This place is a gorgeous hidden gem on the Frio. Stunning views, awesome swimming hole, deep water (despite the drought), private, clean. I even hesitate to write this review as I would like to keep this secret to myself. But Doug ensures all of his guests abide by the rules and leave a light footprint to preserve the beauty of this place. Doug and Zeus were wonderful and we enjoyed the tour of the property. We are appreciative that Doug has decided to share this beautiful property with the public. Can’t wait to return and make more memories here with my family.

Staci, It was a real pleasure to host y’all. Thank you for your review, it really does help folks know about us…we do not advertise…except for our sign on Hwy 127 at our gate…kind of a speakeasy kind of thing, folks find us and recommended us to their friends…we believe in thru the grapevine and word-of-mouth advertising as being the most authentic and reliable. And YES…it is on me to limit the affect of tourism on our land and river. Come back soon. Best, Doug and Zeus

My 15 year old son found this gem and I am so grateful! He and I had a wonderful time and we will be back next year. From the beautiful trees, the clear, cool water swimming hole, to the hidden staircase, paddle boarding the river, the limited number of guest, the rules to insure a pleasant experience for all, the gracious owner, his sweet dog and lovely daughter. I didn’t want to leave!

I enjoyed staying the day here and I will be back again soon. My friend and I enjoyed the swimming hole's cool and clear water for most of our stay. Considering we are in a drought, the water was perfect!

Jacqueline, It was so great to meet both of you and I’m glad you enjoyed your visit! I’m glad our swimming hall was a good fit for what you were looking for and I thought water was refreshing as it’s known to be. Yes, currently as we had discussed before your visit, the Frio River could definitely use some rain. However thankfully we have our private dam and the swimming holes that make it where we still have various enjoyable spots with deep and shallow water, despite the current low level of the river in other areas. Looking forward to your return visit! Doug and Zeus

The natural beauty. The huge trees. The pristine river. We enjoyed the time that Doug took us to tour the area. Not to mention the peaceful time we spent on the river. We will definitely be returning.
