Property Description

**Instant booking is not available for this property. You must call us or send a request to check availability prior to booking**
Does your family love tubing, swimming, and fishing alongside the banks of a fun and adventurous water spot? How about a riverfront vacation rental with private and carefree access to the Medina River? The Ark Cottage at Muller's Ark is the ideal setting for your next getaway! This kid-friendly and pet-friendly haven offers the best of secluded river living, yet it's also just ten minutes from all the cuisine, night life, shops and events in the heart of Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World!

Not only will you have 2,000 feet of Medina River frontage, but there's also a private lake right on the property where you can cast a line! Fishing, hiking, and stargazing are among the many activities you'll enjoy on this scenic 100 acres of Texas Hill Country beauty. If you have wildlife lovers in your group, they'll enjoy spotting the wild turkey, geese, peafowl, and deer-among other species-that call this beautiful neck of the woods home.

Wake up to the soothing sounds and sights of the Hill Country on the shaded patio here, with your first cup of coffee in the morning, or a relaxing glass of wine at night-or both! The entire ranch here is tucked nicely into some of the most awe-inspiring scenery of the surrounding Hill Country. It's also a perfect jumping-off spot for a car or motorcycle tour of the country roads that wind through the area.

Woodwork, stone work, area rugs, and other homey touches make this cabin instantly comfortable and welcoming. The four beds in the cabin's two bedrooms offer quiet and restful slumber for up to five guests, and soft and fluffy bed and bath linens are included when you book here. The full bathroom is equipped with a tub and shower combo, and the kitchen is generously appointed with all the appliances to make this your home away from home. Your tech amenities include a TV with DVD player, and good cell phone coverage. For interior comfort, there are ceiling fans you can use to stir up a breeze, as well as box air conditioning and radiator heat units.

The fun and peaceful setting of river livin' beckons! The Ark Cottage has the location, amenities, down-home style and simplicity, and budget-friendly details that make it one of our favorite Texas Hill Country weekend getaways. Please contact us at Backroads Reservations for availability prior to booking.
