Property Description

**Instant booking is not available for this property. You must call us or send a request to check availability prior to booking**

Nestled in a peaceful grove of trees, Mobile #1 at the Muller's Ark Guest Ranch is the perfect country setting for your next Hill Country getaway! Perched near the banks of the Medina River, this retreat has private access to tubing, swimming, fishing and hiking-a vacation rental with the best of the country and town aspects of the region. With Bandera a few miles away, this cozy guest home has everything to appeal to both nature lovers and those who love in-town night life, shopping and cuisine.

This is a fantastic pet-friendly and kid-friendly rental! Muller's Ark is a picturesque 100-acre spread, with both the Medina River and a private lake for you to enjoy. Local wildlife and bird species roam the grounds freely, making it a great place for a relaxing and fascinating nature hike. Dozens of Hill Country roads wind through the area, so make time for a scenic tour of the breathtaking views here! The Cowboy Capital of the World is only ten miles away; it's renowned for its honky tonks, antiquing, and great food.

Comfortable outdoor furniture graces the shaded deck here, where you can savor a cup or glass of your favorite beverage while admiring the wildlife and inspiring views of the surrounding Hill Country. Among the many species that call the guest ranch home are deer, geese, wild turkeys, and pea fowl, and the skies here at night are the delight of amateur astronomers. Have a hearty cookout on the charcoal grill, and relax in the soothing country setting, with the soft music of wind chimes.

Warm and gleaming woodwork creates a welcoming and homey interior, and every inch is kept comfortable with central air, heating, and ceiling fans. The full kitchen has all the appliances you'll need for your meals, and there's also a washer and dryer installed here. Sleeping comfort for up to six is assured, with a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the second, and a queen sleeper sofa in the roomy living area. Soft and clean linens are included for both the bed and bath here, too. Mobile #1 also has a satellite TV with a DVD player, and great cell phone coverage.

Spend your next relaxing weekend away-or an even longer stretch of time-in the warmth, quiet, and luxurious extras of Mobile #1 at Muller's Ark. Contact us here at Backroads Reservations, and we'll get you on your way!

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!

What guests are saying...

We absolutely loved staying here. We even called the next weekend to go again but they were booked. We will go again for sure. And the owners are the sweetest people ever.
