About Phil Chavanne
My name is Phil Chavanne and I am a property manager for the Lone Star River Ranch. My staff and I manage 5 ranches in central Texas offering large venues for family reunions, vacations, corporate events, and weddings.
Phil Chavanne purchased this Estate in 2017
Why Phil Chavanne chose McCulloch County
One of the great opportunities that this ranch provides is the chance to roam and explore at your leisure. With over 20 miles of smooth roads our guests have the chance to relax and discover the unfolding landscape with any high clearance vehicle. The ranch also provides a 5 acre pond stocked with Florida Bass, and several others as well.
What makes this Estate unique
There are countless unique aspects to this property but the one that stands out the most is the incredible river access. There are 5 miles of navigable river on the northern and eastern borders of the ranch which allow for groups to canoe or kayak for hours.

Like the Good ole days
It was a great reunion at the Lone Star River Ranch. Phil was easy to get ahold of when we needed something. We were there for 2 days and didn’t see half the place. What we did see we loved. Coyotes running and turtles on the riverbank and lots of trails to explore. At one point our group got out of the truck and just walked across a field for an hour for no reason at all. I love places like this.
Annie, it was kind of you to write a review. I'm glad the weather treated you well and that you were all able to make the dates work. Sounds like you saw a lot while you were here. Thanks again!
Great place. Just as advertised. During the day everyone scattered across the ranch to walk around or go fishing and then we met back at mealtimes. Two guys found arrowheads on the river. Lots to do. No complaints.
We appreciate your review! Glad you got to explore the great outdoors. We're excited to have you again next year.
Even better than expected
My family and I were very impressed with this property. More than we expected to be. The lodge is absolutely huge. And right down to the silverware everything was first class. (Something you can’t tell by the pictures). Half the meals were catered and the other half we cooked ourselves. Phil set up the catering for us and we were very pleased with how prompt it was and the food was great. The kitchen is hard to beat. There is no possibility of being interrupted by neighbors and you can stay up late and be as loud as you like. Off of the porch there is this big sprawling view of the Colorado River and there were deer and more turkey than Ive seen before. Most VRBO houses are just places you stay while you go on vacation - but this place is the vacation. Satisfied customer.
It was great working with you guys again this year. Thank you for all of the positive feedback that you gave us before, during and after your stay. It's more helpful than you know. Blessings to your family in the New Year.
Get ready to explore! What a beautiful ranch!
We contacted the manager in November hoping to stay at one of the other ranches in his network but all of them were already booked. So he introduced us to this new property that had just been listed. So glad he did. This is our third time to stay at one of the Tenpenny properties. (We’ve actually stayed at a new ranch every year). They all have maps so that you can drive and explore the land and see the sights. We drove round and round the ranch as a family. We always go camping at state parks and one of our kids said, “This is like our very own state park.” Another one said, “More like a a national park.” Yeah its a huge place. The roads are good enough for any car. IMHO ranches are the best places to host a family reunion and this place is one of the best.
As always it was great having you. Glad you were pleased with the new property. Excited to have you back.
Wonderful escape from reality!
The parents loved it. The kids begged us not to leave. When 2 of my nieces started tugging my skirt and crying I made them ride home in a different car. This was a great place. An escape from reality!!!
Thanks for the great feedback. It was wonderful having your group. Glad the kids enjoyed themselves so much.
