Request to Book

This spacious riverside home on a full acre of land beneath a lush canopy of pecan trees sleeps up to 14 and is ideal for an extended family gathering. The open-plan living area gives families plenty of room to spread out and relax while still feeling connected, and private bathrooms for each spacious bedroom offer families extra privacy and convenience. With so much to see and do outside, there is something for everyone. Parents can lounge on the riverside deck while kids throw Frisbees and do cannonballs off the dock into the cool, gentle waters of the San Marcos River. Kayaking, canoeing, and tubing expeditions for the whole family begin right in your own backyard. At night, cook out on the grill and gather around the campfire to roast marshmallows, sing songs, and catch fireflies.
