Located in Schleicher County, where the rolling Texas Hill Country meets the romantic vistas of West Texas, the X Bar Ranch is a nature retreat that is truly one-of-a-kind.  Steeped in tradition and rife with ranching heritage, you'll find rolling, open, uninterrupted hills at the X Bar, alongside sweeping sunsets, rambling trails and unparalleled access to nature.

The X Bar Ranch Nature Retreat lies approximately 20 miles west of Eldorado, Texas and only 8 miles north of Interstate 10.  Its location makes it a perfect stopping place for those traveling to and from far West Texas, including Alpine, Big Bend National Park, Ft. Davis and Marfa.  And - for those wating to make a longer stay of it - this is the perfect weekend or family getaway for those seeking solitude and a natural environment while still enjoying the charm of the nearby small communities.

At just under three hours from San Antonio and around three and a half hours from Austin, the X Bar offers the best of both regions it sits astride - the heritage and ruggedness of West Texas and the lush rolling vegetation of the Texas Hill Country.  Stop on by and experience the X Bar for yourself.
