The Inn at Chachalaca Bend
Ranked #1 of 1 Los Fresnos B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 27, 2008

The Inn at Chachalaca Bend is tucked away behind a lovely gate on a water way about 20 minutes from the coast on over 40 acres in Los Fresnos. It boast of hiking trails, an abundance of birds to bird watch, beautiful, artistic old world landscape and architecture.

The inn by reputation is probably the most luxurious stay you can find in the valley and has actually hosted many people of notarity as well as a past US President.

We were delighted to find such a place in existence down near South Padre Island for our wedding anniversary. The outside makes me think of what Eden must have looked liked with all it's lushness, beauty and the sounds of the wildlife that surround the property.

We found the main inn itself to be extremely warm and inviting with it's nice beautiful casual New Orleans style porches, comfortable chairs and books galore to read. Our room was very modern and romantic, with a lovely huge upstairs porch we sat at with very comfortable chaise lounges to relax on while watching the birds and a nice jet tub to relax and soak in. In the morning, we were served a grand breakfast with eggs, salsa, fruit, yogart and coffee.

From beginning to end, it was the perfection we desired in a place to make our 18th wedding anniversary extremely special.

I highly recommend this place, you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful! Amazing! What can I say, we loved this place and would go back in a heartbeat. I wish we lived closer so that we could make it a regular stop. The inn is an old mansion, with modern amenities galore. We enjoyed the birding on the grounds in the amazing gardens. Our room was beautiful and luxurious, each decorated uniquely. The bed was very comfortable, and I am picky. French doors lead out to a beautiful balcony area, overlooking the gardens. Waterfront inn. Gorgeous birds and gardens. Wine and cheese in the afternoon. Jacuzzi tub in the room. Library for your enjoyment. Breakfast was generous and delicious. My best bed and breakfast experience yet, and that is saying a lot. Don't miss this place if you were planning a trip to the area, or even if you weren't. The innkeepers were very nice and helpful. Trails on the grounds. By the way, they do weddings and other events. Don't miss this first class establishment that can boast hosting a former president of the United States.

One of the best B&B's I have ever stayed.
Comfort and amenities down to the last detail. Excellent service yet not in your face. The grounds were fabulous for a birder.
One minor drawback was the distance from good eating establishments in the evening.
