Property Description

Take in the most beautiful aspects of the Texas Hill Country, with the emphasis on country! The Potato Flats Ranch House provides stylish interior comfort surrounded by stunning mountain views in a waterfront setting on this 600-acre working ranch. With plush accommodations for up to six people, this spacious and luxurious guest house rental creates the perfect relaxation and decompression zone. Also, you'll be amazed to discover this rural wonderland is less than ten miles from downtown Bandera!

Chances are you'll see Charlie the donkey, as he oversees the goings-on at his sprawling country home. There's plenty of room to hike, bird watch, and ride horses, and there are pens and stalls here for your equine companions. Outdoor enthusiasts love the location; this country rental is 15 miles from the Hill Country State Natural Area, and within ten miles of Medina River tubing, fishing, and swimming in Bandera. For night life, shopping, and great food, Bandera, Pipe Creek, and Tarpley are all close by.

A shaded, wrap-around porch surrounds the house, offering fresh country breezes and panoramic views of the Hill Country in all directions. The porch is furnished with rocking chairs, which are a wonderful way to enjoy a mellow moment or two. There's a charcoal grill, too, if you're in the mood for a hearty outdoor meal. Kids over ten are welcome to explore the ranch, but keep in mind that pets and smoking are not allowed on the property.

Cowboy decor, hardwood floors, rustic furnishings, and even a Ben Franklin stove, highlight the warm and welcoming interior here. The spacious living room and dining areas provide comfortable seating, and the full kitchen features appliances and utensils. Up to six guests sleep in plush comfort in the house's three bedrooms, with two double beds and two twin beds overall. The master bath has a shower, and the hallway bath features a shower/tub combo; all bed and bath linens are provided. The TV has both VCR and DVD players, with a library of VCR movies to enjoy. With ceiling fans in every room, and central air and heat, your interior comfort is assured. Finally, there's a washer/dryer combo, too.

Nestled alongside the Guadalupe River halfway between Kerrville and Hunt lies the town of Ingram. This community of about 1,800 people is almost a combo of several towns in its vicinity, in that it’s taken advantage of local resources and has capitalized on them to make it a prime example of a Hill Country town. You’ll find farming and ranching in Ingram, wineries that take advantage of the unique local terroir, attractions linked to recreation on the river, and even a model of Stonehenge!

Just east of Hunt in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, you’ll find a marker erected in 2005 that discusses the history of the town and its vicinity. Hunt itself is located 13 miles west of Kerrville, at the junction of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe River. As the historical marker states, the town of Hunt is the ultimate result of three different communities that were founded in more or less the same place!

The Hill Country town of Kendalia is near the Guadalupe River, about halfway between Blanco and Boerne as the crow flies. It’s one of the smaller towns in the region; its population has hovered around 100 the past several decades, and when you count the ranchers and rural dwellers in its ZIP code that number increases to about 350. Nonetheless, Kendalia has a fascinating history all its own.

We do enjoyed the peace and quiet! Jeffrey the horse, the sweet kittie at the door and of course Charley and his herd were entertaining. Loved grilling and watch told movies!
