Property Description

For your next visit to the Texas Hill Country, treat your crew to an amazing waterfront cabin, ideal for a family getaway! The Rocky River House on the Medina River is a spacious, family-friendly guest house with private access to the river, just blocks away from downtown Bandera. Whether you're seeking relaxation, fun, or adventure, this beautiful and budget-friendly rental is uniquely appointed and located to provide everything you'll need for a memorable and exciting Hill Country retreat!

Deer roam the grounds, and the horses from the adjacent Mayan Guest Ranch graze nearby, giving the locale a soothing country feel, even though it's close to the shops and night life of Bandera. A stone stairway trails from the back of the house to the tubing, fishing, and swimming of the Medina, right in your backyard! With room to sleep up to nine, this is an ideal family destination.

Two shaded decks behind the house are replete with patio furniture, ceiling fans and a stereo; it's the perfect place to greet the day, take in the river views, or just decompress. Enjoy quiet moments and full family gatherings alike on the porch swings and around the fire pit-and firewood is included. Show off your BBQ skills on the charcoal grill, too!

The interior is enormous, tastefully creating a comfortable and welcoming environment. Upstairs is a master suite with a king-sized bed, fireplace, bathroom with a shower and tub combo, and access to the upper deck. The two bedrooms downstairs feature two large beds and a one up/two down bunk bed; overall, the house offers warm slumber for up to seven adults and two children. There's also a second bathroom downstairs, with a shower and tub combo, and all bed and bath linens are provided.

Another fireplace graces the roomy living area downstairs, which includes a cable-equipped flat-screen TV. That's not all, though; more cable TVs can be found in each of the bedrooms, and the master suite and living area TVs also have DVD players. Wifi Internet service is available here, as is excellent cell phone coverage. Upstairs and down, the home is kept comfortable with central AC and heating and ceiling fans. There's a full kitchen, and the home also has a laundry room.

This waterfront cabin getaway, loaded with amenities and extras, is an exceptional vacation home for you and your family! Contact us at Backroads Reservations today for booking details.

Great location right on the water. Helpful hosts who were more than willing to offer up tips on what to do and where to eat. It was great!

This is a fabulous property with a great view of the creek. It was really nice to sit outside on the deck or swing and watch all the deer.
