The Landing at Seven Coves
FEATURED PLACE TO STAY
BY MIKE PUCKETT
The Conroe, Texas, area is referred to by many as “Houston’s Playground”. Located just 45 minutes north of Houston on Interstate 45, Lake Conroe is the main destination for most travelers to the area. Although this beautiful area still retains a small town feel, in reality it is a fast-growing city. But, nothing seems very far in these parts, especially when you are used to driving in a major city.
The Landing at Seven Coves sits smack-dab on Lake Conroe in Willis, Texas, just 15 minutes from downtown Conroe. Built on a peninsula that juts into the 19-mile long lake, it is a premier resort for visitors to this beautiful area of Texas. It’s the perfect place to stay when you want to get away from it all, but would still like to have all the comforts of home.
Each apartment is a self-contained residential unit equipped with a balcony that extends over the lake. Seriously, you can fish from your balcony! During our visit, I witnessed a seven-year-old boy catch a 2-lb catfish this way. Super cool!
The Landing at Seven Coves offers one and two-bedroom apartments and the living room is furnished with a sofa bed which can accommodate even more. As you can see in the photography, there’s a full living room with couch and easy chair; a full-size table for family meals; and a well-equipped kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, paper towels, etc. In short, everything you need for a relaxing vacation getaway!
On the grounds in front of the units, everything is provided so guests can enjoy a fabulous BBQ! For every 3 or 4 units, a shared grill is available – along with an outdoor table so you can eat right outside.
There’s plenty of parking so you don’t have to haul your luggage and groceries very far from your home away from home. Another nice amenity is the centrally-located laundry facility. Here’s a tip: do all your laundry before you leave and then just put everything away when you get home.
There’s an abundance of activities for kids and adults all summer long; everything from Tetherball and Croquet to Ice Cream Socials and Hot Dog Cook-Outs. Kids will love the children’s playground along with a full basketball court which sits right off the lake. Grown-ups can relax and bask in the sun’s warmth on the beautiful balconies which extend over the lake.
Swimming is a great way to pass the time here when you aren’t at the lake or experiencing downtown Conroe. As you can see from the photography, there is a beautiful pool with a wonderful view that backs right up to the lake.
There is a boat ramp if you are traveling with any type of water craft. You can fish from just about anywhere on the grounds. There’s even an area with a sink near the deck where you can clean your fish.
There are many enjoyable activities to be found off the grounds as well. Nearby, you’ll find a 27-hole golf course. The Lake Conroe area also offers sailing, waterskiing, and water sport rentals. Excellent hiking and biking trails are close by as well; a great way to explore the Sam Houston National Forest and get some exercise.
As you know, our job is to venture out to accommodations and eateries suggested by our subscribers. We check them out, write up a review and, if the experience is top-notch, they get our stamp of approval. Well, the ink is still wet as The Landing at Seven Coves just got my stamp! We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back soon to a wonderful place that is truly a home away from home.
