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

A great place to get away and experience nature. It's your choice to get away from the phone, computer, and rush of every day life. The Round House was beautiful and so well designed. This house sits alone in the center of ranch land with no one else around so if your wanting to experience the country living this is... More

If you want to be physically comfortable out in the countryside and yearn for quiet and beautiful starry nites, XBar Ranch is the place. I felt more like I was at a friend's vacation home than at a business, not in small part due to the pleasant greeting from Christy, mother of the owner. When I was there, I had... More

We stayed for 3 days for a West Texas family reunion. It is only about an hour drive from San Angelo, TX where many family members live so it was a perfect location. It is far from stores and gas so be sure to fill up and bring what you need to avoid too much extra driving. The area is... More

We went on a West Texas road trip for Spring Break, and found X-Bar Ranch through the Caverns of Sonora website. If you're planning a trip to the caverns, X-Bar Ranch is very convenient. It's tucked back a little bit off the highway, so that it's incredibly quiet. We arrived after normal business hours, and called the owners, who told... More

This is a long review but exceptional places deserve the time required to write about them. We took a trip to the San Angelo Texas area and intended to spend the weekend there visiting someone at Goodfellow AFB. The final decision on whether to go was only a week before the trip. I was looking for hotels in town and... More
