We took our two kids here last Spring and found the resort to be not anything special. The rooms are clean and comfortable enough but have about as much charm as a dorm room. The restaurant was TERRIBLE, extremely slow and very expensive, and there aren't many alternatives in the area so they have you trapped. They also nickel and dime you, charging $3.00 for smores around the fireplace in the evening, while other resorts give you these things at no charge. The area is pretty, but we would not go back to this resort.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the northeast shoreline of Lake Buchanan, Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park and Resort is an ideal Texas Hill Country get-away that offers the comforts of a full-service nature resort and the tranquility of a scenic, 940-acre nature park. Uniquely nestled in the Upper Highland lakes region of the Texas Hill Country, Canyon of the Eagles takes its name from the American Bald Eagles that winter in the area. The park showcases the flora and fauna of Lake Buchanan and provides a refuge for the endangered Black-Capped Vireo, Golden-Cheeked Warbler, and American Bald Eagle. Common wildlife sightings include rabbit, deer, roadrunner, snake, bobcat, feral pig, and armadillo. Throughout the spring and early summer, wildflowers bloom in abundance! Relax and enjoy one of our 61 eco-friendly guest rooms. Each room’s decor comfortably reflects its natural surroundings with southwest style furniture, stained cement floors, and sustainable amenities and linens. A cozy retreat from modern life; we encourage you to unplug and re-connect, with yourself, your family and nature.
