Eagle Dancer Ranch was one of the first ranches homesteaded in the pristine Sisterdale valley north of Boerne.

Carl Christen Fredrich Kasten acquired the ranch in 1874 during a scouting trip to Texas from his home in Germany. He immediately fell in love with the Sisterdale valley and vowed to return with his family.

And he did return in 1876 with his wife Frederika and children to make the ranch his permanent home. Many generations of Kastens have lived on the ranch since that time.

Eagle Dancer Ranch remained in the Kasten family for over 127 years before it changed hands to the current owners. Several Kasten family members still reside on nearby ranch land that was part of the original 2500 acre homestead.




Eagle Dancer Ranch is a protected wildlife habitat and has been recognized by the Texas Forest Service as a devoted forestry steward of its more than 50 native tree species and plants to create a complete Texas Arboretum of native trees and shrubs. 

An abundance of wild turkey, quail, doves, ducks, white tail, and axis deer roam the property free from the dangers of hunters. 

The road into the ranch crosses Kendall County’s only covered bridge, and spans the Werner Creek before climbing the cliffs to a plateau where the homestead ranch buildings are located.  The romantic, covered bridge and oversized ranch barn make a stunning location to celebrate your once in a lifetime wedding vows.
