About this property

Harmony House On The Beautiful Colorado River... Walk to Water Zen Retreat

Historic guesthouse in Bastrop
Located at one of the historical crossing points of the El Camino Real Trail on the Colorado River, Harmony House has much to offer! Harmony is a cozy relaxing retreat the space is 400 square feet lower section, and a 100 square foot loft upstairs. We have been told by many of our guest, this is the nicest booking they have ever made. 1 Queen bed lower level, 2 twin beds in the loft. A kitchenette with cook-top, microwave, coffee maker and fridge. There's even a large propane griddle in the shade on the upper patio! While the house is well designed and extremely nice, keep in mind that it is a cozy retreat. It will accommodate 4 people, however be aware that the loft area, with two twin beds, can be a bit tight for adults. That being said, many adults have slept there. TV with wireless connection allows you to access Netflix or Amazon Prime Video and Alexa will play your favorite tunes or play games. It's a beautiful meditative setting. There are many patios situated under huge trees, which makes for a very relaxing and calming atmosphere. Enjoy the many species of birds and the occasional Bald Eagle as they sing and call out to you. Our wifi extends over most of the property for you modern convenience types! Please keep in mind that this is a nature Sanctuary. I can promise that while we keep the place incredibly clean, you may see a centipede crawling on the floor or a dirt dabber flying in the cabin. Please enjoy the place for what it is, and enjoy nature in all its splendor. Enjoy the view of the river and grounds from your own balcony as you sip a favorite wine or beverage. We love and welcome dogs and they love interacting on our grounds, however, please take into consideration the size of our apartment when booking with larger or multiple dogs. They will get restless inside. Please take them outside frequently and let them enjoy the setting as well. (See House Rules for our pet guest) Fishing, swimming, kayaking are all popular here. Bring your own kayaks or rent them from local suppliers. From Fisherman's Park in Bastrop you can enjoy a 5.5 mile downstream float to our property. Whether a romantic getaway or family outing, we are sure that Harmony House will delight the nature lover inside and rejuvenate your soul! My greatest joy is having happy guest, please look over the photos before you book. Most come here for the meditative grounds and river setting. If you are looking for a huge sprawling home to lock yourself in for days on end, this is definitely not the place. Our sister property Upstairs at The RiverHouse is better suited for that. The grounds may be shared with myself or other guest. I cannot wait to share my sanctuary with you!

    Gorgeous location and helpful host!

    Andy went above and beyond to help us out during our stay. The location is even more beautiful in real life than the photos! I highly recommend staying here! Thank you again, Andy!

      It felt like ... home.

      The experience of this property was incredible from the beginning to the end with Andy loading my suitcase as we said goodbye. He has truly created an atmosphere of ... coming home. Temperatures were nearly 100 degrees the entire week I was in Texas yet the grounds were lush and green with so many trees and birds, it created the perfect atmosphere with breezes to blow away the heat from the day. From the house there is a walkway down the property to the Colorado river with beautiful flowering trees and plants where Andy has carved out individual and unique spaces for any personality. Mine took me to the bank of the river with a book and a drink reading until the sun was gone only to enjoy the evening moon and music of the night. My last day I decided to stick my foot in the river and as everyone but apparently me would expect, my flip flop came off so I jumped in to save it. But then spent the next glorious 90 minutes wading in the warm and slightly fast moving river and sitting on a log in the middle of it enjoying the incredible surroundings. I sent some pictures to a friend who said they didn't know Texas could be so pretty. The inside of the home was perfect for me. Like an A-Frame cabin with my own private porch to enjoy the mornings - one morning I spied Andy lovingly it seemed taking care of his property. Furnished with the perfect amenities, comfortable bedding and temperature, I had all I needed after long days at work to ready myself for the next day. The town of Bastrop has many delicious options for meals and enough stores to keep anyone happy and close enough to Austin for day trips. If you choose this place, if you allow yourself to quiet, you will leave refreshed and ready to take on the next thing life has in store for you. I can't wait to come back to enjoy the home, property, and conversation with Andy. For me it felt like homemade bread, warm chocolate chip cookies, fresh linen. Well, like going .... home.

      5/5 Excellent


        This property feels like its from a magazine. Very well maintained. Wonderful sitting areas with peaceful view. The home is small, but definitely more then adequate for weekend with two kids and dogs. And the property is so pretty I didn't want to stay inside anyway. Very well taken care of , very clean feeling home. Friendly owner. Definitely bring water shoes or sandals that can go into the water...rocky bottom. Hope to come back here!

          Bastrop Riverside Getaway

          Tucked away in a beautiful, nature filled corner in Bastrop alongside the Colorado River is the Harmony House. The property is spacious and welcoming as well as the house (more like a little cottage/tiny home). The living space was perfect for my girlfriend, her little doggy, and myself. It was so clean and cool (the A/C worked wonderfully in the Texas heat). We intended to get away from the city to relax and do nothing, and our stay was perfect. The bedding and furniture were so comfortable! There’s a decent amount of food and grocery nearby to grab anything you might need, and Austin is under an hour away if you want something more than you can find locally. Quick reminder: you are tucked away in nature alongside a river, which means you’ll have a good chance of seeing creatures and bugs, so don’t be surprised if you encounter them outside (or inside). The space is very clean, but bugs will be bugs! I’d highly recommend staying here and would be happy to return, Andy is very caring about his guests and was communicative and responsive with any questions we had. Thanks Andy!

            Peaceful and calm

            We spent our 35th wedding anniversary at Harmony House. We enjoyed everything about this lovely property. Waking up early to drink coffee on the balcony, relaxing on the steps by the river, grilling on the patio.... Andy was very friendly and gracious! He was the perfect host and we enjoyed our visit with him. We are looking forward to a return stay in the future!
