“Family time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

We had such a memorable time! We have 4 young girls & they had a blast feeding the animals, fishing, playing at the playground & tree house, & just exploring the property. The owner was very helpful & kind. If you want to slow life down and reconnect with your family in a warm & enviting atmosphere, this is your place!

This was our third trip to Roddy Tree. Looking forward to many more visits. The house we stayed in needed some repairs and a fresh coat of paint but the hill country views made up for that.

Great spot for seclusion. Every cabin is different. Ours was very clean and cozy. Loved canoeing and the grounds on the Guadalupe. Loved that there was a music venue on the property and had a great time Saturday night during the very entertaining live music.

Very quaint, very clean. We loved watching the deer stroll through the grounds. The park by the Guadalupe river was nice. We will have to come back in the summer to enjoy the pools. The live music and cajun food was excellent.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Roddy Tree. I wish we had another couple of days to enjoy all the extras. The homes were cozy and clean and I loved having everything we needed there and not having to pack everything. My 3 year old and 9 year old had a great time swimming, canoeing, and just walking around. I brought my sons bike and he loved riding around visiting our other family members. The rec room was awesome after supper to play ping pong and fuzz ball. Can't say enough good things about the place. Really want to go back soon!

Room Tip: If going with a large group look at map and pick houses that are close.

Thanks for coming back. That was our goal when we started the Ranch in 1995. At the time we had two boys 5 & 3. We wanted to have a place that families could enjoy, everyone in the family. If you have suggestions or a wish list for Roddy Tree, please pass it on. It will be good to have you back soon. Keith

We stayed for a week. No room service to clean or straighten up. Felt like bugs were crawling all over me while in bed. We would have left, but would have forfeited prepaid fees.

A notice on a lamp stated 'not to remove or tamper with lamp..insurance carrier required lamp to be functional.' Note stated there would be a large charge to the guest if the lamp was tampered with. The lamp did not have a bulb,nor was it plugged into an outlet. So much for the insurance, questioned if there was any insurance in the event of a need.

We experienced a similar welcome as another guest, found keys and maps in a box. We arrived late PM, no one around.

Our overall rating would have gone from territory to bad if there had been any attention to detal. !!!

Person who identified himself as the owner stated he could not afford to hire anyone to clean units ..

Best advice: stay AWAY. !!!

Even if you have to pay a little more somewhere else, the other place would be a real bargain.

Roddytree, Manager at Roddy Tree Ranch, responded to this review, November 3, 2011
I will address each point in this review. First of all we are not a hotel. We do not offer cleaning services on a daily basis. If this person wanted room service daily they should have stayed in a hotel. The comment about the lamp kind of tells it all. These are tags that are by law placed on all lamps and have nothing to do with our insurance. Our office is open till 6 pm for check-ins, late arrivals are left a package with directions to their cabin, key and other important information. There is an after hour number on the door. I can be reached 24 hour a day 7 days a week. I am the owner and have never told anyone that we can't afford to hire folks to clean the units. We have a wonderful cleaning staff that do a terrific job. You can't please all the people all the time. Some you can't please at all.

This is a beautiful ranch that needs a little attention to detail. It has such a variety of things for the children to do--fishing pond, pools, etc.. We probably won't stay again, though, because our cabin just wasn't as clean as we're used to. The sheets and towels were clean, but the furniture and dining chair seat cushions were badly stained and the window sills and light switches were dirty. The ranch also needs to update its Web site and room materials. There is no petting zoo (just horses and burros) and there is no paddle boat (just canoes) at the river. There is plenty to do, so why not be honest about what's available?

Room Tip: We like the cabins overlooking the fishing pond.

While I'm glad that your children had a wonderful time with us, I'm sorry to hear that you were a bit disappointed last summer. While staying in one of our cabins is certainly a different experience than a night at an average hotel, we take pride in our cleanliness and appearance. I will discuss your feedback with our cleaning staff to make sure that they're staying as diligent as usual. Still, I apologize for your experience. Thank you for your honest feedback — it is what makes us strive to do better! We hope you'll give us another try soon.

Best,
Keith, Owner
