The cabins were spacious, comfortable beds, and the washer and dryer in the unit was a plus. We made good use of the fire pit every night and the grill. The rec center had the pool,...

Our cabin was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. It was a little cool this time of year but this did not stop the kids from tuning in the crystal clear Frio River. The resort overall is beautiful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
All of our cabins are less than 100 yards from the crystal clear Frio River. Additionally they all have fully equipped kitchens, A/C, and heat. Cabins 8 and 9 have wood burning fireplaces. From the porch swings on 10-15 you can watch the river flow by and listen to the falls (also on our property). We are family owned and operated and have been since 1949. Come for a visit to the historic, but nicely updated, Crider's Cabins on the Frio. ... more   less
