Saturday night, January 26, 2008

On Saturday, our destination will be the small ranching town of Leakey, Texas. Due to the size of our group, we'll be taking over three resorts: The River Haven Cabins, the Frio Canyon Lodge, and Camp Live Oak.

Now, please note that neither of these accommodations are like a Holiday Inn. The River Haven Cabins and Frio Canyon Lodge are both clean and each has a unique atmosphere to it (the Tourmaster has not personally visited Camp Live Oak.) This is a remote location so choices are very limited, however, these choices are actually pretty nice in the Tourmaster's opinion. If you've never stayed at anywhere but a Hilton or Holiday Inn, these will be different but interesting and full of local culture. Think of it as an adventure!


River Haven Cabins


River Haven Cabins are located on 6.5 acres of land which is located on a bluff overlooking a beautiful view of the Frio River, better known as the Rio Frio. Two paths are available at River Haven for river access. Each log cabin at River Haven offers a beautiful view of the river from the porch. They are equipped with central heat and air. Also included in each cabin is satellite DISH TV. They have two bedrooms (queen beds) with one or two bathrooms, a living room with a fireplace and a hide-a-bed, and an all electric kitchen. Everything is furnished (linens, towels, dishes) except for shampoo and hair dryer. The Tourmaster was impressed with the views from each of the cabins and cleanliness of the rooms.
(click on the picture above for more information about the River Haven Cabins)

Reservations and Room Rates
  • A total of 14 cabins have been blocked for our group.
  • You can choose from the following cabins and corresponding special rates:
    • 3 cabins which have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one bathroom for each bedroom) for $95 per night or
    • 9 cabins which have 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom at $85 per night or
    • 1 cabin which has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom at $75 per night or
    • 1 cabin which has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms at $170 per night
  • Each cabin also has a queen sleeper sofa in the living area (so technically each cabin can sleep 6 persons)
  • Rates are for up to 4 persons per cabin (except the 4 bdrm cabin); $7.50 per additional person
  • Total taxes are 6% in addition to the room rate.
The 2 bedroom/2 bath cabins are ideal for couples/pairs who know each other. With separate rooms and bathrooms, it's like two separate motel rooms under one roof. If you would prefer to have your own private room and bath, then you may consider renting a 2 bedroom/1 bath or, save some money and rent one of the rooms at Frio Canyon Lodge. The main advantage of the River Haven Cabins is the beautiful view from each of the cabins.

Camp Live Oak


Please Note: These accommodations have not been personally visited by the Tourmaster so he cannot give any assurances about the quality of the facilities or grounds (all other accommodations were personally reviewed by the Tourmaster). Camp Live Oak was added later to meet the accommodation needs of the growing group

Camp Live Oak has 8 quaint but comfy cabins. The original 6 were built in the 1930's and have been renovated to bring them into the new millenium. They all have that feel-good-atmosphere and that relaxed Frio ambiance. It is still owned and operated by the same family. Each room includes a private full shower/bath, heat and air, full kitchen with dishes and utensils, coffee maker, microwave, and linens and bath towels (but you should bring your own shampoo, hair dryer, and toilet paper.)
