Family Cabin On 28 Acres--Huge Deck Where You Can See For Miles.

Welcome to Girraween, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Near Dripping Springs and Pedernales Falls Park; close to Austin, Fredericksburg, and 290 Wine Trail. 28 acres of land to explore; huge deck for enjoying the outdoors. Stargazing required! Girraween is the perfect escape for families, book clubs, girls' weekend away, or couples' retreat. Girraween means "Place of Flowers" and is our tribute to the beautiful Hill Country wildflowers. The house is an open design, split level consisting of three bedrooms, two baths, a combined living room/dining room, and a cozy kitchen (about 1250 square feet plus a 400 square foot deck). The 28 acres of surrounding rustic land and spring fed creek are wonderful for exploring and bird watching. A wood burning fireplace and a large deck that overlooks the land will assure that you relax and enjoy your stay.

Are you looking for a true Texas Hill Country get-away? Where you must strain to hear the sound of a car? Where the stars are so bright that you feel like you should reach up and touch one? Come spend a weekend or a week at our Hill Country getaway—Girraween. Named for a national park in Australia, Girraween is an Aboriginal word that means ‘place of flowers’. The 28 acres of surrounding rustic land and a shallow, spring fed creek are wonderful for exploring and bird watching. The house has three bedrooms and two baths, but the best ‘room’ of the house is the Texas sized deck that sports a beautiful view and is perfect for sleeping and stargazing. Near Dripping Springs, Johnson City, and Pedernales Falls Park; close to Austin, Fredericksburg, and 290 Wine Trail.
