Stayed just before peak season and was pleasantly surprised. The suite was rather spacious and comfortable. The master bathroom had recently been renovated and looks nice, but we all prefered the guest bathroom. The water was warmer faster. It is a nice little out of the way place. Other reviews mention stores and restaurants close by, but what they don't... More

My husband and I were here for a week long, Hill Country getaway. It's so quiet and relaxing here. The units are dated, as previous reviews mentioned, but very clean, spacious and comfortable. We loved sitting on our back porch enjoying the view. A full kitchen, two full sized bathrooms and two bedrooms were plenty for the two of us!... More

The place are very nice and quiet. You can enjoy the different views. My grandkid bring food to the deers . The place are very safety for the kids. The only thing negative was that the swimmingpoll is repairing in this season.

Very nice and clean. A little dated but it fit our needs. It was great feeding the deer every morning and evening. People in the office were helpful. We would stay again. There are places to eat within 4 or 5 miles, some delivery also. There are several HOA parks on the lake which you have access to for picnicking,... More

Rural, out of the way, very quiet place. Rustic but all the conveniences you would expect. Large herd of very friendly deer to entertain the visitors. Right on Lake Travis, yet close to all the activity in the Texas Hill Country. I loved it, especially in the time of the wildflower season.

This is a very quiet resort that has dated but clean units. It is outside of town but not directly on the lakeshore. It seems suitable for a individual retreat or an uncomplicated adult family vacation. We did miss having a service that we usually find at most hotels such as in-room internet but at least the cable tv worked.... More

The place was very dated, but the service was spectacular. We have never seen such a population of deer roam freely throughout in the early morning hours or during sunset. Because the lodge is located on a dead end road there was never any fear for children to play outside.

My condo was spacious and clean. The decor is a little tired but everything worked. The location is 30 to 45 minutes out of the main city, in a semi-rural area down the Lago Vista peninsula. Groceries are about 6 miles away so stock up on the way down. Lots of very tame deer all about so must be mindful... More

We loved all the deer right in the yard and they would eat right out of your hands. The pool was clean but very cold, but we did take a dip, just once, after all it was Jan!! We would come back to this place again.
