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!

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Ranch Retreat. This was the perfect destination to celebrate our anniversary. Patty and Craig are amazing hosts, they make you feel like the most welcomed guests. They truly have thought of everything! We enjoyed our days just hanging out at the house. The drive to various excursions wasn't bad at all. We highly recommend Ranch Retreat & are planning our next trip back soon! Thank you, Patty and Craig, for a wonderful home for our vacation!

My 2 small dogs stayed with our family for two nights, and it is a great place to stay. Beautiful and peaceful location with wildlife galore!

I had no problems or issues with absolutely anything while staying there and the owner was very nice easily accessible if needed.

The House was very clean, spacious and comfortable with a beautiful view.

I honestly couldn't have stayed at a better place! We already miss it!

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!
