“We'll Be Back!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This was our first trip to Port A, and we wanted a laid back, family friendly, and clean place to spend the week. You can't beat the location to the beach (walking distance if you aren't hauling half a village) and if you need a quick bite, there is a great pizza place just two doors down. The staff was super friendly and our cabin was clean with all the comforts of home. We loved the fun yet laid back atmosphere and though we didn't travel with our dogs on this trip, they will certainly come with us next time. Our only complaint was that not every cabin had an outdoor shower, and though it would have been convenient, we made due with a bucket and a towel to help keep the sand to a min while inside. Our neighbors were friendly, and you'd never know so many people were there with their dogs. We've decided to make it a family tradition moving forward, and can't wait for next year!

This was the third year in the same cabin and we were planning for next year before we checked out. Still the same friendly place. Cabins are clean and cozy. Very laid back place where you get to know your next door neighbors by the end of your stay. This year management had added a "Dog Wash" so you can give your dogs a bath after visiting the beach. Staff is amazing, they don't micro manage you, but are readily available if you need anything. It has a small town feel and allows you to accomplish what you came for, to enjoy a nice, peaceful vacation by the sea.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at A Laughing Horse Lodge. We liked the fun and funky decor. It is within walking distance to the beach and a lot of the shops, restaurants and bard in Port A. The staff were friendly and helpful and when we forgot what day we were to check out they graciously called to remind us and allowed us a little extra time to gather our things and check out. We like places with cooking amenities so the kitchenette and grill were much appreciated. We will come here again the next time we stay in Port Aransas.

Just got back from a very relaxing stay in Port A. Laughing Horse is the perfect place to stay while at the beach. Location, amenities, cleanliness and friendliness. This was our third time staying at Laughing Horse. They have redecorated with bright, beach colors...so nice. Can not wait to head back that way in the fall!

What the property lacks in fancy amenities it makes up with charm. Who needs a pool and fitness facility when you're visiting a beach? My three daughters enjoyed their room complete with bunk beds and they had plenty of room to play. The kitchenette had most everything I needed (except a baking sheet); we didn't dine out a single time. I did enjoy sitting and sipping wine in the evenings in the Adirondack chairs provided in the sand patio area. It was nice to be within walking distance to the beach and to shops. We will definitely stay here again.
