The Lodge at River Oaks was the perfect setting for our April wedding. My husband and I decided to make our wedding weekend a vacation for us and our families and we stayed in the house for five days. The house was plenty of room for both of our families (20+ people) to spread out, and the pool and playground provided hours of entertainment for our nieces and nephews. The owner, Dale, is the nicest man you will meet and extremely accommodating. He kept in contact with us during our stay to make sure everything was perfect. On the morning of our wedding at 5:00 am, a giant thunderstorm with 60 mph winds blew through. The property was a mess – trees were split in half, branches and leaves were scattered throughout the site, the wooden playset was smashed to pieces, and the pergola over the hot tub had crashed to the ground. Dale had crews out at the property by 7:30 am cleaning the grounds, and by 2:00 that afternoon, you would have never known a storm hit that morning other than a few puddles. Dale was my superhero on my wedding day! Our families and guests loved this property just as much as we did, and it provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. Highly recommended; if you are at all considering staying here, just do it – you won’t regret it!
This property helped make my wedding feel like a fairy tale. The grounds are absolutely stunning. All of our photographs from the wedding came out so beautifully and everyone raved about how gorgeous the property was.
From the covered outdoor dance floor, the pool, volleyball court, outdoor bar, game room, outdoor facilities, grill this home had everything! And since we had a lot of out of town guests having bedding, towels, cookware etc. already there was so convenient.
Dale and Anita the property owners are wonderful, attentive and so easy to work with. They helped make my wedding stress free and like a mentioned truly a fairy tale. It was a perfect weekend in a perfect home!
This property is perfect for any occasion. Everything is pleasing to look at all around you....the river, the pool w the side bar, the yard with all of the lights in the trees, the deck over looking the Hill Country and the river. The volleyball court was borderline professional w great sand and having a basketball goal in the driveway was a nice addition. All of the amenities and bedding were way above average and everything functioned properly. There is plenty of space to do anything you can think of. The only incident we had was when we ran out of propane on our last day because we didnt want to leave the house...so we just grilled nonstop all weekend. This happened late and the owner was very quick to come replace it for us. The owner was very attentive and was always available to attend to our needs. And we are a very needy group. Five stars all day. I will stay there again if I am able.
The owner Dale, gave us a detailed tour of the beautiful home and the incredible property. Our son's wedding reception was there on 10//10/15 but family stayed from 10/08/15 thru 10/11/15. EVERYONE was impressed as they should be. Dale added a (approx) 25' x 80' open post and beam pavilion we used for the DJ and dance floor. (That is not shown in the pictures) that is in full view of the river. Another item not shown is that he has a separate building with a Men and Women air conditioned bathrooms for the outside events...this is no port-a-potty, it is tastefully built and smartly located. The grounds were magnificent, oh, and another thing that is not shown is the full size beach sand volleyball court. There is also a Car Port and attached air conditioned building that has refrigerators and a chest freezer. Just a fantastic facility and worth every penny. The owner Dale could not be more accommodating.
Dale and Anita were so great with this rental. I organized a family get together and their home was perfect for us in every way. The pool, the pavilion, the volleyball court, the large home with plenty of rooms and beds for us all. Great all around place for a very large group. Close to the Austin Airport. We will for sure rent again!
We rented this house for our wedding on 23 May 2015 after looking for a scenic and cozy home that could accommodate a large group. Dale's ranch house was the perfect fit! Dale was very easy to communicate with before the wedding and let us visit the house several times to show friends and family and to figure out where/how to set things up. I agree with the last review that the pictures on here do not do the house justice. It is PERFECT for a wedding! Dale recently built a cedar dance hall complete with beautiful wood beams and hanging lights. It was the perfect space to have our ceremony and reception. There are also very nice (surprisingly nice!) outside bathrooms for guests to use. Leading up to the big day, Dale was in contact with me a lot about the weather and the conditions of the grass. It was a weekend filled with thundershowers and tornado warnings, but everything worked out because of the set-up outside. Dale has put a lot of heart into this house and really goes above and beyond to help. I should also mention that Anita, the woman who works for him, was very kind during our stay and ran over anything we needed last minute including a new propane tank for the BBQ. If you aren't looking for a place to hold a wedding, this property is nonetheless a great choice. We were able to fit both our families in the house comfortably with plenty of space for us to all gather around. We loved being able to use the spa and the pool table. Thank you, Dale and Anita!
