Property Description

The Cabin at River Run serves up everything for those who love the great outdoors! This five-acre spread on the banks of the Guadalupe River is the perfect setting for fishing, swimming, or a relaxing tube ride on the water.

Inside and out, the luxurious amenities at the Cabin at River Run makes it one of the best river cabins in the Texas Hill Country!

There's no better way to savor the Texas Hill Country than the riverside setting of the Cabin at River Run!

The property shares access to the Guadalupe River with two other cabins and several RV's, but on this spacious lot, neighborly congeniality is assured!

Since the Cabin at River Run is a tree-lined riverfront property, you'll have your own little slice of the Guadalupe to use as you please! Fish or swim from the shore, or use the natural tube shoot (located right by the nearby island) for a peaceful float down the river. Just want to kick back? No problem! There's a shaded deck, picnic table, and charcoal grill for your outdoor gatherings-all decked out with patio furniture. This weekend getaway cabin is also pet-friendly; bring your four-legged friends along, let them romp, or take them along on a sightseeing hike. Animal lovers will be rewarded when they catch a glimpse of the wildlife that uses the Guadalupe to wet their whistles.

Inside, you'll find a warm and welcoming Lone Star-themed decor, with a queen bed and double futon that comfortably sleep up to four. There's a bath with shower, satellite TV with a DVD player, and heat and A/C for inside comfort. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, oven and range top, fridge and coffee pot.

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!

25 May


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.

It is a lovely cabin. Comfortable for three grown adults and a dog. My dog loved the huge yard to run free and make new friends. The people live in the area where friendly. Best part was the River, hear birds singing and watch deer eat in the field only a few feet away from you. It was a lovely place. It’s mom and dog approved 😆 Thanks for checking up on us during our stay and making us feel welcome
Total gem on the Guad! Love this dog friendly scenic property right near the river. David, the host, was attentive, friendly, and treated us like a true neighbor. He made us feel at home, we don’t think the trip would have been the same with out his accommodations! Couldn’t have asked for a better mini getaway! We will define you be returning!
This is a SPOT! My children (3,5,19) and I enjoyed everything! We are coming back. “Mr. David”, as my children call him, was AhhMazing! We will definitely book again. ??????????
“As always it was a pleasure staying with Backroads. Our host was more than hospitable. Amongst the wildlife we got to enjoy his cute little dog, Honey Mae, who greeted us every morning.”
Backroads is the perfect spot for a long weekend. Beautiful piece of property that borders the Guadalupe. The cabin was immaculate but we wanted to spend most of our time outside anyway! We enjoyed watching the deer, sitting in the river and the amazing view of the stars at night. We have already recommended this spot to several friends
Cabin had everything we needed, and the property is GORGEOUS! Feed the deer in the morning or evening, enjoy the river just STEPS from the front door, and soak in some nature! David the manager is extremely courteous, and Backroads Texas was easy to book with, and extremely prompt with communication
