*This house is located in Montell Tx which is 30 minutes from Uvalde, 10 from Campwood, and about 2 hours to San Antonio. In this area AT&T cell service works well, I have been told Verizon doesn't, so you might want to check about service in the area before you come if you don't have AT&T.

    Our adult kids enjoyed the river which was great, we went there to float the Frio and we did drive to Concan to do that on Friday but they said the river was only running 40 to 50% so we were gonna have to walk half the float so we went to Gardner which the day pass was all booked so we renting a camping spot so we could float the river… and it was ok but we all agreed we were just gonna go back to your house and play in that river the rest of the time and that is what we did they all enjoyed it… my husband and I have never been to the frio so we were relying on our kids to show us where we needed to go since all three of them have been several times lol well that did not go so well oh well… your place was great and they were content just staying there…

    We booked the Dragonfly for our family trip. It was our first time on the Nueces, though we are native Texans, and fell in love with the views and crystal clear waters. The pictures don’t do this place justice. Nathan was very kind and hospitable.

    Great place for a getaway!

    We stayed with another family so there were 8 total and we had such a great time. The house along with the small guest house gave everyone lots of space. The house was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, and cookware. It was comfortable and relaxing and the location on the river is perfect. Be aware that there are 2 other houses on the property, one that is right next door to the Dragonfly house, so you may be sharing the river with other people if both houses are booked at the same time. But really, who cares! We met our neighbors and they were all very nice and considerate and sharing isn't a bad thing. It sure beats being on the Frio where the sharing is with a whole lot more people. Overall, the trip was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here!

    This place is paradise! The abundance of wildlife was amazing to see. The location of the Nueces River in proximity to the house was the best! Will deff think about staying here again. Only downside was there was no AC upstairs and the teens were very hot so they ended up sleeping on the floor in the livingroom. Other than that one single issue....the house and property was perfect.

    Heaven on the Nueces

    My 24 yr old daughter and new husband, who live in N. Carolina, came back to visit us in Houston after several years. Her husband had never been to Texas and I didn’t want him to leave thinking Houston was representative of ‘Texas’, so I rented this cabin on the Nueces to expose him to some Hill Country beauty. I’ve been coming to this part of the Nueces for many years - my favorite rental location in the ‘Frio River Area’. The cabin and amenities are flawless and provide all amenities anyone could ask for. Nathan, the (almost) on-site property manager is always inviting and truly seeks to be helpful in any manor possible. Awesome place to stay for those who want easy access to Frio River activities, but prefer something more private and serene than the crowds in the Leaky/Concan corridor. Highly recommended.

    This property was great for all ages. Easy access to the river but there is a few stairs. There is a lot of trees for shade and a large area for outside games and kids to play. We enjoyed the fire pit and the property owners left us everything to make smores. We would definitely stay here again!

    Amazing vacation with our family of 7! Beautiful location....The pictures posted on the site DONT give this place justice. The property was very clean, new, and and very comfortable. It was definitely family friendly. We spent most of our time by the water and on the porch. My kids had a blast playing outside all day and my husband and I enjoyed the cozy fire pit at nights. Owners and property manager were quick to respond and very friendly. We will definitely be back at our next vacation!
