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.
