RETREAT, RELAX, RENEW
The 3,000 square foot clubhouse, constructed by Fredericksburg homebuilder Tony Martin, features a traditional Texas Hill Country style with deep covered porches and breezeways. Available for use to ranch owners, the 14-foot ceilings, antique timber beams and long leaf pine floors make this gathering space warm and inviting. With a fully equipped kitchen, large outdoor patio, fireplace, swimming pools and BBQ area, the locale is wonderful for family gatherings, small business meetings and birthday parties.
Our onsite concierge service is available to anticipate your every need and ensure that each visit to the ranch is comfortable and easy. It’s our goal to help you take advantage of all that the Texas Hill Country has to offer, whether it’s a sunset trail ride, fishing in the stocked bass ponds or time spent exploring the ranch. As an owner, The Preserve staff arranges for your home to be stocked with ranch essentials, vehicles fueled and home cleaned after your stay. Concierge staff works with each owner to tailor a program of services that meet your family needs. And all the amenities from town are just a phone call away.
The centrally located equestrian center includes a covered 3,600 square foot barn, and outdoor arena. Our herd of friendly ranch horses is available for owners use anytime through the concierge service. Guided trail rides are available by the light of day or by the full moon light.
The barn houses ten, 12x12 foot stalls with automatic waterers, tack room, hot and cold wash rack and changing room. The rubber floor matting through the center of the barn provides a silent and durable surface for horse’s passage.
Ranch owners may board their horse year-round at the equestrian center. Knowledgeable, onsite staff provides daily care and services such as grooming and training.
Do you enjoy horseback riding without the full-time ownership? Ask about The Preserve’s "rent-a-ranch-horse" program. Owners can schedule a trail ride with the Concierge and arrive to the barn with horses saddled and prepared for a ride around the ranch.

Rod & Gun
The Preserve at Walnut Springs balances preservation with enrichment of habitat through thoughtful planning of a limited number of homesteads. More than a decade ago, The Preserve set in place a Wildlife Management Plan that nurtures the land, provides for a healthy herd of Texas longhorn cattle, and monitors and manages native species populations.
Owners are invited to join in annual activities such as census counts and guided hunts. Tax savings may be passed down to each individual owner participating in the wildlife management plan in accordance with the overall plan approved by the Texas Parks & Wildlife and Blanco County.
Trophy bass fishing is available on stocked ponds throughout the ranch. A short drive on the trails will access any of the six ponds located throughout this Johnson City property. Equipment, rod, reels and bait are also available onsite, and a fishing trip can be booked through the Concierge service for beginner anglers. Ranch Management works with professional fisheries to ensure the highest quality fish populations.
The Preserve at Walnut Springs offers much more than just Texas Hill Country properties. A carefully constructed network of pedestrian and horse trails meander through pasture lands, canyons and grasslands for you, your family and guests to enjoy. More than 20 miles of trails offer the hiker, biker or horseback rider hours of solitude and beauty conveniently located right outside your backyard.
Both improved and natural trails exist, catering to the afternoon stroller along the creek to the adventurous mountain biker seeking a longer outing to the south canyons. Whatever means of exploration you choose, the trail system is designed to provide ample opportunities for discovery and enjoyment.
