Fall Creek Ranch
Description: Fall Creek Ranch is a 99-acre paradise on mystical Fall Creek in western Travis County. The ranch can be best described as a naturalist's dream. From the crystal clear running waters of the cypress tree lined canyon to the 360-degree views on the hilltops above, the diversity of flora and fauna create an unparalleled ecosystem featuring everything that is treasured about the hill county.
Improvements: The ranch lodge is a spectacular, rustic, dog-trot log home built in 2004 and modeled after Texas cabins from the 1800's. The storybook 5 bedroom, 6 bath home was designed and hand-built by master craftsmen using a combination of both antique and reclaimed materials resulting in a masterpiece that has been featured in “Country’s Best Log Homes” magazine (Spring 2010).
The house was designed as a retreat lodge with “bunkhouse.” Sleeps up to 15 people (plus cot space on the sleeping porch).
Reclaimed materials, including antique shiplap and beaded board, used throughout (almost no sheetrock on walls or ceilings). Sources for lumber include a cotton oil mill in Seguin built circa 1890, and a church in Taylor built in 1901.

Water Features: Water is abundant on the ranch. Strong flowing Fall Creek runs the length of the property for over half of a mile and is graced by massive, towering cypress trees. The strong flowing, crystal clear creek creates picture perfect grottos, swimming holes, fishing holes, and rapids to explore. The relaxing and calming sounds created by the cascading water of the creek can be heard and enjoyed from throughout the home. There are also three ponds on the property, 2 of which are spring fed.
Wildlife: Deer, turkey, hogs, quail, doves, and free-range exotics all roam the ranch. The creek offers fishing opportunities, including white bass fishing in early spring when Lake Travis is full and backs up into Fall Creek.
Vegetation: Large majestic cypress trees, oaks, pecans, persimmon, pecan, walnuts, elms, buckeyes, flame leaf sumacs, and redbuds to name a few all thrive on the ranch. Texas A&M consulted to restore this pasture to a native tall grass prairie. This pasture has deep, rich soil, unusual for the hill country.
18 acre fenced pasture with a pond and well for livestock.
Marvelous scenic hiking trails and off-road trails for ATV’s.
