Overview

About the property

Main house w/extra 4 cottages and a vintage 1964 Shasta trailer. 5 bathrooms.

Full Moon Ranch is perched at an elevation of 1500’ at the top of a ranch road in the lovely Hill Country town of Dripping Springs, TX. The main house serves as the entertaining area with the kitchen, dining room, and living room.

All of the bedrooms are in separate detached cottages.

There is a wrap around porch that faces a courtyard garden and a back porch with views for miles and amazing sunsets.

Come and never leave during your stay or you can take day trips to the hill country wineries, breweries or to the downtown Dripping Springs shops, dance hall, bars and restaurants.

Other day trips include Hamilton Pool, Reimers Ranch Park, Pedernales Falls State Park, Blue Hole, Driftwood, Johnson City, Wimberley or Austin.

The name “Full Moon Ranch” was inspired by our dad who had a long career at NASA planning and directing the space missions and moon landing. He wanted a special place for friends and family to gather and enjoy nature, the stars and each other. A space to be free, creative and to hit the reset button. As a family, we cherish our time at Full Moon and can’t wait to share this magical hideaway with you.

Please no more than 8-10 people on the property unless otherwise arranged with owner.

IMPORTANT: We ask that you arrive before dark if it is your first time visiting the property and to respect the marked boundaries to avoid trespassing on neighboring land.

Perfect Retreat Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive at the gate and begin the ascension to the top of the hill you may wonder, "what am i getting into"? However, when you crest the hill and arrive at the property your doubts begin to cease. This property was perfect for us. We were in Driftwood for our Daughter's wedding, which probably tells most our emotions when we arrived and we had other family as guests with us. The property is uniquely laid out; leaving room for intimacy and gathering spaces for larger crowds. The rooms were impeccably clean, the court yard is beautifully landscaped, the main house was immediately welcoming, the kitchen is huge and what words can begin to describe the view from the large deck onto the surrounding hills? Serene, inspirational and totally relaxing, to name a few. This is one of those properties for which the photos are the real deal. We WILL definitely be staying here again and not just only with a large group; just the two of us. The Host Family was super accommodating and could not have been friendlier. Our review is 5 Stars +++ You want to truly enjoy the Hill Country with unimpeded and non-developed views? Stay here!!!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three nights in Jan 2018. The property is beautifully situated on a hill with stunning views—and sunsets! Near to Dripping Springs (and Camp Lucy, where my daughter was married). Great open space in the main area with a fabulous kitchen. Master bedroom is huge w beautiful views. Huge shower! Wish we’d had time to sit by the fire pit and chill. But as I’ve told Liz, the owner, we’ll be back. Just perfect!

Great, charming and quiet family retreat with all the necessary comfort

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our family for Christmas and New Years holiday in the Full Moon Ranch, doing lots of outdoor activities. The cosy fireplace thereafter formed the center for long discussions and games.

We highly recommend this retreat, as it offers all it describes and is well maintained.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Full Moon this Thanksgiving and loved the set up of the main space and separate living quarters. The evening views are spectacular from the back porch and front garden. The location is convenient to some of the most special sites in the beautiful Hill Country. The owners could not have been more accommodating. Enjoy!

Really awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. Beautiful views, very comfortable accommodations, great for our family! We enjoyed the main house for viewing football games, hanging out together and meals. The master cabin was super comfortable, the bed was amazing! A lot of space to spread out. The cabins were so comfortable, everyone commented on how quiet the property is and how much they enjoyed it. Liz was great to work with and we truly look forward to coming back.

Great place for our family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

The place is amazing! We stayed here for my son's wedding. The view was gorgeous and the furnishings had great attention to detail. It has a beautiful spot to gather in the main house and privacy in the separate bedrooms. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Liz was fantastic. She was quick to answer questions and super accommodating. Thanks for everything!
