If you're travelling in the Utopia area your lodging and dining options are LIMITED! Utopia on the River is porbably your best bet for miles around. It is in a pleasant setting on the river and they feed the deer every afternoon. Beautiful main office and lounge. In fact that is where they put all of their investment. The rooms... More

This was our second time staying at Utopia on the River. It is a very peaceful and beautiful place to relax and enjoy the scenery and hospitality. We stayed during Thanksgiving and were blown away by the Thanksgiving meal they served. The rooms are clean and comfortable. You won't find any place as hospitable as the Utopia on the River.

This was our 4th trip to Utopia, and the 3rd to stay here. We stayed over Thanksgiving this time, and they even prepared a lovely Thanksgiving meal for all the guests. The weather even cooperated. The breakfasts were great, too!

I'm only docking this place a star because the beds are terribly hard and uncomfortable (which is subjective). Otherwise it's a nice place in the middle of nowhere. The trees are filled with cardinals. Deer feeders invite deer and raccoons alike; I've never seen so many of either at one time. Lost Maples Cafe in town is one of the... More

This was our first trip to Utopia and to Utopia on the River. Both were very nice! We had a very clean, spacious room. The breakfasts were good and hardy. The staff could not have been nicer. We went with a group and were able to use the big conference/breakfast room to gather and watch the movie Seven Days in... More

Apparently a motel that became a B&B. Room was spacious, had refrigerator & microwave, looked out front & back onto open area with lots of deer. Thin walls. No water in the river due to drought. Breakfasts were very good, served hot & on time. Staff were friendly. Will go back

This was our first time at Utopia on the River but not our first or last time to the surrounding area as Garner State Park is our favorite place to go. The accommadations where very nice and clean compared to other local places we've stayed and the hosts were eager to please. Cheryl cooks up a great breakfast to start... More

What an incredible experience! I was just passing through and needed a place to stay for the night. I stumbled across this B&B and decided to stay the night. The property was clean, well-kept, serene and peaceful. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable on the area and very helpful. My favorite part of my stay was watching the deer gather around... More

We had a nice time at utopia on the river. The breakfast was very good - fried eggs, grits, sausage, and biscuits and gravy. It was served promptly at 8:30AM. The room was clean and nice. There is no wifi and not really any cell service there, so it was a true get away. The tub was a little weird,... More

Utopia on the River is located in one of my family's favorite parts of Texas. The Sabinal and Frio River Valleys are quiet and ruggedly beautiful. We go here to get away from it all, and my husband and I went this past week for some much-needed R&R. Do not go to this lodge expecting luxury - the setting and... More
