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!

Clean and tidy
Room and grounds of inn were clean and kept up very nice. Located on a peninsula so very nice views of the lake. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. I thought there was more to do within walking distance, like hikes and a beach area for swimming, but we actually had to drive to Inks Lake State park and the Longhorn Caverns for that. The inn is located at the back of a neighborhood, so there was no hiking onsite. There was also not a good swimming area to just jump into the lake. Unless you have a non-standard room, there is no private back balcony or patio- it is shared with shared grills. Better for a family environment with kids- not so great for a romantic quiet getaway.

Fantastic view and beautiful sunsets.
By far the best Inn we have ever stayed in. When you open the back door, you are literally right on the lake looking out on beautiful views. The fishing pier was great and my family had a great time with the canoe. LOVE PAINTED SKY INN!!!!

Great location on Lake Buchanon.
It was a very pleasant experience to stay at the Painted Sky Inn. The location is beautiful, right on Lake Buchanon. They had canoes and kayaks to rent for $15-$20. The room was a nice size. The only downside was comfort, the bedding was simple and the shower didn't stay warm long.
