Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you very much for letting us use the ranch for the family reunion. we enjoyed every minute at the ranch. We miss the big house, the bunkhouse, the water, hills, animals, rocks..... . Eric was very friendly and helpful.

We are all seniors, ages from 62 to 100, we do not know when we’ll be together next time, what we will look like.... and mother... if we do get together next time. So, every second was extremely precious to us.

Five Stars Ain't Enough!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was, without question, the best river trip our family has ever been on. We had 6 families, with children ranging from 18 months to 9 years old, and there was plenty of room to spare in the palatial home. Best of all, of course, was the river. Living Waters River Ranch sits on the most perfect stretch of Nueces River that the Good Lord created. Right down from the house is a crystal-clear, fifteen-plus foot deep, slow-moving oasis at least a quarter-mile long. There is a short, gentle "rapid" upstream and downstream where the older kids could test their mettle, but the deep swimming hole where we spent most of our time was gentle enough for our 3-year old to swim happily without any effort. Our entire group has been going to the Frio together since we were all kids - everyone agreed that the crowdless Nueces is on another level. Can't recommend this place enough, we will certainly be back next summer (and the next, and the next, and the next).

Such a wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a blast and loved being surrounded by the beautiful land and water. It was such a beautiful ranch and we loved getting to wonder around the grounds and enjoy the beautiful home.

Great family get together -quiet spot in the river

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, quite setting on private riverfront property on the Nueces River. Large ranch home with private sleeping areas for large group. Fully stocked gormet kitchen with plenary of room for multiple cooks.

Although the river was lower than last year we were able to take an hour float with multiple rapids areas and deep waters for scuba explorations.

Exotic animals could be viewed early mornings s late afternoons.

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This place was truly the perfect spot for our family reunion. We really enjoyed not only the size and layout of the house but also the surrounding scenery. The property had quite the diversity of plants, animals and terrain. An added bonus was having use of a golf cart by which to explore the property. A short hike down the stairs from the backyard was our own private swimming hole on the beautiful, clear Nueces River. Can't say enough about Eric, the ranch foreman, who helped make our stay problem free. Will definitely plan on staying here again in the future.
