We stayed at Tonkawaya Ranch for the first time last weekend and it was wonderful! The cabins were clean and quaint and our bed was so comfortable. We stayed in the Windmill cabin. Mornings were so peaceful rocking on the front porch watching the deer in the fields eating the best granola we've ever put in our mouths. Christy's granola...

My husband and I stayed in the Little White House at the Tonkawaya Ranch in Fredericksburg. This cabin was the perfect choice for our first trip to this charming town. The immaculate cabin was decorated beautifully and included homemade treats prepared by the owner. The gourmet breakfasts delivered to the cabin and the hospitality were fabulous! This B & B...

Our stay at Tonkawaya Ranch was everything we hoped for. Once we arrived we really didn't want to leave, even to go into town! The evenings were spent on our front porch enjoying the quiet, peaceful countryside. Our cozy and clean cabin was perfect - from the decor to the extra treats in the kitchen. Christy is a wonderful hostess...

Beautiful property! Sat on the front porch in the morning and watched deer roaming in the pasture. Haven't felt so relaxed in a long time! The cabin was very clean and cozy. The breakfast casserole on Sat morning was delicious! My other favorite food items were the poppyseed muffins and the homemade granola! Thank you for taking such good care...

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. We had a great time. The cabin was extremely clean and the property well maintained. Very peaceful and enjoyed sitting on the front porch enjoying the evenings. The breakfast was so good, we had to get the recipe from Christy.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We stayed 4 days in the Little White House and it is everything the reviews claim it is and plus more! Clayton is an awesome host and we even got to meet his dad around the bonfire. My wife absolutely loved the decor and just over presentation of the little white house....

We have stayed here twice in 2 years, the first year in the Wrangler cabin. It is so cute and comfy! My sister in law and her husband like the White House cabin. It's wonderfully decorated shabby chic. We grilled steaks in the corral and had a fun visit with other guests.

My wife and I stayed here during an anniversary weekend. It's unique, well kept and incredibly relaxing. Such a great location and Clayton and Christy are fantastic hosts. I highly recommend the breakfast. It was fantastic. This is our favorite place that my wife and I have stayed at together. I can't recommend it highly enough

Our family reunion this year was at the Tonkawaya Ranch. All of the cabins were perfect - some had lofts that you could stand up and walk around on the second level.
