The 9e ranch is so chaming!

4.8 on September 15, 2014

We love staying at the 9e. This time we stayed in Eagle's Nest cabin and the view in the morning with their yummy fair traded coffee is lovely. You may see the herd of Longhorns that call the 9e home. They have all types of chickens roaming on the ranch too .They are so fun and if you are lucky you may just have some of those farm fresh eggs in your cabin when you get there. There's nothing like fresh eggs. I had a wonderful night sleep and love the new sheets they are using out there now! We always love getting away from Austin city life and heading out to the 9e for some peace and relaxation!

Peaceful evening

After a hectic week the Eagle's Nest Cabin at 9e was wonderful on Friday evening. Peaceful and relaxing are words that come to mind. About an hour from Round Rock by using the 130 Toll Road. Hope to return soon when we have an entire weekend open. Beautiful tall pines offer a great setting for a quick escape. No meals are included but the kitchen in the cabin is fully stocked with dishes, etc.

9E Ranch is instant family favorite!

I am so happy I found this jewel. We stayed in Michelle's Cabin and it was so lovely and charming. The bed sheets were scrumptious. My 3 year old son was so excited he kept saying "New House" like it was ours. There "check-in" is different, we went straight to our cabin and were instantly greeted by two beautiful, friendly, loveable horses. I really miss Joe Boy. The property is very beautiful and rustic. We had fresh ranch eggs and huge muffins provided for breakfast. The kitchen is stocked with utensils and plates. I felt really at peace while there and I felt right at home. I hope to visit again soon and maybe see one of the other cabins. Joan is a very bright spirit and it was a joy to meet her and stay at her ranch. We can't wait to return. Thank you so much.

My family of 6 stayed in the Daisy cabin during a weekend wedding engagement. What a lovely, peaceful time we had! The kids enjoyed the animals, and we enjoyed the seclusion!

More beautiful than you can imagine

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Texas Lone Star cabin, and it was more than we could have asked for. First of all, the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. On top of that, we couldn't get over how cute the cabin was, and it was clean and had everything we needed (a stove, pots/pans, dishes, shower, a/c, extremely comfy bed, etc.). It was the perfect first stop on our Texas road trip. The only thing I could mention that isn't even a real negative is that other guests said in their reviews that they got waffles, breakfast tacos, etc. for their breakfast. Our breakfast was a case of eggs in the frig and three muffins. We aren't complaining. We just made our own breakfast and went on with our day. The muffins looked homemade and were good, but we thought we were going to have a breakfast made for us since it is a "bed and breakfast," and that was what the other reviews had led me to believe. Maybe you only get a homemade breakfast if you stay for more than one night. I don't know. Either way, the cabin was awesome, and we definitely plan on returning. It was exactly the romantic getaway we wanted. From the walking trails, front porch sittin', awesome oldies CD selection and the adorableness of the log cabin, I assure you that you cannot go wrong with 9e ranch!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. So sorry about not getting the breakfast basket. We no longer deliver a breakfast basket but put muffins and eggs in the cabin. We did it for over 10 years. Hope you come back soon.

Wonderfl & Relaxing

My husband, 6 month old son & I stayed at the 9E Ranch this past weekend for our first family vacation. It was amazing. We stayed in the Daisy Cottage, it was warm and inviting and we all felt right at home. Joan made us homemade Blueberry muffins that were absolutely delicious! There were Longhorns, Horses, Chickens, & Ponies on the property that our son fell in love with. They also have many wonderful hiking trails that we spent hours on. We found this place through a Google search on accident and it was one of the best vacations we've ever had! I highly recommend the 9E Ranch to anyone looking to escape their hectic city life you won't be disappointed.

Darling little cabin and beautiful Spring wildflowers

4.8 on April 28, 2014

We booked the "Lonestar Cabin" for a weekend in April. Perfect time to visit the ranch. The wildflowers are in full bloom and we got amazing pictures in the bluebonnets on the property. The weather was pleasant for exploring the grounds, spending time chillin on the front porch with our dog, and sleeping with the windows open. +1 for pet friendly! The Lonestar Cabin is one main room with a loft. That may seem small, but for a traveling couple we found it to be cozy and spacious enough for our needs. The rental is well-appointed with cookware and dishes and spices (we made spaghetti and meatballs), nice soaps/shampoo, extra towels, books, radio, etc. Just bring a change of clothes and walking/hiking shoes! The owner even leaves you fresh muffins and eggs from the chickens on property. The Lonestar Cabin is fairly private. The ranch lane passes by the house, but all the other cabins are quite a distance from this one and we never felt encroached upon. One important thing to note: The well water on the ranch is VERY sulfurous. I'm sure it's fine to drink, but if you're sensitive to smelly water, I would recommend bringing your own gallon jugs from HEB for drinking and cooking. Also, be aware that this is a ranch in Central Texas and you will encounter fire ants, wasps, and the occasional scorpion (we didn't see any scorpions). That said, we found the interior of the cabin to be completely free of bugs. The house seemed well-constructed and the windows are newer with quality screens, so you can let the breeze flow in at night. Bottom Line: Had a great time, farm animals!, beautiful cabin, pet friendly, close to Austin - LOVE IT.

Awesome experience

Our family had a fantastic time escaping city life and retreating to the 9E Ranch. The Ranch is the perfect place to discover nature and find peace. The Ranch is very child friendly, and the hosts are warm and wonderful. I can not recommend the 9E enough to someone seeking nature at its finest!

A perfect place to get away and relax in the country. Great views, hiking paths, beautiful horses and longhorns. Loved it.

Loved our stay

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lone Star cabin at 9e ranch. It looks extremely rustic, but was very well made and clean. Any amenity we needed was on hand and the muffins left in the fridge were delicious!
