Rent the main house with 4 bedrooms with or without the garage apartment.
** Please read carefully the paragraph below on booking the 5th bedroom.
Stone Home Ranch is your exceptional country getaway, sitting high on the craggy cliffs of the Pedernales River, with stunning views of the Texas Hill Country.
** The main house has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths that can be booked alone when your group needs beds for 10 or less. The garage apartment with 2 queen beds, 1 full bed and a full bath that can be booked when you need the extra room or it is paid for when you book 14 guest. So 10 guest or less is the base price, additional price for extra guest, when 4 extra guest are paid, then the apartment is paid for. ( ie: if you have 12 guest you have the option of them staying in the house or for additional fee you can request the apartment . I do this to allow for the smaller groups at a lower price in the main house.

Wendy Rivers purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Wendy Rivers chose Spicewood
Stone Home Ranch was our primary home for over 5 , years then again 2012/13. After my youngest son was accepted in a local boarding school leaving me an empty nest, I have decided to share our home once again with guest and move into downtown Austin to experience the city life.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
I enjoy the tranquility, the wildlife, the views are breathtaking, home is very comfortable, hiking or taking walks, kayaking at the river, and the local food and music. Stone Home Ranch is what I call 'My Slice of Heaven', it is truly magical.

Top quality river home and property in Texas hill country
Home is well appointed and well cared for. Outdoor spaces are inviting and where we spent most of our time. Views across the Pedernales river are excellent. House is several flights of stairs above the river. Riverside area has table, chairs, hammock, etc.
Everyone in our family group thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Always Heartwarming to know our guest love time at Stone Home Ranch.
Nothing to do but relax!
We spent a long weekend in this beautiful location with family and friends. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out to have their own space but yet large enough for time spent together over meals or just relaxing. The fully equipped kitchen has serving trays and dishes for creating a beautiful buffet with a upscale ranch décor. The property allows you room to roam, take a walk, hike down by the river or just sit and soak up God's artwork. You will not regret your time spent at the Stone Home Ranch.
Beautiful home in a private natural setting
We had a wonderful stay at Stone Home Ranch! The house was perfect for our group of 9 adults and 3 babies. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped and dining out on the porch. The house has great views of the river and is very peaceful. We also enjoyed being able to hang out down by the river and play in the water. Wendy was a friendly, welcoming host and made sure we had everything we needed. In particular, she helped accommodate our little ones by loaning us a pack and play and letting us stay late on our last day for nap time. It’s a great spot!
Beautiful house & so relaxing!
Great place to relax but adventure on hikes & on the river. Wendy is so attentive to anything u need. We had adults & kids in our party, we cooked, grilled and had an amazing time!
