Over 300 acres to explore including a private lake, a spring fed goldfish pond high in the hills, and beautiful views everywhere you turn. This is the perfect place for vacationing families. You can hike, swim, fish (catch and release), or kayak on a private lake on the property. The lake was formed by damming up a spring fed creek, therefore the water is cool year round. There are 2 fire pits and a barbeque pit on the property for your enjoyment. Get away from it all, with the option of staying connected through wi-fi and cable television. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a fully functional kitchen. Madrone Hills Ranch is 4 miles from Lost Maples State Park, about 16 miles away from the Frio River in Leakey, and about a 35 minute drive from Garner State Park.

The ranch house is comfortable and well stocked, on a lovely piece of land with a shady swimming hole. We loved seeing the stars, fishing off the pier and hiking the scenic hills. The beds were so comfortable. We watched the sun set over the hills on the screened porch every night. The location is quiet and peaceful but not too far from the Lost Maples store. Veronica is a very responsive and kind host. We look forward to coming back soon.
Spacious and perfect!
We loved staying here!! The house was very spacious and perfect for our family! The land is beautiful and the little lake on the property was so fun to kayak and fish in! We made memories here that we will remember forever!
And it’s kind of nice that there is no cell phone service! ;)
Veronica was super helpful, and a great host! I highly recommend staying here!
The house was very roomy, clean and heavily supplied. We wished there had been more water but little to no rain in the area made that difficult. Overall, we had a blast. We were 3 families, 6 adults, 4 teens and 3 kiddos. We played, hiked, cooked and took the short drive to Garner one day. Veronica was very helpful; she checked on us and answered our questions. We couldn’t find the goldfish pond, maybe next year... Overall, great property and priced well.
Beautiful and relaxing getaway
Our family had an outstanding time. There was plenty of room for our littles and pre-teens to run and flip and play without running over each other and all the windows allowed us to keep track of all the happenings both in and outside. We enjoyed the private lake and the hiking that we were able to partake in all without having to leave three property. My family is still talking about it and we hope to return for more fun.
Beautiful home on spacious property with amazing spring-fed private lake
We had 4 adults and 6 kids vacation for a long weekend at this amazing property. The home is very nice and could sleep 12 easily. The private lake is awesome. It's cold and deep off the dock. There were tons of perch and bass. We didn't get to walk the property as it was a little too warm and we stayed in the water as much as possible. I bet in the fall or spring it would be wonderful to walk around and enjoy. Kids enjoyed strong wifi signal and loved watching shows on television.
I highly recommend for a great weekend away out in the Texas Hill Country. It's an easy drive from San Antonio too. You won't be disappointed.
Great place to relax
Owner was very accommodating.
