Buchanan Dam, Texas

For your next Hill Country getaway, let this delightful Buchanan Dam vacation rental house serve as your cozy lakefront retreat! Situated directly on Lake Buchanan, the second largest of the Highland Lakes in Central Texas, you'll find that this wonderful property offers everything necessary for your ultimate home-away-from-home.


You'll find this pleasant residence ideal for your upcoming getaway with friends and family, offering 3 bedrooms plus a bunk room, 2 bathrooms, and enough room to comfortably sleep 13 guests throughout 2,000 square feet of living space. If you're traveling with a larger group, this property sits directly next to a second vacation rental home! Inside, comfortable furnishings and vibrant decor make the home feel bright and inviting, offering a delightfully cozy atmosphere for your stay. After an unforgettable day on the lake, rinse off in the outdoor shower, before settling down in the living room to watch your favorite movies on the large flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player. Later, prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the spacious kitchen, and then gather around the sizable wood table in the adjacent dining area to enjoy your family dinner. You may also choose to dine al fresco on the expansive covered deck, where you'll find a gas grill and ample patio furniture for entertaining.

You're sure to experience the best of outdoor living here! Sweeping views of Buchanan Dam, 3.5 miles of Lake Buchanan, the community's lit pier, and towering trees create a beautiful backdrop for your time spent relaxing in the expansive exterior. While you admire the views, sit under the shade of the trees and relish in the refreshing lake breeze. In the evening, gather around the private fire pit to toast marshmallows and tell stories with your companions. All the other amenities you need to feel as relaxed as possible are here, including wireless internet access, in-unit laundry machines, and air conditioning for your comfort, as well as a fenced area with doggie-door for your animal friends!


You'll quickly realize that this property is ideally situated to experience the best of Buchanan Dam! Look forward to spending your vacation days swimming, boating, and fishing on Lake Buchanan, which you can access mere steps from the house. For more thrilling water sports, the community offers kayak, jet ski, and boat rentals for your convenience. Throughout your stay, you'll get to enjoy numerous amenities within the RV park, such as a community fire pit, laundry houses, and a dog run, situated in the center of the park.

Should you find yourself on land, venture 20 minutes to Enchanted Rock or 10 miles to Longhorn Cavern State Park for spectacular sights and a variety of hiking trails. Additionally, the quaint town of Buchanan Dam features a wide array of antique stores and local restaurants, as well as several nearby taverns that fill up with two-steppers in the evenings! For more adventure, try zip lining, spend a day at the local water park, or venture to the nearby slab for some swimming. There's no better place for motorcycle riding than the Hill Country - Wind through the country roads while enjoying beautiful wildflowers and trees. Plus, you'll get a glimpse of the castle on Park Road 4! You may also want to pay a visit to the nearby Gotham City Aquarium and Petting Zoo to scope out a wide range of wildlife. A 55-minute drive will take you to Austin, where you can experience the wide range of activities offered by the capital city.

Not terrible not good though

  • 1 of 5

View toward lake was nice but the Rv Park was not well kept. Nowhere I saw was it said THE ROBIN HOUSE was a double wide trailer. One bathtub was old and stained, other shower filled with water- drained so slowly as you showered. The beds were terrible- mattresses were slanted downward toward our heads. THERE WERE ROACHES IN THE KITCHEN- so gross even got in our food. We would not stay here again or recommend it at all

The house was great for the price! We had a group of around 14 and had plenty of room for all of us. The lady that manages the property was very nice and helpful if we needed anything.
