We're happily retired partners loving life in this wonderful oasis... And working hard to make it a bit better for our animals and guests, every single day. Mickey's recently retired from 21 years traveling the world with International Joint Special Forces and Vicky's a Cordon Bleu Chef who also recently retired.  We are living our dream "retirement" in this gorgeous wooded Texas Hill-Country, caring for and playing with all sorts of fun animals and welcoming lovely people to our ranch/wildlife preserve/nature- resort, personally ensuring everyone has a memorable experience, from customized horseback-riding experiences (everything from trail rides, to horseback riding lessons to weddings and vows-renewals on horseback), to serving as concierge to preparing that special "made to order" fresh country breakfasts, champagne brunches and romantic or fun meals and treats like chocolate covered strawberries for any special occasion, including anniversaries and birthdays.

Lindavista Cabin
The main cabin was great however I was disappointed to pay $100 cleaning fee and asked to take all bedding and towels used outside, and take all trash to a dumpster before leaving. The ranch is ok but the website definitely makes you think it’s nicer than what it is. Keep also in mind that there is no cell service and not much information when you arrive about the activities offered. Ask before arriving.

Horseback Camping In the Woods
Poor communication then blew up my phone followed by more poor communication. Way too many bogus rules, during eclipse, stated there would be bathrooms then there wasn't going to be any after purchase. Seems to be a theme.

Horseback Camping In the Woods
It was great! Victoria and Miguel were awesome hosts and the land was super nice. The pasture was super spacious so we didn't have to worry about any of the other campers. We got the home made breakfast and it was amazing, highly recommend. We had a great weekend and will definitely be coming back at some point!

Horseback Camping In the Woods
Not a good place for camping!
Host were nice, very helpful, just the camping area was bad, not toilets, I was feeling like a horse! The cost very high for what you got, $87 per night, super expensive!

I do not recommend tent camping her
HomeAway Ranch & Wildlife Preserve is not set up to properly serve tent campers. If you are going to charge $75.00 or more you must have some type of restrooms. Tent campers should not need to drive 5 miles back into town to use a restroom .

Hill Country Camp & Horseback Ride
Victoria was extremely nice and welcoming. Offered breakfast tacos for the eclipse which was convenient and delicious. The cabins on top of the hill seemed very nice from the outside. We camped down in a tent in a field for the eclipse. We booked on Thursday 4/4 for our trip Sunday thru Tuesday the following week. Unfortunately we found out about there being no toilet due to unforeseen circumstances after booking - wish that info would’ve been adjusted in the description before booking. We thought based on the listing we would be close to animals, but we only saw 1 donkey the whole time we were there which was disappointing. Probably should book the $120 animal tour if you want to see animals (the price benefits the animal sanctuary I believe so money is going to good cause). Location of the camp was great - very close to gas, restaurants, etc. Never found where the water pump was - asked and was directed to just use sink (where the pump goes into) in the kitchen area which was fine for filling water, but would’ve been nice to have pump for washing face, brushing teeth etc since didn’t want to get the kitchen sink dirty. Check in was a bit confusing. We waited in our car as instructed for 10 min for someone to come out but no one did. We ended up seeing someone at a house a bit up the hill and walked over there. I would come back if staying in the cabins instead of tent camping.
