General Info


What makes the X Bar so special?  It's semi-remote nature coupled with full amenities, of course.  While the X Bar is located far from large cities and some 20 miles from the nearest town, its fully furnished cabins and Round House offer guests an incredible opportunity to reconnect with nature in total comfort.  In a similar fashion to bed and breakfasts, the X Bar Ranch provides its guests with unique lodging options and opportunities for activity.



All guests must make reservations in advance of their intended visit.  All reservations provide access to the Live Oak Lodge.  All facilities have air conditioning, heating and hot water - no daily maid service is provided.  In-room linens and towels are always provided in each house/cabin.  For large groups, please specify the number of extra towels and/or linens your group may require.  

All guests must sign a release of liability form upon arrival to the ranch acknowledging that any potentially hazardous activity including swimming, biking, hiking, etc. are conducted at the participants own risk.  Minors must have a waiver signed by a guardian.
