Architecturally, this property wins our vote. The three restored, 1850s adobe forts that make up the accommodations feature cottonwood beams, Saltillo tile floors and period antiques. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the ranch sits on more than 30,000 acres in the Chinati and Cienega Mountains, and it's more than just a place for travelers to unwind. Longhorn are raised on the range here, and horseback rides meander through mesas and canyons, while evening Star Parties reveal the wonders of the vast West Texas sky. Gourmet meals are included in the rates. Notable on-site attractions include: pioneer ruins and accessible Native American caves.
