The vibe at Aat the Ranch, 30 private acres
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Solitude Sanctuary is a unique, eclectic property with so many fun features. The host, Janice, built the house herself on land that has been in her family for over 100 years! Janice was sweet and hospitable from the get-go - we loved getting a tour of each room and hearing stories about her family history. Every room is full of personal touches that make the space feel like home. I loved the yoga and meditation loft upstairs! With multiple rooms and bathrooms and a HUGE kitchen and living room area, this house would be perfect for a large group. Janice graciously shared her dinner of rice and venison sausage with us that night, which we demolished a few bowls of each (I can’t guarantee a delicious homemade dinner for other campers, though:) )
We did not stay in the house, but instead set up our tent on the property. With over 30 acres of land on the property, there is plenty of room to set up your tent however close or far away from the main house you choose. We set up our tent down by the pond, which is about 400m away from the house (the perks of this spot are easy access to the bathroom/outdoor shower and the reflection of the starry night in the pond). After chowing down on Janice’s homemade meal, we got in the hot tub and star gazed for well over an hour. The night sky was incredible - there is hardly no light/sound pollution from the nearby town of Castell, so we felt very much immersed in the outdoors. This property is a great home base for further exploration into the nearby town of Fredericksburg or Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.
Janice is working on several different projects on the property - several outhouses for future campers, a garden, an orchard - so there were tools and bags of mulch stacked around the house. But the construction never interfered with our experience! We had a great time, and I can’t wait to visit this property again in the future.
We had such a wonderful time at the Ranch. We showed up with 4 kids under the age of 9 in tow and Janice was so amazing. The property is beautiful, Janice is such a lovely host. Bathroom and outdoor shower are very helpful and more than we expected. We will definitely return again soon!
