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!

Beautiful

This place was everything we wanted and MORE! Jill and Lola are wonderful. The house was clean and stocked well. We walked in to fresh flowers, freshly baked cookies, a bottle of wine and customized M&Ms to greet us. The property is absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely return.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful house on expansive lake-front property

  • 5 of 5

My group and I had a wonderful stay at El Rancho Regenia. The home is spacious yet cozy and was well equipped with everything we needed. We made great use of all the amenities available - we grilled on the deck, sat around the fire-pit, went fishing in the stocked pond, took a stroll down to the lake, and even fed the goats! Jill was so gracious to host us and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I would love to stay at ERR again!

A beautiful place perfect for relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the house and there were fresh flowers and cookies with a welcome letter waiting for us. Jill was a very accommodating and gracious host. We enjoyed roaming the property, feeding the animals and fish, and relaxing on the balcony overlooking the lake. Everything we needed was there!

Great Lake Property for any Occasion

  • 5 of 5

The house comfortably slept 10 and has ample entertainment areas. The back deck is great for evening entertainment and the wildlife in the area is everywhere. The property is right across the cove from the marina and made a boat day very convenient. I would recommend the property for any group looking at Canyon Lake.

Perfect place to make lifelong memories with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay! The hospitality was so welcoming. We needed a vacation away from our busy, over-scheduled, digital life. And we got just what we needed! We had two families (parents and 6teen boys and girls) staying together with family members visiting at various time for meals/fun. Everyone had fun and could not stop remarking on how nice this place was. Plenty of room for all to be comfortable including bathrooms.

The kitchen was stocked so well with plenty of good utensils and pans. We cooked nice big meals almost every meal. Our favorite part was the patio! We spent much time relaxing/eating outside because the breeze off of the lake was so good that we never felt hot.

The access to the house was perfect on both levels with car access. My parents (senior age) visited one day and my father uses a walker. He had no problem at all getting around. They loved the patio with a beautiful view! They look forward to future stays.

All of the furnishings and appliances were up-to-date if not new-like. This was such an improvement from most other rental properties on the lake.

The extras on the property like the outdoor cooking area and fire pit were awesome and we enjoyed s'mores, outdoor time, and good conversation! The animals were so fun to watch during the stay too! We liked that the kids had the freedom to enjoy walking around exploring the good views, each night the kids went down for a perfect sunset viewing!

The water access/entry was great and we enjoyed floating and kayaking. We were able to swim out to our boat to switch skiers. The walk to the water was not bad, a pleasant flat walk...far better than a cliffy drop off to climb like on most CL properties.

Overall, we all agreed this was the best rental property by far! We can't say enough. The adults had relaxing fun time and the teens did too! We look forward to staying here again for another multi-family vacation or even a family renunion! Thank you!
