About Us

Bear Creek Ranch is named for a creek that provided life to the farming community here in southeastern Collin County. In recent past, the ranch was named the Silver Bar Ranch, and in its colorful history hosted country music legend George Strait in a private concert. The Foust family is proud to have preserved the barn and ranch buildings for the enjoyment of celebrations only limited to ones imagination. We are conveniently located between Lake Ray Hubbard and Lake Lavon. You will enjoy the lake breezes and the countryside. Our family hopes you will visit and create one of life’s special memories.
