About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bathrooms In Rustic Luxury Lodge

The lodge is five thousand square feet of rustic luxury, perched on a hill overlooking pecan trees and lush fields where Elk wander less than a hundred yards from the lodge. It’s a log cabin with four master bedrooms, each has a queen and twin bed and it’s own private bath. The rooms are spacious enough to accommodate a group of seasoned outdoorsmen, but elegant enough to pamper couples and families wanting a weekend getaway. In the great room, vaulted ceilings and slate floors accompany leather sofas and chairs great for conversation or watching the flat screen tv. The kitchen is a cooks dream with granite counters, wolfe range, sub zero fridge and warming drawer. It is open to the great room and has a breakfast bar with stools so everyone can keep you company while you prepare the meals. On the other side of the Great Room is the bar area with two mini fridges, ice maker, sink and bar with more stools. And, in the cool of night, under a canopy of stars, you can sit out by the fire pit right next to the lake and tell all your fish stories by the dancing fire and the howl of the coyotes.

About Trina Beshears

Ken and Trina have been together 30 years, the last 17 in the hospitality business. We live on a 1200 acre working ranch raising cattle, horses and whitetail deer. We have 3 kids, Jackson (21), Hannah (20) and Sarah (18). Our free time is spent traveling, rodeoing, hunting and enjoying our family.

Trina Beshears purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Trina Beshears chose Hamilton

Off the beaten path yet close to the major cities of DFW and Austin. The well appointed lodge has been featured in multiple publications. Wildlife galore is found here with fishing off the back porch. Peaceful and quiet.

What makes this lodge unique

The ranch is across the street from the world famous Circle T Arena, home to all things western equestrian, the Inn at Circle T, award winning hotel and Crossfire steak house.

Beautiful property...

  • 5 of 5

We had the whole family out there for 3 nights and head a great time. The lodge is perfect for a big extended family, and the animals are amazing. It was cold, so fishing was tough but we managed to get one. We really enjoyed that there was a little town within an 5 min drive to get missing essentials. thanks again!!

Beautiful property and lodge

  • 5 of 5

Little Bear Creek Ranch was the perfect setting for our little college reunion. All 4 families had their own bed/bath suite, which was a huge plus. We caught fish, kayaked, spotted wildlife, grilled out and enjoyed the fire pit. Highly recommend and look forward to hopefully booking again soon!

Great Place to Get Away

Good for a family and/or group of friends to get away and relax. The Owners were very accommodating, the place is very well kept, and overall a great place to relax.
