Come and enjoy the summer season at a relaxing and exciting summer home! This home offers all the peace and relaxation you need, as well as exciting adventures you have been dreaming of.
Imagine the sunset at about exactly 7:03pm, you are laying down on an oak hammock under the covered patio, listening to the river run its course, the wind caressing your face and the smell of sweet BBQ barely passing thru. Our home caters to all your senses.
The Pavilion is 1800 square feet cover patio with its main view to the serene river and abundant forest on the hills. You can BBQ or cook out on the gas grill while your family and friends enjoy watching a movie on DVD with a projector sitting on the outdoor sofa or enjoying a game of pool. After dinner is cooked, you can sit down on the 10 sitting picnic table and enjoy a good meal. Once your belly’s full, why not walk down to one of the two sunken patios recessed in the rock by the water’s edge and relax under the stars or if you prefer, choose the other sunken patio with a bench. If it’s late at night, you may catch a shooting star and your wishes may come true. Both sunken patios have stairs leading to the river’s edge.
The next day, once you are rested and relaxed, you can start your day by kayaking the Medina River. You start your course at English crossing, which it’s 3 miles up the road, while breathing pure oxygen released from the oak trees along the river, you may encounter a school of fish along with a new mom turtle and it’s baby turtle, sometimes the deer will appear and you might feel that you are at a scene from the movie “Funny Farm'. After kayaking the 2 mile trip, it will lead you right in front of the “The Butterfly” and “Lady Bug” lair.
If you are not ready to leave the water, you can stay sitting on the water in front of your relaxing home, call the kids and have a competition on who can find the prettiest stones under water or you might want to go grab your fishing pole and continue enjoying Mother Nature.
You can be sure that your safety and privacy will always be maintained by the beautiful cedar fence that surrounds the home.
If you are ready to join civilization, Bandera is only 20 minutes away. Don’t be fooled by the size of this small town. Set in the hill country, Bandera County, known as the Cowboy Capital of the World offers all the amenities you need including, museums, horseback riding, scenic drives and much much more! For further information about Bandera County, please visit www.banderacowboycapital or if you are in the mood for a metropolis, San Antonio is only 25 minutes away; you can go to Fiesta Texas, La Cantera outdoor mall or enjoy good eating
Accommodations are as relaxing and exciting as the outdoors. The “Butterfly Home” can accommodate 16 guests. It has a master bedroom with a king size bed, walk-in closet and shower/large tub master bathroom. Room 2 has a queen size bed, 5 drawer dresser and closet. Room 3 also offers a queen size bed and closet; room 4 offers two sets of bunk bed (full on the bottom, twin on top) and the living room has 2 queen size sofa beds and a TV. The dining area accommodates 8 guests and the heart of the house which is the kitchen has an electric stove, stainless steel refrigerator, stainless steel microwave. So you may make the best of your vacation, we offer one washer and two dryers for your convenience. The “Lady Bug” cabin accommodates 4 guests. It has one queen size bed and a set of bunk beds. Again, don’t be fooled by the “Lady Bug”, it also has a bathroom with a stand up shower, kitchen and dining room.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Great Lake Cabin Experience!
Neal and Elizabeth could not have been more cordial and accommodating, they are great to work with and have done a great job in setting up the cabin and facilities. Far away, but close enough to Bandera and Boerne for some fun shopping and good eats, would like to do this again in the summer time.
Beautiful property! Our family had a wonderful time. We would definitely come back again.
We Thank you guys for choosing our place to make your family memories.
Great property and would love to stay again!
Everything was awesome and the whole family had a great time. The owners are quick to respond to any questions and the property is super nice!
Thank you so much. Glad you had a great time. Hope the river is up next time you come out so you can enjoy the waterslide.
Fantastic for family fun!
Dealing with Neal is easy! The property has so much to offer -- something for everyone. The house could use a few little improvements, including better patio furniture in the pavilion. Just bring your folding chairs and you're all set there. But, I challenge you to find something better for a family than this awesome setup. We had our second annual Texas cousin reunion here, and everyone loved it again. A gazillion fun things to do for every age and every personality. The water was too low to use the water slide, but I think we made use of every other single thing there! Thanks to the Hill family for a great escape on the water!
Thank you guys for coming back again. Love hearing people having fun at our home. Every year we reinvested to make our place even better. My wife's next project for this off season was to fence the right side back yard to allow kids bit more freedom with less worry of them making it to the lake and she wants to revamp the patio possible stairs out the right side to get to doll house quicker and new furniture. We normally accomplish our wish list and will post new pics of everything later in the year online. The Hill Family
Great place for large group. Would like to go back when lake is full.
Absolutely beautiful location!
We had a great time! Spent most of our time in the lake and on the awesome covered pavilion! I can't even decide what our favorite part was - relaxing in the lake, enjoying the family on the pavilion and playing pool/ping pong, playing with my granddaughter in the air-conditioned playhouse or just sitting on the pavilion overlooking the lake! Relaxation and recharging was perfect for the whole family!!
We wanted to thank you again for choosing our Lake house to spend your vacation with your loved ones. And for taking great care of our place and treating it like it was your own. We love hearing that people are enjoying as much as we do and that keeps ups reinvesting and adding more and more new fun things to do. Thanks
