There are few finer, small live water properties in the Texas Hill Country than this very special place, located on Leon Creek, west of prized Mason, about five miles down a private, well-maintained easement road. Featuring over 3,000 feet of both sides of this hard-flowing, crystal clear creek, Blue Hole is the premier small live water property in this area. Cold water surges from beneath limestone ledges bordering the awesome “Blue Hole,” which one can dive into and is over six feet deep. A cool stone diving platform has been constructed, and many families have experienced one-of-a-kind fun with the owners during their annual July 4th swim party for neighbors. This awesome hole is easily accessible by all ages, including babies, and is solid rock bottom and full of fish and lily pads. Colorful cliffs soar around and above it, and the owners have constructed several rock patios/recreation areas to allow guests to recreate safely and comfortably, as underground electric and running water are available. The countryside is mostly rough and rocky, pocked with sinkholes and caves, and the drainages are lined with colorful cliffs, and vistas from some of the high points are staggering. Most of the dead cedar has been removed from the ranch, and the resulting refined look is compelling compared to the stark appearance of the neighbors and their oceans of dead trees. Hunting is very good for whitetail deer, turkey, hogs and varmints, and an occasional axis deer is observed, as are bald eagles. There cannot be a more varied, improved small live water property in the Texas Hill Country. If you can handle the remoteness of it, then you need to come on for a visit!
