About The Owner

This house has been in my family since it was built and I have just restored and updated it with modern amenities. This was our vacation house and I have spent many happy days here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying at your house over the weekend. We really had everything we needed, right down to the spices to add something special to our meals. We enjoyed wine on the patio along with our dinners, and watched deer grazing. This was also a perfect place for bringing our telescope to look at the stars and moon. Besides the charm of this place, your great suggestions for things to do in the area, the 78's and record player made our weekend! (Listening to Dinah Washington as I'm writing this) Thanks for everything and we would recommend this to friend and family. We hope to come back again!

Really Great

  • 5 of 5

Super big spread for our family of three. In the woods for a little privacy yet minutes from downtown Bandera. Furnishings are great and comfortable with two nice bathrooms and two nice bedrooms.

Charming ranch house close to downtown Bandera

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our weekend getaway to the TX hill country. With 2 bedrooms and two baths plus a full size living room and kitchen, it can easily sleep 6 people comfortably. The house was very clean and decorated in rustic country charm. It also came equipped with AC, wifi, and Cable TV which was a plus! We were visiting for a family reunion in Medina, and Bandera was the closest town just a 15 min drive away. We are so glad we found this place. I highly recommend it!

Great weekend with only a minor issue

  • 4 of 5

Max is a great host and the property is cowboy rustic. Not a hotel experience. Fireplace, cookout, fully equipped kitchen, TVs, stereo, porch, swing, wildlife, close to town. One thing---make sure plumbing is repaired and guaranteed before you book. TO BE FAIR...this was a bad issue for two of 3 days.

A unique house

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the place makes you feel like you've been transported to the late 60's early 70's with a mixture of folk memorabilia of an authentic Texas family style tradition. Wonderful wildlife experiences! We saw at least 2 different kinds of deer and not just 1 or 2. We saw a herd of about 30-40 deer on the property everyday. We saw black squirrels (which are much more timid than the tan ones). We saw magnificent wild turkeys. The house layout is one that will cause discussion. Everything has been updated fairly recently so you will not be disappointed in the amenities. The only thing that was missing was a WIFI connection, but I was assured by the owner that would be remedied in short order as soon as things get in place in Bandera. You can get 4G out there and use your phone as a hotspot though. All in all it was a great choice for my wife and I to get away for 4 nights!
