Have we got a family-friendly Hill Country getaway for you! The Cardinal Bluff Retreat near Pipe Creek is a beautiful rental home perched high on a bluff, where the mountain views and local wildlife are absolutely amazing. It sleeps up to eight people (make that 12 with the optional neighboring suite), and is loaded with amenities and extras you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. There's even a fenced-in yard for your well-behaved pets. It really is like having a resort all to yourself!
Kids love the Cardinal Bluff Retreat! There's a refreshing pool with plenty of seating, and we're just getting started. How about a batting cage with a pitching machine? A custom-built treehouse? A trampoline? It's all here! There are even board games inside to enjoy. Play safe! Children must be supervised while using recreational spaces, and an assumption of risk release must be signed, for your protection and ours. Nature lovers enjoy the 6.5 acres of scenic land here, as well, with plenty of birds and wildlife species calling the surrounding countryside home.
Outside, you'll also find a roomy shaded patio with comfy seating, and two tables for fresh-air dining. Speaking of which, you'll have a propane grill for those BBQ feasts! Relax around the fire pit; it's a great setting for watching sunsets, stargazing, cooking up snacks, and enjoying good company. A seasonal Red Bluff Creek is nearby, where you'll spot lots of wildlife. Smoking is allowed here, but only outdoors.
The bright and beautiful interior of the Retreat has three bedrooms outfitted with six beds, providing slumber space for up to eight. There are also two full baths (one off the master, the other openly shared), and clean bed and bath linens are included. Three smart TVs and Wifi Internet provide entertainment, and every inch is climate-controlled by central air and heat. The kitchen is equipped with modern appliances, cooking ware, and serving ware, and there's also a convenient dishwasher and washer/dryer combo for cleanup.
A cozy suite is available, which provides privacy for up to four more people; it's an apartment-like setup where you'll be close by the Retreat, but will have your own space. You'll be comfortably accommodated with a queen-sized bed, full-sized pull-out sofa sleeper (great for kids), full bath, and fresh bed and bath linens. The suite includes a kitchenette with a mini-refrigerator. coffee maker and an intimate seating area with a TV. It's at the top of a fairly steep flight of stairs, so it's not recommended for mobility-restricted or elderly guests. Ask us for more details.
