Private 2 Bedroom / 2 Bath With Private River Facility

“The Cottage” At Axis Hill Farm

March 1, 2017

The Cottage at Axis Hill Farm has just been completely reconstructed from the slab up.

We endeavor to provide our guests with as much of an “at home” feel as any vacation rental can provide. It sits within a fenced yard; a patio and privacy garden so that you may enjoy the tranquility of the Hill Country well distanced from the entrance gate. There are also lots of hiking and walking places both on and off of our property, as well as private river frontage to enjoy during your stay.

We are located ¼ mile from Hunt, Texas, between Schumacher Crossing and the Hunt Crossing. Numerous summer camps are within just a few minutes of our gate, and we are in close proximity to several good restaurants. Also in close proximity are several golf courses, wineries, and museums.

The 2 bedroom / 2 bath cottage is behind gated access and sits comfortably on the side of a hill overlooking the Guadalupe River Valley below. It is nestled off to the side and slightly behind the main home in the yard area. The cottage is well equipped with each room having its own new HVAC system and new ceiling fans to provide maximum sleeping comfort. The front bedroom has a King bed and the back bedroom has 2 Twin beds with an additional day bed and pullout below. There are sleeping accommodations for up to 6. Each bedroom has its own separate bathroom including new washbasins and new tile and glass showers. Each bedroom comes with wall mounted Direct HD TVs and Wi-Fi. The kitchenette has a new fridge / freezer with icemaker, new gas cooktop, and new Breville Smart Oven. A Mr. Coffee maker is provided for your comfort and convenience. There is also a gas grill for outdoor cooking on the patio. For our guests who plan longer stays, The cottage is complete with a washing machine with a gas dryer and optional housekeeping can be arranged. Otherwise, cleaning is completed following your stay.

We own private access and deep water frontage on the Guadalupe River. There is plenty of room for access in and out of the water from our concrete and rock facility. In addition, we provide tubes for your floating pleasure and there are 2 Kayaks available. Swimming, fishing, kayaking, and floating in the tubes are but a few of the enjoyable activities that the river has to offer. Our private river facility can be accessed by vehicle or a short walk from the house and sits at a comfortable distance from the highway for your privacy.

Nice and clean living arrangements. Friendly and accommodating owner.

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very accommodating to try and meet needs. River access is a short bike ride or good walk across the main F.M. road. The house is not located on the water, nor does it have a view of the river, but the amenities at the private river access are very nice. No back porch, and closed view from front porch because the house is located behind the owners home and is surrounded by small flower beds and trees for landscaping. House consists of 4 major rooms. Would be great for a single family of up to 6 or 7. Front door opens into bedroom with separate bathroom (shower,sink,toilet). The bedroom has door that opens to a large room that makes up bedroom/living room/kitchen, with another full bathroom (shower,sink,toilet). If you want expansive views of hill country from your porch, or water front, I would not recommend this listing. If you want peaceful, clean accommodations away from the hustle of town with private access to the river then I would highly recommend this listing. If I return to the area, I would definitely consider staying here again.

Nice lodging wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The property is on top of a hill on a ranch, with great views and very quiet. The rooms are clean, and functional. The host was very thoughtful and readily available. We had everything we needed. They even had a bottle of champagne in the fridge for us, knowing we were there for our anniversary. Bike riding on the country road was amazing, scenic, very little traffic, hilly, gave us a great workout. And it was very relaxing to swim and kayak in the river. They have kayaks right by the river for us to use, they are in great condition.

3 day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We, two adults and two teenage children, stayed for 3 nights. The accommodations are very nice and the cottage is roomy. We were very comfortable. The river front part of the property is very nice as well. The water was deep which made it easy to jump in and swim or kayak. I also felt it was on a quiet part of the river. The only neighbors are across the river and they are large upscale properties.

The owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with on all the details. We'll be back.
