Who wants to escape city life for nature? Says, everyone! Getting away on the weekend out in nature has its perks of solitude, breathing fresh air, exercising, and more.

If hiking, cooking your meals on a fire pit, camping with full amenities, and getting away from the hustle and bustle of city traffic interest you, then you’re ready to camp in a cabin near you! Camping, to me, is a great way to relax and let go. Bring a hammock, find two trees, and relax with a book. Spring is around the corner, making it a great time to get away from the city and enjoy the outdoors.

Tiny Cabin Rentals In Texas
A little over an hour from the city, there are Getaway cabins in three different Regions of Texas – Dallas, Houston, and Austin / San Antonio, where you can roll up your sleeves and play in nature or, better yet, take off your shirt! On top of that, you’ll have modern amenities, including a bathroom with a shower, a mini-refrigerator, a nice comfy queen bed(s), and a tiny kitchen – everything like home. Just think of it this way – it’s a home away from home—but smaller!
Great news if you have a dog! Getaway is pet-friendly. You can bring your dog(s) and cat(s) for a small fee, and they even leave treats in the cabin. I’ve brought my dogs twice, and yummy biscuits were waiting for them when we arrived.

East Texas Piney Woods – LaRue, Texas
Put your phone away and turn off all wifi and build a fire. It’s that simple. We enjoyed hamburgers on the grill made by Brody. He was very excited about how they turned out – yummy! This is when you want to get out of that hammock I was talking about above. Hopefully, you can spot two trees, or perhaps you have the kind of hammock on its own stand. Either way, bring it along!
Things to do in LaRue and the Area:
There’s a zipline course not too far from this camp called New York Texas Zipline Adventure. Brody and I have zipped there twice. It’s impressive, and we wouldn’t mind returning for another round. The daring ones zip the whole nine lines!
• Athens & Tyler are not far away, with plenty to do in each town.
