11th Street River House

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

When we have guests visiting the Cowboy Capital of the World, two things stand out among their requests: closeness to the nightlife and shopping of Bandera, and access to the Medina River. With that said, we're delighted to present the 11th Street River House! It's a kid-friendly and pet-friendly vacation home on the river, and it's only a short walk to the 11th Street Cowboy Bar and all the shops and attractions of this great Hill Country town. It sleeps eight and is a perfect family getaway!

A two-minute walk across a pretty meadow behind the 11th Street River House leads you to the swimming, tubing, kayaking, and fishing fun of the Medina River! (Please keep in mind the steps to the river are a little steep, and for your well-being and ours a signed release of liability is required to stay here.) Covered parking is on-site for your vehicles, and motorcycles are welcome!

The backyard here is fenced for the safety of your little ones and pets, and there's a great fire pit for socializing and snack roasting, surrounded by outdoor chairs. There's a large double-sized picnic table back there, too, and a big charcoal grill and smoker combo for BBQ feasts (all you need to supply is charcoal and lighter fluid). For open-air relaxation, you'll find a screened and shaded patio out back, complete with rocking chairs and decorative hanging lights to add a little sparkle to your evenings.

The natural-light-infused interior of the 11th Street River House is climate-controlled year-round with central air and ceiling fans, and the spacious and comfortable living area features a large-screen TV that's Roku-ready for streaming your favorites! Plenty of modern appliances, cookware, and table service for eight, round out the amenities of the full kitchen, with a dining area conveniently nearby. There are even baby toys and a highchair available for your youngest bundle of joy! Wifi Internet service supplies connectivity to the whole house, too.

With a complement of three bedrooms and six beds (one king, one queen, and four twins), all in your crew are assured comfortable and restful nights here! All sleeping spaces are draped in fresh linens as part of your stay, and bath linens, as well as necessities, are included in both full baths. The master bath includes a roomy shower stall, and the hallway bath features a shower and tub combo, highlighted by a classic clawfoot tub! You'll also find a walk-in laundry room for even more cleanup convenience.

What guests are saying...

House was comfortable for our small group. Older home but well updated. Challenging route to the river via a long wood staircase and some distance across mildly grown up bottom land. The Medina is one of the prettiest rivers in Texas. Not at it’s best during this long dry period we’re having. The host was very responsive and the house was very clean. The area pleasantly surprised us with two very interesting museums, fun shops and solid small town Texas restaurants. 15 minutes to Medina,TX for apple cinnamon soft serve at Love’s Apple Store and about 20 minutes to Camp Verde for a nice restaurant/store and beautiful grounds to enjoy. Our trip was a success!
Me and my family had a great time ! Loved the views we had and loved just sitting out and watching the sunset with my family . Definitely a nice place to just disconnect and enjoy nature . Will definitely be booking again as there was so much more we were wanting to look at but this was a last minute trip .
The house was cute with lots of character. Perfect Basecamp for our weekend running Bandera 100k!
We greatly enjoyed our stay in the 11th Street River House. The house was immaculate and had a great layout, so you can tell the owners take a lot of pride in their property. The river access was a little further of a walk than we expected, but the location was excellent. All of the places we wanted to go to were within and walking distance. We had a great stay and will definitely be coming back!
Walking distance to all the fun spots in town. Gorgeous huge backyard. Loved it.
The home was perfect and exactly what was expected. The kitchen included everything needed. The living and dining rooms were comfortable. Nice touches like soft blankets for the unexpected cold snap and wonderful towels. We had a great time. Thank you.
