Overview

About the property

3200 sq ft split level home, on quiet cul-de-sac. 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths,

Relax with friends and family around the pool, view deer grazing in the front yard just out the window, or gather around the fireplace. These are just a few of the many activities the Hideaway on Hidden Hollow offers. Located off the beaten path on a hillside just over a mile from the Guadalupe in Kerrville, Texas, just an hour from San Antonio, this roomy home is the perfect jumping off point for any Hill Country adventure.

This spacious 5 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath retreat sleeps 16 and has plenty of extras. The large living room with floor to ceiling fireplace is a great place to relax with companions. The expansive deck provides a great platform for grilling and enjoying the Texas Hill Country's moderate weather. The sequestered game room with a foosball table as well as a '7 foot Pockie' table that flips from pool on one side to air hockey on the other allows for hours of entertainment, and is separated from the sleeping areas to allow nappers and early sleepers to rest unbothered. The large kitchen is fully equipped, has a 15 foot island with 6 stools so visiting and food prep go hand in hand. There are laundry facilities onsite.

About 1/2 hour travel takes you to Bandera-cowboy capital of Texas, or Fredericksburg-German tourist town. Float the clear Frio river just over an hour away. Young people love to slide down the Ingram dam, 15 min. away. Kerrville itself offers many musical/theatrical productions throughout the year.

We are in the Hill Country of Texas, close to so many activities!

Kerrville hosts a multitude of artist's showrooms, the Country Western Art Museum being the largest. During the summer there is a Concert in the Park series, and the Cailloux Theatre, Playhouse 2000 and the Point Theatre always have live shows. There are activities at the Public Library for the children.

Restaurants in town vary from Home Style Cooking (Billy Jean's, Save-Inn Restaurant, Y O Restaurant, Inn of the Hills) to Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Western Steakhouse, Seafood, and many sandwich, chicken, and pizza places as well.

Outdoor activities include trail rides, swimming, canoing, kayaking, river floating, and hiking. Five minutes away is Louise Hays Park, with canoing, fishing, swimming, playground areas, sand volleyball, a beautiful splash park, and the phenomenol River Trail--> 4 miles of walkway bordering the Guadalupe River for pedestrians, and bicyclists both.

HEB is our main grocery store, with Walmart also available. We have one mall with Belk, J. C. Penneys, Bealls, and more.

During the summer months, Crider's Rodeo offers family entertainment on Saturday evenings, with an outdoor dance hall. This has been a favorite for many, include our family. We have also enjoyed floating the Frio River together, about an hour away.

Of course, we have antique and thrift stores for those one-of- a kind finds.

Driving along the Guadalupe River is a treat for many, including many motorcycle clubs.

Nearby towns offer another perspective of our Hill Country. Bandera calls itself the Cowboy Capital of Texas, and you'll find Western stores and restaurants, horses being ridden in town, and their own family rodeo on weekends. They also now have a Natural History Museum complete with dinosaurs!

Our family has enjoyed many treks to float the Frio River with it's beautiful, cool water. This is about an hour away.

Fredericksburg, TX is a German Tourist Town!!! It also hosts the Admiral NImitz Pacific War Museum. I have taken my history students to this several times, and I learn more each visit. This is a first class Museum, highly ranked nation wide. During the summers they offer an outdoor reanactment, with authentic weaponry and uniforms. You'll have to check for scheduling this, but this is a great, memorable program.

Kerrville Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed here and we'll stay here again! We have a large group for these golf trips and this house is perfect! We all get our own bed and we all get to stay together. The game room, TV area and kitchen are all great for a large group. Also who doesn't love Kerrville!

A good time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Fields family, thank you for sharing your home. We all fit! With 7 adults and a baby, it's hard to find one place we can all stay. The pool, hot tub and game room were all bonuses. This house is close enough to town for convenience, but up in the hills a bit so you feel away from it all. There were a few deer in the yard and many on the way up to the house. Anytime we have to return to the area, we will check this place first!

Great Vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Although Hurricane Harvey dampened our plans of being lazy in the pool, we really enjoyed the house and area. Hosts were very nice and the accommodations were as advertised. The deer in the front yard and the entire area were a highlight of our stay.

Wonderful family mini-vacay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Hidden Hollow Hideaway. It was just what we were looking for and expecting. We are a family of 6, with 2 parents and 4 adult children. We needed 4 bedrooms and this home has five. We wanted a private pool. The pool here is large and very private. It is fully equipped with volleyball net and plenty of water toys. We wanted to cook at home and the kitchen is large and open with the living area and a large island. An added bonus was the game room with pool table/air hockey. Also there was a closet full of board games that we enjoyed. We have never seen so many deer. They come very close. We fed them corn and watermelon. Our original plan was to relax around the pool and spend time at the house, but we found a nearby park in the city of Kerrville on the Guadalupe River that was good for fishing and floating on tubes. The owners were very friendly and available for questions or problems. We highly recommend this rental house and our family would love to stay here again.
