The Lighthouse

The 86 foot tall Lighthouse is truly a one-of-a-kind structure that was inspired by Saxon towers in Germany but was built with a Texas touch.  There is absolutely nothing quite like it anywhere.  Sitting on the top of a prominent hill (which is itself over 200 feet high), the Lighthouse provides 50 mile breathtaking views.  In fact, the entire fourth floor of the Lighthouse is an eight-sided observatory with large windows that are specifically designed to maximize your viewing experience (there's also a wet bar for those that want to enjoy a cocktail while they soak in the views).

The Lighthouse includes 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, and sleeps 9 people comfortably and 15 people with the use of couches & 2 full size beds that are inside the bean bags in the secret room (all linens are provided).  Just like our other homes,  you need only to pack your overnight bag.  We have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The nightly rate for 2 people is $660 per night.  For each additional guest (over the age of 2), its $25 per night per person up to a max of 15 people (so if you have 15 people staying in the home the nightly rate would be $985 plus tax.)  We have a two night minimum (except three nights on major holiday dates).  Click on Rates & Policies for additional information.

The first floor of the Lighthouse consists of a great room with a large living room (made for entertaining), a full size kitchen (nestled inside limestone rock arches at the base of the tower) and a dining room with a 10 foot solid wood table that elegantly seats 10 people for dinner.  The kitchen is furnished with coffeemaker, pots, pans, stove (with double ovens), refrigerator, microwave, glassware, dishes, silverware, linens, serving bowls, cooking utensils, misc. spices, knife block, toaster, etc.  The living area has stone floors, leather furnishings, and an "old world" decor.  There's a 55 inch flat screen satellite TV (with movie channels), a DVD for rentals, and an internet connection.

The first floor contains two bedrooms, including the master bedroom with a king size bed, an en-suite bathroom, and a large walk-in shower.  This bedroom includes large stone-lined windows that provide a magnificent northern view of the negative edge pool and the surrounding countryside.  The second bedroom on the first floor also has a king size bed and a bathroom that is only a few steps from the door.  This bedroom provides a beautiful southern view of the ranch. 

The second floor of the Lighthouse includes a bedroom with two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom.  There is a secret room near this bedroom that is especially made for children.  Your children's quest is to find the secret door into the secret room (adults who enjoy old movies can probably find this door relatively easily). 

The third floor of the Lighthouse contains a twin bed, a full bed, and an en-suite bathroom.  Leading from the third floor to the fourth floor is a spiral staircase that takes you up to the observatory.

The Lighthouse also includes a private negative edge pool with built in hot tub, and a slide going down to a splash pool for the kids.  The views while sitting in this pool are amazing.  There is also a wrap around stone deck next to the pool that has a fire pit to enjoy those star filled nights.

The Lighthouse has an additional separate coded gate entry so only guests staying at the Lighthouse can access it.

The Lighthouse is available for weddings, reunions, corporate parties, and other events.  Any event held on a weekend requires a 2 night minimum stay.  We do offer one day events during the week (Monday through Thursday).  After Thanksgiving the house is decorated for Christmas and would be perfect venue for a corporate Christmas party during the week.  Please contact us for more information about what we have to offer and whether we can accommodate your group size for these types of functions.

During your stay your have access to the entire ranch as well as the hot tub and waterfall grotto located on the banks of Miller Creek and starting June 16, 2014 the swimming pool and hot tub located at the Arc de Texas.

If you wish to bring your dog or your horse we have accommodations for them as well.  The yard is fenced for your dog.  For horses, this is the ideal house to have them.  The house is surrounded by 5 acres of pipe fence pastures with paddocks, a water trough and feed trough.  There is also a run-in and a tack area to keep your tack and feed dry.  The rate for dogs is $15 per night per dog and for horses it is $25 per night per horse.

We think the Lighthouse is a great addition to our ranch and to the Hill Country.  To check availability on the Lighthouse see the availability calendar below.  If you wish to make a reservation simply click on Reservations or give us a call.

 

 

The Lighthouse Availability

     Green means the Lighthouse is available,      red means the Lighthouse is booked, and
      Dark Green means the Lighthouse is available, however your access to the ranch will be limited to the 289 acres (including the north fishing pond) that surround the Lighthouse (a 10% discount will be given for this limited access).  From November to mid-January is deer gun hunting season in Texas and the remainder of the ranch will be leased by various hunters.       Grey means that special rates apply due to the days are preceding the F1 race in Austin.
