About Calf Creek Ranch
Welcome to Calf Creek Ranch where you can retreat from your daily routine. Sit on a swing by the fish pond under 100+-year-old live oak trees, sip a glass of tea and catch a cool breeze. You are on a working cattle ranch owned and operated by the same family since the 1880s. The Ranch House at Calf Creek is over 130 years old, with light fixtures originally designed for oil. The ranch has bluffs where Native Americans camped and surveyed the countryside. Scattered around the ranch are Native American mounds, burial sites, and artifacts. The land is typical of the Edwards Plateau of Texas, with mesquite, prickly pear, and live oaks. So come, relax and become a part of the history of the Real West.
