Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Angela,



I just wanted to write to thank you so much for all you did to make our stay so enjoyable and relaxing. Traveling to Texas for my surgery with my entire family in tow was a stressful adventure, to be sure! But from the moment we drove through those gates, I had a sense of calm that stayed with me the whole time we were there. From the cookies on the table greeting us on the first day, to the impromptu pony rides in the yard for the girls, , you did so much to make us feel not just welcome but so well cared for.



One day as I was walking along the road on my way out to greet the horses, I was struck by the beauty and serenity of my surroundings -- the sun felt so warm on my face as I looked across the beautiful cloudless sky to the pastures, the horses, and beyond. It was at that moment I had to remind myself of something: this is an experience I was having because of my cancer.

Sometimes life has a funny way of delivering its gifts. But however we came to meet you and visit your beautiful ranch, it is an experience I will cherish forever. The experiences my kids had were so unique for them, and I know they will all have fond memories of our special Texas trip. I am so grateful to you for all you did to make our stay even more special.



I hope you were happy with how we left the place, and that we will be welcome to stay at your beautiful home again in the future!



With love,



Paulette

Perfect house for a birthday weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Rio Lago Ranch was wonderful! We live in Houston and wanted to find somewhere close, but out of the city, for a 35th birthday celebration. Rio Lago was exactly what we were looking for - it was spacious, beautiful, and peaceful. The weather was cold and rainy the whole weekend, but thanks to the gorgeous covered porch, we were able to spend the entire weekend outside playing ping-pong, foosball, and cards. Angela was very easy to work with when it came to renting the house and was very responsive to all my questions. We are already planning our next visit back to Rio Lago Ranch and look forward to making it a yearly destination for our family and friends.

Thanksgiving at Rio Lago

  • 5 of 5
There were 8 adults and 4 children (4 and under) and the house accommodated us all. The grounds are beautiful and even though it was a bit on the chilly side, we canoed on the lake right outside our door. One nice feature was all the gates on the LARGE wrap around porch, which made it secure for the babies to run around without falling down the stairs. The large kitchen table made it possible for all of us to sit together with the children for Thanksgiving dinner. We had an outside fire and roasted marshmallows in the evening. The children loved seeing, feeding and petting the horses...and so did the adults. We played games on the huge lawn between the house and lake and the children loved running around. We saw deer, geese, ducks; sat on the swing and chairs on the porch and enjoyed the view. A good time was had by all.

Wonderful family place

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about this place: the downstairs "great" room, the large porch, the comfortable seating inside and out, the incredible view of the pond, and the terrific swimming pool. The location feels very secluded, but you are only minutes away from a grocery store. We will be back!

Tranquility at its best!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Rio Lago Ranch is ALWAYS perfect!
With the most peaceful country setting, this is an amazing place to “get away from it all”.
Charming, immaculate home and ranch with plenty of room for a large family or gathering of good friends, inside AND out. The owners take great pride in this place and it shows.
It just doesn’t get any better than this and we hope to return again soon.
Thank you for having us!

Perfect Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5
Rio Lago Ranch provides such a fun, relaxing, and enjoyable vacation experience, and it's just outside the Houston area! There are so many activity options (swimming, billiards, table tennis, football, volleyball, canoeing, nature hikes, building a bon fire, etc) and the view is so picturesque! We had fun exploring the trail around the lake, playing fetch with our dogs, and soaking in the peaceful sunrise each morning from the porch. The house and property was clean, the catered food was delicious, and the caretakers are so friendly. I highly recommend this place for family vacations (with kids of all ages), business getaways, conferences, church retreats, or anyone who wants a relaxing time away from the hustle of the city. A+!!!

Country Haven

  • 5 of 5
We had the BEST time out at Rio Lago Ranch! The location is convenient, yet feels as if you are in a remote country haven. The landscape, trees, lake and property are absolutely beautiful. This place is perfect for anyone who enjoys nature walks, sight-seeing, outdoor sports, swimming, lounging or just a cozy, comfortable house by a lake. Wildlife is abundant, and so are views of sunrise/sunsets everyday. The owner is extremely nice, and very helpful. She even catered a meal! I will definitely tell my friends and family about this ranch. We had such a wonderful experience there and will return for another stay.
