About the property

Sleeps 11. Close to Wine Country,Boerne,Bandera,Kerrville,Comfort,Frederickburg

SPECTACULAR, BREATH-TAKING, AMAZING! These are all words used to describe the panoramic Texas Hill Country views you will see from your 2 modern Hill Country cabins on 55 private acres just outside of Center Point, Texas. That's right - when you rent this property, you get BOTH cabins and don't have to share the property with another family.

For people wanting a true Texas experience, this is the place! Situated on 55 acres with elevations as high as 2000 ft (!!), experience the hill country at it's finest. Hills, wildlife and wide open spaces. What we all desire!

We have been renting properties on VRBO for 8 years, but this property trumps them all, in terms of uniqueness and serenity. Stoney Ranch is truly spectacular! The drive to the property alone, is one-of-a-kind.

Let’s start with the views. As you enter ‘Stoney Ranch’, you will pass through your own private, automatic gate and will drive to your 2 cabins on 55 private acres. Once you arrive at the cabins, prepare for your breath to be taken away when you see the miles of panoramic Hill Country views. There are NO better views of the Texas Hill Country. They are simply amazing (the pictures here do not do them justice. The best time of the day is sunset: sip on a cocktail, watch the deer graze at the deer feeder, and watch the most spectacular sunsets you’ve ever seen.

The cabins: There are 2 cabins built with a Hill Country flair, but loaded with the modern amenities you would expect from fabulous vacation rentals. First, the lower cabin. The lower cabin consists of the master suite (with king size bed, flat screen TV, newly renovated en-suite with spectacular tile shower, and large walk-in closet), the kitchen (with granite countertops, tile backsplash, gas range, garbage disposal, reverse osmosis, and all standard appliances), and the living area (with sleeper sofa, multiple sitting areas, 50” flat screen TV, DVD player, bar w/ bar stools, and fireplace). The lower cabin features a wrap-around porch with rocking chairs, multiple seating areas, hummingbird and bird feeders, and everyone’s favorite a HOT TUB! There is nothing more spectacular than soaking in a hot tub, watching wildlife, and enjoying the views. Now, to the upper cabin. The upper cabin consists of a living area (with bunk bed, sleeper sofa, sitting area, and flat screen TV), a bedroom (with 2 bunk beds and a sitting area), refrigerator, a laundry room (with washer and dryer), and a full bathroom. The upper cabin also sports a wrap-around porch and has an awesome outdoor living area as well. Both cabins have DVD players and the upper cabin has board games, cards, chess, checkers and more! It's a perfect set up - when the adults are ready to relax and unwind for the evening, they can enjoy the amenities of the lower cabin and send the kids up to the upper cabin, and they will be entertained for hours (just a few steps away)! Or, share s'mores and stories fireside with our brand new fire pit (installed March 2018).

The cabins literally sit on a mountain, and you will be captivated by endless views, and options for hiking and exploring. There's a trail that leads to the top of the hill with an amazing lookout point, as well as hiking in flatter areas with lower lookout points for those less intrigued by hiking.

This is a perfect destination for authors, musicians and artists, as well. We have already had requests from authors in the area who are looking for the perfect retreat for writing. If you're seeking serenity, you've found it.

Total bed sleeping capacity: 11

Lower Cabin Master: King-size bed(2)

Lower Cabin Living Room: Sleeper sofa (2)

Upper Cabin Living Area: Bunk Bed (2) & Sm Sleeper Sofa (1)

Upper Cabin Bedroom: 2 sets of Bunk Beds (4)

Next, the location. Stoney Ranch is located just 7 miles from downtown Centerpoint, which true to its name, is located in the center of the MOST popular Hill Country destinations:

Kerrville: 9 miles

Bandera: 15 miles

Comfort: 8 miles

Boerne: 21 miles

Fredericksburg: 28 miles

San Antonio: 48 miles

Bandera is the ‘Cowboy Capital of the World’, so spend a day there riding horses and honing your Cowboy skills. Comfort is known as the ‘Antique Capital of the World’, as travelers come from all over the world to wander through the antique shops and sip on wine at the local wineries. Kerrville is a Hill Country gem nestled on the Guadalupe River with big-city amenities and a small town feel. Boerne and Fredericksburg are 2 of the most-visited destinations in the Texas Hill Country, and one big reason is because Texas has the fastest growing wine country in the US, with more than 60 wineries located within 30 minutes of Stoney Ranch. Finally, if all of these Hill Country towns don’t keep you busy enough, make the short drive to San Antonio (River Walk, Alamo, Six Flags, Sea World, world-class shopping, parks, and tons more).

Whether you’re hiking and exploring Stoney Ranch, soaking in the hot tub, observing the local wildlife, watching the spectacular sunsets, photographing the panoramic views, exploring the local Hill Country towns, sampling local wine and cuisine, or visiting San Antonio, you WILL never find yourself bored, unless of course you choose to be.

Again, this is one of the coolest properties you’ll see on VRBO. Please let us know if you have any questions at all, and thank you for viewing our listing. Our calendar and rate information is up-to-date, and we try to respond to all inquiries within 3 hours.

Why Jeff or Kristen Wells chose Center Point

Literally, our jaws dropped when we saw this place. It's a one-of-a-kind property with TONS of character, and the perfect retreat when we all need to get away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your cabins. We had a wonderful time in the Hill Country. The cabins were the perfect getaway for our family. We enjoyed grilling out at night while we enjoyed the breeze and an opportunity to explore the stars and constellations in the sky. Everyday we planned an excursion. We visited Bandera, did a little shopping, and had dinner at the OST (great pies) and had lunch outdoors at the Rusty Wagon (awesome service & burgers - nice owners).

In Fredericksburg, we picked up some famous saves and my favorite candles at Circle E. We ate at Bejas Grill (delicious baja-style tacos overflowing with meat). In Kerrville, we kayaked for the first time at Scheiner Park - it was very peaceful and a perfect location for our first experience.

We spent a day in San Antonio visiting the Riverwalk and the Alamo, a day shopping in San Marcos, and of course we couldn't leave without visiting Schlitterbahn. We braved the Sky Coaster where we were pulled back to 190 ft & experienced a free fall going 80mph. Oh yeah, it was fun!

We loved all the animals and wildlife on the ranch. during our stay, we saw deer, porcupine, jack rabbits, goats, alpaca, peacocks and a llama. Very cool!

I also want to mention Thomas. I am not a cat person so I didn't think that we would see Thomas the Cat. I was up before everyone else and he came to visit me on the deck while I drank my morning coffee. It was very peaceful and quiet. Thomas was the perfect companion in the morning. He is a sweet and friendly cat. :)

Thanks for the use of your cabins. We made some great memories!

The pictures don't capture the magic!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished the most relaxing weekend! The pictures don't do it justice-the views from the porch, the breeze, the sunsets, the serene quiet make it the PERFECT get away from the city when you're looking to chill! You can laze the day away relaxing on the porch, go for a walk on the road or relatively flat trail above the cabins, or get the blood bumping with a hike up to the top of the mountain for a great workout and an extra incredible view. No nearby neighbors... can't overstate how quiet it is. Absolutely world class "Naptastic"!

There's a REALLY NICE TV in the living room and TVs in the master bedroom and in the upper cabin. Comfortable beds, well appointed kitchen, huge hot tub, fire pit... The place is absolutely great!

One thing to note: The driveway is steep and the rocks are loose, so you have to watch your step going up the hill to the trail. No big deal, just wear shoes with some tread and pay attention to where you're walking.

A great trip in all respects! Can't wait to return!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

If you need to get away and want the option of hiding out or driving short distances to hill country treasures, this is the place. Great dog friendly retreat with room to roam, hike, and spread out but with short drives to grocery store and quaint Hill Country town(s). Truly the best of both worlds.

We stayed at Stoney Ranch for 3 nights with our grandchildren. The views are amazing and cabins were great. They enjoyed the hot tub everyday also. We saw deer and porcupines!! The only suggestion I have is a ramp is needed for older people with walking problems. With no hand rails on the stairs leading up to first cabin I had to have help every time . It would have been great if we could have parked in carport but you can’t drive up in it. Otherwise it was wonderful. Awesome time had by us all. Thank you !

Owner's Response: Deborah, thank you for your feedback! The cabins are definitely not ideal for those that may have a difficult time walking up stairs. The carport can be used, but you really need a truck or larger SUV to drive up the hill. Thank you SO MUCH for choosing Stoney Ranch, and we hope to see you again in the future!

Very nice, with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful area, with great views. It was large enough to house my family and two of my children's families, so we could enjoy the time together. The directions to the place and all of the details were very clear. They are very organized. - Ron W.

Gorgeous Sunset / Glittering Stars / Picturesque Landscape Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were in search of a unique, family friendly retreat for a long weekend to celebrate a birthday and host a mini-family reunion where folks traveling from near and far would feel comfortable. This gem certainly exceeded our expectations. From the rustic family cabins that have been newly renovated, to the gorgeous outdoor views that were easy on the eye during the day and night, this homestead did not disappoint. We loved having a hot tub and rocking chairs on the wrap around oversized porch. It was wonderful to be able to eat indoor or outdoor depending on our mood. The cabin afforded remote charm, yet with WIFI and modern amenities we certainly had everything we needed at our finger tips. The cleanliness of the cabins were spectacular. The linens, towels and supplies were plentiful and we had to pack only our personal essentials as everything else you could need was provided. The kitchen and baths were immaculate, organized and roomy. Because it is a gated property, it was safe and secure and we never felt uncomfortable. It is very remote, but just a short drive to local towns and attractions. We loved being able to BBQ and cook food in the kitchen. I highly recommend this treasured escape. It definitely recharges your batteries with modern simplicity and style. Definitely consider this for your next escape! It won't disappoint and while the online pictures are spot on, they really do not do this property justice. It's a true find! I cannot wait to book our next stay!
