About

If you're looking for a Texas hill country getaway that offers true peace and quiet, then look no further than The Outpost. This lux vacation home is great for individuals, couples, families, and small bachelor/bachelorette groups. Our unique limestone and log cabin was constructed from various military, historical, and first-responder buildings from all across Texas, including The Alamo, Houston Firehouse #7, and the San Jacinto Monument! This one-of-a-kind property is only 14 miles away from the heart of downtown and only 8 miles from Enchanted Rock State Park. Nestled 2,000 feet high on a private mountain top, these 15 secluded acres are here for you, your family, and your fur babies to explore. There are no other cabins and no other renters in the area. The owners do not live on-site, and you do not have any close neighbors. The surrounding land is undeveloped and open on all sides making it feel like you have hundreds of miles to explore.
The owners of The Outpost are a proud military veteran and a dedicated registered nurse, and our stewardship towards our heroes means preserving their history. We have painstakingly restored many artifacts and identified their significance. Even more fun elements of this cabin include a patch wall (bring your insignia or patches), a coin challenge, and an on-site fund-raiser with souvenirs for sale including engraved bricks.
Almost 2,330 covered square feet (includes the cabin, porches, and the barn), sleeps 8 with 1 fully furnished California king bedroom, 1 queen bedroom, 1 pullout full bed, 2 rollaway cots, and 1 queen air mattress. We have 2 full baths, and the guest restroom has a bathtub. All restrooms and baths are equipped with ADA grab bars. Each room has extra pillows & blankets, luggage racks, floor fans for white noise, space heaters (be careful with these)!, ceiling fans, smoke detectors, satellite TV, and are WIFI enabled along with a WIFI booster. Our full kitchen has it all including a large granite island, a dishwasher, a giant farmhouse sink, a five-burner gas stove/ oven, a microwave, toaster oven, wine fridge, and a bread toaster. We provide all of the dishes, pots, pans, cooking utensils, cups, and all appliances. The large double-door refrigerator/ freezer has an icemaker and a filtered water disposer inside the refrigerator on the left. The living area has a wood-burning fireplace for winter-time snuggling. A full washer & dryer, ironing board, iron, clothing steamer, and hangers are all provided for cleaning your clothes. The restrooms are fully stocked with bathing towels, make-up towels, hairdryers, and toiletries.
We have very large front and back porches with plenty of space. Each porch has 2 large rocking chairs, a barrel table to rest your items, outdoor sockets, 96 feet of string lights for each porch, spotlights, and porch lights. The back porch has a large dining table and a large lounging couch. There are outdoor blankets in the footlocker on the porch for chilly nights. The 6-person hot tub and the 15’ fire pit are to the left of the back porch, and we stock firewood for you to use. The fire pit has a wood rack, ash bucket, long fire pit forks, 6 polywood Adirondack chairs, plus 3 more spare chairs, plus plenty of log stumps to sit around the fire pit and make s’mores, roast hot dogs, or have plenty of cock tails. The area’s roadways and trails are ideal for walking, biking, hiking, ideal for UTV/ ATVs, both on and off the property (Keese Rd. is perfect for a long UTV tour).
A 330 square foot covered barn is available for your use. Comes with a nice elevated concrete slab, fenced in, with a large outdoor TV, nighttime overhead lighting, large propane grill, a portable grill table, a large foldable table, plenty of extra chairs, beer ice-tin, grilling spices, and grilling utensils.
Don’t feel like cooking? No problem - we sponsor Chel Leo Aguirre and he will make the trip to cook you an amazing meal. Book him in advance by calling or by going to: Eat Fredericksburg Texas

The house was amazing! Loved all the military decorations and information. It was EXTREMELY CLEAN! The outdoor fire pit was so peaceful and perfect for star gazing. The owners were quick to respond to questions or concerns. It was very relaxing and I was able to decompress from being in the city. I will definitely book again but this time for more than one night!

Perfect Getaway!

This is our second stay during 2022 at this awesome cabin. We have stayed at probably about 20 or 25 air B&Bs in the last few years, mostly in the Texas hill country. A lot of them are very nice, but this might be our very favorite, this was our second trip during 2022 at the outpost, and we’ve already planned another trip for December.If you notice all the positive reviews about this Airbnb you’ll understand you probably need to book somewhat well in advance, because I predict it’s only going to become more popular.The positives include you’re on 15 acres of land, and the cabin is the only man-made residential type place on the whole piece of land, so it’s incredibly private. It has incredible views and unbelievable sunsets. It also has all the creature comfort you would want inside with streaming TV and a great kitchen with all the stuff you would ever want to cook with; they have a grill outside, they have a great hot tub to sit in at night and watch the stars, and when it’s not so hot they have a really great fire pit.There’s lots of great things I could point out, and this may seem very insignificant, but I wanted to point out that this is the first Airbnb I’ve ever stayed at thad an ice cream scooper… Laugh if you want, but when you need an ice cream scooper, you need an ice cream scooper.But seriously, I think that highlights that they literally provide everything you would want for your stay; all you have to do is go by the grocery store in Fredericksburg if you want to cook while you’re there, and then just enjoy.It’s only about 25 minutes down to Fredericksburg but better yet, if you are a fan of nature it’s only about a 20 minute drive to enchanted rock. You do need reservations for enchanted rock, but it saves you a long drive to get to the park.I don’t have anything negative to say, it’s just awesome all around and that’s why we will end up taking three trips out there just during 2022.

Rent this place!

If you’re a vet/service member with a family, rent it now! Seriously, you’ll thank me.This will be my default listing moving forward any time I want to go to Fredericksburg, get away from the city, or just enjoy the night sky for a weekend.

Beautiful!

Perfect weekend getaway with my Mom and sister. This house is by far the best vacation home we’ve ever stayed in. It’s so peaceful, quaint and private you will never want to leave. The surroundings are breathtaking and the outdoor space is amazing. This unique one of a kind property so beautifully pays tribute to everyone who has served our country. You will enjoy all of the different artifacts and memorabilia in the home. This home provides all of the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay and It’s only 20 minutes away from Main Street in Fredericksburg. So worth the drive! House was spotless and communication with hosts was quick and easy.

Can't wait to return!

Fredericksburg was meant to be a quick, and close stay for us to visit the Enchanted rock on our trip. Instead, our trip was enchanced ten fold because of this airbnb. The host was super responsive, via text. They anticipated and maximized their space to provide a large variety of activities for their guests. I highly recommend a visit. If you love history and true stories...staying here is exactly like living at a museum. Tons of close up antiques. Tons of cute touches to make this place super cozy. I couldn't be more grateful for such an incredible experience.

Much needed getaway!

This place checked all the boxes! We were able to get away without being too far away. The back porch was perfect for morning coffee and watching the sun go down. The hot tub was in the perfect spot to enjoy the fire at night and the lightning storms across the way. During the day when it was too hot to go outside, the riddles and secret rooms kept us busy.The owners put so much detail into this spot! From towel placement to a pooper scooper for the pup being available, I can't imagine it being better! There was so much history wrapped up into every thought out detail and riddle, being impressed is an understatement.We will be back!

Fantastic location!

The location is fantastic. We felt a world away from hustle and bustle. Took a trip into town once but the house has everything you could ever need. The hot tub and view was great, not to mention the breeze all through the day. Made this Texas heat bearable. This home is thoughtful and we will be back. Our dogs also loved the adventure down to the little creek and laying in the nice cool grass!

Awesome house in a great location!

Having stayed in many vacation rentals in the hill country over the years, this one is without a doubt the best. The house is in a great location, not too close to town and not too far. The privacy and views are some of the best features of this property. This home is clean and spacious. The owners and property management company are always just a call or text away, but everything is so great we never needed either of them.The owners of this home have gone out of their way to honor our military and first responders with this home. If you fall in either of those categories or love history, this is the place for you. The owners have also made sure that anyone visiting this home will never be bored.If you’ve looked at this home, don’t bother to continue looking. Book it!

Big Texas Feel!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The memorabilia, the big Texas feel, and the views are truly magical. We enjoyed those FTX sunsets from the hot tub every night after our day of wine tasting and shopping. This place is absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway in Fredericksburg…who wouldn’t want to stay in at Historical Marker!! Thank you for preserving and displaying so many things that matter most - we loved it!!!

Lucky to stay here!

I think this is a fairly new listing on Airbnb, and we feel lucky to have discovered it so soon. Basically, this is just about the perfect Airbnb for what we like. We have been staying for years in airbnbs in the Hill Country, several times a year. This may be our favorite one yet.It sits on 15 private acres, so no one else is there when you stay there, the owners don’t have another house there, and there aren’t any other cabins. It felt like home right away instead of being someone’s guest.The surrounding land is beautiful, the sunsets are unbelievable, the hot tub is great, and there’s virtually no light pollution so you can see a black sky filled with countless stars at night.The cabin has a great history, but has been updated smartly to preserve its historic past while providing for all the creature comforts you could want.The A/C was strong, plenty of hot water for showers (not always the case in remote locations), it has everything you could want to cook, they have a tv to stream - but you’ll want to be outside most of the time because of its beautiful surroundings.And you’re only 11 minutes from Enchanted Rock and about 20 minutes from Fredericksburg.We loved it so much we’ve already booked it again for a much longer stay later this summer. This Airbnb will likely become very popular as more people discover it, it’s just awesome.

Best vacation home!

The house was far enough away to feel secluded, but a close drive into town. The house had everything we needed. So much thought and love in every detail. My daughter loved all of the stories and history. We would for sure book this house again!!!
