Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Recently retired, own and operate ranch with our house 1/2 mile south of the entrance. The cabin is another quarter mile south out of view of the main house. We run cattle on the ranch, but they will not bother you and we ask you respect their solitude. We love the country, rodeo's, golf, boating on Lake Bridgeport, swimming, tennis, racquetball, travel and the peace and quiet of the country.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Bridgeport:
We bought this ranch from the granddaughter of a man who homesteaded this ranch in 1886. The stone house near the gate was originally part of the property. After we rehabilitated it with the intent to start a winery, the neighbors horse pasture was sold and changed the scenery, so we sold the house to a friend and developed the ranch land. As you arrive at the gate, you will have been provided a special temporary code to open the gate. Or, if you lose the code, just call Rick's cell number which will have been provided. Also, the home number is posted on the gate box.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
If you enjoy solitude, modern comfort, yet the ability to enjoy the country, we believe you will enjoy staying here. You can fish in the pond close to the cabin. It is stocked with catfish, perch, bass, and crappie. Each year we add more fish. February 21st, 2015 we added another 200 bass, blue gill, & crappie. Due to flooding and loss of much of our fish, we added another 300 catfish and perch in early June 2015. Bring your horses, and you can use our corral and trails. For the ranch bring your ATV, 4 wheeler, or simply enjoy the ranch on hiking the trails, biking, grilling or simply relax around a camp fire. Use the gun range with agreement to abide by the safety agreement. Also, we have bow and arrows for use at the range. We have two flat screen televisions with cable TV, DVD player, movies and Wi-fi. Enjoy an evening soak in the two person hot tub, located in the master bedroom. Nearby is: Bridgeport Northwest OHV/ATV and 4 wheeling Park 2914 Hwy 101 Bridgeport, TX 76426 940-683-3480 (M-F) 940-683-3685 (Weekends)
