We stayed here for 4 nights and had the best time. My 3 year old loved everything. Cowboy Chris was wonderful as well as Kim and the ladies in the kitchen :) We loved the riding, the beautiful pool and grounds, the fresh air and mountains, the delicious food which was varied every day, the animals especially RC the horse,...

Most young boys dream of being an actual cowboy, well for 3 days I was. We stayed with Dixie Dude and were a bit apprehensive as we just didn't know what to expect. When we drove into the ranch we were actually met by about 20 loose horses. We drove slowly passed them but they didn't seem remotely bothered by... More

We really enjoyed our 2 days here - very laid back and friendly, with comfortable cabins and twice daily horserides. Wrangler Chris was lovely and helpful and made sure everyone enjoyed their ride. The trick roper that came to entertain one night was also excellent. The set up and family meals help you to get talking to the other guests,... More

Our stay at the Dixie Dude Ranch in August 2014 was the highlight of our Texas trip. My wife and I stayed with our 4 children and enjoyed every second of it. We especially enjoyed the daily horse rides, the meals, and the environment.

Every meal was wonderful and authentic! The horseback trail rides were all fun and memorable! Our cabin was very comfortable with an air conditioner that stayed cold in hot August weather. The huge pool was a hit. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. As other reviews state, lots of international visitors and everybody we met loved their experience.... More

I'm going to list some fun stuff about the Dixie Dude Ranch, but first...go book your trip NOW. Just go- whether it's a girls trip, guys trip, couples, families... Doesn't matter! It's the best getaway that's different than your average beach trip and extremely well priced. - Half of the people visiting are from Europe. The Netherlands, Sweden, France, Germany...... More

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...
