Feather Trees on the Medina River

Property Description

This is a home that offers fun for the entire family. The main house which sleeps eight is separated from the cabin which sleeps an additional four by a large deck with tables, chairs, benches and an outdoor bar/sink area. Next to the deck there is a large charcoal grill with smoker and an outdoor shower which the kids will love after a day of playing in the river. The yard offers lots of chairs nestled beneath huge oak trees. The deck and back yard overlook a large meadow covered with wildflowers and the deer and turkey come into that feeder mornings and evenings so there is lots of wildlife viewing. The beautiful Medina River is about 400 yards from the house across that meadow.

The Main house is centrally air conditioned and heated and has WiFi throughout. The bedroom has two twin beds and there is one bath with a tub and shower combination. The small dining area for four to six flows into the large dining room which seats ten. This opens to the comfy living area with three sofas one of which is a double sleeper sofa, a wood burning fireplace and satellite TV. The fully equipped kitchen is off the living area. There is an additional sleeping area beyond the living room with two twin trundle beds to accommodate four additional guests.

The Cabin has two twin beds, a queen bed, a sofa, a half bath and a window unit AC and heat unit. All bed and bath linens are supplied for both the house and the cabin and there is a large supply of river towels. Good AT&T cell coverage.

What an awesome place. the location was perfect. the private river access was a plus plus. never saw another soul out there. the wildlife was great. we had the whole river to ourselves. our dog loved it. never seen her take to the wilderness like that. we loved it. the town was close enough and the other little towns were not to far away either. bandera is a nice town.

This is a great getaway for the family that is ready to relax. The water is a short walk away,(you cannot see it from the cabin so you’ll want to explore), and they have everything you need to cook or watch TV or grill or whatever!! We will be back for sure!

First, we were surprised at the amount of linens available. Also, our young children were thoroughly entertained with all the games available to them inside the cabinets. And watching the deer eating from the feeders was sooo entertaining. The many treks to the river will forever be remembered by all of us because of all the deer making their evening trips right in front of us. Thanks for the use of your cabin. Hopefully we’ll be able to visit again soon.

The house/cabin was perfect. It was well-maintained, the deer feeder on the property attracted like 15 deer at one point, and the river access was awesome. Even in mid-June, we had the river to ourselves most of the day. The back deck was perfect for hanging out at night too. We'll definitely be back!

Perfect for a big group. By far the best river trip. The perfect location. The Medina river was an unexpected gem.
