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