Sample country life at Cabin at Crooked Creek

Life in the country moves at a slower pace, just like the resident longhorns. Three miles outside of the small Texas Hill Country town of Llano, sits Cabin at Crooked Creek, a charming, tin-roofed getaway near a wet-weather creek — exactly what one would expect of a home on the range. 

Cabin at Crooked Creek welcomes guests with a homemade continental breakfast consisting of local meats and eggs fresh from its chickens. 

The rustic rental comfortably sleeps four. The first-floor bedroom features a full-size, vintage cast-iron bed topped with a colorful quilt. The upstairs loft is fitted with a pair of twin-size, log-post beds suitable for cowboys and cowgirls of any age. The heart of the cabin contains the kitchen, a farmhouse dining table, and a relaxing sitting area. The bathroom is also located on the first floor. 

Step outside to enjoy a lazy morning coffee, take in a spectacular Llano County sunset, or cuddle up for an evening of stargazing on either of the two covered porches. 

In addition to the cabin’s cattle and chickens, keep an eye out for the wildlife roaming the range, such as deer, turkey, and owls. Those preferring more activity can wander into nearby Llano to shop the square, discover a new favorite eatery, or sip on local brews. Cabin at Crooked Creek is in the heart of wildflower country. Each spring, the Llano County landscape erupts with colorful blooms and visitors. Fun fact: Beneath all of that beauty is the Llano Uplift, a geologic wonder of its own.
