Designed and built by the owners in 2003 for their idyllic Hill Country escape, this 10 acre site on the Llano river has all the conveniences. Mornings are heavenly on the 500 sq. foot screened porch while enjoying your coffee, watching the birds at the feeders, and taking in the river view. Walk down to the river and enjoy deep swimming holes, great fishing, or just relaxing.
The kitchen is outfitted for everything so that you can prepare your own gourmet meals. Cook outside on a charcoal grill after taking in the "most dramatic" sunset in Texas
The den has plenty of comfortable seating to enjoy your book, a Bose ipdod docking station to enjoy your your music and a 42" flat screen TV/DVD for movies or football-Dish network. On chilly nights light up the wood burning fireplace-gas starter-and kick back until it is time to retire to the bedroom. Master has tempurpedic king bed, 32" flat screen TV and guest has another king bed and double bed, both bedrooms have fully outfitted private bath.
Downtown Llano is 11 miles away, Fredricksburg is 30 minutes away, Enchanted Rock is 20 minutes away, but you may never want to leave this cozy, private retreat.. Please see our website, riodelooney for additional pictures

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Rio De Looney. The house is very well appointed, the beds are comfy, and the kitchen has plenty of cups/plates/pots/pans. Despite the warm September temperatures, we enjoyed a fire in the fire pit while watching the full moon come up over the Llano River. The smoker, screened in porch, and adirondack chairs under the spreading oak tree by the Llano River were all wonderful amenities. We look forward to coming back for many more visits.
Stayed at Rio De Looney this past weekend with two other couples -- the house has three bedrooms, two baths - all were well furnished and clean. The house is very neat and clean -- all appliances were great and the house was well stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, linens, etc. The BBQ and smoker outside was very nice as well. The screened porch was great and just outside was a great fire pit and horse-shoes for a friendly game.
River front was the gem of the whole deal though -- wonderful swing on a tree overlooking several pools of the Llano River and the pink granite rocks -- we never had to leave the property. It was awesome. We did however venture into Llano and while the ladies shopped, the guys enjoyed Joe's Bar and Grill and we all had a little Cooper's BBQ -- then made it up river to the Castell General Store and the bridge crossing there - all in all a wonderful getaway that I would drive a long way to enjoy -- but did not have to in this case because we live close by in Lago Vista --
The Rio de Looney rates a strong "Do Again" rating for my family. Thanks!
This property is hill country perfection. We took a family trip to Rio De Looney in early April. The house is wonderful, with plenty of room, a well-appointed kitchen, and everything you need for a comfortable vacation. We enjoyed the large screened-in porch, which is a great place to relax and sip coffee in the morning while listening to the sounds of nature. It also was a good location for several friendly ping pong tournaments! The kiddos and adults both enjoyed exploring the property, and the wildflowers were in full bloom. Lots of beautiful bluebonnets and indian paintbrushes dotted the front meadow, and that gave us a nice backdrop for some great pictures of our family. We challenged each other in horse-shoes while the smell of apple wood and mesquite smoke teased us all afternoon, working its magic on the racks of ribs in the smoker. The Llano river is very close to the house, and the hang-out area next to the river is beautiful. Although the nights were chilly, the days were warm enough to tempt us into the cold river water, and we spent hours swimming, fishing, and exploring the nice rock formations out in the middle of the river. The scenery is exquisite, and we felt as if we had a unique state park all to ourselves. At night, we would crack open a cold beer and crowd around the fire pit as the 360 degree view of the Texas sky unveiled an unrivaled display of stars. As a shooting star whizzed by, I wished for a property like this of my own. If you are planning a trip to the Llano area, this property will definitely not disappoint. The entire trip was a complete five star experience, as were my interactions with Karen, who made everything very easy and convenient. We all hope to return to this little slice of heaven on the banks of the Llano, where the spring nights are cool, the river water is cooler, and the beer is ice cold!
The house is a lovely home on the Llano. It is a great place for a weekend getaway! The river is right behind the house and is beautiful. The home is very well appointed and comfortable. On our next trip south to the Llano this will definitely be the place we stay. Thanks for sharing your place with us!
Truly loved your house and especially the setting near the river. Weather forecast was a nasty 3 day weekend....so we did go prepared to hibernate for 3 days, however Friday was absolutely beautiful and we had the opportunity to spend the afternoon and evening river side relaxing, exploring, rock hunting etc.
The home had everything we needed, well supplied, clean and well maintained...... and cozy for the next 2 days that rained.
Beautiful birds surrounded the screened porch. Was hoping to spot a few deer.
We shopped in Fredericksburg Friday morning and was at the cabin/house in no time.
We are definitely looking forward to when we can return.
Thanks for helping us have a very relaxing, rechargeable weekend.
What a great place to relax and unwind. We had Fall Break(although the summer temps were still around) here for our family. Cooked out and watched the sunset. Great little spot and centrally located for the Hill Country drives and outings. Really enjoyed the set up and would recommend this property for sure. Will come back in the Fall when it cools down.
