“Restful Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

River View is a lovely stone house built in 1939 that has retained many of its original features. The back yard is adjacent to a quiet little state park along the Blanco River. You can swim or fish in the river just out the back gate. (Park fees are minimal)
Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair here. The host provides juice, coffee and tea as well as pancake mix and dry cereal. While here, we made a trip to the grocery store and bought stuff to make lunches and dinners in the well equipped kitchen, thus saving money on meals.
Beds were very comfortable (2 queens, 1 king and a queen aerobed) and the living areas were large and well furnished. We spent a good deal of time out on the sun porch visiting and playing games.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at the River View B & B. The house was ours for the weekend and we felt completely at home. Elizabeth provides everything any guest could want. The fully stocked kitchen has a huge granite topped island that makes food prep or entertaining easy. The rooms are filled with antiques and comfortable sofas and chairs abound. The bed and bath linens are top quality. It has a fenced in yard which opens directly into the state park. My favorite room has to be the sun room. I started each morning with a cup of coffee relaxing in a huge wicker chair, watching a heron, geese, the squirrels, and people walking along the beautiful river. Our daughter was married in the Old Blanco County Courthouse and River View B & B is only about 2 blocks from the courthouse which made it very easy to go back & forth through the week to relax, and for her bridesmaids to gather on the day of the wedding. We loved it & hope to return soon.
