amazing sunsets, fishing, picture-perfect ranch retreat

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful ranch will leave you with fond memories spent with friends and family in a warm, comfortable country escape. Texas wildflowers and tall grass greet you upon arrival, where you follow a long gravel path into the sprawling property full of mature trees, ponds and wide-open space that leads up to a large custom home. Our family enjoyed fishing, exploring the grounds, visiting horses and relaxing on the wrap-around porch in comfortable rocking chairs. Our children continue to swap stories of catching bass and other well-stocked fish, playing games, sharing meals at picnic tables overlooking a pond, swimming and making memories. It's an ideal place for a family reunion, weekend with friends or girlfriends. The house boasts open living space with several private areas that fill with natural light through the many windows that overlook a large pond. One of our favorite places was the spacious kitchen adorned with custom barnwood and eclectic accents, two refrigerators and an excess of countertop space for meal prep and entertainment. We also enjoyed a large bedroom and bathroom downstairs that allowed privacy from the children playing or sleeping upstairs. Comfortable bedrooms and a loft area upstairs with additional bedrooms provide ample space for rest and relaxation. There was also an additional bedroom suite built for privacy from the main living areas that offered a private bath and reading area. Teak chairs and tables offer options for seating outdoors and a covered patio area complete with a stainless table block, grill and benches. We will be back to make more memories with our children and friends!

wonderful place to unwind and entertain friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here in the country. This retreat is truly private and it's remote and quiet. The farm road connects the tiny towns of New Ulm and Cat Spring, this place is about halfway between them. We traveled with two kids and met friends with kids. The place was perfect for strolls with a young crew or adults could walk wooded trails for hours of alone time. The kitchen is generous and pleasant to use and we enjoyed big meals as well as snacking and grilling (nice grill outside). There are grocery stores about half an hour away and some comfort food serving restaurants in nearby towns. However, since no trip is quick with the kids, we opted to spend our time enjoying food we made on the deck and spent time fishing the lake steps from the house.

The house has a playroom upstairs and it was great to have the luxury of space where the kids had a place for to entertain themselves and we had a beautiful (and separate) living area where the adults could sit around and talk. We could have watched movies or cable TV in either spot.

In late May we picked some wild flowers to enjoy inside. There's a lot to observe besides walking the private trails, as the owners keep horses, and there was a crew making hay, and cows are kept at the front of the property. We really felt like we were in the country - and being at the ranch house was a fantastic way to unwind.

The way the bedrooms and bathrooms are configured, there are three separate spaces for families or couples to have personal space in the morning or evenings - we didn't feel like we were on top of each other because the house design afforded a lot of privacy.

We look forward to the next time we can get together and enjoy the country. I imagine that this would be a great spot for family reunions, either side of a wedding party, couples vacations, Round Top week shoppers, and even small meetings or retreats.

Quintessentially Texan. A Spectacular Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place is so ideally Texan - expansive property with large lake for fishing and swimming, big house with beautiful and comfortable furnishings, huge patio/deck with perfect sunset views, long wooded trails and rolling hay fields... It's a heavenly slice of all that Texas has to offer. The owners anticipate our every need (and want), keeping things clean and well-stocked. We have visited this spot more than once and hope to return soon!
