On the Ranch

The Crooked Rooster Barn

The Crooked Rooster Barn is the hub of the work area for our ranch. You are welcome to visit and peruse the eclectic décor. Collegiate banners adorn the walls from the working days of a now retired Big 12 football official. An antique train station bench provides seating for the flat screen T.V. Our Glory Hills Ranch covered wagon is used for chuck wagon dinners for larger groups such as retreats and family reunions. We’ve been known to turn out the lights, turn up the stars and dance the night away!

Big John’s Pond

The pond is a small stocked pond that is perfect for novice or beginning fishermen. Poles and tackle are available for rent. We use barbless hooks because of the catch and release policy of our Hill Country cabins. Feel free to bring your own pole! A wise old fisherman once said, “Hours spent fishing are not deducted from a man’s allotted time on earth.”

There are more than 12 great golfing venues including TopgolfWestin La Cantera Golf Club and Tapatio Springs located less than an hour away. If you would like assistance in arranging a tee time or need information on the venues, please request a call back from our golf consultant. He is also available to accompany you to venues if you need a golfing partner.
