Located between Medina and Vanderpool, this fantastic family vacation getaway is perfectly located in the Texas Hill Country!

History buffs are in for a treat; the ghost town of Tuff is on the same road that leads to the retreat. Stop by and check out the original buildings that were once home to this bustling village!

Nearby Jackson Creek is spring-fed, so the water here is always beautiful. Try your hand at catch-and-release fishing, bring your kayaks or tubes along for a private float, or BBQ there at the charcoal grill; the pond is less than 1 minute walk from the home! Enjoy watching the roaming deer and turkey, relax at night under the starry skies and enjoy a chat around the fire pit, or fix some chow on the charcoal grill. The retreat's shaded patio has plenty of furniture and a picnic table; it's a great gathering space! Up to two inside pets are allowed at the retreat.at.

This thoroughly remodeled 1960s ranch house is designed with comfort in mind. Distinguished woodwork and corrugated metal highlights give it a personality all its own, with rooms and furnishings to make all your folks feel right at home. The 10 beds in the five bedrooms, and two-and-a-half baths, are equipped with complimentary clean linens. The big kitchen is furnished with modern appliances, and there's a washer/dryer combo. In warmer weather, we'll turn on the brand-new window AC units early, so you won't have to wait for cool comfort. For important business that can't wait, there's even a dedicated work space here. The TV comes with some free channels, and there's Wifi Internet (bring your Roku!) throughout the guest house, too.

What guests are saying...

Travis and Samantha
We had a great time at 3H Ranch Retreat! This place is perfect for family reunions with plenty of beds! It is filled with vintage furniture and decor. Our family had planned to go to Lost Maples while staying at 3H Ranch, but we were having such a good time and felt there was plenty to explore- hiking along the road and up a hill, the pond- that we decided to stay put and enjoy the ranch. If you want to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors with a big group- this is the place!
J Williams
I was with a group of men including my son in law and two grandsons. I highly recommend visiting here. Once you visit you will be anticipating a return trip. Everything as stated in the brochure is five star. The fish, wildlife and scenery is awesome. I highly recommend this location.
Jack Martin
First time in the Texas hill country and was not disappointed. Beautiful surroundings. Caught myself just sitting on the porch just enjoying nature. The house is awesome felt very nostalgic. Had everything we could have ever wanted and even the things we forgot. Trip was very relaxing. Looking forward to going again.
James Lewis
What a breath taking adventure. Went with men’s group from church. Can’t wait to go back
Lowell Ercanbrack
The trip started out with a draft some of the most scenic views you will experience in Texas. In the middle of the Texas Hill country we pulled off the main road driving through Texas history past wildlife of all sorts to pull into the ranch. We were amazed. The house was stunning. Tons of room and everything you would need for a great getaway. We had a large group and I was plenty of room for all of us plus many more. Once inside we got to experience the amazing ranch feel of the place. It had everything we needed. If we wanted to separate from the outside or if we feel like it great TVs with good Internet to watch a movie while relaxing. We spent many hours at the fishing hole where we had a great time catching and releasing fish. Hiking to the top and overlooking the amazing rock cliffs say hi like that for many. If you want a getaway just to relax or to spend some time in nature hiking and fishing This is the place for you. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Went here with our men’s group from our church. It was such a cool experience. I had never seen views like this in Texas. Got to spend a lot of time hiking and fishing. I loved it and I already want to go back!
