I only live a few miles away in San Antonio, but I enjoyed my stay and have not stopped talking about it to friends and family. I think this is now my favorite day trip location on my list. Extremely nice staff, especially Ms. Kathlyn, treated everyone like family felt like they have known you your whole life. My 6yr... More

Just passing through and found this place. Staff is friendly, horses well cared for. If you get a chance, really sit and chat with the staff...they have some great stories to tell! Had my first horseback riding lesson here. Couldn't have found a better way to spend my day

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

This is our third stay at the rv park at twin elm, two with the kiddos and once as two adults. All three visits have been great, where else can you find great level well spaced rv sites with full hookups and awesome facilities along with horse riding, pool, campfires, roping volleyball, basketball and lots of fun for the kids....

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
