One Step-In Shower, one Bathtub, and one Clawfoot Tub will assure you that the kids who went swimming will be clean by dinnertime and the fishermen (& women) in your party don’t go to bed smelling of fish.
Fully Stocked Kitchen
This kitchen has all the pots, pans, & cooking utensils you need. Crockpot, Keurig, and blender are all available for your use as well as the usual kitchen appliances, including microwave and dishwasher. There is a large pantry so you can do your shopping on the way in and not have to head into town for a week.
Relax on our comfy sofa while soaking up the AC in the midday heat. The open space living room/dining room with WiFi, Firestick, & HDMI enabled television allows you to keep the group together, whether you are watching a movie, playing an epic board game, or cooking a large meal together.
Star Gazing on the Back Patio
This is where the stars come to shine. After grilling up dinner on the gas grill & roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, take the telescope to the patio and watch the stars. See if you can name the constellations, or just convince someone that “the Fluffy Bunny is totally a constellation”. We also have horseshoes and cornhole for you to play on the lawn while you wait for the stars to appear. Week-long family tournaments are encouraged.
Dawn on the Front Porch
This is the quiet time. The time you get to have for yourself. Get your coffee, sneak out the front door, and enjoy the sounds of the world waking up in the dawn from the chairs on the porch.
You can read, do puzzles, play games, sit around the firepit, bird watch, animal/wildlife watch, or just hang out to rest and enjoy the surroundings!
Pleasanton is just north of Hindes Hideaway and hosts the Atascosa Flea Market every Friday in front of the Atascosa Livestock Exchange. You can also shop at the Royal Farmers Market on Saturday for fresh produce and heavenly baked goods.
Choke Canyon Reservoir is about a 50-minute drive to the east. Known for great boating and fishing, this is also a stop for many migratory birds and is teeming with wildlife.
If a trip into San Antonio for a day is on your mind, it is about an hour north. You can check out the Missions Complex by biking between them along San Antonio’s world-famous River Walk. Remember the Alamo! It is worth the drive to town.
Chaparral Wildlife Management Area is nearby as well and known for its hiking and wildlife, however, please check the website for seasonal openings.
Guest will have exclusive use of the house on the privately gated property. The house is secluded but we ask that you stay in the yard in order to respect our neighbors and their property.
Pack your hiking boots, swimsuits, and camera equipment if you're planning a trip to Choke Canyon or Chapparal. This is going to be a getaway you want to get back to, year after year.
We have Hunting & Fishing Connections in the area and are very resourceful! If you are interested in booking a private paid hunt or fishing trip nearby, ask when you inquire about booking our lodge!
A guided hunt on a nearby private ranch is an excellent way to make sure that your party enjoys their time out in the brush while also getting the best that the area can offer.
We have contacts that specialize in:
Exotics (like Axis, Blackbuck, Fallow, White Sika, Nilgai, Gemsbok, Oryx, Red Stag, Aoudad Rams & Paint Rams)
Whitetail hunts in South Texas sometimes book up to a year in advance so please inquire when booking so that we can confirm that your dates and hunting group can be accommodated by a local guide and ranch.
We will release guide and ranch contact information to you upon booking our lodge so that you may finalize your private hunting trip!
We also have Choke Canyon Fishing Guide Contacts.
We have Catering recommendations! Let us know if you’d like to skip cooking and have a local home-cooked meal served right in the lodge! You must plan ahead but we are happy to share our catering contacts with you after you book.
