About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 nights
Two quiet cabins with beautiful oaks and live water in the scenic hill country.
Hike the trails, canoe in the lake, or simply watch the wildlife from your porch. Close to wedding venues, wineries, distilleries, breweries, state natural areas, local festivals, shopping, and of course Austin.
Main cabin features a full kitchen, 1 bedroom (queen bed) with a full bathroom, a living room with sofa and 3 chairs, and a dining table that seats six. Large screen TV with Roku (access to Netflix, Amazon TV, and a ton of other streaming channels). Free password protected WiFi.
Spare cabin features 2 bedrooms (each with queen beds), 2 full bathrooms, living area with a sofa, tea table for two, and a kitchenette.
We've stocked both houses with coffee amenities, drinks, snacks, and necessities like toiletries, first aid kits, tools, bug spray, etc.
There's also a laundry room stocked with laundry supplies and a spare refrigerator/freezer.
All new beds, couches, chairs, mixed with some antique furniture.
The whole place is yours when you book - if there's just two of you, then you'd probably be perfect in the main cabin - if you have a group of people, there's plenty of spillover room in the second cabin. We will never book the place with separate groups (once you reserve the place, it's all yours).
The rate does change after the first two guests, so please enter an accurate guest number when you book.
Sleeps 6 people in queen beds - up to 8 people if they do the couch thing. Extra blankets, sheets, pillows provided.
You have full, private access to the cabins, fenced yard, lakes, and surrounding hiking trails - approximately 30 acres is all yours.
If you would like use of the kayaks or canoes, just let us know - all that's required is a signed Water Waver Release. Lifejackets provided. Due to insurance restrictions, no swimming in the lakes. Fishing is welcome.
There's a Weber charcoal grill, outdoor stone fireplace, and a large outdoor space with evening tree lights.
Interaction with Guests
Private - we live on the property, away from the cabins. We are available 24/7 for questions or assistance, and are always happy to meet new people.
This is a peaceful, private ranch with livestock in fenced pastures. It is only 5 miles from Dripping Springs and close to a variety of hill country attractions, towns, distilleries, wineries, and wedding venues.
These cabins are located in the country - no real public transportation (except taxi cabs or Uber/Lyft from Austin). We are 28 miles west of Austin and 5 miles west of Dripping Springs.
Plenty of parking at the cabins, including two covered slots in the carport.
If you enjoy bicycling, we are located along Creek Road - a great country lane that leads to many cool backroad rides.
If motorcycles are your thing, this is a perfect base for some of the most scenic riding in Texas.
Other Things to Note
Property is completely fenced with security gate access. Cabins are located toward center of property, below some bluffs and adjacent to the North Lake. Cabins have approximately one acre of fenced yard.
In order to best protect our guests and ourselves, we provide a rental agreement that must be signed by both parties.
Here are some highlights:
No guests under the age of 14 years.
Pets are allowed (must meet basic requirements and sign Pet Agreement). Smoking is allowed in outdoor courtyard only - not porches or indoors.
Otherwise pretty basic stuff, like don't throw rocks at the horses. We'll provide a copy prior to booking.

A Hill Country gem!
Double Dam Ranch is everything and more that you could ask for if you're looking for peaceful seclusion, finely appointed accommodations, and a location that can't be beat. We visited Austin, Wimberley, Pedernales and Enchanted Rock and enjoyed the property as well. The lakes are beautiful and filled with fish and surrounded by other wildlife. Laurie and Denman are wonderful to work with and extremely responsive in all regards. We even received a lovely tour upon our arrival from Denman and during our stay were given our privacy with ample acreage to enjoy in an idyllic setting. What more could you ask for?! Oh and they are pet friendly too! So our fur baby came along and enjoyed the vacation with us! We were all sad when it came to an end and we had to return home. We hope to be back in the near future and have already boasted to our friends and family how amazing Double Dam Ranch is!
So good to meet y'all and glad you enjoyed our place! Looking forward to the next visit sometime soon... :)
Thanks for being awesome guests!
Peace and quiet in the hill country!
The property is beautiful. Enjoyed sitting out under the trees and just relaxing.
Gorgeous accomodations. .great host. Delightful weekend!
If I could give this property more stars, I would. The cabins and property are amazing, and we had a very relaxing family trip. We mainly stayed at the cabins and canoed, fished and walked on the property. The owner is exceptionally nice. The cabins were very clean, beds were comfy, kitchen was very well appointed. I would highly recommend, and would love to stay here again!
My husband and I were looking to get away for a long weekend with our dog and the Double Dam Ranch was the perfect spot! It was quiet, peaceful, nicely decorated and it’s in a great location for checking out the local wineries and breweries. Laurie was wonderful through the whole process and we can’t wait to come back!
No hastle, peaceful place to stay.
Owners are very down to earth and hospitable. The place is very peaceful and the cabins are great. The Double Dam Ranch beats any hotel or motel I have ever stayed at. Instead of staring at 4 walls, you can set outside on the stone patio and enjoy nature by the outside fireplace. If you like you can enjoy a little fishing too.
Will stay again, would recommend.
Great striking distance for local distilleries, breweries, wineries, state natural areas, and of course all that Austin has to offer (SXSW, F1, MotoGP, ACL Fest, etc.)
