great place, beautiful texas hill country. a bit pricy but worth the money. staff and cowboys friendly. cabins are great and roomy. breakfast could be better but wasn't that bad. needs more selections. would go back again and recommend you try this beautiful ranch
We were there in July as stop 2 for our grandson’s 12th birthday ( between Stockyards in Fort Worth and Austin).
Kendra at the desk was very kind and helpful with my beforehand calls. Eddie and Clint, the cowboys, were super.
Thought prices were fair. We knew to buy food & drinks for lunch & snacks & bring with us, so we went to Graham before checking in.
The restaurant is owned by someone else and is ok.
We stayed in Cabin 2 which was an adequate size but very dark. We played cards after dinner & had to take the shades off the lamps to give us more light. I was told that the original cabins did not have lights with he ceiling fans but the newer ones did.
It was 112 degrees when we were there so we cancelled the horseback riding.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the cattle feeding at 9 a. m and did it twice. Shy Guy was able to finally make it over.
Max did a roping lesson with Clint and archery with Eddie and skeet shooting with both of them.
Safety was emphasized and they were friendly and good teachers.
Breakfast was ok —no other people.
In fact, there weren’t many people there. I was told the biggest times are spring and fall. There was a rattlesnake warning posted on the counter when we checked in so I was very careful.
Pool was ok but needed some sprucing up & better towels.
I’m glad that we went. My overall impression is that they were in need of some cash to spruce it up.
Thanks for your kindness to us!
