Seven Beautiful Guest Homes & Cabins

Each more spectacular than the last. Combined with the barn, office, and pool house, there are a total of 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, 7 kitchens, and several garages that center around a green and gazebo. Equal parts private and sociable, they’re a short trip to the property’s common buildings amenities. On this ranch, guests get nothing less than the best.

Entertain in style

“They don’t make barns like this in Texas.”  

Those were the first words out of President George W. Bush’s mouth after stepping foot inside Shakespeare Ranch’s 5,111 square foot Entertainment Barn. Outfitted with a gourmet kitchen, wine room, and full saloon-style bar, the Barn’s been home to Shakespeare Ranch’s most prestigious events (think performances by Robin Williams and dinners by Emeril Lagasse). Sleepin’ in the barn never sounded so good.

The Great Indoors

Grand pool house with indoor pool and steam spa.

Believe it or not, there are times when America’s most beautiful lake just won’t do. That’s when you’ll find yourself withdrawing to the scenic solitude of Shakespeare Ranch’s grand pool house and spa. The pool house is loaded with an indoor pool and steam spa, fireside dining, an outdoor hot tub, a fully equipped gym, an art loft, an executive office suite, a staging kitchen for catering, and guest bathrooms. If the mountains are calling, let it go to voicemail.
