  • Dreamy location


    The Rock House is just beautiful, but its location makes it even more charming. Is super close to downtown and at reasonable distance from all the trending wineries on 290.

    Communication with host/owners was great. The check in/check out process was very easy and the house have enough accommodations to spend a wonderful weekend, any time of the year.

    Definitely we would book again!

  • Charming cabin on the river


    Comfortable, immaculate historic cabin nestled under the oaks near Blanco, TX. Easy travel to several state parks, Wimberley, Johnson City, Fredericksburg, Canyon Lake, and so much more that the hill country has to offer. Plenty to see and do, plenty of good places to eat. Excellent communication with the owner, too.

    Unfortunately, because of the drought, the river was almost dry when we were there, so we were unable to take advantage of the kayaks and floats the owners so thoughtfully provide. Maybe next time!

    You won't regret booking this cabin!

  • Great Time and place


    The stay was great even though the river was non existent at the time of our stay! The home was great with no issues and we will stay there again! Thanks to Ruth for the great communication during our stay!

    We decided to visit Blanco for a short getaway from the city. I had seen this property a few years back and had saved it. I'm so glad we finally got to stay in the Rock house. It looks just like the pictures. When we arrived, we were greeted by friendly Mrs. Ruth. All instructions and information emailed was very accurate and helpful. My daughter (age 11) and my son (age 14) had so much fun playing in the river. Most of it is low which makes it feel safe for the kids. If you go a bit to the right once in the water from the access, we found 2 spots where the water hit my husband's chest. Even in the low areas my son greatly enjoyed using the kayak that is available for guests to use. I had paid entry to the Blanco State Park for one of our days there. The day came and we headed over there, my kids and husband took one look at the water and said nope lets go back to the Rock house, the water was so much prettier/clear at the property. So we left and they went straight to it and had a blast. They literally wouldn't get out till the last bit of daylight was gone, around 9pm. Our last full day there the grass was mowed, which made it much more comfortable walking to and from the river. Access to the town is super quick and easy. We had a great time and will definitely stay at the Rock house if we go again.
