Columbia Lakes Resort Hotel

Columbia Lakes Resort Hotel has made major strides since new ownership and management took over in January 2006. Billy Verkin, Operating Owner, has invested tremendous time, energy, and financial resources over the past year and will contribute even more over the months and years ahead. Columbia Lakes Resort Hotel is already superior to other resorts in the Houston and Gulf Coast area; however once the scheduled renovations are completed over the coming months it will become the premier destination for social and corporate events, real estate, and travel accommodations.

Wireless high-speed internet is available to all areas of the Resort, the installation of sophisticated property management and top-of-the-line sales and catering software, and renovation of the facilities and grounds are just a few of the numerous improvements that have been made at Columbia Lakes just over the past year. Most notable is the ongoing renovation and updating of the Villas as well as the complete renovation of the Hotel scheduled for January 2007.

Billy Verkin is Galveston-born and has been a prominent figure in the Houston Real Estate Market for 35 years. He has enjoyed success throughout the United States in commercial and residential development, as a restaurateur, and in film and movie production. Billy Verkin is also a very generous supporter of foundations such as Race to Erase MS, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Family Services of Greater Houston.

We have received many words of gratitude from the employees and residents of Columbia Lakes who have long awaited an ownership company with the financial capability and willingness to complete the needed renovations to the development and are excited to hear of the upcoming projects Billy Verkin has scheduled for the near future.

We cordially invite you to escape the hectic bustle of the city to unwind in relaxed comfort and tranquility. Columbia Lakes Resort, less than one hour from the Houston area, is a full service resort and conference center with an atmosphere of distinctive style and comfort that lends itself to any agenda. It is the perfect place; offering a touch of home in the midst of a complete resort.
