About the Property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom cottage on the river

River Song – It's the Hunt church bells, the river bouncing over a rock dam, and the song of the migratory birds that the Texas hill country is known for. This vacation rental is ideally located off of the highway and on the river just upstream from the confluence of the north and south forks of the Guadalupe river. Enjoy the private river front, which has a concrete dock that provides easy access into the river for swimming, floating, or launching a canoe, kayak, or fishing boat. Half of the 100 yard river front is a shallow stretch of easy rapids that are an easy kayak float to the south fork, and is just the spot for lawn chairs and swimming with toddlers. This four acre property has a front yard perfectly suited for family baseball games, star gazing, and wildlife viewing. The outdoor pavilion is a wonderful place to gather for a bar-b-que, story-telling and visiting.
This charming cedar and river rock Hill Country 4 bedroom/3 bath cottage will comfortably sleep 8 people. The combined living-dining room has a rock fireplace for those cool evenings and a wall of windows to enjoy your river view. The floors are Saltillo tile in the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The spacious kitchen has good storage and is stocked with dishes, pots and pans, utensils, linens and small appliances for your convenience. Downstairs has a large Master bedroom and a bath with a shower and a guest bedroom with a shower. Upstairs includes two guest rooms that share a bath with a tub/shower, and a loft overlooking the living and dining room. All linens and towels are included.
Conveniently located in Hunt, Texas fifteen miles west of Kerrville. Nearby restaurants include the famous (Hunt Rock Cafe) at The Hunt Store, Elaine's Table, and Rio Rancho.
Lost Maples State Park is approximately 30-40 minutes away, a 20-minute drive into Kerrville, 45 minutes to Fredericksburg, and just over an hour to San Antonio. This is an ideal place to stay if your child is enjoying one of the many summer camps in our area. Now taking “CAMP RESERVATIONS.” Make your reservation now for your perfect Hill Country vacation.

People seeking a simple, outdoor life that depicts the friendly, western spirit of Texas have been coming to Hunt, TX for generations. Texans and others vacation here to enjoy the beauty of the clear, green Guadalupe River and the activities it provides. We are home to campers, artists, and musicians. In the summer, we kayak and tube the river, meet friends for lunch at the Taco Stand or the Hunt Store and go dancing on Friday nights after the rodeo at the outdoor dance hall, Criders. In the winter, we hunt white tail and axis deer, hike the trails and gather around the fireplace with friends. Nearby, Ingram and Kerrville offer art galleries, museums, and live theater. Forty-five minutes will get you to Fredericksburg, Boerne or Comfort for more quaint shopping and antiquing. Other day trips are Enchanted Rock, Willow Loop Wild Flower Trail, Winery Tours, Lost Maples State Park, bat caves, and Bandera, Music and art festivals are regular events in the Hill Country.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: My sister and I are very happy to share our family vacation home with others. River Song has been our family meeting place since the seventies, and even our children who live out of state plan their vacations around times to gather in the Texas Hill Country. Many of their friends have come along and now claim River Song as their “home away from home.” We invite you to start your own family tradition at River Song!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of this property is ideal. We are not on the major highway like so many others, yet we are on the river. Neighbors are just near enough so that there is not a feeling of isolation. Everyone enjoys the charm of the house and the beautiful scenery.
