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 from Hunt, TX.
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 shallows .
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, adults 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 at Summer camp.
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.

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