What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Nestled among the sloping hills of Sonora where the Hill Country meets the Chihuahuan Desert, you will find a place of unmatched luxury. Known as a premier trophy hunting destination in Texas, The JL Bar Ranch and Resort is much more than a hunters lodge. Elegant cabins offer a peaceful escape from your daily stresses, while the fine dining, more than 900 bottle wine cellar and other luxurious on-site amenities, will put you on cloud nine. Featuring its own private airport and a world-renowned chef, The JL Bar Ranch and Resort is perfect for corporate retreats, concerts, weddings and other special events. Much of your stay at the ranch will be in your very own private cabin, appointed with custom wood furniture that showcases West Texas distinct style. Each of the resorts 16 cabins provides an intimate and tranquil refuge, with space for two to five guests and a variety of bed configurations. These cabins are ideal for both romantic getaways and hunting parties. When you are not relaxing in your cabin, you will probably be enjoying the rustic elegance of the Main Lodge. Savor the palate-pleasing seasonal dishes on the fine dining menu. Indulge your inner oenophile in the wine cellar. Play a friendly game of pool, swim in the infinity pool or simply relax by one of the two fireplaces. Getting some rest and relaxation at the Main Lodge is easy, no matter how you enjoy spending your time. The ranch's scenic location is undoubtedly part of its charm, but that does not mean it's hard to reach. Along with its location, just one mile off of I-10, it has its own private airport that can accommodate planes as large as a Gulfstream G550. With posh accommodations, gorgeous scenery and epic hunting adventures, The JL Bar Ranch and Resort is a great place to host your wedding, corporate retreat, concert, anniversary celebration or any other special event. No matter why you are visiting, the resort has everything you need for an unforgettable stay.
