Cricket Hill Ranch

Welcome to Heaven in the Hill Country

Cricket Hill Ranch is a one-of-a-kind event venue located in Dripping Springs, Texas. The sprawling views of the Hill Country are too beautiful for words.

The sunsets here seem to go on forever, and the peacefulness of the space is so quiet the only thing you can hear in the evenings are the crickets.

The Bride’s Room is luxurious with a gorgeous full bath, huge closet and three additional vanities for your attendants to use.

The Private Terrace off the Bride’s Room is a great place to relax and grab some fresh air while you prepare.

Once you pass through the 22 foot custom gate, you’ll immediately see why Cricket Hill Ranch is indeed a very special place.

Designed specifically for weddings,it offers amenities you won’t find anywhere else in South Texas.

We like to say we cater to couples because we have something special for the bride AND groom.

For the groom, we have a Private Suite, complete with a private bar, a comfortable sitting area, a Terrace, and we also gave him the added bonus of the Game Room.

The Game Room is complete with pool table and TVs to help him compose himself, and assemble with his groomsmen to to relax and prepare for the biggest day of his life.

The place is gorgeous. When you go see it, it speaks for itself. It was the first and only venue my husband and I went to go see for our wedding. As soon as I walked in, I knew it was the one. It lets you enjoy a little bit of both worlds. Its nice, formal, elegant and mansion looking inside with a beautiful spiral staircase. Outside, its just so country, breathtaking and peaceful. It was exactly what I wanted…

We are not wedding planners, we don’t cater food or design wedding flowers…. you can schedule all that with whomever you chose. We are here simply to provide you a beautiful, peaceful, stress-free environment for your special event.

We have nearly 13,000 square feet of facility that will make you feel like we built it just for you… because we did.

Our founder, April McLaughlin, a 5th generation Texan, recognized the beauty of the Hill Country long ago and decided it had to be shared.

After spending almost 10 years looking for just the right spot, we were finally divinely guided to what has become known as Cricket Hill Ranch or ‘ The Hill ‘ for short.

We have a great big family and even more wonderful friends, and we would ALL like to welcome you to our home, Cricket Hill Ranch.

We know you’ll feel the sweet spirit of this special place in Texas and will want to begin your life together here.
