About the Property

3 houses, 7 bedrooms, Sleeps 17

This is a private guest ranch located in the Texas Hill Country's San Saba River Valley. There are 3 houses on the property with 4 kitchens and tons of great activities including a shooting range, fishing, shuffleboard, poker table, fire pit, hiking and ATV trails. .

The main house was build in 2005 and boasts upscale cowboy chic décor. For those with a discerning eye, there are many one of a kind features found throughout the house. As you enter the house, you'll find boot prints and horse show prints along the cement floor, a red stag horn chandelier made from sheds found on the ranch, whitetail deer horns serving as curtain rods, bovine leather curtains in the master,  original Indian blankets decorating the walls, all custom cut cedar wood accents and molding, custom made cedar beds, horse bridal and bit toilet paper holders, and much more. Many a pair of cowboy boots have scooted across the 117 year old wood floor that once graced the dance hall in Sherry Springs, Texas and now serves as the floor in the main room of the Game Room. A 1903 porcelain stove still works and proudly bakes the Thanksgiving turkey and dressing each year. The Game Room sports a shuffleboard table, pool table, darts, and a variety of signs that create an ambiance and experience that is sure to make you smile - and maybe even laugh out loud.

The ranch is a wonderful place to vacation for a large family or even multiple families. With so many activities available it really is a vacation unto itself.
