Me and my significant other came to this place over the weekend and really enjoyed the scenery, the restaurant as well as the staff. They offer free boat ride and free s'mores kit.I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away to a nice and quiet place.

We recently returned home to the NW from a trip to San Marcos to visit our son and family. We were so glad we found this place! We upgraded to a lake front room...so glad we did that! We enjoyed watching the boats, and all the water fowl. Our room was huge, and perfect to have guests over....plenty of seating...

Valentine's Day stay. Lake front rooms with balcony and tall yellow chairs for watching the lake action. Large rooms, comfortable beds, huge TV, beautiful baths, Keurig coffee maker, s'mores kit. Water craft rentals, pool with lake view. Very romantic at night with lights along the lake making reflections on the water. Highly recommended.

Love every aspect of this hotel. Smore kit, coffee maker. The yellow chairs on our patio were great and comfortble. Loved the walk around the lake in the morning, it was very serene. The Java Shop was pleasant to have open for speciality coffee drinks.

The rooms at the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort were big, the beds comfortable and the big screen TV was outstanding. I have never had more comfortable beds in all of my life. The Decoy restaurant next door is 5 star restaurant

Great place to relax and get away for the weekend. So much to enjoy at and nearby the property. The restaurant was very good as well with a fantastic ambience. Will definitely return when the weather is warmer to enjoy the lake.

“I stayed in room #3012. My room has a door that connected to room 3010. Unfortunately whoever was occupying the room had set there alarm for 5 AM sunday morning. Only problem was they let the alarm chirp for 20 minutes. Then it was quiet for 9 minutes & then the alarm chirped again for another 20 minutes. This continued several times. I finally called to front desk at 5.50AM to see if possibly the room was unoccupied & someone had inadvertently left the alarm clock on. Front desk clerk told me the room was occupied & possibly the guest needed to be up early. Very understandable but I really didn't need awake til 8:30 AM or so. After all my family had rented many rooms as well as the Boat house for my nephews wedding the previous night. I certainly could have used as much sleep as possible do to the late night we had just had. Nonetheless I totally understand the resort can not be held accountable for their guest's lack of common courtesy when it comes to alarm clocks. ”
