          Very Wecoming staff. Owner was also onsite and very friendly. All the conveniences of a regular hotel combined with great Texas adventure. Horseback riding, feeding the cattle, campfire. Goats, pig and donkeys. Additionally, the food was delicious.

          I did the full day at the ranch, not overnight, and it included two rides and two meals.
