Goliad cottage description

The Green Jay Cottage is one of three guest houses located on the Barnhart Q5 Ranch & Nature Retreat, a working South Texas ranch. We invite you to enjoy the 706 acres of wildlife habitat - hike, bike, swim in the 30,000 'tank', fish in our stock ponds, swing in the shade of the old-growth oaks, or rock the day away on the shaded porches. At night sit out by the firepit enjoying the dark night skies, or golf cart up to the top of the hill to the stargazing platform and watch for meteor showers.

Plan your trip around the Hummingbird migrations (September - October and late March - April), Wildflower season (late March - July), or one of Goliad's great family events such as the Texas Mile, Missions Tour de Goliad bike ride (3rd Sat. in October), the Reenactment of the Battle at Coleto Creek (last weekend in March). We are happy to help you plan your visit here!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2011

          About the owner: Our philosophy of ranch management is all about conservation and preservation of the native habitat here; in 2004, we were the proud recipients of Texas Parks' & Wildlife's Lone Star Land Steward Award for our conservation efforts. Our biggest achievement has been the payoff of seeing our wildlife populations increase over the years with proper land and brush management. Visitors delight in hearing the coyote serenades at night, and may encounter an occasional wild critter while here. We love to show our guests around the ranch with maps in hand, then turn them loose to make the ranch their home. We're available for tours, educational hikes, or will give you full space to unwind on your own while here.

          Why the Owner Chose Goliad:
          The Green Jay Cottage's 2 bedroom/1 bath size fills the niche needed within the current guest house compound to supply housing for up to 6 people.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Beautiful South Texas brush country; working ranch - help us call in the cows! Brush and love on our mediterranean miniature donkeys! or just re-charge your batteries in the calm of the natural environment.
