Erbstuck, German for "heirloom", is the perfect
description for this ranch. It is one of the very few historical properties in Gillespie County still owned by the founding family.
We continue the tradition of raising fine animals and inviting family, friends and guests to gather together
and enjoy the best the Texas Hill Country has to offer!
Our guest house
provides accommodations for our bed and breakfast
guests. Begun prior to 1850, the
house originally had one room. Through the years it has grown to over
1200 square feet - quite large for a house of that
vintage. Most of its original construction features
have been retained for all to appreciate and enjoy.
Our “New” house was constructed in 1900. This beautiful
Victorian was the Welge’s pride and joy. Closets,
beautiful hardware, and an unusual floor plan make
this house unique. Still sporting most of its
original construction and interior amenities, it is
hard to believe that it was built without
Our barn surrounds the first structure built by Conrad and Henry Welge.
When you step inside, you will find a well preserved log dog trot cabin.
