Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our wooded retreat is nestled among old growth oaks in the Potter's Creek area, just five minutes north of Canyon Lake. It is the perfect weekend spot to unwind, decompress, and get back to what's important in life. The scent of cedar will reinvigorate you, while the green hills and crystal clear rivers will call your name. Strategically located, you will be less than an hour away from Pedernales, Blanco, Wimberley, Fredericksburg and all they have to offer.

The space
In light of the current conditions regarding COVID-19, we continue to follow rigorous cleanliness practices which are always in place, so rest assured our house is always deeply cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized between stays!
One of the most striking features of the Emerald Gem House is its garden. Shaded by old growth oak trees, you can walk up and down the concrete pathway and admire the native vegetation. Texas Mountain Laurel trees easily sprout from fallen seeds, and the native plants we've added are low maintenance but attractive to the eye. We have outfitted the gutters to a rain barrel, so we encourage you to water our plants if you ever notice they need some Love!
Sit down at the porch, listen to music, and relax. Use the charcoal grill or light up the chimenea for those chilly nights out!
In the kitchen we have snacks, and a Keurig® coffee machine, (you can either use the disposable cups in the carousel or the refillable pods with Cafe Bustelo.) There’s also a Kerrigan carafe to brew up to four cups.
You'll also have access to whatever is in the fridge. You will find cups, glasses, pots, pans, and utensils in the pantry and drawers. The pizza pan is ready in the oven. We provide shampoo, body wash, linens, etc. Most everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible!
If you want to bring your pets, please send us an inquiry before hitting "Instant Booking." We do charge $25 per stay for each well behaved, house trained pet. YOU MUST DISCLOSE THE EXACT NUMBER OF PETS, otherwise we will have to involve AIRBNB and a negative review may be given. Once you send us the inquiry, we will send you a special offer reflecting the extra charges, or you can send pet fee via any of the popular pay services. PLEASE do bring its own blanket and towel, and do not let them on the beds.

Where you’ll be

Canyon Lake, Texas, United States

We are located in the North Shore of Canyon Lake, Potter's Creek Area. The neighborhood is secluded and serene. The road that leads to it from Highway 306 winds up on down through oak and juniper studded hills. It is a beautiful sight to behold! Beware of the plentiful deer roaming the roads.
