Blue Getaway in the Hill Country


Property Description

Kerrville is one of the largest towns in the Hill Country, and it's a great place for a fulfilling family escape! The Blue Getaway just outside of town is a fantastic setting for your Hill Country vacation; it's a kid-friendly space with comfortable sleep space for up to 16 people. Both sides of this new duplex-style guest home feature extras like hot tubs, fire pits, Wifi, electric fireplaces, a brand new outdoor games area, and more. It's a robust escape with the best of both town and country!

One thing unique to Kerrville is the Guadalupe River Trail! This scenic greenbelt winds alongside the river, dotted with parks with playgrounds, exercise facilities, picnic areas, and more. The Guadalupe is also known for the tubing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing that folks enjoy on and in its waters. The Blue Getaway puts you close to all that adventure!

The Blue Getaway is a new duplex, colored a brilliant light blue that blends in nicely with those pretty Hill Country skies. Ample parking is available in front of the duplex. It's divided into two sections, the Blue Retreat and Blue Oasis, both nicely matched and furnished with comfort in mind.

(Note: the Blue Retreat and Blue Oasis are two halves of a whole, and are designed to mirror similar amenities and basic setups.

Whether you're sipping coffee or sharing stories with your family, there's plenty of space to do it outside! Both sides of the Getaway have a spacious open deck with a large umbrella for shade, and a pergola section of the deck that's permanently shaded. There's also plenty of comfy outdoor furniture where everyone can enjoy the fresh Hill Country breezes in comfort. To add a magical touch to your nights, the pergola area is fitted with sparkling string lights and a cascading waterfall feature. There's more intimate and private space on the smaller deck on the second level, outside the master bedroom.

If you have kids, or kids at heart, the outdoor games area will get their hearts racing! Its centerpiece is a fountain, surrounded by a carnival's worth of recreation. Equipment and tables are set up for foosball, air hockey, corn hole (bags), tetherball, basketball, and ping pong. Most of the gaming areas are shaded, and there are tables for relaxation between games. Keep in mind a small fee may be required for some of the games, and this area is shared with others.

All the interior spaces of both the Retreat and Oasis are totally new! They're tastefully outfitted with comfy living area furniture, electric fireplaces to relieve those chilly nights, and central air to soothe during hot Texas summers. For more climate control, there are ceiling fans throughout the Getaway, too! The TVs here are Roku-ready, and you can access streaming accounts with the Wifi service included. Gleaming, modern appliances fill the kitchen, which includes cookware, serving ware, utensils, and glasses. Whip up your morning joe with the combo coffee maker, with both regular and K-Cup brewing options. What's more, you'll have comfortable meal space inside and out, with dining tables both indoors and out on the deck.

A spiral staircase winds up to the second floor. (The spiral stairs are somewhat narrow, and may pose an issue for the mobility-impaired; a wider staircase outside offers access from the deck to the second story.) Upstairs, there's a main bedroom and a loft. The bedroom has a soft queen-sized bed, and the loft has two bunk bed setups, with a total of four twin beds. Add to that a queen-sized sofa sleeper, and there's slumber space for up to eight people. That's just on one side of the duplex; double that for sleeping space for 16 guests total! All the beds here feature adjustable Posturpedic mattresses for added comfort. Each side has two clean full bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, equipped with glass-walled shower stalls (for a total of four baths). All sleeping and cleanup spaces include clean linens. If your stay here is going to be three days or longer, washer and dryer access is also available.

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!
