Cypress Star on the Medina River

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

Add some Texas magic to your next visit to the Cowboy Capital of the World by booking a stay at the Cypress Star in Bandera! This is a spacious, kid and pet-friendly Hill Country vacation home with plush sleeping accommodations for up to a dozen people. It's nestled in a peaceful neighborhood setting that has a private, out-in-the-country feel to it, yet it's only a few blocks away from downtown Bandera, and attractions like the 11th Street Cowboy Bar and the splashing fun of the Medina River!

Cypress Star is a short walk to Bandera City Park, which accesses the Medina River for a modest fee. Additionally, you have the option to have fun with disc golf, visit a skateboard park, utilize two playgrounds, or embark on horseback rides offered by a nearby outfitter just two blocks away. This makes it one of our most popular vacation homes, but there's so much going on right on the property, you may find it hard to drag yourself away! The fenced backyard provides safety for kids and pets. There are shaded porches out front and back, adorned with outdoor furniture. And we're just getting started!

Entertain on the back porch with a bar, beverage cooler, and Roku-equipped smart TV! There's a fire pit and pellet grill/smoker combo for cooking, and firewood is provided. Snuggle your special someone with glitter after dark with string lights over the patio and grove.Did we mention the cowboy pool? Check with us for its availability; if it's open, you've got to take a cowboy-style dip! Test your skills on the croquet field in the grove, fully decked out with equipment and beer holders! (Please return croquet items to the house when not in use.)

The roomy interior offers comfort, thanks to central air (split mini units in the bunk room), ceiling fans, and a fireplace in the back (the front fireplace is ornamental). There are two comfy seating areas, the larger of which has a Roku-equipped smart TV. The full kitchen includes all the appliances, cooking and serving ware, and utensils your crew will need, alongside a dining area and coffee bar. Added conveniences include Wifi Internet service and a washer and dryer.

Three bedrooms, along with an additional bunk room, provide great sleep space for up to a dozen people (please be aware the bunk room is only available for groups of more than six). That's one king-sized bed, two queens, and two sets of queen and twin bunk beds in all! The master bedroom and bunk room have their own smart TVs. Two spotlessly-clean full bathrooms are shared among the sleeping spaces, and have shower and tub combos for your cleanup needs. Fresh bed and bath linens are provided for everyone.

    What’s in a Name: Nameless, Texas

    About five miles northeast of Lago Vista, and three north of Jonestown, you’ll find remnants of an interesting Hill Country ghost town. Nameless, Texas, never reached even 100 residents, and its overall history was fairly ordinary, but at the heart of its history is one of the most frustrating examples of governmental bureaucracy you’ll find anywhere.

    Antiquing in the Hill Country

    Whether you’re traveling to the Hill Country for a quick weekend or a longer getaway of a week or more, we know a lot of you are antique hounds with your sniffer out for a great deal or vintage find. We’d like to take a moment to let you know where the biggest and most popular antique stores, malls, and shows are in our beautiful region!

    Willow City: More Than Just a Loop

    While working on an article about viewing bluebonnets in the Hill Country, the Willow City Loop came up came up often in our research. We dug some more and found Willow City has an interesting history beyond its scenery. With that said, we’re taking a closer look at the history and heritage of this Hill Country village.

    We stayed from Thursday - Sunday and the home was definitely CLEAN!! The home was in a great location! The backroads reservationist were extremely helpful!!
    Spent the weekend here with a group of friends. The house is spacious and well-supplied - everything we needed in the kitchen, lots of outdoor games for the backyard. The backyard is even better than it looks in the photos! Lovely covered back porch, lots of space, birds and butterflies! Easy walk to Main Street to go to restaurants, shops, and bars but far enough away that it was very quiet and private. Would go again!
    Such a beautiful and well-kept home that we were fortunate to be able to stay at for a month! Shortly after we arrived we, there was a minor plumbing issue. Reached out to Spencer later evening and by 8 am the next day (on a Sunday), we had a plumber arrive and take care of the issue! Excellent response! The king bed was so comfortable! Wi-Fi speed was great! Kitchen is well-stocked. There is an ample supply of nice dinnerware but it’s not microwaveable (the bakeware is). We bought some cheap plates to use (just 2 of us so not a big deal). The linens throughout the house are quality. The yard is beautiful and fenced which our poodle loved romping in! Didn’t get to use the cowboy pool but they had it filled and ready to go for us. Thank you for making our stay a great experience! We look forward to another winter getaway at one of Backroads Reservations homes!!
    We absolutely loved The Cypress Star. It was perfect for hanging out with our family and furry buddies. The house is spacious and well stocked. The backyard is fantastic with a great fence for those fur babies. We loved sitting on the front porch watching all the deer come up. The outside amenities were just wonderful and we spent three majority of our time hanging out outside. We had local family over for Thanksgiving and the property had everything we needed to entertain and serve a large meal. We will definitely be staying there again the next time we come to Bandera.
    No sirens, no neighbors playing loud music, no barking dogs and no traffic jams! This home is very comfortable, even the beds! Kitchen is nicely stocked with all essentials. Bed linens are soft and cozy. Coffee bar is a nice touch. The back yard is fantastic and really enjoyable. We travel often and will consider staying here again
    This property was absolutely AMAZING! We booked for a family reunion and it did not disappoint! It was even better than we expected! Plenty of room and privacy for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with all the appliances and utensils you need for cooking for every meal. Fully stocked coffee bar and a beverage fridge that we loaded up! The pool was very enjoyable and the grounds were beautiful. Clean and modern! We are already talking about booking again!
