We have been spending a long weekend at Dixie Dude ranch every year, for the past 5 years. Our youngest child was 4 years old the first year and rode double with Mom, he is now a seasoned little wrangler and loves the two daily horseback rides (which is included your package). This is not a fancy ranch. Its rustic... More

My mother and I recently stayed at the Dixie Dude and I can't put into words how much of an amazing time we had! Being in the travel industry in Australia, I researched intensely before making a decision on a ranch to stay at - and through reviews this place excelled - and the reviews aren't wrong! The moment I... More

Having decided to visit Texas for our main holiday, we just had to stay on a ranch. After a bit of digging and research, we settled on Dixie Dude and are extremely glad we did. The people, the place, the food, the animals...everything was top notch. We arrived with no real expectations, but we left after 3 days feeling chilled,... More

Our group of 6 - 2 adults, 4 teenagers recently spent 3 days at the Dixie Dude Ranch. The accommodations were comfortable but rustic. The food was good and the staff was very friendly. The ranch sits on a beautiful piece of property in the Texas Hill Country. The trail rides were relaxing and the scenery amazing. We enjoyed the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 2 nights in this incredible place. It was really an amazing time. The people were nice, the place was amazing, the food was good. We hiked and horses rode, we did no have experience in horse riding but it was fine. The rooms were pretty but the isolation between them was not perfect, try to... More

Staying at the Dixie Dude Ranch is like staying with friends. Fantastic family-style meals, fun horse rides, and classic cowboy entertainment. The cabins are all different- ask for a description if you want something specific- rustic but comfortable. No TV, no cell phone reception, so you can concentrate on the beautiful scenery and the stars! You will meet interesting people... More

MOST FUN EVER! My bf and I travelled coast to coast and we are SO pleased we decided to stop at the Dixie. Loacted near an amazing little town with lots of cool cowboy shops easy to find. Very welcoming staff who really care about your experience at the ranch. We stayed in the 49er Cabin which was huge and... More

Stayed at the Dixie Dude Ranch 1 week ago, and from the moment I arrived I felt like part of the family. Dixie Dude Ranch is the perfect place for a getaway. I hadn't rode a horse for 10 years, and quite a few people I met at the ranch had never rode a horse, however the staff were very... More

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
