Bandera Sunset Suite


Property Description

The red carpet is out for you here! This suite (one of two) shines as one of the best among Bandera holiday rentals. The options for entertainment are practically endless: want to kayak, tube, or fish on the Medina River? A quick half-mile trip opens up all the events, cuisine, and night life of Bandera. Whether you choose all or none of the above-maybe you just need a calming setting in which to decompress-the Sunset Suite delivers.

The shaded wraparound porch here is private to your suite and offers a great vantage point for Hill Country views, and it's generously appointed with plenty of tables and chairs. It's the perfect setting for a quiet and romantic getaway and a fire pit (with wood provided). Peek down the hill at the pretty town of Bandera, give the Hill Country a good look, or kick back for a well-earned rest. If you'd like to have a smoke, it's allowed here, so long as you keep it outside.

Hardwood floors and matching furnishings instantly give the suite a homey and inviting feel. The bedroom has an adjoining full bath with a shower, and the cloud-soft queen-sized bed provides restful sleep for two. Equally soft bed and bath linens are provided, too. The living area features two plush recliners, along with satellite TV, wireless DSL Internet, and a CD player. Central air and heating keep the cabin's interior comfortable, no matter what's going on outside. A fully-equipped kitchen includes all essential appliances and cooking and serving ware. There is also excellent cell phone coverage here.

The cooling waters of the Medina River, the scenic walks and drives around Bandera, the wildlife, the night life, the shopping-it's all at your fingertips at the Sunset Suite. Backroads Reservations would be delighted to help you book this beautiful hilltop hideaway-give us a call and book today!

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!

What guests are saying...

We were greeted by and older gentlemen as soon as we got to the house. He wanted to make sure we knew where everything was like lights above the sink, how to work the remote, and talk about a museum near by. The place was very cute and quiet. The view was spectacular. Everything was clean with the exception of something sticky to the right of the refridgerator. It was our 1st time in Bandera, TX, but we know it won't be our last.
We truly enjoyed staying at the place. Super clean & comfortable. The owner is so friendly and came by to check on us! We will come back to Bandera!

Great place and great location. Very clean and great host!
The cottage is part of a larger residence that sits on a property with a main house. The guest portion of the cottage has a wraparound porch that overlooks Bandera and offers wonderful views of then hill country. The name “Sunset Cottage” is an apt descriptor for this charming retreat. The owners are delightful and greeted us shortly after arrival to ensure we had all we needed. He checked in on us each day. The cottage is well-appointed and has everything short of food you would need for a stay. It was impeccably clean and well maintained. The cottage has a fire pit complete with wood, fire starters, and forks for your s’mores adventures. The owners urged us to visit the Bandera Natural History Museum which is about a 7-min drive from the cottage. They have purchased passes for guests to use and we are so glad we listened to him! The museum was a labor of love of Juan Infante and all the specimen within the museum were from his private collection. It was fascinating and the volunteers so knowledgeable! Kids would LOVE this place - this 50-year-old kid did! Do yourself a favor - if you’re looking for a solo or romantic getaway, considering staying here. You won’t be disappointed. My husband and I will be returning!

Highly recommended.; beautiful location and hilltop views; especially the sunsets from the covered porch. Warm personable hosts made our stay wonderful; quiet; peaceful. - just what we were looking for. We will be back for another visit.

This is one of two suites in a cottage on a ridge that overlooks the beautiful hill country horizon south of the town of Bandera. The cottage is situated in a small rural neighborhood near the intersection of State Hwy 136 and Ranch Road 1077. As you can see from the pictures, there is a porch along the side of the cottage which you will have all to yourself, and it opens out to a large yard. When we sat quietly on the porch or looked out the window, we would occasionally see deer and other wildlife cross through the yard especially at dawn or near sunset. Also the iconic County Courthouse, although about a mile away, is clearly visible in the distance from the porch and through the windows. The owners live on another part of the property, not in the cottage. They are wonderful people and respect your privacy. Because of the location, it's possible to access Bandera City Park, Hill Country State Natural Area, and most of the area ranch resorts without driving through town. The State Natural Area is about 20 minutes away. On the other hand, if you drive through town you can reach Love Creek Orchards about 20 minutes to the west, and Real Ale Project and Hill Country Cellars Winery, which are less than 10 minutes to the east. We stayed here 4 days and had a really wonderful time!
