Experience Your Summer Dream Getaway at Frio Country Resort

By  | 


Some of the best memories of a lifetime are made on Texas rivers. The Frio River is one of the finest in the Lone Star State and complements the Hill Country quite well. With the addition of sun, cypress trees, food, and good company, this relaxing river becomes even more inviting. Now imagine staying out all day on the river and then walking back to your cabin, steps away from the action. Enter Frio Country Resort.

Frio Country Resort has been a family-owned operation for over 30 years. The enterprise was a dream realized for the Arthur family. The couple’s daughter, Casey Arthur Whatley, has since taken over the operation with her husband Bryan and longtime family friends, Patti and Tommy Van Pelt. They continue to make sure the family dream remains a reality.

Frio Country Resort offers a variety of options, all within steps of the river. From one bedroom to six, the resort can accommodate very small or large groups. So, whether you’re planning an intimate getaway at this family-friendly resort, a raging good time with friends, a wedding, or a golf excursion, they’ve got you covered. Cooking is no problem in the spacious kitchenettes, and you can dine inside or sit outside by the water. From most cabins, the river is visible from your front door, which makes sitting outside and watching the sun go down and the moon come up over the river a real treat.

You can even check out the pool, should you want a change from the river. The resort also houses a convenience store and gift shop that boasts some pretty wonderful souvenirs, as well as snacks from cheap to local gourmet.

While on the river, take some time to gaze up at the amazing cypress trees that line the banks. Well-watered from the constant flow of the river, these healthy behemoths are a sight to behold. They offer some shade as you float along the current, or a nice place to park in a chair.

While in the area, be sure to check out Garner State Park. Spend a morning exploring the hiking trails and spotting Old Baldy in the cool breeze, and then make your way back to the river once the afternoon heat revs up. There are some wonderful trails, ranging from easy to difficult. Be sure to visit the Foshee Trail for a challenge, and check out Crystal Cave for a deep adventure!

In the evening, plan to grill cabin-side or visit one of the restaurants the area boasts. Neal’s Dining Room is just down the road and serves up comfort food aplenty. They also make a mean breakfast, so come back the next morning bright and early!

You won’t want to miss their views of the river from their outdoor patio, or the hummingbirds that visit regularly. Your waitstaff can tell you about all the types of hummingbirds that visit their feeders. They’re fun to watch from the windows while you dine!
