"Our stay here was better than I had imagined it would be - considering I spent over a month researching B & Bs to find the perfect one! Would anyone be upset if I said that the feather bed was my favorite? It was wonderful! The hot tub, sweet smelling shampoo, rocking chairs on the patio and cookies are all tied for second place. Thanks so much! We really did have a great stay"
"The Inn Above Onion Creek offered a wonderful retreat and yet it was so close to I-35! I didn't arrive until late at night and especially enjoyed seeing all the deer as I wound down the asphalt path. The long leaf pine bed is why I chose the Michaelis Room, which I was hesitant to opt out of in the morning. This led me to my next problem - the shower - I didn't want to get out of that either! I hope to return soon so that I may tour the "Inn" and allow myself more time to enjoy this retreat!"
"My husband and I came here to escape... What we got was a piece of heaven! From the moment we arrived, we were treated like honored guests. We love the room, the tub, the shower, the bed! We made new friends and enjoyed the deer and rabbits that are everywhere. The little touches, like the flower arrangements from the garden, really make this place spectacular. The food was delicious, the sheets soft and supple, the kitty sat on my lap and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This was our first time, but certainly won't be our last."

The Michaelis family began ranching in Texas in 1837. M.G. Michaelis was born July 16, 1864. In the 1890s he began raising purebred Shorthorn and Hereford cattle at the ranch in Mountain City in the Kyle area.
In 1934 Michaelis, who had been ranching in Coahuila, Mexico for ten years, was given two purebred Charolais bulls. The bulls were sent to the Kyle Ranch and a successful crossbreeding program was initiated and has continued throughout the years. In 1952 M.G. Michaelis, Jr., purchased the Pugibet herd of purebred domestic Charolais from the original French importers to Mexico. The Michaelis Ranch developed its strong herd of domestic Charolais which is well known around the world. The Michaelis Ranch is recognized statewide, nationwide, and internationally for its contributions to the ranching industry.
Another phase of Michaelis' early ventures was that of breeding Jacks and Jennets. M.G. Michaelis stated on his business cards that he had more Jennets in his herd than all the breeders in Texas combined. These animals were widely known and were a prize breed. Michaelis sold these donkeys to the Union of South Africa.
Max Gustav Michaelis died April 11, 1950. The tradition of purebred Charolais ranching today is carried on at the Kyle Ranch by his grandson, M.G. Michaelis III. The Michaelis Ranch is four miles west of Kyle on FM 150.
