Nestled nicely in the inspiring mountainous terrain of the Texas sits the Hill Country Lake Retreat, a fantastic family vacation getaway for up to ten people! This comfy cabin is in a peaceful country location, yet it's also convenient to the events & attractions in towns like Bandera, Pipe Creek, & Lakehills. For those seeking fun and adventure on and around the water, you'll find that here, too; the Hill Country Lake Retreat is a quick ten minutes from Bandera County's Medina Lake Park, too!

The Lakehills area and Medina Lake Park are locally famous for water recreation, and the Hill Country Lake Retreat is an ideal place to call your home base while you enjoy the fishing, boating, tubing, swimming, and picnicking facilities of the park, without feeling "boxed in" by crowds of people. It's really a "have your cake and eat it, too" setup here; you'll have peace and quiet when the mood suits you, and when you'd like a rollicking good time on the lake, it's only minutes away!

Majestic trees provide plenty of shade, and you'll find comfortable outdoor furniture on which to relax. Fresh-air snacking and full meals are a snap with a fire pit and charcoal grill on hand, as well. Kids, and kids at heart alike, love the tire swing and cornhole game here, and sparkling outdoor lighting adds a magical touch to the yard at night! All day long you'll be treated by views of the gorgeous Hill Country, and, after a vivid and colorful sunset, billions of stars come out to put on a show in the dark nighttime sky.

Inside, high ceilings and an open floor plan lend the guest home an airy and welcoming charm. The fireplace in the living area, and central air and heat, keep the entire inner space comfy.

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

What guests are saying...

Had a nice relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of living in the city. We went to eat and listened to some nice live music a mile away from the Airbnb at 4 Way Bar and Grill in the evening. Such a cute home for sure. We drove to Bandera Tx only like 20 min away to go do some shopping. Just such a relaxing time and nice to see the deer in the yard!
I cannot thank the property management enough for accommodating our family during our stay. On the day we were supposed to leave, it was necessary for us to extend our stay through the week. Communication was excellent, and they were extremely helpful in meeting our needs. The location was perfect for us. The house held our two families perfectly—9 total) Additionally, the openness of the dining room/living area provided ample space for nearby family to visit. Our kids loved playing outside climbing trees and on the tire swing. We even got to pet the horse next door. We needed a place where we could be together as a family and this location provided that. Thank you!
The host was very accommodating! The house had everything we needed plus more. The views and activities around were always amazing. Even though we were evacuating hurricane Ida I would absolutely come back here. So cute! My pups loved it as well.
