7 Canyons Ranch - Wapiti Room


Property Description

7 Canyons Lodge - Wapiti Room Sleeps 4 in 2 queen beds and has a private bath (downstairs)

The 7 Canyons Ranch is home to Seco, a wapiti (elk); Solo, a majestic European stag; and Zeus the zebra. Their presence here is celebrated in this lakeview vacation home, in the Wapiti Room! While they call the place home year-round, when you visit, you'll enjoy such human amenities as a hot tub, wireless Internet service, and a great big BBQ pit. Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World, and Tarpley are Hill Country towns nearby, so you'll be close to the best of both city and rural enjoyment!

The 7 Canyons Ranch is also centrally located in the midst of several popular spots in the Hill Country, such as tubing on the Medina River, Garner State Park, and the Hill Country and Lost Maples State Natural Areas-all are within 30 minutes. On the grounds themselves, there's a private lake for catch-and-release fishing (seasonal), several hiking trails, and several great vantage points for bird watching and wildlife viewing. The Wapiti Room is a kid-friendly space that's perfect for a family getaway!

The Wapiti Room is situated on the main level of the 4,000 square foot 7 Canyons Ranch Lodge. The lodge itself is a great place to meet and share stories with your fellow travelers; sit a spell and create new memories around the "Liar's Pit" fire pit! There's also a BBQ pit, and the relaxing and bubbling warmth of a hot tub to enjoy. Inside, belly up to the bar or try your skills at the pool table, or just unwind around the fireplaces and big-screen satellite TVs in the two enormous den areas-the TVs also have DVD and VCR players. Shared lodge extras also include private conference areas, and use of the lodge's enormous caterer's kitchen. Smokers are welcome, but light up outside only, please.

Elk and deer mementos adorn the warm and cozy interior of the Wapiti Room, which-like the rest of the lodge-is climate-controlled with central air and heating. Two plush queen-sized beds sleep up to four in luxurious comfort, and you'll have your own private bath with a shower. Soft bed and bath linens are included when you book here, and for added convenience, there's also a mini-fridge and Wifi Internet service in your room.

The Wapiti Room is a family-friendly vacation rental that perfectly balances luxury, location, and fun at a budget-friendly rate. If you would like accommodations for a larger group, Backroads Reservations can also book additional rooms at the lodge, or the entire lodge itself, for your crew.

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!
