A Bespoke Texas Retreat

By Amy Durham

The Hill Country escape boasts event space and scenic lodging near the Pedernales River.

Just an hour from both Austin and San Antonio in the Texas Hill Country, Walden Retreats offers guests a luxury camping experience at Longbranch Ranch. Booking stays for spring 2023, the 96-acre property is situated in the Hill Country along the cliffs of the Pedernales River.

Longbranch, named after Longbranch Bourbon, was established when the master distiller of Wild Turkey, Eddie Russell, helped actor Matthew McConaughey carry out his vision to create a small-batch Kentucky bourbon filtered with Texas mesquite and American oak charcoals. But guests will get more than a great sipping whiskey. The ranch hosts activities ranging from nighttime fly-fishing to hikes along the river, providing both rest and a connection with nature. Safari style luxury tents, complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities, inspire guests with scenic lodging.

For each package booked, Longbranch will match the cost with a donation to The Trail Conservancy, a nonprofit based in Austin.
