  • Magical Family Gathering

    "Chinquapin Ranch was even more beautiful than the lovely pictures on the website. It was exceedingly well maintained and the foreman was immediately there for any need that arose. The owner was superbly gracious. She recommended a family cook and her husband to us and we were treated to the most delicious Sunday brunch on our last day at the ranch. For the past 40 years, my family has gathered for a weekend vacation, our "Fling", and this is the first year any of us can recall that every single person, young and old, city and country folk, absolutely loved the place we gathered. No one wanted to leave by the time Sunday rolled around. The houses are beautifully maintained, and the decor is rich with history and perfectly suited for a hill country ranch. There is absolutely nothing that needs to be brought to the ranch for the kitchen, as it was completely stocked with everything you can imagine! We had an entire list of activities to do in and around Kerrville and Fredericksburg, but the fact is that no one left the ranch. We arrived on Thursday, and spent our entire days and nights on the property. We had baseball games, puzzle and ping pong tournaments, played basketball and badminton, enjoyed card games and washers, and so much more. The space is so large that there is plenty of room for people to spread out or be as intimate as desired. The shade of the large oak, pecan, sycamore and other trees was so enjoyable. The birds were an added bonus. Despite the drought in Texas, we thoroughly enjoyed the "pool", which is really the size of a small lake, as well as the paddle boat and couple of kayaks available for us to use. Although we have rented many places over the years, we have never EVER had a place that so completely met the needs of each person in my family as was the case at Chinquapin. In the bucket lists of life, the Chinquapin Ranch is a must for anyone interested in a hill country adventure unlike anything else anywhere. We loved our stay, and this will go down in family history as the most magical family gathering we ever experienced. We are grateful and thankful for the opportunity and we hope we are able to experience Chinquapin again next year, or the next time a family wedding roles around. This would be an incredible place to hold a celebration. Thank you for the memories."

    "What a lovely home . The pictures online doesn't do this house justice . It's much nicer in person . The home was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked . We loved the fact that we could see the lake from almost every room in the house . We loved waking up seeing the lake from our bed in the master bedroom . Jon was very helpful and very easy to get a hold of when we had questions . His wife Casey , was also very sweet and helpful too. Great experience working with both Jon and Casey. Our grandsons enjoyed being able to swim right off the dock . We spent the whole day in the water on Saturday . Sunday we rented a boat which they bring right up to our dock . Lots of pretty views from the house too. We will definitely rent this home again . Great time had by ALL"

  • Girls' Weekend

    "We recently rented this house for 2 nights and absolutely loved it! The location was convenient and close to everything in Gruene, and the view was spectacular! There were 5 of us gals and plenty of room. The house is spacious and the property leading to the river is beautiful. The owner provided kayaks and chairs and we relaxed in the river most of the weekend. Bobby was extremely friendly and helpful, and easily accessible if we needed anything. I highly recommend this property and hope to visit again very soon!!!"
