Enchanted View on the Medina

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

Town and country work together in harmony at this charming vacation home overlooking the Medina River! While Enchanted View is located within the town limits of Bandera, it's got that country feel to it, too. Your elevated view from this Hill Country getaway offers a look at the Cowboy Capital of the World in one direction, and gorgeous mountain views in the other. This kid-friendly and pet-friendly Hill Country gem sleeps up to six people comfortably: it's a great escape for the whole family!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 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 and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

This exclusive Hill Country hideaway is located in a gated community in Bandera known as Enchanted River Estates. It comes by its name honestly, as it offers an enchanted overlook of the Medina River, not to mention neighborhood access to the water for tubing, fishing, and swimming. It's a wonderful place for wildlife watching, while at the same time it's close to all the attractions and excitement of Bandera itself!

Outside, Enchanted View has a pet-safe fenced yard and covered parking for your vehicles. The front patio is shaded and furnished with comfortable outdoor furniture, and there's a deck and quaint covered pergola out back, with a furniture set that feels like an outdoor living room! To add more Hill Country magic to your evenings, the pergola has glittering string lights installed. There's also a charcoal grill on hand for great Texas cookouts! Smoking is allowed at Enchanted View, but outside only.

Efficient AC units, space heaters, and ceiling fans are distributed throughout the bright and tasteful interior, so you can customize each area to your ideal comfort level. The living area and dining area are both generously appointed with plenty of furniture in this lofted, roomy and welcoming open floor plan. A full kitchen loaded with modern appliances and plenty of cookware, dining ware, utensils, and glasses will easily cover your indoor food prep needs (don't forget the grill outside!). Two Roku-ready smart TVs and Wifi Internet service fill the bill for connectivity and entertainment.

There are two sleeping areas at Enchanted View, each with plush and comfortable beds that offer restful sleep for two people apiece. A spiral staircase leads to the master bedroom loft upstairs, with a second bed located downstairs, adjacent to the living room. Note: there's no door to this second sleeping area. There are additional sofa bed accommodations in the living area, too. Overall, this spacious vacation cabin sleeps up to six people. There's a gleaming clean full bath on the main floor with a shower stall, and all bed and bath spaces come with plenty of fresh and clean linens.

    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! This listing follows no particular order, and doesn’t give preference to one place over another.

    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.

    What guests are saying...

    This cozy house is in a gated neighborhood in Bandera and right off the main road. It has a nice deck that looks out to the hill country where you can enjoy a morning coffee or sit and look at the stars at night. It has a small well stocked kitchen and coffee bar area. Comfy sitting area with smart TV, a bed downstairs in an open back room and a bed upstairs in the loft area. It has window AC units that kept the house temperature comfortable. Communication with the host was the easiest I’ve had with any Airbnb hosts. We would definitely stay there again! Side note: if you have pets, they have two area with pet bowls and a small pet bed in the house. Private feedback: We had a great stay at the Enchanted View house! Thanks for the super easy communication and the app works great. We hope to stay there again on our next trip down
