About the Property
Suite, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-5)
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.
The Marquis de Lafayette was appointed by Louis XVI to oversee French assistance to revolutionary military efforts during the war of independence. He was present in 1781 when American troops won the war by forcing Cornwallis' army to surrender at Yorktown (French warships were instrumental in preventing a British evacuation by sea). Lafayette was well liked after the war and was hailed as a hero in the U.S. for the rest of his life. A gregarious man, we thought it best dub our two bedroom suite the 'The Marquis de Lafayette Suite' in his honor. The suite is on the second floor of the Arc de Texas and has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with a kitchenette, 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. You only need to pack your overnight bag, we have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The suite sleeps 4-5 people with the use of the leather sofa in the living room. One bedroom has a king bed and the other has two twin beds (all linens provided).
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 4 bedroom/2 ½ bath suite that sleeps 12-14 (“The Louis XIV 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!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: 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).
