“Wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

This is a lovely place in a very rustic Texas country. The service, food and accommodations are far from rustic. I had eaten there many times, but spring break was the first time to stay. We were there for three days. There were lots of children of all ages during this time and so much for them to do. Great family place... I think it is also a good place for a quiet retreat when it is not spring break. It is very expensive, but it does not seem to keep the people away. Everyone was so friendly and helpful... some of the best food and service I have experienced anywhere.

OK, I will admit to being very disappointed ...but I will try to be fair. First, if you are looking for a quiet and romantic get-away, RCL is the wrong place for you. If you are looking for a high-priced family get-away and you do not mind lots of loud children roaming the "5-star" dining room in wet clothes ...RCL is right for you. Setting - gorgeous. Rooms - very average. Food - underwhelming and 3x the cost of a comparable meal in DFW and the restaurant staff while friendly ...was clueless.

Dear Guest of Rough Creek Lodge,

Thank you for choosing to stay at Rough Creek Lodge. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback.

I am so sorry that your experience did not go as you expected. It appeared that you were looking for a romantic getaway, which at any other time of the year; Rough Creek Lodge would have been an outstanding choice. I believe you where here during one of the busiest times of the year, Easter week. RCL is an outstanding family retreat during the holidays when kids are out of school. I would suggest that you call in advance and ask about the types of groups, family retreats, and hunting activities that may be taking place during your dates of interest.

Thank you for the other compliments regarding your stay and hopefully we will see you again.

Thank You,
Paul Boccafogli
General Manager

The acres of nothing is amazing! Love the lake and hiking trail. if you want to get away from the city and lights, this is your place. It's not rustic though, very upscale rooms and the food is 5 star!

A very fine lodge in a wonderful setting with many activities as well as the chance to just gaze at the vast sky. Not too far from Dallas/Ft Worth and worth a drive for the relaxing experience. I took my son and his wife for a luxury get away before a new baby and I believe they enjoyed the pampering and chance to chill out and relax while rocking on the balcony looking over the wide vista. Pre-natal massage was rated awesome by my D-I-L. Food was excellent although a bit heavy for my taste. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were nice, with excellent baths and appropriate appointments for a Texas experience. A stop on the way to visit Ft Worth museums was a fine addition to the trip.

If you have not been to the Rouch Creek Lodge, you are missing out. I took my family over Spring Break for two days, and we loved every moment we were there. The resort is so fun, with multiple family friendly activities, and has a very friendly and helpful group of folks that work hard to make sure the guests enjoy themselves. We had a fantastic experience, and we will be coming back. I have no complaints about anything at all. It was very positive for us in every respect.

Room Tip: I don't think Rough Creek Lodge has anything except good rooms.

Rough Creek Lodge is on 11, 000 beautiful acres in Glen Rose, Texas. The architecture is beautiful and the activities available are plentiful. The room, despite the towels and robes which were badly in need of fabric softener and some re-grouting of tiles needed, were lovely. We thought the balcony overlooking the pond to be a really nice addition. The spa was small, but wonderful. The staff was very friendly and courteous throughout the resort. Our big ...BUT.... with this resort was the dinner. We came in paying a large sum and expecting a spectacular dinner. It was only good, not great. How sad. Breakfast was good, though. For $600.00 for the room and two meals (breakfast and dinner), we had very high expectations and were disappointed. Just want to give you all a 'head's up' there. The resort is wonderful otherwise.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor overlooking the pond. It was a very good location.

If you love spas, shooting and outdoor sports, you will LOVE Rough Creek Lodge. It's a perfect Texas getaway for the whole family, with quite a lot more to do than most resorts.
