Property Description

Immerse yourself in cowboy country in style at the Lonesome Dove Guest House! All the western charm of the Cowboy Capital of the World is at your doorstep in this attractive and unique guest house. This rustic and historic 1915 structure has been meticulously restored with a warm barn wood interior, and generously updated with modern amenities to enrich your stay! Only a short walk away (and we're talking a block and a half) lies a glittering stretch of the beautiful Medina River.

You can almost hear the jangling spurs and neighing of horses at the hitching posts outside! This is the perfect vacation rental in Bandera, with most of its popular attractions within walking distance. One of the most famous honky tonks in Texas-the 11th Street Cowboy Bar-is right across the street! Antiquing, cuisine, shopping, you name it; it's all here-and the natural beauty of the Medina River is yours to enjoy, too. You'll be in the heart of all the best Bandera has to offer.

A shaded porch is out front, complete with seating-and we weren't kidding about those vintage hitching posts; they're right out front, too. This is the perfect central location from which to watch the activity of the Cowboy Capital of the World-and a great place to join in on the shopping and night life. Take the short walk to the Bandera City Park on the Medina River and enjoy a peaceful stroll or try your hand at fishing, as well. All this is nestled in the gorgeous setting of the Texas Hill Country!

This cozy and romantic rental sleeps up to four, with a queen bed in the bedroom and a double-size futon sleeper in the living area. The full bath has a roomy shower, and all bed and bath linens are provided. If you'd like to stay in for an intimate meal, the kitchens fully equipped, including cooking and serving ware. Central air and heating keep the space comfortable, and there are two TVs on hand- with CommZoom channel service. There is WIFI and great cell service. The vintage Wild West touches blend perfectly with the modern comforts at Lonesome Dove!

This property is a unique mix of a Medina River vacation rental, coupled with easy and instant access to Bandera. Its location, decor, amenities, and budget-friendly pricing make it an increasingly popular getaway spot. Give us a call at Backroads Reservations today, and we'll set you up.

What guests are saying...

We had such a wonderful time at Lonesome Dove in Bandera. The location was perfect and we really appreciated all the special decor. Thanks for sharing your place.
We had a blast and we absolutely love your cabin. This is the third time we have stayed and honestly will not stay anywhere else when we come to town !! Am hoping to book again later this summer!
Great stay we had a good time , room was very comfy and great location ! Our Host were very quick to respond if we needed anything and checked on us to see if we needed anything we will book again with Backroads Reservations.
Spencer and everyone else at Backwoods Reservations truly understand customer service! I had so many issues when it came to booking a place to stay through a separate booking site and Spencer spent so much time helping me out! Apart from that, the stay was perfect. We parked the truck when we got there and it didn’t move until we left...that’s how close you are to everything! The place is clean, has a home feel, and offers everything that you need for a laid back getaway. I hope you like live music, because 11st Street is open until 2am every night with love music!
We loved the Lonesome Dove Hotel. My husband and I stayed for a weekend and we would have liked to have stayed longer. Its a small place, but has been designed to be very cozy and comfortable. The location is perfect and we walked to town, which is a really fun place to explore. This place has everything you need and has been decorated beautifully with a true western flair.
Great place! Great location, super nice place with everything you need! We hope to stay here again for the next rally!
