More About The River House:

Sleeps up to 15 people comfortably, and is ideal for reunions, retreats, workshops, conferences or seminars.  The River House is also great for a romantic getaway. 

Perfect for weddings.  We provide you with a list of local caterers, florists and photographers to help you plan your special day.  Family and friends can stay for the wedding then you can have the place to yourself for the honeymoon.  Exchange vows at sunset on the riverbank and have your reception in our pecan orchard.

We love dogs at the River House!  Canine members of the family are welcome as long as they are well behaved and housetrained.  We have a huge fenced yard, and the patio, deck and balcony are all enclosed so your pups will have plenty of room to run around and enjoy the great outdoors.

Smithville, “Heart of the Megalopolis” between Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Bryan/College Station, is just a short 45-minute drive from Austin, 15 minutes outside of Bastrop, and a little over two hours from Houston.  Private pilots can fly directly into Smithville Crawford Airport.


Rates begin at $175 per night, $1100 per week, double occupancy. There is a two-night minimum, and a charge of $20 per person for additional guests. Daily rentals may be available and will be charged at the same rate as a two-night stay. There is a three-night minimum requirement for holidays.

Canine guests are welcome with advance notice and an additional charge of $15.00 a day, per pup.
