There’s nothing quite like having the whole family all in one place, but these days it seems like doing so has only become harder. Relatives often live far from one another and people tend to get caught up in the day-to-day. If you’re yearning for everyone to be together again, then why not host a Texas family reunion? From catching up with long-lost cousins to meeting the newest grandchild for the first time, reunions are perfect for reliving old memories with the ones you love while also creating new ones.
If you’ve been thinking of hosting a Texas family reunion or have volunteered to plan one, you might be wondering where in the world it should be. Oftentimes, the most difficult part of planning a family reunion is finding the ideal place to host it. Lucky for you, we know a thing or two about throwing a great Texas family reunion and believe there’s no better place to host one than right here at Cedar Lodge.
We guarantee an authentic Texas Hill Country experience. From fishing with grandad to swimming in the lake with the cousins, Cedar Lodge is the perfect setting to make lasting memories with your family.
Here are six reasons why you should book your next Texas family reunion at Cedar Lodge!
Location, Location, Location!
Nestled in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Cedar Lodge is positioned conveniently near several major cities. About an hour west of Austin, two hours north of San Antonio, and four hours from Dallas and Houston, our central location makes it easy for family members to get here, no matter if they’re driving or flying.
Located directly between Burnet and Llano, Cedar Lodge is the perfect base for exploring all the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Surrounded by rolling hills and situated on the idyllic Lake Buchanan, the surroundings here are truly breathtaking. A tranquil and off-the-beaten-path escape from the big city, you’ll find that our wide open spaces and serene environment will make your trip one to remember.
Rustic Cabins Fit for Every Family
Not much beats a rustic family retreat in the heart of the picturesque Hill Country. With 13 private cabins, we can accommodate families ranging anywhere from 4 to 14 people, with the capacity to host up to 91 total overnight guests. Clustered around a granite outcropping and all in close proximity to one another, you can enjoy the privacy of your own cabin while still staying close to the rest of your loved ones.
Hand-built in the 1940s, our cedar cabins make for a cozy and quintessential Hill Country stay. Each of our cabins include AC and heat, a private bathroom with a shower, a kitchenette with a full-size fridge, and all the small cooking appliances you might need, including a coffee maker! Our favorite feature though is our private charcoal grills and picnic tables perfect for summer barbecues.
An Ideal Venue for
Large Family Gatherings
Not only are we able to accommodate a multitude of overnight guests, but our two gathering halls are well-suited for hosting large events. Choose from either our Meeting Hall with seating for up to 40 people or our Great Hall with room for up to 120 people. Whichever you choose, you’ll have access to a full kitchen, outdoor patio, tables and chairs, as well as TVs. Each kitchen also comes equipped with all the necessary cooking essentials you might need to whip up a feast.
Apart from hosting a family dinner or backyard barbecue, our gathering halls make a great venue for a game night or any celebrations that may be in order. With all your loved ones under one roof, it’s a wonderful place to enjoy good food, great conversation, and fantastic company.
Endless On-site Activities for All Ages
When it comes to planning a reunion, one of the most stressful parts (besides finding the right venue) is ensuring everyone has a good time. At Cedar Lodge Texas, we pride ourselves on offering activities that family members of every age can enjoy. With countless recreational activities to choose from and plenty of outdoor space to explore, we’re certain no one will be bored.
With everything from a basketball court to a swimming pool, our on-site park is a fabulous way to get the whole family spending time with each other outdoors. Spark up some family-friendly competition by challenging each other to a soccer match or hosting a volleyball tournament.
If you have a few members in your group who prefer more leisure activities, they’re sure to enjoy a classic game of washers, a round of horseshoes, or a game of cornhole. Have some folks who aren’t into games? Our swimming pool is the perfect place to sit back, relax, and soak up the sun while still being close to all the action.
Lakeside Fun for
the Entire Family
With direct lake access right across the road, a day at the lake should no doubt be on the agenda. Our exclusive boat rentals for cabin guests give you access to pontoon boats, jet skis, canoes, paddle boards, and kayaks.
For those that prefer to admire the lake from afar, our private sandy beach is the perfect oasis for lounging lakeside. If you’re searching for a little recreation, head out to our nearby fishing pier for some excellent striped bass fishing.
When the day starts to wind down, take advantage of our guided sunset cruise on a 22’ pontoon boat. If the whole family wants to join, try a private charter with Vanishing Texas River Cruises for up to 120 people. No matter what you decide to do, there’s no denying a day on the lake will help you create lasting memories you’ll cherish for years to come.
Outdoor Adventure at Your Fingertips
A trip to the Texas Hill Country wouldn’t be complete without a bit of outdoor adventure. Luckily, there’s plenty of picturesque nature to be explored. Take the family out to one of the many nearby State Parks to marvel at the stunning scenery. Only a quick drive from the Lodge, one of our favorite parks to visit is Inks Lake State Park. The park is home to nine miles of hiking trails and a popular Texas swimming spot, Devil’s Waterhole.
For a more leisure outdoor activity, we highly recommend one of the area’s excellent guided fishing tours. Those relatives who are not as physically-able are sure to enjoy a relaxing afternoon fishing on the lake. Famous for its striped bass, a fishing trip on Lake Buchanan is a great way to take in the natural beauty of your surroundings while spending some quality time with loved ones.
