They bought Cedar Lodge in 2013 in order to restore it as a venue for groups of all types to host reunions, conferences, retreats and family vacations. They live right across the street and offer guests a personal experience as an extension of their family.

They haven’t always been in the resort business, although they’ve had a lot of hospitality experience throughout their lifetime.  They have a heart for families and desire to support families by offering a venue for reunions.

Bryan, as a graduate of Michigan State University, joined the US Air Force and was trained as a pilot.  He flew small single engine planes (the O2), mulit-engine planes (the B52) and several sizes in between.  After 20 years of service and 16 moves, he retired and went to work for American Airlines in Fort Worth.   After 18 years of working for American and training their pilots, he “retired” to build their first resort on Lake Buchanan.  Nine years later, they bought Cedar Lodge.

Gwen met Bryan at Michigan State University, but graduated from TCU with a degree in nursing.  She worked as an RN of and on during their Air Force career while raising their two children, Jeff and Kelly-Anne.  Jeff lives in Austin and has 9 year old twins.  Kelly-Anne lives in San Antonio and has 3 children, ages 14, 12, and 9.  Both Bryan and Gwen enjoy the precious times they spend with their family.

They look forward to meeting you and hosting your family reunion or group gathering at a special piece of Texas paradise…Cedar Lodge.
