“Private Cabin on the Frio River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2007

We had a fantastic time at this place. Private clean cabins, beautiful Frio River runs right in front of the cabins, incredible views of the hill country from the front porch. A great place for adults to relax and kids to play. Lots of activities....Our favorite things were tubing the river and horseback riding. We also enjoyed campfire at night. Best vacation we’ve ever had! Just a little over an hour from San Antonio.

We vist River Haven every year. We love it! The people who run River Haven are wonderful and do everything they can to make you happy. The cabins are cozy and all of them have fireplaces and many have large porches overlooking the river. The kitchens are fully equiped and River Haven is one of the few rental places that provide bed linnens and towels at no extra charge. For those who want to do more than just float the river, there are many great places just a few minutes away. Garner State Park is one of those places. The dances every Saturday night during the summer are somethig that you don't want to miss. Make sure you call early to make your reservation because they fill up early.

River Haven Cabins is the best river front cabin accomodations in Leakey and perhaps within 30 miles (there are some wonderful places in Hunt, TX). The accomodations are comfortable, the access to the Rio Frio is excellent, the RHC staff are wonderfully friendly, and the scenery is fabulous. Close to Garner State Park, Lost Maples State Park (one of the most beautiful TX State Park), and central to the surrounding towns, RHC offers an ideal location for a Hill Country escape.

Bottom line River Haven Cabins is the place for a family trip, couples get-away, or any type of laid back gathering that you have in mind. My only regret in posting this information is that too many of you will be prompted to take my advice and actually book up the facilities for months to come.

Best Place to Rent a Tube: Shell Station outside the Garner State Park entrance. You can rent a tube for $5 for 24 hours and wander about the area putting in wherever the Rio Frio flows.

Best Place to Eat: Mama Chloe's Mexican Restaurant. The food is fabulous and the prices are good for any vacationer's budget.

This place was beautiful! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is they have beautiful fireplaces in each cabin, but you are only allowed to burn their log in the fireplace (equivalent to a Duraflame Log) because they've had many problems in the past with people leaving huge messes and even cutting down trees on the property to burn in the fireplace. So you can't roast marshmallows over a chemical log. Other than that (and that was a really important thing to us during 30 degree weather on the Frio River), the place is beautiful, VERY clean and well-maintained. Every cabin's balcony overlooks the Frio River. I bet this place is beautiful in the spring. the management is very friendly as well. My advice? Stay here if you're in the Garner State Park area!!!
