Come relax at the River House, our beautiful two-story cabin with breathtaking views of the river. This tranquil getaway is located on the banks of the Colorado, just minutes from historic downtown Smithville, Texas.
After you’ve napped on the deck, walk down through our small pecan orchard and enjoy private access to the river. Fish from the banks, or wade in and go swimming, tubing, kayaking or canoeing. In the evening, you’ll have a front row seat for our lovely Texas sunsets and starry nights.
For a change of pace, stroll down Main Street and check out all the wonderful antique shops and restaurants nearby.
Many films are shot in Smithville, including Sandra Bullock’s Hope Floats, as well as the upcoming film, Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. Take a tour of all the featured locations throughout town, then come home and browse through our extensive video library.
The house is also an easy 30 minutes east of the Circuit of the Americas track, so you don't have to deal with Austin traffic. Come stay with us for Formula 1 Grand Prix, X Games and all the other great COTA events!
The River House is a great destination for birdwatchers. Come discover the many species of birds that live on the banks of the Colorado. If you’re there at the right time of year, you’ll even see our family of bald eagles!
