Canyon Lake Lodging

Canyon-Lake, located in central Texas, is not what one would expect of the “Bigger is Better” state. A hidden waterfront jewel, Canyon-lake has beautiful lakeside properties, waterfront accommodations, nature parks and even an abundance of wildlife. Canyon-Lake is the local vacation spot for Texans as they escape the big cities to take in some swimming, boating, hiking and golfing in this relaxing destination. Many Texans own second properties in Canyon Lake, which Owner Direct has made available to you as private vacation rentals. Whether “Bigger is Better” for you not, Owner Direct can accommodate your accommodation needs from large private houses to smaller condo rentals overlooking the lake.

Where you pick your condo rental depends on your desired scenery. Do you prefer to be right on the lake or in a park with stunning lakeside views while the wildlife visit your backyard? No matter which you chose, your accommodations will not be far from the lake or it’s surrounding parks. All of Owner Direct’s vacation rentals are strategically selected and most are waterfront or lake view house and condo rentals. With lodging all around the parks, a visit from a friendly animal may not be uncommon. Canyon-Lake is known for white-tailed deer, foxes and roadrunners.

Canyon Lake is loaded with eight public parks, 23 boat ramps, two marinas, campgrounds, golf courses and even a country club and a yacht club. Boating, fishing, parasailing and scuba diving (yes, scuba diving) are popular activities for this lake. If you’re looking to spend a day staying dry, hiking, dining shopping and golfing are all popular onshore activities.

For a smaller city, Canyon Lake has many popular tourist attractions besides the lake. The Canyon Lake Dam was constructed as a flood control system and also for water conservation. Today you will often find people jogging and exercising along the dam taking in the breath-taking view and fresh air. Guadalupe River is a famous river for tubing. On a sunny day, you will always find the river full of friends and family floating down the one to three hour ride. Vacation rentals are also available along this lively river. The Canyon Lake Gorge is a natural stunning geological site with natural limestone and erosion, and is available for guided tours. Canyon Lake also offers seasonal festivals popular to residents and tourists; be sure to check out the Canyon Lake Boat Parade and the Annual Christmas Parade.
