Property description

Cruise into the Hill Country over the Devils Backbone on Ranch Road 32 out of San Marcos, Texas. Here you’ll find Fischer, Texas, and this updated 1950’s rock ranch house. An amazing vacation value, it’s a centrally-located launching pad perfect for enjoying all the Hill Country has to offer.

This house was originally a duplex built to house workers on this 2500 acre ranch. Now nestled on 30 acres, it offers privacy with a full kitchen, a living room, two bedrooms and two newly remodeled baths. You can sit outside beneath the oaks and watch the birds feeding at the feeders.

Just north is Wimberley, Texas. Wimberley offers many attractions from swimming holes, like Blue Hole, to Wimberley Market Days, shopping on the Square, the Corral Outdoor Movie Theatre, local vineyards, playhouses, etc. From Wimberley, the live music capital city of Austin is just 40 minutes north.

Drive 15 minutes south and be at Potters Creek Park on Canyon Lake where you have countless activities such as boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, or diving from the cliffs by the dam. Or check out the nearby Guadalupe River for tubing, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, or fly fishing. Hit Gruene for music, dining, shopping, or wine tasting, wrap up the evening at the Whitewater Amphitheater on the shores of the Guadalupe. Don’t forget New Braunfels, with its world famous 65 acre waterpark (Schlitterbahn). While you’re out that way, explore the caves at Natural Bridge Caverns or head to San Antonio and discover the Riverwalk and the many attractions Ole San Antone has to offer.

Travel west for 10 miles and you find yourself in Blanco, Texas. Here you will find Blanco State Park with the Blanco River running through it. Check out the Real Ale Brewery or shop and eat around the square. From here you can travel to Luckenbach and listen to some live music or browse Fredericksburg’s Trade Days. Don’t forget to sample the many wineries or the Wildflower Center off HWY 290.

Head back east and you are back in San Marcos where you can tube the San Marcos River or browse the 140 shops in their famous Outlet Mall.

Did you bring horses? Keep them next to your lodging in an enclosed acre with horse fencing and shelter. This area is away from any other livestock on the ranch. Ride the trails located on Canyon Lake or in Pedernales State Park.
