Set on a private, gated 74 acre ranch with 900 feet of Lake Travis shoreline surrounded by The Texas Hill Country, ACME Ranch is the PERFECT getaway. While it provides luxurious accommodations, it also has all the amenities you can imagine. Once you arrive, you will not need to leave since there are numerous activities available. Amenities include a swimming pool, spa, chipping/putting greens, horseshoe pit, washers' pit, outdoor chess game, basketball hoop, foosball and a pool table. If you love exploring, bring your mountain bike or 4 wheeler since there are 74 acres for you to enjoy! You can even bring your horses!

Acme Ranch is designed to give guests privacy and solitude while offering many gathering opportunities, from intimate weddings, family reunions or business retreats. It has a main residence, cabin and a bunkhouse and offers flexibility for sleeping arrangements up to 30 people. 30 people includes ALL day and night guests; please DO NOT ask for more. We do not allow weddings, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners or other celebrations for more than 30 people.

The pristine surrounding area of limestone formations, rolling hills and many trees provides a very unique environment. There is also a 6 acre fenced pasture so you can bring your horses as well!

Special amenities include pool/spa, chipping/putting greens, horsehoe pit, washer's pit, spacious outdoor living, boat dock, crow's nest, outdoor chess board, covered lanai, basketball hoop, free WiFi, satellite television, pool table and foosball.

I AM SORRY BUT WE DO NOT ALLOW WEDDINGS OR ANY EVENTS THAT HAS MORE THAN 30 PEOPLE. THAT INCLUDES ALL DAY AND NIGHT GUESTS!!

Main Residence:

Inside the main residence, there's the essence of sophisticated design: clean, simple lines and first-class materials. It blends space, light, and art beautifully with its high ceilings, open, airy rooms and stained concrete floors. It offers a sense of grandeur, all encompassing quality from its meticulous details to its broad architectural designs, and a designer's touch with striking uses of natural stone, metal, wood, and artistic glass accents. This is completed with comfortable fine furnishings throughout.

The spacious open floor plan of the kitchen, dining and living spaces is ideal for entertaining friends, family and coworkers. To satisfy your culinary needs, the kitchen has been stocked with all the amenities needed to prepare for a quick meal or for a formal dinner. It has gorgeous limestone counters, wood cabinets, double oven, two refrigerators, large pantry and Dacor appliances. The open floor plan allows interaction of the guests whether they are cooking, sitting at the breakfast bar, playing a game of pool, watching television, or simply relaxing and enjoying the view.

With each of the beautifully decorated bedrooms, it's easy to see that ACME Ranch is a vacation home of substance and style. The Master Suite has a king size bed, office, dressing room and a luxurious bathroom with great views of Lake Travis from the jetted tub. There is also an outdoor shower adjacent to the bathroom. Each of the two guest rooms has a queen bed, three twin beds and a private bath. The main residence sleeps 12 comfortably.

Transition seamlessly from indoors to outdoors by opening the expansive sliding glass doors. The living space extends to a large covered lanai with an outdoor kitchen and additional seating. It offers alfresco dining and relaxing possibilities with panoramic views of Lake Travis that will delight you. Stay a while and enjoy an amber sunset over the lake and hillside.

Cabin: The original homestead has been updated and is a perfect companion for the main home. With beautiful glass mosaic accents, full kitchen and an inviting interior, it offers a quiet getaway from the main home. The covered front porch encourages you to linger. It has 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, futon, full bathroom and sleeps 4-6.

Bunkhouse: The bunkhouse is on the second floor of 'The Barn.' It is a spacious, open room with bunk beds (6 twin beds, 2 full beds), a futon, foosball table, a kitchenette with microwave and small refrigerator and sleeps 10-12.

The outdoor setting with all of the available activities gives this home a very unique advantage over most vacation homes. The combination of Lake Travis, The Texas Hill Country, and a private ranch will completely remove you from any stress and worries you might have had, leaving you revived and renewed. Acme Ranch is the essence of a luxury vacation home—and a little bit extra.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Epilepsy Foundation Texas held our annual staff retreat at ACME Ranch. What a beautiful house, cabin and bunkhouse. Our staff enjoyed all the amenities and the gorgeous area. We visited the local winery (only a couple minutes away) one afternoon as well. The house was perfect for our large group as we planned for the year ahead. Thank you for a fantastic retreat facility.

So much fun!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a beautiful and perfect place! We came for a wedding in Copperas Cove from San Antonio, Tyler, IKC, Boulder and Louisville. One family, five kids & their families. The young adult guys enjoyed the bunk house and all of us enjoyed ping pong, foosball, BBQ, horseshoes, golf, chess--all of it! I think we did it all! The table is the perfect size for lovely family meals. We enjoyed the pool! WOW! Just beautiful! Lots of laughter! So much fun!

Thanks for sharing your home!

Three families gathered here with their grown children for an awesome weekend. The views were fabulous. Enjoyed it all--the pool, horseshoes, chess! We went to Flat Creek Winery, which is only a couple of minutes away. We also enjoyed great meals by Chef Eric, who was recommended by the management company. We had an absolutely awesome time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
ACME Ranch is the best vacation rental ever! We always have our family reunion at a different location every year. This year we chose Lake Travis since our son would be going to the university. It was the perfect home for us. There were more than enough beds, which is very difficult to find. There was something to do for everyone! The beautiful pool & spa for my wife (the kids liked the pool, too, but they liked everything), the pool table for the older teenagers, the chess set for the intellectual kids and the grill for me! This home is so much better than the photos. It is really large and open so we could all gather together. Although we normally like a new home each year, we all agreed we want to come back next year. It is hard to improve on perfection.

Had a Wonderful Stay at the Ranch!

  • 5 of 5
We rented ACME ranch for a week in January 2013 for a corporate retreat, but I can see it being equally perfect for a small wedding or family event. We had a total of 26 guests, and even with that amount of people we hardly felt crammed. The home is absolutely beautiful and surpasses the photos you'll see online. The home is very well designed and very conducive to entertaining and accommodating large numbers of people - the kitchen, main living room, outdoor living room and pool/spa are all within easy reach of one another and have multiple access points. We did a fair amount of cooking while at the ranch, and found the gourmet kitchen (TWO large refrigerators, double ovens and quality appliances) and outdoor grill station a delight to use. There is no finer place to watch a sunset than at the crows nest at the ranch. Overall, a wonderful experience.

While there, we walked down to the lovely Flat Creek Winery (30 minute walk) where they were extremely accommodating to multiple dietary requests and organized a flat-fee delicious lunch for us all - a beautiful place, wish we had more time for a vineyard tour! Also, Maria's in Lago Vista (20 min drive) hosted us for a lovely dinner one night as well. We drove into downtown Austin one night for a night on the town on 6th street, took us about 1.5 hour with rush hour traffic - a great outing during the week, but not ideal if you're intending to be in Austin every night.

Would definitely rent the ranch again!

Owner's Response: We are VERY happy that you had a wonderful experience at ACME Ranch. We love to spend time out there as well and want others to enjoy it as much as we do. It was designed and furnished so people would feel at home, have a great time and want to come back! Since everyone’s idea of a vacation can be different, we try to provide as many amenities as we can. We are also happy that you enjoyed Flat Creek Winery; it is a super place. Many people do not realize that they have a Bistro.

We hope you come back. It was great having you and your company there.

Unbeatable Lake Travis Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We worked with Kathi to book Acme Ranch for a weekend trip to Lake Travis for a group of 19 young adults. Kathi went above and beyond the call of duty in many ways, and we really appreciated her dedication to ensuring that we had a great experience with her realty group and the rental property. We were incredibly happy with the property, and everyone had a wonderful time on the trip. Everything was just as described and shown in the photos on the website (no shortage of photos/information there)! The house and cabins provided plenty of space for everyone, and the accommodations (bedding, linens, tableware, etc.) were comfortable and in plentiful supply! Despite the low water level, we were able to bring our boat into the cove just far enough to get things loaded without a problem. The conditions on that part of the lake were absolutely perfect for the wakeboarding since there were few boats around and lots of cliffs to shelter from the wind, which made the extra driving distance from Houston totally worth it. The views from the house were spectacular, especially from the crow's nest, and we had a great time with the enormous outdoor chess set - it definitely made chess a more exciting and intense game! I have received so many compliments from my friends about the trip and the property, and I most certainly need to extend those compliments to you and the owner of the property since it really set the stage for an unbeatable Lake Travis vacation!
