Located between Johnson City and Blanco, just 40 miles from Austin, the Rockin’ L Ranch is perfectly situated in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. The explosion of tourism growth, thanks to the booming Texas wine and tourism industry, creates a golden opportunity for a wide variety of business ventures. This picturesque Texas Ranch for Sale consists of 179 acres of gorgeous rolling hills, wooded areas and open fields with native Texas trees and an abundance of wildlife. The property features a ranch home, two guest houses and several outbuildings just waiting for your creativity and entrepreneurial spirit to take them to new heights.

With no shortage of things to do in the area, Rockin’ L Ranch would be the perfect opportunity to capitalize on the growing tourism in Central Texas. Surprisingly there are very few lodging options that exist in this area, limited to a handful of B&B’s and one Best Western motel in Johnson City. Lodging is in great demand and growing all over Central Texas, especially unique lodging like cabins, yurts, cabin tents, etc. Glamorous camping or “Glamping” is very popular in Central Texas because guests can enjoy the rugged outdoors and beauty of the Hill Country, yet still have a hotel spa experience. Creating lodging with a communal atmosphere where wine tour groups could all come together after a fun day of wine tasting, is much needed in this area.

Texas Wine Property for Sale


Imagine a retreat where guests can go out during the day and experience all that the local area has to offer and then come back to your vacation getaway retreat, relax by the pool or unwind on the large deck to enjoy the wine they discovered during the day. By the way, good restaurants are also lacking in this area, so lodging that includes some home cooked BBQ would be a welcomed addition for guests.

You could quickly start your dream business here and also get to live on one of the most beautiful ranches in Texas. Given the close proximity to Austin and the Texas Wine Country, this ranch would also make an excellent wedding venue, corporate retreat, yoga retreat and spa, or a Dude Ranch. The recreational opportunities on the ranch would be endless for guests to enjoy riding horses or ATV’s on the property or just taking a scenic hike.

Hard work and forward thinking management has kept this ranch’s native Texas plant life intact, without letting the more invasive examples (such as cedar) take over. Because of this, the ranch is a certified Monarch Butterfly way station. The butterflies stop on both legs of their migration into Mexico to feed and lay eggs. During the spring, sprawls of bluebonnets are all over the ranch. Although much effort has been put into the native plant life, this is not a nature preserve, it is a working ranch. Cattle, goats, horses and even a few Llama call the Rockin’ L home. Most of this livestock can convey, and will keep the agriculture exemption in place. The phrase “turn key ranch” gets thrown around a lot, but that is exactly what this place is. A beautiful ranch, in a great location of a quickly growing region, the equipment to maintain it, and all the tax benefits of an agriculture operation.
