Top 10 Romantic Hotels in Austin
More than 400 acres of wilderness luxury just a short drive from Austin.
It is said that everything is big in Texas, and this riverfront property certainly proves the rule. Set on more than 400 acres about 30 minutes east of Austin, the resort has 492 guest rooms, whose uniquely Texan décor incorporates rich leather accents and ironwork. While the style may be a bit old-fashioned, all rooms have flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access and multi-line telephones. In addition to world-class golf and a full spa, recreation includes canoeing the lazy Colorado River and horseback riding through pine woods. Quite the Texas anomaly, this Lost Pines region is an island of pine forest within Central Texas. The fire of 2011 sadly devastated much of the state park, but the resort grounds survived unscathed. The collection of restaurants and bars offers something for everyone, from Stories Fine Dining Establishment to Shellers Barrelhouse Bar and Grill. After a day on the par 72, eighteen-hole course, golfers can head to Major Neighbors Grill for a burger and beer. More than 60,000 square feet of meeting space is available, as well as 230,000 square feet of outdoor function space that takes full advantage of the wilderness setting.
