As the nation's 11th longest river meanders from New Mexico to the Gulf Coast, it passes one of the most spectacular trophy ranches in Central Texas.
Only 90 minutes from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the Austin area, the Moon River Ranch – on a bend in the Brazos River – has played host to numerous weddings, corporate retreats and family reunions in recent years.
Made up of two main parcels, of 541 acres and 409 acres that may be sold separately, the ranch's northern acreage is home to the main lodge and headquarters and serves as the wedding venue and corporate retreat. The southern portion is geared for agriculture.
Its headquarters includes a custom-built main lodge and several other homes for guests, family or staff. Moon River's rustic lodges can accommodate an overnight group of 90 guests and more than twice that for a day event. There are also workshops and barns.
In Falls County, just 15 minutes east of Interstate 35 and Baylor University stadium, the ranch, which could be a grand personal residence and income-producing venture, is being offered by Harlan Ray and David Burgher for $7,900,000. International real estate advisor Bernard Uechtritz, also of the Briggs Freeman Ranch Division, is the court-appointed receiver handling the management and sale of the assets.
For romance, the Moon River Ranch is hard to beat. With exceptional views, cascading waterfalls and shimmering pools, it is the perfect ambiance for weddings. Ceremonies are held at the ranch's charming chapel followed by receptions in the Texas-style dance hall.
Moon River Ranch is also perfect site for corporate retreat and team-building events and has hosted some of America's top companies and groups.
Guests can enjoy horseback rides through the pastures with friends or family, shoot skeet and paddle a canoe down the pristine river.
