Aggie Football home game schedule for 2016.  It is time to look for your place to stay, when you come see the Aggies play.  We are here for you.  Make a weekend out of it and enjoy the Rocking H.

Aggie home games are as follows:

Saturday, September 3rd vs. UCLA

We are only 30 miles away from College Station.  You can get away from the crowds and enjoy the peaceful country atmosphere.  We don’t have the constant sounds you will hear in the city.  We don’t have the excess lights that interfere with the night sky.  We have a great view of the stars on cloudless nights.  We have a number of areas to sit around and enjoy the outdoors .

If you like to walk around and explore, we have plenty of land for that.  Photo enthusiasts will have a number of opportunities to take pictures of scenery, birds, wild life, and sunsets.

If our schedule allows it, we can take you on a golf-cart ride (holds up to 6 people) around the ranch, where you may be able to see whitetail and axis deer.

We think you will have an experience that you won’t soon forget.  Do yourself a favor and book your reservation soon.

Stay here for College Station Activities

April 20th, 2016

So, you have an event to attend in College Station.  Parents weekend, Ring Dunk, Graduation, an Aggie sporting event (baseball, softball, football, track), or the many other things that will bring you to the area.  Would the Rocking H be a great place to stay for these events, we think so.

Day at the Rocking H

May 1st, 2010

I drove up from Houston on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.  I made my way through Hempstead, Chappell Hill, Brenham, and Somerville.  As I turned off highway 36 on county road 119, I knew I was getting closer to my country get away.

When I turned into the drive of the Rocking H, I saw they had been busy with the flower beds and grass.  Everything was manicured and looking great.  It is a welcoming feeling.

This is not my first time to visit the Rocking H.  I maintain the Inn Keepers website and I am their son.   When I parked my car, Judy was there to welcome me, just as if I was a guest.

After catching up with Dan and Judy, I was ready to go see the ranch.  We loaded up on the golf cart, and set out on the trails inside the high fence.  As we drove we saw a couple of deer, but it was a little early for them to be out in force.   We ran into the neighbors and talked with them.  I had brought my fishing rod, so I wanted to stop by the fishing hole to wet a hook.  Again it was early, so wet a hook was all I accomplished.

We returned to the Lodge and cleaned up for dinner.  After dinner, we took another ride to see the deer and fish some more.  The bucks were growing their antlers again.  They were already forking.  It is an exciting process to see those antlers grow larger every few weeks, when I get to see them.  This time at the fishing hole, we were able to catch a few bass.  They were fun to catch, and we released them to the water.

When we returned to the Lodge, I suggested we make a fire and sit out by the fire pit.  It wasn’t dark when we started.  We had a good time reliving old stories.  Just as the fire was getting down to embers, the stars started to pop up one after another.  When it finally, got completely dark the stars were everywhere and very bright.

It was a great day.  It reminded me of camping, when I was younger.

Fire pit and outdoor patio area

December 1st, 2009

At the Rocking H, we have created a new outdoor patio area and fire pit.  This gives you another area to enjoy when staying here.  There are a couple of tables and a number of chairs on this patio.

Are you ready for smores?

The fire pit can be used if approved by the inn keepers.   Note: There may be times when it will not be possible to use, like when it is too windy or in extremely dry conditions.

Hummingbirds

August 18th, 2008

We have been enjoying the company of a number of hummingbirds lately near the guest house.  We have 3 feeders near the covered breezeway, as well as some blooming flowers nearby.  We sit in the shade and watch these hummingbirds fly all over the place.  You get lost in the show.

To our amazement, they have flown through the breezeway while we sat there.  You can really hear those wings flapping.

We put a few pictures of them on the scenery page .
