We had a wonderful time staying in Michelle's Log Cabin. The well kept cabin was outfitted in an equine theme and had much reading material to choose from. There were muffins, coffee and tea. The cabin even exceeded the online description. The night sky was full of stars and the setting was so, peaceful, and quiet. The ranch is centrally located too many areas of central Texas including Bastrop, Smithville and Austin. We hope to come back again!
Great Cottage in the Woods
October 7, 2015
We loved the cottage, the muffins and the hospitality. It had everything we needed, and more. Very clean place and cozy. We'll recommend it to all our friends!

Perfect for a getaway in the country for complete R&R. Our cabin had all the comforts of home. Not much to do in area but that's what we wanted, total relaxation. I would definitely come back!
A Breath of Fresh Air
September 20, 2015
Getting away fem it all does not mean doing without, and rustic does not mean primitive. This lovely getaway puts the focus on wildlife and the stars. Not so much a bed and "breakfast", and you get a fully equipped kitchen along with coffee and muffins. Eat when you want. This is a horse farm, so feel free to wander around looking at the horses or investigate the chickens. Or just sit on the porch and rock. It's all good!

We had a terrific stay in Eagle's Nest Log Cabin last weekend. I woke up and went for an early morning walk and saw white tail deer and a beautiful sunrise.
The 9E is so charming!
September 15, 2015
We love staying at the 9e. This time we stayed in Eagle's Nest Log Cabin and the view in the morning with their yummy fair traded coffee is lovely. You may see the herd of Longhorns that call the 9E home. I had a wonderful night sleep and love the new sheets they are using out there now! We always love getting away from Austin city life and heading out Th the 9E for some peace and relaxation!
After a hectic week the Eagle's Nest Cabin at the 9e was wonderful on Friday evening. Peaceful and relaxing are words that come to mind.
Reviews of 9E Ranch
November 25, 2015
We had a wonderful visit to the 9E Ranch. Sitting on haystacks, wondering the property and enjoying the comforts of the Lone Star Cabin were all highlights. Despite very chilly weather we treed down the Colorado River in kayaks together and took in the charm of Bastrop. The boys were pleased to be able to handle Ginger and Copper what darling little horses they are!!! May thanks for a pleasant getaway! Clay and Marc
Escape (June 2, 2015)
What a wonderful peaceful place to stay! Highly recommended this place to anyone needs a break from the hectic pace
of life! Our cabin was cozy and comfortable. The ranch is a great place to explore, enjoy the animals and stargaze at night.
EXCEPTIONAL! (June 2, 2015)
We stayed in the Daisy cabin this past weekend for a wedding shower and our experience was exceptional! We felt the relaxation of being away from Houston. My children enjoyed running and playing and visiting the animals. We sat outside on our deck and drank in the silence. We left renewed and at peace. Our stay was exceptional.
TREEHOUSE IN THE PINES (May 13, 2015)
My stay in the Eagles' Nest Log Cabin afforded me with an opportunity to live out one of my lifelong fantasies of staying in a tree house in the woods. I knew I was coming to a rustic cabin on the 9E Ranch, but the tree house quality of this cabin and the panorama of green really took my by surprise. The cabin was perched on a hill and had windows on all sides. The views were framed by the kind of tall pine trees one would expect to find in the Rocky Mountains. Then they open into the rolling green hills of ranch la land speckled with Longhorn cattle and woods filled with wildlife of every kind. I couldn't have picked a better time of year for my stay at the 9E Ranch. The temperature was cool enough to keep my windows open both day and night. I was recharged by the sounds of the night, crickets, raindrops and birds. I was able to spot the first painted bunting of the season.
Michelle CABIN STAY (May 4, 2015)
The cabin and surrounding land was beautiful and very relaxing. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and wished we had more time to explore the 9E Ranch and the trails.
AWESOME TIME AT THE 9E RANCH! ( May 4, 2015)
Our family needed some relaxation and decided to spend the weekend at the 9E Ranch. It was wonderful; we stayed in the Lone Stay Log Cabin and our daughter really loved it because she had her own area in the loft. We were able to play multiple games of monopoly together and it really took us away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. Te 9E Ranch is the best place to relax in the country.
GREAT CABINS! (April 22, 2015)
My husband and I have stayed at the 9E RAnch twice now. Both time we were very pleased. The cabins are comfortably decorated. Always clean. Great personal touches like fess muffins in the fridge, soft sheets, coffee, and homemade soaps.
We will be going back! Thanks for the great Texas hospitality!
9E RANCH (April 22, 1015)
Hospitable hosts at wonderful, working ranch near Bastrop, Texas. Hike the 300 acres and enjoy wildflowers, longhorns, horses, wild turkeys, deer and other critters. A perfect getaway from the hectic life most any time of year!
RESTFUL RETREAT! (April 22, 2015)
Great views from the Daisy cabin! Love the trails & delicious muffins. This was our third visit and our second stay in this cabin. The owners are delightful and very helpful. Great, unique experience.
We have been sharing this slice of space between heaven and earth with the Bohls for over 12 years. We try to make a visit at least annually. The really neat thigh about 9E is that there is nothing to do......if you don't want to do it! This trip we never left the property.....except for dinner. We usually visit Smithville, or Bastrop drying the day but this time the weather was perfect for lying under the tall pines and listening to the wind move across the land....so we did. There isn't a more relaxing place on earth! We love the Eagles' Nest and have stayed there all but one time. The place is super clean, private and with a view that just won't stop! We miss Joan's cooking, but the muffins are a delight. I can't tell you all the wonderful memories we have at the 9E, they are just endless. In Bastrop you can find an assortment of restaurants to meet anyone taste's desire. Antique shops are plentiful in Smithville and in the spring Bluebonnets are everywhere. I know we will be back.....it's at the top of our list when we need to push tbs pause button on our hectic lives. You should too..... and visit 9E!
DAISY COTTAGE WAS SUPERB (March 14, 2015)
The Longhorns and mini donkeys greeted us when we arrived. After they wondered off a few deer even came to visit before sunset. We had a very, relaxing, and peaceful visit. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place. Connie Elliott
LOVELY, HEART WARMING, PEACEFUL BIT OF HEAVEN!
I love this place. This was my 3rd visit to the 9E. The first time I went for some quiet time with just my dog and stayed in Michelle's cabin. Such a sweet cabin, warm relaxing, beautiful, and very comfortable! The next 2 times I went with my mother and sister and stayed in the Daisy as it has 2 bedrooms. The views of the miniature donkeys, pet Longhorns, and fields were fabulous! The cottage itself is quite charming with everything you need to have a wonderful time. Kent and Joan are beautiful, beautiful people if you choose to interact but give you all the privacy you desire. On all 3 of my visits, I never left the ranch!!!. The trails throughout the ranch are beautiful and a great way to commune with nature. Plus all the cabins have great porches and lots of windows to enjoy the surrounding beauty. If you are looking for a sweet place to commune with friends, family, yourself and nature, this place is wonderful. If you want to go out, there are quite a few, nice, and fun restaurants and bars in Bastrop with live music on weekends only 15 minutes away.

COUNTRY RETREAT (October 4, 2015)

A FUN TIME FOR ALL AGES .......RAIN OR SHINE!
The ranch is beautiful and the resident animals are fun to observe no matter what the weather is doing. On our recent visit with our one-and-a-half year old granddaughter the weather was overcast and rainy. This did not deter our hosts from taking us on a fun tour to see the miniature horses, longhorns, miniature donkeys and chickens. Our granddaughter loved getting up close too many kinds of chickens in their coop! Our hosts also treated us to an impromptu tea party back at their house which was fun for the little one. We have stayed here often and love it!

Very Nice Place
The wife and I spent 2 nights here a few weeks back. We couldn't have been any more satisfied. The Eagle Nest cabin is perfect for 2 people. Beautiful view. They supplied tasty muffins and coffee It's very, quiet, and peaceful. Maybe a 10 minute drive to Bastrop. Both Joan & Kent were very, nice, and helpful.
