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

Everything about the property was good, we enjoyed the breakfast and the people were nice. The only issue, but a major one for us was the kids who were allowed free run (unsupervised) of the pool. They were the kids of either the owners or the cleaning lady, we didn't know which but nobody (but us) was watching them and... More

This was a wonderful place in warmer weather to use as a base for exploring Lost Maples and the nearby towns and countryside. It is quiet, and there is beautiful country scenery and deer eating from the nearby feeder. Breakfast (the only meal available on the property) is wonderful! When the weather changed on us to cold and rainy mid-visit,... More

This place is always beautiful in the fall, but the warm and friendly hosts of this inn really add a special touch. The breakfast is excellent, the grounds are beautiful, and the accommodations comfortable. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing break from your normal busy life.

We loved our stay at Utopia on the River. Cheryl and Marc are very gracious hosts, providing for our needs -- even including snacks. The setting with very old Bald Cypress Trees is breathtaking. Breakfast was very good both days we were there. My only critical observation is that the rooms could use a bit of updating (plumbing and decor).... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Utopia on the River! It is a beautiful place, very peaceful and Cheryl, Mack and Karyn really make you feel at home and part of the family. I have never been anywhere with such hospitality. Breakfast was amazing. We even enjoyed the hot tub in the 60 degree weather and it... More

My boyfriend and I had an amazing anniversary weekend. Location is close to anything and everything you could want to do. Utopia on the river was lovely, staff was amazing, and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Going back in a couple weeks to see the leaves at lost maples.
