The bunkhouse is a rustic, elegant cabin outside Blanco toward San Marcos. It's a cozy, secluded ranch house with a double carport attached to a large deck that overlooks a pasture of longhorns, deer, exotic birds and wildlife.
The bunkhouse @ Roses River Ranch is a very comfortable yet elegant country setting for anyone who needs to "just get away" for a short period, slow down, and relax . It comfortably accommodates four people and has all the comforts of home. Dish and Wifi are available along with a washer and dryer. The kitchen is a full kitchen w microwave, a four burner gas stove and gas oven. Coffee, tea, juice, milk and muffins are provided. Check in time is 3 o'clock
and check out is noon.
Wimberley and Canyon Lake are both approximately 10-18 miles away. The bunkhouse is also centrally located for visiting local wineries near Johnson City, Fredericksburg, and New Braunfels. Gruene historic district and dancehall is approximately 28 miles from the bunkhouse straight up Hiway 306 past Canyon Lake. A jaunt to Austin is 50 miles north while San Antonio is 45 miles south. You are truly in the heart of Texas with the best of the Hill County in every direction.
Upon arrival Earl or I will greet you and briefly answer any questions you have about the place or area. We live within a mile of the bunkhouse so we are accessible if you need us for any
reason. We respect your privacy so you probably won't see us unless you need us for one reason or another.
We have an unfenced 3-4 foot deep pond in the front area so due to the danger of young children accidently falling in, we do not rent to children under 12. We would be devastated if anything happened to a young child while the family was staying with us.
Our pet policy is also not to have pets as our guests even though we love animals.
Here are a few house rules:
Please do not smoke in the house. We will provide an ashtray on the deck for smokers.
Even though our longhorns are our pets, we ask you NOT to go in the pasture where they are. They are huge and we don't want anyone to get hurt. They love to have their pictures taken, but please do it from the deck or the bunkhouse area. Thanks.
Earl and I wanted to share our beautiful space with people who love animals and appreciate nature. The stars are beautiful in the big sky and the country life style is addicting. I am a retired middle school teacher and Earl recently retired from 35 years of owning a dental lab in San Antonio. We are dedicated to caring for our pet longhorns and giving thanks for all our blessings. Earl's hobbies include cooking, gardening and enjoying bird watching. I collect vintage linens and love to find old treasures of any kind at estate sales, open air markets or garage sales. Our favorite vacation destinations are beaches or fishing getaways for Earl. Isla Mujeres, Mexico is always beckoning...come back.
