5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 10, 2017via mobile
Just visited for our second time. We have kids 5 and 8.5, they LOVE it. Endless activities, good food, great service! Beautiful place. Will go again! I recommend to anyone with kids! Have not gone without kids, but plenty of adult activities also.

    We were enroute back from Central Texas to home location - DFW-area... and in need of a good rest stopover, lunch, and break from the monotony of a long drive.

    We were familiar with Rough Creek Lodge from Safari Club and Dallas Safari Club gatherings, however had not taken the time out to visit, although a number of our friends raved about the attention - service, food, atmosphere, hotel/lodge stay.

    Our two adults and two (near) adult children thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. The server (Travis) was most attentive, helpful, and good was excellent...

    Four different people - and four different starters and main courses... each exceptional - I know, because I tried all of them... sort of table sharing!

    Highly recommend the restaurant... and we plan to come back when more time allows for an overnight stay, dinner, etc.

    Room tip: N/A - as this was a "lunch" stop...

    Just returned from another visit and am impressed with all of the enhancements being made. A batting cage under construction and the fitness center being totally revamped (my 13-year old son approves of both of these projects) provide new and improved activity options. The family pool remains a great way to cool off and a one-hour Mule rental and trek to the top of Gunn Mountain are staples. The fish were biting and don't forget the food, food, and more food. Put your diet on hold during your visit. The overall best thing about RCL is the staff. Everyone makes you feel like family. Can't wait to get back soon.

    Room tip: Just ask when booking. So many rooms have Murphy beds now it is so much easier to sleep people comfortably. My son loves the Murphy bed.

    Well this is our 2nd trip to the Rough creek Lodge, and it was Amazing.. We were yet again pretty much the only family in the pool area. We had the best time going down the slide, it is a small but very fast slide.:) Dinner was AMAZING!!! My steak was excellent.
    This is a pricey place to stay and it would be nice if they gave a discount on the 2nd night. There is plenty to dowhile you stay out here. Very secluded. There are water bottles all over if you get thirsty. Ice cream for the afternoon. Nice family time.. WE Love it here just wish it was a little less expensive. Thanks for a great time.

    OVERVIEW:

    Stayed here twice in 2016 for several days each time. Simply outstanding, upscale Texas rustic ranch and lodge on over 10,000 acres in beautiful area outside Glenrose Texas (a 1.5 hour or so drive south of Dallas Fort Worth).

    Quiet, scenic, rustic lodge, with an excellent restaurant (really). Also offers spa, hiking, stocked lake for bass fishing, shooting (clay, trap, target), paintball, horseback riding, hunting.

    A past Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence winner, winner of several other awards (see their Web site), and very recommended.

    PROPERTY

    As noted, 10,000+ +acre ranch in rolling south Texas landscape. Great setting. A fantastic lodge, with the soaring two story restaurant and its central fireplace, mural over the excellent bar, and patio area overlooking Mallard Lake immediately behind lodge being the star.

    The entrance and walkways are covered and have misters to help keep you cool. There’s an on site spa, gift shop, and, as noted lots of activities. Excellent property.

    ACTIVITIES

    Plenty of options if you’re looking to break the quiet… From simple horseshoes, paddleboats, canoeing, to fishing for bass off dock or with guide in the small Mallard “lake” / pond, to horseback riding, to hiking, to shooting (they offer clay, trap, target), archery, paintball, and hunting.

    Nearby, if taking children, or if big kid at heart, near Glenrose is Dinosaur Valley State Park.

    DINING

    A highlight, and, as the many reviews noted consistently excellent - e.g., “By far the best dining in Texas and surely one of North America’s greatest restaurants”.

    The fare includes fresh take on local foods and is uniformly excellent. The grilled quail is out of this world, and so addictive we, on one occasion, simply asked for a “big old platter” – which they kindly obliged. There was not a meal, a course, a menu item that was not very good to excellent. The staff was prompt, warm, professional.

    And, a special note in re: the chef: my second stay (August 2016), he heard of my dietary restriction (post surgery), sought me out, inquiring on same, and prepared me special dishes each meal. That’s all you need to know about the team there…

    ROOMS

    Stayed in both the main lodge (upper floor, balcony overlooking lake) and in the separate building (to “right” of lodge as you approach it) that contains perhaps half dozen rooms on one level. The rooms keep the same TX upscale ranch / rustic style, and are excellent.

    One large King in main lodge room with balcony, and two queen beds in floor level room in free standing bldg. All quite comfortable with plush pillows, mattress, and great linens. Great sundries, toiletries, supplies in room, also safe, refrigerator.

    Excellent bath – including free standing tub and large shower with stone tile, great linens, with separated WC. All offered great views and were very quiet. Very nice.

    SUMMARY

    Excellent lodge, fantastic restaurant, great staff, lots to do and quiet and beautiful if you just want down time. Very recommended.
