Casitas at Madrona Ranch - Casita


Property Description

Perched on a hillside overlooking Red Bluff Creek, the Casita at Madrona Ranch has everything you need for a relaxing family getaway! This is one of the best waterfront cabin rentals we have at Backroads Reservations, with its amazing views of the Hill Country, quiet rural setting, and convenience to the shops and attractions of nearby Pipe Creek and Boerne. Inside and out-from the tree-lined property to the rustic beamed ceilings, this sweet little cabin has to be seen to be believed!

With mountain views, water activities available close by, the pet-friendly and kid-friendly Casita has all the makings for the best weekend getaway. The 14-acre property provides plenty of space for exploration and wildlife watching, and it's remote enough to enjoy in relaxing solitude while still having access to awesome towns within a short drive. Miles of scenic Hill Country roads surround the property for a motorcycle or car tour!

Deer often stroll right up to the shaded patio that fronts the Casita, and there's plenty of patio furniture. Red Bluff Creek is the perfect setting for cooling off, or just unplugging for a while (water levels vary based on seasonal rain; please check with us). Share the soothing quiet with your loved ones around the fire pit and have a Lone Star barbecue on the grill provided. Take in the views on the spacious ranch with a leisurely hike and look up in wonder at the crystalline stars on clear nights.

Facing the patio is a glass wall that gives panoramic views of the picturesque hills. The warm, wood-accented interior includes a full bath with shower, a king-sized bed, and an additional king-sized trundle, which sleeps up to four comfortably. All bed and bath linens are included, and the kitchenette features a microwave, coffee machine, mini fridge, and two-burner cook top. Laundry facilities are also available. Comfort is provided by box heat and air conditioning, and there's a satellite TV, DVD player, and wireless Internet access for your entertainment, along with good cell service.

When it comes to vacation rentals with mountain views, the Casita at Madrona Ranch stands proudly among the very best. The location, amenities, and overall beauty of this property make it an amazing hideaway destination. Backroads Reservations will be proud to help you make it happen!

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

Me and my Daughter enjoyed our stay and Shirley and Keith (the owners) were so kind! Everything we needed was in the cabin! We also learned about plants from her huge garden! Deer came right up to the back porch! The views are breathtaking from the covered patio! Can’t wait to visit again! Thanks again
Our casita was Perfect in every way! Pictures are accurate for where we stayed. Very clean, comfortable with cold AC. Peaceful location in the beautiful hill country. We saw lots of wildlife and sat outside in the evening listening to the birds and frogs over at the pond. Low water just bc of lack of rain. We enjoyed the hot tub at night, cooked breakfast & made our coffee in the morning; an electric cook top is provided with all the cooking pans/utensils (bring your seasonings). Other houses on site but it is still private. We did meet the owners and they were lovely to talk to. Planning our next trip back asap! This place is a Gem. Ya'll were easy to communicate with and we appreciate that. Texts and emails were great. Clear instructions for everything we needed to know from directions all the way to check out. Thank you for making the trip easy!
Bourne and Bandera are both 15 minutes away each way, and have plenty of food and grocery stores. Being in the middle of them was perfect, peaceful, and relaxing. Frederickburgs was about 50 minutes, but worth seeing it for a day! You will NOT regret booking this place.
The place was beautiful and Fredericksburg and Kerrville are within driving distance, the host were very responsive and helpful, they even babysat our dog while we were out to dinner. This was not planned, but shows how helpful the hostess was. The view was amazing with a lot of wildlife to see. I would definitely return and we recommend it to others.
What a blissful, beautiful place. A lovely warm inviting cozy single large room that overlooks the gorgeous Texas Hill County, the huge fire pit & the wonderful hot tub. Lots of deer & rabbits wandering around and a sky full of stars. Minutes from Bandera & close to lots of lovely little towns with great shopping & dining options. But plan to just sit & relax, don't make too many plans other than wandering the property & lounging in the tub & making a roaring fire.
Absolutely incredible little gem hidden away in the hill country. Peaceful, beautiful views. We spent hours just sitting on the swing, skipped rocks, grilled, explored the nearby towns, enjoyed the hot tub, and got to bring our dog. 100% recommend for a hill country getaway! Thanks for everything!
