Small houses at Pipe Creek

unique feature: Greg and Jamie Otterman’s first tiny house in nearby Pipe Creek was so successful that they recently opened a second tiny house known as The nest. The couple stock farm-fresh eggs from their own chicken coop along with other breakfast supplies in the kitchen and are known to provide special treats like s’mores kits for special occasions. The homes are built to help guests enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings, and the Ottermans have also created two private hiking trails for visitors to enjoy. The getaway is a perfect place to feel “in the woods” while still being close enough to drive to Fredericksburg, Bandera, or Helotes for a day trip.
