Silver Spur - Average at best
Apr 2021 • Family
The Silver Spur was an interesting vacation. A week before arriving they called to inform me of a computer glitch and that they didn’t have room for us the first night of our vacation. Had to scramble and find another place to stay for one night.
Darren and Ty are AWESOME! They do a great job and are so friendly to the guests!
The rest of our stay was average at best.

Great Experience
Mar 2021 • Family
We spent 24 hours on the ranch and had a wonderful time - our 2 young teens even enjoyed it! Highly recommend the trail ride - the horses were very well trained and the staff were helpful and kind.

Papa J was very informative and enjoyable for the hayride, demos and even at the campfire.

Our room - the Annie Oakley - was well appointed and a good value 👍🏻 Highly recommend this experience!

Spring Break Adventure
Mar 2021
We took our kids 17, 9, 9, and 7 year old, over spring break. We all had the best time. They all forgot about electronic devices, instead the climbed trees, fed the animals, rode horses, hiked trails. The staff is very friendly and open to accommodate any of your needs. Food was awesome, taste like home cooking because its home cooking. All the guests were friendly and nice. Got to meet people from all places of the US and over seas. Papa J's is a great entertainer with his cowboy songs and Whip performances. Overall we LOVED IT. Our kids are already asking if they can spend the entire summer at the ranch!

Great for Families!
Mar 2021
Our family of four loved our stay at Silver Spur! There was so much to do and our 2 night stay went by so fast! We loved riding the horses, petting the donkeys, meeting the goats and feeding the two baby goats, the hayrides to visit the longhorns, the fun and interesting hike to the Indian burial grounds, the nightly campfire, playing with the lassos, learning how to crack the whip, and so much more! There was always something fun going on that we wanted to participate in. The ranch is very well run and the hosts and staff are top notch. We would recommend Silver Spur to anyone looking for the Texas Cowboy Life experience!

We Had A Great Time
Mar 2021
This was our second trip to the Silver Spur Ranch and the first under this new owner. The experience was wonderful. We brought our youngest horse-loving granddaughter for 3 days of trail riding and fun in the country. She had a wonderful time. Lots of other kids there, too. Games to play, animals to pet, hayride, smores by the campfire every evening. And the food was great. You won't go hungry at the Silver Spur. As an older couple with our 10-year-old granddaughter, I liked the pace of the program. Enough scheduled to keep us busy but not rushed, We had some time for rest and relaxation, and yet there was plenty to keep the young ones busy too. I loved setting on the porch in one of the many rocking chairs with a hot cup of coffee. Our room (Belle Starr) was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. We would go back again.

THE place to stay
Feb 2021 • Friends
We stayed a night on the ranch and had a early trailride on Friday morning. We loved it!
We were also aloud to get the horses ready and brush them.
Daran was an amazing and super funny guide and the trail was stunning. The horses are well trained and taken care of. The ranch is a lovely place to stay and the owner is a very funny and good person.
We highly recommend it!

Living the cowboy life :)
Feb 2021
Visit at least once every year and kids still love it just as much. New owners do a great job of taking care of horses and other animals on the ranch. Trail rides are a must and horses are amazing. Hayride and longhorns are a one of a kind experience.

Goats and Donkeys are heart breakers. Family is already missing the ranch.

Easy to drop in Bandera from Ranch and look around.

Good Ranch to stay to have fun
Dec 2020
Silver Spur Ranch is a very good place to stay to relax, lost in the countryside.
You have an half mile road from the public road to the Ranch through the longhorn !
This place is very good, with a lot of animals ; cow longhorn, goats, horses...
You could book a horse ride in the ranch...It is one hour of fun; don't hesitate to go, it is very "easy" horses...
I recommend +++

Fantastic; I will go every year to relax

This is a place where you can leave behind all the stresses of city life. There is no TV here; Wi-fi & phone receptions are patchy at best.
Instead, you live a peaceful life for a few days. The rooms are dated but everything else more than makes up for it.
The staff is like family to you. They make the meals from scratch here. The ATV experience is a must. Also, this place is budget friendly.

This place was AMAZING! We drove in all the way from San Antonio (roughly an hour drive) and all i can say is that it was worth it! I loved the feel of this place and the people there were amazing,”. We went in for breakfast and an early morning horse ride, i wont lie, i was scared as hell to ride the horses but in the end I’m glad i did. I have NO experience in riding horses but that was not a problem, the trail is a loop trail and there are various ones that the guides could take you on. It is a beautiful 1 hour horse ride, the horses are well trained and very obedient as well as beautiful. I would totally recommend visiting Silver Spurs, it’s worth the drive, there are also some beautiful antique as well as cowboy stores on the drive there that make for nice stops.
