This waterfront vacation rental is perfect for a small family, with beautiful Hill Country views everywhere you turn! Outdoor aficionados will love the park-like setting of the spacious property, and it's just a short drive from the Hill Country State Natural Area.

With the cypress-lined and crystal-clear Medina River nearby, you can enjoy swimming, tubing, fishing, and wildlife watching-or a leisurely walk along the river. It's the perfect spot to clear your head; the sounds of the river can be very therapeutic! The porch, complete with ample patio furniture, runs the length of the cabin-and it's shaded for your comfort. Want to whip up a hearty outdoor dinner? There's a charcoal grill here, too; just be sure to grab some charcoal for cooking. Cast your gaze skyward on clear nights for great stargazing!

The inside of the cabin is decorated in a Lone Star and cowboy theme-perfect for its location near Bandera! The seating area features a TV and DVD player, along with a selection of titles to enjoy. The kitchen and dining area (with an island and bar stools) is furnished with appliances and utensils, dishes, and glasses. The cabin has a queen-sized bed and a twin, providing sleeping room for three. The full bathroom here features a walk-in shower, and all bed and bath linens are provided-however, we ask you bring towels to use when on or in the river. Box air conditioning and heating units are on hand for year-round comfort, and good cell service is provided in the area.

Highly recommend! Private and remote yet close enough to town. Exactly what the website stated. We will return.

The cabin is sweet and I felt like I had thousands of acres of privacy. Really good communication with the hosts and management company. Just what I needed to destress and relax!

I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about this place! My husband and I came up for the week for our anniversary. This was the perfect location! You drive through beautiful landscape to get here, I just love the hills! The property is very easy to find. Once we drove through the gate, we were greeted by the cutest little blonde friend (cows.) The cabin is so cute, and the bed is amazingly comfy and the AC is amazingly cold! The kitchen is fully stocked, and even has a full set of cast iron cookware - which i of course loved! Now let’s talk about the river - Omigosh! It’s just a short little ride from the cabin down to the river. The owners have kept the area beautiful, and we had several picnics out on the grass. There are several entry points into the river from this spot. It is a perfect swimming area! The water feels amazing and is crystal clear! We spent most of the week floating in our tubes, I highly recommend bring some! We caught catfish, perch and a huge bass right there! Bring your fishing poles too! We have seen so many deer! HUGE groups of Axis and Whitetail! Lots of turkeys and even saw a little gray fox. Town is just a short ride, and we frequented OST for breakfast several times. It is so good and surprisingly cheap. TJ’s has great margaritas! Mi Pueblo is awesome for tacos and even homemade horchata! Lowe’s is very well stocked and we were able to find all the groceries we needed! It’s a great town! All-in-all, this trip was exactly what we needed! Life during COVID has been so chaotic. This was the perfect place for us to just find the peace we so desperately need at times, and to just recharge. I love this place and truly hope to come back! ❤️

Everything exceeded my expectations from the location, amenities (including an awesome smoker grill, omg), private river access, and the random swing under a tree...just WOW! It was so nice to escape the pandemic and stay somewhere in a beautiful location. It was a full ranch experience that I was not expecting! I came in one evening and there were three cows that greeted me after I came in the gate. There’s a little pond by that gate that is frequented by deer and buzzards (of all things.) I wanted to get away from humans so this was perfect! I hope to come back someday. Bandera stole a piece of my heart

I wanted peacefulness/tranquility (away from technology and the city life), be immersed in nature and to top it off my own private river section. It was better then I expected and will definitely go again. The host was amazing and answered all my questions, I have no complaints!
