Hill Country Mirage in Bandera

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

We've all seen the scenes of the exhausted desert traveler who mistakenly imagines an oasis paradise in the distance. Inevitably, it turns out to be a mirage. Well, the Hill Country Mirage near Bandera is no illusion; it's a great vacation escape many travelers seek! With its own fish-stocked private pond, dedicated bar and entertainment area, hundreds of trees, and sleeping space for up to eight people, this family-friendly getaway provides a perfect home base for your Hill Country adventures!

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. The interior space can be customized to your liking with central air, heating, and ceiling fans, and for entertainment you can fire up the satellite TV and take advantage of Wifi service, too. The living areas and dining areas are accommodating and spacious, and the full kitchen is appointed with modern appliances and plenty of cooking and serving ware, utensils, and glasses. A washer and dryer are also on-site for cleanup convenience.

The Hill Country Mirage features three bedrooms and two full baths. The master en suite has its own bath, and the second is shared by the other two bedrooms; both baths feature shower stalls, basic toiletries, and clean linens. Up to eight of your folks will slumber in warm comfort here; the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, with a queen in the second bedroom, and kids love the two bunk bed setups in the third bedroom, with four single beds. All six beds are draped in fluffy, clean linens, too.

A great family Hill Country getaway is no illusion! Ask Backroads Reservations how we can get you situated in the Hill Country Mirage for your next vacation.
