Bright Star on the Frio is a super cool luxury Lodge, with exceptional private Frio River frontage. For those searching for an extra ordinary vacation home on the river, Bright Star is clearly a winner. This home is dramatic so why do ordinary? Share in the wonder of floating the Frio River from your private Lodge or use the kayak to explore the Frio River!
Live the alfresco life on the patio overlooking the river. Private riverfront has a concrete landing, riverside patio & party lights for night-time ambience. You can explore the other side of the Frio River up to the mountain. This is serious fun!
You'll love the result of the professionally designed interior by D’Ette Cole Design and upon entering, you are immediately overwhelmed by a sense of place. A serious folly and true laid-back style of layered artwork and decor. Although many of the owners personal possessions are precious, they don’t take their collections so serious that you can’t enjoy them as well.
Look around at the artwork, old fashioned record player and other treasures. Although the style is chic, the result is super comfortable and relaxing. The living room leather sofas have mood lighting for romantic evenings, yet is functional enough for the kids to play checkers.
Every room is completed outfitted with color coordinated linens for your stay, with complementary designer sheets and plush bath towels. In the kitchen you'll find a wide range of spices, wifi and wall of windows overlooking the river.
The spacious bunk room overlooks the river, with deep green walls that make the room feel cool and cozy. Wood floors and funky work lighting fixtures hang over each bed, while the walls have deer antler decor. Wicker baskets hold a pile of classic children's books. There are solid, matching platform beds, while a corner cast iron twin bed is piled high with pillows. This is the room everyone will want to cocoon in.
The second bedroom is more intimate, with artwork and layered, matching bedding. There are (2) queen platform beds, a quaint rocking chair and walls have super fun cowboy decor and speed limit sign. A white oval mirror hangs above a turquoise table with a cowboy boot light. Large and spacious, this room is sure to delight.
The first bathroom has tile floor, pedestal sink, high impact lighting, lots of storage, toiletries such ads hairdryer, cotton balls and other vanity staples, with a cactus designer shower curtain in front of a natural stone shower.
Down the halls wood floors you come to the main attraction: the luxurious master bedroom. Vaulted ceilings, high staged windows for light yet provides ultimate privacy, the room is an ahh moment. Step into a glamorous sleeping space that is over the top, with cool seating, wall maps of the world, while a cowboy hat hangs high over a tall branch that provides accent lighting. Pillows on top of more pillows add layers of neutral black, white and cream bedding.
There is an exterior door leading from the master bedroom to the covered, screened in back porch and river. This covered screened has lots of stylish seating, a second refrigerator and lots of fun wall signs lit with warm party lights. Just off the patio is a custom double designed picnic table, lounge chairs surrounding a fire pit and hammock.
The whole family will enjoy corn hole, playing tetherball, horseshoes or a game of volleyball for ultimate playtime. Walk down a few steps to the concrete balcony overlooking the river with 2 outdoor seating areas of tables & chairs plus a wood burning chiminea overlooking the river.
Hanging outside is serious fun. Stairs lead to a concrete riverbank landing next to massive oak trees along the Frio River. Dive into the fresh, clear Frio River right in your own backyard! There's also another set of lounge chairs alongside the rivers edge.
The lodge sits below the Frio Valley mountain range to the front, while the property backyard is the Frio River! Plenty of parking, lots of room for everyone to spread out, relax and enjoy this is a very special hideaway.
"Beautiful house right on the river! We loved our stay and look forward to coming back!"
"We all had a great time!!"
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay 6/5-6/8! We celebrated my husband‘s (Larry) 65th birthday. My 2 children Noel & Jennifer joined us with their family-Noel, his wife,Briana and three boys & Jen and son, Beckham(her husband couldn’t come). My daughter a Nurse practitioner is pregnant and concerned about the Covid thing. You provided us with a stress free & covid friendly check in! Thank you. You and your Frio Team allowed us to feel safe. We arrived, and enjoyed privacy with our family in your cute, eclectic & child friendly home. After 3 months of isolation, my family ( San Antonio, Austin and Lubbock) were able to reconnect, and enjoy each other without concern or apprehension of others. I love your home and its ammineties!"

" Beautiful! What can I say abou this place, it is just breathtaking. The home is just as it is featured in the website. Decorated very tastefully and welcoming. The river was so inviting, the perfect natural pool just a few steps down. Just the perfect dept for kids and a few steps in either direction was deep enough for adults. It was fully stocked with everything you could need for cooking and fun. Booking was bit challenging and now we know why. We couldn't have asked for a more great place. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back next summer! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of this wonderful place!" Alicia M
