Retreat inside to escape the Texan heat and lounge in the refreshing air conditioning. Turn on the flat-screen TV and unwind with a movie or sports game. Easy and enjoyable meal preparation is guaranteed with this fully equipped kitchen. Two can sit at the breakfast bar over snacks while the chef elects work on whipping up a delicious homemade dinner. Host a family feast at the elegant dining table centered between the living area and kitchen! Spend tranquil evenings savoring quality time with your loved ones on the deck. One side of the deck faces the river, while the other boasts lovely forest views. Plenty of comfy seating options can accommodate the 4 of you - kick back, relax, and sip a nightcap while making plans for the next day! When nighttime falls, you'll be more than content with either highly-appointed bedroom. Each room features fresh linens and en-suite bathrooms; guests of the first bedroom will enjoy a plush king bed, and those who stay in the second room will love having private access to the deck. -- THE LOCATION -- With the San Marcos river a stone's throw away, you'll definitely want to spend a day or 2 on the water! Head over to Spencer Canoes less than 1 mile away to check out tube, raft, canoe, and kayak rentals. If you're traveling the second Saturday in June, this vacation rental is a perfect home base for the Texas River Safari. The first port of the race happens to be right behind the house at the Martindale Dam, built by the owner’s grandfather, A. H. Smith - the same person who built the 'World ‘s Largest Cotton Gin' next door! Drive about 15 minutes to San Marcos and look forward to an easy-going afternoon exploring the historic downtown or cheering on the Texas State University Bobcats. San Marcos Lions Club Tube Rental is another great spot for water craft rentals! Take a day trip to Austin and explore its many lakes, parks, and fantastic live music scene. Only 45 minutes away, you can easily drive up for daytime outdoor activities and a night on the town! -- REST EASY WITH EVOLVE -- Evolve makes it easy to find and book properties you’ll never want to leave.
