Texas Hill Country Outdoor Wedding Venue Amenities

Turn your wedding into an unforgettable getaway for everyone!

River Bluff offers one of the most unique outdoor wedding venue destinations in the Texas Hill Country. There are stunning mountain views and a bazillion stars overhead at night to enjoy.

Jump in the river or hit the trails for an amazing hike. See nature at its finest at nearby Garner State Park or Lost Maples State Park. It’s not unusual to see European axis deer or our native whitetail deer and turkey roaming through the screensaver-like beauty.

Our wonderfully rustic lodges and cabins are nestled along the gorgeous Frio River where you can relax, have an unforgettable time in the river or hit the trails for an amazing walk with nature.

We have 10 acres with stunning mountain views and a bazillion stars overhead at night. Great for families, reunions, weddings and group gatherings.

Our cabins have fully equipped kitchens, 2 BR/BA and larger, free Wi-Fi, DirectTV and we supply linens.  It’s not unusual to see deer and turkey roaming through the screensaver-like beauty of the Texas Hill Country.

The New Twin Cypress Lodge is located on the ‘bluff’ at River Bluff Cabins in Rio Frio TX. This lodge is an ideal getaway for large families or groups due to its’ unique design. This is an approx 1800 sq ft, 2-story lodge featuring a 27′ cathedral ceiling in the great room, rustic limestone rock throughout and a solid glass front revealing what is unquestionably the most magnificent and breathtaking view of the majestic Frio River that you will ever feast your eyes upon. Our promise to you is that this experience will leave you speechless. Words cannot adequately describe it and photographs do not do it justice. You just have to see it with your own eyes to truly believe it.

The Twin Cypress Lodge will sleep 14 comfortably, with its 3 bedrooms 2.5 baths. The upper 2 bedrooms have 4 double bunk beds and 2 queen beds as well as one large bath between them. Yes, the view of a lifetime can be seen from both upstairs bedrooms as well. The lower floor master bedroom features a queen bed, as well as a large private bath, and a half-bath accommodates the kitchen and living area.

Overlooking some of the biggest Cypress trees in Texas, wildlife feeders all around you and a HUGE oak tree that engulfs this beauty, wanna see it all?

Our fully furnished house overlooking the Frio river features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, with living area and kitchen overlooking the river. 2 bedrooms have queen size beds and the 3rd bedroom has two sets of bunks to sleep 4 singles. 42” flat screen and a rustic design add charm to the 900 sqft. house.  There is a leather couch and a leather loveseat in the living room for the 9th person to sleep on.

Nestled as close to the water as we could get is the NEWLY enlarged and upgraded cabin 5.

From the moment you walk onto the deck, all you see is “Heaven”, yes, it’s the views of the Frio River, they are absolutely spectacular.  The deck at the rivers edge, ahhh yes, the deck, probably one of the biggest we have on the property, sit for hours and hours resting in one of the best decks there is on the river.  Shade, yep, plenty, it’s positioned right up under the towering Cypress and Live Oaks.  Views, don’t worry, you probably can’t find any better and in the evening, you can enjoy the 500 led lights that illuminate the Frio, it’s a sight to see.  Not to mention, the stairs down the river are as close as can be and just a very short walk to the pool/splashpad.  Inside is a large main room for all your cooking/dining/chilling needs.  Each bathroom has a full bathtub.  There are 3 large bedrooms, 2 of which have king beds and the 3rd bedroom has a full set of bunk beds.

Don’t pass this one up, there will be a lifetime of memories made in this one!
