About the Property
4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 12 to 14
Located on 165 acres of Texas Hill Country remoteness and sliced through by the James River, the Bar None River Ranch appeals to the outdoor enthusiast who desires privacy. The ranch is located in southern Mason County in the Hill Country, outside of the historic small towns of Mason and Fredericksburg. The James River runs through the middle of the property. The ranch now has fiber internet making it rhe perfect place for a corporate retreat.
In the spring, wildflowers abound. In the summer you can cool down in one of the largest springs chutes in the hill country. In the fall just enjoy the crystal clear star filled skies. In the winter the outdoor fireplace will keep you toasty warm. We are only a few hundred yards away from the Eckert Bat Cave one of the true wonders of the Texas Hill Country.
This is an actively managed wildlife ranch. We seldom mow the main field that surrounds the skeet range as it abounds in wildflowers and is a sanctuary for horn toads and small ground birds. So bring apprioriate footwear and clothing.
Watch the sunset from the 10' wide 360 degree wrap around porch or one of the private picnic tables overlooking the river.
There is a nice pavillion that is great to hold an outdoor classroom and our WI-FI is believe are not high speed fiber!
There is a full skeet range with a high and low houses equipped to throw clay targets. Plus a full rifle range out to 700 yards. We also have a small bermed pistol range.
The James River has several small pools were bass and perch can be caught and released.
Located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country the place is just across the James River from the Nature Conservacy's Eckert Bat Cave. The gate is a waist high rock with a cattle gate painted like a Texas Flag. The gate is locate about 100 feet past the rock corral going away from the river on the south side away from Mason. The property is about 50 minutes outside of Fredricksberg and 20 minutes outside of Mason.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why Mason, TX, USA:
This property has been in the family for nearly 40 years. The lodge was built for family reunions and family enjoyment in 2003. It is very nice for quite weekends, family/friends get together, corporate retreats, training events when you want to do your own thing and not be bothered by anyone.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The 'Goodnight Loving' spring flows at over 400 gallons a minute has cut a chute through the limestone for some 100 yards and makes the perfect place to cool down in the summer even on the hottest of days. Picnic benches over look the James River the perfect place to watch the sunset and Texas stars like no other place.

Just a two minute drive puts you in Salt Branch were 'Old Yeller' fought the herd of hogs in Fred Gipsons 'Old yeller' There is virtually no light pollution and the stars are spectacular on a clear night down at the river.
