I only went for a one hour horseback trail ride. The wrangler Joe was very helpful in making sure that I had the best experience possible. I did not stay overnight at one of the cabins but that is in my future plans.

Living in a ranch as we thought it could be... just better. Accomodation ( nice little cottage), horse riding in beautiful scenery with cow boys out of a movie, very friendly people, good food, entertainment. Even the dogs have a real sense of hospitality, going for a walk with you. Fantastic experience that we highly recommend.

We rode about 3 hours over two days on real nice trails, valleys and hills. Better than simple flat wide trails. Meals were less than "ranch" style - hot dogs, meat loaf, chicken, dry pasta, chili and other simple foods. Flavors were not bold; basic salt and pepper. Desserts were grocery store made like sheet cake and brownies. No meals... More

My husband and I got married at the Dixie Dude Ranch. With over 40 friends and family staying the weekend, it was a beautiful memory we've shared with those that mean the most to us. Our first visit to the ranch in November 2013 led us to wed there almost a year later. Kim, Clay & the all the fantastic... More

We spent 3 nights at the ranch post the U.S. Grand Prix and had an excellent time! All staff were welcoming and friendly (as were the ranch dogs), the accommodation was rustic but clean and comfortable. The home cooking could not be faulted and was plentiful. The wranglers were very patient with my nervous wife and helped us both really... More

Absolutely fabulous experience. Felt like the real deal. The whole atmosphere was extremely relaxed but very well managed. The staff were superb and made it feel very homely and authentic whilst taking care of every need. The big selling point for us at this ranch however was the fact that children under 6 could ride double with their parents and... More

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
