Amenities

 

the property

Located almost perfectly in between San Antonio and Austin Texas, Blanco Valley Lodge is far from traffic and city lights.  Guests enter through our private gate and are immediately greeted with views of open fields, river bluffs, and a beautiful Texas sky.  The Lodge includes a 6,000-square foot luxury home, 1,100 square foot guest house, and over 4,700 square feet of outdoor decking outfitted with tiki torches, hot tub, fire pit, Texas shaped pool, washer pits, and basketball goal. 

 

the main house

The main house floor plan includes 4 spacious bedrooms, a bunkhouse loft, four full bathrooms, a dining hall with two 16-foot farmhouse tables, a fully-equipped kitchen, game room, large gathering spaces with three fireplaces, and numerous windows to enjoy the view. 

The kitchen and dining spaces were designed to entertain a large group but allow for everyone to feel included and comfortable. Guests will find plenty of counter space for prepping as well as bar space for socializing as meals are brought together.  All amenities were purchased in 2017 and include a commercial ice maker and fridge, 4 ovens, large island, oversized pantries, dinner, drink, and silverware for 40, multiple Keurig’s and coffee pots and numerous large serving platters. Our indoor dining space has an incredible view of the Blanco River and comfortably seats 32 adults with plenty of space for additional seating, movement, catered meals, or for presentations and demonstrations.  We enjoy a pretty table, and think our guests should too.  Please see the "For our Guests" page along with our instagram link below for detailed pictures of all the many serving-ware, dinner-ware, and drink-ware pieces as well as kitchen accessories, appliances and utensils we provide.  

 

The guest house is attached to the main house by a short breezeway.  Inside the guest house is a living area with a fold out sofa, comfortable chairs, and bean bags for families to gather around the big screen or game table.  The guest house  kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, stove, fridge, toaster oven, coffee pot, and its own set of serving-ware, silverware, and dinnerware.  The guest house provides two spacious bedrooms.  Each room includes a king bed with a set of twin bunks, as well as its own private bathroom with a beautiful walk in shower.

Rental Options

Large Party Rentals

The entire property, main house and guest house, sleeps 30 - 32 people comfortably.   Your rental includes exclusive use of our amenities as well as all of the items detailed on the "For Our Guests" page.  We do offer discounts for guests interested in staying longer than 4 nights, please inquire for weekly and longer-term rates.  We do not offer cleaning services throughout your stay, but can make arrangements for cleaning and/or linen changes at an additional cost.   We do allow day guests; however, it must be discussed prior to confirming your reservation.  As common in the hill country, Blanco Valley lodge functions on a septic system, so we treat it carefully and are mindful of the number of guests at the property.  It's our priority to ensure each group is greeted with the same high level of care and quality.   We do not host weddings. 

Smaller Party Rentals

Depending on the time of of year and your length of stay, we do offer the option for smaller groups to rent just the main house.  Please inquire for rates and availability if your group includes 20 or less.  Please note, we do not rent the property out to more than one group at a time so that each group, large or small, enjoys exclusive use of our amenities including the hot tub, pool, fire-pit, river, etc.

Overnight Rentals

We understand pulling employees away for a business retreat or workshop is difficult.  During off-peak seasons we offer one-night rentals with flexible check in and check out times for groups with limited travel time.  Please inquire to set up a custom overnight retreat.
