I recently stayed at the Feed Mill for the first time and loved it! The decor is perfect and similar to the Livery Stables which is another Fredericksburg favorite. The bed was comfortable and the large spa tub was awesome. Love the rescue animals.. a nice lab decided to come to the door and hang out for a while. The...

Staying here is not inexpensive, but for the spaciousness and quality of the accommodations, I had few complaints. We stayed with friends in the Bunk House. There were two large bedrooms and bathrooms with every amenity one would expect of a fine resort villa. One major difference is the freedom of the ranch's resident animals, who will probably stop by...

My Girlfriend and I stayed at The SIlo in River Road Ranch the weekend of September 28th. We were impressed with the care that went into the renovation and decoration of the Silo. The interior was spotless throughout. It was roomy and romantic with a large jacuzzi. It felt very private. We enjoyed taking early morning walks around the ranch...

My husband and I chose this place for our anniversary, WOW! We loved it from the moment we drove into the property... the antiques, the humor, and the hospitality. Smitty really knows how to make you feel right at home, oh and Bootsie the Wonder Dog makes you fit right in too. Smitty even took the time to teach us...

This place was an excellent play to stay. We stayed in the Feed Mill, and the accommodations were very nice and clean with a separate bath, bedroom and living/kitchen area. We loved exploring the ranch by foot and 4-wheeler. We loved seeing how the animals just roamed free and interacted with each other - living in the city, one does...

This lodging is good for kids, they can play with roaming animals which makes for a unique experience. The owner is accommodating, kind and sincere, and really tries to make your stay fun. (owners live on property, so if you want privacy...might not be the place for you) The homes are large and nice with everything you need for a...

What a great place!!! The "Feed Mill" was great...fireplace, jacuzzi tub, big screen tv...etc!! That's not what made this trip a "WOW". The "WOW" was because of the ranch as a whole and our hosts, Smitty and Natalie. First...the ranch...we were greeted by "the welcoming committe"...a loveable dog "Boots" and several not so wild turkeys. This old west Ranch was...

This seriously is the best place in Texas to visit. They have wonderful animals that are so sweet. Boots the dog is such a great tour guide and protector. It really was the best trip ever. We will be back and are thinkiing about having our wedding there.

3 generations of our family spent two nights at this wonderful ranch right outside of Fredericksburg. We occupied the Bunkhouse and the Silo. The kids, aged 7, 8 and 11 roamed the ranch and checked out all the “old-timey” stuff. They were followed everywhere by the loving and always-watchful ranch dog, Boots. They fed the horses, petted the goats and...

“One of the rooms is a "Silo", it is not the place we stayed but before we left we peaked in to see the place and all I can say is book it fast, you will not be disappointed!”

“The SIlo has a spiral staircase to a loft bedroom. It would not be a good choice for people who find it challenging to climb stairs.”

“Don't tell the reservation service the actual number of guests that will be staying, this way if you need to cancel they won't stick you with the fully loaded room! Even if you show up and part of your party did not make it the reservation service refuses to refund you the $30 extra per person they initially charged you.”
