The Frio House sits on a bluff overlooking the crystal clear Frio River.  It consists of the main house, the attached bunk room, & a guest apartment.  The house has steps & railing leading down to the river below. It accomodates up to 15 people; perfect for that family vacation you have been wanting to take.

 

The main house living area has vaulted ceilings and an open floorplan.  The spaciousness of the living area makes visiting with your family and friends easy.  Some people can hang out on the barstools with the cook in the kitchen, some can visit at the dining table with views to the mountain valley & river, and some can hang out on the couch in the living room to watch t.v....all while being able to visit with everyone.  Prior guests have found the house to be very cozy and a great place to reconnect with family and friends.  Be sure to check out all the guest reviews found on the various pages.

 

We are currently updating the house with fresh paint, new decor, & bedding.  Updated bedroom & guest apartment pictures will be shared soon!

 

Below you will find a breakdown of the property to show the sleeping arrangements & ammenities.  Just a reminder, all bed linens are provided but be sure to bring your own towels!  The Frio House does not allow pets or smoking to help keep the place clean & tidy for all guests and decrease the risk of fire hazard.

“We had a wonderful time at your house. We are all guilty of being work-a-holics and getting away from the hectic daily grind could not have been better at a more relaxing and beautiful place. We got up early and hit the river...COLD!  We had a chnace to reconnect as a family with love, laughter, dancing , singing, games, & staying up late to talk.  Our family gathering was a true blessing and well spent here.  The spaciousness of your property was very accomodating to our large group.  We made happy memories together at your place.  Our families will remember your beautiful place in the future for our annual Family Frio Float.”

“Our family had a great time and especially enjoyed the porch and the river!  Very peaceful and close to tubing!  The house is very comfortable and the beds are soft.  Smores on the firepit and steak & shrimp on the BBQ - does not get much better! Especially with the people you love most in the world!”
