There's this place where you can forget about the world!

Located on the beautiful Colorado River, our property is Zen Central with two acres of quiet meditative spots.

We've been told the meditative sounds of the river in this spot, are enchanting. Fish, tube, kayak, swim or just sit and watch it all flow by.

Birds and wildlife abound. Our tropical indoor dome with over 400 plants and our fun loving koi allow you to get your zen on.

It's the ultimate sanctuary to get away from it all.

The space
Located at one of the historical crossing points of the El Camino Real Trail on the Colorado River, Harmony House has much to offer! Harmony is a cozy relaxing retreat. The garage apartment space is 400 square feet lower section, and a 100 square foot loft. We have been told by many of our guest, this is the nicest booking they have ever made.

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

While the house is well designed and extremely nice, keep in mind that it is a garage apartment with 14 steps to the living area as you enter. It will accommodate 4 people, the loft area, with two twin beds, can be a bit tight for adults. That being said, many adults have slept there with no complaint.

Smart TV with wireless connection allows you to access Netflix or Amazon Prime Video and Alexa will play your favorite tunes, give you restaurant recommendations or play games.

It's a beautiful meditative setting. There are many patios situated under huge trees, which makes for a very relaxing and calming atmosphere. Enjoy the many species of birds and the occasional Bald Eagle as they sing and call out to you. Our wifi extends over most of the property for you modern convenience types! Our Growing Dome is an 10,000 cf indoor paradise built to capture my love of all things tropical.

Please keep in mind that this is a nature Sanctuary. I can promise that while we keep the place incredibly clean, you may see a centipede crawling on the floor or a dirt dabber flying in the cabin. Please enjoy the place for what it is, and enjoy nature in all its splendor. Enjoy the view of the river and grounds from your own balcony as you sip a favorite wine or beverage.

We love and welcome dogs and they love interacting on our grounds, however, please take into consideration the size of our apartment when booking with larger or multiple dogs. We do have a $30.00 per pet, per stay fee which helps keep us pet friendly. (See House Rules for our pet guest)

Fishing, swimming, kayaking are all popular here. Bring your own kayaks or rent them from local suppliers. From Fisherman's Park in Bastrop you can enjoy a 5.5 mile downstream float to our property.

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

My 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.

The grounds may be shared with other guest from time to time and quite often I can be found working in the gardens.

I cannot wait to share my sanctuary with you!

During your stay

I typically am on the property in the early mornings tending the grounds and gardens. I try to stay out of your way but I do love to chat with my guest and entertain if they are so inclined. If you need anything during the day just message me on the booking app.
