Welcome to your hill country getaway. The ranch guest house is built hillside with a bridge so both the house and pool area (outdoor kitchen) are wheelchair friendly! The newly built guest house is waiting for you with flat screen HDTV's in every room, queen beds in both bedrooms, large living / kitchen / dining open floor plan, WIFI and dish network for the tv's. The views are amazing! Great picture opportunities. The sounds and sounds of the wildlife are awesome! We are close to a few wedding venues and wineries. Helicopter tours are available for additional fee (depending on weather). Ask owner for details.
We live on the ranch in the main house with our twin 10 year old boys. We live an active lifestyle and are always moving around!
Chad Varnell purchased this house in 2013
We have a laid back, easy going lifestyle and you will enjoy the peace and quiet.
New built house, pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen with propane BBQ pit and wood BBQ pit. Did I mention helicopter tour? (additional fee applies, ask owner for details).
My sisters, mom, and I were celebrating her birthday and wanted a country place to see the stars, enjoy the fall weather, and be together. Great views, loved the hot tub, house was big enough for us all. Chad was a great host. We had an extra treat in watching his helicopter take off. The place was perfect for what we wanted - close to Dripping Springs and the Salt Lick.
An amazing stay! Beautiful views of the hill country! The pool was amazing and heated! The only downfall, is the beds are super uncomfortable.
Family trip to Pedernales Falls and we stayed here. Loved the place, updated and wonderful view!
Loved every minute of our stay here. We were in the Hill Country for our daughters wedding and we could not have picked a better place. The home, pool/hot tub, view, and hospitality was exceptional. The helicopter tour was an added bonus. We will definitely be back. Thank you Chad and family from the Duttons 😀
We had a wonderful time. Weather was great, house was clean and comfortable, the Varnell family showed such kindness to my daughter with Autism. Truly, from the bottom of my heart thank you. Will recommend to friends and family. The Kennedy family
While this place was not initially what we were looking for in the beginning it worked for us. We were looking for a house with a pool for some along quiet time with lots of swimming and floating in the pool. Turns out we were staying at a second very nice garage apartment on the other side of the pool which is connected to the house and not the apartment. The homeowner assured us that we could use the pool all we wanted and we didn't in fact. We had the pool all to our selves the entire week. But it still was a little uncomfortable knowing they were in the house and we were in their pool. But all in all we enjoyed the stay. Seeing deer out the windows especially in the early morning. And being high on the hilltop there was always a nice cool breeze.
