We loved the Cabins on the Lake! We needed to get away from the hussle & bussle of the subburbs & the cabins were quiet & relaxing. Loved that they have direct access to the water even though the water is really low due to a long drought. We were able to canoe & take long walks around the lake.... More

Thank you, Mandy, for writing such a great review. We're glad you escaped the busy suburban life and enjoyed getting away to enjoy canoeing, walks along the shore, starry nights and time with family. We trust you returned home refreshed and we look forward to having you back soon. More

We were part of a large group that stayed here over the New Year. Though the weather did not cooperate, the resort itself was wonderful. The cabins, though small, were clean and warm. The beds are small - so my wife slept on the foldout futon and I on the actual bed. The one suggestion I have is to build... More

Our cabin was well maintained and clean. We were very disappointed that the bed was a standard size bed so we didn't sleep well either of the nights we stayed there. For the money we spent per night, we should have felt rested when leaving. Also, I was never able to get connected to wifi. The owner tried to help... More

What a lovely location for some alone time with my husband. All of the stress that comes with living in a big city like Houston just goes away. The proprietor, Gwen was very helpful. Loved staying there!!!!!!

We recently attended a family reunion at the Willow Point Resort Reunion Center. Much of the family stayed on the reunion center side; however, by the time my immediate family made reservations, all that was left were the lakefront cabins at the adjacent Willow Point property. Gwen was fabulous to deal with. The cabins were beautifully maintained - almost better... More

We just spent 2 nights at Willow Point Resort. It was wonderful! The proprietors, Brian and Gwen were very very accommodating! My husbands favorite part of the stay was taking out the (free of charge) canoe, and swimming in the lake.
