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

We visited the Silver Spur in March during spring break and had a wonderful time! We rode horses, went on hay rides to see the longhorns, hiked to the fossil pit to dig for fossils, gathered eggs from the hen house, pet the donkeys and goats, made smores around a camp fire, and had wonderful meals. We went for two... More

My son and I were visiting Texas on business from UK and decided to have a bit of R&R and dad son bonding. We both live full on busy lives with very little time to ourselves, So a visit to a dude ranch seemed a good way to pass the week end. Well we had a ball, a great welcome... More

My family and I have visited Silver Spur several times now. My kids are now 9 and 12 and LOVE this place. The staff is warm and friendly, food is good and plenty, the rides are comfortable for the kids. I love that we can all "unplug" from our phones and computers and enjoy old-fashioned family fun. Ranch house is... More
