About Richard and Ruby Franco
Ruby and I originally came across this property with other family members as we were looking for a place between Austin and Dallas where we could spend our Easters together as a large family.. We had this property for a number of years just clearing and working on the property with family and friends until one Easter when Grandpa Sanchez showed up with a shell of a building that he built in his backyard and transported up here in pieces. Ruby and I finished this building, which is now the bunkhouse. Our builder and friend Pat Small built the small kitchen and bath for us . Grandpa has since built the pavilion that we now use as well.
Richard and Ruby Franco purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Richard and Ruby Franco chose Hillsboro
This location is perfect to meet our family for weekends together and such, since we live in Austin and Ruby's sisters and their families live in the Dallas/Ft Worth Area. They also own 3 traditional cabins in this area as well.
What makes this Cabin unique
The design of this cabin is very different from most vacation rentals as the bunkhouse is separate from the kitchen and bath, and connected by a wooden walkway. I guess what we have is more of a small campground / compound than a traditional cabin. Our Cabin /Compound is the last in a series of 4, with our cabin designed for singles, couples, or small families.

Great Easy Getaway from the City!
I booked this cute place as a getaway for my Husband's birthday/New Years and it was perfect for us. We wanted somewhere secluded, outdoorsy and simple and this place was just that! Since it was a little chilly out this time of the year, we didn't get to enjoy the lake too much but we took advantage of their fire box outside and let our pup run around! The owners were really great with communication as well. I definitely recommend!
Alaina, So glad that you all had a good time. lted happy birthday to the husband! I love being at the cabin when it's chilly also. The lake is amazing when birds start migrating. It's beautiful especially early in the morning and for the sunsets. Hope you can make it back soon!
