Situated just across the street from the Blanco River, this is house can be aptly said to be “dream vacation house.” It can easily accommodate up to eight guests in its two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a full sized double bed, where the second bedroom has bunk beds with a twin bed on the top and full-sized double bed on the bottom. There’s also a modern bathroom with a shower and a fully equipped kitchen, which also includes complimentary organic eggs.
