    We had a lovely stay! This particular spot is right near the pool and so comfortable. Everything was nice and clean. The overall property is just stunningly beautiful. We spent a good amount of time in the pool but also enjoyed the hammock by the pond! We were there for a wedding but will definitely be back for a weekend just to enjoy.

    We spent the weekend on the property for moms birthday! It was the perfect weekend getaway . Darrell was a great host. He had timely responses to questions, very accommodating, and built us the perfect fire in the fire pit. The house was clean and comforting. You could tell the houses and property was well taken care of of. We has a lovely and peaceful experience in the ranch! We will definitely return, and highly recommend staying here! Thank you for the hospitality @ Rising star!

    Let me begin by saying that the facility is beautiful. The problem is…the facility is not being properly maintained. Upon our arrival, the refrigerator in cabin was not on, the hot water heater was not on, the cabin looked like it had not been cleaned. When we inquired about the hot water heater, a young man entered our cabin and flipped the switch to turn it on. In reality, he turned it off, and we had no hot water for a shower that first night. The grounds were not freshly mowed and most of the flower beds were in terrible condition. Dried up zinnias filled several of the flower beds. The parking was terrible. Upon arrival we parked in a cemented area a little distance from our cabin. But to our dismay, the host informed us that we would have to move our cars because his family was coming in for the weekend and that is where THEY parked. We, the “paying guests” had to move our cars to a gravel drive quite a distance from our cabins to accommodate his teenagers. There was no sidewalk from parking area to cabins AND there was no lighting in that area. We had to walk through un-mowed grass on uneven ground with NO nigh time lighting. Our group had 5 cabins rented. 6 of us were aged between 74 – 83. The pictures seen on the VRBO website show a beautiful outdoor kitchen space. It is beautiful, BUT we were told that none of the appliances work. We had planned on using the space to cook for our group but that was not possible. On the last night of our stay, we were all sitting in the outdoor space enjoying the cool breeze when the host, his friend and several teenagers passed by our area on their way to light a fire in the fire pit. The smoke from the firepit blew directly over to our area and that ended our relaxing evening. We had to call it a night. There is a note on the cabin door with instructions for use of the facility. Upon checkout we were requested to strip the beds, place all linens/towels on a pile, take all trash to the dumpster AND wash/dry/put up all dishes that we may have used. Keep in mind, we paid a Cleaning fee plus a service fee, not sure what those fees provided for us. When I removed the linens from the bed, I discovered a large, horrible stain on the bed pad. We will definitely NOT be staying there again and I could NOT recommend it to anyone. If you are looking for a relaxing venue where the host caters to his customers, this is NOT the place.

    Great Stay

    Rockin Ranch was an amazing place to get away and enjoy the outdoors! The property was large and secluded if you have enough people to rent out the whole property. The stables and animals close by are an added bonus!

    We came up for quick getaway, and immediately felt at home upon arrival. We stayed in the Rising Star cabin and it was perfect! Had everything we needed. It’s the cabin located near the pool. Kids loved the easy access, and so did I! The grounds were so neatly kept, and just beautiful. Kids got to see emus up close and personal, fed baby goats, pet horses, had a hay ride! It was the perfect weekend, and we can’t wait to get back!

    We had so much fun staying at the Rockin Star Ranch! From the minute we stepped onto the property, our host made sure he was available to our EVERY need , literally 24/7! The cottage was super clean, the towels and linens smelled so fresh, and the entire property was amazingly maintained. We had access to the entire ranch and all of the fences, enclosures, stables and animal habitats were SO well taken care of - I was really impressed! We spent most of our time being lazy, playing ping-pong, and sitting by the fire pit- but there were lots of other available things to do like fishing, a hot tub and pool, a covered outdoor kitchen with a sitting area, darts, horseshoes and all sorts of animals to see/pet. This would be a really fun place to take kids!

    Fun Experience - Activities for adults and children. Close to Houston but a different world.

    I treated my two elementary aged children to a few days of virtual learning in the country at Rockin Star Ranch. The kids were able to easily explore the farm-fishing, swimming, feeding animals, playing on the see-saw and riding bikes throughout the day after each class and when they finished their assignments. It made the process of virtual learning so much more enjoyable. We can’t wait to return!

    This was a great little get-away from Houston for some peace and quiet in the country. We brought the children and they enjoyed swimming, exploring the property, and interacting with the animals. Darrell was an EXCELLENT host and accommodated our needs during the stay with promptness. We will be returning someday soon!

    My husband and I loved visiting for our anniversary. The cabin was perfect for 2. If you have kids, I believe the loft sleeps 2 as well. We loved being 15-20 minutes from downtown Brenham and the seclusiveness of the ranch. Darell, the owner, is very friendly, quick to respond, and welcoming. It is the perfect weekend getaway from Houston. Overall, we will be back!!

    Loved it so much we have already booked our 2nd stay

    Property is gorgeous, cabins are very clean and well appointed. Working with the property contact (Darrell) was a delight. If you are looking for seclusion, yet still 20 minutes from a small town where you can eat or shop, this place is perfect. Wildlife, pool, outdoor kitchen, its everything my family needs for a nice quiet get away.

    I love this ranch as my quick getaway from Houston anytime I just want to get out of town for a few days! It’s only an hour away, so incredibly convenient. There’s plenty to do on the property, and it’s a quick jaunt into town, if you want a little more action and noise. Darrel, the host, is always so accommodating and enjoyable - doing everything he can to make everyone feel welcome and at home. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rockin Star!
