If you are a city-dweller, like I am, treat yourself to a few days at 9E Ranch. Our family had had enough of New York and Chicago, and we all gathered here for 3 days of bliss. We walked paths through the rolling hills, saw Longhorn cattle and horses, visited tiny old Texas towns, ate amazing barbecue, and saw an entirely different side of this great country we live in. Reasonable prices, and a memory that will last forever. We can't wait to go back.

We love to stay at the 9 E Ranch, especially in the Eagle's Nest Cabin. We were really up in the pines with lots of windows and a beautiful view. It is a quiet and peaceful place to get away from it all. The star gazing is the best around. The cabin is very clean and the bed is very comfortable. Thanks to Kent and Joan for your hospitality.

My Mom and I stayed in the Daisy Cottage in April for our annual trip to the Round Top Antiques Market. We could not have felt more at home. The house was exceptionally clean and had all the amenities of home - and beautifully decorated too with Joan's art! We also enjoyed visiting the friendly donkey's as they will follow you around. We met Joan and Kent, the innkeepers and they made us feel so welcome - really lovely people! We will be coming back next year and beyond. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and memorable! Sincerely, Jackie Johnston

We have visited 9E many times since our discovery of this gem in 2004(give or take a year or two...it's been so long we don't remember our first visit!). We've also visited other B&B's in Texas and around the country, it's my favorite thing to do when we travel. 9E is a short drive from our home in Clear Lake, just outside Houston, but once we are there, it feels like we are on another planet! We prefer the Eagles Nest Cabin, we call it the RE cabin....RElax - REcharge-REconnect. It's in a quite setting with priceless views of the pasture, long horn cattle, and farm pets. Everything is neat and clean, and sometimes there is a special treat waiting when you arrive. The breakfast(s) are yummy, home cooked and never a disapointment! My husband knows how to please me....a "gift" weekend to 9E earns him millions of brownie points! The Bohls' are fabulous host, friendly, but not intrusive. In addition, there's always something to do in the local towns of Bastrop and Smithville....either is just a short drive. We love to visit the Antique shops in Smithville, and fests in Bastrop....or just "hangout" at the ranch. There's trails to hike, bird and wildlife to see, or just park your self at the Gazebo and relax with the fantastic views! Go...stay a weekend...choose the Eagles Nest...you won't be disapointed! Pick up a cookbook too....some of the yummy things are in it!

I'm actually writing a review a neglected to write last year; it was such a great experience we intended to go back for our anniversary weekend this year but had to cancel due to work issues (Joan was very gracious and we had absolutely no problem.) As far as last year's stay- we stayed in the Lone Star cabin (I believe it's called). It has the lowest price but we actually chose it because we liked the pictures of it the best- and we were not disappointed. I loved the rustic feel. It was rainy the weekend we were there so we didn't see stars, but it was lovely hearing the rain on the roof and seeing it through the skylight. The highlight of my husband's stay were the breakfasts- they were absolutely delicious and had a wonderful presentation- delivered to your door in a basket at the time you select. The little town near was also interesting to ramble through for a little while with consignment and coffee shops. Our stay was definitely worthy of a 5-star review!
