Overview

About the property

Suite, 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths (Sleeps 12-14)

Lighthouse Hill Ranch is situated in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on 2,001 acres. With this much land it is your own private park to enjoy. The ranch consists of rolling hills, incredible 50 mile views, and has one of the highest point in Blanco County. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife on the ranch from cattle, bird watching, deer, turkey, coyotes, armadillos, jackrabbits, doves and variety of other animals.

Rental of any of our houses or suites provides you access to the entire ranch (both tracts), which has numerous springs, over 4,000 feet of clear rock-bottom creek to swim and tube in (and including a unique creekside hot tub and waterfall grotto), 8 ponds to fish, a seasonal waterfall and miles of trails for riding ATVs, bike riding, hiking or riding your own horse.

Louis XIV was the most extravagant, sumptuous, and luxurious king in French history. He moved the court to Versailles, which is still today one of the grandest palaces in the world. Like Louis XIV himself, our “Louis XIV Suite” is also the most extravagant, sumptuous and luxurious suite in the Arc de Texas. The suite occupies the entire third floor of the Arc de Texas and has 4 bedrooms, 2 half baths with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, central air/heat and great fire pit to sit and enjoy the nighttime sky in the Hill Country. You can also use the elevator to go to the rooftop terrace to enjoy your cocktail while taking in the arresting 360 degree views. What is stunning about this suite is the views! There are no less than 18 large square windows encircling the entire suite. The suite has views in every direction. You only need to pack your overnight bag, we have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The suite sleeps 12-14 people with the use of the leather sofas in the living room. One bedroom has a king bed, another has a king bed and the other two bedrooms have two queen beds (all linens provided).

The kitchen is furnished with coffeemaker, pots, pans, stove, refrigerator, microwave, glassware, dishes, silverware, linens, serving bowls, cooking utensils, misc. spices, knife block, toaster, etc.

The living area has a leather embossed furnishings. You can put your feet up and read a good book, watch DirectTV with movie channels, or head into town and rent a DVD to watch on the television. There is no telephone but there is an internet connection in the house if you really must stay in touch with those everyday hassles!

There is a large fire pit with 'rocking' chairs that you can sit in and enjoy a great fire. There's plenty of wood on the ranch - burn all you want! There is six tables with chairs up on the rooftop terrace that you can use to have a meal outside. In addition, we also have a propane grill for outdoor cooking.

If you wish to bring your dog or your horse we have accommodations for them as well. There is a fenced area near the building for your dog and they are welcome in the suite. We ask that you keep them off the furniture and beds and you are required to bring a crate to house them in when you are away from the suite. For horses, we have pipe fenced pastures with a water trough & feed trough (these pastures are located near the Red House). There is also a run-in and a tack area to keep your tack and feed dry.

In addition, we have 3 other suites in the Arc as well as 6 other homes on the ranch available for rental. In the Arc de Texas we have a 2 bedroom/1 bath suite that sleeps 4-5 (“The Marquis de Lafayette Suite”), a 1 bedroom/1bath suite that sleeps 4-5 (“The Joan of Arc Suite”) and we have a “hotel” suite with 1 bath that sleeps 2 (“The Napoleon Suite”). The 6 homes that we have are a 3 bedroom/2 bath home that sleeps 8-10 ('The Grey House'), a 3 bedroom/2 bath home that sleeps 10-11 (‘The Brown House’), a 3 bedroom/loft with 2 baths that sleeps 10-12 ('The Green House'), our signature home a 4 bedroom/4 bath four story tower that sleeps 9-15 ('The Lighthouse'), a 3 bedroom with a loft and 2 ½ bath that sleeps 6-10 (‘The Log Home’), and a 3 bedroom/1bath home that sleeps 6-7 (“The Red House”).

We look forward to having you at Lighthouse Hill Ranch!

About Kathy Meyertons

My wife and I purchased the ranch in 2004 for our enjoyment and for our 4 kids. It is absolutely the best purchase we've ever made. We love going to the ranch and swimming/tubing in the creek, fishing in the ponds, riding mountain bikes and ATVs on the trails, hiking the woods, and just generally enjoying a campfire with lots of stars on a clear night.

Because the ranch has one of the highest point in the county, we can see for 50 miles on clear days - and there's lots of clear days in this part of the country. There are 6 horses and 3 longhorns (along with a herd of 'regular' cattle) - it's fun to feed these animals, and our dog loves to chase the big animals (that is, until they get irritated and turn and chase him).

Hill Country Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in the Louis XIV suite at the Arc de Texas and were planning a return trip before we even left. Lighthouse Hill Ranch is one-of-a-kind: top-notch appointments in the units; gorgeous pool area; some of the best views in the hill country (especially from the roof); close proximity to wineries, breweries, and parks; and a giant ranch to hike/drive through. Kathy is a wonderful host and made sure that all our needs were met. 5 stars are not enough to do this incredible rental justice.

Surprise birthday for my Fiance. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed a ride around the ranch, the grotto, wine tasting at nearby winery, hot tub and evening fire-fantastic! Rooftop on a cool night with all stars, spectacular.
