Enter Morning Star Ranch and fall in love with the original 1860s features within

This traditional log cabin was originally built in the 1860s and shows signs of the years it has faced, with an attractive, distressed look to the exterior. We love rustic elements in log cabins – it is one of the reasons we return to vacation in the woods time and time again.
Located in Fredericksburg, TX, this charming log cabin is situated on 160 acres of oak-filled land. Morning Star Ranch is listed for vacation rental on HomeAway, giving you the opportunity to explore Texas Hill Country from an attractive, rustic base.

This ample-sized cabin has a well-proportioned floor plan which includes two bedrooms and one bathroom. The interior is filled with interesting features which are sure to inspire you. Shall we go inside?

The unsophisticated exterior is a welcomed sight. We like the look of log homes which have aged well. Although the whitewashed exterior is a little different to what we are used to, the rustic nature of the home shines through.


Every log cabin should have a front porch with rocking chairs – it has become an institution and a necessary part of cabin culture.

Inside the cabin, we notice the same distressed feel lines the walls of the interior too. It creates a welcoming, homely scene. The antique wood-burning fire is a pleasant addition for cozy, relaxing evenings.

The cabin is decorated with attractive furniture which is in-keep with the overall tone of the house. The comfy sofa is the perfect place to recharge after a long day hiking.

The kitchen and dining area are separate from the main living room.

The kitchen has plenty of cool rustic features which give you a constant reminder of where you are.

The cabin has two bedrooms, the master located on the upper floor. It is a cozy space which is finished with beautiful antique furniture to create a delightfully rustic sleeping space.

The second bedroom also houses a queen-sized bed, meaning this small cabin can comfortably sleep four adults.

The bathroom in Morning Star Ranch is tastefully designed with a classical theme which creates a timeless space.

The bathroom even includes a built-in whirlpool tub!
