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!

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.

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.

Happy Holidays!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a great place to stay. Our youngest son was getting married at a venue near by and so it was convenient and very relaxing. Having the house decorated for the holidays and the music playing throughout the house was so warm and inviting. We all agreed that we have never seen a Christmas tree so perfectly decorated. I am thinking that could be a side business for Brenda and Glenn. My only regret was I never had enough time to sit by the tree at night and listen to the music. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Merry Christmas and have a blessed New Year!

Exquisite

  • 5 of 5

This place was like a palace according to my 7 year old and I would have to agree. It was spacious enough for all of our guests yet it still felt cozy. It Was very nicely decorated and the hill country views were breathtaking. The owners stay on the property so any issues that we had were promptly addressed. The only negative experience was leaving this gorgeous property behind to go back to reality.

very comforable

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay for 3 days with our large family. We had plenty of room to have family time as well as quiet time. The home is kid friendly and is wheelchair accessible. We will come back again soon.

Lots of space and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This place is quite large with plenty of space for all. A plethora of places to sit and relax with a fully stocked kitchen. Added bonus: built in music throughout the house and a home theater room. ;-)
