Leakey lodge description

Circle H Lodge, a historic house from the early 1900's, is near Leakey, TX, in an area of the Texas Hill Country noted for magnificent scenery. The lodge is located in a lovely, secluded valley on Circle H Ranch. This is a working ranch devoted to the preservation of wildlife and is home to many species of both native and non-native animals. The two-story lodge is completely renovated and decorated in Cowboy High Style with antiques and Cowboy-Indian memorabilia. It has central heat and air-conditioning and provides many amenities. There is a large living and dining area. The five bedrooms are each uniquely decorated in western style and will sleep 10 people +. Two bedrooms have king sized beds, one room has a full bed and two bedrooms have a pair of twin beds. There are two full baths. An upstairs sunroom provides a comfortable place to relax while enjoying the beautiful, panoramic view.

The well equipped kitchen includes a large side-by-side refrigerator, double convection oven, microwave and dishwasher. Also, a wood/coal barbecue grill and a fire-pit are provided for outdoor cooking. The spacious yard that surrounds the lodge is perfect for picnics or even family football. Let the kids run free in a secured, carpet grass and manicured lawn area. Enjoy your children's giggles and pure delight as they meet and interact with nature. Relax at the lodge or down by the natural rock, spring-fed swimming pool in front of the lodge.

                  Year Purchased: 1977

                  About: Circle H Lodge is a family owned and operated business since 1977. At the ranch we strive to give our guests the very best experience while they're our guests. In fact we make it a point to make updates every year so that our return guests and new guests have something fabulous to enjoy.

                  Why Leakey:
                  Circle H Lodge offers a one of a kind adventure vacation for people of all ages. Located in the Frio Canyon, Circle H lodge is a uniquely special place for lodging, fun, and relaxation in the tranquil Texas Hill Country. Relax on the porch or decks and soak up the panoramic views of nature at its finest. We are just minutes away from the Frio River and Garner State Park. Although you might venture out for the day to one of these other locations, most of our guests choose to spend their time relaxing at our own peaceful haven in the natural, spring-fed private pool. Circle H Lodge is a secluded, private, and historic home which can accommodate both large groups and small parties. The lodge is perfect for family vacations, reunions, private parties, wedding venues, or as a romantic getaway. Bikers, bicyclists, and car club members are welcome. Our friendly and helpful staff is here to help you have the most unforgettable experience at the lodge.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  You will be absolutely amazed at the breathtaking views and variety of wildlife surrounding the lodge in a free roaming environment. You might even think you are in another country or perhaps even paradise. The stars at night will dazzle anyone who lives in the city and has forgotten just how many you can see in the country sky. Campfire stories can be told while relaxing by the firepit as big and little kids enjoy roasting marshmallows. The serene, refreshing water and lazy, shaded hammocks will make you forget all your worries. Fishing is available on site. The kids will never want to stop catching tadpoles, minnows, and crawdads in the creeks and streams that surround the lodge. Hiking is available to those wanting a little more adventure. Bird watcher enthusiasts will enjoy one of the best bird watching areas in the United States.
