Amazing overall experience! Beautiful house inside as well as outside

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by how beautiful and relaxing the house was. The amenities were a huge plus from the beautiful kitchen with the surround sound and television, and also the gorgeous firepit was prepared for us and ready for us to use .

My brother and friends had a great time.

Thank you

Rustic and spacious with many imentaties to enjoy over a weekend stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with friends. Each room was unique and very comfortable. We enjoyed the porch views, outdoor spaces, horses and deer roaming around the house. The property is rustic and updated with essential outdoor imentaties like satellite TV/stereo with Bose surround sound near the outdoor kitchen, fire pit and pool, Wi-Fi green egg, pizza oven and beatiful pool area. Overall great place to get away and close to the amazing city of San Marcos. We made a quick trip to wonderworld, some went to the football game and we still had plenty of time at the ranch. We look forward to going back.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 guys rented the house for a long weekend to celebrate a buddy getting married and this place was the perfect place to rent. Awesome pool, even better outdoor kitchen and entertainment area, and tons of comfortable outdoor seating. The outdoor set-up alone makes this place great.

The houses were well kept and very comfortable. The main house was a little tight for 10 guys to congregate for breakfast and coffee but with so much outdoor space it didn't matter.

Judie, the ranch manager, was great to work with. Very friendly and responsive. The dogs that live at the property were awesome too. They were very friendly and enjoyed playing with us by the pool.

Proximity to San Marcos is great. Close enough for quick food/drink runs, lots of restaurants around, but just far enough to make you feel like you're out in the country...and no neighbors.

I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great place for a large group.

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the 40. We celebrated my husbands birthday with all our kids & grandkids. The main house is lovely-very spacious & beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed. Our grandsons loved the bunkhouse, our son enjoyed the gun room & we all loved the pool!! The out door cooking area is awesome!!! We did all of our cooking out there & there was plenty of room for all of us to eat together. The grandkids really enjoyed the swing & loved the 3 dogs (Frankie, Charlie & Macey) who were extremely friendly and acted like we were family😊. Bought a bag of apples and fed the horses every evening -fun for all. The huge ice machine was a blessing!! Would highly recommend this home for family get together . Thanks for sharing it with us.
