Boerne Mountain Retreat

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

10 minutes northeast of Boerne, nestled on a high-elevation perch in the heart of the Hill Country, lies the Boerne Mountain Retreat, a roomy vacation rental with the most stunning views you'll see anywhere. The best of town and country are here, too! Boerne's nearby for shopping, nightlife, and fine foods, and the Kreutzberg Canyon Natural Area, the Cave Without a Name, and Guadalupe river tubing are all short drives away. This luxurious guest home is kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and has all the hi-tech amenities, too.

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

This rural nature lover's paradise is just five miles from the splendor of the Kreutzberg Canyon Natural Area and the mysterious Cave Without a Name. For an adventurous float down the Guadalupe River, there's an outfitter just a half hour away who rents tubes, kayaks, and canoes, and will drop you off and pick you up for a tubing trip.

The shaded patio here is decked out with stylish outdoor furniture, and it offers breathtaking elevated views of the forested Hill Country below. The mist in the trees in the mornings is something you'll never forget! The patio's perfect for socializing, and it also has a safety-screened fire pit. Help yourself to the charcoal grill for a hearty meal in the fresh Texas air. For the safety of your pets and little ones, the property is securely fenced.

Inside, you'll find genuine Texas decor, with hundreds of stars representing the Lone Star State. The whole space is accented throughout with gorgeous handcrafted cedar woodwork and beamed ceilings. Two huge living spaces feature plush furniture-one with a fireplace! Four bedrooms sleep up to eight on feather-soft king and queen sized beds, and the three full bathrooms include either a tub or shower; one has both. Fluffy bed and bath linens are also provided. The full kitchen features modern appliances and cooking and serving ware, including a wine cooler and beer fridge! Central air, heat, and ceiling fans will guarantee your comfort. The TVs here feature DVD players, Roku, and cable, and Wifi Internet service is also available. Finally, there's a convenient laundry room.

The Boerne Mountain Retreat is the perfect holiday getaway for your crew, able to accommodate up to eight people without ever feeling crowded. Let us at Backroads Reservations set you up with this amazing vacation rental, with all its style, amenities and comforts-not to mention the ideal Hill Country location!

What guests are saying...

WE enjoyed our stay very much! The house was better than described! What stood out to me was how well outfitted the house was as everything and more was there. We have family in Cordillera and will most likely use this place again as it is so close via the back gate of Cordillera. It really was nice and was a great value in my opinion. I booked directly with yall and that was super easy. I don't know why people use VRBO - I had a very bad experience with them and won't ever go back - kinda like Bud Light!
We really enjoyed the house and found it to be very relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed making meals there together, watching the deer and birds come through, and seeing sunsets off the back porch. There was plenty of games, puzzles. The snack basket with nice bottle of Texas wine was much appreciated and helped tide us over until we made it to the store. We definitely plan to come stay again and hope we would be welcomed back. My niece did take some photos while we were there, so I’ll see if she can send a few for me to pass along.

The view was unbelievable and the house was fantastic. So much space. Very close to wineries and other activities. Our stay was wonderful. There was nothing we could have asked for that wasn’t there. The view was amazing. It was easy to get to all of the wineries Thank you so much for the accommodations
Great stay & awesome communication with hosts. Would highly recommend! Spacious house, very comfortable beds, & amazing back porch!
This home was fantastic. It's even better than the photos and perfect for a family. We were able to enjoy the outdoors even in the Texas June heat since the patio was shaded and breezy at all times of day! The furniture was so comfortable, as were the beds. There's a desk with all of the outlets you could need that was perfect for getting some work done. The hosts are amazing. They thought of everything from dish soap to board games, and the decor is great too.
