Property description

The vacation cabin at Brazos Bluffs Ranch is a comfortable and beautiful log house for couples or the whole family who want a quiet get-a-way. This is the only guest house on our 200+ acre ranch.
Located 5 miles north of the Waco city limits and 10 miles from Baylor University but feels like you're in a state park.
Guests enjoy fishing, canoeing & kayaking in the Brazos River. We provide Canoes & Kayaks. House guests get a 20% discount for a guided horseback ride on the ranch.
See the photos of the aspen wood ceilings, granite counter tops, American elm wood floors, antler chandelier.
Propane BBQ grill provided!
The house is accessed by a private road through gated private property.
To look at the house you must call for a reservation and meet the owner at the property entrance.
There is not a telephone or TV in the house. Most cell phones have service in the house.
(No smoking on property)


Location Details: Brazos Bluffs Ranch is accessed from Halbert Lane through the Brazos De Dios Farm where the Homestead Heritage Craft Village is located.
This is a short drive to Baylor and the City of Waco.

The map on Yahoo is not correct. See the ranch website's map for directions.
You will need to call us before you come so we can provide directions to our ranch.

Horseback Riding: Brazos Bluffs Stables, LLC offers western horseback rides year-round along the Brazos River and on the rim of the overlooking chalk bluff plus miles of other scenic trails on our ranch. The ride is normally $40 per person but as a house renter you get 20% off!
Horses, tack and helmets are provided.
No experience is necessary.
For your comfort it's best to wear appropriate riding apparel: jeans or riding skirts and closed-toe shoes or riding boots. Most of the horses can carry a maximum of 225 - 250 lbs. up the steep hills. If you will need a larger horse, please mention that when you call for reservations.

River Pavilion: The ranch's 800 sq. ft. screened-in river pavilion and 1,330 sq. ft. deck (35' x 38') overlooking the Brazos River plain is an ideal place for family gatherings and business retreats.

We offer a volleyball net, horseshoe pits and a ping pong table for you to enjoy, along with an outdoor BBQ pit and gas grill for parties of any size.

The kitchen inside the pavilion includes a refrigerator and sink. The pavilion, deck and separate restrooms are all easily handicapped accessible.
