Property description

The properties are available for rent separately or in combination. Please check out our website ( or VRBO listing #722364 for more information.
Kayak, fly fish, or relax in a chair in the shade with a good book and watch the river go by. Perfect place for family vacations, girls weekend or couples getaway. We are close enough to Llano, Mason and Fredericksburg to shop to your hearts content and enjoy great restaurants but far enough away to escape from the hustle and bustle of crowded tourist areas.
The Buchholz House boasts a full kitchen with new appliances. A washer and dryer are provided for your convenience. There are two bedrooms located on the main floor (king bed, queen bed) and an enclosed loft with 5 twin beds perfect for the younger set. The large backyard has a hammock and firepit for guest use. The yard slopes gently down to your private access to the crystal clear Llano River. We are pet friendly!
Castell is a small, historic community on the banks of the Llano River. The General Store is famous for its hamburgers, BBQ and friendly atmosphere. There is often live music on Saturday nights.
