What a delight! A gorgeous setting, the only cabin there so we had the run of the place. Horses, chickens, donkey, dogs and a cat to visit. A pretty lake for fishing or swimming, water slide, paddle boat, kayaks, a bass boat, hiking and only 6 miles from Bandera. Be sure to take the drive to Tarpley and Vanderpool. So... More

My husband & I had never been to the hill country of Texas before our visit in April. I just happened to come across their website and it sounded interesting, so we booked.

It's very old with original beams, fireplace and tin roof. It feels so cozy, but had absolutely all the modern conveniences we needed -- a big comfortable bed, full kitchen, living room with...

Spent 5 days here with wife and 8 yo son. Everyone had a great time and there is so much to do. My son loved helping to feed the horses, collect chicken eggs and was put in charge of locking up the chickens every night and releasing them in the morning. A large herd of Axis deer roams the pasture... More

Cool Water Acres was too good to miss! When in Texas, you got to get here or else you have missed a lot in life! This incredible hotel has the best service and friendly staff who really makes you feel at home! And the good food makes it more remarkable. Cool Water Acres is the best in TX.
