The West 1077 Guest Ranch is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country only 10 miles from Bandera, the “Cowboy Capital of the World” and a quick hour from San Antonio International Airport.
West 1077 was established on an old cattle ranch and retains the charm and simple way of life of the Old West. However, with all the comfort and amenities it offers this is now THE place where the old west meets today's modern outdoor adventurer.
The Different Ranch
West 1077 isn’t the typical dude ranch: no mass tourism, no schedule to follow! Our ranch is small by design and you won’t find crowds at West 1077, just a peaceful and refreshing atmosphere in a stunningly beautiful setting. But peaceful does not mean boring. Study wildlife, hike, run trails, go mountain biking, try horseback riding, take part in our special seminars and meet new friends. There is always something to do.
Hill Country State National Area, a State Park of 5,400 acres adjoins our 230 acres. With direct access to the State Park and about 50 miles of trails to explore, the West 1077 Guest Ranch is the perfect getaway for anyone who loves nature at its best and enjoys any outdoor activities.
Hitting the Trails!
We have the best trails in the Texas Hill Country! The West 1077 property with its own 230 acres has direct access to the "Hill Country State Natural Area", a state park with over 5,400 acres of breathtaking scenery and a trail system with almost ?50 miles to explore.
Whether you are a competitive trail runner, a hard core mountain biker, or just want to go for a peaceful walk, you will not find a better place to base yourself for an energizing and exciting vacation amongst elemental nature.
Our combined properties are ideally suited for every skill level from casual hiking for pleasure and fitness to serious training for extreme running or biking. Can't bring your own bicycle? No problem - rent one of our mountain bikes and you're ready to go!
The adjoining State Natural Area provides more than 40 miles of well marked trails, making this one of Texas’s premier spots for every kind of outdoors lover. Canyons snake and wind up to 2000 feet in elevation and spring fed creeks meander alongside wandering, low-lying paths.
On the ranch you are free to explore limestone bluffs and fossil beds or explore the color-coded trails across the hills, following old cattle trails at your leisure. Discover oak shaded picnic areas and stop to rest while you breathe and take in the view. No traffic, no noise, no hassles.
After a long hike, bike trip or trail run, refresh yourself in our swimming pool or enjoy a spectacular Texas sunset from a rocking chair on the porch. And if you’ve still got energy to burn, we have ping-pong, badminton and horseshoes.

What about other meals?
We do not serve lunch or dinner at West 1077 (meals for groups on request). This gives our guests the chance to enjoy their activities or explore the nearby area attractions at their leisure. We find that our guests appreciate the fact that they don’t have to be back at a set time or miss a meal they’ve paid for in advance.
However, we offer plenty of alternatives. Bandera is just 10 miles away and there is quite a selection of restaurants to choose. But if you prefer to stay at the ranch, you are welcome to use the microwave in the lodge or grill outside. All cabins have a refrigerator where you can keep any food or drinks you bring along.
