Stayed here over spring break 2005 with the family (2 kids). I am probably biased because they upgraded our room for no reason. Very relaxing time. Great room. Great Staff. Nice pool and EXTREMELY quiet surroundings (at the edge of nowhere). There is plenty to do if you enjoy outdoor activities. 4-wheeling, bike rides, tennis, paint ball, shooting range, etc. (all this in our case mostly for the kids - while wife and I relaxed). Food was great. Very pricey (best to go during the week). We will be back.

The Rough Creek Lodge was recently named "the best lodge in North America - 2005" by Conde Nast Johansens and the title is well-deserved. About the only thing rough about a trip to the Lodge is the access roads off Highway 67. My firm took a short retreat to the Lodge and had a great time. It is a great place to relax or partake in outdoor activities such as skeet shooting, riding ATVs, hunting, fishing. etc. The Lodge also features a fairly nice driving range. The rooms and the restaurant were outstanding. I did not check out the pool or the spa.

The Lodge seems to be very popular for corporate retreats but I would also recommend this place to couples for a quick getaway from DFW, a guy's weekend, or a meeting place for friends. It is about a 2 hour drive from DFW and it is fairly expensive, although they do offer packages.

I don't want to be picky, but at these prices, I really don't expect to find peeling paint, dusty table tops, only two skimpy bath towels and crickets in my closet!

We were similarly unimpressed with the restaurant. The food is presented beautifully but was curiously flavorless.

Maybe the new owners will look into the maintenance issues and find better sources for fresh food?

If I were just rating the restaurant and its servers, I would not hesitate to give it a 'Five Star Excellent' rating! However, as a place to stay there was much to be desired, at least from our perspective. It's too bad because the place has such terrific potential!! The rooms and baths were quite large, with lovely leather chairs and couches. However, the room we had for 3 of the 4 nights shared a wall with the kitchen exhaust fan and air conditioning system! There was so much vibration that if you had a glass of water on the bedside table, it would shake! The first night, the noise and vibration thankfully quit just after ten, but the following nights it went on until around midnight and every morning it came on pretty much at the dot of six AM! Not a restful getaway!!

We had noticed the noise upon arrival and asked to be moved, but were told it was the only room available. Also, the room below us was a conference room so during the day people would come out on the balcony just below us for smoke breaks--said smoke wafting up to our room and deck (which only had one rocking chair as opposed to the two on seemingly all the other decks!!). We kept waiting for somebody to notify us that another room was available! Finally, on the 3rd morning, we decided if we couldn't move, we'd just leave early because we were so tired of the noise and vibration! After checking with the front desk at 9 o'clock in the morning, we were able to move to the room next door so obviously it had been available the previous night, but we were never notified! It was absolute heaven to be free of the noise and vibration!! And our second room had a much nicer configuration--plus two chairs on the deck! But pity the poor handicapped people who would not have HAD the option of moving from the "noise and vibration" room!

Had we had our second room during the entire stay, the trip would have been much more enjoyable, but there were still a couple of major problems that would keep it from being the ideal getaway, at least from our point of view. The first, and most important, is the fact that the Resort seems to cater to corporate groups. Therefore, the groups kind of "take over" the dining room and pool area--neither of which is very large. Not to fault them, but it gets rather loud when it's just the two of you and maybe a few other couples with the rest all interacting as a large group. It's too bad there aren't "group dining areas" and a "group pool".

As I mentioned, the pool area is rather small and there was not one umbrella in sight!! We saw many people on their way to painful sunburns because the only shade in the entire area was the tiny bit of awning shading the snack bar! Fortunately, we were there during the week in May when the snack bar wasn't open so we could get under the tiny bit of shade (which would have blocked the snack bar had it been open). The pool is definitely more the size of one you would find at a private home rather than a resort! And while promoting their spa treatments (where we both had very good massages!), there are only 2 treatment rooms so one should reserve early or during a time the large groups are in meetings or doing their group bonding activities. The other big problem with the pool/spa area is that it isn't far (enough!) from the skeet shooting area so your relaxing pool time is punctuated by booming shots!

Sorry to have gone on so much, but it was a very frustrating experience simply because it COULD be a fantastic destination. Most of the "ingredients" are in place, but it does require some major re-thinking! Is it to be simply a hunting lodge, albeit a very comfortable one, or a couples' getaway with more "pampering options"? It's definitely best now as a restaurant--the food was nothing short of fabulous. And the setting, in a wide-open spaces kind of way, is spectacular. You feel as though you're out in the middle of nowhere even though you aren't that far from the Dallas/Ft. Worth metropolitan area.

When we were there mid May, the Resort had apparently just changed ownership, at least in part, with the original owner retaining some percentage though it sounded as though he would have little, if any, to do with day-to-day operations. So perhaps change of some sort is on the way.........

The entire staff at Rough Creek gave nothing but top shelf service. Room accomodations exceeded my expectations. The view from my balcony at sunset took my breath away. For moments, I felt that I had been transported to another land. The safari-type ride into the brush for our company-sponsored dinner was outstanding. Our five-star dining room meal the next evening was among the best that I have eaten. Spa treatments were equally memorable. The tranquil silence of the area brings to you nature at its' best.
