Rolling mountain views surround the 35 acres at the Hill Country Mirage, and you'll be staying in a historic early 1900s-era farmhouse that's been restored and modernized for your comfort. Plenty of deer and other wildlife roam here, with numerous viewing spots from which nature lovers can observe. The private pond is stocked with catfish, and you can swim, canoe, and fish from the rock-solid dock alongside it.
There are more extras before stepping inside! There's plenty of outdoor furniture, a shaded gazebo, front and back porches, a charcoal grill, a private outdoor shower, and even a tire swing and treehouse! The bar area features koozies from the owner's travels, along with a fridge, sink, card table, and TV. This rental requires a signed liability release, and two RV hookups with 50-amp power, water and septic service are available for an additional fee; please ask about this option when booking if you're interested.
Stylish modern updates alongside country highlights give this renovated farm home a warm and welcoming personality.
