What guests are saying...

Our family of 5 had an awesome Spring Break at the Miracle Springs Ranch. While we loved the spacious and comfortable lodge, the grounds stole the show. The lakes were perfect for kayaking and fishing, the trails for hiking and biking, the large grassy areas for throwing frisbees and baseball, the outdoor areas for lounging and grilling, and the pool and hot tub for reflecting on our day under a sky full of stars. Topped off by some of the best hosts (and feline friend Simba!), it was a family vacation set apart. We're already looking forward to returning.
What an amazing place! I was a little hesitant that place was not going to be that clean because of its remoteness but I was completely wrong - this place was amazing! It was very..VERY clean, everything works perfectly (Wi-Fi, hot tub, tv, etc.) and you have the whole property to yourself! The hosts are close by in the event we needed anything. This place is perfect for big families or parties - so much do!
Beautiful land near Garner and Lost Maples. We were a group of 5 adults and 1 toddler, and there was plenty to keep everyone entertained from kayaks, the pool, multiple grill options, and plenty of space to walk/explore. The owners gave us a wonderful tour, including a small cave our little one loved!
What a magical place. Our family met at Miracle Springs Ranch for Thanksgiving holiday getaway. The beautiful hill country setting and nature surround you in a perfect location hidden between the hills. Even though the outdoor temperature was a bit cold we utilized the pool, jacuzzi, and the spring fed ponds. A truly one of a kind experience. We had a great experience booking through Backroads Reservations. From communication to working out the details of our trip we were very pleased with the level of service received. Thanks again!
Beautiful views in the heart of Texas with high end amenities and comforts of home. We spent a wonderful time at the ranch, swimming in the lake and pool. Our little one especially loved diving into the 16' deep pool over and over! It was the perfect getaway for our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Our family of 10; including grandparents, parents and 4 children ages 2-10 years stayed at the Miracle Springs Ranch Lodge for a week in March. We had a wonderful time with plenty of hiking trails, fishing and swimming in the spring fed lakes, kayaking, dark skies, quiet, and serene views. Our girls caught their first fish and learned to safely kayak on their own. The Lodge is basic and very clean, bedrooms and bathrooms are comfy bunkhouse style. The kitchen is well equipped with top of the line appliances for enjoying meals together. The large pool is over the top with waterfall, fireplace, outdoor kitchen and view to match. The host family was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable, adding to our enjoyment of the ranch. Communication with Backroads Country was always timely and helpful every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier and everyone wants to go back!
