Spent a Sunday and Monday at X bar Ranch and had the place to ourselves. The skies were extremely dark and clear. Set up my astrophotography equipment right behind the cabin and got some great shots. The lodge was well apportioned with everything a body needs to prepare meals and relax. Clean, quiet, and tranquil. What more could you ask... More

Quiet, tranquil and awesome vistas. It was a nice get away for my wife and me on Valentine's weekend. We stayed in the Mexico Lindo cabin and we both enjoyed it. Also the best Texas night skies are included. We'll have to do this again

When we stayed at X Bar, it was SO quiet ! The cabins are nice but not luxurious, the main lodge is wonderful and spacious and comfy and has everything you could need, including GREAT porches for sitting or reading or relaxing. Breakfast should be more than packaged food, but it wasn't. Hiking the trails was easy and as scenic... More

This is a particularly great place for folks into astronomy, as they have observing fields that they keep available year round. The skies here are dark and the Milky Way shows brilliantly. I've stayed in both a cabin and at the Roundhouse. The cabins were originally built for hunters, so are compact and rustic but comfortable and situated by a... More

We really enjoyed our weekend camping under the Milky Way at X Bar Ranch. We met lots of great people, enjoyed the lodge and outdoor amenities, made great food in the well outfitted kitchen, had fun playing games on the back lawn, and appreciated the butterfly covered flower gardens. They kept everything very clean and well appointed for both cabin... More

Thanks again for the opportunity to stay at X-Bar. We were the only guests there Friday night August 15th and it was wonderful! My son and I got to swim around in the pool under the Milky Way and we had some of the best stargazing of anytime we've been there. We plan to be back very, very soon with... More

I must say that the Round House is the perfect place to get away from the city rush. My wife and I had a wonderful time, enjoying the peace and quiet of this home. This place is made for those who are looking for an escape, a place to recharge the batteries, a place where you will not be disturbed.... More

My wife and I were planning a 2 month motorcycle trip from Arizona to Key West, return. We had booked some timeshare, but in between planned to tent. My wife found X Bar on line, we discussed it, read the reviews, and booked. Stan was very accommodating with my wife, considering he already had a large group staying in the... More

My husband works a lot near El Paso and we live in Temple- X Bar Ranch will be our home away from home- allowing out family to meet regularly during his longer business trips. We chose to stay in the Round House- what an excellent choice! Our children LOVED IT! It's rustic and simply beautiful. The house was found spotless... More

We found X Bar Ranch online and decided to give it a try since it was only 3 hours away from where we live and could only do a long weekend. Our three night stay was great! We hit the mountain bike trails on Saturday with good Texas late winter weather (76 degrees) and had a great time. The trails... More
