About Robert Barrow

We purchased this property in 1994 as a place to use for friends and family. We have shared our house with many since 1994 and hope to keep doing so for years to come.

Robert Barrow purchased this house in 1994

Why Robert Barrow chose Hill Country

We purchased this house because it was right on the water and in the Texas Hill Country. We had visited the area several times and just happened to luck out finding the house for sale. The house is priced very competitively to similar properties making a great choice for accommodating 2 to 6 people.

What makes this house unique

The house is centrally located on the upper part of the river. This provides our quests with options for venturing out to other local establishments or attractions. The house sits in a quiet neighborhood about 4 miles from Canyon Lake. The river in this section runs deep and slow. This allows for swimming or just hanging out in a tube tied to our deck or one of the many cypress trees roots. The house is located about 5 minute walking distance from a river outfitter and makes it very easy to rent tubes or rafts without having to drive. We strive to keep a well maintained and clean house for our quests to enjoy.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Escape is a great place for a vacation. The house is very well maintained.To be able to walk out onto the deck ,sit down and enjoy the amazing view of the Guadalupe River is beyond words. The owner Robert, is always able to be reached for any questions or concerns that arise.He wants to make your stay as pleasant as possible. I would highly recommend this house for any one that wants a "Home away from Home" Thanks Robert for making our stay so incredibly enjoyable.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Escape was that indeed. Everything that was stated in the listing was true to form.

The property was well maintained and clean as well. Someone came by Saturday to mow the lawn while we were there but that didn't bother us at all. We were on the river drinking beers.

Communication with the owner, Robert, was very prompt and he was always available to answer or help with the few questions I had. He even let us check in 2 hours earlier than previously discussed so that was nice.

I would definitely recommend this for a small group or 3 couples looking to get away for the weekend, and I will definitely consider it again when I return.

The location is great and somewhat central to activities. It's not far from a great music venues such as River Road Icehouse, Whitewater Amphitheater, and Gruene Hall so if youre into that then I suggest this place. Also the riverfront view is very nice and provides great sunset/sunrise views.

Something for All

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (Husband and 2 sons 8 & 17) and the in-laws (60 & 92). So all ages.

We all loved the home and it was neat, clean, comfortable and very welcoming. We were very happy with the proximity to the river so much so we just tied off our tubes and literally just relaxed in the river.

We had a load of laughs at the goose and his friends demanding food from tubers passing through, which were few and far between.

When we got tired of being in the water my son and I had a blast making fishing poles out of sticks and fishing line we even caught a few fish.

Great memories made! Thanks to Robert for everything. Great neighbors also, he offered my father in law a rocker and loaned me some coffee filters.

So peaceful and we all loved seeing the deer running freely.

The grocery store Lowes was close and had everything we needed.

A great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the river and is very nice. Covered porch or dock on river is great place to hang out. Lots of shade in back yard. Everything in house worked fine. Ac was especially nice in july. Very cozy home. Ponderosa river outfitters within walking distance for tubing is very convenient. Will definitely be back. Owners are very accommodating.
