What Our Guests Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our guests do the talking!

what a fantastic place to get away for a few days! I have stayed at Casa Rio Frio a few times with friends over the years. Great folks, clean cabins, and the Frio River a short walk across the road! I cannot wait to go back!!

We sure had a nice time at Casa Rio Frio. It was different from “usual” vacations or weekends, and I commend you on how clean and well kept it is! I would highly recommend it to anyone and whoever does go there is lucky indeed. All the arrangements were smoothly handled which is great. It was a pleasure to meet your son, who greeted us so well and was such a nice fellow. God Bless you all and I hope we’ll be able to do it again sometime.
