  • Relaxing in the country

    "My group of 7 really enjoyed staying here. The house offered plenty of space and the basement is a really nice hangout spot. The best part for us was the grotto/hot tub/swimming hole area. The website plays up the grotto and hot tub, but we all thought the swimming hole and the hiking immediately around that area was the best attraction. The water is pretty clean and there are a couple of places to jump off the rocks into the water (with caution of course). Beyond that, the property has some great hiking opportunities and the winery on site (probably not close enough to walk to) has a great roof top seating area providing wonderful views of the countryside. The location is also a short drive to Texas Hills Vineyard in Johnson City or Real Ale Brewery in Blanco. Both are worth checking out. The only downside is the house is still somewhat close to the highway. Though it does set back a bit and feels secluded, you can still hear the sounds of passing trucks. Also, one suggestion I would offer to the owners is, it would be great if y'all could provide some firewood. We were not capable of bringing any with us and it would have been nice to have some there for use in the fire pit."

  • Simply the BEST in class!!

    "5 Star accommodation and first class experience from the facility itself to the outstanding hospitality of the owner. We have stayed at several rentals throughout Horseshoe Bay and highly recommend you give this one a try! It was nice to be slightly off main resort and water to also enjoy the outdoors and wildlife. We will be back!"

  • Getaway

    "Rented this location for a weekend with the grandkids. Enjoyed the stay and the peacefulness. Felt very secure and comfortable. The history behind this home and the ranch was surprising and fun to discover . I highly recommend this rental. We rented the downstairs as well as the upstairs and it was nice to have a separate place to prepare meals. The outdoor areas were very relaxing."

  • Wonderful retreat

    "Our family had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving week at the River View Guest house. Stepping into the house is like stepping back in time. (But with modern climate control). The multiple living areas made it very comfortable for a large group even with cold rainy weather. My grandson appreciated the modern TV to hook his game system to and the adults liked that it wasn't in the main room. The well stocked game closet came in handy. I have rented many properties on VRBO.COM and this was by far the best stocked. The kitchen has everything we needed to prepare and serve Thanksgiving dinner. Having basic groceries (flour, sugar, oil, coffee, spices) was really helpful. There is lots of seating and almost every seat has a quilt or throw to cover-up as needed-very cozy. The linen closet is abundant with plenty of towels, bedding and pillows. Blanco is a charming little town to explore and it is a good base for day trips. We enjoyed stepping out the back gate and into the State Park. The grandkids are excited to return when the water will be warm enough to get in. This trip we settled for hiking and watching the ducks."
