Why Cecilia Hager chose Mountain Home
The Texas HIll Country has special memories for many because of the summer camps in the area. The scents, breezes, water and feel of the Hill Country are like no other.

Damage and incidentals

After 14 years of a Summer beach gathering- our family had to find a new spot to meet. Chinquapin was an amazing find. 32 people, ranging in age from 18 mos to 87 yrs old- and everyone had a great time! The rooms/cottages were welcoming and beautifully decorated. The lodge and main kitchen were beyond perfect for preparing meals, visiting, eating, doing puzzles, playing games and cards and just relaxing. The water was refreshing and wonderful for swimming, floating, kayaking, paddle boating, rope swinging and just enjoying! The two ponds offered fun fishing- bass and perch.
The Rec-room and playground, basketball court and volleyball areas were both put to good use.
Highly recommend having Maria make you breakfast one morning. It
The owner and foreman were both so kind and accommodating, answering my questions leading up to our stay and during our stay.
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Chinquapin! Even our more 'tough to please' family members said it was 'top notch'!! It is a little piece of hill country heaven! Grateful to have had the opportunity to stay there!
Thanks so much!! So glad young and seniors had a fantastic time. Please do come back and enjoy Chinquapin again. We would love to have your wonderful family...
5 Stars are definitely not enough!!!
great place for fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, or just laying in the hammock. the accommodations are amazing. we can't wait to go back.
Yay! Looks like a great time was had by all. Thanks so much for this kind review and hope you can return...
I never take the time to write reviews. I am quite discerning and often critical. Chinquapin was wonderful in most every way. I highly recommend it.
Thank you so much for this kind review! It means so much and we are so pleased that you had such a great time. Do come back soon!!
Don't make me leave!
We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We were guests for a wedding party and were SO surprised how they had thought of everything. From shampoo and soap in the showers to kayaks in the pond and everything in between. We have a baby and there was a refrigerator near by and kitchen facilities and so many great outdoor spaces to explore and enjoy. We loved the fire pit and the game-room and trampoline were over the top amenities you just don't get elsewhere, let alone on a ranch! Thank you so much for a great weekend and wonderful experience for our family!
Wow! Every part of your stay was so appreciated and we appreciate you, too! Many thanks and hope that your group can return next year.
Magical Family Gathering
Chinquapin Ranch was even more beautiful than the lovely pictures on the website. It was exceedingly well maintained and the foreman was immediately there for any need that arose. The owner was superbly gracious. She recommended a family cook and her husband to us and we were treated to the most delicious Sunday brunch on our last day at the ranch. For the past 40 years, my family has gathered for a weekend vacation, our "Fling", and this is the first year any of us can recall that every single person, young and old, city and country folk, absolutely loved the place we gathered. No one wanted to leave by the time Sunday rolled around. The houses are beautifully maintained, and the decor is rich with history and perfectly suited for a hill country ranch. There is absolutely nothing that needs to be brought to the ranch for the kitchen, as it was completely stocked with everything you can imagine! We had an entire list of activities to do in and around Kerrville and Fredericksburg, but the fact is that no one left the ranch. We arrived on Thursday, and spent our entire days and nights on the property. We had baseball games, puzzle and ping pong tournaments, played basketball and badminton, enjoyed card games and washers, and so much more. The space is so large that there is plenty of room for people to spread out or be as intimate as desired. The shade of the large oak, pecan, sycamore and other trees was so enjoyable. The birds were an added bonus. Despite the drought in Texas, we thoroughly enjoyed the "pool", which is really the size of a small lake, as well as the paddle boat and couple of kayaks available for us to use.
Although we have rented many places over the years, we have never EVER had a place that so completely met the needs of each person in my family as was the case at Chinquapin. In the bucket lists of life, the Chinquapin Ranch is a must for anyone interested in a hill country adventure unlike anything else anywhere. We loved our stay, and this will go down in family history as the most magical family gathering we ever experienced. We are grateful and thankful for the opportunity and we hope we are able to experience Chinquapin again next year, or the next time a family wedding roles around. This would be an incredible place to hold a celebration. Thank you for the memories.
What kind words! So glad you felt the magic of Chinquapin. It truly is a special place where the young and old can build memories. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and can return one day. Best regards, Cecilia
