Enjoyed our 3 week stay....
Thanks, you two have been wonderful guest. A great couples retreat is what I strive to offer. I give my guest privacy and a peacefull atmosphere. I know that this is what my couples want the most during their stay with us. It's a great location.
Quiet and restful - we really enjoyed our stay at River Bend Farms
River Bend Farms accommodations were charming and well kept. We had a quiet working holiday for more than two weeks. The internet was great but cell phone reception is spotty, but since I use WIFI for communication it was okay. Our dog enjoyed visiting with the horses next door. Our host Linda was gracious and accommodating. We were sad to leave and we miss our hot sunny days in Texas!
Well equipped and great location!
The property is in a great position close to the river , clean and extremely well stocked. There is everything you need in the cabin for an enjoyable stay!
Lynda was a very attentive and responsive owner.
Serenity with hospitality!!
Linda was an amazing host! We rented the property for an extended stay. From a glass of wine by the fire pit beneath the stars, to a morning coffee in the indoor/outdoor space, to enjoying a barbecued meal seated at picnic table on the deck we were able to enjoy our stay to the fullest! Linda made sure we were comfortable, while allowing us to have our privacy. She answered our questions or concerns quickly. True southern hospitality!!! We hope to return to this cute perched cabin settled on a great piece of property with amazing views of the river!!
We had a great experience. Cabin was very welcoming. The cabin back right up to the river and the property/river are gorgeous.
Peaceful taste of Texas nature
We have been here three times now and are never disappointed. The cabin is cozy and the land is great but the true treat is access to one of the best rivers texas has to offer. Just miles from the spring that feeds it the San Marcos river is a true Texas treasure. Close enough to enjoy events in Austin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, Gruene, and even San Antonio. This rental is sure to please. Enjoy a bonfire on property or head into town, this place is great for everyone and Linda and Roy are more than accommodating. Highly recommended.
Looking for a romantic get away? Our cabin is a quiet relaxing vacation home that is centrally located between two metropolis areas, San Antonio and Austin. However, if you like the small town atmosphere, downtown areas in New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Lockhart offer antique shopping, outlet shopping, and. locally established restaurants. Our place offers small town atmosphere as its in Historical Staples,Texas population, 210. It's within walking distance of the historical park. But only 10 minutes from the city life of San Marcos and Lockhart.
