This is the part of the house people say “WHOA!!” when they see it!

The Party Barn is about 100 feet from the house - close enough to run back and forth between the two, and far enough that you won’t disturb people in the house if you’re playing in the barn.

The Party Barn has:

-Full size pool table with balls and cues.

-Ping pong table with plenty of paddles and balls.

-Foosball table.

-Full bar with giant windows to serve drinks/food from inside AND outside.

- Easy to use sound system. Just plugin your phone or computer.

-Flat screen TV. Has all the channels and cable with all the sports and movie channels. Watch your favorite sports game on and play some pool and foosball at the same time!

-There are 4 bathrooms JUST in the Party Barn alone! Great for when you’re drinking beers with the friends and don’t want to miss the fun!

-Barn has WiFi all over.

That’s just the INSIDE of the barn, OUTSIDE The Party Barn there are:

-2 full regulation Horseshoe pits already setup.

-2 full regulation Washer pits already setup.

-Huge open field area outside the barn for playing games (football, soccer, kickball, frisbee, or general horsing around).

-Miniature Donkeys! Your personal groundskeeper takes care of the donkeys and can help you feed them treats. The donkeys are fenced off, so if you don’t like donkeys you don’t have to interact with them. However most kids and adults loovvvee the donkeys!


Even though we’re on 30 acres, we’re actually surprisingly close to everything! We are easily accessible by Uber (takes about 5 minutes for an Uber to show up).

About Nate Tingley

The ranch is currently managed by Nate Tingley, a long-time family friend of the Yerkovitch family.

Nate is a martial arts expert, kids teacher, and experienced amateur gardener. Rare as it is today, he's native to Austin. He can help you find any local resource you need, from in-house catering services, to local recommendations on pretty much anything.

You can typically expect Nate to greet your group on the day you arrive. He's serves as a backup to Dave (the groundskeeper) to handle your needs while you're on the property.

Why Nate Tingley chose West Oak Hill

A beautiful, well-appointed, 30-acre ranch in the middle of Oak Hill TX today is a rare and delightful oddity. The city is currently growing up around the neighborhood, and we find ourselves with donkeys in the middle of the near hill-country suburbs.

What makes this house unique

The Ranch was originally the Yerkovich family home from 1990 to 2007. They have since decided to open up this special property for other families and groups to enjoy.

* 15 minutes to downtown

* 30 minutes to Dripping Springs

* Great home to HOUSE the wedding family for the event. (unfortunately we don't do wedding events themselves)

* Great Home for a CORPORATE OFF-SITE week (sleeps 18)

* Great Home for a FAMILY REUNION

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We stayed here for a college reunion and couldn't have asked for a better spot. The house had plenty of room, tons of land outside to set-up some outdoor games or just walk around and explore, and an added bonus of the barn with pool, ping-pong, foosball, etc. We'll definitely be back soon!

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

We headed out to Rockin Y Ranch for a guys weekend and it couldn't have been better. The property is awesome and a great retreat away from downtown Austin. The pool is perfect and the party barn provides a great space to hang out of the sun. Thanks to Nate and Dave for making sure our weekend was top notch.

Such a cool place and GREAT team running it!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Rockin' Ranch and it was simply amazing! The house, the pool, the party barn, the animals, the hammocks.... the combination of it all lent itself to an unforgettable weekend! All this and it was only 15 minutes from downtown for when we ventured out (which we barely wanted to do because we were enjoying the house so much!). Nate (the property manager) was very responsive answering all my questions even before we got there and was completely on top of it throughout our stay. Also, just a really nice guy! Dave (the grounds keeper) was also there for us on the daily when we needed anything. I highly recommend! We can't wait to come back!

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything at the ranch met and exceed our expectations. We stayed at the ranch for an extended weekend for a bachelor party. The ranch was a prefect location with so much to do. Either sitting by the pool, checking out the animals, hanging out in the house or what we did playing games in the barn. Downtown was less than 15 minutes away and we had no problems getting transportation to/from the ranch. The host met us at the first day and exchanged numbers to make sure we had everything during our stay. I would highly recommend staying at the ranch for your party/event.

Exceeded Expectations-

  • 5 of 5

The Ranch was absolutely perfect for our three-generation family reunion long weekend. Plenty of room in the house and on the property, everything was a hit, from the pool, to the party barn, to the donkeys and cows, to the hammocks, to the country/big sky feel, to the surprisingly close proximity to downtown. We’ll be back for sure. Thanks for everything-

South Central Austin is at the hub of a number of different scenes. Musical, technology, government, fitness-based, cultural, and other groups make their annual events in Austin for good reason. The ranch is a pleasant country-feeling retreat 30 minutes to downtown Austin, and an Uber away from anything!
