Sorry to report this ranch was not as advertised. The cabin was very outdated and still dusty from the last storm. Shower was such that we didn't use it. Pool was not heated. The meals were sketchy at best. A horseback ride that had been reserved was not available---They had booked a boy scout troop. So our boys did not get their ride. All in all it was a pretty miserable experience---we stayed only one night and cancelled the rest. I would never return here or recommend it.

Beautiful escape from it all. Rustic experience so don't expect the Ritz. Best for night owls that enjoy stargazing, or if you enjoy hiking and horse back riding. Meals aren't the best but the location is worth it alone being between the town of Ft Davis and the McDonald Observatory. Turn off cell phones and leave laptops behind and just enjoy the weather and beautiful views.

This place is in the middle of no where. An Astronomers dream. If you have a Telescope request cabin 34 or 35. It is the darkest in the whole ranch. Breakfast was nice. Dear at your doorstep everyday. Close to the observatory. Bring your own DVD player and your set.
