Property Type : Houses

Property Description

**Lake water levels are low and pictures may not represent current levels. Local water activities, and park access and boat ramp access are dependent on rain and lake water management**

Imagine yourself reclining in luxury on a high shaded deck, sipping coffee as you watch the colorful Hill Country sunrise. Now, imagine no more! That relaxing daydream meets reality in the Lakeside Escape, its 1,150-foot elevation offering an inspiring view of the Hill Country. This roomy vacation rental features great amenities, and puts you close to great Hill Country towns like Bandera, Pipe Creek, Helotes. Tarpley, and Lakehills, but in a quiet suburban setting where you can decompress.

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.

This family-friendly Hill Country escape allows both kids and pets on the property, with plenty of outdoor space for everyone, humans and pets alike, to exercise, play, and let off some of that extra energy. It's located in a peaceful neighborhood; so peaceful, in fact, that it serves as a picturesque roost from which you can view local birds and wildlife that frequent the area.

Honestly, with the view you'll have from the back of the home, you'll hardly know you have any neighbors at all! The spacious and nicely-shaded back deck, outfitted with outdoor furniture, provides an elevated bird's eye view over the treetops that's nothing short of spectacular! This serene holiday hideaway also features a charcoal BBQ pit for grilling, and plenty of dedicated parking for your vehicles.

The living area ceiling is a marvel of both rustic and modern decor, with angled wooden beams, and this look is accented throughout this vacation home with handsome and golden natural grain paneling. Comfort is assured in this grand space, with central air and heat downstairs, and an efficient AC unit in the upstairs bedroom. Under its stately high ceilings, the living space is furnished with plush furniture, tables, Wifi, and Roku-ready cable TV, and even a fireplace for added character and warmth. The full kitchen is appointed with all the appliances, cooking ware, and utensils your culinary heart could desire, with dining tables that seat up to eight. Finally, there's a convenient washer and dryer on-site, too!

All told, there's sumptuous and comfy sleeping space here for up to six guests. The master suite includes a king-sized bed, and a full bath with a roomy tiled shower. The second bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and there's a full-sized futon couch in the living area that will accommodate two more people. A second full bath includes a shower and tub combo, and fresh and clean linens are provided for all bed and bath areas.

Classy comfort inside, breathtaking views outside, with a great location close to so much of the fun and adventure the Hill Country has to offer-the Lakeside Escape has it all! Call us at Backroads Reservations to book today!

What guests are saying...

May 2022 We stayed at this place celebrating Memorial Day and a 60th birthday. It was very relaxing and peaceful. The lake and hills view was beautiful. Watching and feeding the deer was fun! The neighbors were friendly. Sitting and grilling out back was great. We enjoyed privacy the entire stay. We will definitely book this place again.
A clean and spacious option to enjoy a view of Medina Lake from your oversized patio. Kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked. A key card is also provided to visit Pebble Beach less than 5min away. Neighbors are friendly. I would return without hesitation!
Beautiful view of the lake. We were in town for a family reunion so we didn’t try any of the amenities right around but host did leave tips-if we needed. Cute house - perfect for one immediate family - not much privacy in bedroom/bathrooms.
