Bright Star on the Frio is a super cool 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 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 artwork, record player and other treasures. Although the style is chic, the result is super comfortable and laid back relaxed. In the living room leather sofas has 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, with designer sheets, 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 are deer antlers, while wicker baskets hold a pile of classic children's books. There are stately platform beds, while the 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 bedding. The two queen platform beds are next to a quaint rocking chair, next to a speed limit sign. Cowboy artwork is hung 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.
Stairs lead to a concrete riverbank landing next to massive oak trees along the Frio River. 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 across the river to the bottom of the mountainside. Clearly there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out, relax and enjoy this is a very special river lodge.
"The property on the river was wonderful and very nice! We had everything we needed. The management company was great and took care of any concerns right away! Thanks!"
"What can I say about 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!"
"Great place to enjoy the river with family and friends."
"Just awesome!!! Fun and relaxing!!!"
