Texas History
Its natural to envision Texas families living on a ranch or farm.  But when a family turns it into a business, we call it a live working ranch.  Some raise stock, some lease for deer hunting.  Yet others seek leisure resorts with a guest ranch appeal.

You can find guest ranches all over this great state of Texas, but not your typical dude ranch.  "City Slickers".    In Texas, feel the pleasure of its wide demographics and be surrounded by exquisite beauty its landscape has to offer.  Its certain you and your party get the special treatment the moment you arrive.

Most guest ranches are family-owned for generations and operated to offer authentic hospitality, great meals and service, comfortable accommodations, unique features and continuous enjoyment.  In Texas, a beautiful scenic view, historic features, and and outdoor adventures await you.

Rancho Cortez.  In the heart of the hill country lies a rustic ranch offering more than just a dude ranch.  Retreats, gal-pal getaway, campfires, horse trails, hearty breakfast, western style lodging and a fitness camp to get the kinks out of your spurs.

The Mayan Ranch is full of activities but if quiet time is your cup of tea, check out the scenic beauty near the Medina River.  Enjoy hayrides, BBQ, margaritas, pinatas, western dancing, poolside time, and an assortment of cowboy entertainment.

Blisswood Ranch B&B.  We love our pets and so does Blisswood.  A pet-friendly lodge ranch setting whether its a family of two or ten, outdoor adventures or a romantic get-away.  A truly magical scenic beauty.

Picosa Ranch.  Fishing, shooting, camping , biking, hiking, trail rides, safari tour or simply just relaxing by the pool.  This experience is the ultimate luxury of the best amenities with western adventure.

Cibolo Creek Ranch.  Get comfortable in a fort.  Restored and transformed from 1857 to a luxurious accommodation, this is the place to get close to history and the heavens.  For the nature lover, step into the world way out west where you could almost touch the stars at night and be smothered by clear brisk mountain air in the morning.  Hiking, fishing, paddle boats, and a host to over 500 species of birds including bats, eagles, roadrunners, falcons, and turkey. And did we mention, its pet-friendly!

The Inn at Dos Brisas.  A charming get-away offering indoor riding arena, an organic garden, a five star dining experience, carriage rides and a historical grounds setting.

Beaumont Ranch.  A site on the Chisolm Trail, for the extreme outdoors adventurer, zip lines, atv, cattle drives, or go for the relaxation of its luxury rooms and service.  Cafe dining style or reservations for a chuck wagon meal.  Its all here for family or corporate events.

Tejano Rodeo: Rodeo is Texas heritage. As Texas is made up of many diverse groups, since the early days of Texas, so is Texas rodeo.  One of the biggest round-ups is in San Antonio. But you can find them from El Paso to Houston and in between.

LBJ State Park and Historic Site: Not only does it include a working farm but look out for the Hereford cattle roaming freely throughout the ranch.  Learn about Lyndon B Johnson's childhood, his presidency, and his retirement through the guided tours. Dedicated park rangers committed to his legacy bring to life the historic home, life on the ranch, and the first family of the United States.
