Very relaxing holiday in the Hill Country, wonderful, caring hosts, Joe and Becky. Great storytelling around the campfire at night!! warm delicious breakfasts in the morning, homemade, and hand delivered!! Great scenery, open fields, with deer and jackrabbits! You will not find a better place to stay, west of Austin. We will return. Paul and Nancy, Minnetonka, Minnesota

After reading the other reviews, I was excited to take my sister and her friend who are visiting from Canada to Fredericksburg and have an overnight stay at Tonkawaya Ranch. No surprises with the cabin as you can see pictures online. What was surprising was that the sofa bed was a lumpy bumpy mess and we discovered at bed time... More

Hello Again! Thank you for the candid review. Your concerns are well taken, and I thank you for the opportunity to address them. First, excellent point on the sofa bed. Sofa beds are pretty notorious for being uncomfortable. I immediately inspected the mattress - couldn't find lumps or bumps, but did note that the metal frame can be felt where... More

My husband and I stayed at Tonkawaya Ranch this past weekend, for two nights, in the Little White House/Cabin. When we travel, whether it's in-state or out, I appreciate being able to come to Tripadvisor for reviews and pictures. Finding this property was just that - a Find! Becky and Joe have about 70 acres if I'm not mistaken, just... More

This place was absolutely amazing! We stayed in The Little White House. It was perfect in every way. It was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated.

Stayed at Tonkawaya Ranch with a group of friends (3 couples) in the Wrangler Cabin. A perfect location for our trip to Fredericksburg (just a few minutes drive into town). Beautiful property, cabins are very clean and well kept. The food alone is worth the stay- INCREDIBLE!

Kids and I stayed here for a Hill Country getaway (Pedernales Falls, Enchanted Rock, Fredricksburg, Longhorn Cavern). Stayed a Mon and Tue night (the week most schools start) so we had the place to ourselves, which made it extra peaceful. The Wrangler cabin was awesome. It had everything we needed. It was quaint and cozy. The front porch was great... More

We were really happy with the location of this place. It seems to be in the middle of nowhere but at the same time only 6 miles from town.

Thank you for a lovely review! The Retreat cabin is one of our most requested cabins, and we have carefully planned each cabin... Maybe next time you should try the Little White House, one of our newest, with a jacuzzi tub and rain shower....
