WE HAVE THE ONLY RAPIDS ON THE BRAZOS RIVER. There are several sets of rapids to tube through and sit in as the water happily tumbles over stones all around you. It's like the Brazos version of Shangri-La (check out our video by clicking "video" at the top of the cover photo. The white powder islands of sand are perfect for exploring for critter tracks and building sand castles. TAKE $75 OFF FOR THIRD/MORE NIGHTS!!)
The many fun activities at the FF River Ranch make it an ideal spot for family gatherings or retreats with friends! Make sure to like us on FB and tag us in your photos!
Your house is a mile off the road and deep into the property; the nearest neighbor is over a mile away. The Brazos River flows through the property and is an easy 3 minute drive/15 minute walk from the house.
You’ll see deer, wild turkeys, birds of all kinds, and other wild things. After grilling your favorite dish, don’t miss the western sky as it comes alive with a million twinkling stars while the coyotes and owls serenade you.
Your house is a charming 50+ year old farm house (two bedrooms, two baths-- 8 beds) that we have updated—and continue to update. It has a wrap-around porch, with your grill and picnic table in the back yard--on the west side, the perfect place to take in the sunset in the big western sky.
With the queen sofa bed, there are 8 beds in the main house. The barn next door with its 3000 square foot second floor has been turned into an indoor/outdoor space and has sitting areas and rugs, and functions as a third bedroom with 4 glamping (ie very nice) roll-out beds for those who want to listen to the sounds of the night.
We have carved out miles of virgin hiking trails and easy walks; there are outdoor games like horse shoes; croquet; frisbees; a fire pit; porch sitting; bird watching; and three ponds for fishing. The ranch also has the only known Fairy Forest in the region!-- build a fairy house out of natural elements-- this keeps the fairies coming back!
The rapids are the perfect place to sit (chairs provided) with your favorite beverage; or fish (just below the rapids is a pretty good hole). Or kayaking, of course (four kayaks and several tubes are provided).
Also, bring your mountain bikes.
Go hunting for arrowheads and petrified wood. The Commanche were quite active up and down this part of the Brazos even when the earliest settlers arrived around 1850, and until the Commanches' eventual conquest by the Texas Rangers and their Colt pistols around 1870; we have found lots of flint and some arrowheads on high places here. Going further back in history, the Double F River Ranch has an abundance of petrified wood; they say that if you have fossilized sea shells you were under water, but if you have petrified wood you had land creatures. Hunting for petrified wood is a fun adventure here. (But leave them for the next person to discover!)
Weatherford is only 10 minutes away and Granbury is only 20 minutes away; both have great restaurants. And this close to Fort Worth, you could actually commute and have a ranch to come home to at night-- note the lower pricing mid-week!
We are 10 minutes from Weatherford and 20 minutes from Granbury-- both have great restaurant choices!
