    We have everything you need to make your vacation fun. There are 16 units to choose from including: Cabins, The Cottage, The Lakeside Suites, The Patio Unit, The Lakeview Unit and The Poolside House. All units are non-smoking and all linens, except for pool towels, are provided. Choose accommodations for 1 to 14 people.

    Valentine Lakeside Resort has been hosting family reunions for over 40 years. Some of our current families have been meeting here for thirty years or more. There’s a reason they keep coming back – friendly service and outstanding facilities.

    If you’re thinking about beginning a family tradition, just remember – summer isn’t the only good time of year. Try fall for cooler weather, spring for the wildflowers or winter for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years gatherings. We’ll be happy to help you with suggestions to make the most of your event.

  • Enjoying the Waterfront
    The quieter Llano River arm of Lake LBJ is a vacationer’s dream.
    And you should have seen the ones that got away!    Joan with fish Fish Caught on Lake LBJ

    Whether your ideal activities are water sports, fishing or relaxing and watching the boats go by, we have a spot for you.


    Our guest docks are among the nicest on the lake! Our docks are covered and most of them have lifts to raise your boat out of the water to protect it from waves and to keep that hull clean. No more “scum line” after a fun vacation on the water.
    We can handle boats up to 24’ on our lifts. Bigger boats can use the slips without lifts. We also have Jet-Ski ramps for your PWC’s. All slips are lighted and have GFCI-protected outlets so you can charge up your battery. You can launch from our concrete ramp and we have ample parking for your trailer.

    PWC ramps rent for $8 per day. Slips without a lift rent for $10 per day. Slips for boats up to 20’ with a lift rent for $14 per day. Slips for boats 20’ to 24’ with a lift rent for $16 per day.


    No matter what the weather or time of day, you can fish in comfort in our recently renovated, enclosed, lighted fishing house. A covered, outside deck allows guests to enjoy the breeze and serene view while bringing in crappie, bass or catfish – some of our most popular fish. April and October seem to be the best months for crappie, although they are caught year ‘round.

    Children and adults alike enjoy building fires in the wood burning stove – we supply the wood. Lots of kids have caught their first fish here. We make it easy by selling bait and small tackle. And don’t forget your camera!

  • Blue Bonnets Each spring our landscape and roadsides are blanketed with wildflowers – sometimes well into the month of June.

    Since some of the prettiest areas in the state are near Lake LBJ it’s no wonder that so many people stay with us while attending the Annual Bluebonnet Festival and enjoy the Wildflower Trail; and don’t forget the Crawfish Open, Art & Wine Trail and Spring Arts & Crafts Shows.


    Whether you’re relaxing in the hot tub, splashing in the pool,
    or simply sunbathing beside it, this is the place to unwind.

    With vacations, holiday weekends and the kids out of school, summer is the most active time at the lake. No other resort in the Highland Lakes can boast of having a heart shaped pool as well as a hot tub. The pool area is enclosed by a vine covered fence for a bit of privacy.

    Kingsland has a great Fourth of July celebration with its "Aqua Boom" activities, including street and boat parades, a poker run and an Arts and Crafts Fair. Our waterfront provides great viewing of the spectacular fireworks display.


    Fall and winter are among the best kept secrets about the Texas Hill Country. The weather is warm – not hot- and the nights are cool. This is a great time of year to climb Enchanted Rock, the country’s second largest monolith.

    The Hill Country is home to many varieties of birds, and even more visit as they fly to and from their winter homes. But some of the most famous birds – American Eagles – make their home right here. Visitors come from all parts of the world to see the three adult eagles tending their young in a nest just off State Highway 29.

    Valentine Lakeside Resort is a great place to unwind and share stories after a day of deer or turkey hunting. "Fish Tales" are not the only ones told here!

    Winter at Valentine Lakeside Resort


    It’s also a great time to gaze at the stars, roast marshmallows and make S’mores around our fire pit.


    Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather here with your family. Pick up pecans as they fall from our stately trees and treat your family to a fresh baked pie! Picnic on the lake

    The Hill Country really lights up during the Christmas Season – and Valentine Lakeside Resort is one of the best places to stay while you see it all. The Walkway of Lights in Marble Falls is a treat for all ages. In Burnet, Main Street Bethlehem brings alive the story of the Nativity and Christmas at Fort Croghan takes you back to life on the Texas frontier.

    Golfing in the Highland Lakes Area  

    If golf is your thing, then you can enjoy the various courses that are within a half hour’s drive from the resort; and because of the mild climate you can golf here year-round!
