Why Owners, Dave and Louise Seideman chose Buchanan Dam

Lake Buchanan Lodge is located on the banks of Lake Buchanan. It's on 8 acres, so plenty of room for the kids to roam around on. The Lodge sleeps 16 so it's great for family Reunions.

What makes this lodge unique

It has a play scape for the kids. Horse shoes, BBQ pit. While the lake is low you can bring 4 wheelers and ride miles of trails in the lake bed. There is still plenty of lake but now there is added land to enjoys riding around it. The lake now measures 29 miles X 4.5 miles and that is when it's low.

Clean and homey

Our family came together for my husbands birthday

The house was well stocked for our needs and the weekend caretaker Mike kept us happy. The water was super fine! Our grandkids and the adults all loved the kayaks. Swimming in the cove was awesome! We were there for a hot Texas August weekend and the a/c was a welcome relief from the heat!

We couldn't ask for more. We will be back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that yall had a good time. I wish I could have been there to meet you but I had to take a detour to Oregon. My daughter was starting medical school and I needed to be there for her. I'm glad Mike helped out, he's a good neighbor to have. Hope to meet yall next time. Maybe you should come when it's cooler. Thanks again for being good tenants.

We felt right at home here. Our family get together was a hit. Dave made us feel like family. We loved the boat ride and the deer around the property. Such a great place with lots of character!

Owner's Response: I hope everyone recovered from the tubing behind the pontoon. Maybe next time we can go up to the falls on the boat. Great family, glad you got to experience the lodge. Thanks for cleaning up before you left, it's so nice when guests do that, it really makes it easy on the cleaning crew. I hope you come again some day, you are always welcome here.

Great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

I took a group of 16 (13 boys ages 14-18 and 3 adults) for a few days in June. We usually go camp in tents for our annual trip (somewhere cooler) but decided to stay in Texas and enjoy some creature comforts. All the boys enjoyed being able to have water access where we could get on the ski boat or take the kayaks out. In our down time they enjoyed being able to watch the NBA finals on the TV, or go outside and play some fun games of capture the flag on the property. There's plenty of space to roam around and the house is stocked well. It handled 16 "adults" quite easily and never seemed too crowded.

I'd love to come back and bring my wife and some other couple friends. There are 4 private rooms with queen beds and 2 "lofts" that each have 4 twin beds so it easily handles several different family units. Dave, the property owner was incredibly nice and was available if we had any questions. Thanks for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that ya'll had a good time. Looks like the boys got to burn off some energy, oh to be young again. We'd love to have you back again and thanks for being good tenants. Come back with the scouts or your friends anytime.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! My 3 brothers, brother in law and I have a traditional fishing trip every year. We usually go to the Texas coast but this time decided to fish for striper bass on Buchanan. Sure glad we found this great place to stay! Not only did we have a great fishing experience (50+ fish) with the guide that Dave (house owner) recommended, we also had a great experience with our lodging. This lodge was originally an old barn in Wisconsin that Dave transplanted to Texas and transformed it into a wonderful lodge. He handcrafted the woodwork out of old preserved boards and columns and decorated the place tastefully. The outdoor scenery was great - we saw many deer and even a fox. Plenty of room for a family or a bunch of guys! I brought my boat and had a great dock to tie it to. Lake Buchanan is a beautiful lake to explore as well. We all decided that this place is our favorite and all want to come back for our next excursion. Thanks Dave!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We visited Lake Buchanan Lodge for Spring Break. Two families of 4. Kids ranged in age from 8 to 17. Plenty of room for everyone to relax. We enjoyed watching the deer each morning while sitting on the very spacious front porch. Kids had fun kayaking, fishing and playing washers. Plenty of adventures to discover in the area. Highly recommend this Texas Hill Country home.

Map

Lakefront property. Lake Buchanan lake level is back up to full level. You have access to a boat dock and life is good.

We do have a volleyball court, horse shoe pits and tether ball pole for other things to do on the property. There is also a castle playscape for the kids.

We are also open for longer term rental for snow birds in the winter. This is the perfect place for snow birds to get out of northern part of the country and enjoy warmer temperatures and the highland lakes area. Call for special rates for long term rental.
