Entering the south gate of M&M Creekside is the start of your leaving a crowded world behind. Cedar-lined hillsides descend to open pasture lands sprinkled with mature oaks and several other species of native trees growing along the over 1600 ft. of vibrant, spring-fed Sulfur Creek. This creek is the source of our guests' inspiration and rejuvenation, which is no surprise given the fact that Lampasas was settled in the mid-1800's for the curative power of its springs. Our creek runs year-round and features waterfalls and several deep pools - perfect for swimming, tubing, fishing, skipping rocks, or just sitting under a tree and watching a Fall leaf make its lazy way down river.
A spacious 3500+ square foot home features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on two stories. Four of the five bedrooms offer private french-door access to the rear patio and deck that overlook the private pool and creek below. Elderly guests who have difficulty with stairs need not worry, as the two stories operate as a 1st floor main level with kitchen, family room, and two bedrooms, with a stairway leading downward to a basement level with three additional bedrooms and gameroom.
The open kitchen includes a big breakfast area and beamed ceiling. The main floor living features a fireplace and wraparound deck looking directly onto the creek and across the property's pasture lands. The master bedroom includes an entrance to the deck and its own private full bath. A 2nd bedroom on the main floor also has access to a 2nd full bath. The main level also features a large utility room with washer/dryer and half bath. The basement floor includes a large gameroom with a 2nd fireplace, 3 large bedrooms, a full bath, and a full wet bar and microwave. The gameroom has french doors leading to a stone patio with BBQ area and a beautiful pool overlooking Sulfur Creek. The entire property is gated and fully fenced, lending to the privacy that hill country vacationers prefer.
Located in Lampasas, TX, this Texas Hill Country Vacation Rental is about 45 miles northwest of Austin, 170 miles south of Dallas, and 115 miles north of San Antonio. While secluded on County Road 3010, our creekside ranch is only minutes from Highways 190, 183, and 281 and only 2 miles away from a full service Walmart w/ grocery. The tourist-friendly town square of Lampasas is easily walkable, sprinkled with local shops and the kind of country cookin' restaurants that have faithfully served the town's lifelong residents. Hancock Park Golf Course offers 18 holes of scenic fairways and greens that interplay with the hills and creek on which Lampasas was founded. Lampasas also features two local wineries you may be interested in touring: Pillar Bluff and Texas Legato. Bring a bottle back from one of these local vineyards and enjoy a glass of wine from our balcony as the sun sets on our hill country horizon.
It doesn’t take long to access many of the hill country’s outdoor and entertainment assets from M&M Creekside’s central location. An hour's drive west takes you to Colorado Bend State Park. Lake Buchanan is also a similarly short drive to the southwest, and Inks Lake State Park is only 40 minutes from your front door. More golf options await in nearby Copperas Cove (Copperas Cove Golf Course) and Burnet (Delaware Springs Golf Course). Then there is Austin. Depart M&M Creekside in the late afternoon and you'll arrive in central Austin in just over an hour, ready to savor the dining and music delights of 6th Street, or to join 98,000 of your closest friends at a primetime Texas Longhorns football game.
So if you are looking for a hill country destination to serve your honeymoon, family reunion, pastoral retreat, boy scout troop, romantic getaway, or long-overdue recharging of the soul, M&M Creekside (and a creek full of catfish and bass) awaits your arrival!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family booked a long, early December weekend to M&M Creekside. Most people love the hill country in the summer for obvious reasons. Our family particularly enjoys wintertime in the hill country. We love the quiet and the fireside cups of coffee. M&M did not disappoint. This place was perfect for celebrating the rare occasion of all siblings and our families together in one place. The house easily accommodated the 12 people in our group. The home was very clean. We went for walks and jogs on the acreage and county roads. We had several kids age 7-11. They enjoyed catching bass and catfish in the creek that runs right by the home. My seven year old daughter and I kept daring each other to go completely underwater at one of the creek’s swimming holes. The kitchen was able to support our doing a deferred Thanksgiving dinner. We ventured out to local wineries and small shops, but always enjoyed coming back to M&M. We also appreciated that the owner of the property was reachable if we had a question, like whether campfires are allowed (which we learned they are unless the area is in a drought). This place is truly wonderful and unlike any other we have stayed. We will definitely be back!

Bryan and I had looked for over 2 years for a Hill Country property and then I remembered that a close friend at church had this property in Lampasas. When we entered the property, we both fell in love and knew this one was the one for us. It just so happened that the owners were ready to sell, as their families were in a different place in their lives, with young children needing lots of weekend attention, and they were ready to sell. It all worked out - it was a 'God thing.'
