We had a blast!!! Pitched a tent on the top deck, hiked to the lake, and cooked outdoors every night! Hot tub was awesome as well. Can't wait to come back!

Love This House

  • 5 of 5

I love this house! This was our family's second time to stay at this home in Canyon Lake. Ranch Retreat is very spacious and clean. The master bedroom and bathroom are huge. The kids enjoyed watching the deer in the evenings. We all loved the hot tub. It was a great experience for all, and we plan to return soon! Patty and Craig, thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Top Notch Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation stay in a new home with amazing views of the hill country and Canyon Lake. We had a great time feeding the deer. The third floor deck was spectacular especially in the evening as we watched the shooting stars. Will be back!

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family met at Ranch Retreat for a Mother's Day family reunion / birthday celebration. What a treat! Beautifully decorated home, amazing hot tub with a view of the Texas Hill Country, comfortable bedrooms, and a beautiful view of the stars at night from the third floor deck.

We enjoyed easy, short driving access to put our boat in the water, restaurants, and hiking trails.

Thank you Patty and Craig for a wonderful stay!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for the weekend because I was in a wedding down the road. This whole experience could not have been better! The house was very clean and the rooftop deck was to die for - talk about a view! We spent every morning having coffee on the deck enjoying it! They also have a great hottub, which was perfect for relaxing in the evenings. The owners are very accommodating - any questions I had were answered almost immediately. I would highly recommend this property for anyone who is planning a trip to the Canyon Lake area!
