Spring Break 2018

  • 4 of 5

A short drive from Keller, Texas took us to this beautiful little spot on Cedar Creek Lake. The fishing may not have been great, but the peacefulness and serenity more than made up for that. The grandkids loved the game room and kept them occupied for most of our stay, while the adults simply relaxed and spent the evenings around the firepit. The living areas were ample enough to accommodate our group of 10, and felt very comfortable. Look forward to being here again, especially when the weather is warmer.
