A night at The Lodge at Fossil Rim was a lovely experience. The remote rural setting among the rolling hills of Somervell County was breathtaking. I really enjoyed sitting on the long second-story veranda reading a book and watching the Addax antelope grazing nearby. One lonely little Fallow Deer hung around for a while--and after dark I could hear the... More

What a great place to stay!! We booked the Egret room and the Hummingbird room in August 2015. They're side by side and share a close bathroom. Both rooms have sliding glass doors that open onto a deck that has a great view of Fossil Rim. We loved having a living room where our kids could hang out in the... More

Staying at the fossil rim lodge. It's very clean the and staff is very friendly. We have seen many different kinds of deer just looking out from our room and the eating area. Definitely a different environment for those not looking to stay at a hotel. It is community bath so if that bothers you look into the cabins.

We stayed in the "tents" by the watering hole (we were in cheetah). This was a great adventure with our two and four year old. The setting is very pretty with views of the watering hole. The cabins are well spaced out and the shared wooden seats to watch the watering hole are nicely set away from the cabins so... More

Stayed here in the Hummingbird room for 1 night after our tour. It was wonderful. There was only one other room rented that night and they were upstairs. We had the place to ourselves for most of the day. Just outside the fence, animals are grazing everywhere. The inside of the lodge is very spacious and beautiful. Our room was... More

We had a wonderful experience staying in the safari "tents." They're air conditioned and have bathrooms with showers. Great atmosphere. Delicious dinner and breakfast in glass enclosed pavillion. Great views of animals from the tent area. Really good place to stay.

We booked two "tents" for two families, both with kids. The lodge staff did a great job providing us with nearby tents. It was cold outside but the rooms were perfect. This is our second time at the lodge and third time in Fossil Rim. We totally enjoyed our stay. The dinner and breakfast were both splendid. It was important... More

We took a family trip with friends including a total of 8 adults and two children. We rented every room in the lodge which provided an exceptional a family experience. We had breakfast at the Pavilion both days which was included, and they prepared a special dinner which helped us celebrate a memorable birthday. Driving to and from the Pavilion... More

If it weren't for the rattling, loud A/C in the room, this would be an easy five stars. There are spots that need fixing up, but the Peregrine Room is gorgeous and very quiet. Alas, each time the A/C kicked on, that quiet was spoiled. However, that was the only gripe. Our greeting was warm, the Lodge quiet, with great... More

Stayed here for one night. Wish we could have stayed a week. It was quiet, peaceful and spacious. The porch is perfect for sitting outside and eating a meal or snack and enjoying the scenery. We had a great time and will definitely go again.
