“Awesome, relaxing weekend!”

Spotted Pony Ranch is such a neat, quiet B&B. We stayed in the western cabin. it was very clean and the decor was well suited. Patricia makes sure that all your requests are met....can't wait to go back!

We stayed one night in the Western cabin at Spotted Pony Ranch and did not want to leave! It was very relaxing and fun. We enjoyed socializing with the horses on the ranch, who were very friendly. The cabin was very nice and hot tub would be great on a cooler night! We set up a ride through the B&B owners and Kathy took us on a great trailride for a couple of hours in the morning. Patricia even let us check out late so that we could come back and shower and get our puppies after the ride. They are pet friendly here and our dogs loved chasing the ball in the large expanse of land! We would recommend this B&B highly to others and will likely return ourselves! Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention the relaxing tree swing for 2 and star gazing at night...amazing! Patricia said many engagements have occured on that swing :)

I found Spotted Pony Ranch while searching for B&B in Fredericksburg. My now- fiance and I were looking for a weekend get away out of Austin TX.

This ranch is just outside Fredericksburg - maybe a 5 - 10 minute drive in to Main street. I loved that we were not in downtown for the whole trip and could escape to the country each night. Patricia has 3 cute cabins on her ranch. We stayed in the Fiesta Casita which is their newest. There is a jacuzzi tub (and a shower which is nice) and all the amenities we needed for a weekend stay. The cabin is very cozy with a king sized bed and heaters for a chilly night. There is a porch as well as a cool fire pit outside. It is very peaceful and there are many horses wandering around in pastures - absolutely no road noise. We were amazed at the amount of stars that we could see.

A delicious (and huge!) breakfast arrived each morning on time as promised. There was something for everyone in her cute baskets!

Patricia and Mitch will lead trail rides on their horses. We went to a private and beautiful ranch near Sister Creek TX. The horses were bomb-proof and the trail ride was super relaxed - just an awesome overall experience. I have been on more "commercial" trail rides and have not enjoyed them. This felt like we were just out with some good friends for an afternoon horseback ride.

We will definitely be returning to Spotted Pony Ranch!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rest up in your own cabin, make friends with the horses who hang out in the pasture a few steps away, but be ready to cowboy up to dining, dancing and shopping in the great little hill country town of Fredericksburg just 3 minutes away! We’re on 34 acres, most of which is pasture that our ponies share with the local deer who visit us at twilight and into the evening hours.Our B&B cabins are comfy and are available nightly, for a few days or weekly stays. A cup of coffee in the morning out on the porch while you’re enjoying your breakfast delivered to your doorstep as you’re watching the horses out in the pasture mosey up to get theirs or a soak in the hot tub in the evening with your choice of refreshments will be a delightful highlight of your day. ... more   less
