Our second time to stay here. Service was not very professional. A lot of young, green employees who were nice as can be, but clearly not polished like you would expect at a top lodge. The lodge is more suited for executive retreat types than individuals. The rooms are so-so. Fixtures were broken in our room and the air conditioning... More

We recently stayed two nights under the package where you get breakfast and a three-course dinner along with your room. It is an amazing value, particularly given the quality of the restaurant. I loved it so much I can't wait to return for every birthday, anniversary, random Tuesday ... Random thoughts: -- We had dinner here in 2000 and thought... More

Rough Creek Lodge was a wonderful retreat from the world. We arrived during a Texas thunderstorm and were plagued by high winds the entire time. However, this was absolutely the most beautiful place from which to enjoy the Texas landscape, severe weather and all! We can't wait to return during the summer! The food was excellent - particularly breakfast and... More

We'd heard a lot about Rough Creek from friends who had visited. We only stayed one night, but we had a relaxing stay. In a nutshell: Rooms - Very nice, excellent bathrooms, great porches overlooking the water Food - OK, not great. Felt very let down by the food. Activities - A lot to do - fishing, hiking, biking, golf... More

This place surpassed any place I have ever visited! Top notch staff, luxurious accommodations - well worth the money.

I stayed in the new cabin in the woods. It was fabulous! Great quite spot among some pretty spectacular old oak trees. Deer were everywhere. The Cabin is a little more rustic than the main lodge but very comfortable with sleeping for at least 5. A nice screen porch, hammock & built in BBQ. There is also a loft area... More

Stayed here over spring break 2005 with the family (2 kids). I am probably biased because they upgraded our room for no reason. Very relaxing time. Great room. Great Staff. Nice pool and EXTREMELY quiet surroundings (at the edge of nowhere). There is plenty to do if you enjoy outdoor activities. 4-wheeling, bike rides, tennis, paint ball, shooting range, etc.... More

The Rough Creek Lodge was recently named "the best lodge in North America - 2005" by Conde Nast Johansens and the title is well-deserved. About the only thing rough about a trip to the Lodge is the access roads off Highway 67. My firm took a short retreat to the Lodge and had a great time. It is a great... More

I don't want to be picky, but at these prices, I really don't expect to find peeling paint, dusty table tops, only two skimpy bath towels and crickets in my closet! We were similarly unimpressed with the restaurant. The food is presented beautifully but was curiously flavorless. Maybe the new owners will look into the maintenance issues and find better... More
