Vintage Cowboy at 7 Canyons Ranch

Property Type : Guest House

Property Description

As soon as you see the wagon wheel on the front porch, you'll know you're in for a genuine Texas cowboy experience! This unique vintage cottage (or "barndominium," as we like to call it) sets the stage for your Lone Star vacation, combining the genuine ranch house look with modern amenities-and, though private and quiet, it's all just a short drive from Hill Country towns like Tarpley and Bandera. The spacious outdoor setting and comfy interior make this the perfect spot, through and through!

All the ingredients are here for the perfect vacation rental for your Tarpley getaway here at 7 Canyons Ranch. Its setting on the 22-acre spread (and access to hiking trails and more on the full 500-acre ranch) are an outdoor lover's delight, and the inviting front porch and beautifully decorated interior offer great opportunities for relaxation, for couples and solo travelers alike.

A shaded porch runs the entire length of the cabin's front, perfect for romantic conversations or simply regaining your peace of mind. Fishing, hiking, wildlife watching, and star gazing are all available at your back door here. Guests love exploring the wide-open spaces, and this is a perfect rental for exploring the countryside. The Vintage Cowboy property is also an ideal "extra" for those renting the nearby lodge, so be sure to ask us for details for such an arrangement. A charcoal grill and fire pit is on-site here, too, and of course the entire landscape is highlighted by those amazing Hill Country views! Smokers are welcome, as long as they do so outside.

As much as we like to highlight the vistas outside, the interior here is a knockout, too! Rustic bunkhouse furniture and other touches give the place a genuine look and feel that says "Texas" all over. A queen-sized bed provides comfortable sleeping for two adults, and overall comfort is assured with central air and heating. The bathroom includes both a shower and tub, and all bath and bed linens are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, utensils, cookware, plates, and glasses. Finally, the cabin is outfitted with Wifi, as well.

The Hill Country region surrounding Tarpley and Bandera is known for its rich cowboy history, and 7 Canyons Ranch offers one of the best authentic cowboy experiences you'll find. Come see for yourself-relaxation, fun, and a memorable getaway in a scenic country setting can all be yours when you call us at Backroads Reservations!

Some say tiny Tarpley is easy to miss; those folks just don't know what they're missing! The Hill Country surrounds Tarpley, offering some of the most beautiful views in Texas. Check out Mac and Ernie's Roadside Eatery, which has been featured on two shows on the Food Network for their cuisine.
