Family business is serving up down-home hospitality

Sitting on the deck of Rio Cibolo Ranch, listening to the gentle waters of Cibolo Creek flowing nearby, it’s hard to believe that this serene setting is just 25 minutes from downtown San Antonio. It’s also hard to imagine that the 130 acres where this peaceful entertainment/special event venue is situated was under four feet of water during the flood of 1998. The Christopher family—which owns and operates Rio Cibolo Ranch (RCR)—remembers those days well. Flood waters ruined one of the main facilities of RCR: the Lazy Lily Riverhouse. But today, with the flood waters long-receded, a new Lazy Lily has been constructed. This 3,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is used for groups of 200 or less. And the site of the original Lazy Lily is now that peaceful deck overlooking Cibolo Creek.
