I am a travel occupational therapist... ( retired contract, have a full time gig in ATX) Normally spending my summers on the west coast and returning to Austin for the winters. Once I have finished a job, my husband and I like to take a good old fashioned road trip home, stopping at any and all oceans,rivers, and lakes we pass for a sunset/sunrise paddle.
We have a new addition to the family, our baby girl.
I can back up a trailer with the best of em'! Also auto and home improvements and maintenance. ( Brandon )
I feed the brains to this operation (Lolly)
I have an 12 year old dashund/basset hound mix named Beans. She is pretty low key and gets along with other animals. She may not always be traveling with us.
We enjoy the open ranges of new mexico,Utah, Arizona, and Colorado where you can pull off the paved road and drive down a dirt road a few hundred feet and set up for the night.

This was their second time staying with me. Nice couple and a well behaved dog
It was a pleasure to provide a camping area for this couple. They are young and enjoy traveling. I hope they continue to travel and wish them many new adventures. They are welcome to stay here in the future.
Very nice hosts! Quiet and easy to find location. I'd stay again!
I truly appreciated the great location of this place as it was so close to where my grandkids live. They even got to spend a night with me. We love the free range chickens and purchased a dozen eggs!
The Aristocrafts were great hosts. Greated us during sogging rain and helped us get set up with power and fresh eggs from the chickens. A quiet and peaceful place to chill out.
Lovely creative little area to stay at. The Aristocrafts are knowledgeable on stuff to do in the area, and have tasty farm fresh eggs for sale!
This was our second stay at aristocrafts. We love staying here. The hosts are really nice and it is very conveniently located for a visit to Austin. Our kids loved the horses, and we will love the chicken eggs we bought from our hosts!
Thank you so much!
The Aristocrafts are sweet as can be. The property is peaceful and off the beaten path...but not too far. Accompanied with chickens (farm fresh eggs) and cute horses. It's a humble, drama free boonedocking site that I fell in love with
I really enjoyed spending the night at this peaceful place and my hosts were very welcoming as well! Thanks for everything!
We had a great time. They had great communication and it was easy to find. A bunch of fun animals!
We had such a great stay out on the ranch here in Texas. We loved being around all of the farm animals especially the chickens! They were so fun how they all run around and play and come right up to you. The aristocrafts were super gracious hosts to us and we were super pleased with our stay! Full water and electric hookups for a super reasonable fee! Service was a little spotty, but we didn't spend too much time in our rig so it did not bother us at all. It was super peaceful and fun to be away from the craziness of the city, but just a relatively short drive to all the action as well!
In March 2018, Aristocrafts hosted us for one night. Everything was ok. Unfortunately, they were out of their home. Maybe next time we will have the chance to meet them.
We only met Brandon but he was very nice, helping us park and hookup, encouraging us to explore the property. There are wildflowers everywhere which makes this such a dreamy spot. Wish we were able to stay in the area longer!
Brandon was super nice, and the place was gorgeous and relaxing. Also, the eggs were delicious!
Chickens, horses, wildflowers. Just 30 minutes from Austin. Thank you for having us!
Lolly was a very gracious host. I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet Brandon, but hopefully the next time around I will.
I love the company of the chickens, the donkey and the horse! Oh and not to forget their two dogs, they often came to greet me in the morning! Very sweet.
I hope to come back again someday. I highly recommend the Aristocrafts!
Highly recommended. Close by Austin, the site is ideal to rest after a long day of visit in Austin.
Our hosts are very friendly and gave us so many tips about Austin and Texas.
Thank you so much Lolly !
Close to visit Austin for a few days. And very quiet too. Enjoyed the horses and chckens. Thanks for your hospitality!
We had a great time spending a few nights at the ranch! Fresh eggs were delicious and the host was very kind. Thank you for everything!
we only stayed one evening and were comfortable. Were pleased to purchase some fresh eggs. Thank you for having us.
We stayed 2 nights in this sweet location outside of Austin. Our hosts were very generous and helpful with suggestions. We had a nice flat space to park. We had a beautiful view of the lunar eclipse plus some occasional coyote howls which lent to a great experience! We would stay again!
Had a perfect day at the nearby park and Brandon and Lolly are sweet people and have a nice place for Boondocking! Planning to stay a second night.
We had a very pleasant chat w Brandon, who gave us plenty of the inside scoop on Austin. The property is very expansive and there was no worry about feeling like we were in our hosts’ space. They are very communicative and welcoming. I’d absolutely recommend.
Great place to stay if you are wanting to see Austin, Texas. There were 3 RV sites with water and electric. Unfortunately, we had to cut our visit short because we had to work and our wifi connection with Verizon was not strong enough. Our host were welcoming and accommodating! Would definitely would stay here again if not needing to work! Thank you so much!!
Lolly and Brandon were great hosts, we ended up staying for several days. They provided us with a quiet level parking area with electrical hook ups. Both were very helpful in ideas for visiting Austin and the surrounding area. We really enjoyed staying and appreciated their hospitality!
Thanks again! Dean and Paula
We truly enjoyed our stay with the Aristocrafts on their ranch. Our hosts were perfect and so very friendly and helpful...even going out of their way to help us with an RV task. What a great place to sit and watch fireflies and the moon rise. We would definitely stay here again if we're back this way.
Lolly gave us very precise information to get to el rancho! Perfect situation on our way To Austin.
This place is well on its way to bring a great start up for boondockerswelcome getaway! Multiple sites with electric and water. Eggs to buy at great price! Composting toilet and outdoor shower! So close to Austin and the fair grounds!
Nice property with RV park-style hookups for three as of this writing. We were treated to cicadas and fireflies in the evening for a nice country experience.
Very inviting and hospitable. A nice quiet garden away from the city . Fed the chickens while they were away, very peaceful. Thanks for the stay.
We were able to stay a few nights at Rancho Relajo while visiting our boys at UT Austin. Lolly was friendly and accommodating. Their location is convenient to Austin, they have plenty of space for 3 RVs, and the 30 amp electric and water was great! Thanks so much Lolly!! Kim & Joe
Great quiet location outside of Austin. Great couple with precise communication. Thank you Lolly and Brandon!
Right outside of Austin is this great spot that Lolly created. Lots of space and private - Would def stop bye again!
Thanks for the boondock
This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Austin. The Aristocrafts are very welcoming and there property is nice and has a great Austin "vibe". They have a lot of knowledge on the area! Our daughter loved the chickens! We cannot wait to try the eggs! Thank you so much for the great stay!
Our hosts were so welcoming and had a great spot outside of Austin where we could unwind away from the city at the end of the day. Great people, lovely dog and of course the free range eggs were delicious. Thanks for the beers on the porch <emoji> Heather and Ross
A good spot to boondock among the few acres of land. Owners are nice and welcoming, but also give you your privacy. They are also familiar with Austin spots to suggest as well, can't go wrong there! Unfortunately, we had to cut our visit there short due to electrical challenges but it was a nice, peaceful stay while it lasted. Less than 20 miles from Downtown Austin, which was nice!
It was so nice to get to know Aristocrafts a little. Enjoyed their little oasis not far from Austin. And their eggs are delicious!
We had a short stay but we enjoyed the site, very secluded and very close to Austin. Great communication with both hosts and helpful info for activities and parking in Austin. Thank you both!
We had a great time here during our stay in Austin. Thank you so much!
Great spot 30 minutes from the city. Local knowledge and very welcoming. I would highly recommend Aristocrafts to anyone looking to explore Austin. Thank y'all so much for having us!
We loved our stay at Aristocrafts' place. There was plenty of room for our 35' Bluebird and, of course, for our dog to run! Clear, starry skies and a little creek nearby, were icing on the cake. Also, our boondocking neighbors were a joy to spend time with! Thanks you guys!

Great and quiet place to stay by friendly and helpfull Guy's . Nearby big park for picknick and water for your tank or empty the portable tank. Austin nice town for bikiing!
We stayed one night in our small van conversion motorhome with Aristocrafts. Her communication was excellent; we arrived at 8:45 p.m. and she was waiting for us on the porch. The property is remote but easy to get to from Austin, and not difficult to find, even in the dark. Their property is level, grassy and lovely. We walked our pups up the road in the morning. L and D were out to feed their chickens so we chatted for a bit before hitting the road. We felt very safe and peaceful here. We appreciated the stay. Thank you!!! A+ spot.
This was our first boondocking experience though boondockerswelcome.com and I could not have asked for better hosts. Aristocrafts were very accommodating and made our stay a pleasure. I cannot recommend these guys enough.
Thanks so much for having us.
My husband and I stayed at Aristocraft's place outside of Austin over Thanksgiving. They were very welcoming and I was glad that we had found them. This was our first boondocking experience, and it was so positive that I'm sure we'll do it again. They live out in the country and have chickens. Watching them kept our cat 'dini happy while we were in town with our granddaughter and the rest of the family. I hope that we get to see Aristocrafts sometime in the future.
Webberville Park is near here. Soccer fields. Softball fields. Picnic pavilions. And a boat launch to the Colorado River. Very nice.
The Aristocrafts were awesome hosts. Very generous, offering both electric and water. Very cool location in a country setting, yet only ~15 miles from Austin. Nice location to go see the city and then come back to a quiet, relaxing camping spot.
Hope to see the Aristocrafts again. Would like to see all the improvements planned for the property.
Thanks for a great stay.
They were so wonderful and generous letting us stay on short notice on their property. They were out of town and still let us stay. They have lots of land and were far enough from neighbors so that we could run our generators and not feel like we were bothering anyone. We ended up running in to some issues and stayed for longer than expected and they were really cool about it. It was a peaceful place to stay where we could see the stars and take our time learning all the ins and outs of our RV. We are so grateful we stayed with them as our first experience on Boondockers Welcome and would definitely stay there again if we needed a place to stay near Austin!
We had a wonderful stay on this property! They were so kind and helpful. The property is just a short (20 minute) drive from Austin... close enough to explore the city but far enough to get away and have some quiet time. Their property is huge and there are tons of places to park where you can feel completely secluded and know you aren't bothering them or their neighbors (our generator was very noisy). They are VERY experienced RVers and know all of the places and routes to take in the south western U.S. They had heaps of great recommendations for us. Thanks for letting us stay for so long and for all of the travel tips. We hope to cross paths with you guys again!
