Great Place

4.6 on November 24, 2014

This is really a great place. A mix of your chain motels with a more personal touch. Really liked the location set back off the highway. Grounds and views were very nice. Deer and other wildlife roam all around the site.Rooms very comfortable aside from mini-fridge noise. Shower a little tight for a big person and the sink and toilet needed a little TLC. Overall a nice room. Service was top notch couldn't ask for more. Breakfast was excellent. Will defiantly stay here again when in the area.


A special and secret find in Texas

4.4 on November 18, 2014

We came to visit Lost Maples and decided to stay at Utopia on the River since it's a 20 minute drive away. We arrived late, a little past midnight, but Cheryl, the innkeeper, was there to hand us the keys and be so kind and warm. In the morning, we could get a view of the woods and the deer that were out there. Truly a special sight. Breakfast was great, southern cooking in cold weather is always a winning combination. We couldn't get enough of the peaches. And again Cheryl was there to chat with us and be just so friendly and family-centered. We enjoyed our stay even though it was short. I'll definitely be back and relax a bit more next time.


great cozy place.

Good base for exploring the Hill Country

Relaxing place to rest after a long day. It is nice to see the deer enjoying their home. Breakfast was great. Coffee, too.


Hill Country get away

4.6 on September 20, 2014

Overall, our stay was great. The owners are so nice and friendly, and are very proud of their home and property. Only have 2 slight concerns-the a\c unit is a bit noisy going on and off all nite, and there was very little shower pressure. Other than those 2 things, stay was everything we hoped for, and will be going back for sure.


Wonderfully quiet and serene.

The owners and staff are absolutely wonderful. Drove the hills to all the neighboring little towns. Just a great getaway.


Don't Miss This Part of Texas

It was a perfect two day getaway! We hiked both Lost Maples and Garner State Parks, cooled off in the rivers, napped and had delicious breakfasts. Texas is just filled with outstanding scenery and people!


Great B&B

5 on August 20, 2014

Utopia on the River is a fantastic place to get away from it all! The owners are wonderful. I worked with them to book a writer's retreat for later this year; they made the process very easy, and their conference space is great. I was fortunate to be able to visit this past weekend and I couldn't imagine a more peaceful environment. From floating in the pool, to watching the neighboring horses, to relaxing in the wooden rockers on the porch and watching the deer feed at dusk, this vacation was just perfect. My husband and I definitely will be returning!


Remote and quite getaway b&b
