Where you’ll be

Lakehills, Texas, United States

We are located in the Lakehills/Pipe Creek area of Texas.
Nestled in the most remote portion of the Medina River Ranch this property is right next to the 15 ac HOA park.

- 10 miles to the Lake Medina Park
- 17 miles East of quaint and historic Bandera, Texas
- 23 miles West of the vibrant Boerne, Texas
- 44 miles Northwest of San Antonio
- 60 miles South of Fredericksburg
-116 miles Southwest of Austin, TX

We have always dreamed of hosting a place for families and friends to come and enjoy nature but we would have never dreamed of finding a property as unique and beautiful as this. A lake when the water is high, a beautiful river when the waters low. All crowned by a majestic limestone bluff, complete with cave and endless room for adventures.
This land was once a part of a wagon trail along the river and you can still find arrowheads along the paths, if you're lucky.

** What to know **
We seek to provide a 5 star experience for each guest and a major part of that is full transparency into what you're booking.

We do everything in our power to ensure a peaceful and relaxing environment at Sparrow Bend, and it is just that 99% of the time, but there are occasionally factors outside our control such as neighbor's music or neighborhood dogs barking.

On occasion, folks along the river will play music and it can be a nuisance. If you happen to be there on one of those days, please let us know as soon as possible so we can reach out to resolve the situation as best we can. At the end of the day it is a river/lake property, as well as outside an city ordinances, so our hands are tied to a certain degree, but we will do everything in our power to resolve the issue.
