We truly love this place! The Inn at Chachalaca Bend has beautiful luxurious rooms with comfortable beds (I never wanted to get up in the mornings because it was so cozy!), nice Jacuzzi tubs, porches, and tasteful decorations. The grounds are gorgeous and lush, with short walking paths, a waterfront view, and a thick foliage that makes this place feel...

I went birding the surrounding area each day from sun up to sun down. Next time I don't think I will leave the property! Two birds still eluded me. The Altamira Oriole and the Buff-bellied Hummingbird. I came back early my last night and saw the Oriole, I stayed for breakfast the day of my departure and saw the hummingbird....

We're getting to stay in the lodge here, and it's absolutely amazing. The decor is so unique and attractive and the woodwork and parquetry on the facade, floors, and stairway make this like no B&B I've ever seen--I feel like I'm in an art museum or something! And as if this wasn't stimulating and rejuvenating enough, we got great looks...

We spent a couple of nights here while on a birding trip to the RGV with my sister and her family. It's a very pretty spot and our hosts were very gracious. They were very accommodating with muffins and items in the refrigerator for our breakfast the morning we had an early morning boat trip planned. The grounds are very...

We always enjoy staying in upstairs rooms and spend many hours sitting on the balcony watching wildlife. It is disappointing that we didn't get our rooms straightened, trash emptied, fresh towels, etc over the weekend but the food was great and the luxurious linens and decor made up for it. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We had a...

It seems you are much further into the wilderness in this lovely, quaint mini resort. The birding was great, with many trails and feeding stations, and the most delightful tip lead us to see nesting Great Horned Owls. Breakfast and amenities were beyond our expectations. Thanks for the delightful stay! My only recommendation is that the large lodge would be...

There are only 5 rooms and a lodge which was the bridal suite for the bride and groom. I can't say enough about the beauty of the place or the staff, they were wonderful. We stayed 2 nights, we were served breakfast on the 2nd day there. It was delicious!!
