Accommodated our 28 family members well!

  • 5 of 5

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!

All About the Scenery

  • 5 of 5

OK, so I know Texas is not Washington State or Oregon or anyplace like that, but this is about as close as it comes. I've stayed at lots of places around this great state and this is the most scenic I've seen. The river that runs through the property is like something you'd see in a postcard and the pics on this site do not do it justice. The "mountains" are beautiful and whatever you do, DEFINITELY take a drive through them so you can see the animals and the amazing views. The main house and bunk house are OK - kind of old and some odd features, but not bad. The pool, deck, and outdoor fireplace are really nice and the outdoor basketball court is as good as any you will see. Plenty of amenities to make your stay comfortable when you are "stuck" inside. Cleaning supplies were a little sparse so recommend you bring your own. Otherwise a fabulous property that you'll thoroughly enjoy.

Longhorn River Ranch

Great customer service, the property was clean and beautiful covered by nature. We went for Thanksgiving family vacation and everyone in the family had a great time and didn’t get enough of everything. The place is gorgeous.

Great venue for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We had a small wedding (80 people) poolside at the main house. We rented out all 4 homes on the ranch for our guests as many were coming in from out of town. It was the perfect weekend and all our guests had a blast. We would definitely rent the ranch again. The exotic animals and the scenic property gave us the perfect setting for our wedding, and especially our photos. Pool, hot tub, frisbee golf, fishing, etc.. our guests enjoyed everything.

Clay is the ranch manager, and he was awesome. Anytime we needed something he always responded instantly. Great service!

We will be back!
