Spanish Treasure Ranch in Texas

Host Annastacia Sequoyah says:

The site is an old south Texas farmstead that has had twoprevious homes here and for white settlers dates back to the early 1800’s. Thecreek that runs behind the property was a trail used by Indians and the Spanishto travel from Laredo to San Antonio. An old Currier/ Blacksmith shop once satnear the home site to the Southwest and serviced those travelers and cowboys.We’ve got some ghost stories!

This site has a constant breeze from the southeast and raptorbirds sometimes use the thermal updrafts to gain altitude. The secluded RV spotis next to barn at the back of the property and faces the hay fields, there isa walking path around the 23 acres, cattle come and go, a goat lives nearby andwild life is a regular occurrence in the hay fields. Wildlife area adjacent,there has been a Mountain Lion spotted there, along with turkey, armadillo,fox, coyote and more. Many raptor birds.

The ranch is sustainable with photovoltaics, (solar panels),water harvesting and compost toilet. The Sustainable Farmhouse is a Gold LEEDcertified.

The rural area is known for the scenic bicycle rides or motorcycle rides. We holdweddings at the main ranch house.
