It is a delightful property and was so quiet and relaxing. We arrived a little late and couldn't find the wine, but it was completely wonderful! I didn't want to leave the property for meetings the next day. I'll be back.

From the moment you drive into the drive for the Inn at Chachalaca Bend, you know you are someplace special. It is set in the semi-tropical lower Rio Grande Valley along a resaca (old oxbow lake) with lush grounds. I was there after a fun but tiring fishing trip and was glad to have a luxurious place to relax. The...

We attended a wedding here and the setting is excellent. The Management and staff are attentive and will do all they can to please. It is on a lake with wonderful views. Recommend highly. We did not stay over but those who did were very pleased.

Absolutely beautiful Inn in a natural native habitat. Loved staying here for four days photographing birds on the property. After traveling and birding the various birding hot spots in Rio Grande Valley for over a month, it was a great respite to be able to relax and photograph from the comfort of this gorgeous place. Donna and Barbie are great...

We truly love this place! The Inn at Chachalaca Bend has beautiful luxurious rooms with comfortable beds (I never wanted to get up in the mornings because it was so cozy!), nice Jacuzzi tubs, porches, and tasteful decorations. The grounds are gorgeous and lush, with short walking paths, a waterfront view, and a thick foliage that makes this place feel...

I went birding the surrounding area each day from sun up to sun down. Next time I don't think I will leave the property! Two birds still eluded me. The Altamira Oriole and the Buff-bellied Hummingbird. I came back early my last night and saw the Oriole, I stayed for breakfast the day of my departure and saw the hummingbird....

We're getting to stay in the lodge here, and it's absolutely amazing. The decor is so unique and attractive and the woodwork and parquetry on the facade, floors, and stairway make this like no B&B I've ever seen--I feel like I'm in an art museum or something! And as if this wasn't stimulating and rejuvenating enough, we got great looks...

We spent a couple of nights here while on a birding trip to the RGV with my sister and her family. It's a very pretty spot and our hosts were very gracious. They were very accommodating with muffins and items in the refrigerator for our breakfast the morning we had an early morning boat trip planned. The grounds are very...

We always enjoy staying in upstairs rooms and spend many hours sitting on the balcony watching wildlife. It is disappointing that we didn't get our rooms straightened, trash emptied, fresh towels, etc over the weekend but the food was great and the luxurious linens and decor made up for it. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We had a...
