Property description

NEW SPECIAL! $195 EACH WEEK-NIGHT! CHECK OUR REVIEWS; COME ON OUT!! (Does not apply to summer bookings.)

Mountain View Lodge lies on the western edge of the scenic Texas Hill Country, offering spectacular views and sunsets--great for gatherings large or small. This modern, 2-story (2,500 sq ft) lodge is along crystal-clear, spring-fed Pulliam creek (Middle Prong of the Nueces River), which is ideal for swimming, tubing, and snorkeling. A 5-ft-deep swimming hole is at the lodge. Nearby is a large natural spring.

The Lodge sits high above the creek with a lovely, panoramic mountain view. The area is Nueces Canyon, home to many species of birds and other wildlife. The Lodge is located 6 miles north of Camp Wood and 28 miles west of Leakey, near Barksdale, on a 23-acre ranch.

Free wireless internet access now available (wifi).

There are large living areas upstairs and downstairs with a southwestern decor. The main living area is upstairs, which includes a large kitchen/dining area, a living room, and two bedrooms. Downstairs is an entertainment area and more bedrooms.

Accommodations: Upstairs (main living area) has 2 bedrooms with king-sized beds sleeping 4 people. Downstairs are recreational accommodations and beds for 8 people. Each level has a fireplace and a full bath.

Large decks on both levels provide majestic hill country views and a comfortable setting for relaxation. The fully equipped kitchen includes a microwave and a dishwasher. The downstairs deck includes a barbecue grill for outdoor cooking. Also downstairs are a washer and dryer.

Weather conditions: It is not just summertime that's great in the Hill Country. Fall, spring, and even winter are some of the most wonderful weather days. The water source for the Lodge is from a well tapped into the nearby spring aquifer--an extra treat. It's processed through a water softener just to remove the hardness and is really great quality water--classic Hill Country.

Pets ages 1 year or over are welcome.

Car: Necessary

Other activities in the area include hiking, birding, photography, summer rodeos, floating the Nueces River, and exploring the limitless miles of scenic country roads. Two of the most scenic highways in Texas are Hwy 55 between Barksdale and Rocksprings, and Hwy 337 between Medina, Vanderpool, Leakey and Camp Wood.

Take the 7-mile drive from Barksdale to Vance along Hwy 335. At one of the ranches look for giraffe, kangaroo, camel, antelope, zebra and other exotic wildlife. From Vance, drive another 2.6 miles to a beautiful overlook of the Nueces. It is this river that carries water from the Frio and Sabinal to the Gulf of Mexico, and was once the disputed southern border with Mexico. Consider it the 'mother' river of the Hill Country!

Don't miss 'Quince,' an old-time, crystal-clear, 15-ft-deep Nueces River swimming hole outside Camp Wood; or the beautiful Nueces River dam south of Camp Wood; or all-you-can-eat at the popular Casa Falcon in Camp Wood (wear your cowboy hat!).
