Why the Owner Chose Canyon Lake, TX, USA:
We were just going out to dinner with friends .... fell in love with the ranch... And just had to buy it. Canyon Lake Ranch is totally unique and offers guests estate luxury in a casual Texas country setting. Highly inspected, the property is first rate and provides all the amenities our guests deserve and need for ease of traveling. The location is superb as for those " kicking back" we are near the lake and rivers. Once, on the ranch, the rest of the world disappears and tranquilly reins. For those touring Texas - Austin, San Antonio and the hill country towns of Wimberley, Gruene and New Braunfels, San Marcos and Fredericksburg are all within easy reach. Schlittebaum, Natural Bridge Caverns, the Riverwalk, winery tours, discount malls, antiquing and of course, fishing, sailing, jet skiing and beaching are all part of the local scene. We fell in love, bought the ranch and offer it to you for special times.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Totally private, behind a locked ranch gate. Out of sight, in another world. Fresh air and breezes. Birds chirping, deer, wild turkey and armadillos. Roadrunner and lots of "Roger" Rabbits Near Fisher Hall Pet friendly - dogs and horses. Conveniently located, but not touristy. Each home is private located - though for reunions using more than one home, not more than a couple of minutes walk. Everything is provided so packing is simple... Just bring your bathing suit and food. An opportunity to hand feed Longhorns and take your picture with them. The dark sky required to really see stars at night. Totally private ranch and relaxed pace. Opportunity to unwind, talk, read and nap without interruption. Private hot tubs and chimineas. Starview Lodge- pool, huge stone fireplace and indoor sauna. Convenient to everything but off the beaten tourist path.
