Nestled in the gorgeous Texas hill country, this Blanco vacation rental home is the ultimate setting to simply get away from it all! This pleasant 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom cottage has enough space to comfortably accommodate 5 guests, making it the perfect escape for a family or a group of close friends traveling together.


Upon your arrival, you will immediately fall in love with this alluring property. The large front porch, complete with seating areas for reading and relaxing, overlooks the surrounding lush green space and bright blue skies, welcoming you with a beautifully rustic ambiance that can only be found in the Texas Hill Country. Inside, the house is warm and cozy, boasting welcoming décor, lots of glorious natural light, and a gas fireplace, all of which create a delightfully charming atmosphere for your stay. The cottage also offers all of the comforts of your own home, including wireless internet access and a full-size washer and dryer for your laundry needs.

After an exciting day exploring the area, come home to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully stocked kitchen. If you'd prefer some barbecue, in true Texas fashion, fire up the charcoal barbecue pits on the back pergola, while your loved ones relax on the abundance of outdoor furniture and admire a gorgeous Texas sunset over the expansive back yard. Additionally, the outdoor area features an audio sound system that hooks up to your mobile device, so you can fill the air with your favorite tunes! When dinner is ready, enjoy your delicious meal as you sit around the picnic table out back or indoors around the wooden table, near the fireplace.

Later, retreat to the living room area where you can watch your favorite shows on the 48-inch Smart TV. If you prefer to watch television from the comfort of a warm king-sized bed, the master bedroom is complete with a 32-inch flat screen TV. Before drifting off to sleep, listen to the comforting sounds of the vinyl record player, or gaze up at the stars through the large sky light - this master bedroom practically guarantee's a good night's rest!


Perhaps the best feature of this lovely home is its prime location! From here, you'll be a short distance away from several of the Hill Country's most reputable wineries and breweries. Some favorite wineries include Torre Di Pietra and Grape Creek in Fredericksburg, Sister Creek in Sisterdale and Pedernales Cellars in Stonewall. Some notable breweries in the area are Real Ale Brewing in Blanco, which is located 5 minutes away and features a tap room and tours. Pecan Street Brewing in Johnson City is just 15 minutes away and 30 minutes away is the Fredericksburg Brewery which serves delicious food. If you're in the mood for some dancing, there are also some great bars nearby. Try the Albert Dance Hall, located 15 minutes down the road, the Luckenbach Dance Hall, 25 minutes away, or Max's Roadhouse in Spring Branch. Once you've worked up an appetite, try one of the area's terrific local restaurants, such as Oak Creek Café in Blanco, East Main Grill in Johnson City, the Pig Pen food truck in Albert and Pasta Bella in Fredericksburg.

Though the area has endured some damage from the recent flooding, the rivers and lakes are full again after many dry years, and there is plenty to do! Take advantage of Blanco State Park, located 100 feet away from the house, where you can fish, walk, hike, swim, picnic, tube, bird watch and relax in the river. Canoe and tube rentals are available through the park. Other nearby parks and outdoor activities include Pedernales Falls State Park, Canyon Lake, Lyndon B. Johnson State Park, Guadalupe River State Park, Hamilton's Pool Preserve, Jacob's Well and Krause Springs. Blanco Town Square, home of the annual Lavender Festival, is a short 2-minute drive from the cottage and offers some great Hill Country shopping opportunities. If you don't mind a bit of a drive, San Antonio and Austin are about 1 hour from the property and Marble Falls, known for the "Walkway of Lights" during the holidays as well as Lake LBJ, is just 40 minutes away. No matter how you choose to spend your time here in the Texas hill country, this wonderful Blanco vacation rental cottage will quickly become a place you want to return to year after year.

Very nice and convenient place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The property was in excellent condition. It was well appointed with everything needed for a wonderful stay. The only improvement I would suggest is that the door in the downstairs bedroom which has a full window, needs a window treatment or covering. My daughter in law was uncomfortable with the full uncovered window in the door which opens onto the patio.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Cottage Inn in Blanco, Texas was just what we wanted for a "all girl's weekend" adventure. It was very clean and well stocked. We especially enjoyed the back patio. There was a barn swallow nest under the pergola and we loved watching the parents feed the fledglings. The cottage is within easy driving distance to many other towns, wineries, etc. I do have 2 suggestions -- 1) the step down from the back porch onto the patio was dangerous and could use another step added. 2) we were never able to get either television to work - maybe more instructions on the remotes, etc. would be helpful to we tech-challenged older people. Other than those two things, we absolutely loved our stay there and would recommend it to anyone.

Adorable Home!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the home is very open and nice for a family 4. We saw a family of deer in the very back of the neighbors yard each night. Very peaceful little neighborhood.

I HIGHLY recommend this cute little cottage! The owners are very friendly and responded right away with any of my questions.

Blanco State park is a very short walk from the house. It's centrally located in the Hill Country to explore many different towns while your visiting.

The cottage has sound systems indoors and outdoors. It is very clean. The beds are amazingly comfortable and there's even extra standing fans. It is very private with a big back yard complete with BBQ pit and fire pit. You'll love this place!

Nice spring break trip!

  • 4 of 5

Nice 3 bedroom cottage in Blanco with plenty of room for our family! Indoor and outdoor areas are spacious and comfortable to come back to after exploring the area state parks. Distances to the state parks driving are 1 minute to the entrance of Blanco State Park. It takes about 30 minutes to Perdanales State Park and an hour to Enchanted Rock.

The kitchen has plenty of pots, dishes and pantry items for just about any type meal.The dining and living areas were spacious and comfortable. The outdoor area has a large grassy area in addition to a large patio area.

The bedrooms were comfortable with luxurious type sheets The towels were also nice quality though it would have been nice to have more than one per person.The owner/manager was responsive and attentive to our messages during our stay!
