“A Texas Hill Country Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

If you are looking for a great place to stay, this is it. The cabin is great hide a way to stay in. You will be amazed at the wildlife you can see while sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch. Whitetail deer roaming through the trees, the goats and longhorn cattle grazing while rocking the afternoon away. Sitting in the hot tub gets you so relaxed, you just do not what to get out. Ms. Jo is the sweetest lady that you would want to meet. She takes the time to tell you the story of the ranch and all the things that you can do while you are there. She makes sure that you have everything you need to make you stay one to remember. Do not let this gem of a place to stay pass you by if you are in the area.

My husband and I just spent the weekend at the Rockin' MJ Ranch in Canyon Lake, Texas. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay that is just a short drive from many area attractions, this is the place for you. Jo is the most delightful lady and a wonderful host. She greeted us with homemade squash bread and lots of history about the ranch. There are two guestrooms with king size beds, private baths, and a futon if you need extra sleeping space. A shared kitchen separates the two rooms and is equipped with everything you need - microwave, coffee pot, sink, toaster, full sized refrigerater/freezer stocked with drinks, snacks and breakfast foods. Full porches with rockers and chairs are on both sides, with a large hot tub on the back porch. The place is immaculate both inside and out. We enjoyed sitting outside, watching the wildlife, listening to the crickets and gazing at the stars. The rooms have cable TV, but we never even turned it on because the beauty of nature was all we needed for entertainment! We will definitely stay here again the next time we make a trip to the Texas Hill Country.

The B & B is meticulously maintained, and the ranch is so pretty. We really enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, climbing Old Baldy, and seeing the deer, goats and donkeys. We will definitely stay here next time we are in the New Braunsfels/Gruene area.

This is the second time my friends and I have stayed at the Rocking MJ and as the previous review states, the website doesn't do it justice!! Ms. Jo is one of the sweetest ladies to ever open up a B&B and her hospitality is one of a kind! From the fresh baked zucchini bread and cinnamon rolls, to the rolling beautiful hills on the property, to the longhorn/goats/white-tailed deer and more, this B&B is the best! There are only two rooms in the little ranch house with a common kitchenette and I recommend to rent both sides and have a great time! There's also a hot tub in the back that, surprisingly, isn't that bad even in the 100 degree heat at night! Not to mention the rocking chairs on the porch that overlook the beautiful scenery! This is the perfect place for either a girls getaway to tube the river as we did or for a romantic getaway or simply a place to go and relax with the family. After a long day on the river or hanging out at Schlitterbahn this is the best place to go back to and relax all by yourselves! And as for cleanliness, you will NOT find a place that is cleaner than this other than your own home...and I'm willing to bet your own home won't be cleaner! And the price is unbeatable!

The website for the Rocking MJ Ranch doesn't do it justice! It's cool, clean, and well appointed will all things Texas. The two big bedrooms with bathroom (shower only) are separated by a large self-service kitchen / dinning area stocked with everthing you need for breakfast, a cool drink while enjoying the sunset or a full bar-b-que in the back yard. There are back and front porches, a hot tub, deer feeding in the beautifully maintained cedars, and the friendly owners Moe & Jo. A place to return to!
