Visit our frequently asked questions page to get explaining answers to our most common questions.
What are the rates?
Each Spread Oaks Ranch adventure is custom-tailored to our discerning guests’ specific requests. Please contact Business Manager Tim Soderquist at [email protected] or at (281) 814-5442 so he may provide you with the best options for your group.
How long does it take to get to the ranch from Houston?
From downtown Houston or from Houston Hobby (HOU), it takes about 90 minutes to arrive at the lodge.
From George Bush International Airport (IAH), it takes an hour and 45 minutes.
But, despite the proximity to the city, when you arrive, you’ll feel like you are light years from the stress of city life.
Is there an airstrip nearby?
Private aircraft can fly into Bay City Regional Airport, about a 25-minute drive from the ranch. We can arrange for transportation to and from the ranch.
Is four-wheel drive necessary to reach the ranch?
No. Follow our well-maintained roads to the lodge and prepare to enjoy our 5,500-acre playground. During your stay at the ranch, we have appropriate all-terrain vehicles to take you wherever you need to go.
Can I bring my own dogs?
Yes. We welcome your dogs, and we have plenty of kennel space to make sure that they are as comfortable as you are at the ranch.
Are drones allowed?
We believe in ethical and sustainable hunting and wildlife management practices. Drones are welcome for aerial photography and other creative uses when not in hunting season. We want you to experience the best that Texas has to offer in the most timeless way possible, so we do not use them during the hunt.
I have been told to setup a retreat for our group, but I don’t have any experience as an event planner. Can you help?
We work with seasoned, professional event planners that specialize in creating memorable trips for all types of groups — families, executives, friends. Let us know your goals for the group, and we’ll suggest an itinerary that will exceed your expectations.
Are you able to accommodate a member of my party who has physical limitations?
Our hunting guides can ensure that a guest can step into a blind straight from an ATV. Nearly all areas of the lodge, casitas, bunkhouse, game room and grounds are accessible by the wheelchair-bound or mobility-impaired, and our staff is at the ready to ensure all guests enjoy their Spread Oaks Ranch experience to the fullest of their abilities.
