2-Home Luxury Estate on 11 Acres designer interior

Bedrooms 5
Space 5,000 sq. ft.
Property type estate
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


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. 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 Grand 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 Grand 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!

Gorgeous family gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family was able to gather and enjoy beautiful surroundings, comfortable luxury accommodations, and peaceful outdoor fun. The children loved the pool, feeding the donkeys, and playing on the tree swings. The adults loved the lovely sitting areas, sounds of birds, all able to eat around a table for 16. The kitchen is fully equipped. Many games, pool toys are available. Everywhere you look is something interesting and beautiful. We hope to come again!

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfection; from the weather to the accommodations to the location. I can't say enough about this Ranch, but if I had to pick one thing that I loved most it would have to be the outdoor fireplace. It's where we started the morning with coffee and ended the evening with cocktails. We look forward to a return visit soon!

Amazing location for a girls' getaway or family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Relics Ranch is a wonderful vacation getaway. It has everything you could possibly need or want - beautiful landscaping and pool, amazing (the best!) beds and bedding, and an expertly appointed kitchen. The outdoor kitchen and fireplace are perfect for late night drinks and watching the stars. It's a magical place.

Comfortable and super fun!

  • 5 of 5

The beds and bedding were absolutely wonderful. The decor is quirky and beautiful. This ranch is so much fun and we loved the ranch cat and feeding the donkeys. So glad we chose to rent this property for our girls weekend.

Makes an impression!

  • 5 of 5

Rented Relics Ranch for my husband's 50th birthday. 5 couples total, which seemed to be the perfect amount for this property. The house is nicely appointed, and is super impressive! We are animal lovers so we loved the cat, miniature donkeys and horse. It was fun to feed them every morning. The house is stocked with everything you'd want, and has some unique dish ware. Beds are comfy. We did not get to use the pool, because it wasn't warm enough, but we did use the hot tub. We enjoyed the outdoor kitchen and spent quite a bit of time out there. Over the years, we've rented several places in the Wimberley area and this is definitely among the best. The owners are easy to work with and very responsive. I'd highly recommend Relics Ranch for a memorable weekend.

Totally Texas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Relics Ranch for my youngest daughter's graduation and loved it. We had 4 generations on the ranch ranging in age from 2 to 80. Everyone had a wonderful time and had plenty of room to visit. We loved the outdoor space and feeding the mini donkeys and horse. We would recommend Relics Ranch to everyone!

Relics Ranch is located 35 miles from downtown Austin and only 10 minutes from Blue Hole, Jacob's Well, and downtown Wimberley. An ideal location for wine tours as it is only half a mile from the Wimberley Valley Winery and less than 10 minutes from 4 others. The ranch is also just 20 minutes from the world class San Marcos Outlet Malls. This estate is a great option for wedding parties and wedding guests. Old Glory Ranch, Memory Lane Event Center, Montesino Ranch, and Camp Lucy are just a few and all are less than 15 minutes away.
