Ten Bits Ranch is certainly "off the beaten path", being 2 miles off the paved highway via a gravel/dirt road, but that only adds to its attractiveness. Rooms a well appointed and being in "The Old Schoolhouse" room we had a west facing sitting porch to admire the desert mountain sunsets. Breakfast was delicious. TBR is very remote and not... More

We were totally surprised by this place. It was very cool and we loved the rugged terrain, with huge rock formations all around. This grouping of cabins was well away from the touristy areas, and incredibly quiet all day (off the grid, so, no tvs, etc), It was absolutely beautiful under the full moon. We have never stayed anywhere that... More

This is simply the best location in the area - it's breathtaking and a real experience. The cabins are built in a superb funky yet authentic style. And the owners Jennifer and Steve offer just the right balance of friendly help and laissez faire. This is "off the grid "at its best. And if you want a camp fire just... More

I don't think you'll ever stay anywhere like Ten Bits. The pictures on their website don't do the breathtaking scenery justice - it's truly superb and worth being a bit of a drive down a well-maintained dirt road. The rooms are in themed cabins that are perfectly decorated to the ranch theme. Ours, the Guns 'shop', was flawlessly clean and... More

Ten Bits Ranch is very well located for several days of exploration in Big Bend National Park. Our room was spotless and decor was ranch chic cute. Beds were comfortable. We slept like logs - so quiet! Don't miss the nighttime stars, we were able to see the Milky Way. Jen had a delicious hot breakfast ready for us promptly... More

We had a great visit to Ten Bits Ranch in early March. This B&B is truly "off the grid." So if you are looking for a peaceful and remote place to stay, this is the place. The facility offers four rooms each with spectacular views. The rooms are large and well maintained with an old west feel. Each room has... More

Things have changed. The place is up for sale. The owners are no longer on premise, and it appears to be managed in their absence. The management is very responsive to requests, but it no longer lives up to its sterling reviews of the past. There is no breakfast. There are no tours by the owners. There are no campfire... More

We're sorry that our ammenities were not the same as tthose offered during this guest's previous holiday with us. Unfortunately, due to family issues, my wife and I had to temporarily relocate to another state. Therefore, during that time, we had arranged to keep the facility open as a vacation rental by owner. However, as of February 1st, we have... More

We found this western ranch online. We arrived after a full day of travel to the most spectacular destination. No wifi- and our 3 teenagers could have cared less! The archeological dig tour was amazing- real dinosaur bones and Indian history-to the 5 star meals and amazing bonfire to star gazing, and three days of horse back riding. We've been... More

I just got back from the Big Bend. I have such attachment to that place I try to go at least twice a year. And every time I go, my first choice for accommodations is Ten Bits. I am absolutely hooked on this B&B. Never NEVER in my eight years of going there did I have an unpleasant experience. Yes... More

After tent camping in the state park for 5 days, my wife and I took the beautiful drive to Ten Bits Ranch to refresh for a few nights. What a great decision! We found Ten Bits to be as accommodating as it was scenic. Jennifer and Steve, the proprietors, are as knowledgeable as they are friendly and we felt like... More
