If you’ve ever planned a large group outing, you know the hardest part: finding accommodations that suit everyone. Beach House 1 in Llano County is the easy answer for even the most diverse of interests. This sprawling property on the Llano River arm of Lake LBJ can house up to 24 people with ease and no squeeze.
A host of recreational amenities — indoors and out — will win over the most active in your group. The more chill-oriented will discover plenty of inviting spaces for reading, sunbathing, watching a movie, or just taking in this corner of Llano County’s natural beauty. A spacious open floor plan allows you to move about with a minimum of guest collisions, especially with five bathrooms.
Inside, the minimalist décor draws one to picture-window views of Lake LBJ and Packsaddle Mountain. Two living areas, one in the bunkroom (where three sets of bunkbeds are built into the wall) and the other near the kitchen and dining area, allow guests to spread out without being that far apart. Both spaces have big-screen TVs, and the former has an indoor basketball goal.
At mealtime, an expansive, well-equipped kitchen awaits your cooks and their culinary endeavors. Nearby, a long dining table seats 10 with bar and chef’s table seating for a dozen more. If you’re at full, 24-person capacity, plenty of overflow seating is available. An outside grill and ample dining spaces on the patio, the balcony, and the beach are also available.
Indeed, you might find it hard to stay indoors with this beautifully landscaped and activity-filled backyard. Take to the sandy beach for an afternoon of play and return to the firepit as the sun sets for marshmallow roasting, wine sipping, or stargazing. Anglers can fish from the private boat dock, which also has space to park your watercraft. If you didn’t bring a boat, no worry: Kayaks and paddleboards are available on property.
As the night winds down, the six bedrooms plus a bunkroom allow a generous amount of space for a good night’s sleep for all. For a little pre-bedtime relaxation, why not check out the state-of-the-art sauna?
When it’s time to pack up, check out, and say your goodbyes. You might be left with one regret: Like all special times, it ended way too soon.
Come back anytime. It’s where to stay in Llano County.
