Description of the Lampasas vacation home rental
M&M Hill Country Creekside is a unique and captivating retreat among Texas hill country vacation rentals. We like to call it 'paradise in a 20 acre hill-country bottle.' And if gas prices or the shaky economy requires you to stretch your vacation dollar, you won't find a better value among Texas hill country vacation rentals.

What do our guests enjoy most about their time at M&M Creekside?

Swimming, Wading, and Fishing along our 1600 ft of Spring-fed Sulfur Creek frontage
Relaxing on our 30' x 13' ft balcony overlooking the creek and 20 acres
Hiking the ridges and creekline of our 20 acres
The private pool
Two hill country wineries within 5 miles of our front door; two more wineries within 30 miles.
Hancock Park Golf Course only 3 miles from our front door
Comfortably accommodating large groups with our ability to sleep 18 in beds
Touring the local shops, restaurants, and historic district of Lampasas
Gathering around the two wood-burning fireplaces and outdoor fire pit for wintertime retreats
Inks Lake and Colorado Bend State Parks within and hour's drive.
Half-day outings to the shops and art galleries of Salado
Having a Walmart and HEB grocery less than three miles away
Creating hill country memories that last for generations.

Entering the south gate of M&M Creekside is the start of your leaving a crowded world behind. Cedar-lined hillsides descend to open pasture lands sprinkled with mature oaks and several other species of native trees growing along the over 1600 ft. of vibrant, spring-fed Sulfur Creek. This creek is the source of our guests' inspiration and rejuvenation, which is no surprise given the fact that Lampasas was settled in the mid-1800's for the curative power of its springs. Our creek runs year-round and features waterfalls and several deep pools - perfect for swimming, tubing, fishing, skipping rocks, or just sitting under a tree and watching a Fall leaf make its lazy way down river.

A spacious 3500+ square foot home features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on two stories. Four of the five bedrooms offer private french-door access to the rear patio and deck that overlook the private pool and creek below. Elderly guests who have difficulty with stairs need not worry, as the two stories operate as a 1st floor main level with kitchen, family room, and two bedrooms, with a stairway leading downward to a basement level with three additional bedrooms and gameroom.

The open kitchen includes a big breakfast area and beamed ceiling. The main floor living features a fireplace and wraparound deck looking directly onto the creek and across the property's pasture lands. The master bedroom includes an entrance to the deck and its own private full bath. A 2nd bedroom on the main floor also has access to a 2nd full bath. The main level also features a large utility room with washer/dryer and half bath. The basement floor includes a large gameroom with a 2nd fireplace, 3 large bedrooms, a full bath, and a full wet bar and microwave. The gameroom has french doors leading to a stone patio with BBQ area and a beautiful pool overlooking Sulfur Creek. The entire property is gated and fully fenced, lending to the privacy that hill country vacationers prefer.
Area Information
Located in Lampasas, TX, this Texas Hill Country Vacation Rental is about 45 miles northwest of Austin, 170 miles south of Dallas, and 115 miles north of San Antonio. While secluded on County Road 3010, our creekside ranch is only minutes from Highways 190, 183, and 281 and only 2 miles away from a full service Walmart w/ grocery. The tourist-friendly town square of Lampasas is easily walkable, sprinkled with local shops and the kind of country cookin' restaurants that have faithfully served the town's lifelong residents. Hancock Park Golf Course offers 18 holes of scenic fairways and greens that interplay with the hills and creek on which Lampasas was founded. Lampasas also features two local wineries you may be interested in touring: Pillar Bluff and Texas Legato. Bring a bottle back from one of these local vineyards and enjoy a glass of wine from our balcony as the sun sets on our hill country horizon.

It doesn’t take long to access many of the hill country’s outdoor and entertainment assets from M&M Creekside’s central location. An hour's drive west takes you to Colorado Bend State Park. Lake Buchanan is also a similarly short drive to the southwest, and Inks Lake State Park is only 40 minutes from your front door. More golf options await in nearby Copperas Cove (Copperas Cove Golf Course) and Burnet (Delaware Springs Golf Course). Then there is Austin. Depart M&M Creekside in the late afternoon and you'll arrive in central Austin in just over an hour, ready to savor the dining and music delights of 6th Street, or to join 98,000 of your closest friends at a primetime Texas Longhorns football game.

So if you are looking for a hill country destination to serve your honeymoon, family reunion, pastoral retreat, boy scout troop, romantic getaway, or long-overdue recharging of the soul, M&M Creekside (and a creek full of catfish and bass) awaits your arrival! If you have any questions or special requests, please give us a call.

Great place to stay

This was our first time to stay at M&M Creekside, but it will certainly not be our last. Everything about the property was as advertised. We had a full house of people and plenty of room. Sometimes it was almost a game trying to find everyone to get them together. The dinner bell on the back porch came in handy several times to call in the fishermen, which by the way caught some nice ones in the creek. Some of the young brave ones even tried out the pool. A little chilly in April, but then kids don't really mind if they're having fun. It was a great weekend and very relaxing.

Great Time At Creekside

Our family had a reunion January 4th and 5th at M&M Creekside. Everything was so relaxing, from hiking on the beautiful property or sitting on the deck enjoying nature. Winter is lovely and it's a great place to snuggle up in the spacious living room next to the fireplace. Everything is provided which makes it easy to jump in the car and go. The owners are wonderful and gracious. Our family had a great time and we will definitely go again.

Better than the picture

Ideal property to get away and relax, even though you're .5 miles from the highway it seems you're in the country. I will definitely go back again!

Bryan & Jane Thomas

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Robert. We will sure look forward to your visit in the future. We are making improvements all the time, recently we added stone steps by the porch. I think they might have begun the work while you were there.

Anyway, thanks again, we aim to please!

Great family/friend vacation house

If you like to enjoy a low key outdoorish vacation rental this is the place for you. It comfortably fit 4 families. The creek is full of average size fish, which is great for kid fishing( bass, crappy, catfish). The pool is great for kids to adults. All around great place to stay and enjoy friends/families.

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Brad, we hope you come back again soon!

Great place for a family reunion

The M&M Creekside property is an older home which we have rented for the past two years for our family reunion. The property has five bedrooms with bed space for 18. The kitchen is very well stocked with plenty of silverware, plates, and cooking implements. There is a running creek with fish, lots of area to walk, and a pool! We have enjoyed our stay each time we have gone, and the crew has voted to go there again next year!

Carol, we are always glad to see you return. Thanks for your great review!

Family Vacation

Had a wonderful vacation with my husband,children & inlaws. The house was very roomy & very comfortable. The owners had more than enough room to fit all 12 guests. The pool was wonderful, & we also did a little bit of fishing. The creek was a bit low due to the summer month. My favorite part of the house was the wrap around porch. I would definately recomend this home .

Bryan & Jane Thomas

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words. We work awfully hard to keep the property and house in good shape. Glad you had a good time, please do come again!

Fabulous Vacation Home

We had a large group stay in this wonderful home. The kitchen is well stocked, the swimming pool is a fabulous place to cool off. It has a covered upper deck (great place to enjoy your coffee or meal. The beds were very comfortable. The owners made our check in and check out very easy. I would offer a word of caution about the creek. There are snakes around the creek (but it is a creek in the country so we expected it). Plenty of room to enjoy the peace and quite. We hope to return next year and enjoy this wonderful home again.

Bryan & Jane Thomas

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Lisa, for the nice review. We are really glad y'all had a great time. But snakes in the creek? Wow, I've only seen one in two years we've owned it and he was on the other side of the bank. We might have to go hunting soon. :)
Come again soon and thank again! Jane Thomas

Texas Family Christmas

Our four families gathered at M & M Creekside on Dec. 22, 2012.....we had a total of 15 family members that enjoyed have a perfect place to be together for four days of fun, craft projects, laughter and cooking family favorites for all to enjoy. The home was perfect for our group.....9 adults and 6 granddaughters ranging in ages 8-22. We had a very good time and accomodations were great. We had such a good time and but we're already wondering what it would be like in the summer..loads of fun, we're sure. Thanks you for allowing us to share your home.

Bryan & Jane Thomas

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for your great comments! We hope you come back to see us again in the Summer or Spring. It's so beautiful when everything is green. Please help us pray for rain!

WONDERFUL FAMILY TIME

We Were So Pleased With The Size Of This Home And All The Outside Living Area! The Humming Birds Just Added A Special Touch! There Was 10 Adults Ages 25 To 60 And 4 Children Ages 8mos To 8 Yrs Old And The House Was Perfect For All Ages. The Wrap Around Porch Add Some Nice Outside Eating And Game Playing Area. The Pool Is Very Nice But It Was Too Cool To Use On Our Weekend But We Made Use Of The Outdoor Grill. I Was Also Pleasantly Surprise With All The Kitchen Utensils, Cookware And Dishes It Really Is A Full Kitchen. We Do Hope To Stay Here Again Some Day.

Bryan & Jane Thomas

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Judy! We were happy to have you as guests and are so glad you enjoyed your stay at M&M Creekside! We work hard to please our guests and I'm a foodie so the kitchen is important to me. We always have improvements to make and we have big plans for the future!

Private Paradise!

We loved our stay here. There were 11 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the pool and balcony/patio areas. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was stocked with all the items we needed to prepare meals. My husband caught a big catfish the first night and we loved wading down the creek and sitting in the waterfalls. It's close to town for making those trips to the grocery store! Having the land around us was nice for privacy and taking morning walks with a cup of coffee. Everyone said it was the best place we have stayed at to date! The only idea we came up with.....would be to put a hammock out between the trees! We did s'mores one night at the firepit and the kids loved it. We were surprised that mosquitoes were never an issue during our stay, which really made it nice! We would highly recommend staying here!

Thank you for your kind words! We'd love to have you again - we're making big plans for improvements all the time, so we hope you'll come back soon! Thanks again!

Nice place, surprised by Lampasas

The home was excellent. Nicely appointed, lots of room, the pool was good and clean, cable and wifi worked our entire time. Great for lots of kids. The area is peaceful and tranquil. The only downside was the creek running low but still some areas to enjoy. We were surprised by some of the little joys to be found in and around Lampasas -- the spring-fed pool, the park along the river, the very clean and nice community pool with slides and other stuff for kids, and a couple nice restaurants. The owners were very nice and helpful. We hope to return again.

Second Summer Stay at M&M

We had such a good time last year, we went back this summer! There is so much to do! Except for a little bow fishing by the men, we didn't make it to the creek. With all the swimming, foosball competitions, dominoe games, cards, cooking, eating, movies and cat napping, we never found time in our 4 day stay to get down there! The kids lived in the pool! This place is perfect for a large group get-away! Very private.

Family Vacation

All six of our adult children plus four granddaughters enjoyed this long weekend get away. The pool was the highlight of the house due to the Texas heat - every day over 100. Because of the drought in Texas the creek just out side the house was not as clear but a little way down it was running and the girls enjoyed it. Fishing was fun and hiking during the 'cooler' mornings was an adventure. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful retreat for a large group.

Family reunion at M&M Creekside

We had such a good time at M&M Creekside in Lampasas. The house was well equipped, the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the many areas set up for conversation, around the pool, on the porch, game room and living room. The children loved the creek for fishing and they loved the feel of exploring "the wild". We city people enjoyed the quiet.

a water pipe broke during our stay but adequate repairs were handled as promptly as could be expected on a holiday. These kind of things can happen anywhere at any time.

Fantastic Weekend Retreat

Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. Wonderful clean pool and completely funished home made a perfect weekend. Creek was clean and clear and made for wonderful walking and fishing. Nearby town had wineries and great restaurant. Nothing could match te sunset from the deck. Will definitely go back.
