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.

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!

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!!

We have be sharing this slice of space between heaven and earth with the Bohls for over 12 years. We try to make a visit at least annually. The really neat thing about 9E is that there is nothing to do...if you don't want to do it! This trip we never left the property...except for dinner. We usually visit Smithsville, or Bastrop during the day, but this time the weather was perfect for lying under the tall pines and listening to the wind move across the land...so we did. There isn't a more relaxing place on earth! We love the Eagles Nest and have stayed there all but one time. The place is super clean, private and with a view that just won't stop! We miss Joan's cooking, but the farm fresh eggs were a delight along with the muffins. I can't tell you all the wonderful memories we have at 9E, they are just endless. In Bastrop you can find an assortment of restaurants to meet any taste's desire. Antique shops are plentiful in Smithsville and in the spring Bluebonnets are everywhere. I know we will be back...it's at the top of our list when we need to push the pause button on our hectic lives. You should too...and visit 9E!

The Longhorns and mini donkeys greeted us when we arrived. After they wondered off a few deer even came to visit before sunset. We had a very relaxing and peaceful visit. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place. Connie Elliott
