Okay, we all know how great Moms are. Perhaps we shouldn’t say anything like, “Giving birth was the easy part!”, but really, just bringing children into the world is an amazing feat, only to be followed with more acts of nearly inhuman strength and grace and love—which don’t stop just because we grow up. And to the Moms that we happen to be married to? Well, they inspire a whole different kind of love and admiration.
So why don’t you round up that special Mom and the kids, tell them to pack for fun (and a night out for Mom!) and head on down to Rough Creek Lodge for some extra special Mom lovin’! When you get here, she can enjoy being with the family without worrying about cooking, cleaning up—or any other kind of work for that matter—with a bevy of activities that will keep everyone active and entertained, from fishing contests to hay rides. Then, occupy the kids at the pool and shuttle Mom off to the spa with a glass of wine for an amazing massage and pedicure.
At the end of the day, take the children to the Kid’s Ranch for dinner and activities while you and that wonderful Mom in your life enjoy an elegant and romantic dinner for two.
But that’s not all: on Mother’s Day, we put on our famous Mother’s Day Brunch, complete with our favorite Rough Creek traditions, like RCL Eggs Benedict or Honey Mustard Glazed Ham, topping it off with our signature Crème Brûlée with Berries. Don’t forget the Mimosas!
We guarantee that your extra special Mom will feel pampered and absolutely indulged—we’ll make sure of it—after all, we have extra special Moms in our lives, too! And here at Rough Creek Lodge, we are experts at pampering and indulging… it’s the perfect place to spend Mother’s Day.

We just very recently hosted a wedding here at Rough Creek Lodge. It was perfect…just approaching the entry of the Lodge the wildflowers are in full swing, which really set the tone and mood for a wonderful event!
Friday night’s rehearsal dinner kicked-off the weekend’s festivities. Following dinner everyone convened by the Back Terrace fire pit to enjoy cocktails and s’Mores. After a good night’s rest, it was the “big day”… the ceremony itself was held at our beautiful country Chapel, complete with succulent wreaths adorning the front doors to two adorable flower girls who adeptly carried out their duties. Afterward, the wedding party once again chose the Back Terrace for the reception, complete with band, gorgeous floral arrangements and off-the-chain cuisine.
It’s Spring! It’s the perfect time to begin the search for a venue for your special day. Why not Rough Creek Lodge? Our rustic elegance offers an indelible experience: we promise your wedding will be stylishly unique, beautifully done and impeccably executed—yours.

Ah, Spring! It’s a great time of year to be in the kitchen cooking! Spring brings us many wonderful vegetables. Some that we are featuring in the coming weeks are Pea Tendrils, Wild Morel Mushrooms, Fiddlehead Ferns and Ramps, as well as other fabulous surprises. We planted our garden this week and will have all types of Heirloom Tomatoes in a few short months as well as Okra and Peppers. And our herb garden is going, too: Basil, Thyme and Oregano, just to name a few.
But vegetables and herbs are only part of our labors of love. We are currently working on our house made Salamis—we just finished our first batch of Dry Chorizo Salami! And this week at table in particular, we are highlighting our house made sausages: Smoked Venison Sausage and Kobe Beef Sausage (we serve these regularly, so don’t worry if you can’t make it in this week!).
We continue to corn our own Beef Brisket for sandwiches at lunch, as well as cure and smoke our own Bacon for the Warm Spinach Salad!
It is my pleasure to make sure that your culinary experience here at Rough Creek Lodge is one that keeps bringing you back. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Once again this year, Rough Creek Lodge plays host to The Texas Spartan Beast Race, where athletes are put to the ultimate test of strength, skill and determination. The Texas Spartan Beast is unlike most races—it’s an obstacle course that will test your inner warrior. This race is not for the weak, whether you take on the “Spartan Sprint”, “Super Spartan”, or the “Spartan Beast,” you will be pushed to the limits physically and mentally. Many have stepped up to the challenge but few have walked out a victor. The time is now to challenge your friends and build your army of runners to help you get across that finish line! Teams are required to have a minimum of four people—and there is no limit to the number of teams!
On December 8 and 9, warriors will take on 10-12 miles that will surely challenge even those who have what it takes. After mile three, runners are allowed to make a “dignified exit.” The best of the best will move on to two-six hours of HELL. But while the journey may be daunting, the reward is sweet! First place male and female finishers in our Competitive wave on Saturday will take home $1,500, 2nd place $750, and 3rd place $250. Do you have what it takes to compete with the best? C’mon out to Rough Creek Lodge and give it all you’ve got!
