Rancho Loma (Bed & Breakfast)
At this prairie ranch outside of Abilene, breakfast is served and beds are slept in. Otherwise, Rancho Loma, or what owners Laurie and Robert Williamson call a Restaurant + Rest, is a serious departure from a traditional B&B. The five stand-alone cottages are modern and minimalist, with polished concrete floors, southern exposure sliding glass doors, Frette linens, and in the case of the King Room (the best to book) a freestanding soaking tub. Surrounding fields of strawberries, heirloom tomatoes, and almond, pecan, and peach trees now supplement Laurie’s daily changing menus.
