Twin Elm Guest Ranch

Our family met here at Twin Elms for a mini family reunion and also for my Dad to visit with some lifelong friends. We arrived very late in the evening and we not able to "see" the property upon arrival, but the next morning when we went outside to breakfast, I was personally in awe of the whole property. We stayed in the bunk house which is close to the dining area, the rec room and directly across from the pool, the pavilion, the campfire pit and the hoop court.
We were able to sit on the porch and just relax and visit while being able to watch the kids play on the hoop court and run and play. This was so laid back and relaxing.

Our group ate breakfast and dinner which was set up in a buffet style and the food was fantastic home cooked hearty ranch style food.

The staff we interacted with, Kathlyn - Manager, Kevin - Wrangler and Colt the Cowboy were all great, very friendly and so nice to all of us and good with the children.
If you need anything, just ASK, the staff here will bend over backwards to take care of you!!

Our room was clean, comfortable and rustic in step with the theme of the ranch.

Many members of our group went horse back riding and had a great time.

This place is for relaxing and for folks who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of their busy lives, sit on the porch and just enjoy being disconnected from the busy world. It is not an upscale hotel that you find in a metropolitan setting, if that is what you are looking for, then this place is not for you.

I plan to come back to Twin Elms as soon as I can and HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone.

I am hoping that my Dad and his Oklahoma buddies can all return and visit again soon!!

Room Tip: Great place to get away and relax!!

Great trip. The rooms were comfy and clean. There were plenty of things for the kids to do. The staff did a great job working with the kids. My daughter enjoyed the horseback ride and hiking the trails. Others enjoyed fishing and tubing on the creek. There was something that appealed to everyone. We had a great time and would return.

This was one of the best band trips I have ever taken kids on. Horseback riding, campfires, hay rides, tubing on the river, swimming, fishing...... these kids never had so much fun. I rarely saw a phone out, it was great.

The staff here was amazing. Kathlyn KNOWS about customer service, let me tell you. She had every detail covered. From every meal, to the perfectly clean rooms, to arranging live entertainment at the campfire as she taught the kids how to make smores. She saw to every last detail.

I will bring my family here sometime, for sure.

By far the best high school group we have ever had at the ranch! We appreciate the review but your polite, respectful kids were easy to have as guest. Thank you again for bringing such an amazing group!

My family and I recently spent two nights at Twin Elm, and were devastated when it was time to leave. Manager Kathlyn was a wonderful host - my five-year-son fell in love with her immediately - and she couldn't do enough to help or make us feel welcome. From horse-riding through the beautiful countryside, to home-cooked meals and roasting marshmallows over a bonfire, it's a truly magical place. Thank you Kathlyn!

Thank you so much for your interest in Twin Elm Guest Ranch and 2E RV Resort. We have about 200 hundred acres of the most beautiful Texas hill country and Indian Creek meets the Medina River right here on our property. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. You can enjoy hiking on one of our many trails looking for arrowheads and other Indian artifacts or spend the day fishing in the river. We offer horseback riding four times a day. Our sunset hayrides are always fun and roping lessons soon follow. There is nothing more magical than to sit out by the campfire and look at the millions of stars and roast marshmallows and make s’mores. We serve three big cowboy meals a day in our rustic dining hall. Our game room is equipped with two televisions, pool table, air hockey and ping pong table. You will love it here! ... more   less
