Mason Mountain Manor is available February - September. It is in the middle of our 700-acre back pasture, 2 1/2 miles from the highway.
A pickup, or similar vehicle, is a good choice for driving to the Manor. There are two gates to open and close.
This rustic guesthouse has two bedrooms, five beds plus a futon in the living area and can accommodate 7 or 8 people.
The large porch is a great "outside" living area.
Hike, explore or relax on the porch while you listen to the birds or look at the stars.
Guests comments about the Cabin:
I have had a great time here on your place. I loved it all but my favorite part was rock hunting. We found many incredible rocks. We loved the hammock and tire swing. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.

This was a great change of pace from "big city" living. The Banana Bread was awesome!
I have to tell you, your raisin bran bread was to die for!!! Is there any way you would part with your recipe? I would love to surprise my husband with a loaf!
Thanks again for such an enjoyable environment in which to stay.
We wanted to do something "different" for our 25th wedding anniversary. My hubby found you online and here we stayed ... even an extra day. Finding an arrowhead, mica, quartz galore and seeing the beautiful night - stars all around, made it all worth while.
We really enjoyed our stay. The Cabin was great. The peacefulness, wildflowers, wildlife & stars were all magnificent! Especially enjoyed the rock hunting. You have a rock hound's paradise.
Wow! What a great time we had at Lindsay Ranch! Us being city slickers, it gave us an appreciation for the great outdoors and for hardworking ranchers like you, Dee and Clay....my gandson will remember looking for rocks for many years to come!
Your place is filled with beauty and peace. We had a great time here and it will be among our favorite memories.
I would just like to say thank you for the Cabin. It was very welcoming!! thank you for the stories about the rocks that you found. I enjoyed the stay here. I hope we will be able to come back again.
Guests comments about the Manor:
This is our 8th year to visit Mason and our first time as your guests. Your hospitality is wonderful and we love all the small touches that make this feel like "home".
The mountain home is our favorite - we can't wait to come back! Thanks for everysthing!!

We wanted to thank you both so much for the wonderful time we had at the ranch.
The Manor was wonderful!! It was perfectly cozy and stocked with everything we could possibly need, we really appreciated that.
We can't wait to come back to hunt for topaz; the banana bread alone is worth the trip!
We enjoyed the relaxation of the Manor and the front porch. God sure does show himself when you look down from the top of the Mountain. It's easy to sit on the porch and pray. Banana Bread was wonderful.
What a beautiful place you have! I couldn't believe we were just two hours from home, yet in a different world. It won't be the last time
I come to stay at the Mason Mountain Manor.
My grandson loved all the open area to dig in the dirt, he even found three tiny Texas Topaz -
thanks to the rock lesson we received when we arrived. The Raisin Bran Bread was delicious!
This was a terrific experience. The tension just fell off my shoulders.
We came to Mason Mountain Manor to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. We hiked and I saw many different species of birds. What a great birding spot! We sat out under the stars with a fire at night.
Now that is romance!
100 THUMBS UP!
The Townhouse is in Mason, not on the ranch. It is available year-round.
During the horse and buggy days, ranchers often had a house in town where they stayed while they conducted their business or attended worship services. They were sometimes called "Sunday Houses".
This three bedroom house is 3 1/2 blocks from the square and has seven beds. It is a good place for up to 8 people.

Had a wonderful time! Hope to come back soon!

Mason is a beautiful town. It has a proper town center with everything a person could need; restaurants, a movie theatre, a jewelry store, antique stores, a florist - just to name a few.
The view from the Fort is something everyone should see. Mason is a slice of history and heaven.
Thank you for the great stay. We'll be back.
The Hendersons, Westport, CT.
The Townhouse was wonderfully relaxing and it seemed as if you thought of everything.
The Banana Bread was delicious. We had to leave what was left since we must have gained weight since we've been here!
What a nice change from the motel we normally stay in during our family reunion. It seemed as tho we never left home!
Thank you for the great time we've had here in Texas. Clay is the first real cowboy I've ever met.
We really enjoyed seeing the ranch, too.
