Straddle your old saddle underneath the western skies in Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World. This Texas "Hill Country" retreat sits on a high bluff above the Medina River. A refreshing waterfall pool creates an oasis atmosphere while you sunbathe and swim. Rustic log architecture and plush award-winning interiors will pamper your vacation life-style. Prepare your steaks and tamales on the Texas-sized barbecue. An adult pool cascades into the children's pool alongside a heated whirlpool… just the thing after a stretch in the saddle. There's also volleyball, horseshoes, and room for a scrub softball game. Everything is big in Texas, including your Southwest designed condominium. You'll find Jacuzzi tubs in most units, fireplaces, and full kitchens equipped with microwaves and Jennair Ranges. Each unit offers laundry facilities, telephone, TV/VCR, and free movies available for checkout. One bedroom for four and two bedroom for six is available. Enjoy year-round, Texas-sized fun. Take to the water with a tube or canoe on the Medina River, or angling for bass on nearby lakes and streams. Fall brings cool nights and the deep shades of crimson and gold to the hillsides. In the winter, wild turkey, whitetail deer, and wild boar entice the hunter.
Another beautiful resort is Perennial Vacation Club at Bandera. The Texas Hill Country surrounds the Cowboy Capital of the World and is home to World Class/Bandera Homestead. Amenities such as outdoor pools, hot tub, and unit whirlpools add a modern flavor to the resort. For a taste of cowboy life, you can see the sights on horseback at one of the area dude ranches. Nearby San Antonio, with its historic sites and beautiful River Walk, makes a great side trip.
