Seeking a hidden valley getaway in a beautiful Hill Country setting? Valle Escondido near Tarpley takes its name from the Spanish for "hidden valley," and it's a peaceful and comfortable guest home that sleeps up to 15 people. You'll enjoy on-the-spot extras like a cool spring-fed creek, a firepit, and an enormous patio surrounded by inspiring mountain views, and it's conveniently located near towns like Tarpley, Bandera, and Pipe Creek. All the best of town and country awaits you here!

Valle Escondido is an ideal vacation rental for the whole family; the entire property is kid and pet-friendly! You'll be surrounded by great big Texas skies, breathtaking mountain views, and it's a fantastic spot to watch birds and wildlife. Remember, too, that the tubing fun of the Medina River is nearby, as are the Lost Maples and Hill Country State Natural Areas. You'll be at the very heart of the "country" aspects of the Hill Country!

Closer to home, a spring-fed creek on the property creates a refreshing swimming hole and angler's spot for catch-and-release fishing (water levels vary seasonally; please check with us before booking). There's a huge patio complete with comfortable outdoor furniture, too. The main home and guest cabin share the creek, shaded pavilion, and picnic area, and there's a big smoker and picnic tables set up for great family BBQ feasts! Add to that a tree swing, volleyball court, and fire pit; you'll find plenty of entertainment outdoors. Need more room? The guest cabin has space for up to four more people.
Natural light fills the interior spaces with delightful decor collected from the property owner's travels. All rooms include air-conditioned comfort, and there's Wifi Internet service throughout. Amenities and extras abound here! There's a spacious dining area, two living areas with satellite TVs (one has a fireplace), a dedicated workstation, an entire country kitchen, and even a study with its double bed. The ranch overseer will even cook country-fresh outdoor meals for you for a reasonable added fee; let us know if you'd like this pampering option!

Two of the three bedrooms at Valle Escondido have their own private entrances! All told, nine beds here offer comfortable slumber for up to 15 guests.
