About the property

Very large Rustic Retreat (4200 sq ft)

The Barndominium is the ultimate vacation rental! It's great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups. It's a very large, rustic/industrial home is great for multifamily use and built for entertaining. It's a very private mini-resort. All the bedrooms are completely separate from one another (no adjacent walls). In fact, the wing with the stairs/loft and bunks are totally separate and can be closed off from the rest of the house (great for a kids wing). With a huge kitchen, island and bar, you have tons of seating. It has 6 TV's, so everyone can relax and watch their own shows. The back porch is great for entertaining both adults and kids. Relax and enjoy the deer coming to feed at the deer feeder, play sand volley ball on the regulation size court, play table tennis, horseshoes, washer games or just relax on the porch swing and watch the sunset. You will have access to 2 acres (fenced) of land where the house is located. This is surrounded by a serene 50 acres (not to be accessed by our guests) of land which makes it very peaceful and private.

It's a nice place for family reunions, retreats, weddings, etc. This 4,100+ sf home is set back off the road in a secluded 2 acre lot surrounded by trees and wildlife. It feels like your miles away in the hill country, but only 1.2 miles from I-35 where there are lots of great restaurants, and attractions. It's only 1.5 miles from the Guadalupe River, 1 mile from Lake Dunlap and 4 miles from Gruene. It can sleep up to 22 people in beds. Nightly rate includes up to 8 guests. There is a $25 per person fee for additional guests up to 22. We also have venue pricing available for larger functions including weddings.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our large group. The kids really enjoyed the kids wing, and the space in the kitchen was a perfect fit for our needs. The volleyball court and outside place to run and play made for a nice getaway with friends. The owners were very prompt in responding to questions and needs. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful property & relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I were pleasantly surprised with The Barndominium! We had a wonderful time & it was so nice that the kids had their own “quarters” to retreat to! Jule & Raquel have a real gem on their hands! The back porch was by far our favorite hangout spot - plenty of seating for the whole crew!

We enjoyed our visit. Our family does a lot of cooking and the kitchen area was large and very accommodating. Sand volleyball court was enjoyed by our grandchildren.

This Place was more than anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

It was super easy to correspond with the owners, first off! The pictures do no justice to how amazing this place truly is...clean, big, convenient! The big lot this house sits on, made for great privacy. Don’t forget about the amenities...Beach Volleyball, Horseshoes, Washers, Outdoor TV, Firepit, Outdoor Shower, and so much more! Jule and Raquel were superb hosts, and welcomed us like family! Our big group has decided to make this trip an annual one, and we will definitely be back to The Barndominium!
