The Dixie Dude has been the best family vacation spot for our family since 1955, I was a little kid and they treated us all like family. The food is 'home made' and every day the meals are served family style. By the end of your stay, you too, will feel like part of the Dixie Dude Ranch family. Four... More

We absolutely loved everything about our stay. The staff were great, every meal was like a nice home cooked meal. We loved everything from fishing in the pond, looking for fireflies while sitting on the porch to horseback riding, also loved how the dogs would go on walks with us and join us at the pond. A much needed place... More

For our annual "Girls' Trip" getaway, my girlfriends and I decided to do something a little different. We decided on horseback riding and found the Dixie Dude Ranch online and booked our trip. Since we were arriving late, we called ahead and Clay was very accommodating, saved our dinners for us after the kitchen closed for the evening and left... More

Without repeating too much of what others have said, we had a wonderful time at the Dixie Dude Ranch. We were looking for a "cowboy" experience for our two boys, 9 and 10, and the Dixie Dude Ranch was exactly as advertised, "a family vacation spot where there's room to stretch your legs, breathe fresh air and gaze at the...

My husband and I visited the Dixie Dude ranch with our stepdaughter for three days. We all loved it and did not want to leave, The wranglers were awesome and the food was great. Our favorite part was probably the horse back riding. They have plenty of things to keep you entertained.

We returned from a four night stay here.The initial impression was exactly what I imagined, the place is full of character that you would expect on a ranch. The accommodation is simple but comfortable,the only housekeeping is a change of towels! All food is taken at specific times in the ranch house and was tasty and plentiful,and maels where fun...

In all honesty my initial impressions of the ranch left me disappointed. Our first call to confirm our impending arrival stirred up no warm welcome or excitement. Questioning room assignments (due to physical challenges) prompted only a gruff "accommodation assignments have already been made). The appearance of the grounds and cabins for one who's never been on a ranch can... More

Just returned to New Jersey from a great vacation in Texas which we finished off with 2 nights at The Dixie Dude Ranch. We decided on the Dixie based on the reviews here and were not disappointed, this place is fantastic, the only regret was not spending longer. Our 2 boys, 12 and 10, had a blast riding the horses,...

It was real fun. We spent part of our honeymoon there and really enjoyed it. The housing is simple but comfortable - you are on a ranch. The horseback riding was fantastic and can be done by anyone without any major experience. The people at the ranch are very engaged and helpful, making you really feel welcome. I utmost enjoyed...
