We needed a large house with ample room and preferably on the river. Lonesome Dove delivers in both areas. Contrary to previous reviews, we found the house to be very clean. Towels and bed linens were fresh. However, the supply of pots, pans, and large bowls are in short supply. There are plenty of utensils, cups, and plates. So if...

We rented the Lonesome Dove Inn based primarily on the pictures and description advertised. While the pictures represent the basics of the property, they fail to provide an accurate picture of the experience. Given the cost of the facility, it was simply not worth what we paid. First, neither the lodging company or the owner give you any guidance regarding...

My sister booked this house for us to stay in for a mini-reunion in Wimberly and it was absolutely perfect. I was surprised at how well it was updated, since my experience previously with other vacation rentals involves outdated/unwanted furniture and out of date appliances and decor. But Lonesome Dove was very cool inside and the kitchen had all the...

We just got back from Lonesome Dove. What a dissapointment. This was suppose to be our 50 Anniversary celebration. Very poor management, the outside very dirty, built up leaves, what was suppose to be a fence on the front - falling down. The linens were disgusting, absolutely NO control with the hot water in the showers, the handles fall off...

A group of 4 "60ish" couples spent Easter weekend at this property. We travel as a group several times a year and it is often difficult to find a 4Br-4B property. This one was perfect. There is a large living/dining/ kitchen area that is well stocked. Two bedrooms adjoin this area and the other two bedrooms are on opposite ends...

My husband and I stayed one night in the Cliffside cottage of Lonesome Dove River Inn and were very disappointed with the overall upkeep of this very cute cottage in a great location. When we went to take showers, we realized there was no hot water. We called the management office the following morning to let them know and the...

We apologize for the pilot light blowing out. Sometimes these things just happen, We certainly did not do this on purpose. Cliffside Cottage is no longer available for rent as our Onsite Facilities Manager resides there now and has had no complaints.

We had a family gathering at the Lonesome Dove property. There was plenty of comfortable space for everyone but this property suffers from poor management. The house has been neglected for some time. Some of the smoke detectors weren't connected or those that were were barely hanging on. There was a large crack with sizeable water damage in the living...
