Why April Okerholm chose Fredericksburg
Legacy Ranch was a dream come true and is an incredibly special place for our family and friends. Fredericksburg has been a sweet spot in our hearts for years and we wanted to merge the beauty of the Texas hill country with the story of some of our family members and honor those who have had a big impact on the world.

Ideal Hill Country Getaway!
Our extended family had a wonderful time at the Legacy Ranch. The homes were comfortable and well appointed. Everyone raved about how comfortable the beds are! April was responsive and communicated all through our planning and our stay. I would highly recommend the Legacy Ranch for family and or group retreats.
A quiet, clean place
Lovely, well-maintained home that is tastefully decorated and comfortable. One can imagine seeing this home on HGTV as a perfected "after". Lots of space for a family with numerous twin beds, which are mostly upstairs. As it should be, the kitchen serves as the heart of this home with a nice table for gathering for games, talk, and of course, dining. The living room has a club-feel to it with overstuffed seating, and lots of it. Though we were there on a cold, wet weekend, the outside space is very nice with a patio, firepit, and grill. Very handy space for enjoying an evening outdoors. Excellent experience. I have no complaints!
The only unexpected, though not necessarily negative things were (1) it's remote, so there is no TV service, satellite or otherwise and (2) the upstairs access is via an external staircase. For some, the lack of TV is a huge plus as if facilitates family time. For our guys' "bike ride weekend" during the Masters, it necessitated a trip to town to catch golf at a local watering hole, which is only 10 minutes away. The TV craving is probably unique to us, but just be aware. As to the external access, that was absolutely fine for us, though I can see how families with younger kids would be a little unsettled by their kids being outside of earshot - but that could be awesome as well!
Thank you for a memorable weekend. The facilities are excellent!
My parents, brother, sister husband and I found Legacy Ranch to be the perfect retreat for us. We relaxed together and chatted over coffee while enjoying the beautiful setting and each other. All was comfortable, cozy and well-appointed.
It was so great to meet and host you all! We look forward to seeing you again!
The house is beautifully put together and such a relaxing place to stay. It was the perfect spot to come and celebrate my sister’s 40th with a group of friends. We loved it!
Thank you, Lauren! We look forward to hosting you again!
A one of kind find and experience. My entire family loved our stay at Legacy Ranch
My family of 9 (6 adults, 3 kids 7 and 4 yrs.) recently stayed at the Sieben Salthaus for the New Year's holiday and had an amazing stay. The entire property is wonderful and the house itself was beautiful, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing your own meals at home. The bedrooms and baths are also well equipped with quality linens. For being in a secluded property, it's location is conveniently less than 10 min. from Fredericksburg. We had shops, restaurants, and HEB not too far from the rental. We even drove 20 min, to Llano to eat Barbecue at the famous Cooper's. On the way back we enjoyed an impressive sunset as we drove pass Enchanted Rock national park.
We had the opportunity to meet April and Eric who are very gracious hosts. They gave us a tour of the other 2 homes in the property which we also fell in love with and hope to have the opportunity to stay in sometime soon. April's interior decorating skills and taste are impeccable. All homes have a rustic charm yet all highly "sophisticated" as well as with all of the basic commodities. The only negative is the poor cell phone reception which is beyond the owners' control. Also, we couldn't utilize all the single beds for our children as we had hoped for, as they are too small and a bit high for our young kids whom we know would have fallen at night. We still made it work as there were plenty larger beds also in the 2nd floor.
For new year's eve, Eric the owner helped us turn on the small fire-pit in the back patio for our kids to enjoy s'mores as we rang in the New Year. The stars couldn't have shined more brightly that night, it was quite a priceless experience. Overall we truly enjoyed our short Fredericksburg vacation, and Legacy Ranch was the perfect place for creating family memories. We're definitely already spreading the voice and hope to return in the spring to enjoy the blue bonnets. Thank you April and Eric for the opportunity. You guys have done an amazing job.
