This home has a magnificent view of the IXL ranch from the oversized deck. There is a large oak tree with a fire pit for relaxing after a day of antiquing, fishing, etc. You can even bring your own horse. Come enjoy the country!
This home is a great get away from the city. It is close to many cute antique towns, including Bellville, Warrenton and Round Top. There are horse stalls and a private paddock available if you have your own horse. We also have trails to ride or hike on and several fishing ponds. We have recently added a fenced in area in the front of the home for those who bring dogs.
Guests will have access to the over 200 acres of land, 3 fishing ponds, 2 riding arenas, trails and other facilities (if you have your own horse), grill and fire pit.
Interaction with guests
We will be on site so if guests need anything during their stay, just let us know.
Other things to note
Upon arrival, you will have coffee k-cups and 1/2 dozen farm fresh eggs.
We want Rancho Texcelente IXL Equestrian Center to be a great experience for you.
This is a full time ranching operation and we are a close family place; please behave with that in mind.
Please respect your surroundings and observe these policies:
oLimit alcohol consumption and drink responsibly.
oNo smoking in the houses or other facilities and only discriminately on the porches.
oWe welcome pets (we have dogs, cats, chickens, cows, and no one knows how many horses), but please either keep your dog(s) on a leash or within close proximity to yourself.
oDo not damage plant life or animal life--- observe livestock from a distance and avoid contact with all animals, domestic or wild.
oBuild campfires only with permission of ranch management.
oPlease keep your litter contained and before leaving, put all trash in the garbage bin located to the left of the barn near the trailer parking area.
oNo discharge of fireworks or firearms unless OK’d by management.
oPlease practice catch and release fishing unless you will definitely eat the fish you catch.
oAvoid ranch equipment and other tools.
oSupervise your children at all times.
oBeware of snakes and other wild critters—THIS IS TEXAS!
oLeave the facilities and grounds in a neat and clean condition. The dishes and coffee pot should be cleaned and the trash taken to the dumpster. However, we prefer you do not make the beds when your stay is over—we will wash the laundry.
We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining our operation.
We have chosen to open our gates to guests.
We will do our best in helping you enjoy your time here so you will look forward to a return visit and we will look forward to having you back.
