350 acres at the top of the Riley Mountains in the hill country of Texas just outside the wonderful town of Llano, 35 miles north of Fredericksburg, and 1 hour west of Austin. When you first enter the ranch through the automatic high fence gate, you'll travel through a food plot then over a concrete dam holding back a 1/2 acre pond which you can see the bottom on it's so clear, which will then lead you to the jewel of the property which is a 35 foot deep, 7.5 acre lake with a covered boat dock that automatically adjusts to the water level, a 8X16 bay boat, 3 kayaks, automatic fish feeder, and a lakeside pavilion with firepit - all to enjoy wh...ile catching the lunker bass, and going for swims. There is a 1 acre crystal clear lake above this large lake that the springs all feed into first lake and the ducks really enjoy. These lakes have produced Largemouth Bass over 14 pounds and they have both been on an intense feeding program with bluegill and tilapia. All 3 of the lakes are spring fed and 3 creeks run throughout the ranch. The 3 creeks and 3 lakes make this ranch one of the most unique properties in Llano county and the Texas Hill Country. Sitting in the middle of the ranch is a mountain that comes alive with Axis and Whitetail deer as the sun sets.
Just up from Rocky Lake is a custom-built, 36 foot tall red cedar lodge brought in from Washington state called 'The Barn'. It's the first of it's kind ever built that's custom decorated in an elegant and relaxing rustic hill country style. You enter the Barn from a covered 48X8 front porch with stamped concrete that looks just like wood. Through the two sets of french doors, downstairs is a bathroom, built-in cubbies, and comfortable den with massive stone, wood-burning fireplace which leads to an eat-in kitchen outfitted with stainless appliances. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and 2 full baths with one room including 6 custom-built bunk beds. There is a perfect little nook that overlooks the downstairs area for reading or surfing the internet. Downstairs the 1700 square foot Barn has the perfect layout for 1-2 families to really enjoy. The back lower part of the lodge is a huge garage with air hockey, ping pong, a half bath, and an outdoor shower. The entire exterior Barn area is completely covered in large granite gravel and just beyond that are 2 acres irrigated to keep the wildflowers happy and the dust around the house down.
The 'Barn' is built to best accommodate 2 families, although we've also had parties of six men and 3 couples. It is $50 per adult per night for groups with more than 4 adults. We do not recommend more than 8 adults at most.
This vacation rental is located 8 miles outside of Llano, Texas in the Riley Mountains. There are crystal clear lakes with big largemouth bass and a beautiful lodge called the Barn. All of this is located on 350 acres that you'll have all to yourself for hiking, biking, swimming or just sit on the pavilion or front porch and watch all the Axis and Whitetail run around.
