Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Dixie Dude Ranch is an all-inclusive resort that offers breathtaking views of the Bandera countryside. Enjoy two hour-long horseback rides daily during your stay and take in the trails with your family. Jump in the pool or hot tub after your rides and be sure to take advantage of each of the home-cooked meals, served three times a day. Dixie Dude Ranch also offers overnight trail rides, an exclusive package perfect for large groups looking to get in touch with Texas. If sleeping on the trails doesn’t appeal to you, enjoy a stay in a guestroom or cabin, where you will have your own bathroom, air conditioning and heat. Accommodations with fireplaces are also available.
Other activities and attractions include hiking, fishing, canoeing, tubing, kayaking, dancing and shopping in downtown Bandera.

I recently took my daughter here for her 14th birthday for a weekend away and we had the most amazing time.It honestly feels like you're visiting family. Everyone is so friendly and due to the way it's set up you get to know and enjoy the other guests, even for slightly less outgoing folks like us. The food was great, the wranglers a ton of fun, and the trail rides were absolutely beautiful. We also got to go on a few holes, accompanied by the ranch dog, Poncho. It was so nice unplugging and relaxing, doing puzzles, playing boardgames with new friends, ping pong, tetherball, fishing, and even just sitting around reading. They even made her a birthday cake and everyone sang to her. Just felt so homey. My daughter is already wanting to make plans to go back.
My family and I have been going to the Dixie Dude for over ten years. This past week, I brought friends to ride, and the Dixie never disappoints. Amazing rides and views and the Texas Hospitality just cannot be beat.
