Overview

Bandera Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath, living, dining , kitchen, sitting room, 2 decks, sleeps 8-10

Cozy 2500 square foot country cottage nestled on 2700 acre paradise in the Texas hill country. Hiking, hunting, fishing, and birding are favorite activities as well as photographing wildlife, especially from Lookout Point.

One king size bed, 4 twin beds, 2 hide-a-sofas. Can sleep 8-10.

Bandera embodies the cowboy in its strong rodeo tradition. Even today you'll often see horses tied to downtown hitching posts. Bandera County dude ranches offer a taste of the cowboy lifestyle with horseback riding, trail rides, and chuckwagon meals. Secluded cabins tucked away in the hills throughout the county are perfect for watching wildlife, listening to the birds, and gazing at the stars. At local honky-tonks, the music is lively, the dance floor is full, and the beverages are cold.

Garner State Park is only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy its matchless vacation facilities. They swim in the clear waters of the Frio River, scoot its rapids on inner tubes, rent pedal boats, and hike its fascinating nature trails.

Lost Maples State park is also only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate, which gives guided tours of the beautiful hill country it shares with Seco Springs Ranch.

In August 2010 Utopia was the site of filming for a movie called 'Seven Days in Utopia', starring Robert Duvall, Lucas Black, Kathy Baker, Melissa Leo, Brian Geraghty, Deborah Ann Woll. Known for wonderful birding year around; our area is a world - class birding & wildlife viewing destination! One of the best places to see many Texas specialty birds; including the Golden - cheeked Warbler, Black - capped Vireo, Vermilion flycatcher and all 3 King - fisher varieties! Nature Guides are available to take you on private ranches and properties

Beautiful, expansive landscapes!

  • 4 of 5

Three families stayed together with our kids at this beautiful, expansive ranch--2700+ acres--and enjoyed ourselves greatly. The kids fished in the lake and everyone caught one! The large grass areas made perfect locations for family games like Frizbee and soccer. The undisturbed quiet and peacefulness of the place coupled with the wonderful views were greatly appreciated. We stayed in the cottage which was quite comfortable. Keep in mind that this is a ranch house. So don't come expecting a 5 star hotel. That said, it is very comfortable and has everything one needs including DVD player, WiFi, laundry room, and such. We came to enjoy the outdoors, so it was perfect for us. I understand the lodge house they have is fancier so for those looking for more luxury that may be the route you'd want to go. The ranch is so large that even though there were people staying at the lodge house, we never really even saw them. There is also a wonderful lookout at the top of one of the mountains/hills that I'd most heartily recommend. Beware that you need 4-wheel drive to get to the top of most any of the hills. All-in-all a beautiful ranch and a relaxing and fun stay.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you and your family really enjoyed your stay in the Cottage. Also glad that you had reserved the bunkhouse as well for extra beds and privacy. Those house being next door to each other make it perfect as an add on especially for renters of the Cottage. These houses that are in the barn area which is app. 1/2 mile from the Lodge giving each family their space. Furthermore, as you said, the property being 2700+ acres allows for lots of areas to explore. Having an ATV or a 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must to get to "Look Out Mountain"... A panoramic view of the the ranch!! Glad to hear that everyone got to fish and caught a fish! Having 2 spring fed lakes everyone can enjoy fishing in the Bass filled lakes in our catch and release program. Thanks you for choosing the Cottage at Seco Springs for your family vacation. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed our piece of paradise in the prettiest part of the Texas hill country. You'll come back!! Vicki

Bandera, Texas: Cowboy Capital of the World

In a rugged county filled with hills, rivers, and a sprawling lake, the small town of Bandera holds a really big place in the hearts of Texans. Located in the beloved Texas Hill Country less than an hour from San Antonio, Bandera reminds us of a different, more authentic, era, when a handshake was all the contract you needed, self-reliance was the norm, and chivalry was a given. There is a spirit of independence and individualism here that speaks of the cowboy tradition of hard work and hard play.

Bandera embodies the cowboy in its strong rodeo tradition. Even today you'll often see horses tied to downtown hitching posts. Bandera County dude ranches offer a taste of the cowboy lifestyle with horseback riding, trail rides, and chuckwagon meals. Secluded cabins tucked away in the hills throughout the county are perfect for watching wildlife, listening to the birds, and gazing at the stars. At local honky-tonks, the music is lively, the dance floor is full, and the beverages are cold.
