Hacienda del Rio on the Medina

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

Grandly overlooking the Medina River in the Hill Country is the Hacienda del Rio River Home, a stately and lively setting for your next family getaway! Large and majestic oaks shade the property of this beautiful kid-friendly and budget-friendly guest house. You'll have your own private river access for swimming, fishing, or just kicking back and relaxing along its banks. Just five miles down the road are the hot spots, history, cuisine, and shops of Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World!

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.

The antique gate behind the house leads to a tiered staircase that accesses the Medina below. Surrounding the home is the serene beauty of the Hill Country, where you can enjoy a hike or admire the local wildlife. The countryside is the perfect place to find peace and quiet, or to enjoy quality time with your family you might not be able to normally take advantage of. The scenic setting and amenities here make it the perfect riverfront vacation rental!

Just off the living room is a spacious and shaded patio, replete with outdoor furniture. It's a great place to soak in the scenery, enjoy a glass of wine, and catch up and reminisce. What better way is there to bond than good conversation around a perfectly grilled meal out in the fresh air? The charcoal grill on the property will help you make it happen! If any members of your party smoke, it's allowed here-but outside only.

The exterior stonework, and the grand living and dining room, evoke both comfort and elegance. Both floors are kept comfortable with central air and heating. The kitchen is fully appointed with appliances and cooking and serving utensils, and a washer and dryer are available for stays four days or longer. There are three full baths upstairs, and tucked beneath the staircase downstairs is an additional half-bath. Four bedrooms upstairs supply plush sleeping arrangements for up to tem people on a total of six beds. (Additional guests may sleep on air mattresses, which you provide; please inquire when booking.) The TV in the living room is hooked up with Roku service, and the one in the master bedroom has a DVD player. Wifi Internet access and good cell service are also on hand here.

The Hacienda del Rio is a gorgeous kid-friendly home where you and your family will create holiday memories you'll treasure for years to come. Get your dream vacation underway by contacting us at Backroads Reservations today!
