Four-Star Resort with Championship Golf and Water Park
The 18th hole of La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa’s championship golf course begins with a blind tee shot. Players have to shoot over an imposing hill, aiming to land within the narrow confines of a pine-tree-lined fairway. The approach shot is even tougher: the hole’s elevated green is protected by a large bunker and an expansive lake.
La Torretta caters to guests of all ages with a wealth of family-friendly activities and amenities, including an onsite water park. Here you'll find five expansive pools, an in-water playground, and a lazy river. Teens can hang out in The Edge, a lounge equipped with a Wii and remote-control cars, or they can practice horseless polo on the mini-golf course. Tower superior one-bedroom suites have plenty of space for the whole family and feature panoramic views of Lake Conroe.
After a long day, refuel at one of La Torretta’s diverse dining spots. Prime restaurant offers contemporary American cuisine with open lake views and the option to eat alfresco. Yoi Sushi Bar pairs fresh fish with a variety of sakes and specialty cocktails. And at CoCoCove Grill, you can snack on comfort food poolside. Each evening, the party moves to Sonata Piano Bar, where bartenders mix martinis as guests take in views of the water park from plush sofas.
Montgomery, Texas: Lakefront Community an Hour North of Houston
La Torretta sits on the banks of Lake Conroe in Montgomery, Texas, located just an hour’s drive north of Houston. The 21,000-acre lake extends into Huntsville State Park, which itself connects with Sam Houston National Forest. For a rugged day trip, enter Sam Houston and hop onto the Lone Star Hiking Trail, a 128-mile stretch winding through the forest. Keep an eye out for deer, ducks, and the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker. The rare bird’s distinctive squeaky call can be heard from a considerable distance.
