Haby Haus

Sleeps 4

Haby Haus is located on the edge of the peaceful town of Utopia, Texas, known to many as paradise! This quirky country house is furnished with antiques for that down home, cozy feeling. Surrounded by several grassy wooded acres, a field full of Spring wildflowers always is an enjoyment to see. Relax on the porch, while watching birds at the feeders and nestboxes.

It is only 3 blocks away from Utopia Park for swimming and fishing. Haby Haus is 15 minutes to Garner State Park and the Frio River and 15 minutes to Lost Maples State Natural Area. This home is close to restaurants, shops, and the Utopia Golf Course.

What Our Guests Are Saying

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

I needed a quiet comfy place to stay for a weekend getaway to visit/hike the Lost Maples SNA, and “Haby Haus” of the Rio Frio Lodging definitely lived up to that. I was impressed by how clean the old country home was. Also loved how it was kept the way it seemed to be since it was built; verrrry 50s, even had old Beatles posters dated back in 1962 on it. Considering I’m a Beatles fan, it was very cool to see. Another thing I enjoyed was the bookcases of antiques and old Early/Meso America books that reminded me of the ones my mom would buy for me back in the mid 80s. Beds were very comfortable. Place was nice and warm for the 35 deg weather we were in. Only about 15-20min from the Lost Maples SNA and Garner State Park as well. If you’re looking for a nice little getaway from phones and “the real life”, forget hotels… check out the Rio Frio Lodging for a great place to kick back and relax at GREAT prices. Loved my stay and would definitely go back.
