The Yellow Rose Ranch
Tarpley, Texas

If you are looking for a true Hill Country Ranch experience, this is it! The Yellow Rose Ranch is located in one of the most majestic areas of the Texas Hill Country. The property is designated as a birdwatcher’s destination as it is a perfect habitat for many species that are rarely seen elsewhere. Of course the wildlife abounds on the 500 acres of canyons, valleys and mesas that encompass the ranch and is a photographer’s delight. This is home to the head waters of the Hondo Creek and the water gently runs throughout the valley with three lake areas providing excellent catch and release fishing. The five homes are creek side and secluded. This is a perfect setting for large family groups to gather or for the couple who just wants to get away from it all and commune with nature. The pavilion is available for family gatherings, reunions and weddings. Catering is also available for events with prior arrangement.

Guests have access to the entire ranch for hiking and are invited to explore the ranch. Full access to the ranch is restricted if hunters are on the property. All the houses have a fully equipped kitchen, charcoal grill and all linens are provided. Most homes are equipped with telephones, high speed internet service, Smart TV's, Netflix, plus there is moderate to good AT&T cell coverage. RO drinking water system and water softener system. No firearms or fireworks.
