My wife and I spent a couple of nights at the Silver Spur in March. We wanted to get a bit of Texas countryside experience and we're really glad that we chose the Silver Spur.
Right from the start the everyone made us feel at ease and welcome. It's a family business and everyone is involved. It's nice that there never felt as if there was a barrier between the staff and guests - you're treated as if you're staying with friends.
While we were there we got plenty of horse riding (really just pony trekking for us, as we're beginners), there was a country musician playing round the camp fire one evening, a cowboy breakfast, hay rides to see the longhorn cattle (very long-horned), horse shoes, trying to lasso targets, a trick roper doing some amazing stuff... you get the idea - there's lots to do.
We were there during spring break, and despite being told that they were really busy, it never felt as if it was. The place is spacious and since there are lots of things to do it was always comfortable for us.
The food was home cooked and done to a good standard. We enjoyed it and felt it was a genuine reflection of good Texan cooking.
One evening we went to see "Mutton Busting" at a nearby ranch. If you hear that it's on while you're there, it's worth a trip out to see.
All in all, we had a great time and are really glad that we chose the Silver Spur. Thanks to Gary, Jay, Kay, Patti, Robert and everyone for making us so welcome. It was a special part of our trip.
We stayed in the Wyatt Earp room - it's a very nice room
