Nestled in the shade of a heavily wooded protected cove, Cherokee Village Resort displays a natural Lake Whitney atmosphere. As Central Texas’ best kept secret, Lake Whitney has been officially recognized by its state legislature as the “Getaway Capital of Texas”. Resembling a Texas Hill Country lake, without all the lake traffic, Lake Whitney’s 23,500 surface acres of clear blue water and 225 miles of shoreline are sure to satisfy a broad variety of interests.

Our newly rebuilt cabins and cottages are the perfect place to relax after an active day on the lake. Each offers a unique, home style décor and is equipped with powerful air-conditioning, quality bedding for your sleeping comfort, televisions with game ports, and wi-fi capability. Every cabin and cottage has a fully equipped kitchen which includes a refrigerator, coffeepot, microwave, and stove with oven.

In recent years, Cherokee Village Resorts has made considerable improvements in landscaping with native vegetation that attracts and sustains native wildlife. It has incorporated into the landscape natural safe havens with food and watering stations that provide protection from predators. In recognition of this effort, Cherokee Village Resorts has been recognized by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as a Texas Wildscape.

Cherokee Village Resort’s northeast lakeside location means easy access from the I-35 corridor. With less than a 2 hour drive from most DFW metroplex locations, under an hour from Waco and no more than 3 hours from Austin, Cherokee Village Resort provides a great central location for private getaways and reunions, retreats, and conferences. Our Reunion & Retreat packages accommodate small family reunions, large church retreats, and off-site company meetings – from 14 to 60 people. Boat rentals are available to overnight guests.

Cherokee Village Resort’s natural terrain has been enhanced by incorporating habitat that attracts wildlife such as butterflies and birds. As a “guests only” secluded getaway, Cherokee Village Resort offers privacy without public distraction. Come and enjoy beautiful Lake Whitney’s towering limestone bluffs, clear blue water and protected coves in cozy comfort, at one of the cabins or cottages at Cherokee Village Resort.
