Cibolo Fort of the Bison
The Cibolo Fort is our largest structure, with adjoining haciendas accommodating bookings for 24 guest rooms. The rooms are only steps from the ranch’s complimentary amenities, including the pool, hot tub, multimedia room, library and more.
This fort sits in a lush landscape along an intermittent creek. The creek and surrounding terrain are inside a caldera – an ancient volcanic crater – created 32 million years ago. Fed by natural springs, this geography is favorable for agriculture in an otherwise rugged environment. The fort was built to protect pioneer Milton Faver’s spring-fed farmlands from raids by Apaches, Comanches and bandits.
Cienega Fort at the Marsh
The Cienega Fort is a self-contained complex accommodating private bookings of up to 25 guests in the fort and the adjoining hacienda’s 10 guest rooms. Rooms are available for group bookings and are suitable for private gatherings.
This fort delivers all of the modern amenities, plus a private swimming pool, hot tub, hammocks, multimedia room, professional kitchen and large dining room.
Morita Fort at the Little Mulberry Tree
The Morita Fort is truly a step back in time, offering a break from technology with an attractive one-bedroom cottage in a romantic setting. With a generator for electricity, you’ll find yourself settling into a peaceful rhythm. Enjoy evenings by gas lamps, with air conditioning supplied by the cool breezes. Stay warm on cool nights with a gas log stove. Enjoy dining up the road at Cibolo Creek Ranch or arrange to pick up your meals for a truly private experience.
The Morita Fort remains less than fully restored, at the request of the Texas State Historical Society. The fort has no roof and guests stay in an adjoining 19th century cottage.
