The 'River Bungalow' lot is high on the bank with views of the Colorado River & is 2 miles from Downtown Bastrop Shops, Restaurants, SUP/Kayaking/tubing, Riverwalk, & 35 minutes to Airport/Austin. The interior is finished w/ salvaged farmhouse finds, industrial shiny fixtures, a chef kitchen & roomy bath w/ claw foot tub & washer/dryer! 2 big screened-in porches for your bug-free enjoyment or yoga! River Bungalow is for couples, solo adventurers & business travelers wanting Class A ambiance!

The space
The hope is that this is a River Bungalow of rest, fun, adventure, rejuvenation, and/or romance for you! It was over a year for my contractor to remodel with a lot of passion and talent in the details. I salvaged old 1800's farm houses and mixed it with modern design. There is big style in the small footprint! It is super comfy with spray foam insulation everywhere you cant see, and central heat/air. After the gutters went up, it was 'time to put it up for a short term rental', so everyone could enjoy it. So, 'ENJOY'!

Guest access
The house and lot are yours to use and roam during your stay. The flat, high and dry, lot backs up to a steep slope to the river. There are 3 giant amazing decks with great sunset and river views that are cantilevered out from the lot towards the river (lots of steps down to each deck level). The top deck also has nice views and no steps down to get to it.
Access to the river takes a little hiking off of the bottom deck. We will be working on the trail down, eventually. Fair weather, slow, low river times are great for swimming off the boulders. Absolutely NO jumping or diving in as they are everywhere under the water's surface and potentially dangerous.
Getting a kayak down the hill from the steep decks is not recommended. Bring the kayaks, however, as there is Fisherman's Park boat ramp less than 2 miles away.
Parking FYI- Please pull through the gate and park in front of the garage. The garage is the owner's personal storage space. There is outside parking available for up to 2 cars.

Other things to note
The maximum head count that can stay at River Bungalow is 4. We are on septic, as we are in the country.
There is a King and Full bed.
Price INCLUDES Hotel Occupancy Taxes.
The washer & dryer are for your use.
There is a large coffee maker and coffee. If you need instructions on how to operate anything, please let me know.
The house has 2 smart TV's. I'm not an expert with those things, but there is some TV programming available, and if you have a Netflix account etc., your set.
The house is outfitted with a super great propane tankless water heater. Fill that clawfoot tub and stay there until you prune, if you'd like!

Bastrop, Texas, United States

We are river people! Rather eclectic neighborhood, but we share the love of the river.
Back towards town, enjoy the houses and streets of old Bastrop. The holidays are exceptionally festive times to visit. Be sure to go to the Museum and Fine Arts Guild on Chestnut Street, close to Main Street.
Bastrop has a wonderful choice of restaurants downtown. Enjoy the nightlife, live music on the weekends. Get breakfast at Texas' Monthly's highlighted Maxine's on Main Street. Great for breakfast and homestyle cooking!
Shop until your heart's content!
Forgot the wine? Oh no! Cripple Creek and Company and Colorado Winery can fix you up with a great bottle, or so! They are on Chestnut St and Main Street.
HEB grocery store is very close if you want (of course you will) the refrigerator and pantry space.
If you need ANYTHING grocery on the go - go to Tracey's on the corner of Main and Cedar Street. They amazingly have a lot of stuff. You probably took Cedar St to get to the River Bungalow.

I love Bastrop and the Colorado River! Everyday, I am blessed that I get to look out at it and see it change, more frequently than you'd think. It is always moving and ever in transition. Being out on it is the only thing better! I am a wine snob, I think. LOL I like a lot of wines and am easily amused by them. I will generally trend towards dry, earthy, non-fruit forward reds. You'll be able to tell that I like wine, staying as a guest at River Bungalow. I'm a Real Estate Broker, so my world is very much about dirt. I love it and helping my people accomplish their current realty goals. I'm mostly an action/adventure movie kind of girl, but I do like a good story and a romance :-). Schulman 8 Lost Pines is a great theatre to see a picture show. There are some movie DVD's at River Bungalow. There are lots of music venue opportunities in the Bastrop area. I tend to like some blues and guitar pickin'. Food! I love most food types. If you have a hankering, let me know, as I have probably eaten everywhere in Bastrop. Yes, Domino's Pizza delivers to River Bungalow! Be sure to check out my recommendations page.
