I always thought that the Antlers was only a hotel with some converted rail cars and depot but upon further investigation, they have some very nice cottages and cabins on what is actually a very expansive property. It is perfect for family reunions or just a quiet weekend for 2. It has a restaurant (Grand Central Café) next to the hotel that serves daily breakfast and lunch and dinners on the weekend. They have a huge stretch of waterfront that affords full access to lake LBJ and its location makes day trips to numerous hill country wineries and attractions very practical. The beautiful grounds make for a very serene and relaxing setting. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for family of foxes that inhabit the property. A great place to stay for the price.
