Planning a family gathering, or an outing for a good-sized group of people? Seeking a spot where your crew can enjoy the attractions of the Cowboy Capital of the World, and the fun and adventure of the Medina River? Stay right on the banks of the river at the Casa del Rio River House! With Bandera just a short journey down the road from this unique guest house, all the city, country, and river excitement of the Texas Hill Country will be yours at this beautiful and luxurious riverfront rental.
This kid-friendly and pet-friendly rental offers great amenities and natural beauty for your group of up to 12 people. Also, if a couple in your group would like a separate and more private hideaway, the 1930s-era Casita on the grounds is available for them; please let us know if you would like to take advantage of this intimate cottage option. Please know this property does include several stairs from the decks to the meadow and walking paths below, and may not be safety-appropriate for kids under five or those who require wheelchair access.
Three shaded decks offer multiple places from which you can view the meadow, riverside, and Hill Country beyond, and wildflowers and butterflies add seasonal splashes of brilliant color. The decks are adorned by plenty of outside furniture, and there's even a romantic swing down by the river! Swim and tube on the Medina from your own private access, and kick back and enjoy a hearty outdoor meal afterward with the gas and charcoal grills provided. The grounds here are tobacco-free, inside and out.
The four bedrooms and multiple beds and futons in this vibrantly colorful hacienda-style guest house comfortably sleep up to a dozen people-and if you book the Casita as well, up to 14. Three full bathrooms include shower stalls, and all the soft and comfy bed and bath linens you'll need are provided. Ample seating is available in the two roomy living areas and dining section, and the kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, and regular coffee maker. Smart TV, Wifi, great cell service, and climate-controlling central air and heating fill out the list of the tech and entertainment amenities here.
The unique accommodations and comforts of the Casa del Rio River House will play memorable roles in your Hill Country holiday! Call or message to Backroads Reservations to book this amazing property!
