    About this property

    The Green House at Lighthouse Hill Ranch - 2,001 Acre Ranch

    Vacation home in Johnson City with kitchen and patio
    "The Green House" is located amongst a host of ancient oak trees, some of which are more than 10 feet in circumference. It is within walking distance of our several very nice swimming, tubing and fishing areas with limestone cliffs and crystal clear water (and rock bottoms) on the 6-8 acre Miller Creek lake system. "The Green House" includes 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10 people comfortably and 12 people with the use of the 2 sofas. Just like our other homes, you need only to pack your overnight bag. We have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The kitchen is furnished with coffeemaker (coffee, filters, creamer, sugar, Splenda), pots, pans, stove, refrigerator, microwave, glassware, dishes, silverware, linens, serving bowls, cooking utensils, misc. spices, knife block, toaster, paper towels, napkins, basic condiments in the fridge, and spices in the cabinet for cooking, etc. The living area has a leather furnishings and a loft above it. You can put your feet up and read a good book, watch DirectTV with movie channels, or head into town and rent a DVD to watch on the television. There is no telephone but there is an internet connection in the house if you really must stay in touch with those everyday hassles! The house also has a basement, but we refer to it as 'The Man Cave' complete with leather furnishings a 48' TV and a bar to enjoy. The back porch has a large fire pit with 'rocking' chairs that you can sit in and enjoy a great fire. There's plenty of wood on the ranch - burn all you want! There is also a picnic table that you can use to have a meal outside. In addition, we also have a charcoal grill for outdoor cooking (charcoal provided). If you wish to bring your dog or your horse we have accommodations for them as well. The back deck is fenced and can be used to contain your dog. We ask that you keep them off the furniture and beds and you are required to bring a crate to house them in when you are away from the house ($20 per night per pet stay fee - to be added to your quote after you book). For horses, we have a pipe fenced paddock directly behind the Red House with water & feed troughs as well as a run-in and tack area to keep your tack and feed dry (please note that you will need to rent the Red House as well to bring horses). Lighthouse Hill Ranch is situated in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on 2,001 acres. With this much land it is your own private park to enjoy (see pictures for a map of the property). The ranch consists of rolling hills, incredible 50 mile views, and has one of the highest point in Blanco County. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife on the ranch from cattle, bird watching, deer, turkey, coyotes, armadillos, jackrabbits, doves and variety of other animals. Rental of any of our houses or suites provides you access to the entire ranch (both tracts), which has numerous springs, over 4,000 feet of clear rock-bottom creek to swim and tube in (and including a unique creekside hot tub and waterfall grotto), 8 ponds to fish, a seasonal waterfall and miles of trails for riding your own ATV and bikes, hiking or riding your own horse. In addition, we have five other homes on the ranch available for rental (no two houses are within 1/2 mile of each other) as well as 4 suites at the Arc de Texas. You can find them listed here on Vrbo, simply search Lighthouse Hill Ranch and you can see our 9 other rentals. We look forward to having you at Lighthouse Hill Ranch!

    5/5 Excellent

      Great weekend

      Perfect sized house for a medium group. Nice location on the property with the creek about 300 yards behind the house. Definitely would recommend.

      5/5 Excellent

        We loved this place!

        I have to say that this place exceeded our expectations. Our only issue was that we could not stay longer (work commitments). We stayed with our nearly adult kids and had a blast. The house is huge and gave everyone space. The dogs enjoyed the openness and it has all the amenities of home. I think the one thing that was mediocre was the internet, but after the initial frustration we were actually okay with it because it gave us a chance to unplug a bit. Overall this Ranch was amazing the pool area at the Arc was really nice and relaxing and the solitude allowed us to decompress. We are already planning our next visit here and will be telling others about this place (if we want to share our new little gem).

        5/5 Excellent

          The property was amazing with so much to do! I will definitely bring my family back!

          We could not have picked a more perfect place for our getaway before my brother’s wedding! The house was well adorned and the property was amazing. Bring your swimsuits, fishing poles, and atv’s, and plan on spending your time outside on your stay here! The Green House is a little close to the highway, but with so much property to explore you’ll never notice.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great location and beautiful home

            We visit this part of the Texas Hill Country very often and find the Green House and other properties owned and managed by the Meyerton's with Lighthouse Ranch to be ideal in several ways. Due to the popularity of this part of Texas and rather limited hotel accommodations, they offer a luxurious and affordable option. Also, when you have a group of family or friends, everyone can stay together which is nice and avoids the expense of multiple hotel rooms. Combined with the large ranch to explore and especially for the Green House, close proximity to a cool place to swim. The tasting room at the Arc de Texas is a fun place where Adam and Stephanie can share their knowledge of local wineries and for local's 'in the know' it's open for an extra hour of socializing until 7pm. Come stay here and you will not be disappointed!

            4/5 Good

              A true hill country ranch experience

              We enjoyed our stay at the Greenhouse. The home was spacious and good size for our family and we appreciated being able to bring our small dog. We loved the landscape, the cows grazing, the fishing ponds, making s'mores at night and the proximity to Austin and San Antonio when we ventured out. It was a fun time!
