The Inn at Chachalaca Bend is a bed & breakfast situated on 40 acres of unspoiled country paradise brimming with beautiful wildlife. We are just 20 miles from South Padre Island and 12 miles north of Mexico, outside of Los Fresnos, Texas. With its natural lake frontage and luxury accommodations that are popular with year round birdwatchers, fishermen, or those who seek only to pamper themselves with the ultimate escape and relaxation, Chachalaca Bend is one of the best kept secret travel destinations in the state. We are close to the finest beaches on the Texas Gulf Coast, as well as many popular birding sites, yet far from the crowds. Come experience for yourself this peaceful gem tucked away in the Valley.

We stayed in the Green Jay room. The main house is tastefully decorated, and the wrap around deck is especially appealing. Wee enjoyed the selection of books on site, and all the bird centered decor. We appreciated the option of the continental breakfast, as we were early

If you are looking for a great place to unwind or enjoy Texas birding, the Inn at Chachalaca Bend is perfect! We enjoyed a 4 night stay there as part of a Rio Grande Valley birding vacation. Our room was comfortable, clean, and had nice views from the 2nd story balcony. We

My family stayed at this gem of a place off the beaten path down in south Texas. It is a nice little bed and breakfast with very friendly staff. The grounds are spectacular and well maintained. While we aren't birders, we were impressed with some of the birds that we saw

This is a knockout gorgeous place but with serious issues. I can’t imagine why not mentioned before. For $250 a night everything should be perfect. The HVAC system is broken in the Green Jay room and management knows it! We arrive to a room at 76 degrees. How can you not cool

Hello! Thanks for contacting us! We have a wedding and are fully booked the 26th and 27th, but have a room available the 28th-30th. The weather has been quite warm this past week, and fluctuating between 50's and 70's this month. Most days are blue skies and sunny. We are about 20 minutes from the ocean, where you would have a selection of beaches to choose from, some busier in South Padre City, some quieter in the state park; for a truly quiet, secluded beach, I'd recommend Boca Chica about 45 minutes away. Our rates are $119/$139 on a weeknight, and $139/159 on a weekend night. I'm sorry you couldn't view our rates on TripAdvisor. We don't pay for the service to display them here. You are welcome to visit our website (you will have to google it; TripAdvisor won't let me post it here) to see our rates and book directly. If you use the code ONLINE, you'll get a 5% discount! Best, Emily
