“Wow!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

We brought a Girl Scout troop of 10 girls to the ranch for the weekend.
Ms. Victoria and Capn' Kury were wonderful. They held dinner for us the first night because we were running late!
The hosts were very gracious and fun. The wranglers were wonderful with our group and patient with the girls, many of whom had never ridden a horse before. The food was wonderful and the cabins were very clean and comfortable.
The ranch is very well kept and beautiful.
My family and I will be visiting in the future.

Beautifully located, well run guest ranch with a friendly atmosphere. We have been there twice and our kids (7 and 9) just love it. They get up at seven, get dressed, put on their boots and hats and go out to help the wranglers feed and saddle the horses. Then they hang around the horses all day, if we don´t make them spend at least a little time with their parents (who secretly enjoy wasting a few hours just sitting on the front porch doing nothing).
The food is typical southern cowboy food, not to attractive to a vegetarian, but the staff do their best to make everyone happy.
I would recommend Twin Elm to everyone!

My husband and I visited the ranch for horseback riding. It was my first time and I was a little unsure about how things would go. From the outset Victoria made us feel at home. She took several pictures for us before we went riding and after we got on our horses. Our guide, Justin was wonderful. I felt like I was riding with a real, live cowboy (which I honestly think he is). He knew a lot about the horses, the history of the ranch and gave me pointers for having a better ride. They made te experience a great one for us and we definitely plan to do more riding.

After searching for a place to accommodate a large group of people for a friendly retreat, I finally found it with Twin Elm. We had a large group of young adults (about 35), we all had a fantastic time. There was alot of entertainment at the ranch that kept all of us occupied during our stay as well as lively places to visit on the main street in Bandera. Cap and Victoria really made the trip memorable for all due to their hospitality and fun-loving attitudes. We have this retreat every year and without a doubt will be revisiting in years to come.

My 7 and a 1/2 month wife recently visited and stayed at Twin Elm Guest Ranch. It was our first time in Texas and in cowboy country. Everything from the process of reserving to horseback riding and all in between was a phenomenal experience. The staff including Victoria, Cap, and Justin made sure my wife was completely at home and comfortable! The ranch and facilities were everything we were expecting and more. We highly recommend Twin Elm Guest Ranch for a cowboy experience of a lifetime! We will most definitely be returning to visit with the newest member of our family! Much thanks to everyone at the ranch!
