River Ridge Cabin on the Medina

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

This one's a gem! If you're looking for a roomy vacation rental for up to ten people, all in the setting of a waterfront cabin getaway with stunning views of the Texas Hill Country, well-let us introduce you to the River Ridge Cabin! Everything about this place is generous: the amenities, the roster of things to do (both along the Medina River and in nearby Bandera), the welcoming and comforting space inside, and more. Your family and friends will rave about this hideaway spot for years!

There are plenty of cabins for rent in Bandera County, but none with the room, ambiance, river access, and amenities like you'll find here! This kid-friendly getaway is the perfect spot for your next family gathering, with sleeping room for up to ten people, and entertaining space for plenty more. The River Ridge Cabin offers breathtaking views indoors and out, with its riverside setting and Hill Country vistas you just can't find anywhere else.

Your perch on the banks of the Medina River-complete with your own private access there - provide the perfect setting for tubing, fishing, wildlife watching, and just kicking back. Its shaded, open-air porch, screened-in porch, breezeway, and fire pit give you almost endless entertainment options, and there's a charcoal grill out back for you to fire up, as well. This location is a perfect jumping-off spot for scenic auto and motorcycle tours of the surrounding Hill Country. There's also covered parking available for several vehicles.

Warm, dark wood paneling and ample windows give the interior of the cabin that Hill Country charm, and there's a spacious living and social area with a fireplace, too. There are three bedrooms: two with king beds, and one with bunk bed combos, that provide sleeping space for up to ten. The master bath has a shower and Jacuzzi tub, and the second bathroom has a tub and shower combo. All bed and bath linens are provided, as are basic kitchen utensils. The kitchen itself is very generously appointed, and there's even an island bar that seats ten. Rounding out your amenities are a satellite TV and DVD player, Internet access, a washer/dryer combo, and air conditioning and heating.

One call to Backroads Reservations, and you'll soon be enjoying one of the most beautiful riverfront cabins in Bandera! One visit, and you'll want to come back again and again to this peaceful and spacious Medina River hideaway.

What guests are saying...

June, 2020
We had a wonderful mini vacation here. The cabin was cozy and welcoming with very lovely decor. We enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife (deer, armadillo, squirrels, and raccoons) come and go across the property. We loved going down to the river and then coming back to relax on the back porch and make s’mores on the fire pit. We couldn’t have had a better time. This was our first time in Bandera. We had takeout from the China Bowl and The Dough Joe. Both were very good. We also went hiking at the Hill Country Natural State Area. It was beautiful. This is a great place for families and an area rich with local history and beautiful landscapes. Our host was great at communicating important information and we loved the extra precautions to ensure that we had a safe stay. We’d love to visit again!

Was a great experience for my boys. Downfall was my parents couldn't experience their grandchildren by the river. We still had fun over the weekend.

Super spacious and comfortable!! It is accurate to say this is a ‘home away from home.’ House is quiet and private from surrounding homes. Watching deer eat corn in the front yard was very peaceful and entertaining! I would love to stay here again next year!

the place is very nice the view is also good stairways a bit steep for older people young maybe not so much but shaded as you go down to the river the kitchen is very spacious for people who like to cook I did like the stove and plenty of room in the refrigerator and pantry of room on the Island great for all of your stuff the house is in a perfect spot to where you can do a 2 and 1/2 hour River Ride walk up to the house grab a bite to eat and if you'd like you can take another 2 and 1/2 hour to the park and drive back to the house the house is about a halfway point perfect we very much enjoyed our stay there
