Named Best Guest Ranch by The Official Best of Texas in 2011, Beaumont Ranch transports imaginations to the Old West with cowboy-inspired adventures along 800 acres of verdant grassland. Visitors age 7 and older begin the two-hour experience by saddling up a trusty steed for the trail ride, during which a ranch-savvy guide leads the way past glittering lakes, leafy trees, and blooming stetson orchards. A 30-minute roping lesson treats participants to a professional demonstration before they hone their own lasso craft by practicing on a stationary target. Greenhorn gauchos also glean the age-old approach to herding cattle as they gently persuade majestic longhorns to move by anticipating their positions and blocking the sports-radio reception beaming through their horns.
Beaumont Ranch is the realization of a dream. Ron Beaumont, the founder and family patriarch, was enamored with the cowboy lifestyle from a very young age, and envisioned himself one day running a ranch like the ones he saw in his favorite western movies. The vision came to fruition in July of 1997, when he and his wife Linda opened their 800 acres of land to the public, allowing visitors to live like cowboys and mingle with their herds of Texas longhorns and horses.
Today, three Beaumont generations live on the ranch, and the guest accommodations have expanded from a 22-room bed-and-breakfast to a 32-room facility boasting an events center, a common area, and a bunkhouse with an additional 48 beds. Well-rested patrons can explore the natural prairies that stretch as far as the eye can see on the transportation of their choice: ATV, horse, or even zipline. After a day spent riding bucking broncos and roping cattle, visitors can kick off their cowboy boots and remove their 10-gallon hats to enjoy pampering serenity at the ranch spa. Here, the aestheticians soothe weary cowpokes' muscles with massages and body scrubs, which were what kept John Wayne so cool under pressure.
