About the property

Large Family Home on the Frio River 3 BR/2 BA

The Riverhouse on Shut-In Creek is the perfect place for a family vacation. It is a short walk downhill to the crystal clear Frio River. With the house rental you have the right to walk down to the river and get in, to float or sit ,in the water. You can not place your chairs on the bank. You can sit them in the water. If you can manage to keep your things off the bank this might be perfect place for you. In the evening you can sit on the porch or balcony and enjoy a beautiful hill country sunset. As the sun sets the miniature golf course across the street lights up and beckons the amateur golfers young and old. More experienced golfers might enjoy the new 18 hole professional golf course. The house also has satellite TV, DVD and VCR players. So, if you choose, you can watch the latest flick or an old favorite.


The house is well suited for large groups and will sleep 13. It has three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. In the livingroom there is a sofa and a twin bed. The first bedroom has a full size bed. The middle bedroom has 2 full size beds and 2 twin beds. The third bedroom has a trundle with two twins. You will need to bring your own sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The house has a full kitchen with a dishwasher. The dining room has two tables sitting 6 and 6. There is also a washer and dryer. A balcony surrounds the back of the house overhanging a dry creek. Covered patio dining can be enjoyed just outside the front door with a step down to an open air deck. The livingroom has satellite TV, a VCR, a DVD player, and a large rock fireplace.

Activities & Area: There is covered parking for two cars. Two additional cars can be parked behind those. Tubing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, and golfing are all just a short walk out the door.

A wealth of activities are yours to explore including swimming, kayaking, tubing, hiking, bird watching, bat viewing, horseback riding, hay rides, and dancing under the stars.

The Riverhouse on Shut-In Creek is about 90 miles west of San Antonio in Concan, Texas on the beautiful Frio River. The house is accessible from River Road and is about 23 miles from Uvalde.

Amazing Location and Unique Home

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home was AMAZING - we were 1/2 a mile from the tube rental/shuttle services to float the river and right up the river from Neal's Lodge. It was a short walk to the river and the "dry creek bed" that was spoken about in previous reviews was instead breathtaking waterfalls and a small river leading into the Frio. We spent so much time hanging out here, the water was crystal clear and it was our own little hide away. The river was right down the road and was beautiful to go sit in and enjoy!

The house was an older home, but had so much character and was extremely unique. The owners were very nice to work with and made sure we had everything. One of the biggest perks of the home was all of the items that were provided, it was a fully stocked kitchen with dishes, a lot of spices, cups, etc. which was amazing to be able to utilize throughout the stay. They also have a propane and charcoal grill to cook on outside. The back porch was a perfect evening hangout and well lit so we could play card games and enjoy the Texas weather. We had 11 adults and we were extremely comfortable in the home and did not feel crowded or cramped at any point.

For the price and location of this home, it really is an amazing deal. We highly recommend to any future renters!
