Lampasas house description

M&M Hill Country Creekside is a unique and captivating retreat among Texas hill country vacation rentals. We like to call it 'paradise in a 20 acre hill-country bottle.' And if gas prices or the shaky economy requires you to stretch your vacation dollar, you won't find a better value among Texas hill country vacation rentals.

What do our guests enjoy most about their time at M&M Creekside?

• Swimming, Wading, and Fishing along our 1600 ft of Spring-fed Sulfur Creek frontage
• Relaxing on our 30' x 13' ft balcony overlooking the creek and 20 acres
• Hiking the ridges and creekline of our 20 acres
• The private pool
• Two hill country wineries within 5 miles of our front door; two more wineries within 30 miles.
• Hancock Park Golf Course only 3 miles from our front door
• Comfortably accommodating large groups with our ability to sleep 18 in beds
• Touring the local shops, restaurants, and historic district of Lampasas
• Gathering around the two wood-burning fireplaces and outdoor fire pit for wintertime retreats
• Inks Lake and Colorado Bend State Parks within and hour's drive.
• Half-day outings to the shops and art galleries of Salado
• Having a Walmart and HEB grocery less than three miles away
• Creating hill country memories that last for generations.

Entering the south gate of M&M Creekside is the start of your leaving a crowded world behind. Cedar-lined hillsides descend to open pasture lands sprinkled with mature oaks and several other species of native trees growing along the over 1600 ft. of vibrant, spring-fed Sulfur Creek. This creek is the source of our guests' inspiration and rejuvenation, which is no surprise given the fact that Lampasas was settled in the mid-1800's for the curative power of its springs. Our creek runs year-round and features waterfalls and several deep pools - perfect for swimming, tubing, fishing, skipping rocks, or just sitting under a tree and watching a Fall leaf make its lazy way down river.

A spacious 3500+ square foot home features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on two stories. Four of the five bedrooms offer private french-door access to the rear patio and deck that overlook the private pool and creek below. Elderly guests who have difficulty with stairs need not worry, as the two stories operate as a 1st floor main level with kitchen, family room, and two bedrooms, with a stairway leading downward to a basement level with three additional bedrooms and gameroom.
The open kitchen includes a big breakfast area and beamed ceiling. The main floor living features a fireplace and wraparound deck looking directly onto the creek and across the property's pasture lands. The master bedroom includes an entrance to the deck and its own private full bath. A 2nd bedroom on the main floor also has access to a 2nd full bath. The main level also features a large utility room with washer/dryer and half bath. The basement floor includes a large gameroom with a 2nd fireplace, 3 large bedrooms, a full bath, and a full wet bar and microwave. The gameroom has french doors leading to a stone patio with BBQ area and a beautiful pool overlooking Sulfur Creek. The entire property is gated and fully fenced, lending to the privacy that hill country vacationers prefer.

Located in Lampasas, TX, this Texas Hill Country Vacation Rental is about 45 miles northwest of Austin, 170 miles south of Dallas, and 115 miles north of San Antonio. While secluded on County Road 3010, our creekside ranch is only minutes from Highways 190, 183, and 281 and only 2 miles away from a full service Walmart w/ grocery. The tourist-friendly town square of Lampasas is easily walkable, sprinkled with local shops and the kind of country cookin' restaurants that have faithfully served the town's lifelong residents. Hancock Park Golf Course offers 18 holes of scenic fairways and greens that interplay with the hills and creek on which Lampasas was founded. Lampasas also features two local wineries you may be interested in touring: Pillar Bluff and Texas Legato. Bring a bottle back from one of these local vineyards and enjoy a glass of wine from our balcony as the sun sets on our hill country horizon.

It doesn’t take long to access many of the hill country’s outdoor and entertainment assets from M&M Creekside’s central location. An hour's drive west takes you to Colorado Bend State Park. Lake Buchanan is also a similarly short drive to the southwest, and Inks Lake State Park is only 40 minutes from your front door. More golf options await in nearby Copperas Cove (Copperas Cove Golf Course) and Burnet (Delaware Springs Golf Course). Then there is Austin. Depart M&M Creekside in the late afternoon and you'll arrive in central Austin in just over an hour, ready to savor the dining and music delights of 6th Street, or to join 98,000 of your closest friends at a primetime Texas Longhorns football game.

So if you are looking for a hill country destination to serve your honeymoon, family reunion, pastoral retreat, boy scout troop, romantic getaway, or long-overdue recharging of the soul, M&M Creekside (and a creek full of catfish and bass) awaits your arrival! If you have any questions or special requests, please call Bryan at 832-628-5673 or Jane at 713-857-8159. We look forward to your visit!

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Bryan and Jane Thomas are the owners of M&M Creekside. We have a passion for creating lasting memories for families and celebrations. Please call us if there is anything we can assist you with. Best Regards, Bryan and Jane

                  Why the Owner Chose Lampasas:
                  Bryan and I had looked for over 2 years for a Hill Country property and then I remembered that a close friend at church had this property in Lampasas. When we entered the property, we both fell in love and knew this one was the one for us. It just so happened that the owners were ready to sell, as their families were in a different place in their lives, with young children needing lots of weekend attention, and they were ready to sell. It all worked out - it was a 'God thing.'
