About Diamond Y Properties
We are a locally owned, family business who enjoys investing in unique commercial and residential real estate. Often times, we partner with Design Visions, a local architectural firm to design and help us carry out the visions we foresee with certain projects. We also have a working ranch where we grow crops and where sheep, cattle, and donkeys call home. We love the hill country and believe in preserving what makes this area special. We enjoy the small town feeling of Fredericksburg and all that it has to offer!
Diamond Y Properties purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why Diamond Y Properties chose Fredericksburg
Diamond Y Ranch is very unique and beautiful. The original house on the ranch dates back to the 1800's. We worked hard to preserve the integrity of the original house and dogtrot cabins while trying to maintain a comfortable and updated living environment. The ranch is almost 600 acres, so individual guests can maintain privacy and peace, yet if they choose to travel with more people, then we can accommodate larger parties and have a common area equipped with a saloon, and pavilion to all meet and gather.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The original homestead was built in the 1800's. Everything has been completely redone and restored. Perfect for larger parties, family reunions, peaceful setting. Venue fees will apply depending on number of persons.

Beautiful, relaxing, just what we needed
This was a beautiful location it was the perfect place for our family to gather and enjoy some much needed and relaxed time together. We would definitely return to this property in the future.
Beautiful peaceful stay in the Hill Country
This was a gorgeous setting near Fredericksburg and Johnson City and Stonewall. The home was impeccably clean and comfortable and we had every amenity we might need. The grounds were beautiful and on our one cold day we enjoyed the shuffleboard and pool tables in the saloon. We accommodated three generations very nicely. No one wanted to leave!!!
What an amazing place, the owners have created a ranch oasis in the prefect location.
Great Property for a large family group
The property was very clean and updated. The saloon and child's playground were very nice. We were expecting more full size beds, but we may have misunderstood the layout. A lot of the beds were twin beds; which is great for the kiddos, but not great for more than 5 couples. Everyone in our party had a bed though, and it was very comfortable, clean, and appealing. We will most definitely stay here again.
Outstanding Texas hill country estate!
As I write this, I’m enjoying a cup of coffee on the porch of the dog trot cabin watching the sun rise over the pasture below. The entire four acres surrounding the estate are immaculate. There is not a fallen tree or dead limb on the ground in sight. As an architect, I appreciate the design and attention to detail of all of the buildings. They are all constructed in the early Texas style, but are completely modernized and are extremely well designed to complement each other. As I sit here I can easily imagine that we are homesteading.
We have 8 adults and 7 children in our party, and have ample room for everyone. The boys are sleeping in the bunkhouse and are “living the dream” as they put it. The girls are upstairs in the loft and loving it. It’s going to be hard to get them all to leave. I hope the next guest doesn’t mind watching the kids for us.
In short, we’ve found our place to stay in Fredericksburg. We’ll be coming back here as long as they’ll have us. We have rented numerous houses over the years, including several on Maui, and this one is right up there with the best! You won’t be sorry.
Beautiful home and setting for our spring break vacation!
The Ranch Home and Bunkhouse were well appointed and perfect for our three generations of family. It was so great to gather at the Saloon building for fun and games. The grandkids loved the playground and freedom to run on four acres of land. The owners were so wonderful and helpful. We will be back!
