Lantana Lodge in Sabinal
Image GalleryMore Photos
This Hill Country getaway near Sabinal is truly special! Every stick of lumber in the Lantana Lodge is a labor of love, from the furniture to the guest home itself, crafted by hand by its owner. Located in the beautiful Hill Country River Region, the Lodge sleeps up to a dozen, and stands as a warm tribute to the couple who lived here and loved the land. That love is reflected in every room of Lantana Lodge, and in its pond and waterfall features, too. It's a personal experience to stay here!
When he got a sawmill, the owner sought hundreds of trees that would become Lantana Lodge, and his expert craftsmanship let him barter for most of the expense it took to build. The furniture, bed frames, deck, pond dock, and covered bridge are his creations, an extension of his family history offered to yours to enjoy. In that spirit, kids and pets are welcome!
The pond is perfect for catch-and-release fishing, and there are two kayaks provided. A fire pit sets on the pond's banks, with firewood included. Two shaded patios run the Lodge's length, and feature plenty of furniture. A picturesque stone walkway leads to a waterfall that fills a pool that's great for young children. There's a charcoal pit on the deck (for cooking; not a fire pit), and you'll also find horseshoes, corn hole, over-sized Jenga, washer boards and tail gate golf, vivid Hill Country sunsets, wild birds and much more! With safety in mind, a signed release is required to stay here.
Guests will love the radiant woodwork inside the Lodge! Fun, colorful touches like antler chandeliers, a mounted quilt, and a totem pole enhance the space. Comfort's assured with central air, ceiling fans, and an indoor wood-burning fireplace. The living area has three couches and a Roku-ready TV, along with Wifi. The kitchen includes appliances and cooking and serving ware, and the dining area has a 12-person table and eight bar stools! The utility room has a washer and dryer, industrial sink, deep freeze, commercial ice maker, and handy half-bath.
Three bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed and full bath, are named after concepts dear to the owners' hearts: The Whitetail Room, for the deer nearby; the Cowboy Room, for their love of John Wayne; and the Indian Room, since their parents were teachers on a Navajo reservation. The bedrooms have private entrances that lead to the patio. With additional trundle beds and queen-sized chair/beds, there's sleeping space for up to 12, and all beds and baths include fresh linens.

The town of Sabinal lies in Uvalde County in the southern Texas Hill Country. Its proximity to the Sabinal, Leona, Nueces, and Frio rivers has earned it the title of the "Gateway to the River Region." Therefore, it's no surprise tourism focused on swimming, tubing, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing on those bodies of water is important to Sabinal's well being.
