This lodge caters to people who enjoy being outside on a beautiful winding river and who want to be able to sleep a large number of family members. Two of the bedrooms have french doors that open out to a patio that overlooks the winding Guadalupe River. When you use the canoes, you can travel up and down the river viewing homes and farms on both sides. The river is quiet with few if any motorized boats.
This home is located on MeadowLake, the 4th lake in a chain of the 4 lakes on the Guadalupe River. Lake Dunlap, Lake McQueeney, and Lake Placid are just upstream. Being a little farther away from the Canyon Dam and Canyon Lake allows you to be away from the hustle and bustle of the large crowds. Go home to a nice relaxing place where mother ducks, baby ducks, and geese float calmly beside your dock. Bring your boat, canoe, kayak, jet skis, or fishing gear and enjoy the river. Relax or get together on the huge concrete patio overlooking the widest part of the Guadalupe River. Fish from the lower wooden deck just inches from the water.
