, Clear Springs Log Cabin includes a log room built in 1846 that was home to frontiersmen before being used as a barn for decades. Now, with its modern additions and renovations like a breezeway to a second suite and a whirlpool tub, it’s a homey stay furnished with antiques.

You’re in for a treat here as the hosts deliver a hot homemade breakfast each morning of your stay. For all your other meals, you can whip something up in the kitchen or pop down to one of Fredericksburg’s many restaurants. There’s no Wi-Fi, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your vacation goals.

Also, good news if your dog is your trusty travel companion: dogs are welcome here for a small additional fee per night.
