Hunt Vacation House is a beautiful family sized home with easy and private Guadalupe River access. This is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Texas Hill Country. We’re ten minutes west of Hunt along one of the prettiest stretches of country road in Texas – convenient to summer camps and off-season activities.

We're high enough on the hill to have tree top views of the Guadalupe River Valley and just a short hike down the trail to the home owner association river park with where we have two kayaks and two SUPS for our guests to use. There is a private dam just below the park so the water stays high even in the driest summers.

The house will sleep nine: There is a queen bed and private bathroom with tub in the master. The upstairs bedroom has its own balcony and private bathroom with shower. The middle two bedrooms have a trundle bed (2 singles - great for kids), a single and double bed and share a bath with laundry room.

The dining area seats eight – six at the table and two at the breakfast bar, but one of the highlights is the outdoor dining space. The family room has a high beam ceiling and a glass door with sidelights to enjoy the view and let the breeze in. If you can’t leave your technology at home there is wireless internet and satellite TV. The house has every amenity needed for a comfortable stay (oven, fridge, dishwasher, fresh linens, etc). Nothing extra is needed; just bring some groceries, a bathing suit and free time to enjoy it!

Outside we have two spacious decks with Hill Country views. Drink your morning coffee on the side deck and watch the sun rise. Enjoy an evening glass of wine while star gazing on the front deck. Guests often see deer and fox passing through the yard. There is a hammock, a porch swing, and outside eating area with gas grill.

Dogs considered individually. Dogs weighing less than 20 pounds will be allowed on prior approval only with a pet charge $50. We often waive the weight limit as long as dogs are not left in the house alone and well mannered and don't bother neighbors. No cats as the owner is severely allergic.

Cell service is decent at the house, but not at the river park or on the road to the house. We have fast fiber internet and streaming TV.

Thanks y'all,
Michelle & Danny

IconIcon
Kids Room #1

Has a double bed and a single bet so works for at third couple or pile in the kiddos. It's right next to the main bath/laundry room.
IconIcon
Kids room #2 (pass through this room to master)
2 single beds
Kids bedroom with a trundle bed (two singles). You must walk through this bedroom to the master, so it lacks privacy. Works great for a couple in the master & two kiddos in this room.

Suitability

Icon
Child friendly
There is not really room for pack & plays and our max is 9 people including children & infants. We have a great yard for kids to play in with a natural brushy barrier that seems to contain them. Highway 39 is just down the hill though and we ask guests to not allow children to cross the road or use the river park without a responsible adult to oversee them.
Children's books and toys
Icon
Events allowed
You're welcome to request special events like birthday parties or bridal showers (we even had a small wedding once). Anything more than 15 people for more than 3 hours will over fill our septic tank though so we require guests to rent and use a port a potty. These events are approved on a case by case basis and anyone not disclosed on the rental agreement can be removed for trespass if necessary. We charge $300 per person for undisclosed overlimit overnight guests. We will never agree to more than 9 people overnight.
Icon
Smoking allowed
There is no smoking allowed in the house or on the wood decks. Please respect the fact that our area is dry and often under a burn ban. If you must smoke at our home, do it on the concrete patio and dispose of cigarettes in a safe manner.
Icon
Parking Included
We have outdoor parking and one covered carport spot to park motorcycles or a single car during a thunderstorm. There is room for multiple cars.

Meet The Host

We live full time in Anchorage, Alaska and plan to spend more time each year at our home in Hunt, Texas. We love weekends both summer and winter at our condo in Girdwood, Alaska. When we retire to our house in Texas, we'll be reverse snowbirds. Winters skiing in Alaska, and summers in Texas. What are we thinking?

Getting around

We are 10 minutes west of Hunt on the hill above the river. The road follows the river so cell coverage is spotty most of the way from Ingram to Hunt, and barely works from Hunt to the house. Download or print driving directions before you leave and don't rely on your cell phone for a map! It's the country, remember?
