For five generations, The Hommel family has called this rugged and scenic land in the heart of the Texas Panhandle home. Now we have opened our doors to offer you an opportunity to share life on a working Texas cattle ranch.

Frank and DeeDee Hommel invite you to come live the cowboy life!

A wake-up call delivered by songbirds will replace your alarm clock. The sweet savory smell of campfire coffee will lure you out of bed. The chuckwagon crew serves up a hearty Texas breakfast to provide a solid foundation for a day of work or relaxation.

Bar H activities are tailored to suit your interest and your budget.

Depending on the season, you’ll have the opportunity to watch the cowboys work, feed the livestock, mend fences, haul hay, move the herd and engage in dozens of other ranch chores. You can climb in the saddle and join in the work, or just watch.

 If you would rather spend your day relaxing, you can take a leisurely horseback ride across the rolling prairie, sit on the porch by the pool, take a stroll along the creek, hike or bike on one of our challenging trails, pitch horseshoes or wander down to the fishing hole.  Custom made wagons  provide comfortable tours of the ranch for guests who are not partial to a saddle.

At the end of the day, you can watch a magnificent sunset settle across the broad horizon. Mesquite-grilled steak and all of the trimmings wait at the chuckwagon. Homemade cobbler and a crackling campfire soothe the body and the mind as the crickets and the coyotes call, the stars begin to twinkle in the big clear Texas Sky.
 A climate controlled bunkhouse awaits guests ready for a good nights sleep.

Fantastic Birding! 60 species seen in one day on this ranch!
 Large Black - Tailed
Prairie Dog Town with Burrowing Owls.
Coyotes, Raccoons, Deer, Bobcats and Armadillos are just a few of the wild animals you are likely to encounter here.

The first part of May we hold our Spring Cattle Round Up. Spend 5 days and 4 nights camping out with the cowboys, working the calves and experiencing part of the true cowboy heritage.
Please call for dates.

The Canadian River Regulators provide Cowboy Action Shooting Matches the 2nd. Saturday of every month.

We also cater to hunters on over 5,500 acres of rangeland, offering  white tail and mule deer, wild hog, varmint/predators and some of the best wild bird hunting in the region.

Our Staff will be happy to help you plan your visit: We will customize your stay with us to suit your individual interest an needs. Whether you stop in for a few hours, a day or a couple of weeks, we’ll greet you with a smile and work hard to make you feel at home.
The Bar H extends a welcoming hand to family reunions, weddings, business retreats, and other group activities.
Rates at the Bar H are variable, depending on your itinerary and length of stay. The ranch is open year round, but reservations are required and activities may vary by season.
