Bright Star on the Frio is an eclectic, super cool lodge situated high on a bluff overlooking the water, 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 high drama! The interior was professionally designed by D’Ette Cole Design and clearly you are overwhelmed by a sense of place, with serious folly and true laid back style. 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 owners personally painted artwork, fun record player and other memorabilia treasures. Although the style is exceptionally chic, the result is super comfortable and laid back relaxed. In the living room leather sofas mixed with colorful pillows, mood lighting that creates ambience for romantic evenings, yet functional enough for the kids to play checkers.
Every room is completed outfitted with color coordinated linens for your stay, from designer sheets, plus bath towels, a wide range of spices and an old fashion record player to get the whole family singing & dancing the night away.
Inside the spacious bunk room that overlooks the river, the deep green walls make the room cool and cozy, with wood floors and funky work lights that hang over the beds. On the wall is a fun mural of paint-by-number art work next to deer antlers and wicker baskets sit next to a pile of classic children's books. Heavy drama is performed by the stately platform beds, while the cast iron twin bed is piled high with a cast of different pillows. This is the room everyone will want to cocoon in.
The second bedroom is more intimate, yet eye catching with patterns, artwork and layered bedding. The operative word is color: vivid red, pink, grey and white flow effortlessly between the two queen platform beds, with a quaint rocking chair next to a speed limit sign and huge bullseye, hotdog and abstract cowboy all hung as artwork on the wall. A white oval mirror hangs above a turquoise table with a pink 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 such with a cactus pattern shower curtain in front of a natural stone shower
Down the wood floor hall you come to the main attraction: the luxurious master bedroom. Vaulted ceilings, high staged windows for light yet provides privacy, the room is an ahh moment. Step into a glamorous sleeping space that is over the top. Cool seating is designed with maps of the world, while a cowboy hat hangs high over a tall branch with accent lighting. Pillows on top of layers of neutral black, white and cream bedding.
There is an exterior door leading from the master bedroom to the covered back porch and river. This is a covered concrete patio with a second refrigerator, stylish seating 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, paddling a canoe, playing thetherball, 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, 1 with a wood burning chiminea overlooking the river.
Down another set a concrete stairs leads to a concrete landing next to massive oak trees along the Frio River with a concrete edge along the riverbank. There is also a rope swing to drop into the cool, clear Frio. Another set of lounge chairs are alongside the river.
The lodge sets below the Frio Valley mountain range to the front, while the property to the back runs across the Frio River all the way to another mountainside. Clearly there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out, relax and enjoy this very special river lodge.
