Bluebird Hill has everything needed for an adventurous and relaxing vacation! The beautiful free-form swimming pool with a waterfall will relax your stresses away. This property is on Blanket Creek, which is seasonal (dependent on yearly rainfall) when it's running is great for wading and catching tadpoles.
This home is sitting on Indian Blanket Ranch, a 250 acre ranch, which has Bluebird Nestbox Nature Trails for bird watching, hiking, jogging, and mountain bicycling. There are six benches spread out on the ranch for viewing wildlife and nature photography. Relax in the hammock, hot tub, or pool, after a fulfilling day of hiking or cycling the trails.
It is located 10 miles west of Utopia, Texas and five minutes east of Garner State Park and the Frio River. 25 minutes SW of Lost Maples State Natural Area. This property is close enough for tubing and river fun, yet far enough away for seclusion & privacy.

Hi LeAnn, First of all, I just wanted to say that we had another wonderful time at Bluebird Hill. Your mother's house is fascinating, filled with such character and life. One of our women wanted to write a letter to her expressing that sentiment. If you think she would appreciate it, please do let us know, and we would love to write such a communication to her, thanking her for creating such a beautiful place. In the meantime, we wanted to let you know that we appreciate you offering this wonderfully private getaway where we can escape to! Kimberlyn: San Antonio, TX
