Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

Lighthouse Hill Ranch is situated in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on 2,001 acres. With this much land it is your own private park to enjoy. The ranch consists of rolling hills, incredible 50 mile views, and has one of the highest point in Blanco County. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife on the ranch from cattle, bird watching, deer, turkey, coyotes, armadillos, jackrabbits, doves and variety of other animals.

Rental of any of our houses provides you access to the entire ranch (both tracts), which has numerous springs, over 4,000 feet of clear rock-bottom creek to swim and tube in (and including a unique creekside hot tub and waterfall grotto), 8 ponds to fish, a seasonal waterfall and miles of trails for riding ATVs, bike riding, hiking or riding your own horse.

We have 5 houses available to rent on the property and no two houses are within a 1/2 a mile of each other. 'The Brown House' is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch house with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, central air/heat and great fire pit to sit and enjoy the nighttime sky in the Hill Country. You only need to pack your overnight bag, we have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The house sleeps 10-11 people. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the bunk room has 2 bunk beds (twin over full).

The kitchen is furnished with coffeemaker, pots, pans, stove, refrigerator, microwave, glassware, dishes, silverware, linens, serving bowls, cooking utensils, misc. spices, knife block, toaster, etc.

The living area has a leather furnishings and a foosball table for your enjoyment. You can put your feet up and read a good book, watch DirectTV with movie channels, or head into town and rent a DVD to watch on the television. There is no telephone but there is an internet connection in the house if you really must stay in touch with those everyday hassles!

There is a side porch and a large fire pit with 'rocking' chairs that you can sit in and enjoy a great fire. There's plenty of wood on the ranch - burn all you want! There is also a table and six chairs that you can use to have a meal outside. In addition, we also have a charcoal Weber grill for outdoor cooking (charcoal provided).

If you wish to bring your dog or your horse we have accommodations for them as well. Around the house is a fenced area that you can use to contain your dog, and near the house is a paddock with a water trough & feed trough. There is also a run-in and a tack area to keep your tack and feed dry.

In addition, we have four other homes on the ranch available for rental. We have a 3 bedroom/2 bath home that sleeps 8-10 ('The Grey House'), a 3 bedroom/loft with 2 baths that sleeps 10-12 ('The Green House'), our signature home a 4 bedroom/4 bath 4 story tower that sleeps 9-15 ('The Lighthouse'), and a 3 bedroom with a loft and 2 ½ bath that sleeps 6-10 (‘The Log Home’).

We look forward to having you at Lighthouse Hill Ranch!

About Kathy Meyertons

My wife and I purchased the ranch in 2004 for our enjoyment and for our 4 kids. It is absolutely the best purchase we've ever made. We love going to the ranch and swimming/tubing in the creek, fishing in the ponds, riding mountain bikes and ATVs on the trails, hiking the woods, and just generally enjoying a campfire with lots of stars on a clear night.

Because the ranch has one of the highest point in the county, we can see for 50 miles on clear days - and there's lots of clear days in this part of the country. There are 2 horses and 3 longhorns (along with a herd of 'regular' cattle) - it's fun to feed these animals, and our dog loves to chase the big animals (that is, until they get irritated and turn and chase him).

Room with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend there, it just was not long enough. The home was clean and comfortable. We loved the firepit out back, it was the best in the cool evenings. It was nice to sit around the fire roast marshmellows & hang out with family. We took our ATV and road around the ranch trails & had the best time. Trails are well marked on the map. Liked the fact that within a short drive you could go eat or shop in Johnson City or Fredricksburg. Perfect location. Property manager very helpful & made the reservation prcess a very good experience for us. WE WILL BE BACK!!

Beautiful get away in the Texas Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lighthouse Ranch over a long weekend in March and had a wonderful time. The house is clean, fully equipped and comfortable. I really enjoyed sitting around the campfire at night and watching the stars. It was so quiet and peaceful. I also enjoyed exploring the property, especially the walk to the creek. I highly recommend this as a place to get away from it all.
