You will find plenty to do at the TWIN ELM! The Twin Elm Ranch is just right for families, reunions, youth groups, business meetings, western-style vacations, weddings, and private parties.

There are rodeos every Friday night starting in April, ending the Friday before Labor Day (weather permitting) at no charge to Twin Elm guests. Everyone who wants to ride – gets to ride! Our experienced cowboys will saddle you up with a horse that is just right for you. Even youngsters not old enough to hit the trails get to ride. If you find a few minutes between activities, take a dip in our pool. It’s open year ’round. Above all we want you to relax – watch the animals or just take a nap in a hammock.

In the evening, we’ll gather ’round the campfire. There will be plenty of marshmallows for everyone to roast.

Don’t miss our Rodeo. Every Rodeo begins with a Star Spangled Grand Entry – then the action begins! See bull riding, steer riding, barrel racing and roping at its best. We offer lodging, meals, horseback riding, and swimming in our pool near the rooms or you can ride the rapids of the crystal clear, spring fed, Medina River which runs through the ranch. There are campfires and hayrides for added fun. You can enjoy nature’s lovely breezes atop our hill but bring along a sweater for cool evenings and beach towels for the river. We have a recreation area for games and TV but no telephones or TV in the rooms. Office hours are 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. The telephone is answered via voice-mail after 5:00 P.M.
