We went to the Silver Spur for the day, lunch, a trail ride, swimming, chilling, hay wagon ride and campfire !!! An absolutely fabulous day !! We wished we had stayed over. The lodge is clean, drinks and goodies available all day. Lunch and dinner were very good. We certainly didn't go hungry....The trail ride was interesting with Jay having... More

I cannot express how wonderful my week long wellness retreat at the Silver Spur Ranch was. From the moment I arrived I was enveloped in the scenery of the ranch, and the genuine hospitality and care of all the staff. From the trail ride through the hill country in the morning, to the treatments experienced as part of the Wellness... More

I visited the Silver Spur with my family and we had a great time. Pros: The food was great- everybody in my party loved the food. It is home cooking, not fancy stuff, but it tasted great and the portions were sizeable. The staff- all of the staff members were very friendly and welcoming. Family friendliness- We were traveling with... More

We've been to Silver Spur 4 times, and each time has been great. I enjoy the horse rides, hiking the trails, feeding the longhorns, and just relaxing and taking in the nice views. The food is good and the always available baked goods are a plus. I like the smores by the fire at night and looking up at the... More

This was my second time in Bandera, I've stayed in a dude ranch each timem, and this is my favorite. Food: The best way to explain the food is that it's similar in quality to what I'd make back home. Breakfast: eggs, bacon/sausage, french toast/pancakes. Lunch: tacos, enchiladas, beans. Dinner: brisket, meatloaf, sausage, beans, and "house salads." They have a... More

PROS: Accommodated our dietary restrictions which is unusual for a dude ranch. Multiple beautiful horse trails. Great petting animals for the kids especially the donkeys. Nice quiet cabins with porches. Jay is a great welcoming manager. CONS: Grumpy wrangler. The bigger horses are stubborn and can be aggressive. No shampoo in cabins (?). Food is average at best. Our first... More

What fun!! We loved all of it - the horseback riding (first time in a LONG time), swimming, the hay ride to see the Longhorn cattle (and wild turkeys), playing pool and foosball, and the bonfire! We tucked into the delicious meals, appreciated the professional and friendly staff, and enjoyed meeting other guests. A special shout out to Bubba for... More

I chose the Silver Spur Ranch for our Dude Ranch experience based on earlier TripAdvisor reviews, and the experience exceeded all expectations. Jay, Maria, Bubba, Tom, Kidd and all the other crew members went out of their way to make our two days stay at the ranch a fun, authentic experience. In fact, we marveled at the way they made...

We took our grandchildren to the Silver spur Ranch last month. The staff was wonderful; everyone smiled and was very friendly. We were there on an "off" week, so there weren't very many people there, but the staff still did everything to make our stay enjoyable. Jay was especially friendly and helpful and seemed happy to visit with us all... More
