A Look Inside Cedar Creek’s Luxurious Long Cove Community

{{ oneIndex }} / {{ images.length }}


The serene shores of Cedar Creek Lake’s Long Cove community boast endless opportunities for second-home hunters to maximize their cherished free time. Created as a worry-free place to leisure, this resort-style planned community just an hour from Dallas is the work of Don McNamara, whose name you might recognize from his successful development of Cityplace and West Village. McNamara, who has owned a family home next to the property for 20 years, spent 10 years perfecting a plan to make Long Cove the go-to destination for affluent Dallasites, and it seems that it’s working.

A long list of amenities up Long Cove’s appeal. Resident Services can facilitate grocery runs, housekeeping, and catering needs. Give your boat valet a call and it’ll be cleaned, fueled, and stocked with ice before you even step foot on your dock. Guests seeking an alternative to water sports can take advantage of on-site golfing, hiking, and biking, or they can just kick back and enjoy live entertainment at the amphitheater. Whether you opt for a waterside cottage, lakefront home, or family compound, the price to make this family fantasy a reality starts at $1 million. HOA fees range from $525 for cottages (includes landscaping maintenance and irrigation) and $325 for custom homes.
