CONTENT RANCH - UNPLUG AND RELAX

Abilene Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

$500 Max per night - 4 Bedroom 3 Bath New Home on 330 acres

Big West Texas Sky – Sit on the porch on one of the highest peaks in Runnels County and watch the sky light up from horizon to horizon as the sun sets over Ranger Peak. Stay in a new ranch house with big porches, long views and over 300 acres to roam and view native wildlife. Spend your evenings under the stars by the fire and count satellites instead of sheep.

The house has two master bedrooms with private baths and two guest rooms with full/twin bunk beds. Full kitchen with new stainless appliances and windows, lots of windows. Take some time to unplug, slow down, and breath. No TV, No Internet, and good cell service will keep your mind centered on stress free relaxation.

Located 35 miles South of Abilene, 2.5 hours from Ft. Worth, 3 hours from Austin, Midland and Lubbock. Just 25 minutes from the famed Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap but the steaks are pretty darn good cooked over mesquite coals on the grill just off the porch.

No hunting, shooting, or motorcycles are allowed but shoot all the pictures you want. Sit in the deer blinds (or sometimes on the porch) to watch and photograph, deer, turkeys, and wild quail. Hike or mountain bike the hills and many trails to see long views in all directions. Some groups use this as a lodge when hunting in the area.

$500 Max per night - $300 for the first couple and $50 per person up to $500 max.

**We also accommodate larger groups by combining other rental properties in the area.

About Ben Frishman

We live in Austin, Texas and own this property as a recreational and ranch property. We can't spend as much time there as we would like and want to share the beauty of this great property with others.

Ben Frishman purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

Why Ben Frishman chose Abilene

This property has the highest elevations in Runnels Co. at 2300 ft and our new house with central air and heat sits near the top. Wrap around views from the porch stretch for miles. A huge variety of large oaks and other trees cover the property. After dark the stars are amazing. A huge fire pit provides warm comfortable evenings under the stars. There is an abundance of wildlife and many roads, trails and ponds to explore.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Relaxation is the primary strength of this property. We don't have TV or the Internet. Good music adds to the atmosphere. Evenings around the fire under stars are the icing on the cake.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
The Content Ranch was fabulous. The pictures just do not do this place justice. The views are out of this world. the porch was so peaceful... We just kicked back and relaxed. I would recommend this place to anyone. In fact I already have told everyone I know that the Content Ranch is an ideal place for a "get away".

Incredible Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Spent 4 days and 3 nights at Content Ranch with a group of 8 men (ages 25 - 30). Couldn't have had a better stay! Danielle got us all set up right when we arrived and didn't need a thing the whole time we were there. Cooked all of our meals, made one grocery run (store is only about 20min away).

It's the perfect remote getaway. The view is incredible and the pictures on the VRBO profile do not do this place justice. We had coffee on the front porch each morning as the sun came up and started a fire in the huge fire pit as the sun went down each night. In between we tossed washers, horseshoes, rode bikes and just enjoyed the great outdoors.

I would recommend Content Ranch to anyone who is interested. Would be a great Family spot or would be perfect for a group of hunters looking for a place to stay.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the ranch. My family enjoyed hiking, exploring, wildlife viewing, and looking for arrowheads. We had everything we needed in the house and all was very well maintained. The house is new and very confortable. The views and sunsets were spectacular. The highlight of the trip was sitting on the porch in the evening and watching an afternoon storm roll through to the north of us with a stunning lightning show.

We are looking forward to our next stay at Content Ranch.

A real getaway with awesome natural beauty and personal comfort

  • 5 of 5
I was a little wary when my family decided to meet at a ranch so remote that I could barely find it on my phone map. But when we got there (and it wasn't difficult after all) I fell in love with the place right away. Sitting in the shade on the deck with a tall cool drink, looking out over the countryside, I felt like I was on top of the world. I finally got to dive fully into a good book without the city noises and TV competing for my attention. I rambled about on the property, breathing deep the fresh country air, hunting for arrowheads and fossils, checking out wildflowers and enjoying a peaceful quiet broken only by birdsong and the breeze in the trees.
In the evening after one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever seen, and steaks and veggies on the grill, I joined my family around the fire pit. We told jokes and caught up with each other’s lives and remembered other great times in our shared history. Another night we played cards and sang along to favorite CDs. I slept great at the ranch and was grateful for a place where I could be so close to nature and still have all the comforts of home. I ended up not even missing TV and internet. In fact, I came home with a promise to myself to unplug more often. Hopefully, some of those times will be back at Content with friends and family.
