Stunning two home estate in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Located thrity-five miles from Downtown Austin, ten minutes from Jacob’s Well, Blue Hole and is surrounded by local wineries, shops and restaurants. Relics Ranch is a very private 11 acre retreat perfect for families and small groups.
The log cabin Ranch House has a wrap around porch on all sides with chairs and porch swings. It has a large master suite with king bed and private bath, two queen bedrooms with a shared bathroom with a walk in stone shower, and a sleeping sofa for one adult or two small children. There is a well-equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a massive hardwood table that seats sixteen. The Grand Lodge has two oversized King suites each with their own private baths with walk in stone showers and deep, copper soaking tubs. The great room has comfortable seating, a towering stone fireplace, copper table for 6 and a party bar. The Grand Lodge is a stunning show home made of massive hand-hewn timbers from an 1820’s barn in Gettysburg, PA. Both homes are impeccably decorated by the homeowner, HGTV designer, Bex Hale. Relics Ranch was the star of last year’s annual home tour and is an impressive example of Hill Country finery.
The homes are joined by a poolside party cabana with tables and chairs, BBQ grill, ice cooler and a bar. The hot tub and adjacent pool look over a stone fountain and with views of the garden. The stone patio has a wood-burning fireplace with ample seating. The ranch is home to friendly pets: Rufus, the horse and mini donkeys, June Carter and Loretta Lynn graze freely outside the stone walls and are especially popular with kids. Birdie, the ranch kitty, is quiet, friendly and roams in and out of the ranch house keeping it free of unwanted critters.

"We had a great time getting away with a few other couples. The property is truly one of a kind. Both houses are are gorgeous inside and out and very uniquely decorated. Everything was very clean, and the kitchen had everything one would expect and then some. We spent a great deal of our time in the pool which was spotless when we arrived. We had a few things come up during our stay and the Hale's were VERY responsive, even coming out a couple times personally to check on things. We also enjoyed feeding the animals! We will definitely be back, and thank you for the wonderful stay!!!" - Jonathan A
"Our family arrived from Iowa, Florida, and Washington DC for our vacation. Everything was great and it was one of the most relaxing times we have spent together as a family. We have a 9 month old, two-three year olds, a 7 and 10 year old plus the parents and aunts and uncles. There was so much space and the amenities were great. We found everything we needed. The little ones were able to have naps as needed and we had comfortable space for everyone. Definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to spend quality time with family and friends!!" - Patricia W
"Folks, as a Native Texan returning from California, it was a pure joy to be able to host my Texas family members for Thanksgiving at this unique and spectacular Wimberley country estate. From the entryway greeting by the 2 burros, to the high-end copper dual bathtubs, every moment of our stay at this estate was emblazoned with unique, luxury touches. The perfect way to rent this property is to rent the entire estate - both the luxury 2-master suite log cabin, AND the more rustic country cabin. Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed themselves - from our luxury, private wine tour throughout the Wimberley area, to our home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner at the unique 13-14 person dining table, no amenities were missing. 11of us stayed at the estate, and we had more guests join us for daytime events and outdoor campfires. You can do everything at this property, from feeding and caring for the burros, to having late night fires in the exterior fireplace - to hottub nights, to peaceful, private soaking baths in the luxury bathrooms. It was perfect to have use of the owners' cookware for our large Thanksgiving dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and created so many fabulous family memories that we will hold dear for years to come. THANK YOU!" - Kelly W
"We stayed at Relics Ranch for a girls getaway weekend and had the most wonderful time. The houses were perfectly decorated with all the amenities you can ask for. We had a blast lounging by the pool, feeding the donkeys and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The house is a short drive to town where there is shopping and restaurants and a walk away from Wimberley Winery. This is the perfect spot for a large group of people to get away for the week. I highly recommend Relics and their wonderful owners!" - Lauren M
"We just LOVED staying at this ranch! It is everything and more we could have ever expected or wanted in a vacation home, and we will most definitely be back. The owners thought of everything, and the home is decorated most beautifully. My husband & I felt like we were in a movie set! The property was manicured, yet rustic...clean, yet comfortable...and the layout of the home and outdoor space was artistic and well thought out. Highly recommended!" - Meagan U
