All of the bedrooms are in separate detached cabins/rooms.
There is a wrap around porch that faces a courtyard garden and a back porch with views for miles and amazing sunsets.

The name “Full Moon Ranch” was inspired from having an amazing dad with a 36 year past career at NASA. He planned and directed the space missions and moon landing.He always 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. We cherish our time when we are here but enjoy sharing the magic of the place with others when we are not.
Ideal for groups of 8-10 but can accommodate more if arranged.
Perfect for reunions, work retreats, friend retreats, winery tours, social gatherings and special occasions.
Please no more than the amount of people booked for lodging on the property unless otherwise arranged with owner.
No fireworks please.
IMPORTANT: We ask that you arrive before dark if it is your first time visiting the property as the turn in can be hard to find if you have not done before.

Perfect Retreat Atmosphere
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!!!
We are so thrilled you loved your stay. You and your family are welcome anytime, thank you for such a wonderful review!!
Perfect Hillcountry Escape
Best Mother’s day weekend ever! The views and accommodations were so incredible. There are many points of interest close by, which gives you plenty of things to do.
Liz was a pleasure to work with!!! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to get away .
Perfect location for relaxing weekend with family or friends
Beautiful location, comfortable and welcoming amenities; we had a great time!
Very relaxing property
The house was perfect! Location was perfect as well! Close to my son's wedding made it special!
Five Stars Isn't Enough! The Full Moon is the BEST!
Our family rented the Full Moon for the parents and grandparents of the bride to stay during our daughter's wedding weekend. The Full Moon is an amazing property. It is obvious that it was built with love - there is such incredible attention to detail. And it was clearly designed as a comfortable gathering spot for friends and family - nothing was overlooked. We stayed for 3 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. I am certain we will be back! Everyone who stopped by to visit was stunned by the beauty and the amenities. We had 8 adults that stayed for the weekend - everyone had plenty of space and privacy - and the beds were so comfortable. We hosted a 14 person welcome dinner and everyone had plenty of room. Thank you so much! The Full Moon is simply the best!
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!
The Full Moon Ranch is located west of downtown Dripping Springs by roughly 5 miles. The charming Texas Hill Country towns of Wimberley and Johnson City are 20 miles away and Austin is roughly 30-35 miles away.
