Country Hospitality

We were welcomed wholeheartedly. The hosts we’re good to us and gave us of ideas of things that we could do in the different areas around them. Country living is a very quiet way of camping.

Country Hospitality

We highly rate this host. They welcomed us and were very sociable. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. They are a little bit out in the country, but it is well worth it as you will have a quiet stay. They gave us ideas of things that we could do in the surrounding areas and was very helpful.

Worth the drive!

We were warmly welcomed by our hosts. They have a beautiful location with electric and water available. Wish we could have stayed longer. Sorry this review is late.

Quiet

If you're looking for some peace and quiet this is the place! A little off the beaten path, but well worth the somewhat bumpy drive. Enjoyed our evening sipping tea in the rockers on the patio! Very accommodating hosts.

Texan hospitality

They were very welcoming hosts and enjoyable to talk to. He consistently checked in with us to see if there was any way they could help or get us more settled in. It was peaceful to walk around on their property and, of course, see the dozens of interesting birds gathered at their bird feeders.

We hope to be able to come and see them again!

They set the bar high for hosts

D&G were great hosts and the ranch is perfect for unplugging for a while. I hiked trails for hours and fell in love with the place! Great conversations and a tour of the place. They offered to let me plug in to power and had me park under a cover so my rig was sheltered from the storm. No WiFi and my T-Mobile/metro pcs phone doesn’t work here but it was good to “unplug and reset” I hope to come back next time I’m in the area.

Wonderfully peaceful refuge in Texas

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about RDirby and his wife. They provided us with a beautiful and quiet place to stay for the evening. The property has lots of birds and other wildlife, views of the evening sky, and great company. RDirby was kind enough to spend some time and chat with us about his Purple Martins and recommend some great places for us to check out in Texas.

We wish we could have spent another night, and we hope to see them again when we pass through Texas again.

Excellent Accommodations and Hosts!

The Ranch is an amazing place to stay located out in the country. There are several beautiful spots on the property. If you like nature, this is your place. They have various bird feeders and houses throughout the property. We saw so many colorful, unique birds. The night sky is gorgeous and the lack of light pollution allows you to see all the stars; it was amazing. It's a peaceful, quiet place with enough space for your dogs to run all day.

I can't say enough good things about the owners. They are very kind and welcoming. They have an amazing setup that makes the experience worth the short distance from the highway. You definitely need to stay here if you are near the area. We'll definitely be coming back!

Wonderful host & Location

We loved our stay at the Ranch! Hosts were kind and welcoming and everyone loved their pup!

Location is off the beaten path and we saw raccoons and deer during our stay. We heard coyotes, but did not see them. We loved the peace and quiet!

We ventured into Austin for a day (about 90 mins away) and enjoyed seeing the city.

Thanks so much for your hospitality!!

Country Charm

I absolutely love this location and I really enjoyed spending time with the hosts. They are wonderful people and fun to be around. I liked it so much here that I ended up staying a lot longer than I had booked for. Extremely quiet at night and very comfortable. The property is amazing and I had lots of fun exploring it. Fabulous sunsets and lots of birds. Sound good? I definitely recommend staying here. I'm positive everyone would love it as much as i did. I look forward to staying here again sometime in the future.

Very cool experience

The roads in are quite challenging but well worth it. Doug and Geneva are wonderful and engaging folks. There property is amazing with many innovative systems. They sit on over 300 acres with many birds, deer, etc. Plan to spend more than one night... you will enjoy the conversation and the anecdotes of American history. The ultimate boondocking relaxing spot!

Just wanted to shout out to My Hosts with a Big Texas Thank You for the hospitality and the opportunity to be your guest! Excellent location-the birds and the breeze and the hiking through the woods was so relaxing.....plenty of wildlife....this is a Purple Marten Sanctuary with the snazziest "bird condos".....cardinals galore, woodpeckers, deer and more.....these Hosts are the Best!
