Known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World,” the city of Banderas showcases a Texas helping of guest ranches. While many of these stays effectively transport visitors back to the Old West, they also offer old accommodations. Modern outdoor adventurists seek an old-fashioned ranch with fresh amenities and philosophies.
That’s where West 1077 Guest Ranch steps in. The Old West rides into the 21st century here, where a peaceful ranch stay highlights the individual experience. Personalized horseback rides, a tranquil atmosphere, and an array of amenities make for an unmatched ranch getaway.
Discover an outdoor oasis just outside your door, as the ranch offers direct access to the adjacent 5,500-acre Hill Country State National Area. Explore more than 40 miles of well-marked trails, perfect for hiking, mountain biking, trail running, bird watching, and appreciating the breathtaking natural splendor. For even more attractions, head to Bandera for golfing, shopping, dining and sightseeing.
Fortunately, you don’t even have to leave the ranch to find fun. Plan a personal horseback riding expedition at the on-property “Juniper Hill Stables,” where guests can schedule a trip at their convenience due to weather conditions and other plans. Traverse the terrain in a small group with this independent outfitter, as there’s no impersonal nose-to-tail riding here.
"Literally, West 1077 is the best little known secret I have discovered thus far,” satisfied guest Jax Cortez said. “You will not leave disappointed."
You definitely won’t be disappointed by the amenities either. To create the best guest experience possible, the original ranch owners luxuriously renovated the ranch in 2014. Make a splash in the sparkling outdoor pool, savor home-made, buffet-style breakfasts and lunches, and soak in the scenery from a porch rocking chair. Kick up your boots in the Lodge, cabins, and cottages and enjoy amenities like open fireplaces, rustic yet refined accommodations, and awe-inspiring Hill Country views.
"Relax, venture, recharge: That's the slogan we chose and that's what we try to achieve for our guests,” owner Iris Kirchner said. “Recharging your batteries is just essential in this hectic world."
