Property Description

**Instant booking is not available for this property. You must call us or send a request to check availability prior to booking**

The Firewater on the Frio is a unique riverfront home, chock full of amenities and surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Texas Hill Country! The property has its own private access to the Frio River, where you can tube, swim, fish, or have a picnic on its shady banks. This family-friendly vacation rental has tons of space, a welcoming escape for groups up to 20 people. With Hill Country towns like Concan, Leakey, Vanderpool, and Utopia nearby, you'll have the best of both town and country living here!

It's river living at its finest! Not only will you have private access to swimming or tubing on the Frio River, but several tubing and kayaking rentals and drop-off points are close by, too. Star Kayak Rental, your source for tubes and kayaks, and Magers Crossing, a popular put-in point for fun floats, are both close. Seven Bluffs is also nearby, known for its less-traveled and scenic tubing runs. On top of all that, Garner State Park is only ten miles away!

Outside, the Firewater features two enormous seating areas, both of which are shaded and decked out with picnic tables and and bistro seating. The deck is festooned with colorful party lighting, and the rock patio is home to a charcoal grill-fire up a hearty meal while you take in the natural views of the river and the mountains beyond. The guest house features ample parking and a carport, and the front lawn has everything you'll need for a game of volleyball or horseshoes.

The interior inspires gasps of surprise, from the rugged stone walls and floors to the spiral staircase, stained glass windows, and fireplaces. Five bedrooms (three on the main floor, and two in the loft) sleep a total of up to 20 people, and there are three full bathrooms. The fully-equipped kitchen is a great culinary space, and the living and dining areas include dining and gaming tables, a wet bar, and TV. The living room's windows provide great views of the Frio. Comfort's assured with ceiling fans and central air and heat, and wireless Internet and cell service is on hand. Please be aware that linens and towels are NOT included when you book; please be prepared to bring your own-or rent them for a reasonable fee.

You'll be hard-pressed to find such a roomy and perfectly-located holiday rental with a private river frontage as nice as the Firewater! Message us at Backroads Reservations, and we'll set you up with this amazing getaway.

The Frio River carves its way through this pretty little town, which makes it a perfect setting for horseback riding, hiking, bat-watching and wildlife spotting. Ride a tube or a kayak down the river, visit Mount Old Baldy in nearby Garner State Park, and grab a bite and brew in one of Concan's restaurants and night spots.
