About Brenda Reinemund

My husband and I built this custom home 5 years ago named it the 'Rhino Ranch'. I work for an airline company and love to travel. I have been to almost every country in the world. I am fortunate to be able to work for an airline and fly for free where ever I go. My favorite destination was Sydney, Australia. We lived there for 3 years. My daughter was born in England as we also lived there for 4 years. I am from San Antonio, Texas and moved back home to be closer to family. My husband Glenn is retired and loves to work around the house and the yard. Our hobbies are collecting movies, reading good books, tennis (John Newcomb Ranch and T Bar M are only 10 minutes away), traveling, entertaining, cooking and hosting. Golfing is minutes away.

We would love to have you stay with us and have the vacation of a lifetime!

Brenda Reinemund purchased this house in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Scenic Hill Country Retreat exceeded all expectations for a holiday getaway. The spectacular views, the upscale hill country ambiance, the well organized and spacious kitchen/breakfast area and the outdoor fireplace made for one of our most memorable Christmas holidays-so nice to meet at a new setting instead of Houston or Dallas. The gorgeous Christmas lights,tasteful decorations around the house and the beautifully decorated Christmas tree made this a very special holiday weekend.

Beautiful Home Overlooking The Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were attending a wedding at The Springs and this house was in very close proximity to the venue. This house was large enough to accommodate our entire family with large living spaces and patios that made for great areas to visit and relax.

Beautiful home and surrounding countryside.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing home with a great floor plan and really great decorations from all over the world. The open design made for a very great meeting point for our families. The theatre room was spectacular and the movie choices were unlimited. Hope we can use for another meeting point in the future.

Spring Break was enjoyed

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to this place for about 3 years. It is beautiful and clean.

My granddaughters enjoy it very much.

Very relaxing and not far from places to eat or see.

Fabulous home. Loved the openness of the space and the back patios!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable space for the seven adults and two kids in our group. Open floor plan and great large windows. The sliding doors opening to the back patio were awesome. We had warm temps in January 2017, so the doors were opened and the screen doors were used. Beautiful home! We hope to back in the future.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved Rhino Ranch. Although it was our small family, there was room for many more. The home was beautifully decorated and even had a Christmas tree and lights out front. The house appeared to be a builder's home with all of the computerized lighting and controls. We enjoyed the country view out back. Our son captured some nice sunsets with his camera. The media room was a big hit for us. The movie collection was so vast that we never finished perusing it. The owners were very helpful when we had a question about the projector. We didn't cook meals, but the kitchen was well stocked. We would love to stay again. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home.
