Kerrville apartment description
Feel like royalty when you stay at our beautiful, private penthouse located on an historic Texas Hill Country ranch. Los Caballitos Ranch known to many as Thistlewood Farms, one of the world's top rated Arabian horse ranches, has now opened it's gates as a guest ranch. The unique and one of a kind facility is no longer the home for top Arabians, but is now an all new event center. The penthouse is the only guest quarters located on the top floor of the event center. It offers privacy, large quarters, and views of the resident horses and hills. Los Caballitos Ranch is the perfect getaway for family reunions, wedding guests, holidays, all girls' weekend, or just a romantic getaway. Spend your mornings on the porch sipping coffee, watching the natural wildlife, and spend the day either relaxing, enjoying one of our on-site activities, or touring the nearby towns.
Los Caballitos offers many on-site activities such as: hiking, fishing, swimming, paddleboats, picnics by the pond, and many special packages for your perfect stay. Most activities need to be arranged at the time of booking. Special packages can be viewed on our website.
The Kerrville area offers several activities to keep you busy during your stay. Kerrville is home to fine restaurants, museums, a golf course, shopping, and the Guadalupe River. Up the road you will find the historic Fredericksburg where you can spend the day shopping and touring th local wineries. San Antonio is only one hour away from the ranch where you will find the famous Alamo, Riverwalk, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, and much more.
Los Caballitos offers other accommodations for larger groups, so bring the whole family! We also offer a 4 bedroom home located directly on our 17-acre spring-fed pond and a quaint cottage where celebrities such as Patrick Swayze called home.
So we invite you to come rest your heads at our authentic Texas ranch and enjoy a little piece of the Texas Hill Country. Visit our website for more pictures.

We recently stayed for a four day couple weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. The apartment is on beautiful hill country property! Spacious, very clean and well equipped...definitely a must stay. We were not far at all from a large grocery store and plenty of restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for your next stay. I will gladly reserve again for my next hill country trip!

Our stay at the Los Caballitos Ranch apartment was great. My family and I stayed there last week and I am already recommending it to friends. It is very spacious, very clean and the beds are sooooo comfortable! We saw swans on the lake, deer grazing near the apartment and of course, the lovely resident horses. We didn't use the library or exercise room, but they were available and seemed very nice. I highly recommend this wonderful rental.

We planned our Christmas vacation this year around our two year old grandson. He's too young to ski and just beginning to understand the fanfare of the holidays. We were looking for a place in the hill country where we could easily access Fredericksburg, Kerrville, and other sites in the area. We planned to venture out each night and visit a community on the Hill Country Light Tour, while shopping and exploring sites during the day. The ranch was amazing and the perfect choice for our family. Our grown children live in different cities and we don't get to spend time as a family but once or twice a year. We wanted accommodations large enough to sleep everyone so we could stay together, prepare meals, watch movies, play board games, etc. The three full bathrooms were great for getting ready for excursions. The property was amazing and we enjoyed the lake and picnic spots, fishing, and view. Great time, we can't wait to return.

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The apartment was clean, well furnished and the location was so beautiful. The blueberry muffins left for us by the owner were scrumptious and made us feel right at home. Waking up and looking out at the horses and other animals was so peaceful. We saw several deer, swans, and other wildIife. I have heard it said "God vacations all over the world, but He resides in the Texas Hill Country" and after staying here I believe it! I highly recommend this as a vacation getaway for any looking for peace and quiet and easy accessibility to other attractions in the area. Would be a fabulous place for a family reunion.

Owner response: Thank you Zee for the nice review. We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon for a family reunion!
I was overwhelmed by the scenery that met me when we arrived. The beautiful green rolling hills, the horses pasturing right outisde the kitchen window and the fresh-baked cookies that met us upon arrival all worked together to make this a truly unique experience. From walking over to the lake to see the swans (where, by the way, is a perfect log for picture-taking) to sitting out on the front porch sipping my coffee in the morning, to lounging with a glass of wine while I took in the too numerous to count stars, the surroundings made me feel like I had taken a step back in time, while the enormous kitchen made me feel like I was in a contemporary novel. If you are looking for some peace and quiet to come home to after visiting the Alamo, Sea World, Fredericksburg or the River Walk then this place definitely fits the bill! I will stay here again!!
