Medina Lake chateau / country house description

Gorgeous Lake View Home on Medina Lake. Beautiful open-style house, living room and kitchen on second floor to maximize view of lake. Three bedrooms downstairs, master with spa-style tub, loft with den upstairs from living area. 3 floors to this house. 2 car garage. Quiet, secluded ranch that covers 2000 acres, has permanent residents, and includes cows, deer, turkeys, and various other wild life seen in the Texas Hill country. Look out on Medina Lake from the deck while barbequing dinner, listen to the absolute quiet, except the birds and insects, and sometimes the sound of jet skis on the lake. On July 4th enjoy the fireworks display by the lake residents while sitting on the deck, in full view but far enough away to see the entire show. Within one hour drive you can visit Kerrville, Fredricksburg, Castroville and San Antonio.

Red's Cove is another boat launch location and there is a small restaurant there too. ON CR 271 just before Red's Cove there is Wally's Water Sports, where there are tubes and water skis for rent. Additionally for those with their own boat, dock available on ranch if lake is high enough, otherwise put-ins also available at Joe's Place. I don't know of anywhere in the area where they rent jet-skis, but if you have your own you can launch from Joe's or Red Cove....moreless

                                        The House was beautiful, clean, and everything worked perfectly. The owner was available, and very pleasant. We were dissapointed, in that the lake is dried up. Planned on going fishing. Something that should be mentioned is how remote the property really is. About 45 min. to the nearest shopping, and resteraunts. However we did enjoy the remote, quiet atmosphere.

                                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                                        Lovely home. Remote and peaceful. Only thing we would note is it took a bit to warm up the house and we would have liked to have had more towels. Those are minor issues and did not take away from our stay. Great place for families to relax and unwind away from the chaos of day to day life. We had a great time!

                                        Owner response: Thank you so much for your input. I always welcome feedback and I will take note of the towel situation. We were having unusually cold weather for your stay, but once the house is warm I know it is very cosy. Thanks again for being our guests.

                                        The house is elegantly laid out - exactly as in the photos. Very spacious, clean and comfortable with good furnishings. We were three families with children ranging from 8 to 17. The owner had provided us with useful (and honest) information about things to do in the area – which really came in handy in organizing activities for the kids. In addition to the three bedrooms and twin beds in the loft, the owners had provided an air mattress along with ample sheets/pillows/ towels for all. The kids had a blast “camping” out in the loft. The kitchen was spacious and had everything needed to cook (and bake!) for the extended family. The house sits on a hillside overlooking the city of San Antonio in the distance. The view of the surrounding hills from the deck is serene and the perfect setting for a relaxing barbeque (and many beers!). Be prepared for a bit of a drive to/from the property, though – but that only adds to the charm and exclusiveness of this rental. The owners have obviously built a house which they are proud to call their home. Probably our best VRBO rental experience so far!

                                        Owner response: We so enjoyed meeting you and your large family, and loved hearing about the fun times you all had together at our house.

                                        The house is great except it isn't children friendly. Too many steps and no safety on the cabinets and plugs. The Kitchen is on the second level of the home. Steps to climb to put groceries, etc away. Found some railing on the steps to be disconnected from the railing (fall hazard for children). Need TVs in the master bedroom and apartment. We would use them again for an adult trip or for our older children but, not for little ones.

                                        Owner response: Thank you so much for your input. I'm sorry you didn't realize that there were a lot of steps, I had hoped that the pictures made that pretty clear, however I will be sure to emphasize that to future renters. We found the loose rail (thank you) and have repaired it. Bernie

                                        We were lucky to have rented the house for the whole month of July, and the kids (aged 7, 9, & 10) and I had a great time. The house was beautiful, and equipped with just about everything you could need. The views from the deck were spectacular, and I especially enjoyed sitting outside at night after the kids had gone to bed. Bernie was great to work with, very prompt with her replies, and always looking out for us. The house is somewhat remote, which Bernie was clear to point out, but we thoroughly enjoyed the serenity, the scenery, the privacy, the wildlife, etc. We still were able to enjoy all the fun activities that San Antonio has to offer, but at the end of the day, we were happy to return to our little piece of heaven. We got a great taste of the "Texas Hill Country" and hope to be back again next year. My only regret was that we weren't able to meet Bernie in person to say "thanks".

                                      Year Purchased: 2007

                                      About the owner: My husband and I, along with many of our friends, have enjoyed lots of get togethers and evenings with friends at this house. We have brought our dogs from time to time, but they are outside dogs, we don't allow them inside.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Medina Lake:
                                      The house is close to San Antonio where we live and we can be there within an hour. We also are avid sailors around Lake Medina.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                                      We love to have friends come with us, but some of our most enjoyable times are just getting away for a quiet weekend when we've had a hectic week at work.
