Never realized how far the resort was off from Austin TX until I got there. Other than that, the price was excellent especially when the BOGO was included. Special kudos to the staff, they performed excellent and the game room provided made the stay easier for the kids

We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the unit. The two bathrooms have been remodeled. Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen and carpets are a bit tired. Need some more updating but we are satisfied with the unit.

Good location to lake Travis and resort gives you LVPOA pass to access 2 private boat ramps. When booking tell staff you have a boat and they'll book your room closer to boat parking. Property is great with 30+ deer every morning that will eat out of your hand. The front desk sells deer corn. Room was clean except for... More

clean, well-maintained, courteous staff. Very professional grounds well-maintained. We would be glad to go back and spend another week next year. Lots of activities such as hiking boating swimming etc. on the wake. Lots of historical sites to see in the area we had a great time.

Plenty of room, clean and comfortable. It is older and I understand they are in the process of remodeling some of the units - ours had not been renovated. Midway through our week, my wife was stung by a scorpion while getting her clothes out of the small closet. The staff was very helpful and provided a couple of different... More

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 kids room had no TV and the TV in the other room was barely audible especially when the bathroom light together with the vent is turned on. The Dining and computer chair was uncomfortable, a little bit padding will fix it.”
