Which place is perfect for you?
If you want to be closer 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 on the roads and in/or near Comanche Creek.
We have shovels and screens for you to use. Bring gloves, comfortable clothing and perhaps a hand rake if you wish.
That plus a lot of luck is all you need.

Mason Mountain Manor
This rustic retreat 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. Sometimes 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 if you want to explore all of the ranch.
The Manor has two bedrooms and six beds. There are bunk beds and a day bed in the living area.
The large porch provides a wonderful view plus a relaxing "outside" living area.
There is a fire pit, a wood/charcoal grill and a gas grill.
You can hike and explore or just listen to the birds and look at the stars.
Many guests bring bird seed or corn.
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.
The Cabin on Comanche Creek
Has 2 bedrooms, 6 beds, a covered porch and a large deck.
It is close to the highway with plenty of parking.
