To all who work @ Running-R Ranch?
This place is amazing...we spend Thanksgiving week at the Ranch. A cold front had come in the day we arrived. It's been cold but they had our room heated for us to feel comfortable. The team had it handle. The Views around the Hill Country are so beautiful.
Chris "The Wrangler" a storyteller by the fireplace at the main Lodge kept our spirits high. So, if you visit the Running-R Ranch ask for Chris.
Jason is the Ranch manager. He keeps the worker on schedule for horseback riding and showing the entire guest the things that are available to do during the day.
Jessie is a busy lady. She kept all of us full of food. Breakfast is 8am Central Time. Get ready because they do ring a bell for morning breakfast and lunch around 12 pm. Jessie will keep the coffee coming and cool drinks for the children. Always busy at the main lodge. Awesome Breakfast!!!
Raymond is a chef cook: He cooked our Thanksgiving Dinner...we had plenty of Turkey and dressing and gravy...mash potatoes...dinner rolls. Sweet potatoes and marshmallows and corn on Cobb. Awesome Dinner!
Thank You Raymond and Jessie
It’s best if you schedule the maids to clean your room. It’s best in our case to make sure we’re not around when cleaning your room. You don’t want to be in the way.
This Ranch has a swimming pool. Of, course we couldn't use it because of the weather. The cold front kept us from doing many things...that's is not the owner's fault. No one can control the weather. One thing I will recommend is the children are safe to play outside. It's a private Ranch and children are free to run and play until they are ready to eat and go to bed. Adults can play card games at the main lodge. It's a great place to meet new people and make new friends.
Thing to do
o Bonfire outside
o Play pool (Main Lodge)
o Bat mitten
o Table (Main Lodge to play cards)
o Croquette and much more
o Horse back riding
Our son met us at the Ranch for Thanksgiving. He enjoyed himself during his stay. He had a grand old time talking Chris and Jason and meeting everyone at the main lodge. He had an awesome experience with horseback riding.
Reservation: Ask for Haleticia (from South Africa) Awesome Lady and will place your reservation and pre-paid your cabin. Then you don't have to worry about not having a cabin to enjoy your stay. Haletiicia will take care of you with A-Service.
This Ranch is pet friendly.
Bring your pets- dogs and cats
If you get a chance visit with Arthur a Basset Hound Dog.
