Great place. Lots of fun activities. Great for kids and the adults. Staff extremely warm and helpful. They work constantly to make sure guests have whatever they need!! Perfect location just outside of Bandera in the Texas Hill country. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We were doing a mini tour of Texas and wanted to stay at a ranch for a night and be able to ride horses. Everyone was very kind and helpful. The Cowboys were so good with everyone from children to adults. The Cowboys leading the hayride to feed the longhorn were very informative about their history. The porch swing was... More

My friend and I went Memorial Day weekend. It's very family friendly. Our favorites were the horseback riding and the olympic size pool. The food is absolutely delicious! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided buffet style. Great country cooking with homemade desserts. Beer and wine are available by donation. It rained while we were there, but they still went ahead... More

This was my first stay at a Dude Ranch and I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a setting where I could relax in a swing, enjoy the long-horns and other animals, eat great food, hike along scenic trails, shoot some pool with friends, visit the local honky tonk, talk around a campfire, and sleep very soundly....

The wranglers at the ranch where great and took care of the riders. Don and Justin where very attuned to watch out for the riders and equipment was fitted to each. Great having them along. While the sleeping was not good, beds where lumpy and we had 5 in the room to choose from and all where bad. We ended... More

My daughter and I had a great trip. We enjoyed the cowboy breakfast a lot. My daughter really liked the horses. It was the first time my daughter had ridden a horse without someone holding the reins and she did very good.

This was a great experience for us - we stayed one night, and it was not very crowded at all, so it was very laid back. The food was the most delicious food we had on our trip and, I might say, the fish was probably the best fish I ever had. It was great meeting the wranglers and hearing... More

We are from the east coast and really wanted to give our kids a sense of the south west. This stop included horseback riding, which was doable even for my beginning riders. We then hung out in the lodge and played games until the hayride. The hayride included a close-up experience with longhorns, some story telling and a ride through... More

Silver Spur is in a great location with some beautiful views, longhorns and other livestock. We enjoyed horseback rides in the late afternoon and morning, as well as the hay ride to the nearby State Natural Area and the campfire at night.

Silver Spurs was better than I expected! A real western family vacation. Three adults and six children were in our party and each of us didn't want to leave.
