San Antonio house description
This is a completely renovated Ranch house that was originally built in the early 1900's by a Rancher and famous Rodeo rider (Jess Akers). There are still many of the original Corrals and outbuildings. The 30 acres is abundant with Oak, Pecan, and Misquite trees.
One great big Oak Tree sits in the front yard ,which is a beautiful sight when siting outside on the large porch. If inside, the central heating and air conditioning keeps it very comfortable. The wood burning fireplace is downstairs in a room that everyone can enjoy. (NOTE: To see another of my San Antonio properties go to listing #2744).
CALAVERAS LAKE is only a mile away, but there is a large Pond 200 yards from the house. The pond is about 75 yards long, 50 yards wide, and has a gentle slope to a depth of about 8 ft. With the fresh clean well water supplying it, swimming is great, and so is the fishing. The pond was built and stocked with Channel Cats, Bluegill Perch, and Largemouth Bass in July 2002. Tables are set under trees so makes for a great picnic area. Fishing gear on-site, and a bait place only a half-mile away. The very large Pavilion has electricity, water, bar-b-q, and there are two bathrooms. One of them is handicap accessible.

Each summer a group of friends and I attend a huge conference and we like to stay in the same property. The ranch house was exactly what we were looking for! The main house was plenty big enough for our group. We also rented the cabin which is where I stayed with my family. Both homes were clean and comfortable. The pictures of the pavilion do not do it justice! It is beautiful--especially at night when it is lit up with thousands of tiny lights! When we arrived the owner was mowing the laws so it was ready for us. He was incredibly nice and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. We knew this place would be a little bit of a drive to downtown San Antonio, but it was well worth it to be able to stay in such a great place! I'd not only recommend this place to friends and family, but I would stay there again if I have the chance to go back to Texas. The only thing I wish they had was a hammock so I could have laid out under the stars at night.

This property is nothing short of fabulous. This is a spotless, beautifully maintained home. The owners/managers are so pleasant and helpful. My 2 year old grandson had as great a time as my teens and 90 year old grandmother. Thank you so much - would definitely like to come back for a longer stay.
