About Us

With its fountains, columns, roses, gardens, fireplaces, antiques, designer decor, and flawless catering, our collection of historic buildings plays host to dozens of wonderful weddings every year. The Crystal River Inn offers big-city sophistication, or country simplicity if you prefer, at small-town prices. We limit our wedding business to only one per day, in sizes ranging all the way from tiny elopements up to 200-person extravaganzas. Our inn is in the Historic District of San Marcos, one of Central Texas' most beautiful towns. We have 12 beautiful designer guest rooms if a destination wedding is your wish.

The inn's courtyard, gardens, dining and living areas hold up to 200 people, but we cater even larger events all over Central Texas. We've been voted "best place to have a wedding" and "best caterer" in Hays County multiple times. Ours is an indoor-outdoor venue with rose gardens and fountains for the ceremony, and a huge brick-floored courtyard area for the reception. The adjacent dining room has a fireplace, piano, wet bar and atrium. We use lots of candlelight and tiny white lights to create a magical feeling in our garden. The inn is beautiful without being stuffy or formal. We are known for comfortable, elegant simplicity, for our ability to smoothly handle late notice or last minute weddings, for memorable and fun destination weddings, and for being an affordable all-inclusive venue where brides can relax, enjoy and let us handle all the details.
