Exactly what we needed. Fun. Clean. Easy. Great kitchen for cooking. Fun to hike. Great hospitality.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us!
We have rented so many ranches in last few years, enjoying the solitude & view. This is the BEST by far! Patty & Lane are humble about their place, it is perfect. Enjoy the fishing, swimming, views & her cooking!!
Bryan and his family were so much fun. The girls enjoyed their time with mom and dad. Good to see folks spend some quality time with their kids. Bryan even woke up at sunrise to do some fishing with an eager beaver girl. They caught all kinds of fish. Great people that we hope to see again some day. Fun Fun!
Wonderful Weekend Getaway!
We stayed at the ranch and it's always the best weekend getaway. From the food to the lodging to the hospitality of Lane and Pattii (it's like the Ritz but for hunters) there is always so much to see and do.
Thank you for such a great review! We love it when y'all come visit and looking forward to your next trip! Sallie is always so much fun and full of laughter. She is such a helper. Jumps right in there and helps anyone at anytime. We can't wait to see her again.
our two times at 5 F ranch
my wife and i hunted the 5 f ranch twice and had a great time on each visit.lodging,food,company where 2nd to none.hunting is strictly fair chase.some very nice animals on the property.we are looking forward to going back.
Wow!!! Amazing getaway
We were so impressed with this ranch from the moment we pulled up to the entrance, the beautiful animals along the way to the Lodge, and entering the impressive Lodge with all of the amenities desired in a home away from home. The cabins outside the Lodge have first class accommodations and are steps to the main Lodge. There was so much to do around the ranch from viewing the amazing animals, to fishing and swimming in the lake, and sitting out by the fire pit. We had such a great time and look forward to booking our next visit.
Jason and Cheryl, Every time you come it is a vacation for us too! Thank you for including us in your meals! We really appreciate the review and you guys too! Cannot wait until you come again - hopefully in the Fall! Blessings,
Lane and Pattii

About Lane Laning
Lane and Pattii have been part-owners and managers of the 5F Ranch for 14 years. Moving to the current location in 2008. They host hunters and guests year round all the while caring for the abundant wildlife on the ranch. They raise an estimated 120 whitetail deer which are for sale and breeding, a few released for hunting. They were residents of New Braunfels for 17 years prior to this and Lane sold computers for AT&T while Pattii raised their 3 children and led a bible study.
Lane Laning purchased this Lodge in 2008
Why Lane Laning chose Mullin
The owners, Mike and Cindy, sold their previous ranch and moved closer to the beautiful Hill Country with this property. It is covered in native pecan groves and a variety of oaks. It has the Blanket Creek running through the ranch and several ponds filled with fish. There are fields of native grasses with Blackbuck Antelope, Axis, Scimitar Horned Oryx and Whitetail grazing daily. Waterbuck live in the creek bottoms and Rams roam the property. A once thriving settlement of Blanket Creek left behind an historic cemetery from the mid to late 1800's. This ranch is an amazing respite from busy life full of fun, adventure and wildlife!
What makes this Lodge unique
Our place offers hummingbird viewing in season, wildlife safari's, amazing sunrises and sunsets, a view of the Milky Way on a dark night or thousands of fireflies in early summer at dusk. Animals roam free over the entire property with exception of our deer pens that contain the sweetest deer on earth. Come feed them by hand and pet a deer or in season hold and feed a fawn! Our pond is crystal clear and spring-fed where we enjoy cooling off with a swim on a hot summer afternoon or fishing at dusk. Sometimes we go hunting for arrowheads or look for remnants of the Blanket settlement that was nearby the historic cemetery. There is always something to do and not enough time to do it in. Many nights we drink a glass of wine around the campfire and tell stories. Our back porch is huge and offers a bbq, an electric smoker, a sporting clay wobble unit and a view for miles! Maybe we will go to the gun range and shoot pistols at any one of 5 different types of targets or sight in our rifles at the 50 or 100 yard targets. Usually every afternoon we take a tour of the ranch with a cocktail and view the abundant wildlife as the sun sets in our Polaris Ranger or Kawasaki Mule. After dark there is a beautiful pool table, card table, indoor fireplace, large bar and TV in the Lodge gathering area. This ranch is a complete vacation - there is no reason to leave and you won't want to!
