The ranch is very beautiful and the accommodation is basic but in keeping. Unfortunately it is far from a 'working' ranch and the horse riding was disappointing. The wrangler was grumpy and wouldn't even allow me to stroke the horse I was about to ride! Meals were rushed and very basic. The chicken barbecue consisted of pre cooked chicken pieces... More

We were back on the Dixie Dude Ranch this year for a week, for the 2nd year in a row, and we will definately be back again. The people there are so friendly and sweet - home away from home is no lie. The meals are served in the main house where you sit at long tables and therefor also... More

We visited Dixie over the Labor Day weekend. Food was excellent. Accommodation basic - no thrills. Host was friendly and engaging. Plenty to do and see. The fact that the price per night include two horse rides and three square meals (except Sunday dinner), made this a very affordable and fun experience.

I booked a 4-night stay at Dixie Dude Ranch as it wasn't too far from the Alamo, a "must see" for my husband. It was all we imagined; relaxed and comfortable. There were excellent activities arranged in the evening, which we thoroughly enjoyed not to mention the scenic horse rides, walks around the local township of Bandera, fishing, reading etc.... More

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

The ideal location to get away from it all and enjoy leisurely horse rides in beautiful location. The Ranch has a friendly atmosphere and guests are made to feel at home in a relaxed environment. 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

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...
