Cool Water Acres  is located 5 miles from downtown Bandera, Texas and encompasses 54 acres of beautiful Texas Hill Country. We offer a Bed and Breakfast Cabin for short stays and a Vacation Rental Home rented monthly. A private seven acre spring fed lake provides cool clear water for swimming, snorkeling, fishing and relaxing. The lake was built in the 50’s around a dam on Indian Creek and ranges in depth from 1 to 20 feet. Most of the year overflow waters from the underground springs in the lake, pass over a spill way and meander their way to a dramatic 15 foot waterfall and pool. Bass, perch and catfish are plentiful and easily caught, when they’re in the mood. Two floating docks provide for fishing and sun bathing. Fishing poles are provided as well as a 2 person pedal boat for exploring the lake. A 2 person electric powered bass boat is available to serious fisherman. The rest of the ranch topography contains varied terrain and elevations which make for wonderful hiking excursions. The quarry, from which the material for the dam was taken, was an ocean floor millions of years ago and sea fossils abound. Another part of the ranch runs through a cool tree covered gorge, where it is common to see deer, turkey, and armadillos. And on another, you can be perched up on a high ledge once used by Indian lookouts and view the magnificent surrounding hills.
