Herding cattle at Beaumont Ranch in Texas


Beaumont Ranch

A cozy guest room at Beaumont Ranch in Texas

Riding, roping and hot rock massages? Welcome to the 21st-century cattle ranch experience. With the historic Chisholm Trail running through it, the 800-acre Beaumont Ranch (less than an hour from Dallas) features its own 1880s Western town, real cowboys herding Longhorn cattle, horseback riding lessons and the full-service Beau Monde Spa. You're welcome to participate in cattle roundups or whoop it up in the Lone Star Barn, which boasts a mechanical bull and Friday night fish fries. Although the property is Texas-sized, the accommodations are cozy, with bed-and-breakfast style rooms and a communal bunkhouse. Once you're done practicing calf roping or horsemanship, you can unwind with reflexology, a salt body polish or Moor mud wrap. No doubt Dale Evans would approve.
