Vacation rentals on Lake LBJ in the beautiful Texas Hill Country
Owned and operated by the Koenig family since 1982
Rio Vista is actually very different in the summer than it is in the winter. During the summer months, the resort is abuzz with lake activities and water sports. Boats are being taken in and out of the lake on our boat ramp. The boat slips and piers are full of ski boats, fishing boats, and jet skis. Groups without their own boats rent our kayak or canoe, or have jet skis and larger boats delivered to our pier from boat rental businesses on the lake. People are swimming in the lake and swimming pool, playing ping pong or riding bikes. Families are playing baseball, bocce, pool, horseshoes or other games. You can smell the barbeque and hear the laughter. It is truly a fun place to be!
In the winter things change. The Winter Texans arrive from Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Canada, etc. They bring with them a zest for life and a happy spirit. They play golf, go antiquing, play card games, play pool, visit area sites and fish, fish, fish. As a group, we go out to dinner, have pot luck suppers, breakfasts and brunches. (Yes, a lot of our activities do revolve around food.) But, we also play bingo or Texas Hold'em and have Christmas parties, Valentine parties, St. Patty's Day parties, etc. - you get the picture. In the winter, we also have visiting bald eagles. There is an eagle's nest just six miles from Rio Vista, and the eagles stay well into April.
Winter or summer, people enjoy the area attractions, which include the Nightengale Archaeological Center in Kingsland, Longhorn Caverns, Inks Lake State Park, the Vanishing Texas River Cruise, several wineries, Enchanted Rock, the Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch, etc. In the spring, we are in the middle of wildflower country, and in the fall, we are in the middle of deer hunting country. Austin is a short sixty miles away, and San Antonio is only eighty-five miles away. But there are other interesting towns, such as Llano, Fredericksburg, Burnet and Marble Falls, each with its own unique charm. There are also many golf courses close by, and dozens of churches and retaurants.
The Senior Center has various activities for Senior Citizens, and it is only a few blocks away. The Library is one block away. There are park benches, picnic tables and barbeque pits available throughout the resort. Boat and jet ski rentals are delivered to our dock by Wave Chasers or Splash Boat Rentals.
And when you need a rest, you can soak in the hot tub, feed the ducks or the fish, vist friends, enjoy the beautiful sunset or sunrise, look across the lake at cattle and deer, or the great blue herons on the lake, and be grateful you're at the most beautiful resort in Central Texas. Give us a try, we know you'll love it.
