The map on Yahoo is not correct. See the ranch website's map for directions.
You will need to call us before you come so we can provide access to our ranch.

Horseback Riding: Brazos Bluffs Stables, LLC offers western horseback rides year-round along the Brazos River and on the rim of the overlooking chalk bluff plus miles of other scenic trails on our ranch. The ride is normally $45 per person but as a house renter you get 20% off!
Horses, tack and helmets are provided.
No experience is necessary.
For your comfort it's best to wear appropriate riding apparel: jeans or riding skirts and closed-toe shoes or riding boots. Most of the horses can carry a maximum of 250 lbs. up the steep hills. If you will need a larger horse, please mention that when you call for reservations.

River Pavilion: The ranch's 800 sq. ft. screened-in river pavilion and 1,330 sq. ft. deck (35' x 38') overlooking the Brazos River plain is an ideal place for family gatherings and business retreats.

Vacation House guests are entitled to a discount to use the river pavilion for events.

We offer a volleyball net, horseshoe pits for you to enjoy, along with an outdoor BBQ pit and gas grill for parties of any size.

The kitchen inside the pavilion includes a refrigerator and sink. The pavilion, deck and separate restrooms are all wheelchair accessible.
