My buddy and I stayed at Twin Elms for 3 days and absolutely loved it! Kathlyn, Cade and the other staff are the best and most welcoming hosts I have ever experienced.

If you are looking for a quiet little get away, with tubing, horseback riding and star gazing. This is a great place for you. Located just outside of Bandera on the Medina River. They'll show you a great time and feed ya! The cozy rooms take you back to old west.

Twin Elm Guest Ranch is an amazing place for a family. Perfect for our large family wedding. We loved the bunk houses and the rooms and beds were so comfortable. The pool was perfect and the owners were wonderful. We went tubing and horse back riding - all available on site. The breakfast was fantastic!! We will definitely be back!

I know there is a lot more to this place than just horseback riding but we had already booked another B&B so we just went for the horses. A few places only let overnight guests ride their horses but Twin Elm let us just come in and pay to ride for an hour. It was a lot of fun and... More

To celebrate a birthday and anniversary, our grown children and grandchildren, age 4 and 8, joined us at Twin Elm. Twenty-five years ago we had taken our then-young children there. To me it felt like going back in time, when things were slower and friendlier. All the staff were very accomodating, including Dede and Jennie on the phones. Kathlyn and... More
