Mineral Wells House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Nestled within the Palo Pinto Hills, above the Brazos River, exists a place like none other... A place for families and friends to experience Texas in its natural beauty. Lucky Cross Ranch was founded by its current owners in 2001. It is a working cattle ranch, with a history steeped in legends and campfire stories. The name “Lucky Cross” comes from an old Indian legend. If they were lucky, the river at either end of the ranch’s property would be low enough for the Comanches to cross. After crossing on horseback they could then double back on anyone following them or presenting a threat.

The Ranch’s beauty has drawn attention from numerous organizations looking for the perfect Texas backdrop. Neiman Marcus recently came out for a photo shoot, Texas Brand Chili shot an advertising campaign, and Texas Tourism took pictures for their 2009 brochure right on our property!

Located 8 and 1/2 miles west of Mineral Wells, TX, our ranch offers the ultimate western adventure getaway- complete with hiking, canoeing, tubing, fishing, and nature activities of all kinds. Guests arrive through our private entrance and can stay in our ranch house, surrounded by the most beautiful hill country in all of Texas.

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lucky Cross, and had a wonderful time. The area is beautiful, and the house is amazing as well. The house has all the amenities you would need, and the owners/ranch manager were both very helpful in answering questions. A group of 8 of us stayed there, and there was more than enough room. We had a surprise birthday party for my girlfriend, so imagine her surprise not only when she first saw the house, but then when her friends started arriving. A place place to spend any occasion, but also a wonderful place to go just to get away. The stars are bright at night thanks to being away from the lights, and the river (although very low on our visit) is beautiful. We definitely hope to return again next year!

Three Years in a Row!

  • 5 of 5

For the third year in a row, my family and I have travelled to the Lucky Cross Ranch for a long weekend in May. The property is clean and very well-maintained. We feel right at home there with everything we need. The owners couldn't be nicer and more helpful. They really want you to love it out there and they want you to be completely comfortable. They are available for questions at all times and have a ranch manager on the property who is on-site and can attend to you right away if necessary. Each year we bring different friends and family members with us so that they can experience this place we love so much. It is peaceful and beautiful with so much to do. We spend our days down at the river fishing and relaxing. At night, we cook out and hang out under the stars. The property is breathtakingly beautiful, and our young children can't get enough of the outdoors. It is safe, comfortable, clean, and just a really good time. I would absolutely recommend Lucky Cross to anyone who is looking to get away from the city, but still would like some of the comforts from home. We love it and will visit again next year!
