About Tim & Trina Word
Long time residents. Tim's Grandparents raised cattle, sheep, and goats in the area and his Great-Grandfather was the postmaster in nearby Vanderpool. We live just outside Bandera and feel fortunate to have raised our children in the beautiful Hill Country. We love the Texas Hill Country and feel Bandera has some of the friendliest people anywhere. Our children are grown allowing us the time (and energy) to open our vacation home to guests.
Tim & Trina Word purchased this House in 2000
Why Tim & Trina Word chose Bandera
We chose this home due to its prime downtown location, historical charm, big front porch, and large lot. One of the original homes in Bandera (c 1881), it is ideally located for walking the city. Purchased in 2000 we have spent the last 18 years (and counting ! ) renovating this home and feel privileged to be a part of its restoration. After numerous requests we have decided to open the home so guests may enjoy it also.
What makes this House unique
Ideally located for walking the city yet on a quieter side street with plenty of parking. The large front porch is equipped with four rocking chairs just waiting for you to rock your cares away. Larger parties can rent both the Main House & the Guest Apartment. Multiple live music venues close by. Favorite activities within 2 blocks of the cottage include: Bandera's historic Main Street, 11th Street Cowboy Bar (live bands/dancing/Wednesday Steak Night), numerous shops & honky tonks, Bandera's recently restored courthouse, the Medina River (century old cypress trees, picnic areas, walking trails, tubing & kayaking) and more. The river is also a favorite of Whitetail deer and songbirds. Some mornings/evenings you may even see a family of deer grazing/resting in the yard of the cottage!

Charming Cottage just blocks from downtown!
Everything about this cottage was great!!! There was not an amenity forgotten! The beds have the most comfortable pillow tops we’ve ever slept on. We never needed to contact the owners, because they thought everything through! Our only regret was not staying a bit longer!!! Thanks for such a positive experience! We would highly recommend staying here!
