There is much of nothing to distract you from the beauty of nature, as the property is an eco-lounge with only one tv on the property. But for diehards who are trying to escape the madness of the world, this 940-acre property with over 16-miles of groomed trails and 3-miles of private Lake Buchanan shoreline has a lot to keep you busy.

This unique full-service resort property will surely spark your interest. Opened in December 1999; the buildings were designed by the award-winning Lake Flato Architects of San Antonio and were patterned after 1920’s hill country homes with porches and rocking chairs that allow guest to relax and taken in the scenery and Lake Buchanan. Lake Buchanan, the largest bodies of water within the chains of lakes of Central Texas is most definitely the crown the jewel, which is why it’s such an asset to Canyon of the Eagles.

The Overlook Restaurant is where you will dine while spending your days and nights here. Imagine this; three walls of windows, a huge fireplace, and exterior deck that overlooks the Texas Hill County and Lake Buchanan. The setting is amazing for a casual or special dining occasion. The Overlook Restaurant (entrées $12-$32) has become the hottest reservation in town thanks to dishes such as the Canyon Chicken or the Ribeye Steak.

Eagle Eye Observatory is the resort’s dark-sky location and is considered one of the best astronomic viewing sites in Texas. For me, it was definitely a wow moment. With the elevation at approximately 1,100 feet above sea level, it makes for the perfect location for guest to learn more about the night skies. The observatory is a sliding-roof design which can be opened to give gazers an entire view of the sky. It’s truly remarkable and highly recommended. Canyon of the Eagles overnight guests have available private viewings for a fee, group rate fees may apply.
