The Historic Lindsay Ranch, established in 1858, is located at 460 Lindsay Ranch Road, Mason, TX 76856, five miles north of Mason on US 87.
The Lindsay Ranch is the place to stay ... when you want to get away!
We have three guesthouses suitable for a couple or a crowd. Our guests can also hunt for topaz on the Lindsay Ranch.
The Cabin on Comanche Creek and Mason Mountain Manor are on the ranch.
These two houses and rock hunting are available February through September.
The Townhouse, in Mason, is available all year.
For more details and photos, scroll down to the bottom of the page and take a look.
We have a 2 night minimum.
RATES: $100.00 per night for 2 adults. Add $25.00 per night for each additional guest age 12 and over.
Rock hunting is limited to our guests. The cost is $15.00 per person age 12 and over.
How to decide which place is perfect for you?
If you do not want to be in the country, or if you have a large group, choose the Townhouse.
If you want to be in the country but close to town, stay at the Cabin on Comanche Creek.
If you really want to get away ... choose Mason Mountain Manor.
Please choose carefully. Not everyone enjoys ranch life, dirt roads and opening gates.
Most of the topaz found on the Lindsay Ranch has been found in or near Comanche Creek. You don't need elaborate tools. Gloves, a hand rake, comfortable clothing and a lot of luck is all you need.
Use the "Guesthouse Photos" link on the left to see where you will be staying. The Cabin on Comanche Creek is red. The Townhouse is blue, and Mason Mountain Manor is the rustic retreat.

Mason Mountain Manor
This rustic retreat is available February - September.
It is 2 1/2 miles from the highway in the middle of our 700-acre back pasture.
You will be driving on a dirt road. When we have rain, it may be muddy.
There are two gates that have to be opened and closed.
A vehicle that is higher off the ground than a regular car is recommended especially if you want to explore all of the ranch.
The Manor has two bedrooms and six beds including bunk beds and a day bed in the living area.
The large porch provides a wonderful view plus a comfortable, relaxing "outside" living area.
Hike, explore or just listen to the birds and look at the stars.
Many guests bring bird seed or corn to scatter on the road in front of the Manor.
Then they sit back and enjoy watching what comes up for free snack.
Once you get to the Manor, you won't want to leave.
To see what guests said about their stay, go to the Mason Mountain Manor Guestbook.
The Cabin on Comanche Creek
is available February - September.
It has 2 bedrooms, 6 beds, a covered porch and a 300 sq ft cement deck.
It is close to the highway with plenty of parking.
The Cabin on Comanche Creek Guestbook is on the left. Read what guests had to say about their stay.
This wooden deck has been replaced by a larger cement deck.
If I don't have any openings, I recommend Earlene Bode's Kozy Kottage. It has one large room with a queen bed and queen sleeper sofa and is clean and comfortable. Earlene's number is 325-347-2968.
If you just want to come to Mason and rock hunt for the day, call the Bar M Ranch 325-265-4223(H) or 830-203-1611 (Cell) or the Seaquist Ranch 325-347-5413.
