Welcome to Luck of the Draw, A Non Smoking
6 acres located on the South Fork of the Guadalupe
Our vacation rental is really our second home. Located in a
canyon on the shallow headwaters of the Guadalupe River, this
one story, wheelchair accessible house was finished in
November 2006. The river is approximately 250 feet from the
house. There is no road between the house and the river.The
scenery is spectacular, and our deck is a wonderful vantage
point to witness the different hues that are cast on the canyon
wall during the day.
We are not a subdivision so the property is still "natural".
Occasionally, wonderful wildlife ambles down to the river. You
are welcome to take as many pictures as you like, however,
please no firearms! You might like to fly fish the shallows for rock
perch or small bass (catch and release, please) or just sit in the
shallows and let the minnows nibble on your toes.
Bird watching is a joy! Be sure to keep your camera ready.
Our vacation home is open to persons who enjoy being outdoors. The
grounds are natural. The Fall colors are usually gorgeous. And if that is
not enough color, Lost Maples State Park is a 45 minute drive from the
Luck of the Draw Cabin.
The river at its deepest is about 4 feet deep so it is perfect for young
children. The shallows allow exploring for tadpoles, minnows, small
perch, and bass. Of course, you may just want to float in place and
listen to the wonderful rapids and canyon sounds.
We are 9 miles west of Hunt and therefore close to area camps, but
still provide privacy. No other cabins are on the 6 acres. It is a perfect
place to stay when dropping off or picking up your child for Summer
Walkers and cyclist love this area for its winding roads, beautiful
landscapes and scents of native mint growing in the river. Lost Maples
State Park is a short drive as is the quaint German town of
Fredericksburg which has wonderful shopping all year round and the
first class Nimitz Museum and challenging Enchanted Rock.

Vacation Now !
|Late March and into the
Summer, the LOD has lots of
native flowers. We sow seeds in
the late Fall and reap the
rewards (given rain) in the
Spring and Summer.
|The house is approximately 250 feet from
the river. The deck is a great vantage point
to see wild life or kids playing in the river.
There is no road between the house and the

"hole" where kids like to play. A great
place for adults to talk and still keep an
eye on youngsters.
