Texas Ranch Life offers a true Texas experience. You can go horseback riding, whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider. The ranch also has fishing, skeet shooting and hunting, with all equipment provided. The ranch offers overnight accommodations, but since it is just an hour from Houston, you can plan to just spend the day.

We spent a weekend at the ranch, with all the greatest expectations, given all the positive reviews. On the first night, the upstairs toilet overflowed. The bathroom floor was not sealed, and the overflow leaked downstairs over the kitchen counters. That probably explained the strange smell that was emanating from the kitchen when we arrived. They fixed the clogged toilet... More

If you want to stay on a cattle ranch and stay in historic accommodations, then this is your place! You can do nothing or go horseback riding, shooting, or throw a tomahawk. The Creekside House is their newest acquisition and it's amazing, Built around 1855, it was relocated here and restored to its original feel. Modern conveniences have been added,... More

I stayed at the Creekside House with friends for a weekend of antique shopping at Round Top. The house is lovely with a nice, large front porch and a large back porch off the kitchen with a lower deck. The kitchen, while not a full kitchen in our opinion, was adequate for our needs. The house is beautifully decorated to... More

Wonderful experience! Amazingly imaginative restored historic homes and many opportunities for ranch related activities from Texas BBQ cooking, fishing, riding, "mule tours", skeet shooting, tomahawk throwing to riding the original mechanical bull from Gilly's which also appeared in the movie Urban Cowboy. While not the cheapest place, it is an extraordinary place. It was a welcome respite from a busy... More

Good food and great service, down home atmosphere, right on the main drag of town in a converted service station. They grow their own vegetables on site.
