Casitas at Madrona Ranch - Casita

Property Type : Guest House

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!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. We have 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, while witnessing the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

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-there's even a romantic swing under one of the shade trees! 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!

What guests are saying...

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!
We loved our stay! The views are incredible and the location is so peaceful and quiet. It honestly exceeded every expectation we had! Close enough to both Boerne and Bandera to venture out and explore, then come back to the cabin and relax in the hot tub under the stars. We will be back!
We could not have enjoyed our time here more!! The property is lovely. The view from the casita feels like you're in the mountains, as the hills it faces are owned by Texas Wildlife, and it's green as far as you can see. The casita is on the main property with the owners, but the way it's situated allows the guests to be completely private and keep to themselves, or get to know the incredible kind, social, fun, hospitable owners, Keith & Shirley! We enjoyed spending some time with them, and we also enjoyed lots of quiet downtime, reading outside and soaking in the view. We grilled our dinners, fished in the afternoons, read outside in the morning & watched the deer, and made a day trip to Bandera & to Boerne to get out a bit, although we would have been happy sitting on the lawn all day, too. The casita is also really clean, fully stocked with all you'd need to grill & cook small meals, and the bed is incredibly comfortable! It was the perfect place to rest and unwind, and we hope to come back and share this gem with others!

The hosts were very hospitable and knowledgeable about things to do and places to go in the surrounding area and counties. The cottage, Casita, was very inviting and had all the things one would need to feel at home. We will definitely be returning when things get back to normal in the world and time permits us to do so.
This place was amazing you will not regret booking it, we enjoyed every moment there. The hone was so cozy and clean, and of course the host Shirley was so nice and helpful with any questions we had.
