Welcome to the Ranch!
Rocking M Ranch is a 15-acre, family-owned ranch conveniently located an hour from Austin and less than two hours from San Antonio and Houston. The area, rich in an abundance of wildlife, wildflowers, and the rolling hills of the Post Oak Savannah region, is the perfect setting to customize your own dream wedding or host other events such as family reunions, quinceaneras, birthdays, anniversaries, or corporate functions. All of life's special events and experiences can be celebrated in this exceptional, rustic venue. We invite you to visit and come see all that Rocking M Ranch has to offer!
The land outside Smithville was purchased by the Meek family in 2006, and by early 2010 construction of a custom-built 4400-square foot vacation rental lodge was completed. Rocking M Ranch quickly became a popular weekend getaway for central Texans looking to escape the stress of city life and enjoy the tranquility of the countryside. Smithville, Texas is a unique and charming town off State Highway 71, and the first named "film-friendly" community by the Texas Film Commission. It is best known for classic films such as “Hope Floats” starring Sandra Bullock and “Tree of Life” starring Brad Pitt. Rocking M Ranch has enjoyed providing lodging for film stars, crews, and guests looking to
enjoy an upscale country experience.
The Adventure Begins
In 2020, after months of planning and hard work, we began expansion of the outdoor area surrounding the lodge to include a wedding and event venue for 150-plus guests. This exceptional space includes an in-ground pool, firepit, shade structure, pond, ceremony and alter, picnic, dining and dancing areas, and lawn games. Throw open large double gates to kick up some casual, food truck fun for your event, or plan a romantic, formal affair under tree-lit, starry skies. This new outdoor venue is a natural fit to our existing lodging service where family and close friends can gather in one place for a few days relaxation following your special day. There’s something for everyone at Rocking M Ranch - it is "real country, real close".
