Our cozy and comfy guest cottage is nestled in the giant live oak and cedar elm on a quiet and private horse ranch northwest of Austin, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This getaway offer an opportunity to escape the city and enjoy the park-like setting, sounds of songbirds, and friendly chickens, only minutes from restaurants and shopping!

Our nicely appointed cottage welcomes its visitors to a good nights sleep in a comfortable King sized bed and a warm cup of coffee or tea on the deck.

The space
Our cottage is nestled under giant oak and cedar elm trees, on a peaceful and private horse ranch, just north of Austin. It is unbelievably quiet, with no road noise at all...only the sounds of song birds, horses whinnying in the distance, crickets, and occasional coyote and the wind in the leaves. The cottage itself is well insulated, with rustic decor, a comfortable king size bed with high thread count sheets, fluffy towels for after-showering, a desk for work with WI-fi, a small kitchenette including a crock pot, electric skillet, coffee maker, tea pot, glassware, silverware and plates, plus a lovely deck to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings, plus a picnic table available for meals with friends.

Guest access
You will have access to the cottage, as well as the walking trails and the labyrinth. Our horses are all very friendly, and no horse experience is expected or required. No matter what your stage of life, you will enjoy this amazingly beautiful and much-loved piece of heaven.

We also offer equine experiences, whereupon you are able to interact one-on-one with horses on the ground. Our notebook inside the cottage has more information and photos! South Wind Equestrian Center in Leander, Texas. To book a horse encounter the owner will need 2 weeks notice.

Other things to note
We provide coffee, tea, protein bars and light breakfast items. Restaurants are 10-20 minutes away

Leander, Texas, United States

We live west of Leander, Texas on a quiet cul-de-sac in a neighborhood with 5+acre ranches so the homes are well-kept and the neighbors are friendly. We are minutes from shopping, restaurants and entertainment options. We are also only 10 minutes from Lake Travis access down the road in Jonestown. Our neighborhood is a quiet and beautiful oasis.

I purchased Ponderosita Ranch in 1999. I am thrilled to share its amazing peace, quiet, privacy and sanctuary-like atmosphere with others. I love being a mom to my two children, managing this ranch, working in therapy teams to bring healing and hope to others, hiking in the mountains of Colorado, fly fishing, reading and enjoying good food and live music! I am a certified equine professional, specializing in relationship work with horses and humans, focusing on bringing attunement both to self and to others through allowing the horses to teach and guide us through re-connecting with personal power and instinct. Horses teach us so much about relationships, leadership, staying present in conflict, healthy boundaries, paying attention to non-verbal cues, tuning into whether we are present, how to control our emotions and not let them control us, learning that our emotions can be a state and not become a trait and how to value each member of the herd for their invaluable role. I love teaching people about horses and love seeing how they transform lives! To add an equine experience to your reservation just message me two weeks out to make a reservation. The discounted rate for my guests is $50 per person for an hour. I do not take guests on trail rides, just as a heads up to manage expectations. I can't wait for you to experience the quiet and beauty that surround you.
