Me and two friends stayed for two nights at the Dixie Dude ranch, and we had a great time. The standard of the rooms were really nice, without losing the feeling of being at a ranch. All of the staff were both kind and helpfull, and we felt really welcommed there. And you should absolutely try the horse rides :)

What a wonderful place! I just spent three weeks driving cross-country from coast to coast. Dixie Dude Ranch was a true highlight and, with the only exception being the Grand Canyon, my very favorite stop! We spent three days and two nights enjoying the ranch - away from electronic distractions. There was plenty to do: morning and afternoon horseback rides... More

My wife and I are from UK and we went to this Ranch with friends from Texas and although we knew nothing of what we might expect there, we had a most enjoyable time. It is very relaxing place, rural and rustic of course, thats the whole idea. The food was amazing and prepared by the wonderful staff and served... More

My husband & I went as part of a 3 week road trip. No tv & no cell service which was great for us. We really were able to relax & unwind. The swimming pool was great & the wranglers, horses & rides were awesome. A lot of activities such as horse shoes, ping pong, washer toss, tether ball, playground,... More

I went to Dixie Dude Ranch for a work trip and had the best time. If it’s not the friendly dogs running around or the staff that is more than accommodating it’s the cute cabins and cowboys that are what makes this place a great weekend pick. I was very nervous to go horseback riding and they assured me that... More

Let me start by saying until this trip I had NEVER in my life been on a real live horse, and I was quite nervous about that. My Girl Scout troop chose the Dixie Dude Ranch as their end of the year trip and they worked as hard as they could selling box after box of cookies in order to... More

Just got back to Galveston from a 3 day stay at the ranch and my grandson wants to know if we are going back next week!!!! This place was exactly as described. Rustic and homey. Our cabin was the Wrangler and it was perfect for this Gma and her 5 yr old grandson. Simple and comfy with everything we needed... More

I have been coming to the Dixie Dude all of my life (57 years) and continue the tradition with my nephews, niece, sister and 93 year old Mom to celebrate Mother's Day this past weekend. We have been long time family firends and Clay and Diane were wonderful hosts as usual. Super horse back ride for 3 of us and... More

I had a lovely time this past weekend at the Dixie Dude Ranch. I haven't been to Bandera for a few years, and decided to try a different dude ranch this time around (I live about two hours from Bandera). The dude ranch was almost identical to the previous one I'd gone to. Rustic, lots of wide open spaces, friendly... More
