Vernon, Texas

Get a cabin view. Sit in the rocker on your back porch. Panoramic views are breathtaking. Watch the sunset or as we did, possible watch a Texas thunderstorm. You can see for miles. The restaurant food is good. We had a large group and I think we overwhelmed them with a last minute reservation. The infinity pool is lovely with great views. The wildflowers were in bloom everywhere and the weather was beautiful. Get away from the stress and experience an upscale western experience.

Myself and a friend had a wonderful two night stay at the Wildcatter Ranch. We are from the UK and had been driving around Texas. For me, our stay at the Wildcatter was the highlight of our trip. Our room was comfortable and well appointed, the hot tub in the grounds with infinity-pool views across the countryside was my happy place and the steakhouse at the ranch serves fantastic food in the evenings. The cowboys Eddie and Sean gave us brilliant experiences; feeding the longhorns, giving us a tour of the ranch and teaching us roping, tomahawk throwing and archery. They were excellent tutors; encouraging, entertaining, warm and patient! Rocky in reception went out of her way to help us when we had a car hire company nightmare on departure and, with the help of her colleague Debbie, resolved our situation. We are so grateful for the assistance we received that day. The staff at the Wildcatter made our experience truly special. I can't thank them enough and would love to go back.
