About the property

2 bedroom 2 bath, large covered rear deck, sleeps 8, full kitchen, double oven,

River Bend Cottage is located on over a 1/2 acre with 100' of waterfront. It is on the upper Colorado River arm of Lake LBJ and is nestled under towering pecan trees providing abundant shade. This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom property (sleeps 8) with a full kitchen including a double oven and a laundry room with washer and dryer. It also has Dish Network, flat screen TV and wifi. The river makes a graceful bend around the property creating lake views from both sides of the cottage as well as the back. There is a boat ramp within 100 yards of the back porch. River Bend Cottage is conveniently located about a mile away from Perrisso's Vineyard (wine tasting on weekends) and less than 5 miles from Longhorn Caverns, a Texas Hill County wonder created thousands of years ago.

What makes this house unique

There are many reasons to rent this property. The towering pecans providing shade, the huge covered back porch, the boat dock, the boat ramp within view, the way the river bends around the property creating a true panoramic view. These are just a few of many unique benefits I could list.

Great place for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This home was great. The kitchen was very well stocked, the whole house was really. Our whole family enjoyed this so much, and Scott was very nice and was only a text away. We rented his boat and my son caught some fish! Also, every evening ducks came up and my little boys loved feeding them. Great vacay!

Great home with beautiful lakefront view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this home. The property has a great deck and felt very private - on a nice large lot. We would stay here again. Home has a nice open feel. Great view of water.

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so lovely, relaxing. The minute you walk in the door you feel as if your are at home. The home has everything you need for your stay. Whether you cook inside or want to use the grill. We stayed here in 2015, 2016 for our family reunion and will stay again in 2016. The back porch is so relaxing to sit and visit. We stayed up visiting till 4 a.m. The first night catching up with each other. Scott is very quick to respond and one of the nicest people. I feel as if he is a longtime friend. He does whatever needs to be done to make sure your stay is very enjoyable. Thank you, Scott for sharing your home!

We will be back in 2017!

Great Home for Families - Good Swimming Area

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed this spacious 2-bedroom home. You can comfortably sleep 6 adults in beds, not counting the two couches. Dock lift is nice for your boat. Water is clean for swimming off the shore (not like some channel homes on LBJ that are filled with algae and slime). The owner was very helpful, responsive, and even repaired a couple things we broke without any charges. The home was very clean. Location is good for water sports as you are very near the Inks Dam - great for morning or later evening ski runs on the glassy river. Boat ramp is right next door, which is rare for LBJ homes. Will definitely consider renting this home next summer.

Perfect weekend getaway on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our recent stay at this lovely property on the lake . The house was absolutely perfect for our family (Family of 5) - the house is in a gorgeous setting, right on the water with large shady pecan trees in the back, well maintained yard ( our 2 dogs loved it) . The house is very clean, very well stocked with everything you might need for a weekend away. I cooked several times in the kitchen and everything was very accessible . The owner was great and met us initially to show us around , we also hired his pontoon boat for the weekend which made for a wonderful 2 days on the lake. Thank you Scott for sharing your home with us !- I would definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting a relaxing weekend with no hassles in a comfortable and well maintained property. I would rent this again in a heartbeat .
