Our family spent a peaceful family vacation at Hillside Acres Resort. We occupied our days fishing, swimming, playing in the creek, star gazing, and playing their outdoor games (i.e. washers, bocce ball, frisbee golf, tetherball, etc.). There was something for everyone in the family! We did take excursions during two of our days- Dripping Springs and Johnson City were both... More

Our family recently visited Hillside Acres Retreat for our family reunion. It is truly a retreat with something for any age right on the property. We also enjoyed the short drive to Pedernales Falls. The accommodations were very comfortable and the staff was inviting and friendly.We will definitely rebook for next year.

We rented all the cabins for a family wedding being held nearby. I was the first to arrive, and although I arrived in the dark I was immediately impressed with the property. The cabins were fantastic. Very clean, comfortable and well thought out. The entire property has been well planned. The cabins have big covered porches and there is plenty... More

Hillside Acres is a great place to get away to the hill country for some needed peace and quiet. We used it as a base to explore Pedernales Falls SP, to spend the day in Fredricksburg, and to meet up in Austin with friends for dinner. The facilities are great. The setting is wonderful, with plenty of room for kids... More

Just outside Dripping Springs on the road to Pedernales State Park, the six cabins are immaculate and provide a perfect place for all the family to enjoy if you want to be well away from the Interstates. Lots of games as well as a small fishing lake for the active and a nice wooded deck overlooking the grounds for reading... More

We just loved staying at Hillside Acres! It was the perfect little retreat for the weekend and super close to our friends' ranch wedding. We just loved the farm fresh eggs that came with the cozy kitchen. And the backyard games were a pleasant surprise!!

The price was great, the location easy to find, and the cabin was clean and beautiful! Bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a twin bed on top was perfect for us and our five-year old. The other room had a queen bed in it, and there was an extra mattress under the bunk bed in the other... More

The retreat center was absolutely perfect for our needs. The cabins were very comfortable, the dining/meeting hall was such a great place to hold our meetings and the activities were tons of fun for the students!

A 2 night father and 13 year old son get away for the weekend was perfect at these well appointed cabins. They are close to all the area attractions for hiking, nature and exploring. Easy to make the arrangements, easy to stay and very very peaceful time once you arrive. Wonderful star gazing. Highly recommended.

Stayed two nights with six other "families". Top quality accomodations with a great deal of thought having gone into the cabins, how they are equiped (fully!) and the grounds. Lot's to do for all ages. Even enough space for a cricket match! Thanks for helping us have a great time.
