About the Property
The Lone Star is 4 bdrm/3 bath with creek frontage and bluff views
This is not a party house and weddings are not allowed.
Gaze at the numerous constellations. We have horseshoes, badminton and volleyball, as well as darts and ping pong on the porch and skittles, a fast paced game of pins and tops. Our guests are welcome to fish(catch and release only), hike up and down the creek embankments to see the caves and spring that feeds our creek, or paddle board and raft. There is a rock patio above that has a table set for those who wish to picnic outdoors and a swing hanging from a tree that calls for a good book to read. If you are interested in a more challenging way to have fun, we have neighbors who are experienced rock climbers who can provide you with equipment and instruction at whatever level you wish.
This newly furnished Texas farmhouse with handsome wide planked hardwood flooring is equipped to handle up to 9 people with four bedrooms and three full baths. All of the mattresses are brand new pillowtops. Two of the spacious bedrooms are up with a full bath. There is a queen in one bedroom with a huge chest of drawers and a rocker. The other room has two twins and a daybed to sleep three. There is also a loft area with a sofa and flat screen t.v. Downstairs are two more queen bedrooms that each have their own bath. The master also has a seperate jacuzzi tub with double sinks and a shower. There is a flat screen t.v. in the large master bedroom as well as a chair and ottoman and a large chest of drawers.
The great room has soaring two story ceilings with beams and a fireplace, ample reclining consoles and sofas. A large flat screen hd t.v with dvd player is next to the fireplace, with lots of games and puzzles for a rainy day! There are two tables in the dining area that will seat up to ten people. The kitchen is updated with all stainless appliances and granite countertops. It also has a breakfast bar, a pantry room and beyond that, the utility room with new washer/dryer for your use. We have supplied the kitchen generously with dishes, cookery, small appliances and spices for your need.
On the porches are rockers on the front of the house and teak sofas and a table that seats six with fabulous views.There are adirondack chairs close to the bluff with amazing views of the water, as well. We can also make arrangements for porchside massage therapy and yoga with a mobile therapist from the Austin area. There are so many places and ways to relax. Your hardest decision will be where and what!

It is within 15 miles of Lake Travis where there are numerous water sports available and the renowned Oasis Restaurant. Within 11 miles is the Beecave Galleria that hosts great shopping and numerous upscale restaurants. Nearby, we have Krausse Springs, a stunning natural pool and waterfall for tubing and swimming.Water skiing, boat rentals or guide fishing is available on Lake Travis. Hamilton Pool, another breath taking swimming lagoon under a waterfall, is a short distance away in Dripping Springs, as is Pedernales State Park. There are great local restaurants with live music (check out Angel's) and three fantastic vineyards in the Spicewood area. If you prefer golf, there are several courses, nine and eighteen hole. Mobile spa treatments can be arranged for our guests on site, as well as rock climbing off the bluffs of our creek with experienced repellers. Fredericksburg is just one hour away for a day trip to shop and eat German food and one of the best barbeque spots is in Driftwood 38 minutes away, The Salt Lick.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are Houstonians who have owned other vacation rentals, including The Bootstrap at Round Top. We love sharing the natural resources of our properties. The creek, the bluffs, the variety of wildlife and wild flowers that God has so richly blessed us with will hopefully allow our guests the opportunity to relax and unwind from the daily grind and big city living.
Why the Owner Chose Lick Creek Ranch, TX, USA:
We have always loved the Hill Country and raised our two boys there going to water properties from Hunt to New Braunsfels. This beautiful, secluded home is so well situated with great places to go in any direction any time of year.If you want football games and 6th street musicians, you are 30 min. from Austin. If you want natural spring fed water holes for swimming , there are two very nearby. We love the wineries , especially, as we have traveled to the California wine country several times. These Texas wineries are Napa with a Texas twist and well worth exploring! Check out the local eateries, Poodies, J-5 Steakhouse, La Cabana and, our favorite , Angel's Icehouse. We adore the house with the rock fireplace, great bedroom arrangement and the wide porches with the stunning view of the creek.The peace and sounds of nature soothe our souls!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Lone Star first attracted our attention when we saw the running and deep creek below. We had looked for the right property for two years, but the hill country drought had affected all the waterfront properties we saw. This was an oasis in the desert! The spring, that feeds it is audible from our backyard and keeps this creek full and clear! We were also drawn to the deep porches and the rock fireplace that soars two stories up. Two bedrooms downstairs and two up were exactly what we were looking for and the updating completed our list. It was perfect, plus the location so close to Austin and only 3 hours from Houston couldn't be beat.
