Default Lakeway resort and spa, need info

Can anyone recommend this resort? it is located just out of Austin on Lake Travis,
also what would the normal temp be around the beginning of January ?
Thanks for any info.

I am asking cause I have an opportunity to go as a guest, expenses paid- but will require me to use up some of my vacation time to make room .
What else is around the resort to visit or must see , looks like we may be ther around 4 to 5 days if I participate.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

The golf around the area is fantastic! If you enjoy golf, try to get on the University Golf Club ( http://www.utgolfclub.com/Club/Scripts/Home/home.asp ) or Barton Creek ( http://www.bartoncreek.com/ ). Lakeway resort is one of the nicer resorts, but not the newest of resorts. January can be one of two things ... it can be 70 degrees and then a "BlueNorthern" can roll in at anytime and drop the temp 40 degrees in a matter of minutes along with 30 mph winds. Austin is a great town. The lake is nice, but it won't be rockin in January.

One of the more popular places for lunch is The Oasis... It sits on the cliffs over looking the lake about 500' up.

Thankyou for the information, I am leaning towards taking the vacation time and visiting Texas again. Last March I checked out San Antonio, only stayed one night then it was off to one of the smaller towns to stay in a rustic log cabin and enjoy some driving around the hill country and some great Bar B Q at this place.


I think I was told Golf day was already booked but I do not know where at this time , I really don't care cause I play crappy golf anyways. I might even take a pass on the golf and visit the city of Austin instead.
I really enjoy Texas when I visit and it is on my list of places to retire. So far been to Dallas/Fortworth, San Antonio couple times now and waiting to see Austin. Will just have to hope that a north wind does not show up. The restaruant on the top of the cliffs looks like a spot I would have to go eat dinner and view the sunsets.
Thanks again

Cooper's...So someone got you out to Llano...lot's to do out there (just kidding). Well, actually, you might have gotten by some of our hillcountry wineries.

Here's a few place's I always stop by when there... Lunch: Guero's on Congress ( http://www.guerostacobar.com/ ) Get the Tacos Pastor plate. Margaritas are good...but small...drink a beer instead. Food is great and I always get the Pastor Plate. For Bar B Que you have to try Stubbs ( http://www.stubbsaustin.com/ ). We usually hit Stubbs later for a cold one or 4, a great sandwich and some good Austin music.

Enjoy your trip...It's real hard not to have a great time in Austin and the surrounding area.

Thanks for the tips, we went to Llano's just for coopers pit, also seen a nice Bald eagle nesting just out of town.
went to Lukenboc (sp) also for a few long necks and just to say weve been there.
we had stopped by a winery also but cannot recall the name, nice place though.
Again, thanks for the reference's on places to eat , love that Texas Bar B Q

A great place to eat in the Lakeway area is Hudson's on the Bend. It is excellent. Don

Hudson's on the Bend will be added to the list, thanks. I was also told for Bar B Q to make sure I got to a place called the County Line.

County Line is ... I'll call it ok. It is a chain, but it is good for a chain.

If you haven't been to Gruene ( http://www.gruenetexas.com/ ) (pronounced GREEN), you need to make the hour drive south. If you're with a lady friend, she'll love it and so will you. When there, eat at the Gristmill ( http://www.gristmillrestaurant.com/ ) and be sure to stop for a cold one at the dancehall ( http://www.gruenehall.com/ ).

Also, there are a couple little "icehouses" on the river there for a drink. You will see a zillion Harley's and such if the weather is nice. One of the places everyone talks about once they go.
