Cypress Creek Retreat was built in 2010. The property was formerly used for ranching. The nearby community of Cypress Mill was settled in the 1880's. Many of the settlers were German families whose descendants still work these ranches. Cypress Mill has an active church, Saint Luke's Episcopal Church.
Today, there are many vineyards.
Driving to Cypress Creek Retreat from Austin you will cross Hammetts Crossing, a low water crossing of the Pedernales River on Hamilton Pool Road. This crossing has been used since the days of the stagecoach. Down the road from Cypress Mill is Round Mountain with the original stagecoach hotel and livery building, now a private residence.
12 miles south of Round Mountain is Johnson City, hometown of Lyndon Johnson.
