House was located within a few miles of Bandera, which was perfect for our stay. The walk down to the river was nice. Had a nice fire pit. Plenty of room for everyone in our group. Never even watched TV, was too busy enjoying the back porch and being outside and riding our bikes. Place had everything we needed for our stay. Would definitely recommend to friends.

Great house right on the river. Kids spent so much time playing in the river, I'm surprised they didn't grow fins! Great communication with owners. Will be back!

Off the beaten path, this home offers a level of peace and tranquillity. The rive access is great and perfect in depth.
