Texas Travel Guide
"As a travel writer you sometimes see so many hotels, condos, and
other lodgings that it all becomes a blur, and if you don't take notes
you begin confusing them. There is no danger of that happening with
this place; it's truly one of a kind. Crane House is an attractive and
comfortable house with two bedrooms (one king and two twins), two
bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a large screened porch. But it could
have been a shack with bunk beds and an out-house, and it would still
have been special because it offers those rare commodities of privacy,
solitude, and natural beauty, all in abundance. It sits alone on 824
acres bordering the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, with a mile of
coastline on St. Charles Bay (use of kayak included). The owners are
in partnership with the Texas Nature Conservancy to protect more than
200 acres of wetlands that are part of the property. And, as if that
weren't enough, a pair of whooping cranes are daily visitors to the
backyard, and to view or photograph them you have to go no farther
than the porch. Besides, how many hotels have a guard horse looking
after the place?"
