Bethel Ranch is conveniently located on the northeast edge of the Dallas metro area. The property is less than one hour from downtown Dallas and DFW airport. Just off the Highway 75 corridor twenty minutes north of Frisco/Mckinney area. The lodge sits on a ridge in the middle of 82 acres overlooking the lake on the south edge of the property surrounded by open fields and timber. It is a quiet secluded yet convenient location perfect for private gatherings or large events. In addition there is a large Bunkhouse that sleeps 21 comfortably. A kitchen, dining area, plus meeting space all under one roof.
We stayed in the main house for a girls weekend, and it was exactly what the doctor ordered. The house is gorgeous, and the grounds are beautiful! We spent a lot of time on the back patio and in the kitchen. I LOVE the open floor plan in the kitchen. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get away from the day to day grind and relax!! Will be staying here again on our next ladies night out!

We brought 4 wheelers for the grandchildren to ride. . . .they had a blast ! The pool was heated and the hot tub was nice too ! . . kids enjoyed the air hockey and foosball tables in the upstairs gameroom at night. . . . .it was nice for the adults to just sit in those big chairs in front of the fireplace and relax with spirits flowing . . .

I reserved this property for a bachelor party/getaway weekend of 9 guys, and the venue was exactly what we were looking for. There was more than enough room for everybody to spread out, with regard to lounging/relaxing, eating, cooking, and sleeping. There were lots of activities to keep everybody busy, including a nice theater area with lots of recliners (5 i believe) & DirecTV, table tennis, foosball, billiards, cornhole, the swimming pool, two poker tables, horseshoes, washers, and, though we never went into the building where this supposedly was, a weight lifting setup. I'm sure I am forgetting something, but the bottom line is that there was no shortage of things to do. There is also a place to do skeet/trap shooting right next to the house which includes 3 automatic clay throwers. We also had a good time fishing.
As other reviewers have mentioned, Ralph is great. Very friendly and helpful, and always very responsive too. The property owner, Clinton, was also very good to work with.
All in all, we had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend it to a friend/family member, and I will definitely consider it in the future for a similar event, or any kind of getaway/gathering, for that matter.
We took a group of 15 employees for a much deserved get-a-way. The Bethel Ranch was perfect. We had plenty of room to spread out. The guys kept the ping pong and pool tables in action every night.
Ralph provided us with a propane bottle for our fish fry, a skeet thrower for our skeet shoot, seasoned oak wood and a smoker for our barbecue and scheduled tee times at the Webb Hill Country Club for our golf tournament.. You could not find a more accommodating host than Ralph Green, the resident manager.
The ranch house is very spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen is a cook's delight. Sitting on the porch with a fire blazing in the evening and watching the deer in the fields was very relaxing. The bunkhouse is the perfect place for a group to unwind, play games and visit. To say that we enjoyed our stay would be a gross understatement.
When it was time to pack and leave on Sunday, all of our guys were asking, "Can we come back here again?". The short answer to their question was "most definitely".
The property is well maintained and clean and Ralph's customer service is unparalleled.
We are looking forward to our next stay at the Bethel Ranch.
All I have to say is, RALPH. Ralph is the MAN!!!!! He was beyond accomodating and helped us with every question or concern we had. I rented the venue for my sister's bachelorette weekend. We had a BLAST. The home is beautiful and provides the perfect environment for a weekend escape. Some of the girls left items behind and Ralph went OUT of his way to mail us those items. I felt like I was in my parents' home or something like that. We were so taken care of. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Perfect for a weekend getaway. We decided to take the family out to the ranch for some fun before returning back to school. The kids enjoyed themselves, and stayed outdoors the majority of the time. They rode 4 wheelers, went on nature walks, and hung out in the pool. The adults enjoyed the peace and relaxing atmosphere. My only recommendations would be to update the furniture in the great room, as the couch has seen better days.
We stayed at the home for a family vacation with my daughters and 3 grandchildren. The property manager met us there and was very friendly and helpful. That is the extent of anything positive I have to say. As soon as we walked through the property we felt confused and disappointed. If you want the short version, we paid for a 5 star home and had a 1 star stay. The home and furnishings were not at all as pictured. The main house was supposed to sleep 18. Evidently there are at least 9 beds missing because my 2 grandsons had to sleep on air mattresses on the floor (which had holes in them) under towels because there were not any blankets provided. The master sitting room, front living room, and upstairs bunk room had no furniture at all...not at all as pictured and completely unusable. The beds that were there were cheap and hard as a rock. The home has not been maintained well. Missing stones on the fireplace, a broken toilet seat (ouch!), tubs without drain plugs, broken ice makers, bathroom doors that don't close. The views and the pool were beautiful but the pool had a crack in it so it had to be filled up daily. We had to buy pool chairs because there was no pool furniture. The furniture in the tv area was disgusting! I could have found something better on the side of the road. There was a general lack of cleanliness, beard trimmings in the sink, bugs in the tub. In fact, the bugs were a HUGE issue. I understand that it is a home in the country, but no effort was put in to controlling the bugs. Wasps, dirt daubers, crickets, and grasshoppers outside and inside the house.
The home description, photos, and the rate need a drastic change before renting to someone else.
