We welcome you to come enjoy the beautiful outdoors and dark sky on a scenic 110 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country. This Canvas Bell Tent is in a shady grove of mature Live Oak trees with a gorgeous hillside views and a view of the Blanco River valley. You will need to provide your own bedding. The canvas bell tent has a 12' diameter and is over 8' tall at the center. Ideal for a couple but easily suitable for four guests. This campsite is secluded and private making it the ideal place to unwind after a stressful week. Our property is conveniently located in Blanco, Texas less that 50 miles from either San Antonio or Austin and in the heart of the Texas wine country. You will enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails, scenic hilltop views, solitude, beautiful spring fed creek, bold sunrises and sunsets, and a brilliant night sky on this property. We have numerous old growth hardwood trees including Live Oaks, Spanish Oaks, Elm, Escarpment Cherry, Black walnut, and Ashe Juniper (cedar) one of which has the largest circumference in Texas. We have a wide selection of native and migratory wildlife that calls this place home including white tail deer, wild turkeys, foxes, bobcats, jack rabbits, road runners, seasonal songbirds and butterflies. We are just minutes away from Blanco State Park and a short drive to Pedernales Falls or Guadalupe River State Parks.

Bill and his wife were excellent hosts. They took the time show our children their chickens and even gave some beautiful eggs. We will definitely return again!

William is an exceptional host. His communication and attentiveness really punctuated a great weekend for my fiance' and myself. The pictures and descriptions online are accurate and the space is private and welcoming. Beautiful sunset and access to other great hill country spots like the Blanco River, Fredericksburg etc. I need to mention that when I was in a pinch and my party lights were not working, Bill came up the hill after a text and let me borrow some of his own that worke. It helped me have a great night with a beautiful woman that I had just proposed to. Nothing but great memories here. Thank you hosts.
