We can’t give you a single reason why weekends feel longer here.

Weekends just feel longer here. Maybe because it only takes an hour and change to drive here from Dallas on a Friday afternoon. Or because you never have to futz with your boat, the pool, or the yard. And considering all the entertainment options, weekends seem longer here because the fun is already baked in. A full-service marina. Miles of hiking and biking trails. Fishing ponds. Pickleball. Golf. Lakeside bonfire pits. Resort-style pools. A Play Field for sports of all kinds. A Toy Barn filled with sports gear and cruiser bikes. And 1200 acres to call your own.

A friend of mine has a lakehouse somewhere else, and he says he always has to be the entertainer, so it’s hard to relax. There’s so much to do here, everyone has fun – parents included!

Community is everything, period. Sure, there are other places you can buy a lake home, but the community is what really makes Long Cove worth a lot more. That’s one of the big reasons we built our own family lakehome here.

Everyday moments are what memories are made of.

Longhorns greeting you on the way in. Mist rising off Hop Frog Pond. Kids screaming down the waterslide. Magenta sunsets on the porch with a glass of wine and good company. Everyday moments are somehow extraordinary. Come visit and see.
