This is a spacious house on Main Street in the historic town of Fentress. It has a big, peaceful back deck overlooking a grassy meadow with majestic pecan trees, a picnic table, and fire pit. There's a short walking path to a private, forested hangout spot on the San Marcos River. This is the perfect retreat for bird watchers, photographers, nature lovers, friends and families looking for short-term getaways, and anyone who appreciates wild places and wandering off the beaten path.


This house has a lot of space and natural light. There's a big living room area in the front, a big game room/dining room in the back, a full kitchen with an industrial 6-burner stove, and a large back deck. As for layout/sleeping arrangements, there are four bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom. Downstairs there's a master bedroom with its own bathroom. The downstairs bathroom can also be accessed via a separate door in the kitchen. The backyard is big and spacious, with plenty of space for outdoor games, grilling, and lounging.

To be clear, the forested path to the water is grassy and unpaved, and the water access is a bit rough at the moment (just a ladder going into the water). There's no beach area for wading, but it's a fine place for taking a dip or floating down the river. If you're looking for a manicured and well-maintained waterfront property, this is probably not the place for you. If you're into nature, you will certainly agree that this is a magical place! It's quiet and peaceful and wild.

Tilgang for gjester

Guests have full access to the entire house, backyard, back deck, and private riverfront hangout area. We have a few tubes that can be borrowed for floating the river (if you need more, you can buy them at the corner store or rent them from Don's Fishcamp). Kitchen will be stocked with cooking oil, some basic spices, tea, and coffee. We also have a charcoal grill outside (you supply your own charcoal and lighter fluid).

Interaksjon med Gjester

This property is co-managed by the property owners and their close friends who live nearby. Someone will be on site to greet you when you arrive, answer any questions, and make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The riverfront hangout area is shared with the property owners and a long-term tenant staying at another property a few houses down, but you’ll most likely have the water all to yourself.

Andre ting å merke seg

PLEASE READ our listing in its entirety and our guest rules to make sure this is a good fit for you before sending your request. Also if you're new to Airbnb, this is important reading as well.

We only host guests who have a complete profile and are willing to write us a thoughtful request explaining the purpose of their visit and how many people will be accompanying them. We don’t have strict rules as to how many people can stay and we're perfectly fine with people bringing air mattresses if there aren't enough beds – just let us know in your request what your plan is.

Dogs are allowed on a case by case basis (please check with us first) and they are not allowed inside the house under any circumstances. There is a large fenced-in area attached to the house that well-behaved dogs can be in. Please bring your own doggie bags, clean up after your dogs, and be aware of Caldwell County's leash law.

While the house is clean and well-maintained, be warned that this is the country. We live on rough land that's inhabited by wildlife such as deer, raccoons, owls, bats, and bugs. Enjoy the beauty of nature, but also be aware of your surroundings at all times. Keep little ones nearby, and be mindful of where you walk outside and sit due to stumps, rocks, and holes. Snake and scorpion sightings are rare but do happen. There is also poison ivy to watch out for (we can point it out to you so you know what it looks like).

This place is for everyone who loves or want to experience a rustic, antique and traditional place in the country side. Staying here let us enjoy nature and peaceful moment , which are both rare in our city life. The house is a little bit aged , which is expected , but it is what we are looking for. Overall, me and my guests are happy with this place.

Dian was great from the start. I had a party of 7 that had all kinds of questions about the place and every single one of them was answered. The place actually exceeded my expectations. So spacious and plenty of room for guests to sleep. I like to cook so having a griddle to cook on was a plus for me. Location is just secluded enough to keep us from the "hustle and bustle" but close enough for us to travel to buy supplies. Overall great experience! Highly recommend this for a nice little weekend getaway! Thanks!

My family stayed here for a family reunion in a nearby town. We all were able to stay in one location and enjoy each other for the entire weekend. This will definitely be the place for us to stay next time we come visit or attend the family reunion again.. The home was quaint and housed all of us comfortably. The bed my husband and I slept in wad way more comfortable than some hotels we've stayed in. Cristen was so nice. She answered all my questions and got back to me in a very timely manner. The only thing I didn't like or wished was different was, that I had more time to cook on that fabulous cooktop grill.

Tilbakemelding fra Dian:
I'm sorry you were disappointed with the river access. I tried my best to accurately describe the access in the listing and include photos of the ladder going into the water so renters know what it is like before they arrive. From my listing: "To be clear, the forested path to the water is grassy and unpaved, and the water access is a bit rough at the moment (just a ladder going into the water). There's no beach area for wading, but it's a fine place for easing your way in for a dip or floating down the river. If you're looking for a manicured and well-maintained waterfront property, this is probably not the place for you. If you're into nature, you will certainly agree that this is a magical place! It's quiet and peaceful and wild.") Thank you so much for your feedback, though. Improving the river access so it isn't quite so primitive is definitely a project we intend to work on. Thanks for staying at our guesthouse. I'm glad you had a good time overall!

This house is amazing! Tons of space, plenty of rooms. The location is top notch as well, right on the river, great for a float. We all had such a great time here and will definitely book this house again next time we're down. Thank you so much!

House is amazing. It's a Hidden Gem. River access no problem for my 6yr old to get in. Quiet area. Very private. Had the river to ourselves for a couple days. Perfect for large groups. Host response is great. Definitely stay here again.
