Great trip. The rooms were comfy and clean. There were plenty of things for the kids to do. The staff did a great job working with the kids. My daughter enjoyed the horseback ride and hiking the trails. Others enjoyed fishing and tubing on the creek. There was something that appealed to everyone. We had a great time and would...

The entire 2E crew was awesome! All inclusive trip is the way to go. From the meals, campfire, and riding the horses - you can't beat it. I had a great weekend. I can't wait to do it all again. Thanks to Kathlyn and staff!!!

This was one of the best band trips I have ever taken kids on. Horseback riding, campfires, hay rides, tubing on the river, swimming, fishing...... these kids never had so much fun. I rarely saw a phone out, it was great. The staff here was amazing. Kathlyn KNOWS about customer service, let me tell you. She had every detail covered....

My family and I recently spent two nights at Twin Elm, and were devastated when it was time to leave. Manager Kathlyn was a wonderful host - my five-year-son fell in love with her immediately - and she couldn't do enough to help or make us feel welcome. From horse-riding through the beautiful countryside, to home-cooked meals and roasting marshmallows...

This place is awesome. Kathlyn and the staff went way beyond the call to make my stay more enjoyable than I could have imagined. The grounds are well kept, and beautiful. My stay was in the rv park and it's one of the best I've visited. Walking the grounds at night left me with memories of country living as a...

We stayed at Twin Elm Guest Ranch during the Thunder in the Hill Country bike rally. The manager, Kathlyn, went out of her way to not only accommodate our entire group (27 of us!!), but to go over and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, enjoyable, and that everyone felt very welcomed! Kathlyn and her entire staff made...

We've stayed twice with Kathlyn at 2E for Thunder in the Hill Country bike rally. Accommodations are rustic with cabins and multiple sleeping arrangements from Twins and bunks to King and everything in between. RV park side is spacious, pretty, and quiet. Service from Kathlyn and team makes the trip! Grounds are wonderful. Large groups accommodated and welcomed! Lots to...

We had a great time at the ranch. The owners are really nice, very welcoming, and have created an experience that is simple, comfortable, and really fun. From home cooked meals to s'mores over a campfire to hiking and horseback riding the whole experience is just great. The rooms are perfect as well - clean, comfortable, simple, and rustic. Will...

We enjoyed our one night stay at the ranch. It's not fancy and is rustic but what one would appreciate staying at a ranch. Lots of great activities for families and a hearty cowboy breakfast that was great. We would stay here again.
