Within minutes from The Salt Lick, Trattoria Lisina, as well as multiple breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

The terrain has a gentle roll with many large live oak and cedar elm trees dotting the landscape, providing a park-like setting with manicured areas where cedar has been selectively removed over the years. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, or going on an exploring excursion with friends and family down to the creek area. A seasonal grotto sheds water into Onion Creek and is a neat area to explore. Spend time on the sleeping porch, where you can relax and take in beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The south boundary of the property is the center line of highly coveted Onion Creek, which stretches for 800± feet. The creek is a beautiful feature, holding water during many parts of the year.
