Rivendell Ranch Texas Scrapbooking Retreat back porch

- What a fantastic place for our family reunion! What fun to set up the table on the porch and eat out there. We made wonderful memories with the grandchildren!

- What a sweet house. How comfy, but elegant. Perfect for us. We'll be back next year!!

- Sitting on the back porch at 7:30 am, there is already a beautiful morning breeze with just a touch of cool on the air. As the sun fliters down through the trees and the birds are beginning to sing their greeting to the day, the air just begins to hint at the lazy summer day yet to come. One imagines, however briefly, that you've taken a step back in time and this was how life was meant to be lived. I did not come far, only from the bustling city and hour away, but feel as if I've traveled to another time, where life's stresses simply melt away. I see myself here again and again.

(P.S. a remembrance of Rivendell would not be complete without mention of the ranch's secret treasure, the ranch managers, Skip and Julie. Their hospitality and generosity have made our visit most memorable. Special mention must be made of Julie's banana pudding; rich, sinful, decadent, and all together wonderful.)

- Thank you so much for the memories. This trip couldn't have been better.

- What a wonderful time we had. Absolutely perfect! We hope to come back someday soon.

- What an awesome place to have our family's annual memorial Day bash. From the pool, to the volleyball, to the pastoral settings, we were in heaven from the moment we arrived until we-sadly-packed our cars. We are already thinking about our next trip to Rivendell. Until, happy trails and God bless you.

- What a wonderful time at Rivendell Ranch. My husband is in the Air Force and will be leaving for Iraq next month. he asked me for a family reunion before he left. Our four boys didn't want to leave Rivendell and are already asking to come back again soon. We made wonderful memories on the porch, catching fish, and playing in the pool. When the boys begin to miss their dad, I can always pull out the pictures and remember the laughs, hugs and kisses throughout our stay at Rivendell. Oh, if these walls could talk, you would be in stitches! We will return when Daddy gets home...see you soon!

- A large wrap around porch with plenty of seating invites you to sit and watch the river flow, the cows graze, the magnificent sunsets, and the numerous birds that make Rivendell Ranch their home.

- We enjoyed everything, from the pool, table tennis, foosball, hanging out on the porch, fishing and, of course, eating the great food provided by Julie. It couldn't have been a better vacation! We'll be back.
