Bring your own tubes and use their direct river access for a nice 30min-1hr float (depending on how fast the river is moving). Loved the back porch […]

Review: “Great Place for a Group”

Group Rental

4 out of 5 Stars Stayed Sept 2017 A guest from Austin, Texas Reviewer Comments: A really fun time out at this ranch. House is wonderful, clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked and best were great. Only downside is that it smells – and in a very strong way – like oil/gas if there is not a breeze. As you should note, the street name of this house is Oil Field Drive…and it depicts the area well. There is a pump well right outside the kitchen window and the fumes surround the house when there is not a breeze. […]

Texas Ranch Rental

Rating: 5-stars! Guest: Gary K. Date of stay: 01/24/14 My friends and I got together for our annual college reunion type of event. We had 14 total guys and girls. Everyone loved it and the girls especially loved the hot tub, showers, and kitchen. They were all beautifully designed and easily big enough to accommodate our group. You’ll definitely want to turn the hot tub on when you get there because it takes several hours to heat up… it’s worth it though. We enjoyed going for a run all over the land and exploring. We enjoyed having some drinks during […]

San Marcos River

Rating: 5-stars! Guest: Guest Jaime (Austin, TX) Date of stay: 05/17/13 This was absolutely one of the most special places that I have been. Driving up through the Blue Bonnets, past the cattle and up to the most spectacular house- I knew we had made the right choice in the first 5 minute of being here! The home itself was so welcoming, clean and the perfect space to accommodate our group of couples looking to get away and relax for the weekend. I’ve never seen a group of 30 year old adults so giddy and excited about a piece of […]
