About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

This stunning estate is an ideal getaway and refuge to escape from the hectic pace of your busy everyday schedule. Grand River Retreat is a very unique property that artfully combines the best of a bright and airy summer home that rests just above the banks of the Blanco River. This one of a kind waterfront home has a casual elegance and serenity you are sure to enjoy.

Grand River Retreat contains numerous windows that pour in beautiful bright sunlight, and upscale furnishings for the ultimate relaxation. The central living area consists of a very open and spacious floor plan. The large “chef’s dream” kitchen opens up to the living area giving our guests a great feeling of togetherness during their stay. High ceilings, stained glass lighting fixtures, exposed rock accent walls, and granite counters are just a few of the high-end amenities this home offers. Right off the living area is an oversized, elevated back deck with plenty of shade, outdoor lounging furniture, and views. This is the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee or enjoy your favorite glass of wine in the evenings.

As you make your way downstairs, you will first come to the lovely master bedroom with plush king size bed, fluffy white linens, flat screen TV, and doors for access the lower level back patio. Secondly you will find the bunk room, perfect for the kiddos! This bedroom offers 2 sets of comfortable twin bunk beds. The third bedroom including a comfy king size bed is located on the top floor near the entry way. There is a detached suite downstairs from the main house with an additional plush queen size bed, full bathroom and kitchenette. This fabulous river house ideally accommodates groups of up to 10 guests comfortably.

The kids will love the gigantic backyard with tons of room to run and play. You can walk right down to the river in approximately 5-6 minutes, or for easier access, there is a paved drive so you can load up the ice chests and water toys and easily transport them down to the water without breaking a sweat! This hidden gem also has one feature that stands out above the rest…the water levels! Although we cannot predict mother nature, this specific location of the Blanco typically has above average amounts of water in it allowing you to get completely submerged and cool off.

Call us today so your family can start making their own memorable moments at Grand River Retreat!

We really enjoyed our stay at Grand River Retreat! The river was so enjoyable and secluded. The house was gorgeous and very comfortable. Thanks to the owners for opening up their home to us! We had a great time!

Absolutely gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and her family rented this house for the weekend during the summer of 2016 and we all had such a fantastic time. The house is gorgeous and spacious and the river access is unbeatable - I've just spent a few hours looking to rent a house for my upcoming birthday this summer and can't find anything remotely similar to this property!

Amazing Property - Very Poorly Managed

  • 1 of 5

My family stayed at this property the summer of 2015. We were so taken aback with the pristine beauty of the house and surrounding property! This is truly a gem of a vacation property. However! The management company that operates this property is HORRIBLE. We had to stack up garbage for the week we were there....IN THIS BEAUTIFUL no point was the garbage collected from the can out front (which was FULL upon our arrival!). Not an impressive way to start a vacation of the caliber we paid for. Next, the "chef's dream kitchen" that is advertised? The kitchen itself is lovely. It is in no way stocked with supplies needed to cook a meal for even four people - much less the 10-14 people that the property is advertised to sleep. There were not adequate flatware or silverware for even four people to eat. There is very little cookware, utensils, bake ware - NOTHING. We even called a week before our trip to see if we needed to bring anything to prepare meals for 12 people. The microwave had a sign on it "BROKEN - DO NOT USE". We were assured that the kitchen was fully stocked - another misrepresentation by management. After spending upwards of $700 to PURCHASE the items we needed to make this kitchen work, we found that the downstairs AC wasn't working. We slept the first night with half of us sweating and the other half freezing. The next few days went ok...until the dishwasher broke. And the garbage disposal. We were told both would be replaced that day. (this was day 2 of our 7-day stay). These appliances were never replaced. We spent the remainder of our vacation hand-washing dishes out of a single side of the sink. When we approached management about these issues (on a daily basis) they were very disinterested in finding a solution. At check-out, I was asked how our stay was. When I told the lady (whom I'd spoken to several times throughout the week about these on-going issues - must've slipped her mind) how our stay was, she offered a very underwhelming "sorry." as I passed the key back to her. For what we paid to stay in this lovely home, you'd think the appliances would be working, and management would be interested in obtaining our repeat business. Not the case! Sorry to say I cannot recommend renting ANY PROPERTY MANAGED BY HILL COUNTRY PREMIER. Since our stay, I've tried to contact them several times to address the issues above. I have received ZERO REPLY. This review was written in April of 2016 - still no contact
