Lovely Country Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, two granddaughters and I spent a perfect long weekend at Trails End Ranch. We were looking for a country get away to escape the concrete and traffic of the city, and that is exactly what we got. The home is so comfortable and they have thought of everything. Mr. Brian Desaulnier and his wife met us upon arrival and oriented us to the home and the property, including the stock pond, and just could not have been nicer or more accommodating. There is a beautiful large fire pit in the yard and conditions permitting, Mr. Desaulnier set it up and started it for us. We have stayed in quite a few home away locations and I have to say the kitchen at this home was the best equipped we have ever had. It was a joy to cook in. They have also thought of providing plenty of games in doors and out to keep folks entertained. The beds were all comfortable with wonderful linens. My favorite part may have been the beautiful porches on the front and back of the home (besides the courteous Mr. Desaulnier) My only hesitation in writing this glowing review is that when we want to go back it may be booked. This place is a gem!

Great house in a quiet, relaxed setting

  • 5 of 5

Just a wonderful big old country home with everything you need to relax and connect up with family, co-workers, friends, or whatever.

I'll be booking again for our next company gathering, and also for a big family reunion. It's a perfect setting with ton's of rural Texas charm. THe Red Rock steakhouse and saloon down the road was also great for dinner. Red Rock is one of those quiet hidden jems in Central Texas.

The property was well maintained and clean. The owner (and his staff) were available and easy to work with.

Peace AND Quiet

  • 4 of 5

My whole family enjoys our summer vacations as a week of just "getting away" for some peace and quiet. We found the Trails End Ranch to be a quiet and peaceful place in the country where we could sleep late, relax comfortably and enjoy peaceably. The large house was quite pleasant and the owners were nearby and attended well to our needs. The property is away from city lights, road noise, and other encroachments of the city life, yet is just 15 -20 minutes away from just about any convenience you could desire, and less than a hour away from the Capitol of Texas.

The porches, patios, sun porch, and country setting made for pleasurable sitting, relaxing, and visiting through the morning hours and in the twilight and early evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Trails End Ranch and working with the owners and managers of the property. We recommend it for quiet getaways and restful vacations.

Great Spacious Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I had my wedding that weekend just down the road, and even though it rained, it was a good time. The house was great and had a nice/fun rustic feeling to it. All the doors were locked via door code for privacy and easement. Sheryl was very helpful and even supplied my guests with a small breakfast as well refreshments. Good place for a family getaway, or even a guys weekend, as there was a poker and pool table. The beds were wonderful and would recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect Ranch getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Sheryl and Jerry were wonderful in setting up our stay at the ranch, and constantly were available to answer any questions. Any single issue - and there were none of any importance - was resolved immediately. The property is extremely tidy, clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked, the outdoor areas are very comfortable (even in the heat of the lingering Texas fall) and the bedrooms are well appointed This is perfect for company retreats or family getaways. We will definitely be booking with Trail's End again.
