Rooms and property are even better than photos show! Property is secluded and sits on the banks of Sabinal River (check out the waterfall). Our room was updated and very comfortable. Great bed. The pool and hot tub offered a welcomed and relaxing break after a day of hiking (Lost Maples SP is magnificent) and tubing (the Frio is the... More

Had a blast with our adult children!!! Golfed on the Utopia Course and floated the Frio River! Played in the clear water behind the Inn. We went to the Bat Cave A few miles away and we ate at The Cafe down the road. The breakfast at the Inn is amazing! Never disappointed at Utopia on The River! It is... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Utopia on the River and, like so many others, we were instantly smitten with it. From the delicious homemade breakfasts (strawberry jelly muffins = the best!) to the views of dozens of deer gathering in the front yard for their regular feeding to the beautiful, crystal clear river just out back, the...

My parents and I stayed here on a motorcycle trip and loved it! Beautiful river, woods, fireflies, great breakfast in a neat lodge area and very nice rooms. The pool was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were deer coming to the feeder and a lot of hummingbirds - just a lovely place. We will definitely... More

This was a great place to spend 3 days and we wished we could have stayed longer. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and varied. The most delightful aspect of the stay was Matt and Cheryl and their staff; friendly, accommodating, and very hospitable. We came to paint and the views of the hills... More

A clean and spacious room, nice pool and hot tub. Very quiet surroundings except for the pleasant sound of the River out back. A beautiful setting, magnificent centuries old trees, very friendly innkeepers that make you feel like you're kinfolk.

Greeted by a fawn, we entered the gate of Utopia on the River. The thick-trunked trees captured our attention. Just behind them was a babbling brook. Clear as crystal, we slipped our feet into the cool waters. The peaceful setting sent a smile to our hearts. Kind-hearted folk greeted us as we entered the dining room. Before entering our room,...

We stayed over the weekend and loved almost everything here. The view is lovely, the hot tub comfortable (at night as you gaze out, you can see fireflies dotting the landscape), and no one beats the manager in terms of friendliness and hospitality. Breakfast was delicious and I felt so pampered while I was there. The only thing that keeps... More

My husband and I visited Utopia on the River for the first time in March 2014 and loved it so much that we chose it as the site for our family to gather to celebrate our mom's 90th birthday this past weekend. The innkeepers catered a delicious lunch for our party, and our family enjoyed the beautiful grounds and peaceful... More

This trip was my third trip to Utopia, Texas. I have stayed at Utopia on the River the last two times. The rooms are pretty quiet and very comfortable. Beds sleep really well and the king bed had 5 large (3 hard and 2 soft) pillows and they were perfect for my head up sleeping. The owners serve a fresh... More
