Let's get to the river! The property has its own direct access to the river, which flows steadily all year long. (This access point isn't ideal for folks with mobility issues, but there are three river crossings close by which are). Bring your kayaks, tubes, and other water toys in order to make the most of your private access!

Outside, you'll find plenty of social space, with a wraparound patio, deck, and a screened-in gazebo, all with plenty of outdoor furniture and shade. For snacks and cookouts, there's a charcoal grill, and even a convenient outdoor sink! The water at the ranch is filtered by a whole-home conditioning system.

Books and games are provided for the kids, as well as a play area with a rock-climbing wall, large slide, and loft-style hideout, with Wifi throughout all rooms.

What guests are saying...

House was beautiful. Updated nicely and very comfortable-we had two families staying, 4 adults and 5 children. The area felt very private and was right by the river. We visited Garner State Park and it wasn't too far of a drive. Would definitely stay again.
We had a great stay at the Roadrunner home! The house was very clean and well stocked. Our kids loved the rock wall, slide, and exploring the property and river. We highly recommend!
We had a lovely stay! If you are looking for a home that is clean, comfortable and quiet; this is the place for you! The frio is so close; literally minutes within walking distance. The host was always available when we had any questions and checked in with our family several times though out our stay. We cannot say enough great things about this property and will definitely be back next year.
This was a really nice home within walking distance to the Frio. Lots of space for two families, and a bunk room that was perfect for the kids. The indoor clubhouse was a big hit. The house is secluded from the road, and there were so many hummingbirds, butterflies, deer, and more. We went in late July and the Frio was high enough for us to stay cool and the kids to splash and explore. Overall a lovely experience!
Great places for the kids to play. Beautiful property. Communication was amazing! Great staff, ready to help!
The house has a beautiful wrap around porch and the owners thought of everything when stocking the house. We will definitely stay here again!
