Amenities, location, and breathtaking mountain views all come together to make the Bluff Springs Lodge an ideal getaway in the Texas Hill Country! This HUGE and newly-constructed rental property is located on an immense 1,350-acre ranch located midway between the renowned entertainment and shopping spots of Bandera and Hondo. With sleeping accommodations for up to 18 people, this pet-friendly and kid-friendly lodge is the perfect place to pamper yourself and all your friends and family.

"Everything's bigger in Texas" comes to life here: big country, big extras, big fun! Your next large gathering will be comfortably at home here, with everything ranging from socializing on the grounds to exploring Hondo and Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World. It's easily among the top vacation homes for rental, with fun and natural attractions like the Medina River and the Hill State Natural Area within a half-hour's drive.

Outside, the shaded wrap-around porch is abundantly equipped with patio furniture, a charcoal grill, and a fire pit (firewood available at a minimal fee). The sprawling ranch surrounding the lodge assures plenty of privacy, and it's ideal for quiet strolls and wildlife watching. There's no better place to unplug from the everyday grind and connect with nature! While pets are welcome here, they are to be kenneled when inside. Also, smoking is allowed, but only outdoors, please.

The massive interior of this hunting lodge-style abode always takes our guests' breath away! It's roomy and fun, with multiple conversation areas and a large game room stocked with tables for pool, foosball, and poker. Booking here includes the enormous, fully-equipped kitchen, of course-and full catering of all meals can also be yours for an additional fee. The four bedroom suites and 14 beds assure comfortable rest for up to 18 people, and quality bed and bath linens are included. The four full bathrooms are all furnished with walk-in showers. Satellite TV with DVD player and great cell service round out the tech amenities, and ceiling fans and central A/C and heat keep everyone comfortable. Finally, there's a washer and dryer on site, too.

Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.
