We went to Dixie Dude Ranch for a long weekend and had a good time! Our room was nice:

We arrived late Friday night. All of the meals were provided, but breakfast was at 8 AM every morning, so we slept in. Friday afternoon we rode horses for the first time:
We also did a lot of reading. One of the places we hung out was the main lodge:
There were some trails to walk on, although they were longer than they looked. They also weren't marked terribly well so we got a little lost a few times.
But mostly we hung around the ranch and did a lot of reading and such. There was no cell service on the ranch, although there was (slow) WiFi in the main lodge. After a day of adjusting to this, I found that my attention span got much longer, which was nice. We also played washers and horseshoes and such.
Sunday evening the ranch doesn't server dinner, so we went into Bandera for a bit of shopping and food.
No other guests were staying Sunday night, so things got a little spooky. Luckily a few more people were around Monday and Tuesday before we left.
Anyway, it was a very relaxing vacation and the staff was very friendly. (they even started bringing breakfast to our room when we woke up!) If you're looking for a dude ranch type place I'd recommend it!
