A Rustic Family Escape between Houston and Austin, Texas
Welcome to Savage Ranch Texas! We offer a family-friendly and fully furnished vacation rental home that sits on a beautiful 39-acre ranch. Hosted by Valerie and Ryan Savage, this picturesque property near Smithville and Giddings, Texas with easy access from either Hwy 71 or Hwy 290 is spacious enough for 18 people of all ages. We specialize in making the “little ones” welcome with a pack-n-play crib and booster/high chairs.
Besides lounging around the back patio pool, hot tub, gas grill, smoker, and fire pit, guests can enjoy many outdoor activities: fishing, orienteering the wooded trails, playing corn hole or horseshoes, and frolicking in the wooded kids’ area with a play fort, sand pit, ninja line and kid's zip line. Visit our horses, barn cats, and chickens and ducks. (We share their eggs with you!) Enjoy seasonal favorites from our vegetable garden or berry patch. (We share those, too!)
For wine lovers, our newest addition is a one-acre vineyard! Visit our Amenities page for details.
Whether you are planning a family celebration, summer weekend getaway, or a fun weekend with friends, there’s no better place to relax and enjoy getting back to nature than at Savage Ranch Texas!
“Our family, consisting of eight adults and eight grandchildren, enjoyed a weekend together and we had a blast! The grandchildren enjoyed fishing, catching grasshoppers for fishing, the tree house, the zip line, the well-stocked game room, and of course the swimming pool! Thank you, Valerie and Ryan, for the delicious homemade jelly we enjoyed one morning and the farm-fresh eggs! We look forward to seeing you again.”

“Easter weekend where numerous memories were made. I have five grandsons ranging from 17 months to 14 years old and they were all self-entertained. There was so much to do and enjoy as a family!”

“Our group of eight adults and eight kids came from far and wide for an overdue reunion. We could not have been more pleased with the location, the amenities of Savage Ranch, and the hospitality exhibited by our hosts. The home is stocked with absolutely everything needed for cooking for large groups, both inside and outside. We appreciated the hospitality and advise everyone to come and see how to do things the Texas way in Giddings!”

“Great stay in a most relaxing, spacious home! Gorgeous view of horses and the owl perched above the beautiful fishing pond. Thank you, Valerie and Ryan, for a wonderful holiday getaway with our family. Such gracious hosts!”

“My party of eight adults and eight small children was blown away by all that Valerie and Ryan had to offer during our all-too-brief stay at Savage Ranch. Their place is perfect for family get-togethers like ours. She has everything one could ask for to make an incredibly memorable visit. Privacy, pond, pool, spa, barnyard animals, running space, kids’ zip line, playhouse, toys inside and out, you name it! Their hospitality was boundless. We'll be ever grateful!”

“We really loved staying at the Savage Ranch! We came as a group of 12 ladies to enjoy the Round Top Antique Show. There was more than enough room for us. We could have had four more people and still had beds for everyone. We also had fresh farm eggs and fresh strawberries provided by Valerie Savage. It was a great experience and we’d definitely come back!”
