About the property

3 master suites, 2 guest bedrooms, & 4 full bathrooms - sleeps 13 comfortably

Stunning 2 home estate in the heart of the Texas Hill Country in Wimberley, TX. Located 35 miles from Downtown Austin, 10 minutes from Jacob’s Well, Blue Hole and is surrounded by local wineries, shops and restaurants. Wolf Creek Ranch is a very private 11 acre retreat perfect for families and small groups.

The log cabin Ranch House has a wrap around porch on all sides with chairs and porch swings. It has a large master suite with king bed and private bath, two queen bedrooms with a shared bathroom with a walk in stone shower, and a sleeping sofa for one adult or two small children. There is a well-equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a massive hardwood table that seats 16.

The Lodge has two oversized King suites each with their own private baths with walk in stone showers and deep, copper soaking tubs. The great room has comfortable seating, a towering stone fireplace, copper table for 6 and a party bar. The Lodge is a stunning show home made of massive hand-hewn timbers from an 1820’s barn in Gettysburg, PA.

Both homes are impeccably decorated by the homeowner, HGTV designer, Bex Hale. The homes boast an eclectic mix of rustic and modern furnishings; think Restoration Hardware meets the Wild West. Rooms are filled with interesting artifacts like the ten foot wide, 200 year old church doors from Guadalajara that make up the headboard in one of the master suites. Windows and doors were salvaged from a mid 1800’s home on the Jersey Shore, and the ceilings are adorned with reclaimed wood and antique pressed tin molding. Relics Ranch was the star of last year’s annual home tour and is an impressive example of Hill Country finery.

The homes, about 30 yards apart, are connected by a poolside party cabana and outdoor kitchen with tables and chairs, BBQ grill, fridge, ice maker and a bar. The hot tub and adjacent pool look over a stone fountain and with views of the garden. The stone patio has a wood-burning fireplace with ample seating. There is a spacious yard with lush grass shaded by large oak trees that play host to hammocks and swings. The entire yard is enclosed in a stacked stone fence. There are dozens of indoor and outdoor games for kiddos and adults alike. Also provided: a pack n' play, crib, portable toddler sleep sack, and travel high chair.

The ranch is home to friendly pets: Rufus, the horse and mini donkeys, June Carter and Loretta Lynn graze freely outside the stone walls and are especially popular with kids. Birdie, the ranch kitty, is quiet, friendly and roams in and out of the ranch house keeping it free of unwanted critters. Relics Ranch is the perfect place to enjoy all the Texas Hill Country has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Relics Ranch was the perfect place for our stay in Wimberley! We adored the tasteful and stunning decor in the home. It made us feel welcomed in comfortable during our stay. The house was very accommodating and we found everything we needed. The pool was great and so very relaxing. We loved the peace and quiet of Relics Ranch! We would definitely recommend this place!

Wonderful place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my mother's 70th birthday. We had kids ages 4 - 16 and they had a blast feeding the animals, enjoying the hot tub and just exploring the outdoors. The beds were comfortable and the large table in the kitchen was awesome for our family meals and game night. Birdie, the cat, became a good friend of mine that weekend :-)

Outstanding vacation property in the Dripping Springs/Wimberly, TX area

  • 5 of 5

We had spent some time choosing a property in the Wimberley/Dripping Springs area for our family in the days prior to my son's wedding.

On arrival it became clear that Relics Ranch was beyond our wildest dreams of what the perfect property would be! The property is so beautifully styled and yet so welcoming it truly has an idyllic location, complete with donkeys, horse and farm cat!

The owner was so sweet and helpful and lived close by should we have had any questions or issues (we had none). We have no hesitation in recommending this amazing property!

We all had such a wonderful time that we look forward to returning for family reunions in the future!

Weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Relics. It is a wonderful place to go with friends because you have access to two houses that allows you some privacy. The owners were also very responsive to questions we had during our stay. It is also well stocked with towels, condiments such as coffee and other conveniences.

This is a magical place!

  • 5 of 5

I chose this property for my family to stay at to attend my son’s wedding. We had an amazing time together playing, eating, swimming, talking, and relaxing. The owners were amazing and very hospitable. We would stay here again. It was everything we could have asked for and more. My grandchildren enjoyed feeding the cat, two donkeys, and the horse. We had a magical stay and made more family memories. Thank you to the Hale’s for a wonderful stay!
