Dixie Dude Ranch

For over 75 years, a Texas Hill Country vacation at Dixie Dude Ranch in Bandera, Texas has been a tradition for visitors from all over the world. This Texas guest ranch is the perfect Western getaway to unwind, relax, and simply put the stresses of every day life on hold. You'll enjoy horseback riding, delicious meals, comfortable accommodations and the long tradition of dude ranch hospitality.

Just an hour from San Antonio, Texas, Dixie Dude Ranch is popular for family reunions, summer family vacations, Texas Hill Country honeymoon vacations, school trips and more.  
The guest ranch, nestled in the spectacular Texas Hill Country, continues to adhere to its original purpose - a real working ranch where longhorn cattle, Spanish goats, and pigs are raised, where real cowboys work the horses and compete in rodeos, and where the meals are always home-cooked. At Dixie Dude Ranch when they tell a guest, "This is your home on the range," they mean it.
Located near Bandera, Texas, proclaimed as the Cowboy Capital of the World, the Dixie Dude is not a resort ranch. It is an old-time working stock ranch founded by William Wallace Whitley in 1901, and is now into the fifth generation of showing you true Texas hospitality.
Situated on 725 acres, the Dixie Dude Ranch offers fine vistas of spectacular Texas Hill Country, with plenty of room to relax, catch a glorious sunset or kick up your heels. 
The rooms, cabins and spacious Ranch Headquarters provide all the modern comforts your family will need to create the vacation of a lifetime.

Dining at Dixie Dude Ranch is a culinary delight. You'll eat healthy, hearty, Texas-sized meals prepared for you three times a day. Meals are served family-style in the friendly atmosphere of our big chow hall, as well as outdoor barbecues, and occassional cowboy breakfasts served out on the range. Indulge in our famous BBQ ribs, pork sausage, brisket and fixings every Saturday evening and Southern fried chicken, mashed potatoes, homemade rolls and fixings every Sunday afternoon. When the chow bell rings, you'll come running to savor our home-cooked meals.
With all meals we serve iced tea, homemade lemonade, water and milk. Feel free to bring your own beverage of choice as well.

You'll find plenty of creature comforts at Dixie Dude Ranch, the perfect place for a Texas Hill Country vacation. The full-service dude ranch includes  a large pool with a hot tub, recreational areas for adults and children, great family-style meals served in our indoor and outdoor dining areas, a seasonal fishing pond, a well-stocked gift shop for souvenir shopping and plenty of front porch space for relaxing.
