All aboard! Muller's Ark Caboose is located ten miles from Bandera, yet is a perfect private setting as a getaway Hill Country cabin. This genuine Southern Pacific caboose will be your fun and comfortable whistle-stop when you visit the Cowboy Capital of the World! It's no mere place to stay, but a memorable and perfect getaway vacation spot you'll recall years later with sentences that start with, "Remember when we...." Don't let this piece of railroad history pass you by!
Most trains don't even have cabooses anymore, but in their heyday they worked hard as bunkhouses, tool sheds, lookout posts, and even campaign platforms. Muller's Ark Caboose served admirably, and now spends its time as a clear river cabin near the Medina River, a wonderfully relaxing setting with beautiful Hill Country views. It's a cozy, clean, and comfy get-away-from-it-all spot that accommodates up to three guests-both cheery and remote, with no nearby neighbors. You'll have the whole place to yourself!
With 2,000 feet of Medina River frontage on the property, you'll enjoy everything like swimming, tubing, fishing, or just relaxing to the mellow sounds only a riverfront property can offer. There's a spacious deck out back (complete with patio furniture), which overlooks the property's private lake-another great fishing spot! The ample acreage here is perfect for hiking, and various wildlife frequent the area as a safe and quiet watering hole. This is a popular pet-friendly holiday rental near Bandera, and there's lots of room for them to romp!
Don't let the rural setting make you think you'll be roughing it; there are a lot of conveniences inside! There's central air and heating, so you'll be comfortable year round. Bunk-style beds (single above, double below) allow restful sleep for up to three. The living space is topped off by a rustic Franklin stove. There's also a fully equipped kitchen, TV with DVD player, and bathroom with both bath and shower. All basic linens are provided.
The days of passenger railroads are, for the most part, in the past-but when you visit Muller's Ark Caboose, you'll be able to experience your own slice of railroading history, in this unique Texas Hill Country getaway. It's a weekend cabin rental like no other-you can almost hear the nostalgic sound of a train traveling down the rails! All this makes it one of the best Bandera holiday rentals!
