What a wonderful peaceful place to stay! Highly recommend this B&B to anyone needing a break from the hectic pace of life! Our cabin was cozy and comfortable. The ranch is a great place to explore, enjoy the animals and star gaze at night.

We stayed at the Daisy cabin this past weekend for a wedding shower and our experience was exceptional! We felt the relaxation of being away from Houston. My children enjoyed running and playing and visiting the animals. We sat outside on our deck and drank in the silence. We left feeling renewed and at peace. Our stay was exceptional in every way!

Treehouse In the Pines

5 on May 13, 2015

My stay in the Eagle's Nest cabin afforded me with an opportunity to live out one of my lifelong fantasies of staying in a tree house in the woods. I knew I was coming to to a rustic cabin on the 9e ranch, but the tree house quality of this cabin and the panorama of green really took me by surprise. The cabin was perched on a hill and had windows on all sides. The views were framed by the kind of tall pines one would expect to find in the Rocky Mountains. Then, they open up into the rolling green hills of ranch lands speckled with longhorn cattle and piney woods filled with wild life of every kind. I couldn't have picked a better time of year for my stay in the Texas hill country. The temperature was cool enough to keep my windows open both day and night. I was recharged by the sound of crickets, raindrops and bird calls. In fact, I was able to spot the first painted bunting of the season.

The cabin and surrounding land was beautiful and very relaxing. My husband and I enjoyed our stay, but wish we had more time to explore the grounds.

Awesome time at the ranch!

Our family needed some relaxation and decided to spend the weekend at the ranch. It was wonderful, we stayed in the Lonestar cabin and our daughter really loved it because she had her own area in the loft. We were able to play multiple games of monopoly together and it really took us away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. 9E Ranch is the best place to relax in the country!

Thank you for your kind review!

Great cabins!

My husband and I have stayed at the 9E Ranch twice now. Both times we were very pleased. The cabins are comfortably decorated. Always clean. Great personal touches like fresh muffins and bread awaking in the fridge as well as several bottles of water. This year we also had a nice surprise of farm fresh eggs awaiting. Since there is no restaurant on site it makes mornings very nice. They also provide. Coffee maker and coffee. What appears to be homemade soap has been in the bathroom both times. We will be going back! Thanks for the great Texas hospitality!!

Always enjoy the stay at the 9E. It's off the beaten path, no intrusions, and great sleeping! The supplied farm fresh eggs and home made muffins are great.

Scenic, comfortable, friendly, lovely ranch!
