Why Owners, Dave and Louise Seideman chose Lake Buchanan

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.

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.

Beautiful Lodge with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay with family in this beautiful lodge. Dave the owner, was awesome and everyone loved his friendly manner and great personality. He told us the history of the Lodge and moving the wood from Wisconsin. His Grandfather would be proud and the kids were so glad they could sleep in the loft. He was an excellent host and we all enjoyed our time in the country. There were so many things to do as a group and we enjoyed the entire week fishing from the pier, boating along the shoreline, grilling out, campfires, roasting marshmallows and eating s'mores. A great place to celebrate Thanksgiving. We definitely will be back. It doesn't get better than that.

Clean, Relaxing and on the water

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This cabin is beautiful. Truly amazing craftsmanship. We had the most relaxing time. The cabin was so clean and slept everyone comfortable. They had a fire pit with lots of chairs for us to gather around and enjoy the beautiful scenery. This cabin sits right on the water. The view is beautiful. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the porch watching the many wildlife wake up. It is also close to wineries if you are looking to explore and get out. You will not be disappointed if you book this HomeAway. If you are looking for relaxation or fun on the lake this cabin provides it all.

Owner's Response: I'm glad it worked out for you. Please come back anytime. Thanks for not trashing the place. It's so nice when I come in after a tenant leaves and the place looks like there wasn't anyone there. Hope to see you again soon.

The lodge is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is first class! I had a group of 18 with me spend a long weekend up here. I also asked my wife to marry me here. If you want to experience the hill country AKA God's Country you should book a weekend here.

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.
