I booked this space for a university club team to stay at while competing at a local tournament. A great space to keep everyone together and connected while staying in the San Marcos area.

Cowboy Chapel was a great place to spend our Labor day weekend. We were a group of 11 people and we were comfortable and enjoyed the space. Tom and his wife were great hosts and answered all of the questions that we had. We hope to return sometime in the future.

Tom's place is much and far better than what you see in his profile. The Cowboy Chapel is big but the whole property offers so much outdoor space and he made himself available if we needed him.
