We spent 2 nights and it was so enjoyable and relaxing! We brought our little Shih Tzu and she so enjoyed just sitting on the porch with us and watched the birds and wildlife. Hope to get back there soon.

I wanted to take a moment and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in the Kickapoo Cabin. It was wonderful, cozy, and relaxing. Just a good time and much-needed R & R.Thanks again for a wonderful place to spend time by the river, Don & Yvonne

Such a beautiful place, nice and quiet. The people are very nice and helpful. Many renovations to the cabins and grounds for a comfortable getaway. Utopia area is very nice year round. I hate to submit this review for wanting to keep it hidden, but these people deserve the business.

We had my son's wedding here, The party barn served as a great place for our Friday night dinner party and then for the wedding reception on Saturday night. Great staff - had everything we needed and were very accommodating. The wedding was down by the river and was great. Weather was a bit chilly but not bad for February. They had heaters available so that was very much appreciated. The fortress house was great for 5 adults and 6 kids and cabins were comfortable for a number of guests. The kids had so much fun with room to run around and play. Karyn is the best to work with!

My wife and I just returned from a wonderfully relaxing weekend. The cabin was very nice and the Sabinal River is beautiful If you are looking to disconnect this is the place. We enjoyed the river and the fire pit. It is amazing how relaxing a fire can be.
