Great place and we will definitely be back! We had the chefs take care of all of our meals and it definitely was a good call!
I had the joy of attending a celebration honoring Erie Smith May 6. Your hilltop ranch was charming, with breathing-taking hill country views, and the food was yummy. We had a ball. In advertently I left several items upon departing. Once home I realized I'd left something valuable. Contacting the manager, Ruth, was easy and she acted promptly. My items were mailed immediately and returned in excellent condition. This response was consistent with the prompt, caring, courteous, and personal attention shown each guest at the event. Thank you PermaVista for the memorable event.
We rented PermaVista to host a Retirement and Birthday Celebration for about 60 guests for one of our Posh & Private Event Design clients. The entire staff was very responsive and quite flexible to our needs in the weeks and days leading up to the event, which, as an event planner is something that is priceless to me. The event was held outside on the croquet court – which was the perfect picturesque backdrop for the celebration. The owner, Robert, even stayed on-site to ensure the event went off without a hitch, and most importantly… the food was AMAZING!
Beautiful ranch with excellent food, stunning views and wonderful hosts. They were incredibly patient with us and our constant back-and-forth as we tried to work out logistics on our end. Would love to stay there again, and would say it was for sure 10 stars out of 5!
Beautiful home and property. Horse trainer Shannon, was incredibly sweet, and certainly experienced in the training and handling of the horses. Loved riding the horses around the property and neighboring properties. Axe was a sweetheart and easy to handle, coming from an inexperienced rider. For being the quiet one, he kept trying to be the leader! ???? Ranch and kitchen staff were wonderful! They were so accommodating, and super friendly! Breakfast and dinner served was delicious. Overall experience was great! I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. Just a few observations/recommendations - a shower would have been nice in the bedroom that only had the tub.

Spectacular memorable ladies’ trip! This was a great, fun, relaxing place for a ladies shopping excursion and retreat. 13 of us had a blast in the game room til all hours, and then woke to the most delicious breakfast.....bacon being cooked, tables set up out by the pool, pancakes, huevos rancheros, oj, coffee....being waited upon by 4 servers and a great chef. Also, we hired the chef for a delicious mexican- inspired gourmet dinner. Everything we asked Ruth, the concierge, to do for us was done with a smile. The only thing you have to be aware of is the fact that all the ranches out there are on a septic tank system, so water pressure is very low. Some showers were a trickle. But there were lots of clean beds and wonderful spaces to gather in. We will definitely go again! We didn't take advantage of the horseback riding or tennis, but next time for that, too. ) Also, the drive through hill country is beautiful.
We had a big group wanted to have a relaxing getaway during the first weekend of Spring Break. Once we found this ranch in Airbnb, we knew that we have found the one we were looking for. The promptness and professionalism of the host and the owner, with some personal touch made it easy for us to book it for our getaway. Our entire team was delighted with the warm reception we received when we arrived at the ranch. The ranch itself was great and definitely exceeded our expectations. Even though the weather could be better than what we had, but that didn't prevent us to have fun in the swimming pool/spa, in the game room, in the horse-riding, in the basketball court, or just being in the seating areas. They even offered us an extra room in addition to some extra air-mattresses to accommodate all of us, and they didn't charge anything extra for that. The welcoming fruit basket was also a pleasant surprise. The service of the entire crew was simply top-notch, starting with the owner, the host Ruth, the care-taker Julian, and the horse-trainer - all were super nice. Thank you PermaVista Ranch for giving us a memorable weekend. We all are planning to come back here in future.
The weekend my family and I spent at your ranch was one of the best I can ever remember as a group. When we drove up to the property everyone had the Wow Factor on their face. It was one of those moments we knew we would be back and we had not even walked into the front door. The beds were comfy, and the ranch design just perfect. The $1 million dollar game room looks like a million! The horses, the food, the staff all definitely 5 star! “Piece of Heaven!!! Great, great, great!! Go!!
My wife and I were married at the PermaVista Ranch in the spring of 2013 and it couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. We hosted around 130 guests who flew in everywhere from California to New York to celebrate with us. They were all greatly impressed by the landscape, views, buildings, amenities (the pool, tennis court, and horse riding program), and especially the excellent food and service provided by the PermaVista staff at our rehearsal dinner. The main house and front courtyard are ideally suited to hold rehearsal dinners, weddings, and receptions and easily accommodated our group.
Before booking the PermaVista Ranch, my wife and I looked all over Houston for alternate wedding venues, but agreed this was the best - truly a unique and special place. I couldn’t recommend this more highly – plus it was the best wedding I’ve ever been to
I have been a guest at PermaVista Ranch many times. The landscape is gorgeous; rolling hills of horse pasture, wooded glades, and a sleepy pond near the horse barn. In the spring, the fields boom with the blue-purple Bluebonnets and the yellows and pinks of Indian Paint Brush. The accommodations range from nice and comfortable and homey to spectacular (the newest wing), and they are everywhere attended by beautiful landscaping, from fruit tree-lined gravel roads, to roaming Bougainvillea, to Hibiscus exclamation points, to colorful plantings along the walkways. Sitting by the pool in the late afternoons and evenings and early mornings brings deep tranquility, looking out over the large expanse of fields and sky, with an occasional distant rumble of a passing train. PermaVista Ranch has a tower from which the views are even more commanding. There is a powerful telescope in the living room which provides astonishing views of the heavens at night because there is no light pollution in PermaVista's night sky. The experience is complete with three deliciously interesting meals per day prepared by a chef, always fresh, from scratch, using ingredients from PermaVista's vegetable and pepper garden ~ PermaVista even makes its own hot pepper garnish, called "gunpowder", which is not too hot and which has a complex and interesting flavor from the several different pepper varieties used to make it. PermaVista Ranch is truly a hidden gem to be appreciated by the most discriminating travelers. I whole-heartedly and un-reservedly recommend it. Enjoy!
PermaVista was an amazing place to hold my daughter’s bat mitzvah celebration. The natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country never disappoints. And the folks who work at the ranch all went the extra mile to ensure that each detail was properly executed, from following recipes, to decorative arrangement of platters, to replenishing the buffet. We had a total of 140 adults and children who all raved about the spacious and beautiful facilities, both indoors and outdoors. While we had to go home when the party was over, we were offered our choice of the many beautiful bedrooms that could have accommodated at least 20 of us. Everything was top notch!
