FAMILY REUNIONS AND RETREATS
Quiet Hill Ranch works very well for family reunions, friends gathering, and church retreats. Here's why. Four separate, cozy, one room log cabins are perched on the crest of Quiet Hill and all overlook the beautiful Doss Valley. The three original log cabins can sleep six persons in each cabin and have satellite TV, in room coffee, and a small fridge. Our new Handi-Cabin is wheel chair accessible and has its own full kitchen/dining area and can sleep eight. Soap, towels, and linens are provided in all cabins.
The separate, log main lodge has it all. The Lodge's Ranch Room has a rugged fireplace, old timey ranch furniture, dining tables and chairs, piano, toy box, books, games, puzzles and articles written on the history of the Doss Valley. The Lodge's Ranch Kitchen is complete in every way. Two gas ranges, triple sink, full size fridge, freezer, two coffee makers, micro, toaster, dishwasher, clothes washer/dryer, pots and pans, utensils, dishes, silverware, an abundance of counter space, a large prep table and plenty of elbow room makes the Ranch Kitchen a popular gathering place. The Main Lodge also has a grand porch to enjoy the sweeping views afforded all around. Two restrooms open onto the porch for your convenience.
The ranch complex offers guests a wonderful playground with horseshoes, swing with play tower, slide, basketball goal and Fort Sand Box. The Quiet Hill Pool is fashioned after an old limestone stock tank. The pool is round and is about 26' across and averages about 4' deep. There is a barn that houses a contented flock of chickens which our guests are invited to feed and to gather the eggs which are free for you to use. Behind the barn is the Wildlife Observatory. IT'S AWESOME!!! An 8' x 12' cedar pole observatory with a 6' x 7' glass viewing window and photography ports look onto an absolute spa for birds, deer, turkey and other wildlife. There are sixty acres for you to explore with walking paths and great mountain biking. The county roads just out our drive offer the finest cycling in Texas. Star gazing will dazzle you. The Hill is at 2100' elevation and has no light or air pollution to obstruct the heavens from exposing themselves. Rounding out the complex are picnic tables, a gas grill, charcoaler and campfire rings (which are great for roasting weenies and smores).
Relax in our Pool
Other amenities include catering and massage therapy. Golfing, rock climbing, fishing and bat caves are easily accessible from Quiet Hill Ranch.
As you can see, there is nothing lacking except you and your food. So bring the whole gang, your grub and a healthy appetite for wholesome fun and fellowship. Enjoy one of the best places you will ever find: Quiet Hill Ranch.
Dear Cindy, Jim, Naomi, and Holden,
Thank you. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your home with us. We've had many visits to The Hill now and they've all been fantastic, but this last visit one stands out. We had an incredible time and that is an understatement! It was so wonderful to see all of you and catch up on a year's time.
We thought you might enjoy having some of the many images collected during our stay. With so much beauty all around me, it was hard to put the camera down.
I think it is accurate to say throughout each busy hectic year, the group of us hold our summer stay with you as essential to reconnecting and relaxing. We look forward to the next visit starting the minute we drive away from the last.
We wish you the very best.
