We're on the flyway for many migrating bird species from sandhill crane to wood stork, bunting, groove billed ani, etc. etc.

We live on the property about 1/4 mile away, and invite guests to participate in some of our day to day chores, including calling in the cattle. We respect privacy, however, and want our guests to feel like they're alone in their country home if they prefer that.

Goliad is 22 miles away, and is a must-see beautiful historic Texas town. Its courthouse square is full of great shops and locally-owned restaurants. Don't miss the Goliad State Park and its Mission Espiritu Santo, and the Presidio la Bahia. Rent a kayak and paddle the peaceful San Antonio River.
We want our guests to feel like they're at home here.

We are a family owned and operated ranch, and my husband Wilfred Korth and I live "just around the bend" from this guest house compound. This concept of sharing the ranch with guests is a fairly new one in Texas, and we're finding it's a wonderful way to meet new and interesting people. It's also a great way to diversify income stream, because if you don't have an oil well in Texas (and we don't), it's not always easy to keep your land. Ours is a special place: we manage the ranch for wildlife, while also running a small herd of cattle and mediterranean miniature donkeys! The donkeys are gentle animals, and our guests love them most of all. On arrival to the ranch we like to give guests a quick overview of their home and a map of the ranch property. We want you to feel comfortable here, so are happy to take you on a tour of the property, then set you free to enjoy the place as if it were your own. Guests are always welcome to interact and participate in the ranch activities - help us call in the cows, brush and feed donkeys, whatever makes you happy!
