About the Ranch

Scenic Hill Country Landscape

The ranch lies on the western edge of the Hill Country among the limestone cliffs, spring-fed waters of the South Llano River and magical Blue Hole. The ranch terrain ranges from river bottom to rolling hills covered with live oak and shin oak groves, lacey and chinquapin oaks, persimmon, cedar brakes, the occasional redbud, Texas sophora and elm trees. The Golden-cheeked Warbler, a small songbird that only nests in Texas, has been spotted on the ranch, as has the Black-capped Vireo.

The Accommodations

The original ranch house lies on the banks of the South Llano River, surrounded by a stand of large live oaks. The two-story home is comfortable with enough room for two families looking to get away from the city and enjoy the serene waters of the river and the rolling countryside.

The Legacy

Three generations of Vandivier have stewarded this land and continue efforts to restore the forest, streams and grasslands to their native state. The ranch has received numerous state and national awards for the land stewardship, including the prestigious Leopold Conservation Award for using sustainable land-management practices.


From Our
