Property description

Get away to the Texas hill country.... ...take a drive along Hwy 39... ...piddle a while in Kerrville or Fredericksburg... ...then come home and enjoy the cozy comforts of this charming cottage by the river. Fully furnished 2-bdrm +loft / 2 bath cottage, all bills paid: ADORABLE and Pet-Friendly! Monthly price includes wifi, satellite TV, and all utilities. Screened-in porch, fenced area for pets, laundry room with washer and dryer, barbeque pit, bird feeders, greenhouse, garden area, and access to a private river park make this the perfect stay for anyone, any couple, any family!

This charming stonewall cottage sits a block from the beautiful Guadalupe River on half an acre with fields on three sides, so it feels very private and rural. The house is very bright and cheery with two bedrooms and a loft that leads to a cozy sleeping area on one side and an inviting reading nook or rocking spot on the other. The living room and dining room are the center of the cottage, with all other rooms connected to it.

From the living room you can step out onto the screened porch and from there you can let the dogs out into the fenced area and sit a while in the swing or on the small patio. It's a perfect spot for drinking your morning coffee and watching the deer and the birds feed all around.

Once it heats up, put on your suit, grab your float, and head down the road just a short walk (like a city block) to cool off in the Guadalupe! There are lounge chairs under huge cypress trees, so if you don't feel like taking the plunge, you can relax, read a book, or watch the birds instead.

Come nightfall, it's time to fire up the Char-Boy and watch the stars come out! If all the beds are full, pull out the sofa bed or bring a few blow-up mattresses and set up camp in the loft or on the porch.

You'll fall in love with the property and the's Hill Country Heaven!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: This place put a spell on me, and I HAD to have it! I plan to make this my home in a few years, but until then, I will share it with vacationers and enjoy getting to know people from all over the world! I taught for 30 years...been widowed for almost finished raising 3 amazing children with the help of lots of family, friends, and teachers... have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a cockatiel...and love to clean! When I retire and move to Ingram to live permanently, I would like to sew, quilt, and travel in a Class A motorhome all over the U.S. and Canada.

Why the Owner Chose Ingram:
I grew up going to Camp Arrowhead, and for the past 11 years I've been taking my own kids to Vista Camps and now Camp Mystic. I ran across this house on the Internet before taking my daughter to camp a few summers ago, made an appointment to see it, and that was it! I love being out here in the peace and quiet of the country but still being close to Kerrville and San Antonio. This is my Heaven, what makes my heart sing!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The birds, the deer, the stars, the quiet! Sleeping upstairs in the loft during the winter is special, too. It feels like I am camping out! And I can look out at night and see the Rio Vista sign lit up in the hills!!!
