Lake Granbury is Full, and the Inn Awaits You!


It’s not too soon to dream about summer … and it’s time to enjoy Lake Granbury at its full capacity! For the first time in more than three years, the lake is filled to its brim. Guests always have a great lake view and now everywhere on the lake is full from the Inn’s scenic bluff.


It seems the rainy start to the year is great news for guests looking to jet ski, water ski, kayak, and boat. In fact, it’s not just the lake that’s full, the inn is seeing more guests sipping drinks and relaxing by the lake. Across our three acres, you’ll also find gorgeous lake views from our swings and sitting areas nestled under 250-year-old live oak trees.


Much is said about the lake’s glistening waters during the day but some say it’s nighttime when it’s most spectacular. Imagine the night sky reflected on the water. There’s a reason the Inn on Lake Granbury was honored as a top 20 weekend getaway in Texas.

We are so pleased the article points out that our historic town of Granbury has so much to offer travelers and tourists.  All of the downtown shops are within walking distance from our Granbury inn, and offer boutique style clothing, décor, gift items, and furnishings.   The renovated 1886 Granbury Opera House (pictured here) showcases professional talent in its year round plays and musicals.

Located on the historic downtown square are quaint restaurants offering everything from authentic German food to Italian at Farina’s, and steak and seafood entrees at the upscale Eighteen Ninety Grille.   The town is also known for “ghosts and legends” such as Jesse James, Belle Starr, and a rumored town visit by Bonnie and Clyde.  An historic downtown wouldn’t be complete without an “Old Jailhouse Museum”, which spins tales of sheriffs and their badges, a gallows, and jail cells from years past.  For lunch, Paradise Bistro and the Fillin’ Station are local downtown favorites for delicious sandwiches – both within a short walk from the Inn.  If you would like to sample fine chocolates and pick up a bottle of wine to bring back to your room at the Inn, be sure to stop by the Art of Chocolate and Wine Shoppe.

The award winning Revolver Brewery, known for its best of class “Blood & Honey” ale, is a short drive from downtown.   For wine lovers, Granbury also boasts D’Vine Wine personal winery and Farina’s Winery and Café on the Square, and two award winning wineries, Barking Rocks Winery, and Bluffdale Vineyards, which offer wine tastings, and winery tours on weekdays and weekends.
