Set on a private, gated 74 acre ranch with 900 feet of Lake Travis shoreline surrounded by The Texas Hill Country, ACME Ranch is the PERFECT getaway for large gatherings. While it provides luxurious accommodations, it also has all the amenities you can imagine, and once you arrive, you will not want to leave. Amenities include free WiFi, satellite television, Sonos wireless stereo system, a floating boat dock, swimming pool, spa, chipping/putting greens, horseshoe pit, washers' pit, outdoor chess game, basketball hoop, foosball, ping pong table, pool table, bicycles. If you love exploring, bring your mountain bike or 4 wheeler since there are 74 acres for you to enjoy! There are now walking trails throughout the property. You can even bring your horses! The location is perfect because although it feels secluded and private, you are very close to Lago Vista (This home is closer to Lago Vista than it is to Marble Falls.), great restaurants, golf, wineries, paint ball, zip lining, etc. It is only 40 miles from downtown Austin.
Acme Ranch is designed to give guests privacy and solitude while offering many gathering opportunities, from intimate weddings (not to exceed 30), family reunions or business retreats. It has a main residence, cabin and a bunkhouse and offers flexibility for sleeping arrangements up to 30 people.
The pristine surrounding area of limestone formations, rolling hills and many trees provides a very unique environment. There is also a 6 acre fenced pasture so you can bring your horses as well!
Inside the main residence, there's the essence of sophisticated design: clean, simple lines and first-class materials. It blends space, light, and art beautifully with its high ceilings, open, airy rooms and stained concrete floors. It offers a sense of grandeur, all encompassing quality from its meticulous details to its broad architectural designs, and a designer's touch with striking uses of natural stone, metal, wood, and artistic glass accents. This is completed with comfortable fine furnishings throughout.
The spacious open floor plan of the kitchen, dining and living spaces is ideal for entertaining friends, family and coworkers. To satisfy your culinary needs, the kitchen has been stocked with all the amenities needed to prepare for a quick meal or for a formal dinner. It has gorgeous limestone counters, wood cabinets, double oven, two refrigerators, large pantry and Dacor appliances. The open floor plan allows interaction of the guests whether they are cooking, sitting at the breakfast bar, playing a game of pool, watching television, or simply relaxing and enjoying the view.
With each of the beautifully decorated bedrooms, it's easy to see that ACME Ranch is a vacation home of substance and style. The Master Suite has a king size bed, office, dressing room and a luxurious bathroom with great views of Lake Travis from the jetted tub. There is also an outdoor shower adjacent to the bathroom. Each of the two guest rooms has a queen bed, three twin beds and a private bath. The main residence sleeps 12 comfortably.
Transition seamlessly from indoors to outdoors by opening the expansive sliding glass doors. The living space extends to a large covered lanai with an outdoor kitchen and additional seating. It offers alfresco dining and relaxing possibilities with panoramic views of Lake Travis that will delight you. Stay a while and enjoy an amber sunset over the lake and hillside.
Cabin: The original homestead has been updated and is a perfect companion for the main home. With beautiful glass mosaic accents, full kitchen and an inviting interior, it offers a quiet getaway from the main home. The covered front porch encourages you to linger. It has 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, futon, full bathroom and sleeps 4-6.
Bunkhouse: The bunkhouse is on the second floor of 'The Barn.' It is a spacious, open room with bunk beds (6 twin beds, 2 full beds), a futon, foosball table, a kitchenette with microwave and small refrigerator and sleeps 10-12.
The outdoor setting with all of the available activities gives this home a very unique advantage over most vacation homes. The combination of Lake Travis, The Texas Hill Country, and a private ranch will completely remove you from any stress and worries you might have had, leaving you revived and renewed. Acme Ranch is the essence of a luxury vacation home—and a little bit extra. The property is lakefront and you can enjoy water recreation like boating, fishing, skiing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming in the lake. There is a boat slip with a lift available for your use. (You can launch your boat less than a mile away at Gloster Bend.) There are also 2 paddle boards and a 3 person sit on top kayak. There are some basic fishing poles so you can try your luck fishing off the deck. (Please bring your own hooks and tackle.)
If you would like to explore the area around the ranch, there are 3 adult size mountain bikes and 3 kids bikes. Walking trails have also been cut so you can enjoy the quietness outdoors.
With all of its amenities, once you arrive, you will not want to ever leave!!
