Set in southwest Texas near Big Bend National Park, this historic ranch established in 1857 is set amid 30,000 acres of plateaus, gorges, red mesas and rocky peaks. The enclave consists of several castle-like adobe forts and Spanish-style dwellings housing the guest quarters. The main compound features an outdoor pool and haciendas trimmed by inviting verandas. Saltillo-tile floors and adobe corner fireplaces accent the 24 accommodations, with the Master Suite augmented by a separate living room. All rooms lack phones and TVs. Activities include horseback rides, catch-and-release fishing, skeet shooting and visits to Big Bend. Amenities are highlighted by a restaurant serving traditional Mexican dishes, a fitness center and a heated outdoor swimming pool with a hot tub.
