The Ranch

CowCalfLocated in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, the Wenmohs Ranch is a working cattle ranch that has been in the family for eight generations. It is located in Cypress Mill, Texas, which is west of Austin and north of San Antonio, just off Highway 281 between Marble Falls and Johnson City. (Map)


In recent years, the ranch has become popular as an artists' retreat and school, including an annual meeting of the Outdoor Painters Society each spring.

A Creek Runs Through It . . .

CreekEmerging from an underground river outside the Ranch, Cypress Creek gets its name from the giant Cypress Trees that line its banks as it ambles for over a mile through the ranch. Painting and photography opportunities abound with each step along the creek's banks. (More views)

Guests also enjoy the opportunity to paint and photograph Texas Hill Country scenery, including flowing hayfields, freshly cut hay bales, rolling pastures, roaming cattle, and winding country roads. Year round flora and fauna, including abundant wildflowers in the spring, provide almost unlimited artistic opportunities.
