What a lovely respite from the city. Not only is it peaceful and scenic but the Lodge itself feels as if you've been invited as house guest to a lovely period home. For excitement we saw the Bandera Labor Day Parade, we've never seen Long Horned cattle come down Main Street. Thank you and we'll be back.
