We just loved staying here. The staff is wonderful, the breakfast delicious. It is quiet, peaceful, beautiful.....did I say quiet? They have wonderful walking trails for nature and bird viewing. They even have a bird blind perfect for taking photos. There are only 4 rooms in the main house and all open out onto a balcony. Two rooms downstairs with... More

Spending two nights here, I did not want to leave. I felt like I had stepped into another dimension. The most lush, tropical area I've ever seen in my 38 years in Texas. As travel writers, my husband and I have stayed at a lot of bed and breakfasts and this is definitely in our top 3. The most gracious... More

Good service. Clean rooms. Above average breakfast. Beautiful grounds to wander about and commune with nature, watch birds, read and relax away from traffic noise, telephones and every day hubbub. The proprietors are so willing to help and have provided little niceties that make this a wonderful getaway.

The resident chachalacas are e real treat. Sitting on the dock in the mornings and evening is highly recommended Breakfast is delicious. We will definitely be... More

A friend who is an avid birder first told me about the Inn at Chachalaca Bend, when I was making frequent business trips to the Lower Rio Grande Valley. I returned there recently and found it is still the best lodging in the Valley. The Inn offers a wonderfully different experience of South Texas life styles, whether traveling for eco-tourism,...

One of the best kept secrets... Love this place. Comfortable, quiet retreat situated in a place of beauty. Great for all types of travelers. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. And the bird watching is spectacular.

My husband and I enjoyed our perfect wedding day this past Saturday at the Inn at Chachalaca Bend. We almost considered changing wedding locations at the last minute because of severe rain, thunderstorms, and flooding in South Texas, but now we are so happy that we decided to weather the storm at Chachalaca Bend. The wedding turned out beautifully! Debra,... More

This is a beautiful somewhat hidden gem. It is on a Resaca (inland body of water) in Los Fresnos, just outside of Brownsville. The beauty of the grounds, the inn, and the waterfront is amazing. It was quite a nice surprise to discover this unique place, especially since we have spent a lot of time in the Rio Grande Valley... More

This place was beautiful, perfect little B&B that's just 20 minutes from the island. The room was perfect, the grounds were awesome with the chance to experience the wildlife that is present at the inn. Would definitely book it again !!!!!

We drove a long distance from Austin to visit South Padre Island, reputed to be a great beach resort. Instead we were greeted by a strip of fast food restaurants, unremarkable beaches and not a first class restaurant on the island. What seemed like a classy hotel had closed and opened as a drug rehab facility. So very disappointed we... More
