Hello … and welcome to the Hillcountryranches.net web site!
Our rural Hays County community is located about 17 miles northwest of Wimberley, Texas—right off of Farm to market road 2325, just a few miles before Ranch Road 165 and the turn-off to Blanco, Texas. At the entrance, you’ll see our familiar “white rabbit” sign, a whimsical reminder of the days then this area was known for more than just solitude and scenic beauty, but for raising rabbits.
While the marquee posted next to the community mailbox warns newcomers with a friendly reminder that there are “No commercial businesses, No mobile homes” allowed here, the Hill Country Ranches community is known as friendly place to settle in the Texas Hill Country area. It’s an ideal location to live, work, and raise a family. In fact, you might even find a picture of it in the dictionary under “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
With its close proximity to the cities of Austin, San Antonio, San Marcos, Marble Falls, New Braunfels, and many other Texas towns, Wimberley and its surrounding Hill Country is the perfect “home base” for visiting much of the surrounding region.
There’s a lot to do and see, including hiking, camping, horseback riding in the hills, fossil and arrowhead hunting, and tubing on one of the many local rivers. Nearby sites to see include Blue Hole Regional Park, Jacob’s Well Natural Area, the Devil’s Backbone Scenic Drive, Lookout Mountain (Old Baldy), the EmilyAnn Theatre & Gardens, and Jack Glover’s Cowboy Museum.
Wimberley has an endless supply of quaint shops and one-of-a-kind eateries, too … Every first Saturday of the month, you can shop till you drop at Wimberley Lions Market Days. A new H.E.B. grocery store is now the hub of local commerce, along with a brand new Ace Hardware (rebuilt after the fire destroyed the original building in 2013).
Rated as one of “America’s Ten Best Small Towns” by Travel Holiday Magazine, Wimberley is indeed a “little bit of heaven” in the Texas Hill Country.
