Welcome to Luck of the Draw, A Non Smoking Vacation
Rental - A PRIVATE HOME located on the South Fork of
the Guadalupe River and surrounded by beautiful 6
acres of natural habitat.
Approximately 9 miles west of Hunt, TX on Highway 39.
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 and relax in the
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. Spring flowers are usually in full bloom in April or early
May and last through late June or early July. We supplement the native
plants by sowing native flower seeds which attract butterflies and humming
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, adults may just want to float in place and listen to the
wonderful rapids and canyon sounds.
We are 9 miles west of The Store in Hunt, TX on Highway 39 and therefore
close to area camps such as Mystic, Heart of the Hills and La Junta. Camps
on the north fork such as Waldemar and Camp Stewart take about 15
minutes. No other cabins are on the 6 acres. It is a perfect place to stay
and have your own private use of the beautiful Guadalupe River.
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 30-45 minute 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.

Come relax and enjoy the unique beauty of this hill country haven.

spectacular. It was probably one of the
best times I have had with the kids in ages.
Thank you again for the use of your home –
it was just what the doctor ordered. Take
care and I hope we get to spend some time
again at LOD. "
