I rarely saw a phone out, it was great. The staff here was amazing. Kathlyn KNOWS about customer service, let me tell you. She had every detail covered....

My family and I recently spent two nights at Twin Elm, and were devastated when it was time to leave. Manager Kathlyn was a wonderful host - my five-year-son fell in love with her immediately - and she couldn't do enough to help or make us feel welcome. From horse-riding through the beautiful countryside, to home-cooked meals and roasting marshmallows...

This place is awesome. Kathlyn and the staff went way beyond the call to make my stay more enjoyable than I could have imagined. The grounds are well kept, and beautiful. My stay was in the rv park and it's one of the best I've visited. Walking the grounds at night left me with memories of country living as a...

We stayed at Twin Elm Guest Ranch during the Thunder in the Hill Country bike rally. The manager, Kathlyn, went out of her way to not only accommodate our entire group (27 of us!!), but to go over and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, enjoyable, and that everyone felt very welcomed!
