Having just spent a few days at the Silver Spur Ranch, I can say I want to be a Cowgirl. I happened to be traveling to Texas anyway for a conference and stayed awhile longer to attend my cousin’s wedding. I chose to stay at the Silver Spur Ranch simply because that’s where the reception was to be held, and I wanted a western experience while in the area.
From the moment you enter the gate, you feel that you’ve entered a world removed. There are no traffic lights or sirens here. Jackrabbits stop and stare just as the long-horned cattle in the adjacent field placidly go about their business. There are no phones in the rooms – but you won’t miss them. You’ll be too busy riding on the trails, swimming, relaxing in the lodge or heading off to a local rodeo. A stand-out feature is the Hill Country State Natural Area next door, which means you have 5,400 additional acres to explore without even needing to get off your horse.
Family-owned and operated, the staff of the Silver Spur make you feel like a member of the family right away. A relaxed but professional atmosphere show that old world charm still exists. Meals taken in the dining room are communal affairs with hearty home cooking and cheerful conversation guaranteed. A versatile venue, the ranch has a variety of accommodations suitable for couples, families, youth groups, etc. as well as facilities for conferences, weddings and reunions.
Ten minutes from Bandera, the “Cowboy Capital of the World”, the ranch is close to countless western shops and antique stores. San Antonio and the Alamo are an hour away, and even closer is Fredericksburg - home to museums, vineyards, herb and wildflower farms and other cultural activities.
Visit the Silver Spur Ranch for a taste of the “Best of the West.”
