Relaxing weekend

This was our second stay with Dan and Robbie. It is very relaxing and secluded. Perfect for a weekend away with my husband. Bedrooms are comfortable. There is no onsite dining, but there is a well stocked kitchen. Love the Longhorn cattle. Wish I could bring one home! We will certainly be back.

A Great Getaway

We came here with family and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was plenty to do including feeding the longhorns, hiking, and enjoying the hot tub. Definitely be back.

Of the many places my wife and I have stayed this by far the nicest. The owners and staff were very accommodating when we may a special request. I highly recommend the Canyon Lake Ranch as a place to stay and just relax or use as a base location for the sights of the Texas Hill country and Austin and San Antonio.

I'm home!

Exactly what I was looking for. Met the longhorns! Really nice views from the pouches. Dan & Robbi where great and everything was as promised. Very relaxing and the hot tub helped my racers relax after the win! We had a great time. Thanks!

This was an awesome experience! The accommodations were exceptional and we were greeted with fresh fruit, cookies, and wine, along with binders and brochures to help our planning. It was fun feeding the longhorns and the starry nights were breath-taking. Can't wait to return!

Wonderful Hill Country Getaway

This is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. The accommodations and views are amazing. The beds were super comfy, the hot tub was great and the longhorn cows were fun to be around. The only downside was the shower heads are for those under 5' tall and the water has a sulfur smell to it, probably due to the ground water.

Peace & quiet!!!! Loved the trees and longhorns! Very peaceful to have a cup of joe and sit on the front or back porches and take in the fresh air! 8 minutes away from river & Lake best location for the price! Will return on our next trip!
