The holidays are upon us, and we believe there’s no better way to spend this season than with the people you love most. Whether you’re cooking up a family feast, baking cookies with the grandkids, or curled up on the couch watching Christmas movies – these are the memories that your family will treasure for a lifetime.
But while spending time with family is one of our favorite ways to spend the holiday season, we’ll be the first to admit, it can be a lot of work.
If you’ve ever hosted your family for a holiday, you know it’s no walk in the park. From cleaning the house to ensuring everyone gets fed, it can be stressful to host family gatherings in your own home.
That’s why, at Willow Point Resort, we invite you and your family to make our resort your home away from home. Instead of worrying about preparing your house for guests (or the clean up once they’re gone). You can spend more time relaxing and less time making sure everything is going smoothly.
Located about an hour outside of Austin, Willow Point Resort sits on the edge of beautiful Lake Buchanan. With eleven lakefront cabins and an expansive lake house, there’s plenty of room for the whole family. We invite you to come to spend your holiday in one of the best family resorts in Texas. Here, your family can create memories that they’ll cherish forever.
Check out our seven reasons why Willow Point Resort is one of the best family resorts in Texas to spend your holidays.
1. Plenty of Room for Large Families
If you’re looking for an ample space to host your family, we’ve got you covered. With five bedrooms and four full bathrooms, our spacious Lake House is excellent for entertaining large families.
Each of the five bedrooms has multiple beds and will sleep a total of 25 adults. (Kids aged 3 and under are not considered part of the total headcount.)
In addition to the many bedrooms, there’s plenty of separate living space for everyone to enjoy. Check out the floor plan here.
Whether your group wants to watch holiday movies, play a card game, or enjoy the crisp Texas Hill Country air. Everyone can make themselves at home in either the indoor or outdoor living areas. With all the extra space, no one will ever feel crowded.
2. The Perfect Place to Share a Family Meal
There’s no doubt the holidays are all about eating great food and enjoying good company. That’s why it was essential for us to make our Lake House genuinely feel like a home.
With a fully equipped kitchen, including a fridge, stove, pots and pans, dishwasher, and microwave, the possibilities are endless. Spend the day cooking a homemade Thanksgiving dinner, bake some holiday cookies with the kiddos, or grill some burgers on the outdoor grill.
When you’re finished, you can gather around the dining room tables or the outdoor picnic tables and enjoy a delicious and memorable meal with the entire family.
3. Expansive Outdoor Space
One of the best parts of choosing to spend your holidays at one of the best family resorts in Texas is our easy access to the outdoors.
Located in the rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country, Willow Point is nestled along the scenic Lake Buchanan and surrounded by some of Central Texas’ most beautiful nature.
With over an acre of outdoor space, the Lake House grounds include a basketball court, volleyball court, large shaded backyard, and a private sandy beach.
With so much outdoor space at your disposal, you’ll be able to enjoy a quiet and peaceful retreat during the busy holiday season.
4. Lakefront Living at its Best
Nothing beats sipping your morning coffee on your lakefront patio or spending an evening watching the sunset over the water. This is one of the things that genuinely make our Lake House so unique.
With two covered patios and an expansive yard overlooking Lake Buchanan, you’ll feel like you have the whole place to yourself.
The large backyard of the Lake House extends out to a private beach where you can waste the day away soaking in those gorgeous lake views. By the end of your stay, you’ll be wishing you didn’t have to go home. Luckily, we’d love to have you back!
5. On-Site Family Activities
Aside from hanging around the Lake House, there are countless family-friendly activities available on-site.
One of the best ways to explore the surrounding beauty of the area is by taking one of our kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards for a spin. We offer a variety of on-site boat rentals ranging from jet skis to pontoon boats.
Witness first-hand all that Lake Buchanan has to offer from right on the water. In addition to boat rentals, our grounds also include a variety of games and activities that make for plenty of family fun.
Play a round of horseshoes, try your hand at a game of cornhole, or get competitive with a volleyball match. Please note that the community clubhouse is available for use by all Willow Point guests. However, we have added outdoor games (including a basketball court and volleyball net) on the grounds of the Lake House for private use.
Whatever you choose, you’ll be happy to spend some quality time having fun with the ones you love most.
6. Proximity to Popular Texas Hill Country Destinations
Willow Point’s location is another reason it’s considered one of the best family resorts in Texas! Being centrally located makes us an ideal home base for your Texas Hill Country getaway.
Surrounded by some of Central Texas’ best state parks, award-winning wineries, and scenic destinations, you’ll have plenty to explore.
Set out on a family hike at one of many state parks in the area, including Inks Lake State Park, Enchanted Rock, or Longhorn Cavern State Park.
In need of some adult time? Take an afternoon to head to one of the neighboring wineries. Some of our favorites include Fall Creek Vineyards and Torr Na Lochs. There’s truly something for everyone when you visit the Texas Hill Country.
7. Reduced Pricing
As an added bonus, we recently reduced our nightly rates! You can now reserve a stay at our Lake House for ONLY $695 per night instead of the previous price of $895 per night.
Come spend the holiday season in the beautiful Texas Hill Country at Willow Point Resort. We’ll make sure you feel right at home! With so many ways to enjoy time with your family, it’s no wonder why Willow Point is one of the best family resorts in Texas to spend your holidays.
