About Jen Harwood
John and I are blessed to get to live on and be the caretakers of such a beautiful place. John's dad and mom first started coming to the area for vacation back in the 60's. They fell in love with the property Circle H Ranch sits on and decided to make it theirs. John started the business Circle H Ranch, Inc. shortly after graduating college and has successfully run an exotic animal breeding operation for over the last 20 years. The lodge was renovated and made available to guests back in the 80's. Over the years thousands of guests have come through and shared our little slice of heaven with us. We hope you too will get to come for a visit soon. Best Wishes, Jen and John

Why Jen Harwood chose Leakey
Experience a one of a kind vacation at this exotic animal ranch. The lodge is nestled among the hills and perfect for the ultimate family vacation in the hill country. Why fight the crowds and noise at the river when you can have your very own secluded natural spring-fed pool that keeps a consistent water level year round. If you care to venture out to the river, it's only a 10 minute drive down the road.
What makes this House unique
Not only are you getting a great house with all the amenities, you also get to experience an exotic vacation right here in Texas. Your kids will love to see and learn about the many different species of exotic hoofstock that we have on the ranch. In addition, we have great hiking and glorious colors on our hills when the seasons change.

Slice of Paradise!
We had such a wonderful time! John and Jen were so accommodating and the property is absolutely breath taking! There was plenty for everyone to do (ages 16-73 were with us). This is a MUST GO location! We will certainly be back!
So happy to hear y'all loved Circle H. We look forward to seeing you back. ;)
Great trip for family
Used this trip to get together with family and we had a great time. The property is beautiful. We spent time at the pool, in the cantina, hiking and just hanging out. It was awesome and we hope to make a return visit.
Family trip to frio
We had a great time. Enjoyed riding our mule ATV to see animals feeding. Adults enjoyed cantina and bbq patio area. Grand kids enjoyed playing games in the yard. It was a good family get together.
Thank you for the review . :) We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you back. :)
Best Vacation Ever!
Circle H Lodge is FABULOUS!! We absolutely loved the swimming hole and all of the various sitting/relaxation decks! We also very much enjoyed having enough bedrooms that permitted people with toddlers and those without to have privacy! The kitchen is surprisingly well-stocked, and the Cantina is so cute with a fun-for-all feel! The owners, John and Jen, are friendly and helpful! Many thanks to them for allowing us to enjoy their property! They're the best! We loved the house and property so much that before the first night was over, we began making plans to return next summer!!
Yay! We're so glad you loved Circle H Lodge!! We look forward to seeing you back next year. Take care!
We will be back next year.
Great pace for the family. Private and relaxing.
Thanks for you feedback, Travis! We look forward to seeing you again next year. :)Jen
