GREEN ACRES is a boutique retreat nestled in the "far east Austin" town of Elgin, Texas (25 miles east of Austin). For folk looking for a place to retreat and experience “glamping" (glamorous camping)--this is the place for you! We have poured our love of hospitality & design into our land with a desire to provide an intentional and sustainable retreat for our guests. We offer two yurts, a vintage Spartan trailer, a vintage Airstream trailer & an "Eco" Cabin to rent, all listed separately, with a barn, outdoor kitchen, corral, animal field, bathhouse, and walking trails for all guests to enjoy. Green Acres is family friendly - but not child proof. Lots of room to play and enjoy the animals, ping-pong, etc, so please just be mindful of kids when out here.

**Weddings & Photo Shoots Welcomed.** Find us on the web for more info.

We also do not recommend walking in the woods off any obvious paths as we do have wildlife on the property we want to protect (as well as avoid any poison ivy and potential snakes). WIRELESS: Hopefully being "unplugged" is part of what attracts you to staying at Green Acres so we do not have wireless access... but most cell phones do work on our property. Cell phone coverage is good with most carriers at the Property. There is no landline phone.
Other things to note
With the charm of glamping in the country comes the sounds that make it naturally awesome. It is calm and peaceful but different seasons bring crickets singing you to sleep or perhaps the far off coyote howling at night and the occasional "hoo hoo-ing" of owls in the distance. The birds, hawks and neighbor’s roosters will greet you in the morning. There are earplugs in drawers of each yurt if you would like to use to block the nature noises.
- Please remove shoes before entering the Yurt and place them in the designated bin immediately inside the Yurt. Additionally to respect our other guests and neighbors, we ask for quite hours from 11pm - 7am
Someone from Green Acres will always be available for you via phone / text, and if available from Austin will do our best to meet you at some point through out your stay. Before arrival we provide a full list of info via Airbnb or Text to show you the ropes of the land and answer any questions you might have. Our property connects to gray water in our forests, so we only use eco friendly products. We provide recommended shower essentials, soap, dish washing liquid as well as detergent. You are welcome to use your own products as long as you comply with our biodegradable, eco-friendly requirement.
