Smithville Vacation Home Rental

Come relax at the River House, our beautiful two-story cabin with breathtaking views of the river.  This tranquil getaway is located on the banks of the Colorado, just minutes from historic downtown Smithville, Texas. 

The River House

After you’ve napped on the deck, walk down through our small pecan orchard and enjoy private access to the river.  Fish from the banks, or wade in and go swimming, tubing, kayaking or canoeing.  In the evening, you’ll have a front row seat for our lovely Texas sunsets and starry nights.

For a change of pace, stroll down Main Street and check out all the wonderful antique shops and restaurants nearby. 

Many films are shot in Smithville, including Sandra Bullock’s Hope Floats, as well as the upcoming film, Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.  Take a tour of all the featured locations throughout town, then come home and browse through our extensive video library.

The River House is also a great destination for birdwatchers.  Come discover the many species of birds that live on the banks of the Colorado.  If you’re there at the right time of year, you’ll even see our family of bald eagles!



During your stay you'll enjoy the best of both worlds - peaceful, easy country living with all the modern conveniences. This spacious, four-bedroom, two-bath house has all the comforts of home, including WiFi and HD TV. We also have a sunny study upstairs with it's own private balcony. On display throughout the house you'll find a beautiful gallery of photographs, paintings and lithographs, all created by Texas artists.
