RIVER VIEW BUNGALOW CAPTURES ESSENCE OF TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

Blanco Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Ready for a quiet getaway for family and friends, the newly remodeled and refurnished River View Guest House awaits you in Blanco, Texas. Built in 1939, this beautiful bungalow style home is nestled in the shade of five huge pecan trees.

Blanco is in the heart of the unique Texas Hill Country. Enjoy the drive into town as you pass through the rolling hills. The town was named after the white limestone on the bottom of the river.

As you approach the native stone home, imagine resting with a good book or talking with a friend on the bench swing on the front porch. Entering the house, you are greeted by amber walls and the original hardwood floors. As the sun sets, the floors and walls assume a particularly lovely glow. The detail and simplicity of the trim around the windows and doorways is pleasing to the eye, and the arch between the rooms invites you to explore. The spacious sunroom at the back of the house is enclosed with windows to gaze at the glistening sun reflecting off the Blanco River.

A large, well-stocked kitchen can be used by guests for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. It can accommodate meals for large gatherings of family and friends as easily as a romantic dinner for two. The roomy living area has conversation areas and a gaming table. Kick your feet up in the comfy chairs in the old dining room to watch the cable TV or a DVD. Outside, the three patios beckon you to watch the birds and feel the gentle breezes. Outside seating tempts you to barbeque a meal on the grill for your group.

Reservations can be made for the whole house. There are three bedrooms to sleep six with accommodations for an additional four guests.

River View Guest House is designed to be a place of comfort and connection. We welcome your visit.

Description of the House and Rates

The River View Guest House is a bungalow style home built in 1939. The house has two bedrooms downstairs and an attic bedroom upstairs. Antiques found at auctions and estate sales grace the rooms without creating clutter.

The house can sleep 6 - 10 people. You, your friends and family will have the house to yourselves. The house is reserved for $250 per night, with reduced rates for longer stays. An additional charge of $15 per person per night is required for parties over six people.

The River Bedroom is the larger of the two downstairs. This bedroom features a queen-sized bed and a great view of the river. There is also a very comfortable down-covered bench for lounging or reading a book.

The downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower/bathtub.

The Pecan Bedroom with its bead-board walls and queen-sized bed will lull you into a tranquil sleep with its cozy ambiance.

The Starry Loft Bedroom is reached after ascending the stairs through the pecan tree limbs. Imagine a secret hideaway. The room features a king size bed with a thick pillow topper that can convert to two twins. This ample bedroom has its own full bathroom with shower. Those who retire early will appreciate the quiet and privacy of the Starry Loft.

Two additional people can be accommodated at the house by use of a queen-sized deluxe Aerobed thick inflatable bed. If needed, two more people can sleep on the two leather couches in the living room.

The River View Guest House is also available for hosting gatherings of family and friends without an overnight stay. Call for event packages and customizable options, such as Knit-ins, Quilt-ins, Reunions, Book Groups, Wine or Wildflower Tours, etc.

Coming soon:

River View Cottage --- solid flagstone rock walls, private bath, private deck, separate building, and kitchenette --- stayed tuned!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Elizabeth,

Your home is so beautiful and every where I turn, there is another wonderful treasure waiting to be discovered. As we were drifting off to sleep last night, I was thinking "She's thought of everything to ensure a memorable stay", and then I heard a chime tinkling softly in the wind and my thought was confirmed.

Thank you so much.

I chose this house due to its location by the river and three blocks from the town square. I also like how peaceful this place feels.

The house is 3 short blocks from the town square that is surrounded by restaurants and shops. The back gate enters into the Blanco State Park where there is easy access to swimming in the water.

What a wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the River House in Blanco Texas and had a fabulous time. My son got married on May 4th 2014 and we decided to rent the River Home due to its location, convenience and the hospitality of the owner. The weather was perfect and being next to the river and downtown made our vacation so easy. We fished, walked the trails, barbecued out and basically had a wonderful time. If you were in need of anything, you could just open a closet or drawer and find it. We spent a week and never once turned on the television. This was our first trip to the Hill Country of Texas and we found the area to be most beautiful and people even more so. The only regrets we had was that the time was way to short. We would have loved to spend more time exploring the area and fishing the river. This is a vacation house that really makes you feel at home. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone. This is truly a home away from home.

Wedding Time

  • 5 of 5
We selected the Riverview B&B because of its location to the Methodist church & the Old Blanco County Court House. It was perfect for both venues. We loved how the house was decorated and how spacious it was as the visitors came in all day to visit the bride before the wedding. It was the perfect back drop for several wedding photos. The makeup girls had plenty of room to do hair & makeup on the sun porch. Her cousin stayed in the separate loft with its on entrance so the kids had some quiet time while other guest were downstairs gathered in the sunroom. We had a horse & buggy service from the house to the courthouse. The buggy had a vacant lot to wait in across the street. It was perfect for our destination wedding in Blanco. Elizabeth was a joy to talk to, she even gave me a photographer contact in Austin & we used her for the wedding photos.

Great time!

The house is better than advertised. It was well stocked, clean, and the owner is very easy to work with. We enjoyed walking to the river and downtown. The house has a nice front porch and lots of places to relax.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent the weekend in Blanco to celebrate the kids last day of school. With 3 full bedrooms and plenty of space for air mattresses we had plenty of space for our group that included 6 kids. The river access is great, the house is very welcoming and everything is included you need for a great weekend away. Less than 1.5 hours from North Austin makes it much closer than other lake and river weekends we have done. Would have loved to spend more time on the awesome porch but the mosquitoes this time of year were ferocious once the sun was setting. They didn't stop us from using the great yard for most the weekend. We would have loved to walk around town more, but spent most the weekend in the river and in the park. Next time will try and stay for more than 2 nights. Owner is very friendly and accommodating!

Cute house, good rental

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed for 3 nights. The house was cute and homey, very clean, nicely decorated and well stocked. Lots of attention to detail by the owner (e.g. food stuffs like pancake mixes and eggs; shampoos, soaps and body lotions; area travel guides available for use). Since we stayed over Halloween she even left a dish with candy in case anybody came by that evening. Very thoughtful. And the owner was very easy to work with.

The sunroom is great. We didn't use the king bedroom because it is separate from the main body of the house and requires exterior stairs to access it. The only thing we missed was not having a modern (larger) TV. The big fenced yard has a gate for direct access to Blanco State Park.

Great place for famalies

  • 5 of 5
We returned from a 3 night stay at the Riverview Blanco property and I am still grinning from ear to ear. We stayed with 2 families with four children under the age of five and the place was perfect for us. With one family upstairs and the other downstairs, it seemed as if we had our own private accommodations while still having a great game room, family room and kitchen to share. I have stayed in many VRBOs and this was by far the most spacious, welcoming, and well stocked rental I have encountered. The backyard was amazing with room for my kids to ride their bikes and plenty of outdoor seating for the adults to enjoy the cool, shaded backyard patio. The girls enjoyed the 5 minute walk to downtown for a day of shopping and exploring the courthouse. The Real Ale Brewery tour was only a couple of miles from the house and a great way to spend an afternoon tasting some of the best beer in Texas. The house was also equipped with floats for up to 6 guests which we was a nice touch for tubing in the river. And, the bicycle for two was a big hit for everyone. I look forward to returning and enjoying all the house has to offer. You will not be disappointed.
