Adorable log cabins, rope swings, tubing on the back of a boat...vacation doesn't get more Texan that this!
About an hour and twenty minute drive from Austin, nestled on the shores of Lake LBJ, is Log Country Cove. You won't believe the size of this place - there are over 47 separate homes, ranging in size from one bed/one bath to six bed/six bath.
If you're driving there in the spring, check out Sweet Berry Farm on the way for picking fresh strawberries or blackberries depending on the season!
There are soaring log cabins with private pools, a well maintained area for gatherings including colorful chairs, a sand volleyball court, and even a rope swing. As the map shows this place is huge with cabins interspersed through the trees for a private escape feel.
They have a boat rental there where we rented a pontoon for about 2 hours for around $90. It came with a giant tube and we had a lot of fun twisting and turning up and down the river.
Log Country Cove is located at 617 Log Country Cove, Burnet, Texas 78611. Visit the Log Country Cove website for details about pricing and amenities provided in each lodge.
