    About this property

    'river Bungalow' On The Colorado River 2 Miles From Historic Bastrop, Texas

    The 'River Bungalow' lot is high on the bank with the best views from 3 giant decks overlooking the Colorado River. 2 miles from Downtown Bastrop Shops, Restaurants, Fisherman's Park, SUP/Kayaking/tubing, Riverwalk, & <35 minutes to Airport/Austin. River Bungalow's 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 (best on the decks overlooking the River)! River Bungalow is for couples, solo adventurers & business travelers wanting Class A ambiance! 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 can't 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'! The house and lot are yours to use and roam during your stay. The lot backs up to a steep slope to the river. There are 3 amazing tiered decks (climbing stairs necessary) to head towards the River. Access to the river is currently restricted from the bottom deck, until passage is a lot safer. We can talk about that. Bring the kayaks, however, as there is Fisherman's Park boat ramp less than 2 miles away. The garage is the owner's personal storage space. There is outside parking available for up to 2 cars. With up to 4 people staying, over 3 people is charged an additional fee. I also just want to be clear that some may find the bathroom arrangement a little less private than desired. Though off of the Master Bedroom, the bathroom doesn't have a separate door into the main house or into the 2nd bedroom. I just wanted you to be clear on that in case you change your mind. Otherwise, it is so totally worth staying there!!! The outside fencing, gates, decks and landscaping is still 'under construction' but should be further along when you stay. There is a train that ambles by every so often. I like it, but it may rumble a bit too loud for some. There is a crossing about 1/3 of a mile away, so you will possibly hear a horn. I just want to let you know, in case that isn't for you. Otherwise, it is fun to watch it go by, when you aren't watching the river roll. I'll be sending some driving directions etc to you, if you want to move forward. Please let me know if you have any special needs or requirements. I'll be happy to try to help you out. There is so much to do in the Bastrop area, and I'm sure you'll have a blast, and be comfortable at River Bungalow. It is a cool place. :-) I live 3 doors down from River Bungalow. If you need anything, all you need to do is text or call me. Even if it is a 'remote control' issue, I'll try to help! lol! We are river people! Rather eclectic neighborhood, but we share the love of the river. :-)

    Super Cute and Cozy!

    This property is even cuter in person. It's very cozy and everything was super easy to find. There was a note with instructions/rules/suggestions that was really helpful, the screened-in patio was a delight to relax on, and the decks were really cool. I'd be happy to stay here again. :)

    What an amazing house!!!! We thoroughly enjoy the accommodations and would travel to Bastrop again just to stay here. Highly recommended and so convenient to town. Thank you Thank you!!!

    5/5 Excellent

    We really enjoyed the stay. Even with 23 degree weather, it was great.

    This was the most charming, warm and friendly small house we have ever stayed at and we use VRBO 3 or 4 time a year. We would like to come back in the summer and see how the new decks over looking the Colorado River turnout. Thanks again for a great experience! Kent

    Our Happy Place

    Christmas in Texas would not have been the same without the River Bungalow. From the moment we walked in we were in love with this beautiful cabin. It is very clean, very quiet and very peaceful. Susan has done an amazing job with the choices and restoration. It is close to everything yet tucked away so that you feel like you are in a hide away for your stay. Very comfortable bed, super soft sheets and cozy blankets. Enjoyed an evening soak in the claw foot tub after a day of outdoor fun. Lovely way to start the day with morning coffee on the outside screened in porch by the river that you could hear running after the night’s rain. Pictures do not do this cabin justice it is very roomy and comfortable for two people. There is absolutely no comparison to staying in a hotel. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others. We loved watching the deer feed and rest just feet from the porch. Thank you Susan and Buddy we will be coming back! Blessings from Iowa ~ Robin & Mike

    Fun and eclectic!

    This house is really fun! Once the river access/deck is finished it will be amazing. Lots of extras to make your stay comfortable & the screened in porches were perfect!
