The location of the ranch is great if you want solitude. Really rural location and you will need to drive if you would like to visit local bars or diners. Very pretty landscape and nice views. Be warned, there are lots of bugs and insects so it is advised not to open the doors from sunset throughout summer. The AC... More

We stayed at Texas Ranch Life last August 2015 as part of our month long honeymoon around the US. The Elick family were great - super kind and helpful! They organized for us to go skeet shooting and horseriding with a 'cowboy' and we had quite the adventure! We stayed at the Sunday house which was really nice and cosy!... More

Magical historic house on a fishing pond. The Longhorn herds are always near by! This place has everything you would need to stay here long term comfortably! Just loved everything about it! The ranch roads to get here are tricky but add to the 'Texas Adventure'. Don't miss the morning sunrises over the fishing pond!

Our family of five spent Christmas Eve and morning enjoying the Sunday house and the ranch... it was perfect! It is so hard to feel connected and enjoy family time with so much media constantly in the way ... we loved the quiet and enjoyed each other and our special family time so much!

Dad, Mom and 3 teenagers had a great 3 day get-away to kick of Thanksgiving week. We've spent some time at a few other vacation Ranch lodges (this is NOT a dude ranch) and Texas Ranch Life was up there among our better experiences. Owners John & Taunia have done an outstanding job renovating and decorating 7-8 historic homes from... More

We held my son's wedding rehearsal dinner while having family and friends from all over the country stay with us in 5 different houses on the property! It was the perfect Texas experience!

If your looking for a secluded place with lots of room for the family this is your place. We took advantage of the dove hunting and pond fishing. They were both a nice experience. We rented the LODGE AND THE CABIN. We had more than enough room. The kitchen was great and the scenery and peace and quiet were great.

We stayed here for 3 nights recently as we were in the area visiting family who didn't have a guest room that we could stay in. We didn't spend much time here - just to sleep really as we were out all day. We stayed in the The Sunday House which was mostly as described on the website. That said,... More

My Partner & I recently visited my daughter who is currently working in Houston. We all stayed at The Lakehouse, which I can only say was exactly as we had imagined. Restored by Taunia, who is lovely by the way, it has a very authentic feel, and was very comfortable. The riding out over the Ranch was a highlight. Craig... More

My husband and I recently spent our anniversary weekend at Texas Ranch Life, and it was a delightful experience in every way. Accommodation - we stayed in the Hacienda, which is spaciously beautiful and airy, and utterly private, surrounded by rolling fields as far as the eye can see. Gorgeous and quiet, with only the sounds of nature (birds, owls,... More
