Beautiful, detached 2-room casita adjoining a ranch house
Enjoy the ultimate privacy and seclusion on this beautiful, exotic deer ranch in one or both of our flexible, en-suite bedroom suites - less than $100 per person, per night.
The casita is semi-attached, connected by a breezeway/covered porch to the main house. There are substantial covered porches and another 2000+ square feet flagstone deck surrounding the pool. The setting is the center of an 80 acre ranch, on a ridge with 20-30 mile views north, east, south and west. You simply won't believe the views until you see them.
The casita bedroom and kitchen/living space opens toward the enormous 60,000 gallon pool with double screened doors throughout. It also has a private entrance opening away from the courtyard.
Relax in the huge courtyard pool area and massive outdoor stone fireplace. You will be in awe of the spectacular 360° views of the Texas Hill Country - so much so that day excursions away from this beautiful place will interfere!
Enjoy watching sunrises over the pool and beautiful, panoramic vistas.
Alexandra Ranch is surrounded by Texas Hill Country's renowned wineries and antique shops. However, we strongly recommend that for short (e.g., 2 day visits) you make Alexandra Ranch your destination. Once you arrive, you'll understand.
The pool deck and casitas are on one level with no steps.

Beatiful and peaceful
My leadership team and I came to this property to spend some time away from the hustle of the office space. It was the perfect spot for us to sit and look out over the wide Vista and get our heads around the coming year. Highly recommend staying here for a quiet, peaceful time.
Beautiful, relaxing home away from it all!
We were blown away with the property and home upon arrival! It is a gorgeous place with a true "Hill Country" feel. The location is actually not as far from Fredericksburg as we thought. Mark did everything possible to help us enjoy our stay, including making a fire for us every night on the patio. Breakfast was wonderful! It really was a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
Pictures do not do just on this place, it is amazing!
Had a great expereince staying at Alexandra Ranch with my wife celebrating our wedding anniversary, the pictures online dont do just to how really beautiful the place is. It has shared common areas by the pool with have plenty of seating areas to eat dinner or relax and just enjoy the sprawling 82 acre ranch with some of the best views of the Texas Hill Country. The rooms are just cozy but small and have a nice and clean well kept bathrooms and your own washer and dryer, which is convenient to have. My only comments that would be constructive is it would be nice to have a small fridge in the room considering how far from town the place is from town and it has a grilling area but if you don't have a small fridge to keep any sides or steaks cold its hard to actually use the grilling and outdoor areas for cooking.
Other than that we rated the place a 10 out of 10, we would love to come back with our family and friends.
Great spot to disconnect from city life!
We loved our stay at the ranch. We were a little disappointed that the casita was only one bedroom (the site led us to believe it was larger), but it worked out just fine. The scenery was beautiful and the hosts were incredibly hospitable. Great spot for anyone looking to get away from it all! We hope to return soon.
Thanks for the 5 star review and for staying with us. When you come back, feel free to ask for the second bedroom for your child. As you know, we didn't charge extra for him anyway!
Beautiful and peaceful
Beautiful and peaceful ranch. The owners are friendly, warm and welcoming, the room is clean and comfy---we had a much needed respite from city life!! Would love to return soon for another visit!!
The ultimate destination and retreat. Experience the seclusion and views - your first and lasting impression.
The casitas are separate buildings connected to the main home which sits on 80 acres (high-fenced and gated) atop a ridge between Boerne and Fredericksburg (an hour from San Antonio). Leave the interstate and meander through Sisterdale and old German ranches to this hilltop compound. Enter through 200 year old Spanish Colonial doors to a veritable private resort.
We do not rent the "main house" but only the casitas. No access to the main house is offered.
Other Activities: walking/hiking without leaving the property, pool.
Golf: Comfort public course - 9 miles
Wine country: Alexandra Ranch is well located just a hop, skip and a jump from the Highway 290 Wine Trail. Dozens of the Hill Country's most visited wineries are within a 20 mile radius of the ranch. Private wine tour transportation services are available from third-party service providers (not connected with Alexandra Ranch LLC).
