What Our Guests Are Saying

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

We had the most wonderful time at the Rio Lindo! Thank you so much for staying late to help us check in. We were disappointed that it rained both evenings as we wanted to see some stars, but the weather was great during the day. The cabin was so nice & cozy. My husband commented that he’s never felt so comfortable in a rental place before. We’re already planning a night or two in the winter so we can use the fireplace & campfire & maybe see some winter constellations! Thanks again!

We had a great time at Rio Lindo, and I swam in the Frio on our last day, a delightful memory that will stay with me forever. Vinny’s Italian was very good; the Hog Pen BBQ was close to terrible! I really enjoy staying in small rural places like Leakey and the surrounding territory and would like to return. Your service was exactly as you promised it, and I would recommend you to anyone wanting to stay near Lost Maples. Thank you for renting Rio Lindo to us!

Monica and I had a wonderful stay at Rio Lindo. We very much enjoyed the peace and tranquility as well as exploring the area. We also really enjoyed the bat tour. That was spectacular. We hope to be able to visit the Frio Canyon area again soon. I will be telling our family and friends about the excellent lodging and tour services you provide. Since we have a few Rio Frio Lodging magnets, we will be passing those out as well as posting our vacation photos on our Facebook page.
