The Lodge is a true showplace with a 40-foot ceiling and thick walls of native cut stone with faded red planking from a Hill Country barn. Features include a massive stone fireplace, a turn-of-the-century wood bar, and chandeliers crafted from wagon wheels.
The heart of the ranch, the Chuckwagon, is comprised of the restaurant, banquet room, offices, three half baths and a commercial kitchen.
Available lodging for guests includes four old log and frame cabins with historical intricacies such as Kerr County’s first schoolhouse, an 1850’s stagecoach stop and the first post office from Boerne, along with separate rooms and suites throughout the headquarters.
The Amphitheater is one of the newer additions to the ranch’s list of available entertaining venues. Able to accommodate many guests, the Amphitheater is the perfect location for concerts, conventions, and outdoor gatherings.
The introduction of exotic wildlife to the ranch occurred in the 1950s when Charles Schreiner III decided to bring herds of deer, sheep, and antelope to live at the ranch. Today, some herds of exotic animals outnumber those found in their native countries.
