Dripping Springs House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 11

Escape from the bustle of the city onto a gorgeous 5BR/3BA Texas ranch, located just outside of Dripping Springs. Situated on the shore of Barton Creek, the ranch house sits on over 300 acres of true Texas beauty and offers guests hiking and biking trails amidst scenic bluffs and meadows.

In the surrounding area, you’ll find everything from wineries to high-end outlets, camping and hiking to drive-in theaters. It’s truly a choose-your-own-adventure type of Texas destination.

The ranch is over a mile from the nearest neighbor and is the perfect retreat for large families or wedding parties. We have great rates for all of Austin’s events – inquire about even lower rates for longer stays!


This 5BR/3BA Dripping Springs Ranch is an ideal vacation home for multiple families to retreat to, relax and enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

Comprised of two separate structures, the ranch features a main house and bunkhouse. The rustic main house comfortably fits eight with one bedroom with a king, one with a queen, two with two twins and two bathrooms. The 1BR/1BA bunkhouse accommodates three with a twin-over-full bunk for more private accommodations.

A volleyball setup is available for guests to enjoy and hammocks, a swing, and a screened porch offer more relaxing options.


Guests will take pleasure in having Barton Creek just steps outside the front door, and Hamilton Pool Preserve, one of Texas’ most famous watering holes, nearby. The ranch is also located just minutes from the Solaro Estate and Bell Springs Winery, and in the vicinity of other Hill Country attractions such as Salt Lick BBQ and the Duchman Winery.

The ranch is a 45-minute drive from Austin and less than an hour's drive from Fredericksburg and Luckenbach – two Texas cities with rich histories and even more activities for the whole family. Half an hour's drive will take guests to San Marcos, where the Premium Outlets offer shops catering to every taste and budget, including Armani, Calvin Klein, Cole Haan, Elie Tahari, Michael Kors and Prada, just to name a few.

Enjoy the many activities within the vicinity that are true to Texas, such as the drive-in Corral Theatre in Wimberly as well as Wimberly Days, the second largest outdoor market in the state.

Just minutes from the Ranch entrance is the Pedernales Falls State Park where you’ll find camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and other activities on the river.

The Ranch House is one mile from the Texas Hill Country Olive Company, an artisanal organic olive orchard that offers tours. Also offering fun Hill Country excursions are the Bluebonnet Wine Tours where guests can sample delicious wines from the numerous local wineries.

Beautiful ranch style home

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this property. We even had an issue with the codes for front door and front entry gateat midnight upon our arrival and Turnkey rentals was able to remotely change codes instantly! They have 24 hour help desks to assist with any such problems. The property was beautiful and the porches couldn't have been better. Close proximity to all the brewing and distilling action off of Fitzhugh Road. Couldn't have had a better time at this beautiful location.

Home and Grounds Beautiful with a few issues

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this a property this past weekend while we were attending a wedding at local venue. The property itself is stunning and actually love the feel of this home. I will say to the owner the water smell was horrific and smells up the home. After a while it was better, but still was strong with sulfur smell. The beds were uncomfortable and some were dirty with crumbs in the bed. The home wasn't very clean and should be professionally cleaned. There were spider webs on dining room chairs where they are easily seen and where my grand baby was crawling. I would love to honestly stay again sometime if these issues are resolved because it's warm and the grounds are stunning. When I called the turnkey group originally I was given the front door code ,but had to call back several times because no one relayed that we needed a gate code and another code for bunk house as well.

Best Regards

Cheryl Klaus

Extremely dirty

  • 1 of 5

We rented this home to stay in for our sons wedding. We arrived the day of the rehearsal dinner only to find the property had not been cleaned. Beds were unmade, looked like someone had just crawled out of them. Bugs were everywhere, dead and alive. The pilot light on the oven was not covered so it was very dangerous for our 1 year old. Spider webs everywhere, even in the sink. Trash on kitchen counter. Screened in porch looked like no one had cleaned it in months. Furniture was on the master bedroom bed. I could go on and on. I also have pics of how we found the home. It was not what was shown on the website. Would never recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write in your concerns, and speak with our Guest Experience team on the date of your check in. We are so sorry that due to a scheduling error between the professional carpet cleaners and our housekeeping vendor this home was not ready at check in. We had the porches professionally power washed after mud had been tracked in from a previous guests' country hike. We are so sorry to hear you decided not to stay at this beautiful home, and wish you would have allowed us the opportunity to make this right. We sincerely appreciate you leaving your remarks so we can better improve this home for future guests, and extra attention has been given to this home. - The TurnKey VR Team

Beautiful property, Roomy house

  • 3 of 5

The property was beautiful, great place if you want to get away from the daily rat race and be in the outdoors. House was roomy, large kitchen, that is a plus for our family.

Getting to house may surprise some people if you never driven on ranch road. if it was raining you could get stuck in some areas if you were in a regular car and you would need a major car wash.

The House is a older house, the smell when I first walked in reminded me of my grandmothers house.

My brothers, sisters, sons & family friends loved the setting and the house.

The biggest disappoint was a lot of maintenance issues. lights not working, no light bulbs in lamps, freezer not freezing, front door knob latch broke while we were there, toaster not fully working, Wash machine was working properly (your requested to wash towels when you leave.)

It was a nice place, I would have given it a higher rating if their would have been so many maintenance issue. I didn't list all the smells in house, but there would be people that would ask for there money back.

It reminded me off a upscale scale deer lease.

For what it cost to stay there I feel the owner should keep up the maintenance issues. If you have a problem your not going to have someone show up in 5 minute as if you were in a hotel.

I Probably would stay there again unless I was give some type of money back guarantee if there were so many issues as my family and I had.

Private Getaway

The property manager was more than helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This home was a wonderful surprise! Remote, private, quiet, spacious. Property is in need of some required maintenance. VRBO did not email us all the required codes to enter the property itself, or the bunkhouse. Location was very convenient to Ma Maison where my son was married. Get supplies on your way to property due to the distance from a grocery store.

great family spot

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for a long Thanksgiving weekend. It rained the whole time but it didn't matter because the home was warm and cozy. It was a great spot for our group to get together. There were 7 adults, 2 preschoolers and a baby. There was plenty of room. the home is beautifully decorated. It is quiet and relaxing. The only issues we had were the bathrooms. There are 3 counting the bunkhouse but we ended up only using the master because the water smell was so strong. The one in the bunkhouse wasn't usable because of the strong sulfur smell. I know this is a "country" thing but it did make it hard for all of us to share the one and we are not high maintenance people. We made it work with only the one tv in the bedroom but those who really care might be disappointed. We were told there was wifi but there isn't really because it never works. But for our weekend not having the distractions of the outside world was a bonus. I would highly recommend this location.

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, thanks for taking the time to write us. This home is on a well system, and we apologize for the sulfur smell during your stay. We are looking into additional treatment options to mitigate this issue when it comes up, and guests can call us 24/7 with any problems they may experience. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us despite a few adjustments and would highly recommend this home to others! We hope you'll consider visiting again during nicer weather as we have several outdoor hammocks, a horseshoes game and a lovely firepit perfect for roasting marshmellows you weren't able to take advantage of during the rainy weather. Have a wonderful year! -The TurnKey VR Team
