A mile from Garner State Park and near the gorgeous Lost Maples forest preserve you'll find one of the best swimming holes on the Frio River. Frio River Cabins are open year 'round and cabin number 7 has one of the best views (and it has two bedrooms and a full kitchen)!
Steel I-beams allow for as much clear space beneath the bedroom as possible. The fabricated steel has a rawness that complements the hewn logs. The steel railing, which mirrors the chinking in the walls, is a reinterpretation of local cattle gates. Cherry is used as stair treads and post inserts.
eath, decay, destruction? Wait, what? No, there are no plans to demolish this place now or in the near future – but years, decades or centuries from now if the retreat becomes abandoned it will decay in a visually-dynamic way, wood pealing away from a poured-concrete platform and central cast-in-place chimney.
