Bills! Meetings!! Deadlines!!! When did life get so busy and difficult? While you can’t be a kid again, you can feel like one at our Texas bed and breakfast, in beautiful Cat Spring. If you yearn for the days of fun in the sun without a care in the world, then you need to plan a trip to our Texas ranch, where it’s like summer camp for adults! Keep reading to see all of the ways you can recapture your youth with a fun summer vacation, away from the daily grind.
Sleep in Comfort – from Camping to Cabins
Nights away at summer camp were usually spent in musty tents or overcrowded cabins. At our rustic retreat in Texas you’ll still be staying in a tent or cabin, but this time you will be surrounded by all of the comforts of home. Each of our private cabins and ranch houses come equipped with convenient kitchens, comfortable furnishings, and that must-have for hot summer nights – air conditioning! Some other delightful amenities in our Texas vacation rentals include jetted tubs, private hot tubs, and cozy fireplaces. The Dog Trot House even has a private unheated pool, with room to sleep up to 10, so you can bring all of your childhood best friends for a true camp experience. Or you can choose to “rough it” in our luxurious Grand Safari Tent or Conestoga Covered Wagon. With comfy king beds, heat and AC, private baths and efficient kitchens, these unique lodging options provide for a “glamping” experience that’s definitely a step up from those campouts as a kid.
Enjoy Classic Camp Activities and Horseback Riding
Even though we don’t have counselors or camp directors, your daily activity chart will be full of fun with access to all of our on-site Texas ranch activities! Get those arms warmed up and ready to hold the reigns, pull back a bow, cast a pole and row a boat when you join in camp activities including archery, trapshooting, catch-and-release fishing, horseback riding and more! If a trail ride isn’t up your alley, you can choose to explore the property on our bikes or bring your own, and if you’re feeling lazy, by golf cart! After your day of adventure, we have something that your old summer camp didn’t – in-room massage. Available for singles or couples, it’s a great way to relax and soothe those aging joints and muscles.
Get Up Close and Personal with All Kinds of Critters
In addition to our stables with horses available to ride, we have a much more Texas wildlife and exotic animals roaming around the property that you should be on the lookout for – it’s like a Texas safari! Keep your eyes peeled for domestic animals like Angus cattle, miniature donkeys, and American bison, to wild animals like blackbuck antelope, fallow deer, axis deer, red deer, and oryx. We also have a few cute pets that you’ll want to visit with, including our friendly Border Collies, pygmy goats, and ringtail lemurs. We know that your four-legged friends would enjoy some time on the ranch too, so why not bring them? With 350 acres to explore, your pup is sure to think we’re one of the best pet-friendly places to stay in Texas.
Skip the Mess Hall and Eat What & Where You Want
Having fully-equipped kitchens in every accommodation allows you to eat the things you like and work best for today’s differing dietary needs. But if you would like us to take some of the work away, we’re happy to help! We have breakfast boxes that are in the fridge upon arrival, to be enjoyed at the guest’s leisure. In the afternoons, our delicious picnic lunch or cheese plate will hit the spot and are easy to take with you on your lunchtime excursion. Then for evenings, we offer gourmet dinners delivered right to your room – choose from entrées like Rotisserie Chicken, Pork Chops, Flat Iron Grilled Ribeye Steak or Salmon, served with all the fixin’s. On Friday and Saturday nights you can dine out at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant, just up the road from our Texas bed and breakfast. They offer a wonderful menu and wine list, served in a casual atmosphere. Or, you can enjoy the best part of adulthood – craft beer! Just 20 minutes up the road is our favorite watering hole, Huff Brewing Company. Not only is their beer top-notch, but they also offer delicious food on weekends, like burgers and tacos, for a relaxed evening out. Just check their facebook page to see what they have going on.
Come for the Summer Fun, Leave with the Memories!
You CAN create new memories of summer camp at our Texas guest ranch. With all that there is to do, you’ll be having fun in no time and forget about all of the adulting you need to do on a daily basis. Who knows, we may just add to the fun that it seems kids only get to enjoy when it’s hot outside, like water gun fights, slip n’ slides, or water balloon battles – so be sure to pack your swimsuit. If this all sounds like the ideal summer vacation to you, then invite your partner or group of friends to feel like kids again at our Texas summer camp for adults – we’ll keep the days hot and the lemonade cold!Book Now
