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

my family (wife and 2 daughters 10 and 7) absolutley loved this place! I have no love of horses, nor riding them, but Dixie Dude Ranch, the staff, wranglers and the horses completely won me over. The ranch, facilities and accommodation and basic, but comfortable. The staff a delight and the food terriffic. We stayed 2 nights, but had 4... More

Was extremely unsure of what I wanted in a ranch experience. I researched everything and just about every ranch in Texas The Dixie Dude ranch has everything you could want and more. Southern hospitality at it's best. We arrived and were greeted by not only some of the kindest staff you could ever imagine but by guests that were (on... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2013. I was travelling with my son and a friend and her son. We stayed in Rebel/Yank which are two ranches with an adjoining door. The rooms were spacious and clean. We loved the view from the pool. The hills of Bandera! I have to say we had the most amazing time... More

What a wonderful ranch! I was a solo traveler and felt so warmly received and looked after. The food was so delicious and I absolutely loved the big lounge area. Two horse rides a day was great. Would been great for the horse rides to be at a bit faster tempo, but because the nature of the ranch is so... More

Very friendly staff and there are loads of options that you can get involved in. Fishing, horse riding, relaxing by the pool. A great place for a short break, I wouldnt stay longer than 3 days though as you will start to repeat yourself. The one disappointment was that as I was traveling with my girlfriend it was difficult to... More

Our family had five nights at the Dixie Dude Ranch in August. The horse riding was very tame but the rest of the activities made up for it. The kids loved the pool, the after dinner entertainment and the kittens in the laundry. The staff were friendly and hospitable, the food was fresh and tasty with no trouble catering for... More
