Property Description

20 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg. Willow Springs Ranch was developed with family, friends and colleagues in mind. To create an environment that would allow you to become grounded, connected and thoroughly relaxed. The owners went to great lengths to incorporate features of fire, water and wood that will spark your senses. If morning hunting, afternoon spa time, chef prepared dinners, gun room time, rolled cigars and whiskey over ice sound good, you need to look at this one. Ladies, there is a walk-in wine room and a spa that is off the charts. Breathtaking views, wonderful outdoor lounge and patios for luncheons, wood burning fireplace, gas firepits, cascading pool and waterfalls. If you wish, locally sourced food options, chef prepared dinner parties or family around the dining room table will make for great conversation. Only 20 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg where youll find great music, unlimited wine and shopping. I expect you will be planning your first party before you even leave this ranch. Passive income options or keep it for your own use and enjoyment. This property is positioned to be whatever you can dream.

The most incredible views are captured from this impeccably maintained ranch that provides the ultimate retreat set upon a large hill overlooking the serene landscape. Of the 134+ acres, there are 118 acres low and high fenced with wells and tanks, with a Level 3 MLD in place with a Whitetail Deer herd, plus additional ag-exempt low fenced land. The Lodge and connecting barns are designed to encircle a grand walled courtyard with loggia, fire pit and pool, enhancing the immense hospitality offered by the amenities while optimizing the flow. Additionally, the ranch offers an established wellness business, the Willow Room, integrated with features for relaxation and fitness. With a myriad of impressive features, the ranch is ideal for a celebration or wedding venue as well.
