Hunt house description

Beautiful family sized home with easy and private Guadalupe River access. This is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Texas Hill Country. We’re ten minutes west of Hunt along one of the prettiest stretches of country road in Texas – convenient to summer camps and off-season activities.

We're high enough on the hill to have tree top views of the Guadalupe River Valley and just a short hike down the trail to the home owner association river park with canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats. There is a private dam just below the park so the water stays high even in the driest summers.

The house will sleep nine: There is a queen bed and private bathroom with tub in the master. The upstairs bedroom has its own balcony and private bathroom with shower. The middle two bedrooms have a trundle bed (2 singles - great for kids), a single and double bed and share a bath with laundry room.

The dining area seats eight – six at the table and two at the breakfast bar. The family room has a high beam ceiling and a large sliding glass window to enjoy the view. If you can’t leave your technology at home there is wireless internet and satellite TV. The house has every amenity needed for a comfortable stay (oven, fridge, dishwasher, fresh linens, etc). Nothing extra is needed; just bring some groceries, a bathing suit and free time to enjoy it!

Outside we have two spacious decks with Hill Country views. Drink your morning coffee on the side deck and watch the sun rise. Enjoy an evening glass of wine while star gazing on the front deck. Guests often see deer and fox passing through the yard. There is a hammock, a porch swing, and outside eating area with gas grill.

Small dogs considered individually: We understand that pets are a part of the family. At the same time, we have to keep in mind that guests with allergies cannot tolerate any trace of a pet in the house. Dogs weighing less than 20 pounds will be allowed on prior approval only with a pet charge of $10 per day per pet, $500 refundable pet deposit, and a non-refundable pet cleaning fee of $50. No cats.

                            With my parents visiting all the way from Europe, we managed to book the cottage last minute for winter break. We had a lovely time exploring Lost Maples State Park, Fredericksburg, Luckenbach and the Garner State Park. The cottage offered everything we needed, even more then we expected. We had a great time making s'mores in the firepit and the children enjoyed the large backyard very much.

                            This was our first trip to Texas Hill Country and because of our AMAZING experience we will be back again and again. Our sons, 8 & 5 years old, were instantly transformed into little cowboys and had many adventures around the huge yard. We took full advantage of the river park, complete with a rope swing and kayaks. The house felt like home, was extremely clean, and had everything we could possibly need. The Hunt House is an ideal base for some cool day trips. One of our favorites was to Lost Maples State Park for hiking. We capped off each day around the fire pit, surrounded by a Texas starry sky. Michelle made everything easy and had tons of tips for fun local adventures and experiences. We can't wait to come back!!

                            As you may know, it's not easy pleasing teenagers...... Well, we had FOUR with us and they all had an amazing time. We brought along the xbox and ps, which kept the boys entertained, while the girls loved the wifi access for communicating with their boyfriends! Yes, we did go outside! First time kayakers took to it like pros!.. After some minor repairs on the paddle boat, we had it going great, too.... Spent every evening on the deck just chillin... Have been vacationing together for several years and this was theBEST yet!!!! Already planning to attend next year... Thanks SO much for sharing your home with us :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

                            Owner response: We love hearing our guests enjoy the house as much as we do. We can harldy wait to get back down there and spend a few evenings star gazing on the porch in September. Danny fixed the paddle boat last time we were there too, so we'll look at it a little closer this trip & see if it needs to be replaced. I think our guests are the primary users so it could be our contribution to the HOA.

                            My family had a great time at this Hunt vacation house. The location of the house is very private, sitting on top of a hill with a great view. It is an easy walk to a great stretch of river for swimming or using the canoes and kayaks that come with the house. The house itself was nice, set up well, had little things that you need for a short stay but are a pain to bring. The owner Michelle was very good and fast at communicating. All in all it was everything we hoped it would be and more!

                            My friends and I had an amazing stay at the beautiful river house in Hunt! The house was clean and welcoming, and had all the things we needed. The rooms were a great size, and there were plenty of bathrooms for everyone. Our favorite part of the house was the amazing outdoor space. Their was ample room for people to sit and for the kids to run around. I just wish we could have taken advantage of the two fire pit areas.... maybe next time! The walk to the river wasn't too much of a hassle, and it was nice to have a private area on the river where toys, tables, and swings to use. I would definitely recommend this home to any group of family our friends looking for a great place to getaway for a short or long stay!

                            This was a wonderful place to spend our summer getaway. The house is comfortable inside and out. The decks outside offer great views during the day and awesome stargazing at night. The river access is super - a very short walk down the hill across the road. The private park at the river had all the kids (ages 3 to 13) thoroughly entertained. The older kids kayaked and explored the flats, while the little ones just splashed around and watched the fish swimming in the clear water. The other highlight was sliding down the dam at Ingram. We paid $3 to park at the Dam Store and kids had a blast for hours. We had a nice lunch at the friendly Hunt Store. Mom and oldest daughter enjoyed a tour of the James Avery headquarters just outside Kerrville. Mostly though, we just played at the river. There were games and a nice TV and DVD player at the house for downtime. Owners are helpful and easy to work with. All in all this was a great place for our family!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: Danny grew up in Del Rio and San Antonio and has family in and around Kerrville. He introduced Michelle to Texas Hill Country in Hunt. We both fell in love with the Guadalupe River and it's beautiful cypress tree canopy on one of Michelle's first visits to Hill Country. We live full time in Anchorage, Alaska and plan to spend more time each year at our home in Hunt.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hunt:
                          We love the Hunt area and the Guadalupe River! We stayed at many vacation rentals in the area before we decided we want to retire here. The accessibility of the river park without the riverside price was what drew us to this particular house. It feels so private - other riverside rentals we stayed in have neighbors right next door or multiple rentals on-site. Even though we're in a subdivision - it feels like we're out in the country. The previous owner's western decor made it feel homey right away and - did we mention - the Guadalupe River is just down the trail?

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          One of the things we most look forward to when staying at our Hunt vacation house is family gatherings on the huge deck. After all the years of living away and counting on someone else to hold a get together when we visit - we finally get to host them! Another favorite & practically nightly activity is star gazing on the front porch with a glass of wine. There is so little light interference out here that the stars are amazingly bright!
