My family and I truly enjoyed our visit to UOR. Mack and Cheryl were truly graceful and attentive to our needs. The pool was nice and hot tub relaxing. The barbque pit area was perfect with a picnic table and extra chairs. The room was super clean and cold. One suggestion would be to add mattress toppers as the beds... More

We recently held our family reunion at UOR. We occupied all rooms and had entire place at our disposal so that part was great. The staff were friendly and helpful; the grounds are expansive, rolling, tree-covered native habitat. There were deer galore, hummingbirds dive-bombing the feeders all day, raccoons, squirrels, jack rabbits, and butterflies. The river which is close by... More

My husband and I took our 2 small children (6 and 18 mo) for a week to Utopia on the River and we were extremely pleased with our visit! The rooms were very clean, the beds were comfy, the breakfasts were amazing, the surroundings were beautiful and easy to enjoy with our little ones, but best of all, the staff... More

Quaint lovely place to stay in Utopia, Tx. We will be back. Sweet rooms, gorgeous landscape with massive cypress trees and right on the Sabinal river. We swam in the clear cool river and it was delightful. Hummingbirds and deer in abundance and the breakfast was large and really good. Loved this place.

Wonderful, quiet, relaxing place. Was incredibly clean. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was ample and filling. Deer grazing everywhere; hundreds of hummingbirds at the feeder to watch. Love, love, love it!!!

We spent three nights here and enjoyed the stay immensely. The room was large, clean and comfortable - the only complaint being the noisy air conditioning unit and refrigerator. Breakfast was very good and very generous. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The setting was great - with opportunities for early morning birding expeditions on the property. The location...

Peace and quiet prevails, hospitality abounds. If you like to kick back, relax and do very little, come here. Not far from the great Lost Maples State Park, or the Garner State Park. Get up before 8:30am to watch the automatic deer feeder drop the corn. ( I counted 20 deer one a.m..) The buffet breakfast is a hardy appetizing... More

This is a pleasant place to spend a couple of nights. The rooms are very clean, the setting is beautiful, even though the river is very low right now. There is a deer feeder in front, so there are a lot of deer early and late. We also saw all kinds of birds, including wild turkeys. I was a little... More

We stayed 2 nights. It was pleasant for the most part. The property was clean, rooms nice. Owners very nice and laid back. The breakfast was interesting, prefried eggs in a crockpot, oiled fried potatoes and sausage. Just had coffee. Loved seeing the 100s of hummingbirds flying around. Went to relax and there were a few kids running all over... More

We loved this place. We visited during a slow time of the year but the place was still booked. The water is the river was way down but that was okay since it was cool outside. We enjoyed the hottub. The place is immaculate and the breakfast was something your mom would make. Loved the owners and the laid back... More
