Wrapped in the green forest of summer, Casa del Rio Riverhouse is a tranquil place to relax and enjoy the winding, cool water of the Guadalupe River. Guests reside in a lovely stone and stucco cottage overlooking the river below. Fall colors tantalize the senses as we progress to the stark beauty of winter with sight of the cliffs and hills that were hidden from view. All through the year the starry night is ablaze at this tranquil retreat. This beautiful property offers water, wings and wildlife for photographers and nature lovers, quiet seclusion for romantic getaways, and a comfortable, river-centered atmosphere for family fun. Whether looking for the perfect setting for a family gathering, or just a respite from the daily grind, you will find it under the huge Cypress and Chinkapin Oak trees at Casa del Rio Riverhouse!
Something for everyone!
The Riverhouse has 2 bedrooms which sleep up to 6 people, a full bath, central heat and air, homey living/dining area with stone front wood-burning fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen. A spacious private outdoor area overlooks the river, and includes a table with 6 chairs, 2 lounge chairs, and 2 rocking chair swings hanging from a stately old Chinkapin Oak tree. Enjoy all this while listening to the timeless sound of the river flowing amid the rocks and sprawling Cypress trees. Abundant wildlife, featuring Whitetail and Axis deer, mingle with the foliage, completing your Hill Country retreat.

Great Place to Stay
Our family of four had a wonderful time at Casa Del Rio. The house was great. It had all modern amenities while maintaining its older and charm. Be prepared for minimal cell and wifi service although anyone should have no issue turning off the electronics while here. The private backyard area complete with firepit, grill, chairs, and swings overlooking the river created the perfect way to end an evening.
The property has endless activities for family members of all ages. In addition to endless spots to relax and enjoy the scenery, there are so many things to do. While we had a wonderful time hiking and exploring the large hill and property behind the river, it was the river itself that provided the best entertainment. The water on the property features the unique ability to offer all water activities your family desires. There are areas to fish, canoe, swim, and even ride a tube without even leaving the property.
The town of Hunt is minutes away with Kerrville a short and enjoyable drive further. The host could not have been more pleasant to deal with. She is available to answer any questions you may have. Betty is truly a sweet and caring woman that will make you feel like family. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful property with us.
Thanks for your awesome review. It was wonderful having you here.
It is difficult to explain the beauty of this place, it really has to be experienced. it is reminiscence of days gone by with the peace one feels, the beauty of the huge trees and outstanding landscape, the meandering river that flows below the house, the canoe trip up the wide deep part of the river to a waterfall, the deer that graze in the meadow, and the chats around the fire pit in the evening.
It is truly a heavenly place.
The house is located on the most beautiful piece of property. A great place to recharge. Betty is a sweetheart. ❤️
Great getaway-even in winter
Lovely grounds-quiet and peaceful in off-season. Betty is so gracious, just wonderful all around.
Thank you for coming to Casa del Rio Riverhouse.
I am so fortunate to have you as my wonderful guests.
Winter is a special time here with the hills visible through the trees.
It is a time for sitting in front of the fireplace and viewing the river, and
for sitting around the fire pit and roasting marshmellows.
It is a time for reflecting on the year ahead and vacation plans to make.
What a beautiful, quiet place in the hill country
We were very impressed with the cottage and the beauty around it. The Guadalupe River is just a few steps away. We’ll definitely be back.
Wonderful weekend at Casa del Rio Riverhouse-- exactly what we needed!
We had the most wonderful weekend at Casa del Rio Riverhouse. Betty was a kind and generous hostess, and the property exceeded our expectations. We loved being so close to the river, and the stretch of river the guest house was on could not have been prettier. We enjoyed all of the amenities-- taking the canoe out, a fire in the fire place, enjoying the outdoor furniture, and a little hike. We parked the car on Friday evening and didn't start it again until it was time to leave on Sunday. It was the perfect way to relax and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery and peace of the river. Thank you, Betty, for making our fourth anniversary weekend so special! We'll be back!
Thank you so much for coming to Casa del Rio, and for your great review.
It was a joy to meet both of you wonderful people, and I am so happy you enjoyed being in this beautiful. peaceful place. In this Heavenly place, life slows down and nature takes over.
The property is one of a kind. Betty made us feel welcome and at home. Can't wait to go back!
Deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Casa del Rio Riverhouse is on 50 beautiful acres overlooking the Guadalupe River. You can swim, fish, canoe, rock hunt, and enjoy the beauty. Listen to the sound of the river, star gaze at night, and hike in the hills behind the Riverhouse. The winding roads along the river for many miles are very scenic. The area offers art and theatre at the Cailloux Theatre, the Hill Country Art Foundation, the Cowboy Art Museum in Kerrville, and the Point Theatre in Ingram. The famous Kerrville Folk Music Festival and Texas Arts and Crafts Fair are recurring favorites every May/June. In Ingram (7 miles east) there is a dam for dam sliding, swimming and boating. Crider's, established in the 1920s, just 1 mile away, is a rodeo with dining and dancing under the stars from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The surrounding area (within a 4 mile radius) is well known for many private summer camps for children and teenagers. Many of these camps have been operating since 1927. An abundance of wildlife, including whitetail and axis deer, graze in the fields surrounding the Riverhouse. There are many exotic ranches in the area where hunters from all over the country come to hunt bison, sika, fallow, axis and white tail deer, black buck antelope, addax, dama gazelle, aoudad, scimitar oryx and water buffalo. The beautiful foliage of the maple trees in Lost Maples State Park, about 45 miles to the west, is at its peak in November. The area here has remarkable beauty with many hills 250 to 300 ft high. There are cypress trees along the river, as well as pecan trees, oak trees and sycamores. You will love it here and be so welcome.
