Highlander River House

CHECK AVAILABILITY
Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

The elevation of the Highlander Medina River House provides eye-popping views of the Hill Country, and a great perch for bird watching and wildlife viewing! The stairs behind the guest home are very steep, however they lead to private access to the Medina River, where you can enjoy the river to your heart's content. When you visit here, you'll not only enjoy the peace and quiet of a tranquil country setting, but you'll be just six miles northwest of the attractions of Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World.

This beautiful waterfront vacation rental offers more than its riverside location! It's also within an hour's drive of the Guadalupe River in Kerrville, the Lost Maples and Hill Country State Natural Areas, and Garner State Park, as well. It's a nature lover's paradise, with plenty for the city slickers to enjoy, too! (Please note before booking that the stairs leading to the river are quite steep and should not be used by those with mobility limitations or for carrying tubes, kayaks or water activity equipment. For safety reasons, children under five are not allowed on the property.)

Outside, you'll find a spacious patio with an outdoor dining area, as well as a sun deck that overlooks the river and the mountain views beyond. Both are equipped with patio furniture, as well. The Highlander also has a wood smoker and gas grill, so be sure to plan for at least one feast of Texas-style BBQ! This home serves well as a spacious retreat for your family, or a romantic couples' getaway! Keep in mind this is a non-smoking property.

Woodwork, stone floors, and beamed ceilings provide a welcoming environment inside. Between its three bedrooms and sleeper sofa in the living area, the Highlander provides comfy sleeping space for up to eight people. The bath is newly renovated with a shower and tub combo, and all bed and bath linens are provided. The living room has a fireplace for all to gather round, and there's even a foosball table! The full kitchen comes complete with all the appliances, cookware, serving ware, utensils and glasses you'll need, and there's also a laundry room! Tech-wise, there's a TV with Roku, CD player, Wifi Internet service, and good cell coverage. Interior comfort is covered by multiple window AC units, ceiling fans, and wall and space heaters.

This gorgeous Medina River cabin has everything you'll need as a home base for your next Hill Country holiday! Message us at Backroads Reservations, and we'll help get the ball rolling.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The front and back yard are large. If you follow instructions you will have no issues with home. The house cooled quickly and we liked the layout of home.

This place is perfect! Absolutely spacious and it has a great view from this house. It’s super clean. Its front yard and backyard are so big and my kiddos played outside. We had a great time with my family. I really love this place!
