RiversEdge is a pet friendly zen inspired retreat located on a beautiful stretch of The Colorado River in Bastrop Tx. Featuring a 2400 sq ft, fully remodeled open concept mid-century 4 bedroom 2 bath house which sleeps 8, has an outdoor grilling and dining pavilion and walk to river access. There’s even an air-conditioned sunroom, which overlooks the river and grounds. 

Lose yourself on our grounds featuring huge shade trees, 4 zen hammocks, which are positioned perfect for that afternoon nap and enjoy the sounds of nature which abound here. You’ll find it hard to believe you’re only 2 miles from downtown Bastrop.

While the house is private, grounds may be shared from time to time with guests from our sister property RiverNook, located on the same grounds. However, the grounds are large with ample patios and spaces for all.

The property is truly Zen Central with access to the river where water activities, swimming, fishing, tubing and kayaking are popular. We provide 4 kayaks and a Canoe to explore the river from the property. It is the perfect Zencation spot! We are also just minutes away from two incredible State Parks with awesome hiking and bird viewing!

We love having well behaved pets explore the grounds with their families. We do have a $75.00 per pet per stay fee that helps keep us pet friendly. The maximum number of pets for this property is 4. Emotional Support Animals are not service animals and will be charged the fee. If you did not include and pay for your pets in the reservation, please inform us of the number of pets joining you during your stay, we can bill your card or you can leave it with us before you leave. (Please see house rules for pets)

We have a feeling, like so many others over the years; you'll fall in love with RiversEdge and refer your friends and family to visit. Come sit for a spell and find your new happy place!

The Space

You’ll enjoy amenities such as a full kitchen and dining area, Wi-Fi, Smart TV’s, washer/dryer, central heat/air, an air-conditioned sunroom with panoramic views of the river and grounds.

The Master bedroom features a King size bed, Double doors that open onto an air-conditioned sunroom and a huge walk in double shower which is a guests favorite.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 feature queen size beds and the fourth bedroom has a double pull out day bed.

The house is perfect for entertaining, with its open concept design there is room for large gatherings. Family reunions, class reunions and weddings have all been held here.

Whether you're planning a romantic getaway, a multi-family gathering, reunion or corporate retreat, RiverEdge will be perfect for your getaway or Zencation.

While a 2-night stay is possible, the vast majority of our guests have told us they wished they had booked an additional night. If a 3-night stay is possible on your end, we recommend booking at least 3 days as it is rarely possible to add a day at the last minute. 

Should you need to house a couple more guests, you can rent our garage apartment, RiverNook located on the same grounds or The RiverHouse, sleeps 8 and Harmony House, sleeps 4, which are just down the road, if they are available.

We also offer The Serenity Kayak Experience, The Serenity Hiking Experience as well as tube and Canoe rentals. The Experiences are great ways to explore our beautiful river and forests with me as your guide, or our rental packages if you prefer to explore on your own... Just message us for more details!

The Neighborhood

We are located in a quiet eclectic neighborhood bordering the Colorado River. About two miles from Historic Downtown Bastrop, which offers amazing pre-turn of the century architecture, quaint shops and food galore…

You may see us while tending the grounds or gardens, just say hi and we'll introduce ourselves. We do give our guest privacy but we love to entertain and chat if you are so inclined

We can't wait to share our Sanctuary with you!


You will have access to the house, grounds, kayak ramp, swim deck, river, lighted fishing dock, 4 kayaks and a Canoe to launch from the property. Additional kayaks tubes and canoes can be rented from us if needed.

Other things to note

The occupancy listed is the max occupancy this property can accommodate. If you intend to host any event, celebration or other function, you will need to disclose this to us in advance and obtain approval, including an agreement to all additional fees and terms.

We strongly advise trip insurance to cover your booking and will provide any documentation you may need to facilitate your claim. Our cancelation policy will be adhered to at all times during your reservation. We do not refund reservations outside of our cancelation policy. Unlike hotels who typically overbook reservations, we do not have that option. We have blocked off the property from all advertising once you booked it and typically have a hard time re-booking on short notice. If you do cancel outside of our policy, we will do our best to rebook the property and will send you any funds we collect to offset your losses. These funds may be less than you originally paid.

As mentioned above, while the house is private, grounds may be shared from time to time with guests from our sister property RiverNook, located on the same grounds. However, the grounds are large with ample patios and spaces for all.

Your circle driveway parking is limited to 5 cars. Do not block the garage or drive!

Other Policies to Note...
We are in the hospitality business and work hard to provide clean, comfortable accommodations at a very reasonable rate for the properties we offer as attested by hundreds of 5 star reviews at our properties. Should you have any issues we are only a message away and typically can be to the property in 15-30 minutes. If you have a situation that we can help with, we will be there and most likely have replacements for common items.

We do not discount or refund for light bulbs, coffee makers, or any electrical appliance going out as they do not give advance notice that they are going out. We do not offer refunds or discounts because you saw a bug, mosquito, spider, lizard, gecko, snake, armadillo, squirrel, rabbits, deer, turkeys or flying insects. This is a river front property in a tropical environment and they live here. We use a pest control company and spray indoors regularly for pest. If doors are open for any length of time they will find their way inside the house. Keep the doors closed. We do not offer discounts or refunds for feelings, premonitions, thoughts, wants, opinions, dislikes, medical emergencies, death in family as well as any early departures unless it is a County or State issued mandatory evacuation which includes the address of the property and then only for nights not used. We provide in advance pictures of the property on the listing site, which are true to each property, not doctored, and many reviews state the property is better than the pictures we provide. We use professional cleaners and linen services. We take pictures of the property immediately after it is cleaned and hold those pictures for our protection. Likewise we take photos immediately after your stay. We stock the property with ample towels and wash cloths and a starter supply of soaps, shampoos and toilet paper for the size of the property. If you run out of soap, toilet paper, shampoo, message us. If you have booked a property that does not have a washer and dryer, you can use one of the local laundry mats to wash them or message us to discuss additional linens and the fee for that service.
We do not have a bug problem, we do not have an unsafe neighborhood problem, we do not have a cleaning problem. We have never had bed bugs but we preventively treat for them, have encased mattresses and the likelihood of you finding said bug is practically zero. We do not barter discounts for alleged sightings of them or for promises of 5 star reviews for said discounts, and will immediately report such language to The Hosting Platform. If you have any situation we need to address, message us on the platform and we can typically be there within 15-30 minutes. Reporting after the stay, or not reporting the situation to us first, in an attempt to garnish a free or discounted stay, will be considered fraud. Should you attempt to cause us harm by reporting any misleading information to the Hosting Platform without first reporting this information to us, allowing us access to see said situation, document it, attempt to rectify it, and that information causes the Hosting Platform to suspend any or all of our listings, we will seek legal remedies against you for any and all lost revenues, cancelled reservations, time and money spent rectifying the situation with the Hosting Platform, court and legal cost and any other damages recommended by our council.
If you are the typical person wanting to enjoy a wonderful vacation at our properties we apologize that you had to read a disclosure primarily meant for the growing numbers of scammers out there.
