See the fence in the trees? That is Austin City Limits. We (on the left) are outside the city and the park (on the right) is inside the city limits. Our road is private and we are at the end of that road. You will not be bothered here. It is your own private oasis, just minutes from the excitement of Austin in all of its weirdness.

Don't come to Texas unless you stay on a Texas Horse Ranch. 550 acres of the most beautiful public park for walking, jogging or just enjoying the Texas countryside. Full bedroom, kitchen and just 12 minutes from downtown, 17 minutes from the airport, 1 1/2 miles to every store and restaurant imaginable while staying in the midst of a serene, peaceful setting.

The space

Literally on Austin City Limits, we are just outside the city for privacy and right next to the city for convenience. Less than 2 miles to SouthPark Meadows, with 100+ stores, restaurants, theater and just about anything else that you can think of. Hop on I-35 for a short trip to Austin central, easy trip to the airport and even closer to the Circuit of the Americas (Formula One) race track. If you are bringing your own cars, they are safe on the ranch where nobody can bother them.

Guest access

The Montana has its own patio porch, plenty of space to park your car, and you are welcome to visit us in what we call the Coffee Shop in the mornings for just breathing the fresh air and learn the local color. Please don't pet or feed the horses without permission first, ok? You have full access to the adjacent 550 acre park, with miles of hiking trails, through our Elfin Forest, over cactus ridge and down to the creek that can be accessed from different locations.

Interaction with guests

We live here on the ranch, so we are available most daylight hours. But if you want to be left alone, that is good with us as well.

Other things to note

We do have very friendly, totally non-aggressive dogs, but they usually stay away from the guests, just wanted to make note for those who like dogs. There are occasionally puppies to socialize.

Excellent hospitality and I was made to feel incredibly welcome from the minute I arrived. Chuck and Francie are some of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of staying with and nothing was too much trouble. I had no car and Chuck was more than happy to drive me out to get groceries and even dropped me off at the airport. If you are looking to experience a real Texas ranch or I'd highly reccomend this place.

Chuck and Francie are FANTASTIC! Very friendly, helpful, and kind. They LOVE their ranch, and are very excited for you to learn about it! The location is fantastic, just outside of Austin, for a quick jaunt into town. I would LOVE to stay here again!

My first time visiting Austin was the best trip I have ever had. Chuck and Francie made it so welcoming and had everything I could possibly need for my one week stay. It was clean, roomy, and comfortable. There were fresh eggs from the chickens for me in the fridge! Throughout the hurricane they made sure I was safe, and had everything I needed meanwhile I never lost power or wifi. I learned so much about the ranch, and loved the tour I went on where Francie explained the beginning of it all, and what they do to make their ranch successful and so beautiful. I had my privacy as well and could come to them for anything. Francie is a delight and she was so kind to come apartment looking, and has the best conversations. I felt like I had come to visit family. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you both so much for helping make my trip an experience of a lifetime! Definitely moving to Austin.

This is a amazing place to stay that's quiet and secluded, yet close to downtown Austin. The owners are friendly, the area is beautiful, and it's fun to play with the gorgeous dogs they own. We are definitely going to come back here for any future Austin visits.

Chuck and France's place was exactly what we were looking for. Convenient to Austin and its southern suburbs, yet remote enough that we could relax after a long day of zip lining or kayaking. Their hospitality was wonderful; make sure to leave time in your schedule to sit and chat with them and hear their stories!

Chuck and Francie were absolute gems. What a wonder to stay at a Texas horse ranch while being so close to all of the beautiful experiences that Austin has to offer. It gifts a feeling of being secluded while being so close to everything in the city and they are just getting started!

Our love of the land has come from our years of caring for animals and the environment. As a geneticist, I have worked with rare and endangered breeds and species for four decades and am proud of the work that we have been able to do. Until recently, our ranch was a private breed…
