About the property

5 bedroom luxury ranch house including semi-detached casitas

Enjoy the ultimate privacy and seclusion on this beautiful, exotic deer ranch in en-suite bedrooms (note: no weddings or other events are permitted). Dogs/cats are never permitted, so you needn't worry about pet allergies. We respectfully ask that you strictly observe our no-pet policy for the benefit of our non-pet-owning guests.

The casitas are 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 house and casita bedrooms open toward the enormous 60,000 gallon pool with double screened doors throughout.

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 only destination. Once you arrive, you'll understand.

The pool deck and casitas are on one level with no steps.

What makes this house unique

Alexandra Ranch combines luxury with a rustic hill country flair in the Texas wine country. Most of the best-known wineries are within 20 miles of the property.

Absolutely no weddings, large events, bachelor/bachelorette parties or the like are permitted at this exclusive, private residence.

Because we are not a wedding or event venue, we do not accommodate more than 10 persons (up to 2 persons per bedroom, in 5 bedrooms).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the most beautiful estate in the most beautiful part of the Texas Hill Country, hands down. We came with 4 other couples and had an absolutely wonderful time around the pool, jogging the perimeter of the ranch, and just relaxing. We will definitely come back again and again.

Beautifully furnished house with large kitchen with Wolfe double oven/6 burner stove and Subzero refrigerator. Towels and linens are first class. Pictures don’t do justice to this outstanding property.

Beatiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 4 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

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.

In 2017, we will be renting the main home and will no longer offer bed-and-breakfast.

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).
