We loved everything about this place! We stayed there for 4 days. The place is very serene, picturesque and fun. We rode horses twice per day (it was my first time and it was fantastic), the areas we rode through were gorgeous and our cowboy and cowgirl were very entertaining. Lots of laughs along the way. The food was home... More

Meals are generous and taken in a friendly dining room where guest are encouraged to meet and get to know each other. Highly recommended if... More

First dude ranch experience and the whole time was magical. The staff is naturally friendly, the food is great and plentiful, the surroundings are beautiful, the horse rides are amazing, the entertainment is festive, the pond with frogs was fun, the rooms are comfortable and the swimming pool refreshing. I went with my 10 year old daughter who really likes... More

I took my boyfriend on a tour of some of the best parts of Texas as he is originally from Michigan. I wanted to introduce him to the cowboy side of the state and decided that a dude ranch in Bandera was the way to go. I chose Dixie Dude Ranch and was beyond satisfied with my decision! This is...

Three years ago My husband and I wanted to do something different on our summer vacation. We chose Dixie Dude Ranch based on location and affordability. Little did we know it would soon be our "home away from home!" The staff, the food, the other guests are fantastic! You get two hour long trail rides each day; you can hike... More

This place had an amazing staff. It was well-kept there was plenty to keep the kids occupied. My daughter fell love with the horses and my little boy just got dirty every time we turned around all in all a great experience would definitely recommend this for any family who enjoys horses in the outdoors

This is a peaceful and relaxing place for adults and kids (10 + 14). We got a simple, but large, cozy and clean room connected to the main house. All the meals were really good, and we were placed at a table with another family - very social and fun. The kids could play, go fishing, and there were 2... More
