Welcome to Indian Blanket Ranch, a Secluded 250-acre Nature Reserve

A Nature Reserve is a special place left largely undisturbed where visitors can have the pleasure of being surrounded by nature to experience animals, native plants and ecosystems.

This land has been in our family since our grandparents Bob and Annie Auld Davis purchased it in 1916. In 1982 our parents Roger and Lora B. Davis Garrison opened their ranch and home for visitors to come birding in the Hill Country and stay in their Bluebird Hill Bed & Breakfast. In 1985 they added the Hideaway cabin for couples and families to escape city life and connect with nature.

Still a family-owned business, we enjoy sharing our piece of paradise with others! We offer several miles of nature bluebird trails for birding, wildlife viewing, nature photography, hiking, jogging, riding Mountain bikes and exploring!

Indian Blanket Ranch is a Beautiful Corporate Retreat, Family Reunion & Ranch Wedding Destination.
Nestled between Hills away from city lights makes this your perfect Dark Sky area for Star Gazing; Rated Bortle 3.
