The cabin was very comfortable, creatively decorated and the ranch is an interesting piece of property on its own. We stayed on Halloween night and Nov.1st and believe we were visited by the ghost of Michelle. We heard alot of strange noises on both nights soon after retiring! A huge spider in its web on the upper corner of the entry door´s jamb only added to the intrigue.

We had a wonderful time staying in Michelle's Cabin. The well kept cabin was outfitted in an equine theme and had much reading material to choose from. There were muffins and fresh eggs in the fridge and there were attractively packaged toiletries in the bathroom. The cabin even exceeded the online description. Our little 23 month old grandson really enjoyed waking up to the horses grazing right outside the front door. The night sky was full of stars and the setting was so peaceful and quiet. The ranch is centrally located to many areas of south central Texas including Bastrop, Smithville and Austin, We hope to come back again!

We loved the cottage, the muffins and the hospitality. It had everything we needed, and more. Very clean place and cozy. We'll recommend it to all our friends!

Perfect for a getaway in the country for complete R & R. Our cabin had all the comforts of home. Not much to do in the area, but that's what we wanted, total relaxation. So if you're looking for fine dining & night life, this isn't for you. I would definitely come back to this same cabin.

The ranch is beautiful and the resident animals are fun to observe no matter what the weather is doing. On our recent visit with our one-and-a-half year old granddaughter the weather was overcast and rainy. This did not deter our hosts from taking us on a fun tour to see the miniature horses, longhorns, miniature donkeys, and chickens. Our granddaughter loved getting up close to the many different kinds of chickens in their coop! Our hosts also treated us to an impromptu tea party back at their house which was fun for the little one. We have stayed here often and we love it!

Getting away from it all does not mean doing without, and rustic does not mean primitive. This lovely getaway puts the focus on wildlife and the stars. Not so much a bed and "breakfast," you get a fully equipped kitchen along with coffee, muffins, and fresh eggs. Eat when you want, when you want. This is a horse farm, so feel free to wander around looking at the horses, or investigate the chickens. Or just sit on the porch and rock. It's all good.

We had a terrific stay in Eagle's Nest cabin last weekend. I woke up and went for an early morning walk and saw white tail deer and a beautiful sunrise.

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!

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.

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.
