All Cabin Amenities

The Basics

All of our cabins are equipped with free WiFi, however, being our rural location, you might not always have the best signal. Hopefully, you’re not here for the WiFi, anyway! Haha! We also have Direct TV in all the cabins. And, of course, A/C units for the hot summers and propane heaters for the winter months.

Complimentary Tour

Cabin guests receive tickets for the tour for free! For obvious reasons – we have made a few amenity changes. The guided tour and petting zoo are only available during regular weekdays. However, you can drive-through in your own car to still have loads of fun with the animals on weekends and holidays!

As cabin guests, you can enjoy the drive-through as many times as you’d like! However, you can only hop on one guided tour during your stay if they are available!

The tickets supplied to you at check-in are not transferable to other guests and must be used during your stay if you chose to enjoy the drive-through.

Resort Pool & Waterfall

When you rent one of our cabins, you have access to two resort-style swimming pools!

Our original pool has a small wading pool that’s perfect for your little ones and a deeper pool for older kids and adults. The pool overlooks the center pasture and lake area, where you can watch all of the roaming animals, as well as the breathtaking view of the surrounding hill country. It is also equipped with a beautiful waterfall filtration system.

The second pool is brand spankin’ new! It is more centrally located between the cabins. It has a tanning shelf and built in seats! It also slopes down to about 4 foot deep! This pool is placed right next to our petting zoo and kangaroo exhibit! So you are sure to have animal entertainment, even as you’re cooling off in the pool!

Per Governor Abbott, both of the pools are currently available only to 50% capacity (this is about 20 people per) – and it is on a first come, first serve basis! 

Playscape

We recently had a brand spankin’ new playscape installed! Unfortunately, our slides are on backorder… but, this bad boy is ready to go otherwise!

Community Patio

Here you’ll find a billiards table equipped with pool sticks and balls. It’s perfect for some friendly competition.

Not a pool shark? That’s OK, you can still enjoy our projection screen TV! It’s fully equipped with DirectTV channels and surround sound.

Not to mention, you’ve got an amazing view of our entire cabin area and surrounding pastures of freely roaming critters.

Cabin Area Petting Zoo

In this small petting zoo just for cabin guests, you’ll encounter free roaming deer, pot-belly pigs, ducks and geese. You can also get up close and personal with our kangaroos, turkeys and chickens! This is a special encounter that only our cabin guests can enjoy.

This petting zoo is separate from our main petting zoo at the gift shop. Keep in mind, the main petting zoo may not be open during your stay due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, this little one at the cabin area definitely is! In fact, a lot of the petting zoo animals in the cabin area like to escape… don’t be alarmed if you see a little ol’ deer on your front porch! Haha!

Catfish Fishing in Lake Carlisle

Lake Carlisle is situated directly in front of the cabin area… and it is stocked with huge catfish! You can safely walk through the petting zoo, down a winding rock path, to find the perfect fishing spot! You may enjoy fishing here but it is catch and release. We don’t supply any fishing gear so you will want to bring your own poles/bait/tackle.

Outdoor Grillin’

All of our cabins are equipped with a personal charcoal barbeque pit. Bring along your favorite utensils, charcoal and lighter fluid!

We also have a Texas-sized wood-fired barbeque pit by the community patio thats perfect for entertaining a larger crowd.

Additionally, all cabins have personal picnic tables for outdoor dining!

Nightly Bonfires

Of course, we have a fire pit so that you can setup for a quiet camp fire to cook up some s’mores or hot dogs.

We provide plenty of wood behind the racks, along with a container with starter fluid.  You can usually find a stick lighter in your cabin, but you’ll never be too safe to bring one along with you.

Hill Country Views

All of our cabins have personal sitting areas on the front deck. These were constructed with the hopes that you would enjoy the beautiful surrounding Hill Country with your loved ones. We want you to see exactly why we picked this location for our beautiful animals to call home.

Our favorite view can be found atop the top balcony of the Elk Lodge!

We work hard to maintain all of these free amenities and keep our as pricing low as we can. However, we do reserve the right to alter these amenities at any time, without notice as we see fit for our establishment!
