Property Description

Turn-of-the-century charm (we're talking 20th century here, of course), modern comforts and amenities, and the breathtaking beauty of the Texas Hill Country, all come together here in one of the best country cottage getaways in the Lone Star State! The roomy and inviting Mighty Oaks Retreat will fill the bill, whether you're looking for a family getaway or a romantic weekend away from the daily grind. It's remote, yet just down the road from the charming towns of D'Hanis and Hondo.

COVID-19 UPDATE: This accommodation is open for business. Backroads Reservations is aware of the proper cleaning and disinfecting measures needed between guests. We have provided this guidance to our hosts and housekeepers so that everyone takes the necessary precautions to protect the health of our guests, hosts and housekeepers alike. In addition, for rentals with same day turn-overs, we have increased the hours between check-in and check-out to give extra time between cleanings. Message us for more details, if needed.

Built in 1904, the Mighty Oaks Retreat has been beautifully maintained and restored, evoking both its 100+ years of history and a sense of modern luxury. This kid-friendly and pet-friendly cottage ranks up there as one of our most popular country house vacation rentals-one look, and you'll see why!

Behind the cottage, under the cooling shade of the trees, are country rockers for you to kick back in-and, should you need more space, there's also a shaded veranda with a comfy conversation pit for larger gatherings. A charcoal grill is also on hand for open-air dining. The property has 352 acres with a seasonal pond and the wide-open rural setting is ideal for hiking, bird and wildlife watching, and stargazing, and the property is surrounded by miles of country roads that are a sightseer's delight-perfect for a motorcycle tour! The rugged and scenic countryside is the perfect backdrop for a calming and authentic Texas vacation.

Inside, central air and heating assures comfort, and there's a spacious living room to socialize in-with a fireplace, too. There's also a cozy little alcove that would serve equally well as a kid's play space or romantic snuggling spot. The kitchen's fully equipped with both appliances and basic utensils, and its centerpiece is a wood-topped island with stools. Mighty Oaks has two bedrooms-one with a King-sized bed, the other with two queens, and a sun room with a sofa pull out-sleeping up to six guests. Both bathrooms are equipped with roomy vintage tubs and the master also has a shower. All bathroom and bedroom linens are provided, as well, and there's a combo washer and dryer on site. Rounding out your modern tech needs are satellite TV, Wifi, and good cell coverage.

If you're looking for a guest house for rent in D'Hanis, convenient to miles of picturesque rural roads and the town of Hondo, too, the Mighty Oaks Retreat is your Hill Country hideaway! Give us a buzz at Backroads Reservations, and you'll be on your way to a peaceful holiday.

D'Hanis

Step back in time in this historic little Medina County village! The majority of D'Hanis' buildings are from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and they give the town the aura it had when it was originally founded by French and German settlers. This unique and scenic village awaits, perched with the Hill Country as a scenic backdrop!
