Listed as one of YAHglobal.Com's "Authentic Dude Ranches Near Dallas". Read the reason below:
Austin Ranch is one of the oldest dude ranches in Texas and has been inviting ranch lifestyle enthusiasts to it's 90 acres of lush surroundings and a crystal clear 10 acre lake since the late 1800's. In addition to a landscape that escapes proper description, Austin Ranch is home to classic western amenities and expansive (12,200 square feet) interiors that include a grand ballroom, an authentic styled Silver Lake Saloon, and an additional 9,000 square feet worth of outdoor patio space for dining or simply enjoying the Texas sunset.
Everything you can imagine about a dude ranch experience can be found at Austin Ranch and they accommodate everything from individual adventures, corporate team building exercises, and days of family fun. A highlight for everyone includes the Trail Ride which involves roping, riding, and simply soaking up the scenery while atop your horse and exploring the complete 90 acre expanse of Austin Ranch.
The dinner menu at Austin Ranch is wild west spectacular and perfectly complements the affair with notable dishes including our personal favorite, the Mesquite Smoked Prime Rib w/Creamy Horseradish (with White Truffle Yukon Mashed Potatoes), fresh baked rolls and Pecan Pie for dessert.
Even if cowboy hats and boots aren't in your wardrobe repertoire we guarantee that you will have one of the most relaxing yet adventurous times you've ever experienced at Austin Ranch.
