VRBO Bear stayed here:


Austin is a beautiful city with lots of events happening year-round. On my recent trip to central Texas, I went with a large group and stayed at the Rockin’ Y Ranch. Upon our arrival, Eric, the owner was on hand to give us a tour of the property and answer any questions we had during our stay.

The house sits on 30 acres and although you’ll feel like you’re in the country, it’s just a short drive to downtown. Lovely old trees and stone walls surround this farmhouse making it a wonderful secluded retreat. Walk to the ‘barn’ and you’ll find a party space for entertaining. Amenities include a pool table, ping pong table, foosball and lots of couches for comfortable seating. Outside are large fire pits, a beautiful pool and a stainless steel barbeque complete with an oven. It’s a spacious area and perfect for a large family or group reunion.

Inside, you’ll experience an ambience that takes you back-in-time. It reminded me of going to Grandma’s house. You’ll feel right at home, where you can put your feet up, relax and be carefree. You can be a kid again and run wild, enjoy the tire swing, jump in the pool, chase the chickens and play – nobody will yell at you for jumping on the beds either.

The furnishings are comfortable with an antique flair. There’s quite a variety of collections to explore just like Grandma’s house. You’ll find a rock collection, knickknacks from the Far East, a quilt from India, Mexican pottery - all mixed in with cowboy and American Indian artifacts. It’s a delightful combination of eclectic treasures! No snobby designer home or sterile hotel-like rooms, here. This place is the real thing- a well lived-in ranch farmhouse lovingly designed for comfort.

Come experience a slice of authentic Americana from the days when life was simpler. Bring the whole family – no matter what your age is, each guest can feel like a kid again. Then, gather round the large kitchen table and share stories of your adventures. Whether reminiscing on the good old days or recent escapades, your kids will love it and want to come back with their own kids someday.

Owner info

About the owner: The Rockin’ Y Ranch has been our family ranch since 1990. In 2007 we decided to open up this special property for other families and groups to enjoy. The ranch continues to be family run by Eric (dad) and Natalie (daughter). Eric is from Buffalo, Natalie is an Austin native. We look forward to welcoming you to the ranch and a truly unique Austin experience.

Why the Owner Chose Scenic Brook West, Austin, TX, USA:
Back in 1990 when we bought this unique property, before the boom of Austin growth, the Rockin' Y Ranch felt like it was really in the middle of nowhere! We've retained the peace and quiet, while Austin grew up around us. It's the best of both worlds - wide open spaces combined with easy access to the unique experiences downtown Austin has to offer.
