Bandera itself is like a theme park town based on the old west except its REAALLLL!!!!
The area is a gem and the ranch holds its own against a high standard.
The ranch house has plenty of activities and just being in the ranch house is an activity with things to look at, history on the walls all throughout the house and nice architecture as well.
The property is great outside the house too, the pool is TEXAS SIZED and has an outlook over the hills/valley and a shady spot to sit and enjoy that warm dry TEXAS air - you can see deer, rabbits and other wildlife around and it feels wonderfully serene.
We were never around for lunches or dinners (because its close enough to other places that you can go out but other guests told us we missed out on some bonfire fun) but the breakfasts were good with a variety of choices - and the staff were legitimately happy to help and make any special requests happen.
Rides are included in the stay - you wont be riding hard or fast on the trails, but the secenery is great, horses are happy, staff have stories and if going fast is something that you want to complain about - ask the staff for a private ride and you'll get it.
The place is family run, family owned and they've created one of the better family experiences I've ever seen in my life.
