Thanksgiving 2015 review

  • 5 of 5

Best family Thanksgiving! From paddling around in the pond, to playing basketball everyone had a great time. The lodge is very nice. We were booked until Sunday but chose to leave on Friday because of approaching storms. My correspondence with Donna was a pleasant experience. Thanks for helping to make my family's 2015 Thanksgiving a wonderful memory!

Hood Family Reunion

Our family enjoyed a relaxing weekend at this beautiful lodge. We played pool, ping pong, fished, canoed, grilled and walked the trails! It was spacious enough for our large family! Memories were made and we hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of women for a weekend of Bible study and encouragement. What a perfect setting! The home is so nice and comfortable and the grounds just beautiful! Donna is really great to deal with and answered all questions before and during our stay quickly. We have already booked for next year! Cannot say enough good things about this property and owner! Thank you for helping make our weekend everything we wanted it to be!

Christmas at Reflections Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!..what a wonderful place and such accommodating management! We spent the Christmas holidays at Reflections Lodge. It was a perfect place for all of our family members to gather together for such a special time of the year. The lodge had more than ample room and so many things to do! We played ping pong, pool, and basketball...fished in the pond...walked the trails...spent time in the hot tub and had campfires along with delicious meals that were cooked in the very well equipped kitchen. The lodge management even allowed us to cut down our very own Christmas tree from their 100 acre property! If you are looking for a place to have a family gathering or a large get together, this is the perfect place. (Donna- Thank you so much for helping to make sure my family's Christmas together was a wonderful one! I so appreciated your prompt email responses and for going over and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time together. I wish you and your family a happy new year!)

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Reflections Lodge in May was great, we had a large group of 16 from all over the country convene for a weekend away from big city life. Donna, who manages the property, was great and professional throughout the whole process; she promptly addressed all of my questions and issues and was a pleasure to work with. The whole process was seamless.

The Lodge itself was even better than the pictures, it is huge and spacious and very well kept. There was so much to do on the grounds, we enjoyed walking the property, playing basketball, volleyball, and even frisbee golf. We didn't even scratch the surface of available activities.

The kitchen was also great, it had every imaginable utensil and appliance and ample plates, etc, for cooking on a large scale, not to mention two huge grills which got good use.

With Donna's directions it was easy to find and not too isolated, so trips out to Bastrop or Elgin for food and other supplies were easy.

Overall if you are looking for a a place to gather a large group for some off-the-path rest and relaxation or some outdoor activities, in this the place!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Nick, for the shining review! I'm so glad that the Lodge exceeded your expectations. It's quite a challenge to capture just how grand the place really is in a few photos. And I'm also glad that ya'll got to get out enjoy the great outdoors and some of the wonderful recreational opportunities that this unique property has to offer.
