Spent the night in one of their cabins. Nice, clean, quiet. Scoping out the RV Snowbird vacancies to spend the winter months. Kathlyn was fantastic and so helpful with information for us. Really enjoyed visiting with her son, great young man. Graham was the shadow of a true old time cowboy, with the Australian accent. Everyone was having a great... More

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay with outstanding customer service! The attention the staff gave our family was above expectation. They definitely value people over property as there is proof of it being the oldest dude ranch in some of the upkeep. It all makes for a very quaint experience. Our family is ready to book next year's vacation at... More

We went just for an advanced day ride with Graeme. Had one of the best rides we have ever done. Walking the horses the beautiful Medina River was awesome. We did a two hour ride, scenery was great, and we will come back. We stayed for lunch and swam in the pool. Took a bike ride down to the river... More

We accidentally stumbled upon Twin Elms while in Bandera. We came to Bandera to Kayak the Medina river. They have a fantastic piece of property there. They went above and beyond to make us comfortable and to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Everyone we ran across there was more than willing to go out of there way for... More

We held our wedding reception at the Twin Elm Guest Ranch. Wow!! They definitely went above and beyond our expectations. The property and the rooms were wonderful. They spent a lot of time making the ranch look great. The pavilion was decorated gorgeous for the reception including a large center piece. After eating, the tables were moved out for some... More

This was our first stay at a dude ranch and we had an amazing time. The new managers have only been here a few months but their total dedication and commitment to their job is evident. Neither of us have ridden before but Graham made us feel like old hand Cowboys (on the most docile horses but we thought we... More

We spent the Memorial Day weekend witnessing the Twin Oaks staff helping not only their guests but others that were stranded in the Bandera flood until 4 AM and everyone, home and animal was safe. The staff was up at dawn, breakfast ready and happy faces. We still rode horses, went swimming, played games, hiked and felt like we were... More
