Welcome to The Springs!
The Springs is truly a beautiful oasis to be enjoyed by our guests year round, no matter the season. With a private swimming hole, acres of lush land, swimming pool, and a community fire pit, The Springs offers plenty of space for guests to retreat from their daily routines. From renting individual cabins to reserving the entire property, The Springs is the perfect place for hosting retreats, family events, weddings, and more!
Most locals would agree this property is Leakey’s prize jewel, a ten acre private retreat with great frontage of Leakey Springs. We also have a private pool and newly renovated event center, including indoor pavilion, event tent, outdoor patio and music stage. We can accommodate up to 88 guests in our recently renovated 1-2 cabins and 3-4 bedroom houses. See our lodging details for a breakdown of our sleeping capacities. Our on-site property manager tends to every detail while you are on site enjoying your relaxing weekend getaway, retreat, or celebration. Less work and more play for you!
At The Springs, we are dedicating our business practices to sustainable solutions and alternatives that further promote community and environmental wellbeing wherever possible. You will find eco-friendly products such as our natural and nontoxic toiletries in reusable bottles that are found in each cabin as well as t-shirts we have for sale made out of the environmentally friendly bamboo! We are always seeking to become more environmentally friendly, as we feel called to do our part to protect the beautiful Texas hill country and beyond.
As guests walk down from the cabins and houses to the springs, they are encouraged to wade around in the beautiful cliff waterfall. Once at the springs, there is a stone dam you can walk over, as well as a wooden bridge connecting guests to the back side of the property. There are stone steps that lead directly into the springs and a stone bench next to the steps for those just wanting to dip their feet in the refreshing water.
Relax in one of the wooden loungers on the bank of the springs, or enjoy a picnic at the tables under the giant Cypress and Oak trees, many of which date back hundreds of years, when this land was prized by the indigenous tribes living in the region. There are also large Mexican blankets made out of recycled material for sale in the front office if guests want to spread out in any area of their choosing!
In the evening guests are encouraged to stargaze around the community fire pit located in the center of the property, where they can connect with their friends and family and meet other guests who are enjoying the same time and space.
The Springs is at the heart of the Hill Country. Drive five minutes south of Leakey to Happy Hollow and be among the hundreds of folks who come to float the Frio River every weekend from spring through fall. Or drive just another five minutes south to hike or float through Garner Park or enjoy their nightly dances, or experience a summer concert at House Pasture.
Our amenities include free WiFi fit for remote work, outdoor swimming pool, private natural swimming hole, a rope swing, private nature park, non-smoking rooms, facilities for disabled guests, free parking, air condition, heating, lounge chairs, sun umbrellas, outdoor fire pits, individual grills at each cabin, flat-screen TV’s, meeting and banquet facilities, private porches, nearby hiking and fine dining, and more. The Springs is a great place to disconnect, but for those who need to be connected we do have cell service and great wifi. Those with AT&T will have the best cell coverage on the property.
We can park up to 75 vehicles on the property, with 25 parking spots on pavement for our lodging guests and up to 50 vehicles off pavement adjacent to our event center. We also have four hookups for RVs or food trucks for events.
We look forward to hosting you, together with your guests, whether family, friends or fellow retreators. Come enjoy the beauty and the healing waters at The Springs and unwind with us in the heart of nature! We can’t wait to see you!
