Sabinal River Lodge
Reviewed 1 June 2010

This is a great place to stay close to the "action" in Utopia. Everything is within strolling distance, if you don't mind enjoying fresh country air and small town scenery. The cabins are high enough you can enjoy the views and the patio feeders are frequented by a huge variety of birds and hummingbirds. Each cabin has comfy beds, a kitchenette and a table, plus Satellite TV. The river rolls through the corner of the yard and there's a large grassy area for the kids to run and catch fireflies at night. Just up the way you will find a couple of restaurants, a park, antique shops, the general store, and a coffee house. Loved it!

Reviewed 15 August 2007

My husband and I took the family to Utopia,Texas for a last family vacation before summer break was officially over. We booked a two night stay at the Sabinal River Lodge, which was a 4 unit cabin along the Sabinal River in Utopia,Tx (80 miles west of San Antonio). Thankfully, it was only after we arrived at the lodge that the car decided it no longer wanted to start. Luckily, Utopia is full of kind people. One of the fellow vacationers found a mechanic and sent him our way. The mechanic confirmed it was the starter that failed. The lodge owners offered my husband their car to Uvalde (about 45 miles away) to pick up the part and the upon his return immediately fixed the car. This gave us the excuse to extend our vacation and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The Sabinal River runs right behind the lodge with natural springs feeding it off the property.It makes summer in Texas pleasant.

The lodge has many modern ammenities with satellite tv,dvd player, wireless internet, a fully stocked kitchenette and comfortable beds. Stay in and make homecooked meals at one of many outdoor pits or eat out at the local cafes. Soak in the cool waters of the river or drive 20 minutes away to Lost Maples SP or Garner SP. Lots to see and enjoy. Gary and Sandy Morris are wonderful hosts. We can't wait to go back.
