As the kids splash around in the water, you look off into the distance and soak in the feeling of the warm sun on your skin, the smell of fresh trees in the crisp morning air, and the sound of laughter and a million memories…. Finally, you are free to kick up your feet, rest your mind, sip on a cold beverage and enjoy that sweet family time that you’ve waited for all year long.
Those moments are rare, and, if you ask us, they’re important. Family vacation binds us together with the ones we love, giving us stories to tell over and over again, and memories to hold on to for a lifetime. Needless to say, where you choose to go is important, too. You need a place that has unique and engaging activities for the kids, enough comfortable and luxurious space for the whole family, and plenty of relaxing ways for the adults to indulge and escape.
From the mountains, to the beaches, to everywhere in-between, that kind of paradise is hard to find. But in the wide-open plains of Texas where opportunities for adventure exist in plenty and where luxury is the standard, the impossible is made possible. You call it paradise; we call it Rough Creek Lodge and Resort. Here are just a few of the many reasons why Rough Creek really is the perfect place for a family getaway.
We Have a Variety Of Accommodation Options
Depending on the size of your clan, Rough Creek has many accommodation options to choose from. Whether you’re in a standard room or a suite, the lodge offers a front-row seat to all the action. The rooms are luxurious and ideal for a weekend of family fun.
Looking for something a little bigger? Our glamping cabins are your perfect solution. Located just around the corner from the lodge, your family can experience life on the ranch with views of the wide-open fields, rocking chairs on the screened-in porches, hammocks beneath the shaded backyards, and freshly cooked food from the full kitchens. Some even fit up to 16 people, so even when the extended family tags along, you never run out of space.
Maybe you want to stay for a little longer (who doesn’t), so If you can manage to extend your vacation, the Residences at Rough Creek Lodge will blow you away. Whether your family is big or small, these newly built vacation homes are available to rent or own, and they are the most gracious of hosts. Each one has its own name, its own unique style, and its own definition of fun, so whether you like to play cornhole on the grassy lawn or take walks along the lake, they are sure to be a crowd-pleaser for any family.
Our Gourmet Dining Experience Has Something For Everyone
We all know that family time is made that much better when it’s spent over a meal. Now, how about one that has three gourmet courses? If more food means more fun family vacation, Rough Creek Lodge and Resort will top the charts. From the three-course gourmet dinner to the breakfast buffet fit for a king, our main dining room has something to appease everyone’s palates- no matter their age. And you don’t even have to worry about who will clean the dishes.
Our Resort Style Pool Is Fun For The Whole Family
Our state-of-the-art family pool is worth the trip all on its own. Complete with a lazy river, complimentary inner tubes, a waterslide, kiddie pool, hot tub, and beach area, our pool curates laughter and lifelong memories. The best part? Without lifting so much as a finger, you can get poolside service underneath the shaded cabanas. Now that is what we like to call family fun. French fries and umbrella drinks for everyone!
You Can Go Horseback Riding
If your family vacations usually include an excursion or two, consider it done. You can book a guided tour and explore the 11,000-acre property on horseback as you take in the open sky and the wildflowers.
Or Zipline Through The Big Texas Sky
If the horseback riding tour had you craving some more adventure, get geared up for the zipline and take a wild ride 650 feet across the property. This is an experience so insta-worthy, your kids will thank you for a lifetime.
Enjoy Complimentary Water Sport Rentals
This one’s for all the people who can’t consider it a family vacation unless a kayak is involved (we hear you). Head down to the dock to grab a couple of kayaks or some fishing gear and keep those age-old family traditions alive!
Tee Up At Top Tracer Range
If golf claps and visors aren’t usually your family’s idea of entertainment, they’re about to change their minds. Our Top Tracer Golf Range isn’t just a casual game of putt-putt. With food and drink service, a shaded lounge area and giant tv screens, golf is a family activity that will leave everyone gleaming.
Take Advantage Of Our Many Childcare Options
Last but certainly not least on the list of family vacation essentials: childcare. Oh yes, it is as good as it sounds. Whether you hire one of our on-site private babysitters or let the kids run wild every afternoon at kid’s camp, they will have tons of fun while you have some time alone to recharge.
Whatever family vacation means to you, we here at Rough Creek will meet you where you are to ensure that your time with us is every bit as special as you want your kids to remember. When you stay with us at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, we will work with you to plan a trip that checks off every item on your family’s bucket list. But don’t just take our word for it. If you’re as sure as we are that this is a perfect family vacation in the making, email us to find out more about how to reserve your stay.
We’ll see you on the ranch soon!
