Property Description

The Pavilion House at the Yellow Rose Ranch sets the stage for your ideal getaway in the Texas Hill Country! The headwaters of Hondo creek, along with three lakes, provide a haven for lovers of the outdoors, in tandem with comfortable indoor amenities that make this a well-rounded home away from home, no matter what plans you have for your vacation.

The astounding beauty of the Hill Country walks right up to your door here at the Pavilion House! Trees, prairie, and the waterfront setting set this apart as an excellent lake view vacation rental. Kids and pets are both welcome here, so it's perfect for your family's Texas getaway.

The huge Yellow Rose Ranch is at your disposal for hiking, bird and wildlife watching, stargazing-you name it! With the creek and lakes on the property, you'll enjoy tubing, kayaking, catch-and-release fishing, and swimming-and there's a dock and canoes, too. Please note access to areas of the ranch may be restricted during hunting season; please check on this when you book. Smoking is allowed here, but only outdoors.

Grills, coolers, and furniture aplenty fill out the spacious pavilion, providing a great socializing space for up to 50 visitors-so if you have a special event that needs a roomy venue, where better to host it than this open-air Hill Country location? All the amazing views on the property set the ideal backdrop to create and preserve new memories!

This cedar-frame home features Texas cowboy decor throughout, including the living and dining room spaces, with a cheerful fireplace in the living room. Two bedrooms each feature queen-sized beds, providing sleeping arrangements for up to four. The bathroom has a tub and shower combo, and all bath and bed linens are provided. The large kitchen is decked out with essential appliances, and there's even a washer/dryer combo! The living room features a smart TV with DVD player and Netflix, high-speed Internet, a local land line, and good cell service, too. You'll breathe easy here, with central air conditioning and heat.

All this poises the Pavilion House at Yellow Rose Ranch as perfect for family getaways and retreats. Get a hold of us here at Backroads Reservations, and we'll show you how it glitters like a jewel as the setting for ideal vacations in Texas.

What guests are saying...

This place is a gem. We were glad to find the property and Backroads reservations. I wish there was more historical facts about the property such as details about all the machineries and oil related stuff. My wife and I as well as our dog loved everything. Pictures don’t do justice. The place is amazing. If you are into creeks, lakes, trails, wildlife, quietness and solitude, this is the place. Also, Spencer and Jess were extremely helpful and quick to respond. Spencer Sent me an article he wrote about the many Hill Country towns, scenic routes, wineries, restaurants, and things to do. The reading was really interesting and entertaining. I read it 4 times. Finally, the house is great. The pavillion makes you feel you are in a special farm/ranch, which is exactly what the place is. We loved to stay on the deck listening to the sound of the creek and to take pictures along the many great picture spots. We will be back! Book because you will love it!
Such a beautiful property and place to stay! We had an amazing time disconnecting and spending time outdoors. Their communication was fast, effective and helpful when needed. We loved the local recommendations they sent us on where to eat and what to do, we tried multiple things and loved every one of them. Our favorites were a roadside eatery that was featured on DDD and the trail riding in Bandera. We will absolutely keep this place in mind to visit again in the future!

Beautiful property! Plenty of area to explore. Saw turkey, deer, and other wildlife. Very peaceful. The house had everything you could need. When you come make sure to have everything the closest store is a drive. We were greeted with some delicious cookies that my daughter loved. We can’t wait to go back.
