The lodge is located in a lovely, secluded valley on Circle H Ranch. This is a working ranch devoted to the preservation of wildlife and is home to many species of both native and non-native animals. The lodge is decorated in Cowboy High Style with antiques and Cowboy -Indian memorabilia. There is a natural rock swimming pool in front of the lodge.

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.

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.

AUTHENTIC TEXAS EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Sight unseen, we rented this property for our annual family pilgrimage to the Hill Country, this year with our sons' college roommates from Seattle and Montreal. We were captivated by the beautiful landscape, the large and comfortable lodge, and most of all, the virtual Noah's Ark of free-range hoofstock (with hundreds of photos to prove it). Rugged hiking in the hills, swimming in the picturesque natural pool, and star-gazing around the bonfire pit, all were among the best experiences we've had in 30 years of visiting the Frio Canyon area. Our guests were thrilled with their first experience of Texas - and intend to return for more R&R at Circle H Lodge.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Keisha! I so wish you would have not felt bad and could have joined your family for more "Circle H" time. You'll have to do a mulligan. :) We do value your business and look forward to seeing you again next year or sooner. :)Jen & John

A RELAXING HILL COUNTRY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay for families with school-aged children. We were truly impressed by the beauty and seclusion of the property as well as the warmth and friendliness of the ranch staff and their family. Our children played for hours in the beautiful spring-fed pool and enjoyed feeding the exotic animals. We told stories around the bonfire pit and generally enjoyed the warmth and comfort of the magnificent home. We can't stop telling our friends about the highlight of our Spring break Trip to Texas (better than SeaWorld or the Riverwalk). We look forward to finding another opportunity to return.

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the ranch! The house was beautiful. We were welcomed by the friendly "ranch hands" and a visit from the owner. The property is perfect for quiet time, long walks, and cooling off at the spring fed (a little chilly) pool. The animals are an extra treat! Many thanks for the hospitality and company.
