BRAND NEW PRIVATE, RIVERFRONT RETREAT (UP TO 23 GUESTS)
Here at the Blanco River Retreat we believe in serving up the best southern hospitality that Texas has to offer. We treat our guests like family, and it's our intention to provide an unforgettable Hill Country experience for our guests. Guests will discover that much of our decor is inspired by the people of our past, and the beautiful flora and fauna that make the Texas Hill Country so special.
The Blanco River Retreat is a newly renovated property situated on 6 riverfront, rolling acres nestled in the heart of the hill county between Wimberley and Blanco, Texas. The Retreat features two riverfront homes that comfortably accommodate 23 guests.
Our Main Lodge is 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms featuring three suites, plenty of entertaining space, and a recreational/bunk room. Each suite has a king sized bed and a private full bathroom. The rec room downstairs has a queen bed, twin bed, a queen pull-out sofa bed with a premium mattress, TV/DVD, wet bar, mini fridge, and full bathroom.
Our farmhouse inspired converted barn is 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The barn has two bedrooms downstairs (one king bedroom and one queen bedroom). Both rooms share a large full bathroom and a half bath on the first floor. An exterior staircase leads to an adorable farmhouse loft that is perfect for families. The upstairs room has a full bathroom, 2 queen beds, 1 full sized bed, a pull out sofa, TV and DVD and a table and chairs for games/puzzles, etc.
The property also features a large, resort style swimming pool, an oversized hot tub large enough to seat 10 people, and a fire pit.
Both houses have amazing views and direct access to the Blanco river with abundant swimming holes and jumping rocks. The two kitchens are brand new with all major appliances and fully stocked with dishes, silverware, barware and serve ware.
Our love and appreciation for the Blanco River and the surrounding Texas Hill Country is at the core of everything we do, and we want to share our little slice of heaven with, well, everyone! So we invite the river dippers, the belly laughers, the story tellers, the long pourers, the grill masters, the hammock nappers, the smores roasters, the horseshoe tossers, the live music listeners, the market day shoppers, the wine tasters, the wedding partiers, the birthday celebrators and all you city escapers ... We welcome you all to come sit by the river and do what you do best with the people you love the most.

Great home away from home in the Hill Country!
The perfect setting for a long overdue reunion with old friends -- enough space to hang together and to find some silence. The evening around the fire pit after an unusually cool day was amazing! The kitchen is well equipped, and the house managers could not have been more attentive -- a great place for an extended family!
Fabulous!! Nature and beauty at your door step.
Beautiful property! Luxurious linens, shampoos, soaps, etc. The furnishings were unique and well made. We didn't need anything except groceries for our group. The pool, hot tub and fire pit entertained our crew the whole weekend, which we spent outside admiring the birds, deer, wildflowers, river, big Texas sky, etc. They graciously provided us with more firewood upon request, and were very responsive and answered all of our questions and requests promptly. We will return!!
Absolutely beautiful and perfect!
Family get together for grandson's wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner at the retreat and had 40 people loving every thing about the property! We had plenty of room for everyone and had a wonderful experience making great family memories! Our biggest regret was we didn't have enough time at this beautiful place! Molly was so helpful and kind to our party! She put out extra tables and chairs for our event! I cannot praise these owners/ managers enough !
Perfect for a large group!
Such a beautiful house on a wonderful property. The owners were so accommodating with our specific time restrictions which made our stay so enjoyable. Will absolutely look into staying here again next year!
Luxurious digs in a relaxing rustic haven!
Stayed here to reconnect with my girlfriends and disconnect from the rat race. Absolutely stunning property and the owners got every.single.detail.right! Owner gave us a grand tour upon arrival, detailing the rich Texas history that inspired each en-suite at the main house. I stayed in the Guest House, where again every detail was covered. Bedside artisan chocolates, hand-crafted soaps and spa masks, plush bedding, and a pristine kitchen we’re waiting for my arrival.
Over the weekend we enjoyed a private yoga session on the deck (talk about a TREAT!), a stunning evening meal on the deck overlooking the river, and overall peace and quiet. A truly relaxing and elegant property that I plan to visit again this year with the extended fam!
Such a wonderful property for a relaxing weekend with big groups! Easily accessible to nearby towns and had great accommodations.
