We thoroughly enjoyed the awesome pool, huge deck, hot tub, and vast acerage. We hiked, played disc golf and brought our 4-square stuff to play at the tennis courts, so there were enough things for everyone to do. The kitchen was well-stocked, with two refrigerators. The house had so much character, mixed with modern amenities. Rick, the wonderful ranch foreman, took time to show us their herd of buffalo and was genuinely interested in helping us have the best time while there; Lauren was an outstanding host who was concerned with our comfort and well-being. We couldn't have dreamed up a better place to hold our reunion!
We rented Longhorn River Ranch for my bridal party and pastor's family. The ranch was such a nice, peaceful retreat from the normal stress of the wedding. My goddaughter and pastor's children LOVED the grounds and enjoyed seeing all the different animals; their joy alone made this place worth every dollar. The staff was super accommodating and it was truly a pleasure working with them. Everything was clean and the pictures on the site are very accurate...although no picture could convey the true beauty of this ranch. Highly recommend this ranch and hope to visit again soon myself!
To say we had a great time is a major understatement. Everything was perfect and your associates were awesome. Everyone truly enjoyed themselves. Whether we were admiring the animals, soaking in the hot tub, taking long walks, or sitting by the outdoor fire place, everyone made lasting memories.
We found the place to be clean and well maintained and your staff were very accommodating.
Clay was wonderful and there every time we needed something whether it was a jeep tour, a skeet shoot or just in need of light bulbs. He is a good guy, laid back, and always willing to lend a hand with a smile. Jesse your outfitter was very polite and treated us like family. He is a humble man and he made all of us feel good just hunting with him.
We had a large group of all ages both male and female and everyone was in love with the place. Some of our guests were so impressed that they may be planning their family reunion at the Hudson Homestead instead of the golf course they usually use.
Thank you so much. You have a fine operation and I hope to return one day.
Our extended family had a wonderful weekend at the Ranch celebrating a 60th anniversary! The house is a charming, rustic ranch home with a bunkhouse that easily accomodates large families. By the end of the weekend we were just in love with the property! My father-in-law has been telling everyone who will listen about this amazing place :) We were looking for a place that we could all gather and visit (unlike a hotel)....and this it it! The deck is HUGE, the pool is awesome, and we all gathered around the outdoor fireplace after dark. The wildlife were very entertaining too. The ranch foreman, Clay, was super friendly and attentive! We would LOVE to come back again...and Papaw would like to visit monthly :) Thank you for sharing this wonderful homeplace with us!
From start to finish, our time at Longhorn River Ranch was amazing. Marisol and Clay are two great people to work with and made everything easy and wonderful. Not only did 30 friends and family thoroughly enjoy their weekend stay, but each and every guest at our wedding were completely in awe with the views, grounds, and lodging. We had the perfect day for the perfect wedding "in the trees." Granted, this is the 3rd time we have been here, so I may be biased but I can definitely say that we will be back. As well as many of our guests. We actually had another couple say they wanted to hold their wedding there as well!! You will not be disappointed. Everything was wonderful!! A++++++
My family (wife and a toddler and infant) and 4 other families (each with a toddler) spent a weekend at the ranch recently and were ecstatic with the property. The kids had a blast on tire swings, a pool that is great for young kids (very shallow, shallow end), animals to watch from the deck, streams to play in and sport courts for games. The ranch is very private, and the lodge is comfortable. It took us about 45 minutes to get there from Austin, and there are grocery stores and good places to eat within 20 minutes. The foreman was nice enough to let our kids pet the horses, and helped us with the grill as well.
All in all, a great weekend!
