Area Information
Bandera, Texas: Cowboy Capital of the World

In a rugged county filled with hills, rivers, and a sprawling lake, the small town of Bandera holds a really big place in the hearts of Texans. Located in the beloved Texas Hill Country less than an hour from San Antonio, Bandera reminds us of a different, more authentic, era, when a handshake was all the contract you needed, self-reliance was the norm, and chivalry was a given. There is a spirit of independence and individualism here that speaks of the cowboy tradition of hard work and hard play.

Bandera embodies the cowboy in its strong rodeo tradition. Even today you'll often see horses tied to downtown hitching posts. Bandera County dude ranches offer a taste of the cowboy lifestyle with horseback riding, trail rides, and chuckwagon meals. Secluded cabins tucked away in the hills throughout the county are perfect for watching wildlife, listening to the birds, and gazing at the stars. At local honky-tonks, the music is lively, the dance floor is full, and the beverages are cold.

Garner State Park is only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate. Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy its matchless vacation facilities. They swim in the clear waters of the Frio River, scoot its rapids on inner tubes, rent pedal boats, and hike its fascinating nature trails.

Lost Maples State park is also only a 45 minute drive from Seco Springs Ranch front gate, which gives guided tours of the beautiful hill country it shares with Seco Springs Ranch.

In August 2010 Utopia was the site of filming for a movie called "Seven Days in Utopia", starring Robert Duvall, Lucas Black, Kathy Baker, Melissa Leo, Brian Geraghty, Deborah Ann Woll. Known for wonderful birding year around; our area is a world - class birding & wildlife viewing destination! One of the best places to see many Texas specialty birds; including the Golden - cheeked Warbler, Black - capped Vireo, Vermilion flycatcher and all 3 King - fisher varieties! Nature Guides are available to take you on private ranches and properties.

No need to drive to Colorado for Christmas ever!

How we LOVED our family Christmas this year. It was a Big House on the Praire meets Wild Bill Hickok experience. It was more than we could have imagined. The home was perfect for us--our family of 19 could fellowship in the huge living room--big enough for all ! The massive dining table allowed everyone to be there at once--The kitchen, too. We ALL hung out together, which was our vision for the gathering. We loved that the owner trusted her guests enough to let us enjoy her lovely things--every surface perfectly designed and decorated with her own family pieces. Beautiful pillows, amazing sofas and chairs, comfy rugs---the huge fireplace, ready to be hung with our own stockings......and the bedrooms: no Bed, Bath, and Beyond here. Cowgirl linens dressed big manly beds--pure luxury. We could hardly drag ourselves from our coccoons every morning--(thanks to the blackout draperies)---even the children slept late on Christmas. We caught fish, climbed trees, hiked the canyons (real canyons), stood on the tops of mountains--(the meeting place on top of the highest one was amazing--the perfect place for a sunset bonfire), went four-wheeling, cooked, sang. We loved the little bedroom off of the family room --perfect for our matriarch (92) to nap and the little ones to play, all in earshot. The bunkroom---what an adventure for the cousins---log bunks all lined up like frontier soldiers---so fun!! The foreman was delightful--the owner, a phone call away for advice on outings. Even though it felt like we were out on the frontier, the town and a beautiful Christmas Eve Church service was a short ride away. We were too busy visiting to turn on the tele--but every room had one and the wi-fi was handy for the daddies checking in with work. It was the best of both worlds. We were well blessed by the Lord in this place--it is obvious that the owners are blessed as well. It is a beautiful spot. We wouldn't have changed a thing--we can't wait to go back in the spring!!!
