Comanche Caves Ranch Amenities
The most beloved asset in this part of Texas is the Guadalupe River, affectionately known as the “Guad”. The owner of Hope Cottage has use of a very private 10 +/- acre gated park that lies on the Guadalupe River with accessible frontage and ownership on both sides of the river (nearly 2,300’ total). The park has locked access for owners and guests only with storage, barbecue and picnic areas and a bathroom. This is a perfect place to kayak, swim, host a party or just relax.
Located within Comanche Caves Ranch and adjacent to the property is a 3,000’ paved landing strip which is shared by the 17 ranch owners. The landing strip will serve private planes such as King Air, Pilate or smaller aircraft. There is also a beautifully landscaped and gated area that is home to a few small cottages that are used by the Comanche Caves homeowners for weekend guests and overflow. Comanche Cave Ranch’s main roads are paved and offer endless opportunities for bicycling, running or simply strolling. With the very limited number of ownerships within Comanche Caves, opportunities for long-lasting friendships are sure to develop. Common sense restrictions are in place protecting values for the owners for the long term. This part of the Guadalupe is absolutely stunning and rare. Along with the river, local attractions include the famous Hunt Store, Crider’s rodeo, Camp LaJunta, Camp Waldemar and Camp Mystic.
