About the Property

Lodge, 7 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

Come enjoy our 'adventure retreat ranch' in the heart of Texas! Your vacation in the hill country begins with relaxing on our massive, wrap around porch overlooking the crystal clear San Saba River. You'll have plenty of space to explore on our 750 acres including hiking, fishing, or photo safari. Take advantage of the peace and quiet with a picnic on the banks of the river. Spa services are also available for those who need more R&R. Like a little more action? Practice your skills at our skeet shooting or rifle range. The ranch is also a great place for a private destination wedding. We are located in the center of Texas, just 10 minutes from Brady and just 45 minutes from everyone's favorite small town, Fredericksburg.

Our main Lodge is a 5,000 sq.ft, 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath log cabin on the San Saba River. Our 4 wood burning fireplaces keep you warm in the winter and our wrap around porch beckons you to stay for hours. This home has 2 full size kitchens, fully equipped for you to do your own cooking, or we can cater your stay. This cabin can sleep up to 15 comfortably. We also have another cabin available on the ranch, which sleeps an additional 10 people (VRBO listing #367671) - as well as a barndominium and event room which sleeps 8 more. Please visit our website or contact us for information on our Bunkhouse.

Our ranch is perfect for family reunions, family vacations, church retreats, corporate retreats and weddings. We have something for everyone!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: My wife and I are the full-time managers of the Ranch where the two cabins and the event barn are located. We are in love with the Texas hill country and in particular the rolling hills of the San Saba River valley. We both have a love for people and sharing this place and our hospitality with them is our top priority. God has blessed us with this place and our hope is to share that blessing as often as possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Although there are several unique features on this property the two words that stand out most when people describe their experiences on the ranch are probably 'quiet' and 'adventurous'. With 750 acres to yourselves to explore and no civilization for miles this really is a place to pause and to rest., while at the same time to fish, hike, explore, camp, picnic or take a swim in the river. No matter what age you are there is something for everyone.
