Fall Creek Ranch
Description: Fall Creek Ranch is a 68 acre paradise which can be best described as a naturalist's dream. The crystal-clear waters of the cypress tree lined Fall Creek run just behind the lodge and the diversity of flora and fauna create an unparalleled ecosystem with all that is treasured about the Hill County.
Improvements: The ranch lodge is a spectacular, rustic, dog-trot log home built in 2004 and modeled after Texas cabins from the 1800's. The storybook 5 bedroom, 6 bath home was designed and hand-built by master craftsmen using a combination of both antique and reclaimed materials resulting in a masterpiece that has been featured in Countrys Best Log Homes magazine (Spring 2010) and Cabin Living magazine (April 2016).
The house was designed as a retreat lodge with bunkhouse. Sleeps up to 15 people (plus cot space on the sleeping porch).
Reclaimed materials, including antique shiplap and beaded board, used throughout (almost no sheetrock on walls or ceilings). Sources for lumber include a cotton oil mill in Seguin built circa 1890, and a church in Taylor built in 1901.

Water Features: Water is abundant on the ranch. Over half a mile of creek runs along or through the property and is graced by massive, towering cypress trees. The strong flowing, crystal clear creek creates picture perfect grottos, swimming holes, fishing holes, and rapids to explore. The relaxing and calming sounds created by the cascading water of the creek can be heard and enjoyed from throughout the home. The creek backs up into the Pedernales River/Lake Travis on this property! Part of the ranch encompasses both sides of Fall Creek, providing a secluded fishing and hunting area hidden in the canyon
Wildlife: Deer, turkey, hogs, quail, doves, and free-range exotics all roam the ranch while the creek and lake offer incredible fishing opportunities!
Vegetation: Large majestic cypress trees, oaks, pecans, persimmon, pecan, walnuts, elms, buckeyes, flame leaf sumacs, and redbuds to name a few all thrive on the ranch.
Marvelous scenic hiking trail.
Potential for spectacular family campgrounds along the creek.
