Is it just me, or is the Vegas all-you-can-drink uber-debauched stag/bachelorette party gone passe? Maybe I’ve watched “The Hangover” one too many times (OK, I watched it once, which may be one too many), I think so. Or maybe it’s just because I’m officially in my 30s, but what this dear CandysDirt.com reader is describing sounds just perfect.
Our dear reader is looking for some out-of-the-way bachelor party accommodations for eight guys to get their relaxing weekend on. Requirements: near a lake or river, within about an hour or two of Dallas, and plenty of room to get rowdy.
This sounds like someone who would really love a weekend stay at Long Cove, which is a perfect second home haven for lake lovers and weekenders on Cedar Creek Lake.
Read the full plea for help after the jump!
I’m a writer in New York, early 30s, and planning a bachelor party for eight active, outgoing guys in the Dallas area, where I used to live.
The groom is well past the age of Vegas/Hangover-style antics and wants something more low-key. So, I’m looking for a nice house or cabin somewhere outside the city to plan a perfect weekend packed with core summer guy stuff — grilling, fishing, tubing, volleyball, you get the idea.
He’s having a destination wedding, so most of us have already invested quite a bit on his behalf. I could probably squeeze another $200 or so out of everyone—putting our budget around $1,600 to $2,000 for two nights, plus the inevitable extras like food, gas, etc. We’d probably be willing to drive 90 minutes, maybe 2 hours from downtown Dallas.
I’d like to find something truly special — a big, impressive, beautiful place with plenty of things to do on the property where eight guys could comfortably stretch out.
If there’s easy access to amenities like boat/jet ski rentals, golf, etc., even better. The more we can fit into two nights, the better.
