From our 40,000-gallon rainwater collection system, to our organic garden and our free-range chickens, we are endeavoring to be good stewards of this property.

All of the water from our cabins is non-chlorinated water, which has been purified through better purification systems than the bottled water you buy in your local store.

We want your experience at Hillside Acres Retreat to be so good you would recommend us to your friends. To us, that means getting more than you expected, having a great time here, and being treated like family.

The idea for the retreat was born of a desire of the owners to utilize their wide travel experiences and gift of hospitality to support those in ministry. The expectation was that at certain times, when available, those who have dedicated their lives to full-time ministry could use these top shelf facilities at a discounted rate to come and recharge. While at other times, the facilities could be used for commercial guests looking for the adventure of coming to the Hill Country. The owners feel this balance will allow for many to enjoy the retreat.

The retreat is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, which is home to many of the tourist attractions that Texas is famous for. Whether, you are coming to see Fredericksburg, which is home to a great conclave of German sites and eateries, Wimberley, to swim in the famous "Blue hole", or you just want to visit the many state parks in the area, including one which is the birthplace of Lyndon B. Johnson, our retreat is located in the center of many of the top attractions that people come from all over the world to enjoy.

We are also right in the heart of The Texas wine region. This is the second largest and fastest growing wine region in the U.S.A., boasting many wineries within half an hour of where we are located.   Our closest wineries are Texas Hill Country (10 minutes), Solaro (12 minutes), and Bell Springs (10 minutes). All other wineries are within 30 minutes.This is a fast-growing hub of many local microbreweries and distilleries too.  And, the famous Salt Lick BBQ Restaurant is only about 15 minutes from here, which you don't want to miss.

You can visit Luchenbach Texas, or how about doing the "Cotton Eyed Joe" over at the Albert Texas dance hall. Whether you desire family friendly, or more of a couple's venue, we have it all in the Texas hill country!  We are 35 minutes from the Austin airport, 30 minutes from downtown Austin, and about 35 minutes from San Antonio.

Please come join us. We are looking forward to meeting you.

Each cabin suite is two-bedroom with central air, a full kitchen, living and dining area, private bath and front porch. Also on-site and in close proximity to the cabins is our new addition- The Pond View House, a two-story, one bedroom home which has a great view of our fishing pond. Our retreat can accommodate groups from 1-32 guests in luxurious beds with high thread count Egyptian cotton linens and quilts.  Our rainwater collection goes through a 5-point filtration process before it reaches the cabins. The purity of our water is hard to match- much better than bottled!
