Secluded on the Lake
We were looking for a quick weekend getaway and stumbled on Painted Sky Inn. We booked 2 nights and, after staying the weekend, decided to add another night. The place was tucked away behind a small, quiet residential area right on the edge of Lake Buchanan. We stayed in the double queen room. The place has been there a while - probably built in the 40's or 50's I'm guessing - but the current owner has really made it into a nice getaway. The room was incredibly clean with 2 beds, a small bathroom with walk-in shower and a kitchen. It was nice to have a kitchen area with dishes, cookware and utensils to cook meals and not have to venture into town. The door to the back patio area is glass giving you a great view of the lake even when you're inside. There are grills for outdoor cooking and steps that walk directly down to the water off the back patio area. There's a fire pit they light in the evenings for guests to gather around. A private boat ramp and a great covered fishing pier that we spent most of our time on. The owner and staff were great and went out of their way to make sure all of the guests were happy and comfortable. We met several guests that come back regularly and we will most likely be joining those ranks! Thanks for a great relaxing weekend & hope to visit again soon!
