Set on the north side of Texas' stunning Lake Travis, Volente is a popular place to spend your days enjoying the great outdoors. While staying in this charming village, you'll have access to plenty of open water to race a jet ski across, as well as easy relaxation on the back deck of your own vacation rental with a view of every vibrant sunset, so you can have whatever kind of vacation you desire. Everyone will truly love spending a getaway in Volente!
Lovingly referred to as The Village of Volente, this small lakefront town is nothing short of charming and seals the deal if you're looking to escape city life. Lake Travis is truly unique with its constant curves and extending fingers of the Colorado River creating perfect nooks for anchoring the boat and swimming in the warm water for an afternoon. Only 20 miles west is laid-back Lago Vista for golfing and tasty food, and fun-filled Spicewood is 34 miles around the lake. If you want to take a day (or more) to explore an iconic Texas city, booming Austin is a mere 21 miles east.
No doubt much of your stay at one of our vacation rentals in Volente will be spent out on the lake. Don't have your own water vessel to bring? No worries! Volente is home to a handful of great boat rental shops, including Beach Front Boat Rentals and Austin Boat Rentals. Book a party boat and bring the entire group out for a relaxing day swimming, sunbathing on the top deck, and more. Take another day to rent jet skis, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and such - the possibilities are endless!
If you're looking for an activity the entire family will enjoy, visit Volente Beach Water Park, located right on the water's edge. Lake water is even pumped into the pools and a private beach area gives you access to the actual lake when you want a break from the heart-pumping waterslides. Parents can find time to relax at the swim-up Tiki Bar, and kids will love playing on the pirate ship.
Adrenaline junkies will hardly be able to contain their excitement over the Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. As the longest zip line in Texas, with five different courses, you're in for the adventure of a lifetime. With stellar views from up high, you'll still be soaring long after you're done.
After an incredible three-hour zip line tour, refill and replenish at a tasty Volente restaurant. Nik's on the Lake is accessible by land or by water. Park the car or tie up the boat and enjoy dining on anything from shrimp kabobs to a delicious cheesy pimento bacon burger while you look out on a glorious view. If you're craving Tex-Mex and a margarita, head to The Oasis on Lake Travis and watch the sunset across the lake over dinner.
