About Jill Cunningham-Baker

Originally from Houston, my family and I moved to Austin in 1980. After our children graduated from Lake Travis High School, I decided that a move to the country was in order. So in 2000, I built my home on Canyon Lake and by 2001, I was full time resident. Once settled in, I began to adopt farm animals and from there it has grown by leaps and bounds. Who would think that a city girl would become a farm girl?

Jill Cunningham-Baker purchased this house in 2014

Why Jill Cunningham-Baker chose Texas Hill Country

"El Rancho Regenia" was built as my parents retirement home in the mid-80's. After my parents were gone, I was fortunate enough to purchase this beautiful property, that meant so much to them, and expand the farm. From the time it was constructed, our family has enjoyed this very special place on the lake. Not only does it hold precious memories of when our children were little, but we are now able to share those memories and while making new ones with our own grandchildren.

One of my greatest joys is the ability to share "El Rancho Regenia" with wonderful families who want to experience a little bit of the country life while enjoying the company of family and friends. My hope is that this will continue for many years to come...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a great time and could have not ask for anything more. We found the utensil drawer under the countertop and everything was there just like you said. Hopefully we will be back for a long weekend this year, but if not, we will be definately see you next "spring break". Everything was wonderful!

I'm not easily impressed, but El Rancho Regenia impressed even me!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in numerous vacation rentals. Some very nice, some not so much. El Rancho Regenia ranks at the top of our list. The overall atmosphere is very serene and I really appreciated all the small details ... fully stocked kitchen, bottle of wine and sweet card to welcome us, hair dryers, each bedroom has it's own bath, the separate downstairs hang-out for the kids, qtips!, linens, full cable service, full service outdoor kitchen. The place feels like a home and not a house. Also, Jill is very responsive and just a sweetheart. We will be back!

What a wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home with spectacular views and outdoor living space. We needed a space to accommodate our large family for a wedding down the road. It was the perfect place to rest and relax while awaiting all of the weekend festivities. The views were truly breathtaking and the porch overlooking the lake was large enough so that we could all sit comfortably and eat breakfast. Jill was incredibly accommodating and wonderful to work with. We will definitely keep El Rancho Regenia in mind when we are in the area again!!

Best relaxing week ever

  • 5 of 5

Rancho Regenia was beautiful!! So relaxiing. Every year we take our grandkids for spring break vacation. We do it as a family trip. This year we wanted them to enjoy the outdoors. Well this place delivered!!$ we enjoyed fishing, feeding the animals riding bikes , roasting marshmallows on the fire pit. My son really enjoyed the outside kitchen. Jill has this home equipped with everything you can think of!! She had so many games for our kids to enjoy when it was time for them to come in after a whole day outside. They didn't even play with their electronics!!!! We left the place once!! Took a vote at the end of the week and we all want to come back!! DEFINITELY

Owner's Response: Joe, Your family was awesome... I am so happy that everyone had a GREAT time and the fact that the children put their electronics down and played outside speaks volumes of what there is to do at the ranch. Thank you again, for the care that everyone took in our home and property. I hope you and your family are able to visit again. Kindest regards, Jill
