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

Late with this review (as we stayed in 2011) but thought it was about time I started providing information instead of just asking for it and this is a great place to start. It's north of Terlingua but there was still easy access to both town and the National Park. We stayed in the Lehman Academy schoolhouse, named after a... More

When we mentioned to a friend that we were headed for the Big Bend National Park in West Texas, he urged us to stay at the Ten Bits Ranch. It is located a few miles north of Terlinqua Texas on highway 118 and just west of the Madison Park Enterance. We took his advice and were very pleased with our... More

If you ever were out in the desert and saw a cabin in the distance and wished you could stay there and watch the stars some night, this is just the place. We expected to arrive early in the day and arranged a tour with Jennifer (who with her husband Steve owns ten bits). We were unavoidably late but we... More

Jennifer and Steve run a unique operation that our family enjoyed between Christmas and New Year's Day. What is most impressive to me is that they have managed to extract the best parts of camping (the stars, the campfire, the wilderness) while at the same time providing the civilized luxuries that my wife demands and I appreciate (warm comfortable bed,...

This is my first Tripadvisor review but I had such an unpleasant experience after booking at Ten Bits Ranch that I wanted to record it here. I booked (about two mths in advance) for 2 nights during the Thanksgiving week for my family - my husband and I and our three small children (aged 6, 4 and 2). I was... More

Tenbitsranch, Owner at Ten Bits Ranch, responded to this review

First off, we have a strict cancellation policy because we are a small inn (4 rooms total), not a corporate property. When we take a booking we are committed to honoring it. In fact, just after taking this reviewer’s high-season reservation, another larger party wanted to book our entire facility, however we turned them down (as well as a lot... More

The Ten Bits Ranch was a perfect place to stay while on vacation in a place like the Big Bend. The service provided by Jennifer was excellent. She was available when needed and in the back ground when not. The knowledge and experience that Jennifer and Steve can offer about the area is worth the price. Thanks for a great... More
