Start your mornings with a cup of coffee on the private, covered porch, followed by a midday barbeque at this house or in the shared pavilion, before taking the steps down for float in the Blanco River! Even the most adventurous have to rest. Head inside the Rock House to unwind in front of the flat-screen TV, while loved ones whip up a snack in the fully equipped kitchen. Steaks and burgers are a step away on your private propane grill, or on a charcoal grill in the shared shaded pavilion. When you're ready to retire for the night, retreat to the master bedroom, located behind the beautiful sliding barn doors. Subtle tree lighting and rustic light strings along the stone sidewalks make nighttime access easy, and fireflies are a magical bonus on summer evenings! This historic home is perfect for your next solo trip or couple's retreat. Need a base for a Hill Country wedding or family event? Inquire about the second vacation rental on the property, Evolve listing 427592. -- THE LOCATION -- This home boasts a fantastic location perched on the Blanco River which starts just twenty or so miles upstream and is nourished by many small springs including some on the property. Originally a communal meeting place for a local German community and later a Girl Scout Camp, the Rock House preserves this history along with a fifty foot long stone outdoor table and other structures from that era. Bring your water toys and fishing poles to enjoy the river right from the property. Spend your afternoon floating in the river and then recovering in the shade of your private porch, the many live oak trees or shared pavilion. The very best of Blanco awaits just 3 miles away. Enjoy a visit to the Real Ale Brewery tasting room and then browse the shops, antique stores, and restaurants of Main Street. You can also plan your visit around the many area events including bicycle rides, the Blanco Lavender Festival and monthly market days in Blanco and nearby Wimberley, Gruene and Fredericksburg! While you're in the Hill Country, tour of some of the many wineries, breweries and distilleries that stretch from Blanco to Fredericksburg! Check out the live music and dancing schedule in nearby Luckenbach, Twin Sisters and Fisher, or pop over to Albert Hall for beer, wine and great food truck fare. For something different, enjoy a burger and beverage during a game of nine pin bowling at the nearby Blanco Bowling Club. Just be sure to tip the local teens who manually reset the pins during your game. If golf is your sport, try out the fairways of Vaaler Creek Club, The Club at Rebecca Creek, Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course and Lakeside Golf. Shoppers can enjoy the vast selection of bargains at the nearby San Marcos outlet malls which include favorites like Last Call, Armani, Hugo Boss, Carolina Herrera and Kate Spade. Antique hunters will enjoy the many area shops filled with special treasures. History buffs are encouraged to drive 30 minutes to the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park - the birthplace, home, ranch, and final resting place of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, and enjoy the abundant springtime bluebonnets and other wildflowers encouraged by his wife Lady Bird. Start and end your day watching the abundant bird and wildlife along the Blanco River, including deer, armadillos, raccoons, skunks, opossums, owls and turkey, as well as the occasional osprey, snake and elusive river otter. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
