Welcome to our little corner of the Hill Country! OESTE is an 11-acre retreat home to 10 Sioux style Native American Tipis and a re-imagined Texas farmhouse from the 80s. The tipis make the perfect place for camping in comfort. Located just 45 minutes west of Austin, in Dripping Springs, TX the tipis make for a unique way to experience life in the heart of the Hill Country.

Please read the entire listing prior to booking to make sure it's a good fit.

The space
We aren't a "glamping" type of campground and we do not strive to be. We do believe in comfort but this experience is not "glam". If you require lots of hand-holding and attention to detail, then this just might not be the best fit for you.

Located off the beaten path (Literally. The road down is not for the faint of heart), the tipis allow you to surround yourself with nature while not having to sacrifice the basic modern amenities such as toilets, showers, and a space to cook up a meal. We aim to provide an unpretentious space for you to relax and enjoy. Over the past couple of years we've worked to develop the property on our own with hopes of getting to share our place with others.

Each tipi is a separate listing (we have 10 tipis total). All of the tipis feature a bed, fresh linens, side tables, large cowhide rug, heating blanket (winter months), lighting, seating area, 20-inch fan, coffee maker. We provide a couple of complimentary waters, a light snack and some fresh ground coffee.

El Sol Tipi has a queen bed+ twin cot and can sleep up to three. If you would like a king bed, visit our listings El Corazon, El Arbol, El Mundo or La Rosa. If you need a tipi that sleeps three check out El Sol or El Nopal. Tipi El Sol and El Nopal can accommodate up to four guests but you would be required to bring a cot or air mattress to accommodate your fourth group member.

A property map with each tipi location can be found in the photos.

Other things to note
Things to know about staying in a tipi:

The road- We are located off the beaten path. The road to the property is an unpaved, caliche road. We recommend SUV or truck for getting to the property. Low clearance vehicles will have a hard time. You've been warned :)

Phone signal- Oeste is an ideal place to disconnect. It's also especially easy to because there is no phone signal. (WiFi at the bathhouse if needed)

Environment- This is a rural property and we are surrounded by nature. If you have ever been in a tipi you know that tipis are not completely sealed from the environment. Please know the hill country is home to scorpions, crickets, spiders, and other critters. It is possible for them to find their way into your tipi. We encourage leaving the lights off in your tipi when not in use.

Heating/Cooling- All tipis with a portable AC will say so in the listing title. During the hotter months, we recommend guests check-in closer to sundown and plan activities around Dripping Springs during the day when the heat is at its peak. Visiting one of the local swimming hole is a great summer activity! While some of the tipis do have a portable AC and fan, the systems have had a hard time keeping up with the heat and better function once the day begins to cool off. Please keep in mind, while there is a portable AC this not keep the tipis cool like a traditional insulated abode. All tipis do have a 20-inch fan and you are welcome to bring extra cooling or heating sources. In the winter months, all beds have heated blankets (no heaters, but you're welcome to bring an electric heater if you would like). Please do not move portable AC units from their location– they are set up on outlets designed to support their energy load.

Dark skies- Please note we have limited lighting on the property in order to preserve the beautiful dark skies of the Hill Country from light pollution. So pack your flashlight or headlamp if you foresee needing it!

​Rain- A traditional tipi has a large opening at the top with smoke flaps. There is no way to seal the tipi and rain can get in. Because of that, we cover the beds with plastic tarps. If it happens to rain, please cover that bed back up with the tarp. If you’re concerned with any of your belongings getting wet, just put them under the tarp as well. The tipis are rain or shine. If you need to reschedule your stay due to weather please let us know asap and we will work with you to change the day of your stay.

Pets- We are pet-friendly! Dogs actually stay free :) They MUST be house trained and well behaved. We ask that you please pick up after your pet, keep them off furnishings, and keep them leashed in order not to disrupt other guests. If you think they will bark or be a nuisance to other guests please leave your fur friends at home.

Children- We do not allow children under 3 years of age. In the past have had little ones keep other guests up all night which is not fair to others. While we do welcome families, we have not done any baby-proofing of anything in terms of making the tipis specifically family-friendly. The experience is similar to a camping experience at a park. Gravel paths, wildlife etc. Keep in mind, wildlife encounters, there are stairs at the bathrooms, an overlook area where children could slip, trip etc. With that said, we leave it up to parents to decide if their little ones are equipped for this adventure. Please be respectful of other guests looking to have a relaxing stay.

Rules:
- No smoking in tipi
- No littering (this includes cigarette butts)
- Quiet hours are from sundown to sunrise (WE TAKE THIS VERY SERIOUSLY)
- NO WANDERING ONTO NEIGHBORING PROPERTIES. Please do not go wandering outside of our gates. People may be hunting on their property and trespassing is against the law. Neighbors have strict surveillance and will report you to the authorities.

If you break anything or find anything broken, please let us know! We understand that accidents happen—we just need to know about it so that we can fix it!

Location

Dripping Springs, Texas, United States

We cannot express how wonderful Dripping Springs is. The people, the food, the drinks and the scenery– it's hard putting into words just how great the Hill Country is.

OESTE is a place where we welcome everyone. It's the perfect place for wedding goers or anyone looking to enjoy all the Hill Country has to offer.

Our neighborhood is pretty amazing, and includes all sort of points of interest: wineries, breweries, distilleries, an olive plantation, some of the best bbq in Texas and other great local restaurants.

There are more than 30 wedding venues in the area– it's no wonder Dripping has been names "The Wedding Capitol of The World".
