Hotels in Bandera

Life at the 725-acre Dixie outside of Bandera, Texas, revolves around horses, hard work, and hardy meat-filled meals such as brisket, ribs, and huge portions of chicken fried steak, all served family style.

Cowboy bravado is this ranch's hallmark. Intended soley for beginners, the ranch is ideal for the family that knows it wants to do some horseback riding, yes, but plenty of other things as well, like fishing, swimming, tubing, taking in a hootenanny, and...lots of Lone Star–style eating.
