Quail Point Lodge was originally the hunting lodge of the ranch owned by the Lupton family and was called the “Quail Point Lodge” from the 1930s through the 1960s. It is located on 3.4 beautiful acres that slope down to the banks of Lake LBJ and also houses the POA offices and function rooms.
EARLY LODGE USAGE
Horseshoe Bay pioneer Charlie Keiser remembered the lodge having two bedrooms, two baths, and a screened porch. Dianne Jones had fond memories of the living area, with its huge wood fireplace, as a favorite gathering place for early residents. By the late 1980s, the fireplace was removed, and some renovation had taken place to accommodate the growing demand.
THE 1999 EXPANSION
The Horseshoe Bay Property Owners Association has operated from Quail Point Lodge since its formation in 1971. Early resident Dorothy Crockett commented on the 1999 expansion in her Highlander column: "A beautiful facility and we are pleased to have extra meeting rooms, an expanded kitchen area, larger offices, and the large lovely restrooms."
THE 2011 EXPANSION
Additional space was needed to accommodate increasing demand in what had become a town center. Expanding doubled the size to over 12,000 square feet at the cost of $1.3 million. In addition, the Founders Pavilion honoring the Hurd families was constructed at the water’s edge for a charming wedding venue and musical stage.
2019 AMPHITHEATER & PARKING ADDITION
Traffic congestion in and out of the parking area was eased by increasing parking spaces from 75 to 125, at a cost of over $650,000. Soil removed from the parking area during construction was used to makeover the back lawn area into a terraced, shady amphitheater with lighting in the trees that could accommodate 300 people.
