We visited this ranch, along with about 5 others in the area, in November 2012 and decided to book a few days at Running R around the Christmas holidays this year (2013). (We’re a family of four [2 small kids) from Washington State traveling to Austin for Christmas with relatives) We were at Running R during a slow time just... More

We stayed at the Running R Ranch November 24-27, 2013. I think it is funny how our experience was so different from another reviewer who was there at the same time, but that could be because they left the ranch every day. Anyway I can't say enough about the staff as they were great, they are all very friendly and... More

At Running-R you are running away from the rat race of the city. It is a very peaceful place. It was just what the doctor ordered. The scenic view was breathtaking. The horse back riding was amazing. Everything is kept very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The staff always had warm smiles on their faces. I could not believe such a... More

I went with my husband to this ranch! It was a good experience, especially the horse part. Even though the experience was good but we think that the price was expensive for the level of the ranch. We paid 100$ per person and per night and of course it doesn't include any other activities! When you pay this amount of... More

We stayed 3 days in the ranch and it was a wonderful cowboy experience! Ride horses, firecamp,... The children could take care of the horses, play all around the ranch, swim in the pool,... It was a great stay, relaxing and fun for all family members. The cabins are a little rustic but it is overall a very nice ranch... More

My husband and I always wanted to ride horses. Chris took us out on the trails in a group of 7 and it was wonderful. We enjoyed every minture of the ride. Chris even took the time to take our picture at the top of the trail since we were celebrating our 20th year anniversary. The horses were so gentle... More

My family and I came here to the ranch at the beginning of the year and fell in love. Doug was the greatest and took care of us like family. Well it's not the same now none of the people are there anymore. One of the workers started that the owner made the changes. Well I tell you this we... More
