Why Robbi Boone chose Hill Country

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.

What makes this estate unique

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.

Perfect Rental Property with Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our 5th Wedding Anniversary and we had an amazing experience! The owner greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed. The property is breath taking and the pictures do not do it justice! The pool and sauna were really nice amenities. Feeding the longhorns on the property was probably the best part of the weekend. If you're looking for Hill Country romance and/or privacy this is the place! Can't wait to come back!

Peaceful and relaxing gem in the TX Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

The Starview Lodge was just what my family was looking for as a long weekend getaway close to Austin. The ranch is so quaint and peaceful. The owners were incredible to work with, and the welcome basket they left was SO thoughtful! There is so much to do here, the pool, the basketball court, hot tub, feeding the Longhorns and lots of fun games inside the house too. We would definitely stay here again! Thank y'all for your hospitality - we'll be back soon!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 2 dogs, we don’t get to travel much as our kids are young and we hate the idea of being locked in a hotel room in the evening while the kids sleep. That is why we decided to look for a lodge/cabin to stay in, we are originally from Scotland and were spoilt as our family owned a beautiful cottage in the country that we got to stay in for free. So needless to say we are very picky.

The Canyon Lake Ranch rose to the challenge, it had the beauty that we missed in Scotland, the peace and quiet that we longed for and everything that a family needs to keep them entertained when trying to switch off from modern life. (Although they do have satellite and DVD player if that’s what you want). We stayed in the starlight lodge so that the kids could swim in the pool and play basketball on the half court. We got to sit under the stars with a glass of wine (that the owners had waiting for us, along with cookies, fruit and treats for the dogs). We all enjoyed a walk on the ranch and fed the log horns, my kids have not stopped talking about feeding them. I also enjoyed grilling outside on charcoal, which I don’t think I have done for about 10 years, man I forgot how good it tastes. This is a wonderful place to stay, I know that it is now our yearly retreat and I can’t wait to go back. Thank you for your hospitality and I look forward to Thanksgiving.
