Blue Retreat in the Hill Country

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

For your next family getaway, indulge your crew in a vacation rental that offers the best of both town and country! The Blue Retreat serves up access to Hill Country towns like Kerrville and Bandera, while at the same offering plenty to do right on-site. It's a brand-new and kid-friendly space that sleeps up to eight people, with amenities and extras like a luxurious hot tub, a fire pit, huge outdoor games area, and even an electric fireplace. Maximize your time away in this amazing guest home!

Kerrville is known for fine wineries, shopping and cuisine, and the Guadalupe River, and all are close to the Blue Retreat! The scenic Guadalupe River Trail runs alongside the river, threading its way through green parks. All of Kerrville is yours to discover and enjoy!

Outside the Retreat, an umbrella-shaded deck with plenty of furniture is next to a covered pergola section adorned with outdoor lights and a waterfall. There's also a cozy second-story deck off the master bedroom. Pretty Hill Country views are all around; relax and enjoy them in the hot tub! Gather around the fire pit, and treat yourself to a BBQ on the gas grill. There's also plenty of parking!

The young at heart love the outdoor games area; its central fountain overlooks a carnival's worth of recreation! Equipment is set up for foosball, air hockey, corn hole, tetherball, basketball, and ping pong. Most gaming areas are shaded, and there are tables for relaxing. Keep in mind a small fee may be required for some games, and this area is shared with others.

The guest home features central air for comfort. All is brand new, from the furniture and electric fireplace to the Roku-equipped TV (accessible with Wifi provided). Tables inside and out mean you'll feast in style, and the full kitchen has new appliances, a combo regular and K-Cup coffee maker, and lots of food prep space. If your stay is three days or longer, laundry facilities are also available. Access the second floor with the spiral staircase inside, or by the easier-to-use outdoor stairs.

Exciting vacations require some rest, and you'll sleep in style here! Two bedrooms with a total of six beds with adjustable Posturpedic mattresses provide sleeping space for up to eight (one queen, four twins in bunk setups, and a queen sleeper sofa). A full bath on each floor has glass-walled shower stalls, and fresh linens are provided for bed and bath. If you'd like more space, let us know; the full duplex can sleep up to 16!
