Owned by two sisters who have poured their life and soul into creating an amazing retreat for their families, now open to you. A lot of people say they have never seen a more beautiful or peaceful place.

The Owner purchased this estate in 1996

The Texas HIll Country has special memories for many because of the summer camps in the area. The scents, breezes, water and feel of the Hill Country are like no other.

The main attraction at Chinquapin is the natural beauty of the propery itself. Also, each cottage has it's own personality and privacy. Your own screened porch and kitchen. Each bedroom has a private bath. The lodge is large and welcoming, perfect for all of your family to gather. The swimming hole is indescribable...the water is pristine and gigantic! There is great fishing and hiking. Large patios for entertaining and stereo system to listen to your tunes outdoors. A fully equiped grill area, playground and rec room (ping pong, pool, foosball). Family of all ages will be thrilled with Chinquapin.

FAMILY REUNION 2013

  • 5 of 5
Chinquapin was the perfect spot for our large family reunion. Without exception, everyone was pleased. The main lodge with its soaring ceilings was comfortable and spacious for eating meals, visiting, hanging out or just napping. We had three toddlers and the television room worked great for quiet naps but was still close enough for monitoring. The huge kitchen allowed everyone to be involved in meal preparation. All the kitchenware you could possibly need was available for preparation and serving.

The houses were so pretty and thoughtfully planned - everyone felt pampered. The swimming was awesome and the grounds were beautiful with many spots to rest, visit and take in the scenery. The recreation house was great for competative games of ping pong, pool, darts or basketball. The playground was complete with a treehouse, swings and an in-ground trampoline. There was something for all ages. I preferred the hammocks by the water. The evening trips to sunset lookout was a whole family favorite - we even learned of an impending marriage proposal there. We were wowed when we arrived at Chinquapin and when we left - definitely an annual event now for our family. Thank you to Vaughn and Cecilia for making us feel so welcome.

EVERYTHING IS PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Words can't even begin to describe the beauty that is Chinquapin. I brought my friends and family together for my 40th Birthday at Chinquapin, and not only are we all planning on coming back for 50, but maybe also 43 and 46! As other reviews have said, almost every member of our party is trying to plan to come back to the ranch someday.

The entire ranch is perfectly stocked, supplied and decorated. Anything you could possibly want, just look where you think it should be and it will be there! All the bedrooms have their own stye, complete with comfortable linens, comfy beds, beautiful well loved furniture, claw footed bath tubs AND outdoor showers! The Lodge is the perfect place for all the gatherings, with plenty of room inside and out for all kinds of sitting and enjoying each others' company or just quietly reading, listening to the birds!

The water was glorious. I expected to just watch the kids play all day... but half an hour later and all the adults were in and couldn't be coaxed out until the dinner bell rang!

We had all ages from toddlers, teenagers, young adults and seniors, and I can truly say that everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time. The photos, however beautiful, don't even begin to do justice. And Vance, the ranch foreman was so nice and helpful, just a phone call away, for answers to questions, more supplies, and to help jumpstart a dead battery!

Like I said, words are inadequate... just go there!

PERFECT WEDDING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We chose Chinquapin for our 30 person weeding over Labor Day weekend. The number one topic of conversation during this trip? Not the bride or the wedding. It was getting back out to Chinquapin soon. Every one of the guests, the bride, and groom had an awesome time.

The central lodge, playground, rec room, and spring fed pool mean the younger folk can stay up late while the more experienced get to retire early without any noise. Great idea!

The quality of the place was amazing. Beautiful rooms decorated wonderfully with the finest materials. Furnishings and linens were outstanding. Outdoor showers were a nice treat (not required - they do have nice indoor showers too!).

Every detail was taken care of throughout the property. Who has a commercial ice machine? Chinquapin does. It's a testament to the thoughtfulness of the owners. They have done this before. You do not have to sweat the details.

Oh, the water. The website claims you won't get out. They mean it. The only time the spring fed pool (about 75 degrees) wasn't used was during the actual ceremony. Young and old alike were in the water constantly. Most of us are from Austin. The closest comparison is if you had a private Barton Springs in your backyard. It's that good.

It was about a 2.5 hour trip from Austin but surprisingly easy to find.

Cell phone service was pefect. It didn't work at all but in a few places throughout the ranch. You could get and make calls when you wanted to, but had a great excuse if you didn't. AT&T seemed the best. Wireless internet worked well in several of the properties for those who can't put their smartphones down.

Cecilia recommended a wonderful woman, Nati, for breakfast and cleanup. She came in two mornings. Her homemade tortillas, chorizo, etc was awesome. She was charming and sweet too. What a way to start the day!

Finally we loaded up the trucks and went to Sunset Hill on our last evening. Despite 100 degree temperatures it was cool and breezy on the hill. The view was breath taking. It was one of the highlights of the trip (and I was the groom!).

DREAM DREAM DREAM

  • 5 of 5
This ranch is a dream.
The houses, the location, the decor, the water, the land, the DECOR.
Really magical place for everyone.
I love the main house being a meeting place for dinners, swimming and roasting marsh mellows and then everyone has a home they can spread out to at bedtime.
It is where I would like to live out my life.
It is perfect.

HILL COUNTRY MAGIC

  • 5 of 5
Chinquapin Ranch is sheer perfection. We felt unbelievably lucky to be staying at their beautiful place. Not only is it stunningly gorgeous, but it radiates fun and love from every corner. Each detail has been considered, and you get a real sense of the love that went into creating the ranch. Everyone who works at the ranch is delightful, from the ranch owner to the foreman to the lovely Nati (who makes the best homemade tortillas and huevos rancheros that you could ever imagine). The decor is the perfect blend of modern meets country hip. Each house has it's own personality, and all the furniture is cozy, beautiful and well-loved. Just when you think things can't get any better, you'll come upon yet another screened porch, hammock, or reading nook. And then there is the enormous creek...the water is the ideal temperature and depth, framed by limestone banks. There is endless space for the kids to run outdoors and a million activities for them.

I could go on and on, but couldn't even begin to do it justice. Just know that if you are fortunate enough to spend some time at Chinquapin, you will immediately begin planning your next trip there.

It is pretty special and you're right...once you get there you will already be planning your next trip back...it's hard to leave. The water, breezes, cottages and Hill Country atmosphere all combine in the most perfect way. Hope to see you next year!!
