Donna is the manager and both she and her husband were just super friendly and helpful. We were in the Kingfisher room and I would recommend it...

Beautiful setting with beautiful rooms and a delicious breakfast. Donna and her staff excel at hospitality. The room was peaceful, very clean, and perfectly appointed. I loved stepping out onto the wrap-around balcony each morning to watch and listen to the nature surrounding the inn. I hope to return!

The Inn is nothing like you picture when thinking of the Rio Grande Valley. A beautiful inn in a beautiful setting.

And it is a real pleasure to watch the...

We loved the fireplace and the warmth of the Staff! Our room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds were wonderful for walking and birding. Its location on a resaca added unique opportunities for enjoying the outdoors.

It is a delightful property and was so quiet and relaxing. We arrived a little late and couldn't find the wine, but it was completely wonderful! I didn't want to leave the property for meetings the next day. I'll be back.
