When you’re taking a family vacation in Texas, there are a few things you need to look for. For starters, you want to make sure that wherever you’re going has plenty of activities. The last thing you need is for your little ones to get bored and start to get upset and/or impatient. The second thing you need to find out is if you, as parents, can have some downtime to relax while your kids run around. And last but not least, you want to make sure that there’s a balance of family time. After all, you go on vacation to spend time with loved ones, not to get away from them!
At Cedar Lodge Texas, we do our very best to blend these three elements seamlessly into each guest’s stay. Without the proper combination, you could wind up walking away disappointed with how your experience went. However, we’re fairly confident in saying that each and every member in the family will find something on or near our property that they’d love to do.
Here’s what makes Cedar Lodge Texas the best family vacation in Texas
Playing Games in the Game Room
Depending upon the time of the year you decide to visit, there are times when it’s better to be indoors. Whether the weather gets too hot or the rain gets too heavy, you can find yourself wanting some indoor activities. Luckily, we have an array of indoor games for kids and adults to enjoy in our game room. Ping-pong, pool, and foosball are a few of the favorites.
Sitting Around the Campfire at night
After a long day out in the Hill Country sun, one of the best activities is simply to sit back and relax. Guests who’ve stayed with us in the past often let us know how great of a time they had spending time around the campfire and enjoying a great conservation with their loved ones. S’mores, a crackling fire, and a picturesque Lake Buchanan sunset are a recipe for success.
Taking a Pontoon Boat Around Lake Buchanan
A family vacation in Texas in not complete without time spent on the water. At Cedar Lodge Texas, we have access to Lake Buchanan, one of the best lakes in Hill Country. With so many ways to spend your time on the lake, we have a hard time recommending just one activity.
However, if you’re looking to get the whole family involved, renting a pontoon boat could not be more highly recommended. It gives you the chance to roam around on Lake Buchanan and even enjoy a lunch or drinks while cruising along. All you have to do is let us know what time you want it and we’ll schedule the rest.
Cruising Through the Water On a jet ski
Maybe a pontoon boat is not your speed, and you’re looking for a water activity with…more speed. Jet ski rentals are the perfect opportunity to release some adrenaline and zip around the lake for some high paced fun. Once again, all you have to do is let us know when you’d like to use them and we’ll handle the rest.
Having a big family feast in the great hall
One of everyone’s favorite activities, no matter how young or old you are, is eating. It warms the soul and also gives everyone a chance to hang out together. Our two gathering halls are the perfect spot to get your grub on.
Our meeting hall is suited to seat up to 40 people, with a fully stocked kitchen to whip up family favorites. Along with our indoor seating, there’s an additional picnic area and deck to enjoy your food outside. If you’re having a huge family reunion, the Great Hall is the perfect place to feed the masses. With seating for up to 110 people, AC, WiFi, and a TV, there’s plenty of amenities to meet the needs of even the biggest family.
Jumping In the pool to cool off
While Lake Buchanan is an incredible place to cool off, it can get a little rough at times for kids to play in. Those looking to get wet need not worry, our swimming pool is the perfect alternative. Kids love playing in the pool and parents enjoy lounging around catching some rays. It’s the perfect balance of relaxation and playtime.
So when you’re thinking about where to spend your family vacation in Texas, just know the Cedar Lodge Texas has all the amenities to keep the whole family entertained. We’re pretty confident is saying that you’ll leave our property thinking about when your next stay will be!
