With the race full we decided to turn some attention to lodging and such for thsoe of you that are traveling in to race.
The ranch is closest to Dripping Springs and then Johnson City, Texas. Since both of these towns are pretty small they're won't be an abundance of large hotels but there are a few. Some lodging options for Johnson City can be found here
For those that like to camp, there is no camping on the property, and the closest state campground filled up, but there are other camping options are available here, here, and here.
For those that want some extra comfort the Texas Hill Country has abundant B&B and cottage rentals. There are some suggestions here.
From Austin, the ranch is roughly a 45 minute drive, so you'll have plenty of Austin options as well. Hopefully this will help the planning for you all. We'll keep working on things to do and places to visit while you're here.
