When comparing venues, Carriage Hills Ranch is truly an authentic Texas Hill Country venue. Preserving Texas history with our family barn, that is over one hundred years old, we used it as the cornerstone to build our reception hall. We added to the natural beauty of the land by creating a gazebo overlooking our wet-weather lake, along with numerous other stunning features on the property.
Centrally located between Austin and San Antonio, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, we offer the charm and hospitality you would expect to receive in Texas. We are blessed with beautiful scenery, located near wineries, distilleries, and museums, we’re one of the most affordable and unique venues in the Texas Hill Country.
This means with a smaller budget (making great use of our decorations and beautiful outdoor areas), or a larger budget (designer gowns, specialty cakes, and helicopter rides), Carriage Hills Ranch, may be the ideal venue for your special day.
Additionally, at Carriage Hills Ranch we offer hundreds of decor items in stock for use at no additional fee.
