About The Bird's Nest

Welcome to The Bird’s Nest, a one-of-a-kind “primitive glamping” experience that will take you to new heights. Your journey begins with a short walk down uneven stone steps to your multi-level accommodation.

Perched on a 400-square-foot deck The Nest offers an amazing view of Horseshoe Bay. The covered portion of The Nest is designed with an open concept, not completely waterproof as it opens to the hammock lounge and sky tent above. There is a small area of the nest that we call “The Egg” - a place to stay dry should there be rain. The Egg can be curtained off to utilize the air conditioner or heater – but please keep in mind that The Nest is still a tent with thin walls so it can still get warm on a hot summer day (evenings are usually cool) and can be cold in the winter. (We do provide an electric blanket on cold nights.)

The Bird’s Nest offers you four unique places to lay down and spread your wings:

  1. Main room has a queen-size bed, mini fridge, Keurig, and microwave.
  2. “The Hangout” underneath the nest has a hanging bed with queen-size mattress.
  3. The Hammock Lounge, above the main deck, is a great place to take a nap.
  4. And at the very top of The Bird’s Nest is “The Sky Tent”, a suspended tent where you can sleep under the stars!

The Bird’s Nest has a private restroom and shower located at the top of the hill (about 50 steps away).

Guests are provided with a bin that includes a double sleeping bag, a set of sheets, blanket, and two pillows – you get to choose which of the four sleeping spaces you would like for the evening! Two additional guests (4 total) are permitted with additional bedding fee.

***Note: The Bird’s Nest is for sure-footed adults only. The stone steps leading to the nest are uneven, and climbing a ladder is involved to get to the Hammock Lounge and Sky Tent. Additionally, the walkway to the Hangout (under the deck) may be slippery and uneven depending on the weather. Also please note that The Bird’s Nest is not as insulated as some of our other accommodations, and could get warm on a hot summer day, and cool during a winter evening. If you have any questions about this unique accommodation please ask. The Bird’s Nest has electricity (and places to charge your devices) but does not have water on the deck (but there is a private restroom with a full-size/hot shower up the hill). Although there is a gate to the Bird’s Nest, we ask that you do not leave any valuables while you are away.

What Our Guests Are Saying...

"Beautiful property and wonderful hosts. Special view of the hill country and surprising accommodations. Depending on where you stay, you can have a view ...of the stars or an air-conditioned tent. Too fancy? Sit on the porch and enjoy the Texas countryside without being too far from swimming, hiking, or even a nice restaurant with Bay View a 2-minute walk. Note: I stayed here thanks to family connections, but consider this endorsement to be true and honest."

"A dream come true. My husband surprised me to stay in this clear crystal ball dome to experience glamping for our wooden anniversary. What a beautiful, you can enjoy 365 degrees view from the mountain and lake, the view is spectacular."

"The Stardome suite is a must! So glad I was able to experience this jewel. The host was amazing and very helpful. Pictures don’t do this place ...justice! The view is awesome and the vibes were amazing! Really enjoyed staying the night at this amazing place. Will have to come back in 2022 this suite stays booked!"

"This place is so beautiful and has been a dream for me and my wife's 10th anniversary! It is clean and is nice to be away from a traditional hotel or resort."
Bruce McDowellDecember 2021
"I attended the Open House for Hozhoni on the Hill on April 3rd and was awestruck by the sheer romance of it all. There is great tenderness ...and sweetness in how Hozhoni on the Hill nestles into the natural granite nooks and crannies and amidst the native trees, meeting the land like a lover. There is a strong spiritual component from being in that space where the sky meets the earth and the peace that comes from being beside a large body of water. Thoughtful design and attention to small details like telescopes in the main rooms and glowing orbs in the gardens intertwine romance and fantasy with the voluptuous sensuality of private outdoor bathing niches with soaking tubs for two. Bring an open heart and spirit and prepare to fall in love - with yourself, with the world, with the one you bring - as I did, falling in love one more time with my husband of 30+ years."
Paloma GuerreroMay 2021
"We stayed here last weekend and absolutely loved it!! So peaceful and relaxing. We got to meet the owner Bob and he was really nice. ...Loved the hospitality and just everything about Hozohni. Absolutely amazing place to stay with a beautiful view. We'll definitely be back to visit soon!"
