OUR STORY

WHY US?

What makes Cedar Lodge Texas on Lake Buchanan so special and unique? It’s the people, of course! Bryan and Gwen, their family and staff, have created a place unlike any other. Here, you will be warmly greeted, treated like family and missed when you depart.

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

They haven’t always been in the resort business, although they’ve had a lot of hospitality experience throughout their lifetime. Having a heart for families, they offer a venue for reunions in order to support family connections in this busy day and age where more of us seem to be connecting through electronics.

Bryan, 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), multi-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 get to spend with their family.

They look forward to meeting you and hosting your family reunion or group gathering at a special piece of Texas Hill Country paradise…Cedar Lodge. Once you stay, you’ll know the answer to Why Us?

We loved our Memorial weekend vacation here at Cedar Lodge! The owners were very accommodating and resort was very nice. Loved that everything was so clean and in order. We’ll definitely return with my family and recommend to others.
