The Don Strange Ranch

Behind our beautiful venues and elegant event spaces, you’ll find a team dedicated to serving you.

History of the Ranch

In 1844, Bavarian-born civil engineer Nicolas Zink (1812 – 1887) was selected to lead a group of German immigrants overseas to establish settlements on a Texas land grant.  Zink built homes in a variety of places, including Sisterdale, Comfort, and an area south of Fredericksburg. In 1868, he acquired the ranch and built the central portion of the restored limestone house found on the ranch today.  Zink lived on the ranch until his death.

Don Strange purchased the ranch in 1952.  It has earned an exceptional reputation for providing impeccable service, hosting fabulous events and providing world-class entertainment. From small, private dinners to memorable meals and events welcoming thousands, we help people celebrate weddings, events like no other.

We welcome visitors to our ranch throughout the year with a host of venues and activities.  We’re committed to delivering and expectional experience for your next party, corporate event or wedding.  Enjoy a magical evening in Kendall Creek, our premier wedding venue with its ranch charm, or host your employees, family activities and entertainment at our Headquarters. Run our adventure course and tower climb while enjoying a meal in the outdoors surrounded by our longhorn. Don Strange Ranch is one of the very best event venues in the Texas Hill Country.

We promise excellence and attention to your needs.  Let’s build amazing experiences and memories together.

Customer Testimonials

This was our wedding venue and it was beautiful.  Two amazing sites to choose from on property and everywhere you go is so pretty!  They are a current long horn ranch so for guests they provide feed and have everyone feed the Longhorns!  All staff were extremely nice and accommodating, I don’t think we ever got a “No” from them;  if we wanted it, they made it happen!

KirstenIf we wanted it, they made it happen!

We had a phenomenal experience using Kendal Creek at Don Strange Ranch for our wedding venue.  Laura and Natalie were wonderful to work with, extremely helpful, attentive to detail and accommodating.  The venue is a beautiful wood building with rustic/vintage vibes and romantic strings of lights.  Our wedding package included a longhorn feeding experience that our guests enjoyed while we took photos.  At night they allow sparkler send offs.  Our wedding was truly magical.
