This was our second stay at BB lodge and it was wonderful. Everything you need for a relaxing stay in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

Comfy, “back to basics” family get away roomy old home!

The pool area is amazing! We loved the cool screened in porch and back patio. The kitchen and dining area was large and comfortable. Living room was nice. King size bedroom was great. Cowboy bedroom was small but very comfortable. Twin size bedroom is way smaller than it looks in the photos. I would recommend replacing the twin bed in this room with a large futon so the room accommodates two people. The upstairs loft is great for kids/teens.
Needs improvement:
We were not able to check in until almost 5:00 because housekeeping was not finished with cleaning.
Trash bags need to be provided.
The pool light needs to be fixed. We were unable to swim after 9:00 because it was dark.
Manager response:
Hi, Sandra! We're glad you stayed with us and would like to sincerely apologize for the late clean due to the large mess left behind by the previous guest. Staff worked diligently to get everything properly cleaned up as quickly as possible. The homeowner is aware of the pool lights so they can consider replacement. Thank you!

The pool was the focal point! We loved gathering around the huge kitchen table for meals. Star gazing on the upper deck was an unexpected treat. The facilities were wonderful and we loved the porches everywhere! Highly recommend 👍🏻👍🏻💖😄

This rustic rental is awesome. It is perfect for babies (baby bed, twin with guards). It accommodates older folks with ramps and hand rails. The two best features are the pool and the screened in porch. Close proximity to lots of things to see and do. We will definitely be back to the Bumblebee Lodge Unit A.

We loved everything about The Bumblebee & Shamrock.
Both houses were very clean and well stocked.
Lovely decor, amazing pool. The furniture was comfortable
and arranged perfectly to give everyone ample room to enjoy the space.
Everything was in working order. Michael, the property manager was so easy to work with and was very friendly and helpful.
We've stayed her several times before, and we will happily stay here again.

Bumble Bee lodge is wonderful! The pool is huge and so much fun. It has lots of lounge chairs for sunning also umbrellas for shade. The slide was a blast for the kids! . There is a grill for cooking. And a shady table for outside eating. The loft bedroom sleeps 3 and has a bathroom, there’s a king size bed in the mbr and a small nearby bedroom for grandma ( or child) all share a bath. The cowboy bedroom and bath are adorable,. The fully equipped kitchen/ dining area is huge and can accommodate quite a crowd! We had 14 for lunch.! The living room is also large with a piano, tv, and 2 game tables . There is also a comfortable screen porch. The star gazing deck is almost finished.. ( we cant wait to use it on our next trip! We went to the family friendly Criders rodeo and dance on Sat night. ( 10 min) past Hunt . If you want to swim in the river there is access at Hunt and at lake Ingram and dam sliding! We spent a day in Fredericksburg. And San Antonio. If you also rent the cottage like we did it makes a great family reunion! Have fun !

Nice home with lots of space. Covered parking is a plus and the pool is right by the back door!

Been planning a yearly friends retreat here every year for almost a decade now! Each year is a blast and the location is great

Location. We wanted to have a good base to spend some good motorcycle riding time in the “Three Sisters” area around Medina, Leakey etc., but with access to civilization/restaurants, which is only 10 mls away. For that purpose, it’s ideal. The place has actually 4 bedrooms as one can see on the pictures (not 3 as it’s marketed as), and sleeps 8 people easily, in a good setup. Lots of space, large kitchen, dining room - a great pool area, a shaded patio, all good. It is an older house though, and it shows here and there, so don’t expect 4-star feel. But we loved it and will be back. Booked already.

The home is roomy w/ sturdy furnishings. It’s old school & quaint w/ modern amenities-cold AC, comfortable beds, & relaxing pool.

Bumblebee Lodge is amazing. Actually, amazing doesn’t even begin to describe how great this house truly is. With the decor, the porches, the pool, the other amenities…all made our stay about the best we’ve ever experienced.
The house is huge & very clean. 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms downstairs plus a bonus room and bathroom upstairs. One shower is handicap accessible which was great. The decor kept us busy for days, trying to take it all in. So much to see! The kitchen/dining area are huge, well appointed and perfect for large families. The bedrooms were cozy, with comfortable beds and we slept well both nights. The living room is also large with ample seating and gaming tables for the children/adults to have fun. The outdoor area is the best! The pool was perfect in every way. Sparkling clean water with an giant slide our teens had a blast on. The depth was just for swimming or relaxing, and even had a wading area for smaller children and they even furnish a few floaties, toys and beach towels too. For indoor entertainment, we had a blast watching classic vcr tapes and then switched over to regular cable programs. The have dozens of games & toys for little ones and also equipment like playpen & high chair for babies. There’s also an office/library with books, computer & printer. There’s a washer/dryer to use and a dishwasher too. The owner has honestly thought of everything to make your vacation as perfect as possible.

We were looking for a pool for our preschool grandchildren and the pool was fabulous! It had a waiting section that was perfect.
Julie G. May 2021
Lots of room. Clean.
Llewellyn A. Nov 2020
Loved the location; plenty of comfortable beds & bathrooms. Big outdoor space; fun pool with slide.
Pots & pans, knives & utensils aren't meant to feed large crowds. Hodge podge mix of what is available - plan ahead & bring what you need.

Rented this house to enjoy my wife’s birthday with some friends. Needless to say, the gas grill ran out of propane mid grilling and there was no extra tanks on site. Was also enjoying the pool during the day, but had trouble locating the pool light switch. I reached out to the property management and nobody got back to me. I called back the next mid-day and they texted me stating “unfortunately the pool needs to be drained to check the pool lights.” Kind of ridiculous if you ask me....
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Mark. We apologize that your experience in our home was not the vacation you had planned for which we strive to provide for our guests. We are sorry this experience had a negative impact on your stay, and we hope to have the chance to impress you in the future.
Jonathan M. Sep 2020
The house was not clean for our stay. Aside from making the beds, I don't see where the cleaning fee goes. There were mouse droppings in the kitchen, a broken fake nail in the middle of the floor, and several guests left with several flea bites. It doesn't seem like the couches are vacuumed. The location is great, the pool is nice (although the lights do not work, so you're time in the pool is limited to the day), but there was a lot to be desired.
Manager response:
Hi! Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We have implemented a Premium Clean program so we can continue to strive to provide our guests with fulfilling experiences; We apologize for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.

Had a great time at the home and had everything we needed for the week. Pool was excellent. All was good except for two issues.

When I booked the home it was labeled a 'Private Pool.' But that changed a few weeks before our stay when they decided to rent out a small cottage (at a fraction of the price) that would share the pool. Luckily I noticed or it would have absolutely ruined our stay. The only reason we booked the lodge was to distance ourselves from others while enjoying the pool. So I ended up having to also book the Cottage in order to secure the 'Private Pool'. Not ideal but worked out ok. I do feel slightly ripped off.

Second issue is the Master Bed. Why did y'all put two twin-beds together to pass off as a queen? Not ideal for the folks who pay for the stay to have the least comfortable bed.

Other than those two issues it was a terrific stay, very clean and stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen. Pool was clean and the slide was epic. Plenty of towels, linens etc. Love the throwback feel of the VCR. Great property. Thanks for the hospitality!
Manager response:

This was an awesome place, clean awesome pool, nicely stocked with all cooking utensils, bbq pit, we had the best time with our grandkids!
Cathy L. Aug 2020
Bumblebee Lodge is like visiting grandma's house. Very warm and inviting. Kid and pet friendly. The pool was a hit!
Cathleen D. Aug 2020
Our family of six enjoyed the Bumblebee Lodge. The pool was great especially the slide. The home is older and could use some TLC, deep cleaning, and organizing but overall a good experience.
Ramon A. Jul 2020
We had a great time with the family. Everyone loved the pool. The house had a lot of character. Wish we could have went on the balcony, but in all a great time!
jordan B. Jul 2020
We had a wonderful ladies and little girls getaway here. The pool is amazing and it feels like you are staying at your grandparents house. We never left! Can't wait to book again.
Lori L. Jun 2020
House was clean and well organized. We enjoyed the pool. Lots of room inside for everyone to do what they wanted to do. Great vacation for any family.
Jonathan P. May 2020
Great location and house had lots of character. You can tell that the house was loved by it family.

Some of the furniture is a bit worn out as well as some of cookware.
Amanda A. May 2020
Just spent three nights at the Bumblebee Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There were eight of us, and the space was perfect. My mother-in-law had her own room, all the kids had the upstairs space, and two bedrooms for each couple. The family room, kitchen and dining were all spacious. The decor was vintage and charming, with puzzles, games and internet provided to keep everyone entertained. We all loved having the great pool to ourselves and spent the whole weekend swimming and grilling. My only complaint is that the king and queen mattresses need to be replaced as they slump in the middle. We still had an amazing stay though!
Rhianna S. Mar 2020
The place is fully appointed with everything you need. No luxuries but a lot of space to spread out and enjoy the peace and quiet. Very good value for the cost. Pool is fantastic.
Shayla J. Jan 2020
We came during Christmas. The pool was on and working. My son and husband actually got in. It took their breath away but they loved it. The long kitchen table was probably one of the best parts. My aunts wheelchair was able to fit right up at the head of the table. She had an amazing time. She showered every day. The shower was perfect for her. It’s the type a shower you wish you had. The hot water was beyond hot. The washer and dryer is not located in the home. It is actually just outside the door with its own little room. I did multiple loads of laundry so that we always had clean towels and clothes. There is plenty of movies and games. Plenty of beds we didn’t even use the upstairs. We weren’t able to go on the deck that was located upstairs due to it being under repairs. But from what I could see it looked amazing. The books, pictures and knickknacks just suck to you in to a cozy little home.

Extended family rented both Bumble Bee Lodge and Shamrock Cottage. We had a wonderful time in the pool with the slide. Lots of shade around the pool for grandparents to relax. Three grand daughters claimed the loft, their parents enjoyed the privacy of the Cottage. Great grandmother had the small room off the master suite. We used the grill for burgers and the fire pit to make S?mores. Very comfortable gathering in the kitchen for serving meals and the living room for story telling, game playing, guitar & piano playing and singing. Great fun at a great place, many memory building experiences. Very clean, very comfortable, the ?country home? type atmosphere that we will return to in the future.
Vahid A. Aug 2018
very roomy and clean. The pool is the best part of the house. we ended up spending quite alot of time lounging around it and it was a life saver in the summer.
Kristi E. Jul 2018
Nice place to stay if you're looking for something different than a hotel. Location was good, just far away from hustle of town, yet still close enough if you needed to run to store or go to a restaurant. Loved that we were able to bring our pets. Will definitely be coming back.

Spent Mother?s Day with 3 generations was fun for all ages the pool was a hit
Sunny O. Aug 2017
Bumblebee lodge was perfect for two families picking up campers over a long weekend. There is plenty of room for everyone and the pool was delightful for hot August days. Beds are comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and there are plenty of towels, pool towels etc. See you next year!
