“Disappointed - Rude managers/owners”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Very disappointed with the service our family received from the manager/owners. Our family in total reserved 15 of their 16 rooms for a family reunion and many members of our family were treated poorly by the female and older gentleman that run the place. The younger gentleman was very nice and accommodating but unfortunately the other two will run people off. Some members of our family were told they could not use public restroom facilities while they were hosting a private party. The owners policed the bath towels. No matter how many people you reserve your room for, you are only allowed 4 towels at a time and cannot request more than once a day. Another member was talked to poorly about recreational rentals. Some found dirty socks between their sheets and other found dirt an crumbs in the sheets. Many dogs run the property freely. The grounds are nicely kept. The rooms overall are spacious and clean but I will spend my $400 elsewhere next year.

Our Family was looking for a Spring Break Trip for our family of five. My husband and I have three small children under the age of five and have a boat also. This Park and Cabin Lodging was by far the BEST place towards East Texas. Clean cabins, grounds are well maintained and very nice. Very family friendly and will continue to book every year here. The owners truly care about the customers and take a lot of pride in this business. This was our first family fishing trip and vacation and it exceeded all our expectations.

Stayed here for 4 days / 3 nights recently for a boating get together. We were pleasantly suprised by the very clean yet simple rooms with views to die for. The owners were very nice and even have a little store on the property. We will be back for sure. The lagoon area is great for light boating and swimming wilth near by access to the Trinity River. Huntsville is just a short drive away if you are wanting to go out for dinner and a drink. Thank you Bethy Creek Resort for an awesome weekend.

My family and I just returned from our stay yesterday and I can't thank Bethy Creek enough for making our trip perfect. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful! The view of the lake right outside our window was breathtaking. The swimming beach area was clean as well as the the entire property. We enjoyed the erc on our last day there...I wish we would have done that every day! Honestly, I was nervous to try it having never wake boarded before but Randall taught us all exactly what to do. He was an amazing and patient instructor. I was worried someone with such a talent at wakeboarding would be frustrated that we fell off as much as we rode but he was a gem! If you are looking for a place to take your family or even just a romantic getaway for two then this is the place...no need to keep searching on google!

Great location! We watched the sun and the moon rise every day. Kids were happy the entire time. We loved having a kitchen! Price was right. The owners are friendly and nice. We will definitely come back.

One request that we would like to make is to upgrade the linens. They are 100% polyester. At night, every time you touch your sheets, you can see the sparks that are caused by static electricity. Although the mattress was great, the sheets were unpleasant to touch and we were not very comfortable.

Room was not dirty but I can't call that "clean" either. Dog poop was everywhere.... But overall, we enjoyed the stay and we are looking forward to coming back here again!

My husband and I have been going to Bethy Creek for 9 years now and never once have we ever been treated bad or been rude too the Vincent Family is a very warm loving family and go out of their way to accomadate everyone. We have 3 grandchildren that we take regularly and they make their daily trip to the marina to get a free sucker from Mr. Randell it just makes their day. We leave our RV there all the time and never once have we worried about it. As a matter of fact we left one Sunday morning and forgot to turn some heat on so the pipes would not freeze and Randell Jr. went to our RV and set up the heat for us per a phone call so yes I would recommend Bethy Creek to anyone to have an enjoyable relaxing weekend and loads of fun. We go every spring break and have for 9 years now and we take like 30 people with us every year and they also return during the year. Hats off to the Vincents to a job very well done and thank you for being so accommodating

We are purely lake people who own a high-end wakeboarding boat. We often stay long weekends and take vacations in the Texas hill country (lake LBJ) and pay a premium to do so. Bethy Creek is easily HALF AS MUCH per night to stay in the cabins that are RIGHT ON THE WATER, and they allow dogs also!

The best part is waking up in the morning on the front deck and having your coffee, watching the sun come up, and seeing your boat parked right in front of you.

Be warned that the cabins are not the Ritz-Carlton! We only stay in them to sleep and spend our days on the water, so they are perfect for us.

Oh, and did I mention that we can bring our dog and not spend extra money to have her stay at a pet hotel!
