Thanks for such a wonderful time at Shade Ranch Casa Grande. We had 4 generations age 5 to 80! I was pleasantly surprised at how large the house was. The kids area was separate from the two adult living areas. A real plus. The firepit & bocce ball area was a lot of fun. The icing on the cake is the Blanco River. You did have to go down a semi steep walkway to the river. But my 80 yr old mom had no problems, nor did I with a torn meniscus. The big cypress trees over the beautiful clear river was so peaceful & relaxing. I never found the water deeper than shoulder deep. We practically had the entire river to ourselves, except for one visiting family. Plenty of space for all. We floated in tubes, put chairs in the water, found pretty rocks , fished, caught a baby turtle. Kids loved swimming underwater. I highly recommend this hidden gem!
