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

Family-friendly vacation home in Johnson City with water park
‘The Lighthouse' is a magnificent 4 bedroom, 4 bath 4 story 86 feet tall house with a balcony observatory with wet bar, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, central air/heat and great fire pit to sit and enjoy the nighttime sky in the Hill Country. You only need to pack your overnight bag, we have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The house sleeps 9-15 people. The two bedrooms on the first floor contain king beds, the second floor bedroom has two twin beds, the third floor bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed, and the secret room has bean bag chairs that turn into full size beds that can be laid out on the floor (linens provided). All of the furnishings in the Lighthouse are uniquely selected to match the 5 star accommodations provided by this unique structure.

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 leather furnishings and a 55' TV on the wall where you can put your feet up and read a good book, watch DirectTV with all the 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 back deck has it's own private pool and hot tub with a negative edge and a gas fire pit with chairs that you can sit in and enjoy a great fire. If you really want to burn wood there is also a large fire pit down below the house. There's plenty of wood on the ranch - burn all you want! There is also a table and chairs that you can use to have a meal outside. In addition, we also have a propane gas grill for outdoor cooking (connected to the 1,000 gallon propane tank on the property).

There is also a sports court set up for tennis, full court basketball, and volleyball. It's BYOB (bring your own balls).

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 ($25 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 wat 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!

Superb view!
We celebrated an early Christmas with family and the house was perfect for our gathering. Not too far from wineries, shopping in Fredericksburg and hiking. Really a great location. The observatory on the top of the lighthouse had wonderful views. We saw a magnificent sunset from the observatory as well! Lovely place and the communication from the owners was excellent and quick! Will have to return!
