About the Ranch

The Good Life

Landowner, Meridith Nussbaum, puts it best, " A place born out of story and filled with even more. For family and friends, this abundantly serene and tranquil landscape has a way of filling our souls and drowning out the noise. Whether knee deep in the waters of Cypress Creek, high above in a Hill Country blind, sweating on the sideline of the artificial football field, or plunging into the horizon line pool, one way or the other, we lose ourselves and a sense of time enjoying all that the ranch has to offer."

The Accommodations

In addition to the Main House and Pavilion as the central gathering places at the ranch, the Dog Trot, Airstream, and Lodge offer plenty of room to accommodate five families comfortably. Meridith's keen eye and a modern ranch aesthetic insure that all the spaces are warm, welcoming, and kid friendly. And because she is an adept hostess, bedding configurations can be changed depending on the type of group and number of people.

The Location

An hour outside of Austin at the end of Hamilton Pool Road, you find yourself transported to an idyllic Hill Country paradise. While Cypress Creek, a fishing pond, and the hillside pool provide plenty of options to escape the Texas heat, multiple fireplaces, a central fire pit, and outdoor living areas are the perfect places to come together on cool evenings during family gatherings, holidays, and special occasions.


The Land

Relax under the shade of the Cypress trees on the banks of the spring-fed creek or watch whitetail deer roam under the Live Oaks and Pecan trees while casting your line at Sloan’s Beach.
