Property Description

No one gets left behind when you visit the Roadrunner Canyon Ranch, just eight miles from Leakey! It's a magical riverside vacation rental with tons of comforts and amenities, it's kid- and pet-friendly, It's ADA compliant, and has comfy sleeping space for up to 10 people. You'll be surrounded by jaw-dropping canyon and mountain views and plenty of wildlife, all in a peaceful and roomy vacation home. This family-friendly rental has everything that draws people to the big and beautiful Hill Country!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

Roadrunner Canyon Ranch sits alongside the West Frio on ten gorgeous acres! It's a certified wildlife habitat, with natural wildflowers and plants that grow in a pristine prairie setting, which attracts lots of wildlife to the area. Nature lovers adore this waterside ranch setting, and the views of the sunsets over the mountains and river are amazing! (With the canyon setting, there's no cell service, so you'll need a Wifi compatible phone)

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.

Plentiful windows allow natural light to fill the interior at Roadrunner Canyon Ranch, and the home is kept comfy with central air, heat, and ceiling fans. The living area and master bedroom have Roku-ready TVs. 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. The kitchen is equipped with modern appliances, and there's even a dedicated coffee station! Need to keep up with laundry? There are two stackable washers and dryers!

Three spacious bedrooms with eight beds (two kings in the master rooms, and four doubles and two singles in the bunk room) provide restful slumber after a day of adventure! The bunk room also features its own exterior access. The two full baths have showers with double shower heads, and clean linens are provided for all bedding and bath spaces.

What guests are saying...

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!
