We loved staying here. There are large common areas and decks. Excellent service. The morning safari was the highlight of the trip. This is a perfect place for families. This location is a short trip from D/FW area. We plan to go again.

Bill made our visit so nice. Best staff, best accommodations, best time with my family. The safari tour was great with Sara. We enjoyed seeing all the animals and Sara's knowledge of the animals was terrific.

My husband and I rented the top room, it was very comfortable. The bed was nice, shower, we didnt spend much time in there because there was a nice living area downstairs. We put our drinks and snacks in the fridge in the kitchen. It was truly like staying in your uncles lodge with a great view! We enjoyed the... More

Spent 2 wonderful night here. Very friendly staff. Very good breakfast and wonderful guided tour by Chris of Fossel Rim. Would definitely stay here again. Saw a number of animals from the lodge and just had a wonderful place to relax.

Great time, took my three year old grandchild. Recommend that you bring pop corn and snacks. This is the best way to see the park as you are allowed unlimited access. Accommodations were good and looking forward to returning.

We stayed here for a night and it was very nice place. Loved the rustic décor and the antiques. We didn't see any animals as we had hoped from the balcony, but staff were really friendly and helpful. Would stay aagain

A night at The Lodge at Fossil Rim was a lovely experience. The remote rural setting among the rolling hills of Somervell County was breathtaking. I really enjoyed sitting on the long second-story veranda reading a book and watching the Addax antelope grazing nearby. One lonely little Fallow Deer hung around for a while--and after dark I could hear the... More

What a great place to stay!! We booked the Egret room and the Hummingbird room in August 2015. They're side by side and share a close bathroom. Both rooms have sliding glass doors that open onto a deck that has a great view of Fossil Rim. We loved having a living room where our kids could hang out in the... More

Staying at the fossil rim lodge. It's very clean the and staff is very friendly. We have seen many different kinds of deer just looking out from our room and the eating area. Definitely a different environment for those not looking to stay at a hotel. It is community bath so if that bothers you look into the cabins.

We stayed in the "tents" by the watering hole (we were in cheetah). This was a great adventure with our two and four year old. The setting is very pretty with views of the watering hole. The cabins are well spaced out and the shared wooden seats to watch the watering hole are nicely set away from the cabins so... More

“If you are having a romantic stay, go for the peregrine room. Very spacious with the jacuzzi. Also stay mid week because I am not sure I would spend $325.00 for this room on the weekend.”
