About Natalie Yerkovich

The Rockin’ Y Ranch has been our family ranch since 1990. In 2007 we decided to open up this special property for other families and groups to enjoy. The ranch continues to be family run by Eric (dad) and Natalie (daughter). Eric is from Buffalo, Natalie is an Austin native. We look forward to welcoming you to the ranch and a truly unique Austin experience.

Natalie Yerkovich purchased this house in 1990

Why Natalie Yerkovich chose Austin

Back in 1990 when we bought this unique property, before the boom of Austin growth, the Rockin' Y Ranch felt like it was really in the middle of nowhere! We've retained the peace and quiet, while Austin grew up around us. It's the best of both worlds - wide open spaces combined with easy access to the unique experiences downtown Austin has to offer.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We stayed here for a college reunion and couldn't have asked for a better spot. The house had plenty of room, tons of land outside to set-up some outdoor games or just walk around and explore, and an added bonus of the barn with pool, ping-pong, foosball, etc. We'll definitely be back soon!

Can't imagine a better property for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Everything as described. About a 15 minute ride to downtown. Plenty of space for 17 people. Party Barn is a blast with HD tv, sound system, taxidermy, pool, pong, and more! And they have live cows!

Natalie (manager) and Dave (groundskeeper) were helpful and pleasant to work with. If you're a large group in Austin, book now!

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5

The pictures online are a bit misleading, but it is a nice house with plenty of room. There are a lot of antiques and artifacts that seem a bit weird, but my guests enjoyed the novelty of them. The furniture and fixtures are a bit dated, but still functional. The kitchen has been upgraded and was very nice to cook from. The property is well maintained and the management staff are very nice and helpful. I would recommend this property to my friends and colleagues.

Unforgettable location for a wedding

  • 5 of 5

I will not be able to encompass all the great things about this place in one review. 1) Customer Service - Excellent. Natalie was helpful and organized. She answered most of my crazy questions within hours. If not, she told me it would take a few days to get the answer and she always delivered. Also, there's on site support in case we couldn't figure how stuff works and Dave also, within minutes, was able to get us straight. Super friendly, super fast. What else could you ask for.

2) Cleanliness - Not one complaint. Everything was in perfect order upon arrival.

3) Quality - There's organic coffee provided. That should say enough. The quality of beds, furniture, kitchen appliances, sheets, lighting etc was top notch. There is no skimping. They take pride in this property, as I would. It's perfect and quite the gem.

4) Wedding ready - Super memorable, can't explain this adequately. The barn is perfect. It rained the entire weekend, and I think that was the best move ever. It kept all 90+ people in one place and made for the greatest of intimate settings. The feeling and the sound all around was perfect. The breeze was perfect. The setting was perfect. It was a wedding like I've never experienced before. It was low key, sans drama, just authentic love for each other, our family and friends, and nature. All the affordances are there for a fabulous, unique time. You just need to bring the people.

Just phenomenal.

Great Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our family reunion, which included six little girls, 10 months to 10 years old. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms plentiful, and spaces throughout the house for football on TV, craft projects, toys, games, or quiet time. We cooked huge breakfasts in the kitchen, and we had Thanksgiving dinner in the Party Barn. We loved the cows, the ping pong and pool table, and the space to walk around outside in nature.
