Clean, comfortable, and friendly. Little cottage that suited us well. Sit back and relax on the front porch or walk across the road to sit by the river. Getting sick of TripAdvisor wanting me to write more and more info. No more reviews from us TripAdvisor.

We and another couple did a short road trip with Bandera and the RFM as our stop. REALLY enjoyed ourselves as this is such a different and unique property. The cabins look very "rustic" from the outside but are quite nice inside. Our cabin (#1) had one of the most comfy beds and pillows ever. Close to everything including the Medina river. At night lots of deer dropped by as we sat on the porch. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for two nights great location. Tracey was really friendly and helpful. The room is really big and had everything we needed. Really good WiFi. Loved the stay would stay again when in the area so easy to walk along the river and the high street.

I arrived at the property an hour early for check-in. The room was not done. I returned in an hour and the beds were not made or towels in the room. The mattresses are very old and questionable. I love the location and the room is ok for spending a day at the river. I am dissatisfied with the way the owner handled the situation. She brought me the sheets which I had no problem putting on myself but then said she would discount my room for the night for the inconvenience and never did. Bad communication and false promises are not good business practices. Thanks anyway!

I accidentally found this charming motel comprised of 11 stand-alone cabins in Bandera, Texas. Lucky for me, cabin 4 was available for the night so I grabbed it. Hyper-clean room with a charming furniture lay-out. Even had a kitchenette, which I wasn’t expecting and was easy walking distance to dining and bars in Bandera. I had double-knee replacement four months prior to my visit so “walking-distance” is a serious claim. Great place to stay for a night (or a year!).
