The owners were top notch. We lacked for nothing. The personal cozy touches everywhere showed their thoughtfulness.. Loved the trail and was well marked--did early one morning in 28 degrees! we had no idea a continental breakfast was included-and wait until . A great place with caring owners you see the huge kitchen wonderfully appointed

So beautiful and comfortable! It took a little bit to figure out where we were as we arrived after dark and there were no lights, but we finally found it and the key to the cabin came with a flashlight which was very convenient. Plenty of parking in front of the cabin and it was nice and cozy. The beds were very comfortable with lots of blankets and the view was gorgeous. The shower is very small so taller/larger people be advised. I wish we could have spent more time there but we were on a time crunch (and also trying to stay ahead of a snow storm). Would definitely stay here again!

This was my third visit. The cabins are in excellent condition. There is a large lodge building where you can gather. For astronomy or just simple stargazing, it's tops. Although only 3 hours from Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio, the skies are between bortle one and two and a flat, wide and unobscured observing field adjoins most of the cabins. The hosts are gracious and generously sharing of their family's long term jewel of a west texas ranch. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, and the quiet is a refreshing change to the number and volume of auditory distractions that are part of our everyday lives. We stayed in Spiny Star, and it is sited so that you can have breakfast on the deck watching the morning sun but have a shaded dinner in the evening. Full kitchen, well equipped, roomy, clean, and nicely decorated. All and all, one of my favorite destinations.

We stayed at the Spiny Star cabin for a family vacation and had the whole place to ourselves! The Spiny Star is very close to the pool, which was nice. The pool is above ground with a deck, I think it is above ground due to the wildlife all around. It is a very nice pool, deck with table and chairs and lounge chairs as well. There are lights for nigh swimming also. The lodge is also a nice amenity with pool towels, a large dining table.
