Property Description

You know the saying, "Everything's bigger in Texas," right? Well, you'll live it up like an old-time cattle baron at the gigantic 4,000-square-foot 7 Canyons Ranch Lodge! It's the perfect choice for large outings, like family reunions, corporate getaways, or any gathering of friends. The accommodations here sleep up to 28, and there's plenty of room for entertaining! Do your next getaway Texas-style, perched in the beauty of the Hill Country, with Tarpley and Bandera close by!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. We have 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies, while witnessing the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

*** ONLY lower-story suites (space for 16) are available for 2024 eclipse ***

The 7 Canyons Ranch Lodge in Tarpley is one of the biggest properties we have available at Backroads Reservations, and this massive, kid-friendly space is also one of our most popular. There are amenities here you won't find just anywhere, like a hot tub, fire pit, two huge fireplaces, caterer-style kitchen, a pool table, and even a meeting/conference room. Indoors and out, there's plenty to do here-and you're guaranteed to do it all in style!

Before we go inside, we'd like to point out that the lodge is on a spacious 500-acre ranch, where miles of hiking trails, perfect fishing spots, observation decks to spot zebras, elk, buffalo, deer and many other exotic species roaming the property, and outdoor seating all give you the chance to take in the great outdoors as only the Hill Country can present it. There are also smaller properties here that can be used by couples who'd like more privacy; ask us for details when you book. A fire pit and grills are here to add to your outdoor enjoyment.

All that, and we haven't even stepped indoors-and there's a ton to see there! Inside, there are eight bedrooms, each with their own private bath with shower, with sleeping accommodations for up to 28 people. The dens provide roomy entertainment space that sets the stage for large groups without feeling cramped. The huge kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, cutlery, and service dishes you would need, and all bedroom and bathroom linens are provided. There are also bar and dining areas with ample seating. All rooms come with central air and heating, and the public spaces feature large-screen satellite TVs with DVD players. Wireless Internet service is also provided. If you're looking for a big vacation rental with great amenities, the 7 Canyons Ranch Lodge is absolutely perfect!

The Hill Country is Wine Country!

In the past two decades or so, the wine industry in the Hill Country has exploded with growth. That’s easy to see, with new wineries opening at a rapid pace...but we, and some of our readers, have questions. How are productive wine regions discovered? Are there official wine producing areas, and if so, how are they designated as such? This article will dig a little deeper into these questions and more.

A Handy Hill Country Q & A

At Backroads Reservations, we’re especially aware that the Texas Hill Country is reliant in a big way on tourism. We’re proud to welcome people here, and to introduce them to our own little corner of heaven. With that said, we’re also aware that everyone can’t be from here; we have a tongue-in-cheeksaying that “I’m not from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.”

A Park By Any Other Name: Hill Country WMAs

Visitors to the Texas Hill Country are generally aware of the state, county, and city parks available to them for recreation and relaxation. From the sprawling 12,000-plus acres of the Government Canyon State Natural Area to the modest but still impressive 16 acres of Old Tunnel State Park, there’s plenty of space and natural diversity to explore, not to mention parks of wildly varying sizes!
