Relax, explore, hike, bike, horseback ride, birdwatch, hunt (exclusive use only), or let us help you design a special program for you, your friends and family at our 706 acre working ranch while staying in the rustic restored Maetze-von Dohlen located in Berclair between Goliad and Beeville, Texas.

The Historic Maetze-von Dohlen home was built in 1877 in Goliad Texas and was moved to its new home at the Barnhart Q5 Ranch, just north of Berclair, TX. Lovingly restored, the pine walls, chandeliers, 12 foot ceilings, fireplaces and 6 foot windows with panoramic views make this an ideal setting for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Barnhart Ranch & Nature Retreat now offers THREE Separate Houses

The Barnhart Q5 Ranch was awarded Texas Parks & Wildlife's Lone Star Land Stewardship Award "In Recognition of Outstanding Efforts in the Conservation and Enhancement of Wildlife Habitat in Texas" in 2004. It has over 18 miles of hike and bike trails through its rolling South Texas brush country. We feed wildlife year-round at 8 of our ponds around the property, and offer wildlife viewing and photography or hunting blinds at each site. Located within the intersection of the southern and northern migratory paths, birdwatchers can see large numbers of green jay, bunting, raptors, heron, ibis, hummingbird, and more. Deer, Bobwhite quail, dove, turkey, and the occasional bobcat can be sited. Our night sky is black and loaded with stars. Grab your pillows and head for the high point on stargazer hill for fabulous stargazing while coyote serenade you.

Bring your own horses - stabling fees at $25./night per.

Come for a Quiet, Relaxed Stay ~ and
