Elk Lodge

Built in 2012, Elk Lodge is a fantastic, five bedroom home with four bathrooms and plenty of spacious gathering areas. You’ll enjoy the large upstairs bedroom which contains a ping pong and pool table, and also a large screen TV! On the exterior of Elk Lodge, you’ll find a waterside deck area (and yes, it has a fire pit!), an expansive covered porch, and of course a covered boat lift and dual jet ski ramp- and more!

Riverside Cottage

Our recently renovated Riverside Cottage is perfect for your Lake LBJ vacation. This home has a bright, open setting and space for twelve! There’s a large, upgraded kitchen area with brand new appliances! And of course on the outside, you’ll find a private boat and jet ski dock just waiting for you. You’ll love cooking dinner, hanging out, and retiring your boat for the evening in this beautiful lakeside cottage.

Paradise Point

Paradise Point is named one of the most luxurious vacation spots on Lake LBJ! It’s perfect for a girls’ getaway or a couple’s retreat! You’ll notice spacious outdoor patios and decks with this properly. There’s a covered patio on the lower level, with comfortable seating, a flat screen TV, and a gorgeous panoramic view of Lake LBJ.

If you’re looking to get away on the Lake this cozy season, these are a few great lodges to check out! Again, we hope you enjoy your vacation, and above all, stay safe (and warm) out on the water!
