About Beth Cunningham

We are an Austin family of six who always dreamed of having that space in the country to let the children run and play, free from worry and plenty of room for imaginations to roam.

Beth Cunningham purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why Beth Cunningham chose Blanco

We chose this idyllic location because it was private but easily accessible from our home in Austin. At night, the cool breezes, breathtaking Texas sunsets and the quiet, star-filled skies are irresistible. This is the place to re-charge!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Less than a hour from the city, we discovered native Texas at its best:

The only sounds at this secluded hill country location are the cicadas, whiporwills and bullfrogs at sunset.

The only lights visible at night come from the moon and stars.

A few days and nights here and it is hard to return to civilization!

Twenty minutes from restaurants & shopping at the Hill Country Austin Galleria; 60 minutes from Austin Bergstrom & 90 minutes from San Antonio International airports.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had our annual girls weekend here and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect! So beautiful and relaxing! The owner was very flexible and easy to work with, and easy to contact with any issues. Most of the girls drove from Houston, so it was a great getaway without having to go too far. It was priced just right and worth every bit of it. We will definitely consider coming back next year!!

Amazing!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place is incredible! My wife and I booked this trip as a last ditch effort to give our kids (7 yr old girl and 4 yr old boy) some entertainment before school resumes. We had a wonderful time! Pictures do not do this place justice! Everything was in beautiful condition and the owners were super friendly throughout the whole process. Hummingbirds, swallows, deer, and the biggest rabbits I have ever seen! Our kids were in heaven. We spent 2 nights here and about 90% of the time in the pool. I can't wait to go back to enjoy the property and explore! Not only did we have the best weekend in our young family's time together, but we now have a new aspiration! I am working my can off for a place like this! Truly an experience of a lifetime! Thank you so much for opening your home to our family and giving us memories we will never forget!

Great Hill Country Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us rented this house for a girls getaway weekend in May! We all loved everything about this house! It's beautiful and decorated so nicely!!! We arrived at the house on Friday, brought food for the entire weekend, so we never left the property. The house is pretty far out in the country, but with the directions provided by the owner no one had any issues finding the house, even one person who arrived after sunset.

The house was perfectly set up for a group, the kitchen is big and gorgeous (perfect for lots of people hanging out) and it flows right into a dining area and living room. The wall of windows accordion open to the back patio, which was amazing! The outdoor living area was great, there was a table on the patio which was nice for lunch/dinner. The pool was large and the hot tub was a good size too. The sound system throughout the house and outdoor area was awesome we had music going the entire time!

If I had to say any cons, it'd be the carpet (which isn't in very many parts of the house) it's almost like jute carpet so it's not very comfortable to walk on, so be sure to bring some slip on shoes and the hot tub didn't get as warm as we would've liked. However, neither of these items would keep us from going back, in fact a couple of the girls were already talking about booking a weekend at the house with their husbands!

Overall, it was a GREAT house that provided for a fun, enjoyable, and relaxing weekend! The owner was easy to work with, and the property was very clean. We were very satisfied with this property, I would definitely recommend to anyone! Hope to be back soon! :)

AMAZING Home & Views (Not sure which to list first)!

AMAZING Home & Views (Not sure which to list first)!
  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying the owner images do not do this property justice! The house is just gorgeous...state of the art everything from the appliances in the kitchen to the sound system that easily pumped music to the other side of the pond. Plenty of room for SAFE romping around for kids of just about any age. Can see all sides of the fishing pond from the kitchen. The vanishing edge pool - WOW - huge and gorgeous. Everything is set on timers...at one moment the fountains in the pool are gently blowing, then the fountain in the pond, then the waterfall to the pond, deer feeders...I could go on and on. The grounds kept the kids entertained (12-19yrs). The pool table (perfect shape) allowed for family pool tournaments and the kid "invented and tested" hand ball tourneys. The back doors to the patio....TOTALLY OPEN. We had amazing weather for this and the house was wide open most of our visit. Who dreads cooking for 9 when looking out open doors to the amazing Texas Hill Country? Got a tree climber? They'll be sleeping outside in a tree - so many to easily climb. Hot tub seats 16 easily and has amazing views of gorgeous Texas sunsets. The pool - shallow enough for younger kids for more than 1/2, and 8' at the other end. The vanishing edge water, disappears into another part of the pool down low with views of the "back 90" (complete with bench in water), the pond, and the amazing oaks and deer herds in early evening (almost wide enough for my swimmers to workout). House was nicely stocked with amenities and extremely clean. A 10 minute drive had us at the Hamilton Pool for an easy 1/2 day easy to moderate hiking and view of the pool (which was open for swimming but about 55 degrees - brrrrr - get there early, so pretty it could fill up). A few other parks to visit but sitting in the backyard, watching the cousins play in the pool and romp on the grounds...MUCH better :) People are going to read this and say "glowing review, what was wrong." So here it goes...a knife needed to be sharpened (we are cookers) and we should have packed a float or two for the pool (we packed inflatable boats for the pond that we used in the pool instead - one cousin had a broken arm that we needed to keep dry)....that's it. Just gorgeous! Can you tell we enjoyed it?

Excellent Hill Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this property. The home is very well maintained and even nicer than the photos suggest. It is conveniently located for day trips to Hamilton Pool and Pedernales Falls, and perfect to come back to the pool and hot tub after a day of hiking. Also very relaxing to wake up in the morning and have breakfast outside looking at the pond and wildflowers. We had a minor problem with the satellite reception on the t.v., but the owner was very accomodating and did her best to fix the problem. Overall, we highly recommend this property and look forward to coming back.

AMAZING HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I rented this property for a long weekend in early April. This property is incredibly nice, and allowed for a very relaxing weekend. Easy to find by following the home owners directions. The back of the house is a wall of accordian windows that open up the entire backside of the house and looks upon an infinity pool and hot tub. Every feature of this house is exquisite and you can tell the home owners take pride and very good care of the property. The owner was easy to work with, and I got my deposit back in a timely manner. I'd highly recommend this property for a group or even a family...large master bedroom down with king bed and great master bathroom; one bedroom upstairs with two full beds, and a loft including two sets of bunk beds. Beautiful place!
