HarmonyHouse: Pet Friendly River Paradise Getaway

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
There's this place that allows you to forget about the world...

Harmony House is a pet friendly, zen inspired retreat located on the banks of the beautiful Colorado River in Bastrop Texas. You’ll lose yourself on our shady sculptured grounds, eight different patios, each with their own theme and energy and you’ll love our zen-hammocks. You’ll find it hard to believe you’re only 2 miles from downtown Bastrop. The property is truly Zen Central with access to the river where water activities are popular. You’ll be surrounded by the sounds of the water flowing by and hundreds of bird songs. Visit our tropical dome, home of our popular Koifish, who think they are the star attraction. It is the perfect Zencation spot!

We have a feeling, like so many others over the years, you'll fall in love with HarmonyHouse. This is where Zen RiverHouse getaways all began and it is still the favorite of thousands of guest who have visited over the years.

The Space

Harmony is a cozy relaxing garage apartment. It does have a flight of interior stairs at the entry. The space is 400 square feet main area, and a 100 square foot loft, which is a favorite with kids, but many adults have slept there as well. Enjoy drinks on your balcony, which overlooks the grounds and dome. We have been told by many of our guest, this is the nicest, Kewlest, booking they have ever made.

1 Queen bed lower level, 2 twin beds in the loft. A kitchenette with hot plate, microwave, coffee maker and mini fridge. There's even a large propane griddle in the shade on the upper patio just outside your door!

Smart TV allows you to access the popular streaming apps and Alexa will play your favorite tunes, give you restaurant recommendations or play games. Our High Speed Wi-Fi extends over most of the property for you modern convenience types!

It's a beautiful relaxing setting where you can truly forget about the world.

We love and welcome our well-behaved dog guest and they love our grounds. We do have a $50.00 per pet per stay fee which helps keep us pet friendly. Please let us know how many pet friends will be staying. (See House Rules for our pet guest)

Whether a romantic getaway or family outing, we are sure that Harmony House will delight the nature lover inside and rejuvenate your soul!

Our greatest joy is having happy guest, please look over the photos before you book. Most come here for the meditative grounds and river setting. If you are looking for a huge sprawling home to lock yourself in for days on end, this is definitely not the place. Our sister properties, The RiverHouse or RiversEdge are better suited for that.

Please Note: The grounds may be shared with other guest from our sister property, TheRiverHouse, which is located on the same grounds. The grounds are large with plenty of spaces for everyone.

Guest have access to Harmony House, the tropical dome and the features located on the grounds... river access, hammocks, 8 patios, seating areas and chairs.

You may see us while we are tending the grounds or gardens, just say hi and we'll introduce ourselves. We do give our guest privacy but we love to entertain and chat if you are so inclined.

While a 2-night stay is possible, the vast majority of our guest’s have told us they wished they had booked an additional night. If a 3-night stay is possible we recommend booking at least 3 days as it is seldom possible to add a night at the last minute. 
Should you need additional space for more guest, check out our sister properties, The RiverHouse located on the same grounds or RiversEdge and RiverNook Located just down the street.

We also offer The Serenity Kayak Experience, The Serenity Hiking Experience as well as tube and Canoe rentals. The Experiences are great ways to explore our beautiful river and forests with me as your guide and have become very popular with our guest. Or, try our rental packages if you prefer to explore on your own... Just message me for more details!

Pleasant getaway
My partner and I enjoyed staying at the Harmony House to enjoy the holidays together. We loved hanging out at the garden dome and around the river to watch the sunset. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed to make a meal. Overall we loved the property and will come back to visit!

Nice Bungalow Close to Town
We loved our stay at the Harmony house over Christmas. It is close to our family in Bastrop and much more affordable than at Hotel in town. It is also a great place to see wildlife, as I saw no less than four deer, including a giant 8-point buck that walked in front of my car to let me take a picture. Accommodations are cozy, and my wife and I enjoyed sleeping upstairs while our two married kids had downstairs. I highly recommend it.

Unique & Ideal Stay
Harmony House was a lovely place to stay for two nights during Thanksgiving. It was so nice to be able to visit with family and easily return to this zen haven, rather than sleep on a relative’s sofa! We wandered around the gardens, admired the floral and fauna, meditated a bit in the dome, and drank wine on the deck overlooking the grounds. The apartment was quaint, tidy, and comfortably cozy. It felt like an adventure to sleep in such a unique space! We used the kitchenette for coffee and quick snacks and found everything we needed. The only detail that could improve it (for us) would be a small, dimmable, bedside lamp, for when you need a little light to see, but not a bright light. Something to add to the (already wonderful) ambiance.

Great little getaway
My husband, dog and I stayed here for a long weekend getaway due to its proximity to hiking options as well as how cool the property looked. The actual cabin was cozy and very clean and had everything we needed. The fire pit and multiple backyard terraces overlooking the water was really serene.
