Bootlegger's Tavern in Bandera

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

Many factors go into making a rental one of the top picks for family vacations in Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World-and the Bootlegger's Tavern House has 'em all! It's got a pretty and serene rural location, yet it's only a mile from downtown Bandera and the fun-filled waters of the Medina River. There's sleeping room for six, cable TV, central air, a swimming pool and a hot tub, and so much more-this pet-friendly and kid-friendly Hill Country haven will be friendly to your budget, too!

Deer roam the grounds of this tree-filled property, and the views of the Hill Country surrounding it can make it hard to believe how close it is to the night life, shopping, and great food of Bandera. Tubing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming on the Medina River is only a couple minutes away, and between the grounds of the Bootleggers Tavern House and Bandera, there's a nice selection of both city and country hikes available. The Hill Country State Natural Area and the Medina River are also both within a half-hour drive.

Ample patio furniture welcomes you to the shaded front patio and roomy back deck, and you and yours are invited to enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub out back! A covered parking spot is right next to the house, and all can savor a Texas-style BBQ on the charcoal grill. Round out your exciting day and reminisce with s'mores and conversation around the fire pit. Smokers in your party may do so, but outside only.

The interior here is cozy, cheery, and charming! Homey furniture adorns the living area, as does an electric fireplace. New appliances grace the fully-equipped kitchen, which adjoins a dining area and bar. All glasses, utensils, and cookware are provided, as are fluffy bed and bath linens. There are two full baths, both with showers, and one with a tub and shower combo. Three bedrooms and four beds provide generous and relaxing sleeping accommodations for up to six, and the laundry room has a front-loading washer and dryer. The retreat also has a gaming/computer room, and the entire space is covered by central air and heating and Wifi Internet service. The living area and master bedroom both have cable TV installed, and there's a land line and excellent cell coverage.

Backroads Reservations would love to pamper your family with this relaxing getaway in the heart of our beloved Hill Country. Contact us and make it happen today!

We had a wonderful week in the Texas Hill Country at the Bootleggers Tavern- it was the perfect coronavirus escape. Lots of land to social distance and we really enjoyed the private pool and hot tub. As well as the fire pit. Our family absolutely loved it. We can’t thank the private manager and housekeeper enough because they are top notch.

We enjoyed our stay in Bandera and the pool was a wonderful treat after hiking in 100 degree Texas heat! Great communication with the rental company, too! The home was very quiet, lots of wildlife (deer hopped the fence into the backyard), beds were comfy and we really wanted to take the shower in the master back home with us. Thanks for opening your home! We had a great, long weekend. :)

Bootlegger's Tavern is a very comfortable home located in a nice, quiet neighborhood close to Main Street. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped and the bedrooms were very nice. Deer were abundant and fed in the mornings and evenings just on the other side of the backyard fence. We were very pleased with the accommodations!

We were totally pleased with this rental. We place this in our "Top Five Category". The place was immaculate, well furnished, and provided a sense of Home Away From Home. The response from Management and even the owner was immediate, and minor issues were immediately resolved. We will certainly look to rent this lovely home, if our travels ever take us to Bandera again.
