Overview

About the property

Welcome to Dos Aguilas (Two Eagles) Cabin situated right on the Medina River -- Spend a peaceful weekend or extended stay on 10 acres in the Texas Hill Country. Watch the sun go down among the cypress trees on the back porch, spot frequent visits by family of wild turkeys and deer, follow herons and other bird life living along the river. Just a few blocks away, Medina offers a hardware store, coffee shop, post office, a couple of restaurants, and a country store with gas pumps. Bandera is approximately 15 miles away and holds frequent weekend events, including cowboy parades, rodeos, and art fairs. You'll also find restaurants, bars, a grocery store, pharmacies, and plenty of other amenities and sights in Bandera. Approximately 13 miles in the opposite direction is Quiet Valley Ranch, home of the Kerrville Folk Festival. Further up the road, approximately 27 miles from the Medina cabin, is the town of Kerrville.

The cabin currently has a furnished loft bedroom with a full size bed (accessible only by ladder) and a half bath, and a twin day bed with twin trundle in the living area with a full bath. Accessibility to house also requires ability to climb a full set of stairs.

Peaceful river experience

  • 5 of 5

Nice place with lots of privacy and good river access. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom are tricky.

Downstairs is great.

Quiet getaway on the river

  • 5 of 5

The title of property said it all. The river and quiet acreage make this cabin worth the rental. The river averaged 1-3ft but was flowing nicely. Not really floatable but great to relax in a chair with a cold beer. Did a little fishing and caught a few small bass and perch. Grilled steaks in evening, breeze on the deck even in summer was nice. As stated in description this cabin is not for the mobility challenged. The stairs up to cabin and bedroom can be difficult for some. Being able to use owners phone if needed and wifi was a big perk as Verizon was a little sketchy at times. Would stay here again.

Dos Aguilas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house Aug. 11th-14th 2017. Nice house, very comfortable and clean. We met one of the cleaning staff as we got there and she was so very sweet and accomadating. The only thing I would suggest is to add another skillet for the kitchen and tongs for use with the grill ! The only thing that would have made the stay better is if the water had been deeper behind the house. But we had a good relaxing weekend ! Thank you Terri and staff.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. The things that disappear is a never ending endeavor. We appreciate guests who treat the cabin as you would your own. I've noted a missing flashlight this month and will add a skillet and grill tongs back to our inventory! We have added saucepans too. Come again Terri

Relaxing getaway and picturesque river

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away from the city. Quiet, beautiful and plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors, and quick access to the Medina River (less than 100 meters from the back door!). House has everything you need, and the owner is wonderful to work with. Would definitely go back!

Peaceful, private, fun

  • 5 of 5

Love the peacefulness of the area. Got to see deers and other wildlife in the area. Loved that the grass was cut around the perimeter of the cabin which gave easy access to the deck on the river. Water temperature was just right. Even though the water was about 2 ft high, one can just place their folding chair on the middle of the river and have a couple of cold ones while enjoying nature. If you head down the river about a two minute walk, it gets deeper and one can use floats or swim if you prefer. One can also fish for bass or catfish on deeper areas. The water is clear so it's nice to know where you are stepping. The cabin was very clean on our arrival. Has plenty of space to walk around and also plenty of sleeping space on the first floor. To get to the second floor where there are two extra rooms, one has a bed, can be a bit scary going up the ladder. Having said this I still enjoyed it because it reminded me when I was a kid climbing the ladder of my bunk bed. So if you have kids they will enjoy it but if you are someone tall like me who likes to drink a few cold ones, then I recommend sleeping on the first floor lol. The WIFI is a big plus and helps for phone that lose reception. The Kitchen had everything we needed and there is lots of space in the fridge so I recommend stacking up on food and drinks if you plan to stay more than two nights. Another big plus is that Terri is not too strict with the house rules. So treat the cabin like if it was yours and keep it clean. The cabin is in the middle of Bandera and Kerville which is just a 20 minute drive to either city. Fredericksburg is only a 45 minute drive so that's a big plus if you plan to get some delicious wine. Most of all, Terri replies quick to any concerns or questions you might have.

Terrie you have a beautiful place.
