RiverNook Pet Friendly Zen Retreat

Apartments in Bastrop
There's this place that allows you to forget about the world...

RiverNook 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, three sitting decks, a lighted fishing deck, a swimming platform, outdoor grilling and dining pavilion and, you’ll love our zenhammocks. 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. It is the perfect Zencation spot!

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

We have a feeling, like so many others over the years, you'll fall in love with RiverNook.

The Space

RiverNook is a cozy relaxing garage apartment. It does have a flight of stairs at the entry. The space is 400 square feet with a Queen bed, kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, dining table and mini fridge. There's even an outdoor grilling and dining pavilion! 

A large Smart TV allows you to access your favorite apps and Our High Speed Wi-Fi extends over a good portion 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 Rental Agreement for our pet guests)

Whether a romantic getaway or a weekday, week or weekend adventure, we are sure that RiverNook will delight the nature lover inside and rejuvenate your soul!

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.

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!

Should you need to house more guests, you can rent our Main House, RiversEdge located on the same grounds or The RiverHouse and Harmony House which are just down the road, if they are available.

Guest have access to RiverNook, and the features located on the grounds... river access, hammocks, decks, seating areas and chairs. Kayaks and Canoes may be rented from us if needed.

You may see us while 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.
