Spring roundup 2015. This is the real deal people. This is no dude ranch. Let me be blunt, this place is not for everyone. If you need structured activities, daily maid service, luxury amenities and spa services.....well keep on riding on. This place has something better, it has true warmth! You are welcomed to the ranch and treated like family,... More

This was our third round-up at the Lazy F Ranch in 18 months and each time it gets better and better. My only reluctance in writing this review is that I dont want to encourage too many people to go as we'd like to keep this place all to ourselves. We have made some terrific friends including locals, cowboys and... More

We visited the Lazy F ranch for a weekend getaway. We had wonderful, individualized tours of the ranch both by horseback and by truck. Clay and his staff were incredibly accomodating to any of our wishes. His stable was well-kept, and horses were appropriate for any level rider. The ranch itself is beautiful, with lakes and creeks, turkeys, deer, and... More

I stayed twice at the Lazy F and I had both times a great time! The Ranch is simply beautiful. There is nothing I would have missed during my stay. If you are staying for Round up you are going to work with real cowboys they do that for their living 365 days a year. They will gladly show you... More

If you want a real cowboy ranch experience the Lazy F at Round Up time is the only place out there. I can only speak to the Round Up experience but here it is... You will ride with real cowboys who do this everyday of their lives. You will eat some of the best Texas comfort food there is. You... More

I've rated the Lazy F excellent for everything apart from value only because this is a review to help people decide what sort of holiday they want and the prices asked by ranches (and NOT just this one) work out pricey for ordinary folk who just want somewhere comfortable, but not luxurious, to have a genuine no-frills experience. But this... More

We found this hotel via Internet and thought it would be a good place to get the real 'ranch' experience. Well we got some kind of an experience that's for sure. We arrived early afternoon and checked into our room at the main house. Very seventies and a bit rundown, no locks on the doors, but still no problem -... More
