The BK Ranch Guesthouse


Property Description

The shade of the largest live oak tree in the county falls on the sprawling 130 acres of the BK Ranch! It's called the Forever Tree, & it marks an intimate getaway vacation rental just outside of Pipe Creek. The warm & welcoming guesthouse provides elevated balcony views of the surrounding Hill Country, & the amenities inside & out assure you'll make your fondest memories in hospitable comfort. The serene setting is also close to towns of Bandera, Pipe Creek & less than 1 hour from San Antonio!

Your approach to this awesome getaway cabin promises something special! One of the first things you'll see at the BK Ranch is a one-of-a-kind sculpture of a horse, constructed with horseshoes. Peaceful Bear Creek courses through the property here, providing a pristine and natural setting where nature lovers can view various species of local wildlife and birds. (Please be aware the creek levels may vary upon season and recent rainfall.)

Feel free to explore the 130 acres of the ranch! There's outdoor seating provided, some located right in the shade of the Forever Tree. Our visitors tell us they love the romantic setting, and look forward to returning to create new memories here. Your lodgings are on the second story, so you'll have awesome mountain views from the balcony at the guesthouse. The entire ranch is picturesque, with beautiful settings where you can commit those memories to treasured photos. With that in mind, be sure to check out the big Lone Star mural on the barn! You'll also have access to a gas grill for those tasty outdoor BBQ cookouts. We ask our guests to keep in mind that BK Ranch is smoke-free.

Inside the guesthouse is spectacular, paneled in rare and radiant redwood. Natural light gives it a friendly glow, and efficient air and heat units, as well as ceiling fans, help keep it at your comfort level. Fresh linens are provided for the king-sized bed, which provides blissful slumber for two in your romantic escape. The full bath features a tub and shower combo, and there's an extra half-bath, too; both include clean linens. Plenty of appliances, counter space, cooking ware, utensils, glasses, and even complimentary condiments can be found in the full kitchen! There are two smart TVs here, so bring your favorite apps and Roku for entertainment; the guesthouse also has Wifi Internet service.

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?

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.”
