Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an awesome time!!! The place was just perfect for our family

to enjoy each other. We walked into town one day for shopping and lunch,

then came back and the kids did the rope swing for 2 hours straight. On

the website it says the place is booked till next year--If something

changes last minute for one of the weekends due to a cancellation please

give us a shout! We would jump on a last-minute chance to

go back; summer or winter.

My family and I have rented Charles' riverside home twice and cannot wait to return! It is perfect for the family. Truly five star accommodations with literally everything that you could ever want and more. We enjoyed the swimming pool each morning and ended the day in the afternoon using the kayaks in the river and grilling out. Simply gorgeous. So relaxing! We were close to all of the attractions, yet we were worlds away in such a peaceful setting. I recommend booking for at least three nights to enjoy the tranquil setting and the fun area activities. The home is spacious and well-appointed with an ideal layout for meals, television, playing games, and quiet relaxation. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Charles!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Mills Race Lodge. My children begged to return for our summer getaway! The house has absolutely everything to entertain the kids and the adults. The creek was so crystal clear. Every day we paddled down to Inzo's for lunch and to listen to the bands. This year the pool was a real treat. I spent most of my time reading and floating. The master bed is like sleeping on a cloud. We had an air conditioning issue when we checked in but the owner , who was in Italy, handled it immediately. He is more than accommodating and gracious. I am looking forward to our 3rd stay next summer!

Lovely, but no A/C in August in Texas is tough

  • 3 of 5

The location of the house and amenities were very nice. The property was clean and well maintained. However, the air conditioning on the main floor did not work so sleeping, preparing meals, eating and lounging in the living area in 81-82 degree rooms was not pleasant in August in Texas. Reported that the A/C unit outside the master bathroom was not working and an A/C repairman was sent to the house in a timely manner, however he did not look at the unit that was reported to not be working and just noted the other two units were working.

Enjoyed the kayaks and the pool! The creek is a great temperature and has great shade with the lovely trees.

The location is great and close to great shops and restaurants. Highly recommend eating at Hays City Store and The Leaning Pear.

Owner's Response: Michele--Just for the sake of accuracy, the A/C repairman was dispatched to the house twice during your stay. On both visits he determined that the problem was due to human error: someone kept switching the thermostat from "cool" to "heat". We attributed the problem to curious boys, just as we had a problem during your stay with someone tampering with the glass break sensor on the security system (which had been pulled off the wall). In our communications, you certainly did not sound as unhappy as you do in this review. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience, but we had the A/C repairman return after you left and he still does not see any problem with that cooling zone that was not caused by humans. It's all working well! Best, Charles

Best Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want everyone in your group to be thrilled with where you chose your vacation rental - this is the place. We felt completely spoiled as the place had everything we needed!!! The location is PERFECT. The walk to downtown Wimberley is no more than 5 minutes. The back access to the water is great and the view is beautiful. We spent most of our time in the back overlooking the water. There is so much for kids and adults to do and the house was absolutely beautiful and we felt pampered with the 'extras" we didn't expect!!! VERY CLEAN and well taken care of by housekeeping. This is the place you want to stay! We will be back!

Best Find Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Mill Race experience was a great one for our family this week - everything we needed was there and so much more! The creek was clear and kid-friendly, and when we got too cold from fresh water, we headed to the pool in the sun. The kitchen and living rooms were open to one another, large dining table and refrigerator, grill on the back porch for outdoor dining options. We planned to go into town to eat at night; however, we were so at home and relaxed we didn't want to clean up and leave! Great rental for sure!

The perfect spot for a family get together.

  • 5 of 5

The afternoon we arrived we found everything in excellent order. The location was close to everything we needed including restaurants and groceries. The owners emails were very helpful and all our questions were answered quickly. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family. The pool was a nice addition as the adults and kids spent a good deal of time in it. The restaurants were great and interesting shops to browse in. All in all we had a very nice time.

Take a swim in the historic Blue Hole, or zip across the hillside on the longest and highest zipline in Texas. Sample locally produced wines flavored by the Tuscan-like geography.
