About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel

- San Marcos is a craft beer destination with 15 breweries within 15 minutes of the hotel
The Lakehouse Hotel & Resort has welcomed families and couples to the shores of Lake San Marcos since the 1960s when it opened as an intimate 75-room hotel. In 2013, the property underwent extensive renovations, nearly doubling in size to offer 144 guest rooms, suites and cottages. Throughout its makeover, the hotel maintained its focus on family-friendly entertainment with nostalgic activities like roasting s’mores, hula-hooping contests and board games.
All the rooms have Keurig coffeemakers, minifridges, walk-in rain showers and free Wi-Fi. Many rooms have balconies or patios with pool and lake views. Quiet hours are observed after 10 p.m. to accommodate younger guests’ sleeping schedules.
The expansive pool deck has two pools, hot tubs, fire pits and a seasonal outdoor bar. From the on-site marina, guests can rent paddleboards, kayaks and pontoon boats, and parents can enjoy in-room spa services. The library has a cozy fireplace and is the perfect place to pass a quiet evening with board games and shelves stuffed with books for all ages. Golfers receive member access to semi-private St. Mark Golf Club and St. Mark Executive Course.
When hunger strikes, guests can dine on the floating Dock Bar or sample a rotating menu of California cuisine upstairs at Decoy, looking out at the water. The Lounge hosts a daily happy hour from 4-6 p.m. and stays open late to serve cocktails and small plates.
