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

This was the first time my wife and I had been to a bed and breakfast, and we enjoyed this location immensely! Excellent Texas hospitality, beautiful and peaceful grounds, and good food. :) Also, there is a deer feeder on the grounds, so being able to watch the deer in the morning was pretty neat!

We spent three days at Utopia on the River and had a great time.

My husband took me there for a B&B weekend get away. Its a small quiet hotel with hotel like bed rooms. The grounds are lovely. Huge trees, river running through (although it was not running well when we were there due to the past year droughts). Staff were super friendly and made you feel welcomed. The only complaint I had... More

Room was large and very clean. Views out the front and back of a peaceful setting along the Sabinal River. Very comfortable bed. Absolutely no noise all night except for the ac unit. (We were the only guests here March 1, 2015). The owners, managers, etc. are extremely friendly and the home made breakfast was terrific! This location is perfect... More

Once again we enjoyed our visit, a home cooked breakfast and the great hospitality offered by everyone at Utopia on the River. We enjoy watching the many deer on the property and seeing them all congregate for the deer feeders to release their corn in the morning and evening. Nice relaxing way to end a busy day in the Texas... More

The manager, Cheryl, is gracious, professional, eager to help and was already asking how I liked my coffee and any breakfast favorites at check-in for the next morning ;-) Marriott doesn't train their people to this accommodating. Room is spacious and very clean. Television channels are limited. But I presume the remoteness of Utopia to be the culprit. Free and... More

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.
