We had a great time at the ranch. The owners are really nice, very welcoming, and have created an experience that is simple, comfortable, and really fun. From home cooked meals to s'mores over a campfire to hiking and horseback riding the whole experience is just great. The rooms are perfect as well - clean, comfortable, simple, and rustic. Will...

We enjoyed our one night stay at the ranch. It's not fancy and is rustic but what one would appreciate staying at a ranch. Lots of great activities for families and a hearty cowboy breakfast that was great. We would stay here again.

Wish we didn't have to leave! Our family stayed 3 nights and our 10 & 8 year old kids are insisting we come back this summer. We had a blast and spent the days and evenings playing until we dropped! Tubing, fishing, swimming, ropin, basketball, hiking and let's not forget the awesome horseback riding. One thing that makes this place...

Spending a few days at the Twin Elm was the very best way to escape the big city and get back to the country during our Spring Break from school. All of us had an amazing time -- the kids especially loved the many and varied activities of the "All Inclusive Package" including: daily trail rides (lovely horses and wranglers!),...

This RV Park is a must do if your visiting Bandera in an RV. They also have cabins/guest rooms if your not in an RV. The hospitality here is truly Texas style hospitality. Here you are family and not just a guest. The staff is awesome. The manager Kathlynn sure does make you feel right at home. We did horseback...

We took the family to Twin Elm for the first weekend of Spring Break. Upon arrival we were greeted with the most gracious hospitality we have ever experienced. As other reviewers have commented, the amenities are what you would want from a true Texas ranch getaway (Terrific Horseback riding, Campfires, Fishing on the River). But for us what made the...

You have an awesome family that was instantly loved. Your three boys were so well behaved and gracious. We look forward to having you here at "your ranch" for many more years to come. The sweet card they gave me is hanging on my bulletin board and my love turtle is on the hearth above the fireplace for all to...

To say that we enjoyed this place is an understatement. Upon arrival we were greeting with a warm welcome along with some amazing cookies. Hiking trails along a creek that feeds in to a river, tubing, a pool, horseback riding for everyone, gorgeous scenery, and a friendly are just a few things they offer. Food was great. The whole time...

After 5 minutes you do become a family member at the ranch because we want you to relax and have a good time. We appreciate the time and thoughtfulness that you put in to writing the review and we pray that you will come back soon and stay a little longer.

I'll be reserving here again! Kathlyn, pronounced "Kath Lynn" is the most friendliest hostess I've met! She makes everyone feel at home. We enjoyed home cooked breakfast and dinner. The pool is clean and big enough for a large group. Trail rides are awesome, as we crossed a creek twice. Our Apache guide told us about the rich history of...

We stayed only one night and one day but enjoyed every minute. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Kevin adapted the horseride time for us in the morning and we got to rise in tge countryside, woods and river for 1h30. Cowboy food is awesome, in particular the brisket. (thanks to the cooker). Being in the low winter season,...

We set up to have a group outing at the Twin Elm. We had about 70 people for a hayride at dusk followed by a BBQ dinner on their pavilion and an evening campfire. The hayride included a visit to a Indian tepee with an Indian in full war paint. The BBQ was some of the best I've eaten. After...
