NEW / IMPORTANT PREFACE: We want to say up front that we take very seriously our responsibility to do everything within our reach to keep everyone as safe and healthy as as we can, while you have a relaxing, health-building and fun time with us!. This includes the following:

First of all is our location:  We only have 9 cabins / suites for rent which are all private and spaced apart and in middle of 30 acres of fields and woods, so plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors without any human contact. Then, all cooking can be done in cabin and/or on grills we provide, so no need to go to any restaurants... Even all our "extra-fun" Animal Adventures and Horseback Riding activities have been modified so they are "private" - just for you, by reservation and conducted outdoors and at "safe-distance"...

 Upon each checkout, we ask all guests to cooperate in the safe-stay" procedures, with 3 simple steps: (1) wash their dishes with disinfecting soap we provide, air-dry and put them back in cabinets with doors closed, (2) put linens in plastic bags we provide and, seal and put by the door so we can promptly remove and(3)  take all garbage to dumpster .   Then we come in with face masks and spray every single surface with organic disinfectant and let the cabin air out while it takes effect, then go in and clean with disinfectant soap, all laundry is separately bagged and separately washed & dried in high heat. After cabins have been all cleaned out, we re-set beds with fresh linens and towels, new trash bags, cleaned / disinfected ac filters and filled up new coffee condiments. A final disinfecting of floors and doors are locked so no one can come in till you get here.

Our location is also ideal: At Home Away From Home Ranch, it feels like you are a million miles away from everything, yet only 10 minutes from Main Street of picturesque Boerne in the heart of the Texas Hill-Country, close to all grocery stores, Walmart, etc as well as all the fun activities in San Antonio, Kerrville, Fiesta Texas, Bandera, Sea World, etc.

Bring your pets, your kids, family - or run away and don't bring anyone! Just enjoy our heavily wooded yet fenced-in, and manicured hideaway with plenty of trails and fields to run in. Our dozens of animals are very social - it's like an open petting zoo! You can enjoy all our animals, from African Boers (and bottle babies), to miniature donkeys, ponies, mini-pigs, puppies, etc., 

We have 9 different, "one-of-a-kind" cabins of different sizes and prices, comfortably housing up to 40 "campers" with all the comforts of home (thick posturopedic mattresses and high-end linens, bathrooms complete with thick plush towels, shampoo, etc,  fully equipped kitchens with coffee makers, refrigerators, fresh ground coffee, cream, etc., dining options with in-cabin and in-nature tables, complete with dishes, silverware, etc., - even wine glasses & free Netflix! ) yet each cabin has plenty of privacy / woods, and are just a few steps away from your parking spaces. 

This first cabin, Hansel & Gretel, is the most private, tucked into the farthest corner of the woods, with lovely views from your porch, with majestic oaks, big cedars, campfire & BBQ grill.

Whatever you would like, we can probably give you a great getaway, from total privacy all the way to DOING IT ALL FOR YOU: From bringing magic to quick getaways with intimate/romantic candle-lit dinner under the stars, to anniversary surprises like chocolate covered strawberries and wine, birthday parties, or an unforgettable Hill Country wedding with hundreds of guests - All especially customized just for You; all set in hundreds of beautiful live-oaks of a national nature preserve... 

You can choose to just "get away from it all" with your favorite 2 or 4-legged "animal friend" (yes we are very pet friendly)... Maybe learn to ride a horse or cook your favorite gourmet meal...All private (extra fees apply as appropriate) or make it an ideal hub to explore The Hill Country!With the owners personally overseeing each guest's needs, we are dedicated to helping you make your travel planning very easy and vacation unforgettable.

This is a beautiful ranch. My two daughters loved it. They especially loved the horse riding. Victoria was great and Mickey was a natural at horses, teaching about horses and getting my daughters to trust him as they cantered and galloped. The girls will never forget this trip, and I feel like this trip has in some way changed their lives. It was very relaxing for me as well, and the cabin was very comfortable. Another cool part was how friendly and free-roaming all the animals were. They come right to your cabin and let you pet them. The girls can't wait to go back!

If you like animals, this is probably up your alley. My 6 and 9 year old kids loved it. The cabin is well done and rustic, but not fancy. The owner is responsive and eager to accommodate. Mickey gave us the farm animal tour and trail ride, both were very good. He does a very good job of keeping everyone engaged and explaining the relationship between the animals and the land.

A hidden gem so close to home! We had a wonderful time! We went for our sons 11th birthday and it was definitely a memorable one. We were greeted by sweet goats and donkeys when entering the ranch. We had such a wonderful time on the activities that were had planned. The bird sanctuary was so much fun. We not only got to feed the birds, and hold them, but we also got to chase the Emus. Our horseback riding was a full hour long. We also did the farm animal encounter. We got to feed the pig, and even hold the baby goats. We learned so much from the ranch owener Mickey. Vicky his wife was so accommodating as well. The cabin was a decent size and was enough for 2 adults and 2 kids and a 4 year old. The kids had a blast and we will definitely be going back!

This ranch was so amazing and beautiful, but the interactions with all the animals was what sets this place aside from all other Hipcamp experiences. We brought our two kids (under age 10), and we did the animal excursion along with horseback riding. So worth the money, Mickey spent so much time with us showing us everything and teaching us about the animals, we got to hold and pet so many different animals and even got fresh eggs to cook for breakfast! Horseback riding was well over an hour and everyone was accommodated with the perfect horse, my littlest on a pony. I spoke with Vicky numerous times setting up our visit and planning the activities, she was so pleasant and warm every time we spoke. We would definitely recommend this place, especially for families, and we plan to go back!

Our cabin was super cute and cozy. We had a bit of trouble locking the door when we left but we felt super safe and didn't worry about it. The property was beautiful and private. We hardly saw anyone else and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The best part of our stay was the farm animal adventure tour where we learned many different things about the various animals that live there. We were super impressed by the fact that most of the animals on the property are rescues. Our hosts were very responsive and welcoming. We would definitely be back!

Nice three day get away with the family. My kids ages 9, 7, and 4 had a blast on the animal and aviary tours. The cabin felt secluded, had all the basics we needed, and the beds were comfortable. Bouerne, a small charming town, is 10 minutes away from the ranch, and has a decent selection of restaurants and a nice HEB.
