Property Description

Arranging a large gathering of family, friends, or colleagues can be a real challenge. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get all those people under one roof, in a tranquil and picturesque Hill Country setting? Well, look no further! The Lodge at Forse Mountain Ranch near Kerrville has five bedrooms each having a private full bath, with sleeping space for up to 14 guests! This premiere vacation home is like having a private resort all to yourself, with water access and lots of amenities!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 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 and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

Deer and other wildlife roam the 170 acres at Forse Mountain Ranch, and you'll have access to several swimming areas (one directly behind the lodge- Please inquire about water levels at time of booking), as well as many areas for catch-and-release fishing (seasonal based on water levels. Inquire at time of booking). Paddle boats and kayaks are included, too! (Bring life jackets and towels for outdoor water use.) Hiking trails wind throughout the grounds, and the lodge is only eight miles from the Kerrville Cross Garden. Small pets are allowed with prior approval. For everyone's well-being, a signed release of liability is required.

Relax out front with a shaded porch and plenty of outdoor furniture! There's more seating out back, with sparkling lights and a fire pit that's perfect for snacks and conversation. If you're cooking something more substantial than s'mores, there are charcoal and gas grills for a proper BBQ feast!

This two-story vacation home was recently remodeled, with comforts like central heat and air, Wifi, and satellite TV blended with welcoming country touches. Warm up around a crackling fire in the den's wood-burning fireplace while you enjoy a game of pool, ping-pong, or cards on the tables provided for just such entertainment! The kitchen is fully decked out for your culinary needs, including a six-burner industrial oven and a separate large grill, a large-capacity coffee maker, crock pots, and cooking and serving ware. For your laundry needs, there's also a washer and dryer combo on site.

When it's time to turn in at night, the master bedroom downstairs has two soft queen-sized beds and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Three of the four bedrooms upstairs also have queen beds, and the fourth features a combo of queen and twin bunk beds. Each bedroom has a private bath, and there's an additional half-bath on the first floor. Your stay includes fresh linens for all bed and bath areas. A ranch cabin may also be available with space for four more guests; please ask for details.

What guests are saying...

The home we stayed at in Kerrville was amazing. It was on a lovely piece of land with tons of wildlife. The owners, Terry and Linda, live next door in their home and were so friendly and helpful. They answered all out questions and made sure we had everything we needed. The house was stunning on the inside, better than the photos! Every room has their own private bathroom which was so nice! The deer were so fun to watch! Highly recommend this home for large groups.
This was the most spectacular property I’ve stayed at and I’ve been in quite a few. It was amazing from the spacious house to the two ponds stocked with fish, the deer roaming around, the fire pit ready for s’mores and the porch filled with rocking chairs. These hosts have thought of everything and Tim kept checking on us and we felt very welcomed. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Each of the bedrooms has its own bath. The master bathroom has a shower that has multiple shower heads. If you’re wondering about the price, I can tell you it’s worth every penny. Even my husband said so and he’s tighter than bark on a tree! We all agreed it was a perfect weekend and we’ll be back.
