Welcome to Rancho No Tengo

Rancho No Tengo – literal translation: “I have no ranch” which gives you an idea of the simplicity and rough country fun of this whimsical artistic retreat. The Rancho No Tengo compound is made up of several buildings connected by patios and breezeways, all created by from earth, wood, found objects and second hand materials.

Rancho No Tengo is available for short term rentals to writers, painters, musicians, or other artists/artisans/activists/environmentally conscious individuals who need to get away from it all and do their work or rest in a beautiful hill country location full of wildlife, brilliant sunsets and cool mornings, two minutes from the western shore of Lake Buchanan in Central Texas.

Rancho No Tengo is also an excellent film set for Mexican or Western movies. The following movies were shot there:
The Legend of Ghost Wolf - director Shane Scott
Rancho No Tengo - director Joe King Carrasco
Bluebonnett Chronicles
Diablo County Slave Ranch
Joe King Carrasco's Cu Ru Cu Pa music video


Rancho No Tengo is a little bit of Mexico, deep in the heart of Texas.

Guest Testimonials

“Rancho No Tengo is a wonderful retreat from my busy life.  Within minutes of arriving I feel my body relax as I kick back in the center courtyard and listen to the birds sing."                             Kim


"I first brought my brothers and father for his 77th birthday to RNT for a fishing trip on Lake Buchanan. It was a blast and we fell in love with the place. I took many pictures to show my wife, and she was excited to take her first visit to RNT a month later. It was just a real pleasure to go somewhere that was so comfortable, funky and fun, and to just do NOTHING...it has been a perfect get-away for us. Thanks again for sharing."
