Property Description

When it comes to waterfront vacation rentals in the Texas Hill Country, the Bluff House at Rockin' B Ranch stands tall among the best! Its elevated hillside perch allows for some of the best views of the gorgeous countryside. The creek on this 55-acre ranch sets the stage for fun and relaxing water activities, and the knockout amenities in the house-including a hot tub with amazing mountain views-makes it a perfect location for family getaways and retreats. You have to see it to believe it!

This kid- and pet-friendly space is one of our top picks for family vacations in Texas! You'll be surrounded by the natural splendor of the Hill Country, and the shopping, night life, and food of towns like Bandera, Pipe Creek, and Boerne are all just short drives away. Whatever's on your vacation checklist, the Bluff House will satisfy everyone you bring along!

Fish, hike, swim, and even use the available kayaks on the creek on the property, or just relax on the spacious decks that offer eye-popping elevated views of the Hill Country. Wildlife and birds abound, and the skies are perfect for stargazing on crystal-clear Texas nights. There's a fire pit and charcoal grill on hand for socializing and cookouts, and there's no better spot to relax in than the hot tub, right on the hillside! Smoking is fine here, as long as you keep it outside. Since creek depth is seasonal, please ask us about its status when you book.

Most of our guests gasp with surprise when they step inside for the first time! The living area has two walls of two-story windows that bring the stunning views indoors. Barn board and hardwood highlights fill the entire house, and central air, heat, and ceiling fans keep the whole space comfy. Two bedrooms feature two king beds and two queens, and a sleeper sofa that sleeps two guests rounds out comfortable sleeping arrangements for up to eight people.. There's a well-appointed kitchen, and a washer/dryer combo is also available. The two full baths both have showers, and the upstairs one includes a tub, as well. All bed and bath linens are provided for your stay. Finally, there's a smart TV installed with 40 free channels, Roku and a DVD player, and WIFI Internet service.

The combination of modern and natural amenities makes the Rockin' B Ranch Bluff House a perfect vacation destination in the Hill Country! Give us a shout here at Backroads Reservations, and we'll happily set you up in this beautiful holiday destination.

Rockin B has 4 houses on the property. Family reunions and retreats for up to 26 guests are easily accommodated at the Creek View Barndominium, Summit House, Bluff House and the Love Shack spread across the 55 acres.

What guests are saying...

August, 2020
The house and property are beautiful and the pictures are accurate. The interior decor has lots of western charm and the views are truly spectacular. The house is open and airy, though that means you can hear what's going on in every room. The A/C works great, which was especially important in August. We really enjoyed the animals on the property. There are a few horses, we saw deer all the time, as well as a bunch of birds and other woodland creatures. A road runner even came to visit by the picnic table. It's a short drive to Boerne (which has everything you might need) and to Bandera for some good dining and local shopping, but it still feels totally isolated and calm. We used it as a base to visit a few state parks (Gardner, Lost Maples, Guadalupe) and a couple of wineries to the north. In the evenings, we walked our dog, watched hockey playoffs, and relaxed in the hot tub at the end of the deck. The hosts were very responsive and super helpful. We had a great time and would definitely return!

everything kids will love...feeding horses, hiking, swimming in the creek, kayaking, swimming in the jacuzzi, ping pong, homemade meals, and great cuddle time in the open kitchen/family room layout watching movies together! Just what we needed!

Our family of four had a wonderful getaway to this lovely home. The Hill Country breezes kept us cool and the mosquitoes away. Janice and her fiancé were very accommodating and helpful. We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the creek and were able to fish, swim, and kayak. We highly recommend this property. Our only caveat is that the house is one of 4 located on the 55-acre property and the creek is shared. It was never a problem for us but I imagine if all 4 houses are fully rented there may be some time when its hard to physically distance on the dock. That being said we enjoyed our time there and would recommend it.

Rockin B Ranch was the perfect choice for a getaway! The Bluffhouse was a great cabin very open and cozy with an awesome view! The surrounding area is very lush with tons of rivers and creeks to check out. The owner was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Would highly recommend and definitely plan on staying there again in the future!

Was surprised when we realized we had free run of the whole place. Fishing, hiking and exploring. It was a great place to relax.
