New Years’ during Covid doesn’t have to be a drag! You CAN still celebrate the end of 2020 safely with your loved ones. 

With the novel coronavirus pandemic still impacting countries globally, most places have all but curtailed their traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations. The CDC strongly recommends that people avoid large groups and indoor holiday parties that include members outside of your household. 

While many of us are opting for “digital celebrations” with distant family and friends to ring in the New Year, know that you have another safe option to celebrate this new beginning.


Put a cherry on top of this most extraordinary year by planning a socially-distanced open-air lakeside New Years’ Eve celebration with your household at Cedar Lodge Texas. 

We can guarantee this New Year’s will be just as festive, celebratory, and meaningful as years past. With the right amount of planning, you can have an incredible New Year’s Eve bash close to home. Create lasting memories and hopeful perspectives for your loved ones as you all ring in New Years’ during Covid at our Texas lake resort. 

                                                                                         5 Reasons To Celebrate New Years During Covid at Cedar Lodge

1. Safety

Consider this: Celebrating New Years’ at our lake resort during Covid could be safer than a trip to your neighborhood grocery store. With plans to spend the holiday at Cedar Lodge Texas, you leave your safe private home, get into your own private vehicle, and drive to your private Texas lake cabin. We even offer no contact check-ins upon request. Public interaction is not required between your home and your cabin rental!

2. Location

No planes, crowds, lines, or worries. Our central Texas location makes us easily drivable from anywhere in the Lone Star State or surrounding states.  

3.  Socially-Distanced Accommodations

Our property boasts just 13 Texas lake cabin rentals, meaning there is generous space between each of the cabins around our resort. 

4.  Fireworks

Nearby vendors will be selling fireworks until midnight on New Year’s Eve. You can find plenty of fireworks stands on your way to our family-friendly lake resort. There are several in Kingsland, Buchanan Dam, and the nearby town of Burnet. 

Currently, there are no fireworks bans in place, so Cedar Lodge guests are free to create as big (or small) of a display as they wish!
