  • Perfect Hill Country Getaway! Highly Recommended! Fantastic Owner!

    "My husband and I were visiting Boerne, TX for a wedding and selected this location because we had three other family members staying with us (5 people total). The rooms were gorgeous and very spacious--each of us had our own room, and own bathroom. The master bedroom even had its own private entrance. Additionally, the house's location is perfect--it is only a few minutes walk to downtown Boerne. I found our family spending the majority of our time on the screened-in porch. It being screened-in made it perfect for enjoying a Texas summer night without getting mosquito bites. The owner of the house was also a delight to work with. I've been using VRBO.com for many years now and she is second-to-none. She was very timely with her responses, the house was in perfect condition when we arrived and their were no surprises! I have no doubt in my mind that i would recommend this place to families looking to get-away and into the beautiful Texas Hill Country. I can't wait to visit again!"

  • Great place

    "Fabulous location. Couldn't ask for better or easier river access. Condo was spacious and well appointed. Rental process was easy. You can literally wade across to Schlitterbahn."

Lake Buchanan Travel Tips

Lake Buchanan Vacation Rentals for the Perfect Getaway in the Highland Lakes

One of the jewels in the Texas chain of lakes known as Highland Lakes is Lake Buchanan. It is situated between the Deer Capital of Texas and the Bluebonnet Capital, and remains scenic and uncrowded. This man-made lake is 30 miles long and five miles at its widest point. It is the perfect destination for a relaxing vacation with family, friends or a loved one, and is beautiful in all seasons.

Lake Buchanan Vacation Houses Provide a Wide Variety of Things to Do

The wide open Lake Buchanan is surrounded by limestone and granite hills offering a host of different activities. Canyon cliffs and waterfalls provide some beautiful photographs and memories. Nature lovers will be able to watch herons, mallards and bald eagles. Fishing enthusiasts can hook trophy-sized bass, stripers and catfish. Swimming, sailing, boat trips, windsurfing, Jet Skiing and more can all be enjoyed from your Lake Buchanan lodging. Hike the trails, ride the zip line, or trek on horseback through the unspoiled natural surroundings. The Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park provides 940 acres of protected reserve which is home to many threatened and endangered birds. It is a great place for hiking and nature-spotting. For a change, head to one of the local towns for antiquing, gift shops and local restaurants.

Getting to Your Lake Buchanan Lodging Is Easy

Lake Buchanan is centrally located, 200 miles south of Dallas-Fort Worth, 200 miles west of Houston and 95 miles north of San Antonio, so it is very easy to reach by car or truck in two to three hours. The closest airports to your Lake Buchanan lodging are the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, 59 miles away in Austin, or the San Antonio International Airport which is about 83 miles away.

Discover the Local Sights from Texas Hill Country Vacation Rentals

The area around Lake Buchanan is known for its local wineries which make for a fun day out. Tour the facilities, see the vines and learn the tricks of the trade. Finally, taste the produce in the tasting room and pick up a couple of bottles for the evening.

Head out and visit the Buchanan Dam which was the longest multiple-arch dam in the U.S. when it was built. Close by is the privately-owned lighthouse which can be seen as you drive along the south end of the lake. Dine out at one of the waterfront restaurants which provide steaks, fish, Mexican food and more, or take a scenic wilderness tour aboard one of the boats which offer two-hour trips along the historic Colorado River Canyon. They have two observation decks for spotting wildlife, bald eagles and the cascading waterfalls.

Kingsland is a small unincorporated town of about 5,600 residents. From here, you can hire a boat and sail up the Llano River. Just upstream from Kingsland, “the slab” is a popular gathering place on the sandy beach. The area is best known for its fields of bluebonnets which flower from March through May, and are a spectacularly beautiful sight.

Great Reasons to Choose Texas Hill Country Vacation Rentals

Visitors to Lake Buchanan are generally looking for a peaceful and relaxing time in a comfortable home-away-from-home accommodation. Lake Buchanan vacation rentals offer high standards and are fully equipped with all you will need for the perfect vacation. Sit out on your private boat dock and watch the sun set over the water. Take time to drink in the beauty of the surroundings or spend a day fishing in solitude. Alternatively, sit beneath the shade of the large pecan trees for a picnic meal. Lake Buchanan vacation houses provide plenty of space for large or small groups, and often include extras such as boats, kayaks, grills, fishing tackle, games or even an outdoor hot tub.
