G & Bo on their first date at Buckets & Boots
Prince Henry checking out the dock the day we adopted him!
Bo and I met at Possum Kingdom Lake (PK) during spring break of 1991. We reconnected in May 2012 when we spread my Dad’s ashes at the lake. We went to Buckets and Boots PK Fire Fundraiser for our first date, and Bo proposed to me on the porch of our PK condo. Our grandparents had houses right across the lake from each other! We have a lot of ties and memories here at PK, and it has always been home to us.
My grandparents’ lake house was just down the way from Scuba Point, which opened in 1960. I remember my Dad, uncle, and granddad grabbing gear from there when they lost their keys in the lake or went spear fishing. Don and Ruth Zahn bought Scuba Point from the Davis family in 2009 and turned it into an RV park. Sadly, Don died of cancer in early 2014. Bo and I were on a walk when we saw the “For Sale” sign. We arranged to look at it and it seemed like the perfect joint venture for us newlyweds!
We decided to name it Lush Resort in loving memory of our sweet and spoiled Maltese who loved hibiscus and the lake life. With a name like Lush, we have grand plans and have made tons of improvements:
Winter 2014 - added a five-slip floating courtesy dock with five jet ski ports, opened a gym, remodeled the lakefront pool, added a beach, new landscaping & opened a beer and wine Bar overlooking the lake
Winter 2015 - built new Lakefront Suite Hotel
Winter 2016 - opened a glass-enclosed lakefront bar and grill with full liquor license, expanded the dock to 8 boat slips and 4 yacht slips
Winter 2017 - built 11 hotel rooms, 4 bungalows, 2 more pools, and a new spa room for massages.
Winter 2018 - G & Bo are taking a break from construction!!!
Thank you all for your support and patronage, we strive to provide the best service so that you can enjoy the Lush Life with us!
