We stayed at the Spiny Star Cabin. It had a full kitchen and sleeps about 6 people. The outside porch was lovely and was equipped with a grill. The Live Oak Lodge was right in front, so we went there and played some lawn games as well. This is perfect for a weekend getaway. The Lodge was super easy to miss so keep an eye out for the sign. It was super quiet and peaceful and we could see all the stars at night. This place was 15-20 mins away from the Caverns of Sonora which was beautiful. The sweet lady i talked to over the phone Kristi was super helpful and very nice. She helped us with random questions to booking the places etc., Overall if you're looking for a nice disconnect from the busy city life - this was it. A couple of suggestions however: Trail maps need to be updated. Map shows 3-4 trails but only one of them is active. The hot/cold water buttons in the shower in Spiny Star Cabin was oppositely named. So if you wanted cold water you'd turn it to the hot water knob.

If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all, it doesn’t get much better than the X Bar ranch. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the star cluttered sky is a gem to gaze at in this part of Texas. The main lodge is charming as can be, as are the cabins. Christy, who helped arrange out reservation, coordinated everything with excellence, and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this place.

The tranquility and peace: calm was amazing: I wrote a more detailed review on yelp.com! Please check it out because I should have copied and pasted the info.. An amazingly isolated/ tranquil and peaceful retreat. X bar is not for the faint of heart ..I absolutely loved the round house and will be back. It’s challenging to find/ a small sign off the main yet is difficult to see and you must travel miles off the main road to get to the house but it makes it such an adventure.. “I love yous” echo in the walls . I will definitely be back

Our family of 2 couples stayed in the Round House for two nights at the end of our Davis Mountains vacation. The house was very comfortable and the view was magnificent. The Round House is separated from the main lodge by several minutes of driving. We did check out the main lodge and pool and they were very inviting. The night sky was incredible if you enjoy stargazing. Awesome AC (important in Texas), and there was decent wifi and satellite TV. If you enjoy the peace and quiet of the Texas hill country and are hoping to escape crowds and traffic - this is a great place to stay. Kristy was very helpful with the reservations!

We stayed at the X Bar Ranch on a family road trip. It was conveniently located to the Caverns of Sonora. We stayed in the Spiny Star cabin. It was spacious and filled with amenities. I enjoyed sitting on the deck and drinking coffee as the sun came up. We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to return.
