The vibe at Fishers Of Men Ranch Home
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Katz and her husband are passionate dreamers, who clearly wish to share not only their home, but their 38 acres with anyone who comes to stay with them. They have so many hopes and dreams for their property, and because of that it is always changing.
You come onto the property to a dirt drive that leads you right up to your parking spot by the house. The home houses 20+, and was perfect for even our small group.
While the house was nice, we enjoyed their property even more. The campsites are lovely, there are cedar trees, oaks, and various cacti. We saw lots of wildlife, but the foxes and birds were our favorite. The lake levels fluctuate, but we were still able to enjoy sunset over the cliffs! Be sure to ask about the water, but know that the property is just minutes away from lots of lakes, rivers, and parks!
Marble falls is about 5 minutes away and full of shops, coffee, and grub! About an hour or so from downtown Austin. The house is perfect for groups, and the primitive campsites/RV sites are incredible, and have car access.
