We came from Houston in late December for a vacation where we wanted to relax and enjoy nature, but have enough to do to entertain our toddler. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience at Hillside Acres and with the owner Mike. Location: This really was ideal for us to spend a day hiking in Pedernales, a half-day...

This place is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful, yet family friendly place to stay. There are many things to do here all on the property (fishing, swimming, games, BBQ-ing, to name a few. The cabins are well appointed and IMMACULATE! Very restful place.

This retreat is beautiful, tranquil, and has been our much anticipated destination for the last two years. The owner, Mike, was sooo accommodating and so willing to work with us through several scheduling conflicts due to family emergencies and we have been so grateful for his hospitality. The cabins are so clean and cozy and we can't wait to come...

My family and I have gone for the past few years with close friends. We look forward every year to our trip and always want to make the next stay longer. The cabins are very spacious, nicely furnished and the kitchen is totally stocked. The bathroom is even awesome. Highly recommend!

I can't say enough about Hillsode Acre Retreat! I stayed here with my mom, sister and her mother in law for a weekend and we had an amazing time! We rented one of the cabins and all four of us slept comfortably in our own beds. Here was just enough room for us to comfortably sit, sleep and relax while...

We stayed 2 weekends at the HIllside Acres retreat (February 2016 and March 2016) and both visits were EXCELLENT. I love tent camping, but in recent years prefer to stay in cabins as my husband travels a lot for work and requires less work and more relaxation. The cabins, beds, bathrooms, grounds and proximity to Pedernales Falls create the perfect...

We rented the entire ranch out last weekend for our family during a wedding weekend. The cabins and amenities could not have been better! Each cabin is very new and nice with lots of space. There is a grill area with everything you need and a great picnic area. My son caught his first fish in the pond and had...

We just completed a four day family reunion, and the retreat was the star of the event. The cabins were immaculately clean, well appointed, and air conditioned, a must in Texas summer. Every little detail was addressed, from the comfort of the beds, to the quality of the kitchen items. We used the pavilion, as well, for dinners and couldn't...

Really enjoyed the cabin. Bathroom setup is brilliant! The cabin was so nice and extremely clean. Traveled here for a wedding in Dripping Springs. There were 3 groups of us in 3 of the cabins. Lots of things to do without ever leaving the cabin. Great setup for a family re-union - swimming pool, lots of games, fire pit, BBQ...

Our group was delighted to find five beautiful, cushy cabins for our night at Hillside Acres Retreat. Nice kitchens, cushy beds, picnic tables under the big oaks - we had a great night. Perfect for a visit to Pedernales State Park or Enchanted Rock, or just to get away to look at the stars in the Hill Country.
