Kings Island Castle, your next waterfront getaway

If you want to stay near the water on your visit to the Highland Lakes of Burnet County, book a few nights at Kings Island Castle. This Burnet County lodging, located on a tranquil cove of Lake LBJ, gives you the best of all worlds: a roomy, up-to-date, ranch-style home; spacious and scenic outdoor areas; easy access to the water; and a few extras.

Kings Island Castle’s expansive back deck and lawn truly put the “great” in the great outdoors, with plenty of places to sit, sip a beverage of choice, and admire waterfront vistas. 

To actually get on the water, grab one of two kayaks available and explore. There’s also a canoe. You can bring your own watercraft, too, as you’ll have access to a boat launch nearby. After your time on the water, you can rinse off in the outdoor shower before coming indoors.

A large, open living area makes an ideal gathering space for conversation, board games, or drinks. Turn on the big-screen TV for a movie or game or just peer through oversized windows at the Burnet County countryside. 

Nearby, a well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up a memorable meal and plenty of room for more than one cook. At mealtime, a bar and two separate dining areas can accommodate as many as 14. 

Chefs and diners also can move the culinary action to the back lawn, near the water. An outdoor kitchen, made of native rock, features a gas grill, abundant workspace, and four bar seats. Nearby, two tables seat 10 for waterfront dining.

With four bedrooms and 1½ baths, Kings Island Castle is a good fit for large families or groups of any kind; it can accommodate eight (or six adults).

There’s always much to see and do in the Highland Lakes, and some attractions, such as Perissos Vineyard & Winery, are just down the road. Order a tasting and sample the winemakers’ handiwork amid breathtaking views.

Back at your home away from home, gather ’round the backyard firepit after the sun goes down, roast marshmallows, sip wine, tell stories, watch the stars come out, and add to the fond memories of your Burnet County vacation.

Kings Island Castle is located at 251 CR 127A, Kingsland, TX 78639. To book, visit vacasa.com/unit/65577 or call 800-544-0300.
