We decided to go somewhere involving horses for my sons 5th birthday and stumbled upon them. I was torn because they had amazing reviews but seemed overpriced. We had a party of 9 and from the minute we arrived we were treated like family. Great staff in the kitchen who offered to make a PB&J one night when the kids... More

I really don't know where to start, I have so many positive things to say about this ranch! We looked into all the ranches in Bandera and settled for a two night stay in the Dixie Dude Ranch as it just looked the most fun and it is the best decision we made regarding our three week trip around Texas....

My sister, mother and I visited the ranch on Sat 7 Nov, which turned out to be a chilly night. We were extremely cold during the night with only a sheet and a thin blanket on the beds in our cabin and had to put on our clothes to keep warm. The staff all disappeared as soon as dinner was... More

It was everything I expected. Staff was superb! Website was true to their word. Cabins and lodge were clean. Wranglers were a hoot! Would come back in the future and recommend to families with older than 5years old, who love outdoors and animals The charm of family owned and been in the family for 4 generations is quite the beauty...

We had a fantastic time at the ranch. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was great and the horse rides were fun. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The town of Bandera is great also. I love that this ranch is family owned and run and they really want everyone to enjoy their stay. Would... More

This was our first time at a dude ranch and it was very relaxing. The staff was great, especially the dining room servers...couldn't do enough for you and always had a smile on their face. Trail rides weren't quite what we expected...they were advertised as 2 one hour trail rides a day...most lasted about 40 minutes by the time they... More

Just a note that the television sound has returned. It appears that someone wanted to tinker with the cables in the back, and one was plugged into an incorrect port. It is rare for the television to be turned on at all, but it's ready for anyone who wants it. More

Planned our annual Girls Trip to the Dixie Dude Ranch (DDR) based on one referral and the DDR website. By far one of our best girls trips that we have taken. Living in San Diego we naively decided to head to TX as it was heating up for the 4th of July. Man it was HOT at the end of... More

Spending a few days at Dixie Dude Ranch for our 35th anniversary was a perfect decision. We thoroughly enjoyed our cabin, the food, the trail rides, and the hospitality of everyone at the ranch. They made our special day one that we will remember. Happy Trails until we meet again!

We had a great day riding eating and swimming. We could only fit one day in, but wish we'd stayed for a few. The food was good and plentiful, there were both indoor and outdoor pools. We did a trail ride which was very scenic.

We hope that this kind review is for Dixie Dude Ranch; however, we would just like to clarify that we do not have an indoor swimming pool. Our pool and hot tub are both outdoors. More
